Property description

The location of this stunning home cannot be believed. Located right on a long sandy beach, 30 feet from high tide, with views of Hornby, Texada, and Lasquiti Islands. Great for a walk in bare feet while enjoying the salt air or taking it all in from the new hot tub. Or, you could get out your fishing rod and enjoy fishing on what is arguably the best fishing beach in the area. Arrowsmith Golf Course, an exec 18 hole course is five minutes away. Just 300 meters away is a pub with food and live music as well as another restaurant. An easy walk, no need to drive after enjoying a cool one.

The home is luxurious and modern, having just been totally renovated. With an open floor plan, the front of the house has floor to glass windows that allow you to see the ocean from anywhere in the living room, dining room or kitchen. Relax and enjoy the ocean, whatever the weather, from the cozy living room or while having breakfast at the dining room table.

The large, fully appointed gourmet kitchen features extensive granite countertops and a state of the art induction stove with convection oven. There is also a new propane BBQ on the large deck. The master bedroom features a king size bed and a newly renovated ensuite with 2 sinks, a separate shower and a soaker tub. The second bedroom is roomy and features a queen size bed. All beds have new quality linens, pillows and towels.

This house has all the comforts of home including high speed internet, 40 inch tv with surround sound connected to cable, DVD player, stereo, washer/dryer, air-tight wood fireplace insert.

Relax on the comfy furniture on the large deck. Attached to the deck is a hot tub that seats up to six people comfortably. It’s a great location to sit entranced by the waves lapping on the beach or the stars overhead at night.

There is so much to do – walk on the beach, watch the wildlife which includes seals, sea lions and eagles, go for a swim, or go fishing. Between Nile Creek and Big Qualicum River, this is one of the best fishing beaches on the coast. There are numerous golf courses within 30 minutes, including Arrowsmith and Memorial Golf Courses.

Great seafood abounds in this area and you can easily purchase fresh oysters from Fanny Bay Oysters or fresh scallops from Island Scallops. Locally caught fish are available at many stores. In the summer, there are wonderful farmer’s markets at Courtenay, Qualicum Beach and Coombs where you can buy amazing fresh produce in a unique atmosphere.

There are many parks within 1 hours drive including: Horne Lake Provincial Park, Englishman Falls Provincial Park, Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Park, Milner Gardens, Mount Washington and Cathedral Grove Provincial Park with its ancient trees.

Your days here surrounded by the ocean, forests and magnificent scenery will leave you with outstanding memories for you and your family.

For our clientele with allergies we have a no smoking and no pet policy.


Keywords: Luxurious, newly renovated home with stunning vews of Georgia Strait from the living room to the kitchen or in the hot tub on the large well furnished deck. Walk-on sandy beach just 25 feet away.

Little Qualicum Falls - about 20 minutes from the house. First site is the provincial park website and the second is images from an individual.

Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park, 20 minutes, a magnificent sandy bay at low tide, www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explore/parkpgs/rathtrevor/

Cathedral Grove - old growth forest. The forest was nominated as one of the seven wonders of Canada. I have included that link last.

http://www.cbc.ca/sevenwonders/wonder_cathedral_grove.html

Elk Falls Provincial Park near Campbell River an hour from here is found at,

http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explore/parkpgs/elk_falls/

Salt water Salmon fly-fishing - from our beach from mid-July to late October. You should check on what lures the fish will take in this area and can be purchased locally. http://www.nilecreekflyshop.com/nilecreek_8115.html

Fresh water fishing, Horne Lake and Spider Lake, 20 and 10 minutes away. http://www.bcadventure.com/adventure/explore/island/central/horne.htm

http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explore/parkpgs/horne_lk/

Kayak and paddleboard rentals can be found in Qualicum Beach, 15 minutes drive at Outsider Adventures at http://www.outsideroutdoorstore.ca; Courtenay, 30 minutes north of here at Comox Valley Kayaks and Canoes http://www.comoxvalleykayaks.com/; or Tree Island Kayaking http://www.treeislandkayaking.com/. The last two provide day trips to the magnificent Sandy Island Marine Provincial Park (also known as Tree Island) http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explore/parkpgs/sandy_is/ which we highly recommend or launch the kayak at the beach at Qualicum Bay, a nice semi-rural community. Close to Island Scallops (www.islandscallops.com), Fanny Bay Oysters, excellent oysters and seafood there are a number of places where you can buy fresh fish.

There are excellent farmer's markets at Qualicum Beach, 15 minutes drive, http://qbfarmersmarket.com/; in Errington, 20 minutes drive, erringtonfarmersmarket.ca; and Comox Valley Farmers Market in Courtenay, 30 minutes drive, http://www.comoxvalleyfarmersmarket.com/. All run on Saturday mornings, so if you want some fresh produce prior to checking in at 4 pm - these are great places to visit. There is a very excellent grocery store in Qualicum Beach (Quality Foods) and a good grocery store (Tomm's) at Bowser, 4 minutes north of the house. Bowser also has shops for liquor, gas, hardware, art, gifts, credit union, library and post office.

Getting here:

You will take BC Ferries from Horseshoe Bay to Nanaimo, http://www.bcferries.com/schedules/mainland/hbna-current.html

or from Tsawwassen to Duke Point, arriving fifteen minutes south of Nanaimo, http://www.bcferries.com/schedules/mainland/tsdp-current.html

These are current schedules, but it's good to check as the schedule can change. We recommend that you make a reservation as in the summer the ferries can get booked which can mean waiting for the next ferry. Once in Nanaimo - you take Highway 19A . We recommend 19A as it is the older route that follows the coast, slower but more scenic and takes about one hour or more. Highway 19, the freeway, takes 45 minutes and you use the Horne Lake, Spider Lake exit and drop down to 19A, Island Highway West, and left (north-west) for aprox., three miles to Qualicum Bay.

We are located at Qualicum Bay ... on the ocean side. The best landmark is the Crown and Anchor Roadhouse Pub on the other side of the road about 200 meters from the house. The pub has good local music (bluegrass, country, acoustic etc) and the food is pretty decent. The Sandbar Café, 300 meters is a pleasant restaurant with live music jams several nights a week and Henry’s Kitchen a Chinese restaurant near by. A burger stand, taco stand and ice cream shop open for the summer in the same area.
