Nanaimo chateau / country house description

Imagine waking up to the reflection of the sunrise on the ocean. Watch the eagles, heron, kingfishers, ducks even humming birds from this bird watchers paradise. Stay awhile and you are sure to see deer wandering down the beach, otters and seals playing in the ocean.

Enjoy this luxurious 2 bedroom suite designed and decorated to reflect the awesome nature of the surroundings.

The kitchen has beautiful granite countertops and stainless steel appliances include a gas range and of course a dishwasher.

There is also a gas BBQ on the deck and an outdoor wood stove available for summer crab feasts.

The master bedroom includes a queen sized bed, electric fireplace, spacious closet and sitting area with an amazing ocean view.

The second bedroom has two twin beds, with pull-out daybeds. Again, the vaulted ceilings and big windows frame a lovely water view.

The living room is comfortable with leather couches, a flatscreen TV, DVD player and another fireplace.

The yoga/art/dance studio has a separate entrance, mirrored walls, yoga and tumbling mats. It is a peaceful space to stretch, meditate, dance or draw. (please bring your own art supplies)

The hot tub is located at the far end of the house and has a 180 degree infinity ocean view. A lovely spot for either the sunrise or the sunset.

You'll find the trampoline past the fish pond, set in the forest. It is a favourite spot for kids, use at your own risk, but it does have a safety net.

Located just 10 minutes from the Departure Bay and SeaAir terminals, we are as little as a 1/2 hour from Vancouver. Perfect for a rejuvenating weekend away from the busy city.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: I traded in a banking career in busy Vancouver to live by the ocean and love life every day. After renovating and designing this property, we converted the west wing into a luxury ocean front suite. Lucky for you! Come and be transformed by a week of pristine west coast beauty.

                  Why the Owner Chose Nanaimo:
                  This is a unique south facing property with a virtually private beach. Honestly, we see more deer than people wandering the beach in any given week. The sheltered cove creates a warm, calm bay perfect for swimming, kayaking or mooring your boat off shore. It is a true island experience, without having to drive for hours, or take another ferry. Nanaimo is the second largest city on Vancouver Island and offers delightful entertainment, culinary and adventure options.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                  We are located only 10 minute from the Departure Bay ferry and SeaAir terminals, so your travel time is minimized. Yet we are far enough from the public beach to give you a true sense of peace and nature. For those sailors who need a weekend on land, what better place to moor and stay.
