About the owner: Semi-retired long term locals, with grown children and grandchildren all living in the local area too. Kirk came from Saskatoon after high school, and fell in love with this area and stayed. Gail has been living in this local area since childhood. We both know and love Vancouver Island and are happy to share our knowledge and home to make your vacation the best it can be.
In the summer while you are here enjoying our beach home, we will be enjoying ourselves at our recreational property at one of our local lakes.
Why the Owner Chose Qualicum Beach: We love to be close to the beach and the fish market at the marina. We enjoy the natural surroundings and wildlife of the forest in our private backyard, while still being close to everything.
It is a gateway to the wild west coast, Tofino, Ucluelet, and long beach for surfing! There are not too many places out of reach for an island day trip.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Very central quiet location close to the beach.
Private backyard with lots of birds.
Enjoy nature without leaving our neighborhood.
Well equipped modern house.
Very central location to many attractions, such as the Pacific Rim National Park,Tofino, and Cathedral Grove.
7 golf courses within half an hour.
The Canadian Open Sand Sculpting Competition and Exhibition is a major event every year, lasting two weeks or more. Check our local links to find out what entertainment and events are also planned for this year.
