Cobble Hill estate description

'For he on honey-dew hath fed and drunk the milk of Paradise' (Xanadu - a poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge)

Enjoy your luxurious, two bedroom, private suite for less than the cost of a B&B. This beautiful self contained Xanadu 1 suite is on a private 11 acre estate in the heart of the Cowichan Valley. You will overlook the dawn on Salt Spring Island, hear the eagles calling, and relax in your own piece of paradise.
NEW * 2nd luxury suite now also available* The new Xanadu 2 Suite has 2 large bedrooms, a King bed, and a Queen Bed, fireplace and all the same features as Xanadu 1!. Phone for availability as the new suite does not show up on the reservation calendar.

Your suite comes fully equipped with a wall mounted flat screen TV, Denon stereo, DVD player, and numerous games, books and CD's to ensure your relaxation and contentment. You have a beautiful kitchen, refrigerator, white cooktop, stainless steel microwave, pantry, all white crockery and quality utensils. Your spacious 5 piece tiled bathroom comes with luxury towels and amenities.

The master bedroom comes with a superb and deep pillow top luxury queen bed, his and hers closets, and Saltspring Island views.

The second bedroom comes with two twin beds, ipod stereo player, walk in closet, and a comfortable chair to enjoy your garden views.

Sit with a glass of local wine around the glass dining table, ease into the LazyBoy recliner, watch unlimited Netflix movies.

Wander outside to meet the friendly bunnies, birds and deer. Enjoy the warmth of the outdoor fireplace. Enjoy breakfast outside in the sun. For fitness folks there is a trampoline, for the rest of us, comfy lounge chairs.

Stroll down the tree lined driveway, and come to Arbutus Ridge Golf Course, whose entrance is truly just across the road. See how many golf balls you can find en route. Enjoy world class gourmet dining at the many close by wineries, pubs and seaside eateries.

For your convenience, there is a front loading washer and dryer, coffee and tea provided, and even a storage closet for your suitcases. There is a propane barbeque and outdoor play area for children.

For those seeking to escape Winter, Xanadu Estate is in the Cowichan Valley, which means the WARMLANDS, the warmest part of Canada.
