Property description

**update - I have decided to rent my house out longer term to a family who live on a sailboat at the marina and who are having a new baby! So check back next summer - but thanks to everyone who has stayed so far - it's been amazing!!!

It's everything you want and more There is so much to enjoy around the town as well. An evening at the local pub or infamous Rock Cod Restaurant means you will be ready to take a evening stroll along the boardwalk and marinas enjoying all that nature and the splendid ocean has to offer. You can even enjoy the Nature Centre, the Wooden Boat Museum and enjoy late night entertainment at the local hangouts.

This is really an incredible opportunity to leave the hectic life behind, sit on the outside garden dock, sip cocktails and listen to the otters and sea lions play.

As far as accommodations go ... there is a queen bed in the main bedroom, a double up in the loft/bedroom as well as a pull out chair that makes into another single. There is also a double futon in the living room that pulls into a bed.

We have just recently renovated including all new paint in the living room and kitchen, bathroom and bedroom (which looks great if I say so myself!) and new carpet in the living room and loft. So everything looks fresh, bright, and clean!

Come give it a try ... you will want to come back again and again!

Interaction with Guests

I am available by text or phone any time. Please leave a message if I happen to miss your call. Usually I work a lot and am away most weekends and I like to give people their privacy ..but when I am around I'd love to meet up - just let me know!

The Neighbourhood

What a fabulous neighbourhood! There is so much life and attractions and generally a fabulous feeling that comes with a fabulous community of people. There is a lot to do right in the area from walking the beach to enjoying a beverage at the local watering hole. The best part is that the nights are so quiet you'd hardly know you are right in the heart of a small town.

Getting around

There is a bus that goes right into Duncan and the surrounding area that stops right outside the marina grocery store.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I run a non profit environmental organization and feel so fortunate to have the best job in the world! I am an avid kayaker and can certainly loan out my baby to those who want to give paddling a go around the bay. This is such a great lifestyle that I decided to share my home with those who have never been blessed to enjoy the float home life! It's a bit of a funky way to live (and the marine toilet can be a little challenging for city-folks - but luckily there is the option to use the marina washrooms right up the ramp) I hope you are intrigued enough to come and stay here - have all the fun of marina life with just a quick email. Hope to see you soon!

Why the Owner Chose Cowichan Bay:
Once you see it, you'll know why I fell in love! 3
