We are fortunate to have nice easy walking trails through the forest for walking /biking in our area, through pristine tall trees and native plants.

We are within an easy walk to the BIG QUALICUM RIVER, where you can fish seasonally and enjoy the many walk,bike trails. The beach is a 15 minute walk, to a quiet rugged beach with eagles and great views out to the islands.

A good swimming lake is at Spider Lake Provincial Park, 10 minute drive.

Our area is quiet yet offers lots of outdoor activities. We also have a campfire for use at night , sit outside and enjoy the stars and watch our lovely sunsets.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We have lived in the Qualicum Beach area for the past 21 yrs and raised our 5 children here. We really love the unspoilt natural beauty of the area. There is so many places to explore. Nature is at your doorstop. 10 minute walk to the ocean. 15 minute walk to the Big Qualicum River with numerous river walk channels. We love to travel in the winter months and often we stay at local accommodation for a month or more. We would like to share our lovely acreage with travelers to give them a taste of our island lifestyle and would enjoy sharing our property with others. Janet & Dennis

Why the Owner Chose Qualicum Beach:
We have no visible neighbors. Our street is a dead end street with large acerage farms, mainly sheep and horses. Behind us is 50 acres of Crown Land, and beside us is Annie Creek so we are quite private. You are within 10 minutes drive to most tourist attractions.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
New, modern vacation cottage with NO carpets, nice and bright with a patio for enjoying your barbeque and relaxing. nice and bright . Reasonably priced for a good holiday.
