Tranquility, nature and luxury is what you will enjoy at our custom designed and built modern home. Nestled next to departure bay creek the home is surrounded by a forest of trees, bird song, deer and at times even a hooting owl can be heard. Walk out the door and you can be at the beach in three minutes. Departure bay beach has been voted the #1 most romatic place to park and #3 best place to kayak in nanaimo! It is also great for families with roped off swimming area, log partitions on the beach, park and picnic tables. We have three private decks to enjoy. The roof top deck has a Jacuzzi hot tub with super strong jets to massage tired muscles after a day of exploring and play. Every comfort has been thought of inside.

About the owner: Duncan is a journeyman carpenter who designed and built this home. Cherie enjoys the interior design aspect of home building and together they have built and designed homes for many clients. Both have grown up on vancouver island and have lived in victoria, parksville, qualicum beach and nanaimo. We enjoy an active lifestyle and love to travel.
Why the Owner Chose Nanaimo: We chose this property because of the location. To be able to walk to the beach every day and be surrounded by so much nature and yet still be right in the city is what drew us here.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our roof top deck is a special feature that we particularly enjoy. It's wonderful to sit in the sun during the day and enjoy a star lite hot tub in the evening.
