Both communities offer shopping and dining just a 20 minute drive away. We are in the heart of the charming, friendly, farming community of Black Creek and a there is a local market, coffee shop, artisan gift shop and liquor store just a lovely 15 minute walk from the beach house.

                  If you want more than lounging on Saratoga Beach listening to the surf or reading on your private deck and watching the Bald Eagles you’ll be happy with the active lifestyle Vancouver Island offers. We invite you to enjoy beach combing, ocean kayaking, wind surfing, sailing, scuba diving, boating, salmon fishing, golfing and more.
