Enjoy a quiet restful retreat on Cowichan Bay just steps from historic Cowichan Bay Village. Watch eagles, blue herons, kingfishers, sea birds, otters and seals from the comfort of your living room or the large deck and 40 foot dock. If you like to cook take advantage of the culinary delights of the Cowichan Valley with the well equipped semi stocked kitchen. In the evening, take in the entertainment at one of the six restaurants in the village, watch the sunset from your very own deck or relax and enjoy your favorite program on the 50" TV after the view fades. At day's end fall asleep in a comfortable foam top queen bed. This utterly charming fully furnished 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom ocean front cottage has everything you need.
Six restaurants are with a five minute walk, including fine and causal dining, pubs, great seafood, as well as a coffee shop, liquor store, cheese shop and bakery. Kayak rentals, whale watching, and boat tours are also available year round and it is an easy five minute drive to grocery stores and other amenities. A delightful 20 minute trip on the harbour ferry will take you to Genoa Bay for a change of scenery and more restaurants. Explore the Saturday farmers market in nearby Duncan or enjoy shopping in the historic town centre. Kayaking, hiking and cycling are within easy access for active visitors.
Cowichan Bay is ideally located less than an hour south of Nanaimo and less than an hour north of Victoria. Also accessible by float plane from the lower mainland to Maple Bay just 20 minutes away by car.
Seasonal pricing offers great value to the visitor who is looking for something a little different without sacrificing comfort and within an easy drive from Victoria or Nanaimo or float plane trip from the lower mainland.
