About the Property
3 large bedrooms --each with ocean views of our waterfront property and gardens
Art and Gardens:: ---Carolyn is a professional artist and you will enjoy her paintings in the studio loft and throughout the house. The gardens and grounds that surround the house will add to your outdoor pleasure and of course there is always the gentle lapping of waves on the beach.
We have several returning guests who enjoy 'Seagate' as their special vacation get-away and a great pleasure for us is making new friends through email and sometimes in person. Because of the care from past guests, we no longer ask for a damage deposit. We regard our guests as 'family'. The entire house and grounds are yours to enjoy in privacy.
The Ocean: --We are located on a bay that is protected by Saltspring Island. Often there are canoe and sailboat races in the bay and during the summer we keep our own sailboat in front of the the house. It is not unusual to see eagles, herons, and other birds. On several occasions, we have had orca whales in the bay and this spring, three humpback whales.
At night we often enjoy a glass of wine in the hot tub overlooking the ocean. We are in a very safe, private, quiet location with no through traffic and yet close to Victoria and local shops. At night you will most likely only hear the soft sound of waves or the call of a loon.
Vineyards: --We are located in the prime wine producing area of Vancouver Island with many vineyards just a short drive away and one of the best is just a lovely 15 minute walk from the house. If you enjoy wine, try a tasting tour of the wineries. Information will be in the house. The quaint fishing village of Cowichan Bay is only a 10 minute drive away with what our guests describe as some of the best bread and ice cream available-- and of course, seafood. Great to stroll on the docks to inspect the boats!

Why the Owner Chose Cowichan Bay, BC, Canada:
We saw this home style in Australia and brought the plans back to Canada and then were very fortunate to find a property that had everything we wanted: wonderful views, quiet, yet close to shops, great neighbours, and waterfront. Every day we feel fortunate to live here--and love to share the house when we are on our frequent travels.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We were able to add design details to the house like heated ceramic floors, sixty-five foot deck facing the ocean, granite countertops, and an artist's loft. If you like art, you will enjoy the many pieces throughout the house. We also have a good collection of books and music.
