About the property

Cozy 3 person townhome just steps from the sandy beach

Located beside sandy Rathtrevor Beach, this cozy get-away is perfect for the couple or small family that enjoys a quiet green setting, with plenty of activities available from your door-step. Enjoy the warmest ocean water on Vancouver Island, or dip into the pool and hot-tub. A true oasis - you will have no trouble sleeping here, for you won't hear any trains, planes or automobiles.

Fully equipped home with dishwasher, gas fireplace, cable TV, DVD player, various games and books. Use of tennis court / pickle ball court, nearby mini-golf and restaurants, and a central Vancouver Island location gives you quick access to Long Beach on the west coast, Victoria to the south, or Mt Washington ski hill to the north. And at least six golf courses are nearby. We provide a complete Guest Info packet with maps and links to most of the nearby restaurants, services and activities.

About Michael @ No. 1 Beach Oasis

After living many years in a small ski town in the Canadian Rockies, I moved here after discovering a wealth of outdoor activities at my doorstep. The wide open spaces at low tide on Rathtrevor beach, mountain hikes thru coastal rain forest, and paddling on the ocean, lakes and rivers - a real paradise for nature lovers.

Michael @ No. 1 Beach Oasis purchased this townhome in 2013

What makes this townhome unique

This is truly a unique home - a quiet get-away where you might see deer stroll by, or hear birds instead of trains, planes and automobiles. Located on green treed grounds, a southern exposure ensures plenty of light - even in winter where the large sky-light keeps the main living area bright.

The warm ocean water is great for swimming or paddling on, and at low tide a paradise for building sand-castles, beach-combing for sand-dollars, or skim-boarding in the numerous shallow pools.

Next door is Rathtrevor Provincial Park, where you can stroll thru a large-treed coastal forest. Three restaurants are within easy walking distance.

Very comfortable and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here. Very comfortable living room and kitchen area and good value. Comfortable bed. Nice quiet location and setting amongst tall cedar trees, with tennis court, horseshoe pits and volleyball area available for use. Access to beach trails. Only real issue was the bodem (press) coffee maker, where we would have preferred a conventional automatic drip style. Would definitely use again if available.

Very clean and very quiet.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and very quiet. The unit has everything you will need for your stay. It's a one minute drive to Rathtrevor Beach, and just a few minutes drive to shopping and services. We did not use the pool or the hot tub as we preferred the beach. Convenient parking right outside the unit. The owner, Michael, was very easy to book with.

Clean, sunny and bright

  • 4 of 5

A great place to stay with all the comforts of home. Michael is a caring and responsible host. Plenty of great information provided as well as essentials like coffee, tea and cream and some spices, oils, condiments, etc. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils, etc. A bit of a hike to the beach, but well worth the walk. All in all a very pleasant stay.
