Property description

Oceanfront with private beach access on tranquil 5 acre setting. Open spaces, numerous flowers and shrubs. Creek with mature Douglas Fir and Cedars. Lots of wildlife and birds to be seen, such as deer, eagles, mink, otter, harbour seals, killer whales, quail, nocturnal beaver, blue heron, etc. Private beach accessible by private road makes for easier launching of kayaks, canoes and row boats, with area for storage near beach. Crab traps can be set in the bay.
Two comfortable queen beds. Great view from every room except bathroom.

A few comments from guests include.
- 'I can't remember when I slept in a more comfortable bed.'
- 'Why is it that in Alberta when the sun sets, it simply goes down but from your patio when the sun sets it lights up the western skies with the most brilliant colors imaginable?'
- 'Wow! This place is awesome! It's like magic!'
- 'It was a great escape for my family, we enjoyed the private setting and access to the beach where our girls could play while we got a chance to relax.'
