Property description

Experience the unforgettable charm of the Bayside Beach House, a unique 1,500 sq. ft. year-round waterfront vacation home in historic Union Bay on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

3 luxurious bedrooms (1 king and 2 queen), 2 full bathrooms (shower, and deep 6' soaker tub with hand shower), fully equipped kitchen, new appliances, butcher block with stools, large harvest table and chandelier, family room with wood burning fireplace, living room with 37" LCD TV, DVD and surround sound, sun room with wicker furniture and bistro dining, laundry room with front load HE washer and dryer.

You'll love your private cabana featuring a 6 person hot tub, outdoor shower, change room, and chandelier...very romantic!

Detached heated bunky (former potting shed) with fold down double bed, perfect for summertime sleeping. Walkie talkies to communicate with the main house.

Large brick patio with gas BBQ for outdoor dining, extensive seating, and dart board area. Lawn area with lounge seating and deck off family room with Adirondack lounge chairs, both overlooking your beach. Charcoal BBQ on the beach, driftwood seating, beach bonfire pits and so much more.

The perfect location for your winter getaway. Mount Washington Alpine Resort is just 1/2 hour away - after a day on the slopes, return to the Bayside Beach House to relax in your private hot tub and watch the sun set on the Coastal Mountains over Baynes Sound.

Other local attractions, include the renowned Kingfisher Spa just 5 minutes down the road, and the spectacular Crown Isle Golf Course, just 20 minutes away. Unique shops, restaurants, galleries and museums close by in Cumberland, Courtenay, and Comox.

The Bayside Beach House is also the perfect place to celebrate. With a large harvest table and a kitchen stocked with cooks in mind, preparing a gourmet feast for Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's Eve is a pleasure.

And we're just minutes from the Comox International Airport, and an hour from the Nanaimo ferry.

Once you've stayed at the Bayside Beach House, you'll want to book year after year.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We first fell in love with our beach house on Baynes Sound in 2006 and, over the course of two years, transformed it into the elegant oceanfront vacation home of our dreams. We met in Montreal in 2003. Robin was from West Vancouver, a marketing director for Clinique skin care and cosmetics with a background in art and interior design. She designed home interiors and two restaurants on the mainland. Pierre, originally trained as a professional carpenter, was a fixture in Montreal’s film industry for his expertise in special effects. We were married in Vancouver in 2004 and moved to Union Bay shortly after. Robin had travelled extensively during her 20 years with Clinique, and the time she spent staying in top hotels has informed her design expertise. Pierre’s skill and eye for detail was honed over many years of building things that needed to be just so. Together, we have a penchant for creating spaces that are both beautiful and functional. Most of the materials used in the beach house’s renovation were refurbished and reused, such as the gorgeous floor boards, salvaged from the walls of an old barn on the Island and refinished to a honeyed gleam by Pierre. Patio bricks are recycled from a house in Courtenay torn down by Habitat for Humanity. The result is not only environmentally conscious, but gives the beach house an elegant old world charm, while offering all the modern conveniences. We invite you to come and enjoy our beach house paradise. We know that you will love it as much as we - and all of our guests - do.

Why the Owner Chose Union Bay, BC, Canada:
We chose the charming hamlet of historic Union Bay for our Bayside Beach House because it is so convenient to urban amenities in nearby Courtenay/Comox, and we were drawn to the artisan community in the Comox Valley, which was designated one of seven Cultural Capitals of Canada in 2007.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We pride ourselves on having thought of everything a vacationer could possibly want, from the most comfortable linens, beds and couches, to a flat screen TV and full sound system, to a fully equipped kitchen and large harvest dining table. These are the things we enjoy when we stay at our property, just the two of us or with friends and family. We also love outdoor space you can use to the fullest no matter what the weather’s like, which is why we put in the expansive brick patio with its barbeque, built a cabana complete with hot tub, outdoor shower, and chandelier, and created two beach bonfire pits and put a brick barbeque down on the beach as well. There’s also a little herb garden for cooks to use. No wonder our guests find the Bayside Beach House as irresistible as we do.
