Lake Cowichan is the second largest body of fresh water on Vancouver Island, BC at over 30 km in length. The lake is located 20 minutes (31 kilometers) west of Duncan along Highway 18. The pristine blue waters and sun drenched beaches of Cowichan Lake offer water skiing, wake boarding, tubing, swimming, wind surfing and canoeing.
Our Lake House is located just 1 km outside of Youbou and offers you incredible lakefront living in this 3500 sq/ft six bedroom walkout.
Cowichan (Quw'utsun') means 'land warmed by the sun'.
In the Cowichan Valley rolling mountains, undulating rivers and pristine lakes come together to form the backdrop of the Cowichan; a place of incredible beauty, timeless traditions and tidal rhythms. Nestled between the bustling cities of Victoria to the South and Nanaimo to the North, the Cowichan Valley offers a wide choice of things to see and do throughout the year, from exploring the wine country trails, to unforgettable fishing, kayaking, hiking and golfing adventures.
All of our beds have top quality plush mattresses to ensure a good nights sleep
Master bedroom has a king bed, walk in closet, iPod ready clock radio and master bathroom with double sinks. The master bedroom windows overlook the lake.
Three other bedrooms upstairs have queen beds and a shared full bathroom.
There are two bedrooms in the basement, one with a queen bed and a fabulous view of the lake and one with two double/single bunk beds.

About Tim Goshulak
My wife Brenda and I love being near water. We fell in love with this beautiful lake the first time we came here.
Tim Goshulak purchased this House in 2009
Why Tim Goshulak chose Youbou
After vacationing in the area we realized we had found a hidden gem. The water is so clean and clear and compared to most lakes in the summer there is lots of room for water sports. We have the feeling of being secluded but are only an hour from Victoria.
What makes this House unique
We love spending time on the dock and the beach while the kids play in the water.

Very nice place, everything you need, space, scenery and fish right off or the dock!
Caught fish off the dock, 2 nice decks, the upper deck is is awesome! The guys and I are looking to rent this place regularly! Next time we wil have to bring the wives! Very nice home! Lots of room in a gorgeous setting!!!
Beautiful well kept home with everything you will need for your stay. We usually stay in the fall, the colors are wonderful and there are many lovely spots outside to enjoy the spectacle along with the lake. This property is perfect for a large family gathering or the ladies away for the weekend. Tim is most accommodating and there is a property manager close by. A visit will leave you planning to return.
A great venue for a family reuinion
Our 9-member family has stayed in this property twice. It is beautiful, quiet and has everything a group could want to relax, cook and gather together. The owner (Tim) and property manager (Kim) are both a real pleasure to deal with. We hope to be back in this lovely setting again and can't recommend it highly enough. Definitely 5 stars.
Top notch rental exceeded expectation
Tim has made some incredible renovations to this rental that made our jaws drop upon entering- namely the gorgeous covered deck, sitting area, and built-in BBQ. The dock is well-maintained and in good shape and the place comes with a number of great little extras and our family came away with many good memories were made!
A slice of heaven on Vancouver Island
This property was very well maintained, very clean, had ample supply of ice, towels, dishes and cutlery. The kitchen had all small appliances you would need, even a roaster. It was perfectly safe for children and very manageable for seniors with limited mobility. Both the house and outdoors areas were large enough for people to enjoy conversation while others relaxed reading a book. The layout allowed both sun and shaded areas outdoors. It was wonderful having a nice quite beach and private wharf. The clean clear lake water was irresistible. Our family made some fun filled memories!
Thank you for your review. The group of ladies that clean our home really do a great job keeping it in great shape. Hope you can make it back some day.
Locale for high school friends to reunite
This beautifully appointed, spacious and fully equipped lakeside home was the perfect spot for a group of women (friends since school days) to get together as we have been doing annually for almost two decades. Throughout our three night stay, it seemed that everywhere we moved, whether inside or outside, there were comfortable places for us to be. Lots of beds and bedrooms meant minimal need for sharing, and with three bathrooms, wait times were insignificant! A couple of days into our stay, Tim called to see if all was going smoothly (which it was). Although the sun shone every day and the temperature shot up, it wasn't quite warm enough to get into the lake...perhaps we'll dip into that another time! Staying in this lovely home made for a stress free and truly fun gathering. Thank you!
