Property description

Welcome to Thalassa Point, an adult orientated two acre gated and fenced waterfront estate in the charming rural community of North Saanich, a suburb of Greater Victoria. Although the bustling Capital City is about 25 minutes away, and the quaint seaside town of 'Sidney By The Sea', the BC Ferries Terminal and the Victoria International Airport are all a short 10 minute drive, the ambience of Thalassa Point is one of peace and tranquility.

We are located on the north west corner of the Saanich Peninsula, adjacent to beautiful Deep Cove and considered the 'warm' side of the Peninsula. The property boasts 350 feet of low bank water frontage with south west to north east panoramic views and spectacular YEAR ROUND SUNSETS.

Thalassa Point is truly a 'special property', uniquely situated in one of the finest neighbourhoods on the Saanich Peninsula, boasting the best possible exposure in a very quiet and peaceful location,and with those endless sunsets.......please read some of our reviews to get a sense of this beautiful oasis. Further,we offer an extremely well furnished and equipped vacation home and we most certainly strive to provide an upscale experience to our guests....a definite step above what most other vacation rental properties offer!

Although there are two executive homes on the property, and the owners periodically occupy one of them, privacy is enjoyed by both. The recently renovated 3,000 square foot home offers amazing views from most rooms. There are 3 ensuite bedrooms, two with king size beds, and one with a queen size, plus an additional half bath. The master ensuite bathroom is a six piece, including a bidet, and shares the awesome views that most other rooms enjoy. All bedrooms are equipped with LCD TVs. Hardwood floors, granite counters, and CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONING for year round comfort are additional features of the home.

The property is heavily treed and the feeling one has is of living in a peaceful forest setting on the ocean's edge. Wildlife abounds as well as a myriad of marine life (including occasional sightings of Orcas...Killer Whales) and the adjacent waters are a favorite fishing ground for locals and tourists alike.

There are a wealth of activities in close proximity to Thalassa Point, including world famous 'The Butchart Gardens', a leisurely 20 minute journey down country roads. All this and much more are sure to make your stay at Thalassa Point a memorable one!

We ask that you please check our availability calendar and rental rates before contacting us and be aware of our policies regarding smoking and pets .... ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING in the home AND on the property (THALASSA POINT CATERS TO NON SMOKERS ONLY) and NO PETS in the home or on the property....with no exceptions. Please note that, due to the topography of Thalassa Point and the decor and layout of the residence, we are unable to rent to guests with children under the age of eighteen. Also please note that Thalassa Point might not be a suitable choice for elderly/infirm guests or individuals with mobility issues. Please refer to 'Suitability' below for more details on these restrictions.

A further note about suitability; Thalassa Point is a large property with beautiful gardens that the Owners painstakingly maintain. By late winter, as life is slowly returning to our gardens, a cleanup/pruning process begins that is somewhat labour intensive. Additionally, there are normally other tasks performed during this period.... soil amendment, plant replacement and relocation, etc. This is an approximately four to six week process, the Owners will be more visible onsite and noise can occasionally be a factor. We try very hard to maintain maximum privacy and also minimum noise when guests are on the Property, but this is not always possible. However we do extend our lower Winter rates until April 30th in an attempt to compensate for these increased activities.

Location

Car: Recommended

Fishing off our dock has been known to produce results ( only available for use from May 01 until October 31). Whale watching adventure tours are a very popular activity, departing from nearby Sidney. And with some luck, one can even watch the Killer Whales (Orcas) from the comfort of the home or patio.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I have spent most of my adult working life in West Vancouver (a suburb of Vancouver, BC's largest city) and enjoy the 'West Coast lifestyle' immensely. We have owned boats, large ones and small ones, for many years and have taken many cruises through the Gulf and San Juan Islands. This area represents some of the best pleasure boating on the Continent. It was because of these adventures that we found and fell in love with the Saanich Peninsula. Although we still keep a Townhome in West Vancouver, we find ourselves drawn more and more to our Island property.

Why the Owner Chose North Saanich, BC, Canada:
Although the Saanich Peninsula has many waterfront properties, not many have the unique ambience of Thalassa Point. The east side of the Peninsula is affected in the summertime by cooling winds that blow in from the open ocean through Juan de Fuca Strait and up Haro Strait...and of course there are no sunsets to enjoy. The north side tends to be dark. Thalassa Point enjoys summer warmth and plenty of light, and of course those amazing sunsets. All this and more attracted us to this unique location. However the property came with two homes and hence we now find ourselves in the unanticipated position of owning a vacation rental.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
What I think we both most enjoy about Thalassa Point is the feeling of serenity in this most beautiful place. The property is heavily treed with tall stately Firs and majestic Arbutus (Madronas or Madrones) and is narrow at the road and wide at the oceanfront (pie shaped). The home is accessed by a 300+ foot driveway and the feeling is that of being in the middle of the forest with awesome ocean and mountain views all around. The sounds and smells are only of the ocean and the forest. Although the neighbourhood is quite rural, most anything one would ever need can be found in the quaint village of 'Sidney by the Sea' some 10 minutes away. However, if one is in need of a big city 'fix', there is none more beautiful than Victoria with its charming English flavour...and it's an enjoyable 25 minutes or so away.
