About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)


Our 'Beautiful Waterfront Getaway' as we like to call it, is our own home away from home. We expect our guests to care for it as if it were their own. It can be viewed in detail from our own web site which is available on request.

We are a ground floor unit in Inn of the Sea a townhouse complex with one building right on the water and two buildings behind. Half of the units are ground floor and the other half on the third floor. All units have their second bedrooms on the second floor. There is a lodge with private accommodation by the pool.

It is important to be in the waterfront building if you want beautiful unobstructed views of the Ocean and all that goes on there such as birds, otters, seals occasional Killer Whales, etc.

In the summer, you will enjoy the beautiful heated outdoor pool and hot tub. The beach is great for exploring all year round.

There are a variety of nature parks in the area which provide for all levels of hiking.

We rent by the week only in the summer months of July and August, Saturday to Saturday and rent a minimum of 2 nights at other times through out the year. Our rates vary by the season.

Peaceful, beautiful townhome with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

This spacious and bright yellowpoint gem is not to be missed! Located directly on the waterfront with a spectacular ocean views, the townhome is perfectly suited for a special weekend or weeklong getaway with friends and family.

The fully stocked kitchen has everything one might need to host the perfect vacation meals and there is lots of room for those who seek a quiet nook for reading, a lively board game together, a chance to catch up on some movies or a cozy chat by the fireplace. The yellowpoint community has so much to offer, too! There are many local artisans in the area that are worth checking out! We made dinner reservations and ate at the nearby Mahle House for an upscale but unpretentious meal. The food was superb and worth looking into!

The pool and hot tub area is luxurious, boasting stunning views of the ocean and front row seats to observe wildlife.

I am so glad to have come and will certainly come back again!

A wonderful and relaxing getaway. Everything we could have possibly needed was provided in the townhouse. It is clean, comfortable and the view is amazing. Perfect for a weekend away with dear friends.

Our Beautiful Waterfront Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 7 days for R & R and that we did! The weather was not as sunny as we would have liked but it did not deter us from exploring on day trips, enjoying great food, visiting with lovely people and being "thankful" for the beauty of Vancouver Island, Canada. The accommodations were great with the pool and hot tub just a short walk from the condo. We so enjoyed exploring the rock formation on the beach! We caught crab from the dock and watched the otters showing off! The major comment that I can make is the wonderful communication from Dennis! He called upon our arrival making sure that our needs were met. The conveniences -- computer, WI-FI, music, cable TV, and phone added to our wonderful stay. Thanks, Dennis, for sharing your town-home.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location; short drive to Victoria, Nanaimo, ferries and Butchart Gardens. Great views from the townhouse. Only had 3 days to spend on the Island. Next time would want to see more of the area around the townhouse, and spend more time on the decks. The townhouse had everything we could have wanted for use.

Great Stay at Inn of the Sea

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Dennis' townhome. The furnishings were sufficient and comfortable. The property was clean and cookware/supplies available. We enjoyed the outdoor pool/hot tub and exploring the shoreline during low tide with our young child. Thanks again for the hospitality!
