About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This brand new executive, two bedroom, two full bathroom vacation suite at Inn Of The Sea, feels like you are actually on a cruise ship, with a 270 degree view onto low bank, and open ocean. Upon arrival your senses are immediately enlivened with air that is fresh from the salty sea, and with wafts of wood smoke from warming fireplaces.

Designer furnished with granite countertops , wood cabinetry, skylights, top stainless steel appliances, amazing media centre, and heated floors, this penthouse offers you an upscale urban environment while enjoying the raw nature that surrounds you. From the moment you enter the suite you are stopped in your tracks with the stunning beauty seen out of each and every one of the giant picture windows. Each vista boasts of centuries old cedar and arbutus trees, expansive sky, and an emerald cove, and of course, the ocean. Watch the tide come and go, caressing the shore with pristine waters. It’s a snorkeler’s , hiker’s, kayaker’s and swimmer’s dream come true.

The majestic snow capped Vancouver Mountains are in the distance, and the ocean is on fire with each morning’s sunrise. This panoramic wonder is yours from the master bedroom, living room, kitchen and the private covered deck. It truly is a corner of heaven. Drift to deep sleep with the gentle lapping of ocean waves, and awake to glorious bird song. Let the soul quenching beauty of pure unadulterated nature blanket you in gratitude for being alive.

The Yellow Point area, with it’s banana belt weather, has long been acknowledged as a place of spiritual power. You will no doubt see why it has garnered such acclaim. If you are looking for the ultimate ocean side vacation, Paradise beckons...

Please note: If you are wanting to plan a family reunion, the owners of this penthouse beauty also own another property at Inn Of The Sea. It is ocean front and can sleep 6 people. Contact them for details on price and availability.

About Iris Quinn

My husband and I call this vacation home 'Paradise' because it truly is a masterpiece of natural beauty. We live and work in Vancouver, when we can't be in Paradise, we want to offer it those who appreciate spectacular ocean views and a quest for zen downtime. We welcome you, and we can promise that you will enjoy your stay immensely, and leave with reluctance. One sunrise and you're hooked!

Iris Quinn purchased this condo in 2010

Why Iris Quinn chose Vancouver Island

My husband spent many years of his childhood in Yellow Point. He would wander the beaches and hike the woods. I grew up by the ocean in Nova Scotia, so we are babies of the sea. Salt breezes and wood smoke feed our souls.

What makes this condo unique

I am a true foodie, so I have created a kitchen that any cook/chef would feel right at home in. The farmer's market, the fresh fish, the produce. What fun it is to plan a special meal, pour a glass of wine, and enjoy it overlooking the magnificent, ever changing, ocean. It just doesn't get any better then that.

Guestbook comments from the owner

At the risk of repeating what other have written in this guest book, wow pretty much sums it up. The view is incredible, and the accommodations are five star. We wish we could stay longer. We will most definitely be back.

Great Vancouver Island Oceanfront Views!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Jul 25, 2011

What an incredible adventure on Vancouver Island! This fantastic gem of a property is hidden away on the coast of Vancouver Island in the small town of Ladysmith, near Nanaimo. This is one of the most beautiful, peaceful and serene properties you will experience! Words and pictures can only begin to describe the view from this penthouse hideaway. You will find yourself surrounded by ocean views and immersed in lush, green forest. The sunrise over the water provides a view that you may never forget. It is obvious that the owners love their property and the location. Their passion for the surrounding beauty and the property itself are evident in many ways. The booking process was quick and easy. The owners supplied all the relevant info and gave great tips for things to do and how to get to the island. The property was well stocked with nearly all a traveler could want or need and is excellent condition! The chef’s kitchen is a phenomenal addition to this property and allows travelers to cook at home while enjoying the views. Even condiments were provided! The master bedroom is elegant and comfortable. Plus, the large windows open right to the waves crashing on the beach below! This is ocean front living at its finest! The Inn of the Sea resort offers a pristine swimming pool and hot tub right on the water, along with a BBQ grill and tennis court. The surrounding flowers and gardens add simple beauty to this already amazing location. The Inn of the Sea is the perfect choice for a romantic getaway or honeymoon adventure! Caution: You may not want to leave! The VRBO Bear

Every window has a view over the ocean- just STUNNING! 5*****

  • 5 of 5

Not only is the view absolutely breath-taking from every window, everything about Iris' property is incredible! Many times a day we said "the owner has thought of EVERYTHING". It is gorgeously appointed and does not disappoint! We found everything we needed right down to tinfoil, plastic wrap, soaps, shampoos, beach shoes, luxurious bathrobes, and everything a foodie/cook would want or need right in the cupboards(even her own cookbook:)! This place is a dream vrbo and felt like an oceanfront home away from home(which isn't oceanfront, haha!). Can't wait to return!

Wonderfully relaxing space for a vacation

  • 5 of 5

The view and the sound of the waves was a amazing. Beds were comfortable and the kitchen was set up well. It happened to rain everyday we were there, but we could still enjoy our time, reading books, watching a movie on apple TV and playing cards. Thanks so much for a great space to relax!

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented this delightful condo, and we enjoyed every minute of the week we spent there. The owner is very pleasant, the unit extremely well-equipped, and the views of the strait and the bay are nothing short of breathtaking. It didn't matter if the weather was sunny or not, for us it was a perfect spot to just kick-back and enjoy. Food for the soul? Absolutely!!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The views were outstanding! Loved going to sleep and waking up to the ocean. The condo was clean, modern and very well equipped with quality everything! Would love to come back in the summer when the weather cooperates a little more but, regardless of the rain, it was a relaxing few days. Thank you Iris!!

DOES PARADISE HAVE GOOD DAYS?

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Inn by the Sea, # 8, was delightful and very beautiful. The property and the Condo itself are places to enjoy over and over. We hated to leave there for side trips to Butchart Gardens in Victoria, the Pacific Rim Preserve or Stanley Park in Vancouver. We never turned on the big screen tv because the views out all the windows were too beautiful not to enjoy. The condo is furnished with care and met our every need. Staying there really made our trip to Vancouver Island and the surrounding communities a delight. I hope we can come back for another stay.

If this condo is booked, contact owner who has another gorgeous oceanfront condo at the same resort, Inn Of The Sea. It is top floor as well, beautifully furnished, and this condo accommodates kids. These units are mere steps away from the other. It is the perfect situation for family reunions or Gal/Pal get-aways!
