About Joan Miller

Our lives away from the Beach house are very active. As Realtors we feel that this property is one of the best ocean front properties on Vancouver Island and spend as much time there as possible. The house is shared and enjoyed by family, extended family and friends and many memories have been made in this home away from home.

Joan Miller purchased this house in 1992

Why Joan Miller chose Bowser

We wanted a place for our children to spend quality time with their grandparents and cousins and enjoy the magical and mystical Deep Bay Spit. Wildlife and ocean life come alive and many hours are spent boating, beachcombing and swimming.

What makes this house unique

The house has been completely renovated with a new kitchen, bathroom, appliances, & furniture package.

Wonderful ocean property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely beach house for a week and absolutely loved it! The property was exactly as advertised and there were no unpleasant surprises. Joan was wonderful, easy to communicate with, and very responsive from the first inquiry through our stay. We couldn't get enough of the panoramic ocean view and abundance of wildlife right outside our windows. It was also in a great location to be home base while we explored the island. We would not hesitate to stay here again!

Owner's Response: So glad to hear that our property is exactly as advertised and that you had a lovely stay. I can't get enough of that view either. Between, the boat traffic, the seals, eagles and herons, it is hard to know what to watch! The location is very central on the Island and easy to get to all sorts of spots from Deep Bay. Looking forward to seeing you again. Joan

Bigger than the pictures, beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

Could have easily fit 6 or 7. Our family of 5 loved it! The room with two beds could have fit 2 kids per bed in a pinch. I think their pics make things look narrow. Used the BBQ easily. Price was more reasonable than some of the similar properties. We saw a few bald eagles, seals poking their heads up out of the water, bunnies and deer. It was also nice to just walk on the nearby pier looking at the boats. Everything was clean, pretty, and practical.

Owner's Response: Hi Charles, So happy to hear that your family enjoyed your stay at our Deep Bay Beach House. We love it too! All of the children in our family have grown up there in the summer. There is always something to see and do at the beach. Watching all the boat traffic is one of my favourite things to do.

Fantastic get away location

  • 5 of 5

This house is very clean, spacious and well equipped. The kitchen had everything you could ever need, including a coffee grinder, champagne flutes and electric mixers! The beds were comfy and the living room is set up for a great group hang out. Best of all, the views are fantastic. We'd definitely come back.
