Wonderful Cowichan Valley Oceanfront Home Facing Salt Spring Island!

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

If you're looking for a relaxing family vacation in the beautiful Cowichan Valley, you've found the perfect home base! Our home is situated on a beautiful oceanfront acreage overlooking the Satellite Channel and the southern tip of Salt Spring Island. Take in the gorgeous cedar and pine trees, a growing vineyard, and 500 ft of oceanfront with direct access to the rugged beach. On a clear day, wake up and look across to majestic Mt Baker in the distance and enjoy the eagles soaring past.

On the main floor, our home features the living room, kitchen, two bedrooms and 2 baths. One of the bedrooms is a very large master bedroom featuring a king bed, en-suite bath and walk in closet. From the master you can walk right out to the deck to take in the gorgeous view or simply look out the bay window -- a perfect place to read a book. The 2nd bedroom has 2 XL twin beds with a large closet – the bathroom is right next door featuring a extra long jetted tub. The living room is very gracious and can accommodate several people - perfect for hanging out or watching the 42” LCD TV. The kitchen and dining area adjoin the living room so entertaining is a breeze. The kitchen also leads to the deck for easy access to the gas BBQ. For your convenience, there is also a new washer and dryer on the main floor adjacent to the bedrooms.

On the ground floor are the 3rd and 4th bedrooms. The larger one (similar to the master upstairs) features a queen bed and has beautiful views out of two separate windows. Should you require extra sleeping arrangements, this room could easily accommodate a cot or blow up mattress.

The 4th bedroom is the smallest and has twin bunk beds – a great solution for kids.

Enjoy all that the Cowichan Valley has to offer (wineries, golfing, biking, fishing, horseback riding) but come back to our private escape at the end of the day to unwind. We are 45 minutes by car from Victoria, 20 minutes by car to the Salt Spring Island ferry, and 50 minutes from Nanaimo.

FOODIE ALERT - In its July 2010 issue, the magazine "Travel and Leisure" wrote an article about the Cowichan Valley's culinary food scene. Most of the restaurants mentioned are 5-10 minutes away from our home. To find the article, do a search on "Cowichan Valley + Travel and Leisure"

About The Owner

We are wannabe West Coasters who live in Eastern Canada. With all our relatives out there, we wanted to have a place to call our own.

Why The Owner chose Cobble Hill

Our family purchased this property in 2004 when we were looking for a family getaway spot where our kids could make special memories. We're city folks and wanted a slower, quieter pace in a picturesque area. The Cowichan Valley gives us the best of both worlds -- we take advantage of all the recreation available (golf, kayaking, hiking, wine tours, etc) and all the peace as well.

What makes this house unique

We are in close proximity to: - several golf courses - Cowichan Valley wine tour - local, award-winning restaurants - fishing - Salt Spring Island (we are 20 minutes from the ferry that takes you to Salt Spring)

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We have a large family traveling from Ontario and BC. This house, and the amazing owners, was perfect for us. Lorna and Gibson (hosts) were gracious, and accommodating to our ever fluctuating numbers. Family came and stayed for dinners, easily sitting on deck, in kitchen, and on lawns.Sometimes up to 20 of us! My grandchildren (6mos -8 yrs) had a terrific time, both beaching and picking blackberries with Lorna! Rosie, the family dog adopted us and was wonderful with the kids, playing endless games of fetch! My mother who is has a little difficulty getting around had no problem with stairs or beach lane. The house is large and furnished comfortably, with a huge living room which could hold us all! The photos do not do this property is far more beautiful. The house was well stocked with everything the 10+ of us staying there needed. We had a perfect family vacation, and thank Lorna, Gibson, Venice and Murray for all they did to help us put this together! Would love to go back and stay anytime.. I would recommend this home for any vacationing family. Beach is sandy when tide is out, and the view is indescribable...

Thanks for sharing your piece of paradise

What’s better than 5 days away where you wake in the morning to the sounds, smell and vista of the Pacific ocean out of one window and a lush, green vineyard out another? How about a leisurely coffee on the deck and eventually a walk along the beach that ends at the Bistro at Cherry Point Winery? Accommodations were great for two couples or a family with kids with lots of room for more if needed. The setting is fantastic and the location incredibly central to Cowichan Bay village, Cowichan Lake and River, several interesting wineries, hiking, boating and golfing. The house was fully equipped and had everything we wanted including friendly and helpful neighbours. We left so many things un-done knowing that our plans are to go back again with our bikes and some extra time to just sit around and enjoy the milieu.

the photos don't do it justice!

Spectacular! From the pictures and the google maps I didn't think we would be as close to the water as we were. And the crickets! My sister-in-law loved the quiet roads for biking, by brother and she took the kids out on the paddle boards right in front of the house. Yard to play in, large living room for conversation, kitchen with all the amenities - including coffee grinder- beds comfortable, adequate supply of bedding and linens to accomodate the crew. It was so nice for the family to get to be in one location instead of strewn out between hotels. A perfect place. Highly recommend.

Amazing location!!

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed here twice for a total of about six weeks while house hunting in the area. Typical "BC" family home, nicely furnished, well equiped and discriptions accurate. Owners and "neighbours" exceptionally helpful and great hosts.... and now for the best bit... the views and location are just incredible. Uninterupted views look out toward Saltspring Island and the Saanich Pensula - just watch out for the family of Bald Headed eagles that live in the tree right by the house!
