About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths
It’s impossible to run out of room—or inspiration—in this classic, Nantucket-style, four-bedroom, 4,000-square-foot seaside retreat, tucked away on a secluded beach near endless meandering trails, sharing epic views with eagles and seals.
Come see why executives and families feel an almost instantaneous sense of peace in this place. (And why you just might, too.)
Intimate enough for family—but not so intimate everyone can’t do their own thing. You can fall asleep on the deck, and let the sun into your soul. In the evenings, light up the fireplace, fit for marshmallows, lovers and marshmallow-lovers.
Spend an entire week kayaking, scuba diving, resting, reading, swimming, running and doing nothing at all. World-class bars and spas are nearby.
• Productivity. Spend some quality think-tank time by the ocean. Enjoy wireless internet access, a ready-for-business office with its own printer and a private entrance to the beach.
• Spaciousness. High ceilings; shabby-chic-meets-the-Hamptons interiors with cream-colored walls; wide-plank, white-oak-stained-dark flooring; exposed beams; marble countertops; travertine.
• Inspiration. A cedar deck that hugs the water as closely as a yacht’s prow.
• Delight. A chef’s kitchen featuring every appliance needed to create the perfect organic-gourmet meal; a nearby organic farm.
• Creativity. Bay windows; ocean views; enough space for up to eight artists and writers to lose themselves in their thoughts.
• Love. A fireplace fit for marshmallows, lovers, and marshmallow-lovers.
• Vitality. Gym; infrared sauna; yoga mats.
• Fun. Kayaks; some of the best scuba-diving in the world; a children’s playhouse; swing and slide set; and a particularly buoyant trampoline.

Year Purchased: 2002
About: I’m Marlies Venier. Event planner, experience artist, people-hugger. Oh, and former assistant casting director. Modeling was actually my first career, but it didn’t take long for me to find my loyalty to good food ran deeper. So, I worked my way up through the Vancouver movie industry, from talent agent to agency owner, where I found I had a knack for connecting people with just the thing they were looking for. There is nothing I love more than creating delightful, memorable experiences for others.
Why Nanoose Bay, BC, Canada:
After my husband, Todd, and I found and rebuilt this place, we spent seven years here, blissfully raising our three adventure-loving children, before moving to Canada’s wine country, Kelowna, British Columbia. This place was such a gift to us—one I am honored to now share with you. The family who lived on this property before mine spent fifty years here, raising their children and grandchildren, filling the walls with love, memories, resonance. Their children and their grandchildren experienced the same joy of freedom my children did. When we decided to develop this property, we wanted that sense of history to stay with the place. So, when the original home was rebuilt, a central pillar was left intact. Once the heart of their home, it has become the heart of ours. And now yours.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
My favorite time of year here is summer. We spend afternoons exploring the beach.. There’s almost always a breeze. It is colorful, green and warm It feels comfortable, happy. It’s almost magical. The kids play soccer in the grass. We might make our way into town to see the artists’ studios and to visit one of the many sandy beaches nearby. Other seasons feel happy here, too. Spring is cool, sunny, full of color, naturally. You’ll spot plenty of wildlife—eagles, whales, harbor seals, sea lions. You might even get caught in the rain. Fall is warm. Green and orange leaves everywhere, impossibly beautiful. Winter sometimes brings snow. The air is cool and damp. Beautiful ocean storms come and they will take your breath away.
