Space 1,400 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

Full House, 3 Bdrms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7) within Qualicum Beach (proper)

Welcome to our beach house, situated in beautiful Qualicum Beach, British Columbia. With our renovations completed in 2007 this has made our island home getaway a dream come true - see for yourself.

The house was built in the 1940's. It was just a small cottage with two others beside it. After many years of tenants, and with renovations now complete, we added a full second storey and brought it back to its former glory.

This classic spacious private home is now available for short and long-term rentals. It sleeps six, plus one on a pull-out sofa bed in the den. We recommend a maximum of 5 adults.

Do you love the beach or would you prefer a round of golf? How about sampling great food after a day browsing the local shops? Whether you're a surfer or a skier, or you simply want a well-deserved getaway, Qualicum Beach has it all.

About Stefano and Lisa

We are a young and active family that fell in love with Qualicum Beach. We love getting away and spending time there whenever it isn't booked.

Stefano and Lisa purchased this house in 2005

Why Stefano and Lisa chose Qualicum Beach

It is located within the town of Qualicum Beach proper (unlike many other cottages listed which are actually outside the town itself). When you rent our home, you get the whole home as there are no other rental units. Our beach home is steps to the beach, restaurants/bars, convenience store, and great walking trails.

What makes this house unique

Private home offers a lovely landscaped yard and ample parking sufficient to hold up to 3 cars or a truck and trailer, even an RV. Enjoy wide open views of the water from most of the windows.

Beach House on Qualicum Beach - 40 Steps to the Sandy Beach!
average rating of 4.428571 based on 14 reviews

great property, right across the street from the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the beach house in July and had a great time! The house decor was tasteful and suiting. Had everything you needed, BBQ, board games, videos, yard space with patio furniture. Only thing I would say some people might miss was no cable TV but you have the ocean 40 steps away!!! - we found starfish within 10 minutes of being there!

The owners provided us with a great information of the area before we even arrived that included everything from local hotspots. restaurants, areas of interest, hospital, realtor.

The only thing not making this 7 out of 5 star rating was there was some road noise and the fact we had to leave! Also note the house was able to accommodate 5 of us, 4 adults (parents,grand parents) and 1 child comfortably. With 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and separate sitting room everyone had enough space when we weren't out at the beach or seeing the local sites.

Hopefully we can come again soon.

Beautiful beach house.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely property, nicely renovated and beautifully decorated. Had a great stay, no problems. The only down side is how busy the road is out front, luckily our children are older so it wasn't a problem. Very handy to the beach across the street and close to many other attractions and amenities.

Very cute cottage and a nice kitchen. Quite convinet location near the beach.

  • 4 of 5

Was very good, the place is great, we had a great time. So close to the ocean. Bathrooms are wonderful, as is the backyard. Only issue was the state of some of the kitchen utensils and pans for cooking. Great place to stay in qualicum beach. Great for 4 adults though the 5th was a bit cramped in the bunk bed room def made for kids.

Unique rental

  • 4 of 5

A very comfortable stay for three plus weeks. We took our Apple TV receiver and hooked it up for lots of Netflix etc. A good thing we did because it rained every day but one. We still did several good hikes.

The house has lots of large windows and is very bright. My only problem was that there was not one empty cupboard for our groceries in the kitchen.
