Dreaming of an oceanfront vacation?
Fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing and sea birds calling. Stroll the beach looking for shells and sea treasures. Watch our resident otters play at water's edge. Spend endless hours watching eagles soar, seals fishing, the ferries coming and going, sea planes overhead and myriad shorebirds looking for dinner. Wander, read, stroll, storm watch, sleep in a deck chair, relax over dinner, BBQ a fresh salmon; this is British Columbia oceanfront at its best!
This modern well-equipped home has everything you will need for a relaxing, memorable vacation.

A Stunning Custom Built Beachfront Vacation Rental
Looking for a luxury oceanfront vacation rental home? Departure Bay Beach House, located on famous Departure Bay, is an elegant custom built 'walk-on' beachfront home, located in Nanaimo, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Custom built in 2012 by one of Nanaimo's premiere builders, our modern, stylish two-storey private residence, can be your vacation rental dream come true.
An Ideal Waterfront Location
Departure Bay is short distance from shopping and dining with a number of restaurants within walking distance of the house. Nanaimo is a thriving community of parks, beaches, charming eclectic shops, waterfront walks, marinas and myriad dining choices from fine to casual, plus all the modern convenience needed for an enjoyable stay. These include grocery stores, gas stations, libraries, theatres, restaurants and delis, specialty food shops, spas, doctors and dentists, massage therapists and beauty salons.
The city of Nanaimo sits mid-Island and is a central arrival and departure point for BC Ferries to the BC Mainland. There is also an airport, or you can come and go via seaplane (Harbour Air, Seair Seaplanes or Westcoast Air) into Nanaimo Harbour from downtown Vancouver or Vancouver International Airport. The seaplane trip is only 20 minutes!
The TransCanada Highway (Hwy #1) runs directly through the heart of Nanaimo. From here you can venture north to Mount Washington, Courtenay and Comox, west to Tofino or south to the Cowichan Valley and Victoria.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: This custom built home is owned by our family. It was custom designed and built by one of Nanaimo's most well-respected builders. It sits on the site of one of the original Departure Bay summer cottages built circa 1900. The original wood-frame summer cottage was not salvageable, and so, in 2012, a custom designed house was built on the site. Lots of history. Brand new luxury home.
Why the Owner Chose Departure Bay (Nanaimo C, BC, Canada):
The house site and the whole of the Departure Bay Beach area is one of the most historic in the region. Walk on waterfront is hard to find anywhere in the world, and Departure Bay Beach House is just that...the beach, and the ocean, just outside the ocean side doors of the house.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Waterfront. Oceanfront. Mountain views. Custom build. Modern fully equipped home. Lots of space for family, friends and entertaining. Listen to the crash of waves, stroll the beach, breathe the clean ocean air, de-stress, relax, rejuvenate, re-connect. That's what our family does. For us it is all about big family dinners, good fresh food, lots of laughter, idle hours of reading, listening, talking or just kicking back, sipping a cool drink, taking it all in. Hours slip by and time seems to stand still. Sleep well. Swim. Meditate. Connect. We always leave too soon. We think you will feel the same way.
