Property description

Situated in the heart of 'Wine Country' on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada our one bedroom custom built log cabin is nestled in the perfect place to kick back and relax after a day of exploring the Cowichan Valley. Guests will revel in the serene ambiance of the cabin done entirely in Douglas Fir and rustic red cedar. Situated on a hill surrounded by lush green forests, the cabin is only 5 minutes walk from the beach.

This 450 sq ft cabin features a separate bedroom that has a large king size bed that looks out through French glass doors into the forest. A gorgeous contemporary living room furnished with a large comfy couch, a wood burning stove and a small kitchenette to prepare meals should you wish to dine in. The bathroom is the showpiece of the cabin with slate tiles, a large clawfoot tub, rain shower and stunning aromatic cedar walls.

Cabin on Paradise is a destination in itself for those wishing to “get away from it all.” Relax by a roaring fire while sipping a glass of local wine. Sit on the deck and watch the bald eagles fly overhead. Go for a walk on the park trails that start from the cabin’s front door or read a book while you revel in the silence that envelopes you.
