Property description

Our iconic 60's log Cabin has all the modern conveniences with a unique a country cabin feel on a .9 acre lot. Tide pools and rocky beach in front of the cabin. Swimming options in front or at near by pebble and sandy beaches.

Unwind on our large wrap-around sundeck complete with Webber BBQ, picnic bench, market umbrella and ample seating. Observe our resident feathered friends including bald eagles, herons, gulls, kingfishers, woodpeckers, chickadees and juncos.

A vista of majestic snow capped mountains, glittering sunlight and long magenta sunsets awaits you. Lapping waves, resident sea lions and wind soughing through fir, oak and arbutus trees provide you with nature’s lulling symphony.

A cozy haven to enjoy winter storms, the Cabin’s living area includes vaulted ceiling, glowing wood beams, flat screen HD T.V. and brick fireplace with thermostat controlled gas insert.

The cabin delivers an authentic ambiance along with all the modern conveniences including three bedrooms (queen, queen and bunk bed), one bathroom (tub/shower) and a large living-dining-kitchen area with spectacular views.

The kitchen is well stocked and we ask that our VBRO guests kindly replace items that they deplete during their stay.

Located at the end of a cul-de-sac the one acre lot is family-friendly with plenty of lawn for boccie, croquet, badminton, frisbee and more. The quite streets nearby are ideal for leisurely family walks to Beachcomber Park, Beachcomber Marina or around “The Point”.

If your preference is to view all that Northwest Bay has to offer from the water, information regarding local kayak rentals and guided tours is available.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1960

About the owner: We live in Victoria two hours from our vacation property. We opened the Cabin to paying guests in the Fall of 2013.

Why the Owner Chose Beachcomber (Nanaimo E, BC, Canada):
I was four years old when my parents purchased the land and I have enjoyed it ever since. My wife and I have vacationed here with family and friends for almost 30 years. We have maintained the Cabin's West Coast ambiance while installing all the comforts of home.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This is one of the few properties on the inland coast of Vancouver Island with a southwest sun catching exposure. The Cabin is surrounded by fir, oak and arbutus trees. Enjoy views of mountains and sunlight reflecting off the water until sunset or walk to Beachcomber Regional Park.
