About Brent Thorkelson

Both my wife and I are healthcare professionals in Alberta. When our son was just 6 we set out on an adventure to build our dream home in Millarville, near the Rocky Mountains. After 4 years of living in a 1975 mobile home we had completed (ourselves) a small timber frame house which is where we live today. My wife's passions include relaxing with gardening and pottery, while mine revolve more around the adrenaline side of linking motor sports with raising money for Kids Cancer Research through my 'Hands Together for a Cure' initiative.

With our hectic work schedules, our family of three enjoy the privacy and natural beauty of living in the country. It is really our Alberta Oasis.

Brent Thorkelson purchased this house in 2014

Why Brent Thorkelson chose Vancouver Island

For the past nine summers we have packed up our truck and camper to venture to the beauty of Vancouver Island. The Qualicum area is one of many places we have found in our travels that offer both relaxation and fun activities when you feel the need to be adventurous.

Ocean Oasis is the ideal blend of both. Situated in the quiet gated community of Qualicum Landing, Ocean Oasis offers up this and more in a modern well built cottage style house.

Perfect Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at this beautiful property with our 9 year old granddaughter. It was a perfect retreat and a great home base to explore the area. The house has everything you could possibly need and is beautifully decorated. It was a pleasure to sit around the fire table in the private backyard after a day of hiking and exploring the local gems. Our granddaughter loved being able to swim in the pool every day which is so close to the house. The beds were extremely comfortable and the peace and quiet of the area definitely contributed to great slumber. We loved how the bedrooms were divided so everyone had their private space and own bathroom. This area of the island is absolutely beautiful and was a great way to let the stress of our busy daily lives completely disappear. I highly recommend this oasis to anyone who wants to rejuvenate and enjoy time with loved ones.

Ocean Oasis was exactly what we needed! We sold our home and were waiting for possession of our new home. Brent and Lenora's home was welcoming, well appointed and extremely well equipped. Lovely linens and a drawer full of spices! We made great meals and entertained in this cozy house. Enjoyed some evenings around the fire pit! Golfed at Arrowsmith! Excellent restaurant, Micky J's, at the course. Deez was a very friendly place to drop by with delicious food and lovely patio. We also had overnight guests and there was plenty of space for all. Two hide-a-beds! And that is in addition to two bedrooms! It was immaculate. Really enjoyed the wonderful shower in MBR! Deer and many rabbits in the back garden. Beautiful trees and very tranquil! Thank you, Brent and Lenora. Hope that We get to meet you one day now that we live close by!

Just Okay...

  • 3 of 5

In the past year we have stayed in 3 different houses within this housing community and while this house was nice, it was by far our least favourite. As other reviewers have said, the owner (Brent) is great to deal with and the house is nicely furnished; however, the road behind it is loud, the outside space only has sun briefly, it is one of the furthest houses from the beach, and it is not as well-equipped as other homes around it. While the other houses we have stayed in had soap, conditioner, tea/coffee, water toys, outdoor games, etc., this home did not. It is also very small in comparison to others. It is really only suitable for 4 adults but offers a fair amount of privacy as the bedrooms are on different floors. If you are looking for a family vacation home, I would not recommend this but it is suitable for a couples weekend.

Owner's Response: Hello and thanks for your feedback. Both Lenora and I were surprised and saddened to read that you felt your stay was not as positive as our other families have found Ocean Oasis. Lenora and I have put great thought into providing the appropriate provisions for our guests. One of the key reasons for not including beach toys is concern over germs being spread between the children. You are correct that Ocean Oasis is the furthest from the beach being a 4-5 minute walk. We actually chose this location as the house is very private having neighbours only on one side. Thanks again Nicola for taking the time to write this review. Sincerely Brent and Lenora

Wonderful month

  • 5 of 5

Spent a month in this beautiful cottage! It was very cozy and it was a pleasure to spend time inside when we had so many rainy days. Very well stocked and clean. The owner was easy to talk to with a couple of T.V. problems and willing to assist us with anything. Would have no problem recommending this beautiful place . Hope to return at another time.

It was everything we wanted and needed. We came with friends and had the perfect get-away. It was a perfect place for 2 couples. Well stocked and very clean and modern. Loved it but our vacation was far to short. Could have easily stayed for a week.
