Beachwood Cottage, Lovely Private Waterfront

About the property

Sleeps 3. 1 Bedroom. 1 Bathroom.

This lovely, quaint cottage, originally built in the 1920s is nestled on a secluded South sloping half acre of waterfront property, conveniently located just 15 kilometers from downtown Victoria. Whether you are sitting on the dock enjoying the sunrise, lounging in the cozy front living room watching the bird life, or relaxing in the adarondak chairs on the front lawn; every aspect of the cottage is close to nature and provides a unique opportunity to enjoy the very best of what the unspoiled beautiful West Coast of British Columbia has to offer. Watch a tremendous array of wildlife, including resident swans nesting on the lagoon shore, river otters eating their crab dinner on the dock, and even the occasional whale passing in the distance.

The peaceful and serene lagoon is a designated bird sanctuary which is host to a vast variety of bird species including eagles, blue herons, king fishers, with seasonal visits from osprey, bufflehead ducks and so many more.

Just a few steps down a treed lane you will find 6 km of walking beach with views of the city skyline framed by Mount Baker.

Beachwood cottage is fully furnished, impeccably clean, independent accommodation, with full kitchen and bathroom facilities. The 750 square foot cottage is the only dwelling on the property. It offers one bedroom with french doors opening to the private yard. A daybed located in the front room can sleep an extra guest, or is simply a lovely place for an afternoon nap.

Clean, comfortable, cozy, quiet.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment of our arrival we knew we had found a special place. From the quirky coziness of the cottage and the wonderful view to the cacophony of birdsong in the gardens. Jeannie has thought of everything in the cottage, everything we needed was there. We enjoyed a fire in the woodstove each night. Lighting was exactly where it was needed when reading. The beds.....oh so comfortable. There is plenty of extra bedding and also lots of towels. The washer and dryer came in handy after a very muddy walk in the woods. Walk the beach, very therapeutic. We loved our stay, can't wait to return.

Beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our Beachwood Cottage stay from the moment we arrived until we reluctantly departed. Jeannie made us feel very welcome & was very gracious to allow us some flexibility on our arrival & departure. Loved watching the birds, particularly our little quail friends, long walks, nice music selection, comfy bed all greatly appreciated! We'll be back if at all possible.

Beautiful, quaint and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for the two of us. Just outside of Victoria, so you could drive into the city, or elsewhere around the island and come back to this peaceful spot. Jeannie left crackers, cheese, grapes, , chocolate and fresh flowers. Everything we needed was there. The binoculars and the telescope were great to have, to see the ships out at sea. Loved every minute of it. You won't be disappointed if you book here for a week.

Cozy & Character

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect cabin for two. We loved the old feel character. This cabin has a wrap around view of the yard, the lagoon and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. There was a constant live view of bald eagles, blue herons, cranes, cormorants, california quails (if you sit quietly in your chair, they will sit with you in the morning!), rabbits and a large variety of ducks. We also saw many harbour seals in the Strait. The telescope was a great tool to view all of this up close.

So many views, so many places to sit inside and out to enjoy.

We loved the day bed, the heated bathroom floor, the very comfy bed, the telescope, the fireplace, firepit and how clean the whole cabin was. All the amenities necessary, were at hand.

We were also impressed with the constant calm and quiet surroundings.

This was everything we had hoped for. Very much recommended.

Merci for everything, Jeannie,

Beachwood Cottage Victoria

  • 4 of 5

Host Jeannie is a most gracious and helpful person. We did not meet personally, but she had the cottage set for a warm welcome. There was nice music playing, fruit, cheese and crackers and yummy chocolate bar awaiting us.

She also had 2 bouquets of fresh flowers from her many gardens, one in bathroom and one in kitchen. The cottage itself has everything one needs. It does need some repairs on the steps to the lagoon, but all in the house was in good working order. The kitchen is fully functional with many staple items provided. The bedroom is spacious with French doors leading out to the yard.

The neighborhood is very quiet sand there is many birds over the lagoon. We had frequent deer visits and even saw a search and rescue training over the water.

You will find the cottage cozy, quiet and surrounded by woods and water.

Great location to relax!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I totally enjoyed our stay at this quaint cottage! We did get to enjoy the visits with the wildlife in the area (swans, deer, otters, ducks, seals, birds). My husband's favorite spot for his morning coffee was on the dock and visiting with the swans, ducks and otters. We were able to enjoy the pears, apples and grapes that grow on the property (thanks Jeannie). We did enjoy the local Farmers Market at Metchosin on a Sunday. Enjoyed the vendors, food and music! Also enjoyed meals at My Chosen Café and My Chosen Pizza in Metchosin during our stay. Of course, we toured around in Victoria and Sidney. Lots of great eating places, walking trails, etc. to see. Thanks, Jeannie, for a wonderful place to stay and for the personal touches in the cottage. You are a fantastic hostess! I do recommend this accommodation, even though that may mean it may be booked up when we want it next!
