What makes this house unique

After buying this property 12 years ago we decided to demolish the old home and build our dream home. We knew it would be a long stressful undertaking, but were so in love with the area and the amazing property we felt we had no choice. We are both water babies who love the sun and realized waterfront properties with southern exposure on the east coast of the island are very rare.

We did vacation rentals in the old home and very much enjoyed all the wonderful people we met. They also enjoyed our property as well as the area, and returned year after year. Therefore we decided to build a fully self contained suite to accommodate all of our old guests, and hopefully meet many new ones. So, send us a message and come visit us in beautiful Nanoose. Take advantage now of pre landscaping rates. Landscaping should be completed mid August 2017

Stunning location and lovely accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late in the afternoon to be greeted by Randy and shown around the property. We were stunned at the view and within 5 minutes we had seen sea-lions, eagles and deer!

Randy and Cynthia were very welcoming hosts and the property was very well appointed and comfortable. We made good use of all the facilities and loved the quiet location. The local shops/restaurants and towns were only a short drive away and there are numerous little parks nearby that we could easily walk or drive to.

The setting is absolutely stunning and we never got tired of the view!

Would definitely recommend this as a very peaceful, relaxing place to stay.

Beautiful home but very loud and not private

  • 3 of 5

This house was beautiful, the view was fantastic, and everything was brand new. However, what the ad did not say was that you are in the basement of the owners home which was very shocking to find out. We were there a week (I would say that is pretty long) and we were not allowed to do laundry. It says in the ad that laundry is available for long term tenants I assumed that would be a week, (my fault should not assume) so we had to go to the laundromat.

The basement suite that you stay in is VERY noisy. We could hear the owners footsteps, TV, music, and conversations this was not ideal and usually kept my little guy up way past his bedtime. The owner also had a party on a Monday night with blaring music until 12 am keeping us all up (very uncomfortable situation).

The master suite was beautiful with french doors opening to the ocean, but..... one night my husband and I were enjoying the view from the comfort of the bed when someone from the upstairs came down and walked right past us, also very uncomfortable.

This place is not kid-friendly, there is no private beach, and you have to cliff jump if you want to swim in the ocean. Overall, we were uncomfortable and had enough of the noise that we left early.

Owner's Response: We were very surprised and disappointed to read this review. We work hard to create an atmosphere conducive to a relaxing and enjoyable vacation for our guests. As stated in our house rules, there is to be no excessive noise after 11pm and we respect that rule the same way that we expect our guests to respect it. It is clearly stated that there are no laundry facilities but in the past we have done our guests' laundry as a favour. At our beach you can walk directly into the ocean. There are NO cliffs. It drops off quickly hence our recommendation for capable swimmers only. Beachcomber Park is a 3-minute walk away which is more suitable for toddlers, as stated in our listing. We did in fact hear the crying of their toddler on a regular basis during the week, sometimes in the wee hours of the morning, but we chose not to say anything as we know that this age (toddlers) can be a challenging stage of parenting, being parents ourselves. We are in regular contact with our guests during their stay, giving them the opportunity to ask questions or make requests of us. Sadly, this couple chose not to share any of their concerns with us which would have given us the opportunity to resolve the issues for them.

Disappointed!!! And charged significantly higher than the posted rate.

  • 1 of 5

Our 7 day stay at Randy's was a disappointment to say the least.

Upon arrival on Saturday afternoon we noticed the landscape was dirt and gravel paths, which wasn't a big deal at first.

Later the same afternoon Randy advised he had real estate agent tours the following day between (Sunday) 3:00 and 5:00 pm and needed access to our suite.This was a surprise but we accommodated the request.

Everything went seriously wrong Monday morning. As we were enjoying our breakfast at 8:00 am, 4 landscape workers showed up on our patio smoking cigarettes. Then the noisy work began; cutting of rocks, moving the rocks in wheel barrows, top soil application and hammering. Our windows and patio doors had to remain closed all day to limit the dirt and dust.

We contacted Randy immediately to voice our disapproval and requested him to stop the work. Randy advised he's been waiting too long for this work to begin and could not accommodate our request. He advised the workers will be there all week from 8:00 to 5:00 pm!

We were never made aware of any work underway. He advised us it was on his site information - this was not seen by us when booking. When we asked Randy about the water toys, paddle boards and kayaks noted as amenities on his website, he said this was a mistake and would remove this from the site asap. To top it off the outdoor grill (BBQ) was very old and in disrepair so we couldn't use it.

To salvage our family's holiday we spent the entire days', morning to dusk way from Randy's construction site.

We took photos of the unfinished landscape, workers and unsafe concrete stairs without handrails. Wish we could share them on this site!

Owner's Response: We are very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at Rocky Beach. The first thing we want to address is overcharging. We have absolutely nothing to do with payment. VRBO handles all the money and charges your credit card exactly what the web site states. They also send you a detailed quote before you make payment. As far as landscaping goes, yes there was some work being done as stated in our profile. We have been at full occupancy since Feb 1st and all of our guests were aware of the ongoing work. On our profile it clearly states ..... "enjoy pre landscaping pricing. Landscaping should be complete mid August". Landscaping was completed on August 13th. It is absolutely gorgeous, and I am sure everyone will enjoy it for years to come. As far as kayaks are concerned .... we used to have kayaks available but due to liability issues we could not allow our guests to use any longer. We did make a mistake in not editing our profile to reflect the current status. We did offer to send the Skinner family on an organized kayak trip at our expense but they were not interested. Our guests total pleasure and enjoyment of their home away from home is very important to us. Up until now we have had nothing but totally satisfied guests, as our previous reviews reflect. We are so upset that the Skinner family was dissatisfied. As discussed on your departure, I am hoping we can do something for you in the future to make up for any misunderstandings.

My husband and two children stayed here in July 2017. Amazing location, beautiful suite, lovely hosts. We looked for sea critters at low tide, walked to a regional park 5 minutes away to play at the beach, and enjoyed some wine on the patio watching the sunset after the kids went to bed. Parksville was 20 minutes away, 1/2 hour drive to the ferry. The kids loved all of the wildlife we saw as well. We couldn't be more pleased with the experience.

The drive into the community builds your excitement, your anticipating something special. But when you pull into the property, you are truly blown away, It is an awesome location, the ocean is steps away and the sun is directly on you until it sets beautifully over your horizon. Randy's home is also quite spectacular, this is the picture from your deck, straight through your walk out french doors. The suite is a generous size, very nice living area with open kitchen, nice cabinets. A fantastic fireplace, and windows everywhere to enjoy the ocean view from every room and angle. Master bedroom was great with nice cheater door to bathroom, also had a walk out patio door with a fantastic view. Randy was very friendly and accommodating plus gave you your privacy. You can golf, hit the beach, check out wineries, world class spa's close by but you better spend some time chillin on your deck because the view is great. You will love it & we are going back, guaranteed. Thanks Randy

Wonderful oceanfront suite!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our long weekend stay at this beautiful oceanfront property. Accommodations were splotless and modern with all amenities that we needed for a comfortable stay. One evening, we sat and enjoyed watching the wildlife from the sun soaked patio, it was so relaxing, peaceful and quiet! Communications with the owner Randy were smooth and he greeted us and showed us around upon our arrival. We would highly recommend this place to our friends, and would definitely stay here again. Perfect for a quiet romantic stay!
