About the Property
2000 sq. ft oceanfront cottage. 2 bedroom, 2 bath
Other wildlife abounds as a result of the rural nature of the property - owls, hawks, ravens, bunnies, squirrels and the delightful quail are all frequent visitors.
The Oceanside deck provides plenty of room to relax. The property is south facing and so enjoys both sun and summer full moons.
Spend the day at the beach where summer water temperatures are warm enough to enjoy long and leisurely swims. Other water sports include kayaking or canoeing and on windy days kite boarders and wind surfers take to the water. The water is warm enough to enjoy night swims under the stars and experience the incredible bio-luminescence which will give your movements the magic of sparkling light.
The cottage has an old fashioned charm and all rooms have views of the ocean or the garden. The large master bedroom has a king size bed and windows on 3 sides to enjoy the views and fresh sea air. The second bedroom has 2 queen size beds and a view of the ocean and a bathroom is just outside the door.
The kitchen provides plenty of room for 2 or more cooks, and the open floor plan of the main living area with a large stone fireplace between them allows a warm energy to flow through and around the spaces.
North Saanich is 10 minutes from the town of Sidney and 20-30 minutes to Victoria, the capital of the province of B.C.
The Cleo beachfront is well suited to couples or couples with one or two children over 6 looking to enjoy a peaceful oceanfront vacation. Steep stairs to the beach require care in descending.
Also on the property is a small caretaker's cabin which is approximately 150 feet from the house on the driveway side to ensure the 2 acre property and summer flower gardens are maintained for your enjoyment. Your complete oceanside privacy is unaffected.

North Saanich is a rural community where life proceeds at a leisurly pace and wildlife abounds.
Year Purchased: 1991
About the owner: Raised in Vancouver and a Vancouver island resident for 25 years, I have owned the Cleo Beachfront for 23 years. The property, although originally built on in 1946 has had only 2 owners.
Why the Owner Chose North Saanich, BC, Canada:
Destiny. I knew I would buy this property when I was only halfway down the driveway the first time.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property puts the cycle of life squarely in front of you. You are very close to nature here. In the spring, the birds and the bees start their dance; the herring spawn; the birds fly by with sticks and grasses as they make their nests, the frogs sing and the eagles call. In the fall, the salmon rest before heading to spawning streams. This too brings in many eagles who you may see plummeting to the ocean to catch a fish before flying into one of the trees on the property to eat it. The Canada geese start to arrive in late July or August to rest before heading north to feed. I have had personal experiences with orphaned seagulls, a heron, a raven and crows all of whom I have fed until they were ready and able to rejoin their brethren. (and an interesting fact is that they do not 'always come back' - happily, they return to the real life). This property is very private, and is a haven away from city life. The darker skies of the rural community allow for excellent star gazing and the warm water temperatures allow for the most spectacular summer swimming - don't just dip - but get your exercise!
