This comfortable cozy cottage highlights a 126-foot wide waterfront vacation property. Your beach is a mix of sand and stones reaching a broad expanse of sand below half tide.With a very gradual slope, the entire beach is very safe for children. Enjoy the panoramic view of Baynes Sound, southern tips of Denman Island and Hornby Island, and the manned lighthouse of Chrome Island opening onto the Strait of Georgia. Being just 25 feet from the seashore, you will watch eagles, herons and abundance of sea birds every day, seals, deer and even an occasional family of rabbits. From your seaside deck, revel at the alluring sunrise over distant Lasqueti Island. Every evening, you will enjoy the breathtaking progress of a golden sunset across Baynes Sound as the tide comes in, listening to allusive yawning of seals. Find the big dipper and watch for shooting stars. Sleep to the gentle lapping of ocean waves. At low tide, tease clams to squirt your companions, count the types of starfish, collect a few keepsake oyster shells and butter clams, swim where the sun has warmed the waters edge or build your best ever sand castle. Walk around Deep Bay spit and the Deep Bay sand bar. Stop for a seafood lunch at the marina, overlooking sheltered docks and boat-launching facilities. Over 80% of our cottage vacationers return for subsequent years, to recapture these treasured memories in Vancouver Island's 'Lighthouse Country'.

Wonderful little cottage on the beach
This charming cottage has everything you need to destress and relax. The beach at low tide is sandy and great to play in. My kids snorkeled and found some big crabs and starfish. Was topped off with my boyfriend proposing to me at the stairs to the beach. This place will always be special and we definitely will be back.
Serene & peaceful location!
Lovely, tidy little cottage in private end of the road location on one of the island's prettiest beaches. A view of Chrome Island is always great and the front deck is a great spot to relax and listen to the waves, read a book, or watch the ocean's wildlife!
7 minutes to Bowser grocery store and other amenities. A narrow, one-way road to the cottage allows minimal manouvering but once you're there, not much to leave home for. Cottage is fully equipped and the 3 kayaks are a wonderful addition as there's lots to see from the vantage point of the water! You are expected to do your own housekeeping for the next renter so something to consider if you prefer more pampering. Joyce, the hostess, is very helpful and readily available too!
