Property description

This guest house location is so convenient! It’s tucked in a quiet, family neighbourhood, within walking distance to everything in town. It’s only 4 blocks to the shops and restaurants, a few minutes to the beach, golf courses, easy access to Highways 19 and 19A, sightseeing and recreation areas. Qualicum Beach’s Central Island location allows for easy day trips to Victoria, Tofino, Nanaimo and Courtenay. It’s just a one hour drive to airports and BC Ferries. If preferred, there is a bus available to take you to nearby towns/cities.

This clean & comfortable home features 2 bedrooms & a family room, with 2 new queen bed sets & a new double pull-out couch. The master suite has a 3 piece ensuite and 4 pieces in the main bathroom. The kitchen is fully equipped for the cook in the family. This house will comfortably sleep 4 people. The dining room seats 6-8. The home is family-friendly with books, puzzles and Duplo available for little ones. We have a high chair available and could have other items if needed. We have HD TV, free wifi and a phone to use for local calls. We are pleased to feature photos of the West Coast by local photographer, Graeme Owsianski. (If you want to take a peek at his work, he can be found on Tumblr under the name benchandcompass.) Enjoy ocean views from the living, dining, kitchen and family rooms. The large deck looks down on a beautifully landscaped yard and across to the ocean. In addition to off street parking there is space for parking a RV.

Qualicum Beach is all about... well the beach! It's beautiful. Lots of sand for the kids to dig in and build castles, rocks to look under for crabs, warm water to play in, and lots of room to walk and explore.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We are happily married and have 2 daughters, 2 sons and 3 grandsons. We live in beautiful Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island and love it. We enjoy entertaining, cooking and trying new foods. Our hobbies include reading, tasting wine, listening to live music and puttering around the house and garden. Dini's careers have included teaching pre-school children, the food industry, art and business. Don's careers have included teaching, sales, marketing and business management.

Why the Owner Chose Qualicum Beach, BC, Canada:
The location of this home was the most important thing to us when choosing the property. We had a little work to do to get it ready - a new roof and other minor issues brought it up to our standards and ready to present as a guest house. We love the yard and large deck and especially the view of the ocean and coastal mountains.
