Excellent! Everything you could ask for

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property. Everything in the photograph is accurate. Amazing view from living room and deck. Quiet and generally private. The beach is perfect for swimming and there are plenty of crabs, clams and oysters to collect. We dined from our foraging every night. Wifi worked without a hitch.There was nothing to want and nothing to complain about (and I love to complain). We hope to stay again.

Great location and comfortable accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many VRBO rentals, and this was by far the nicest of all. While we were there to fish and visit the upper Island, the location on the beach of Qualicum Bay would be ideal for a summer visit. We enjoyed warm weather even in the last week of September. Other reviewers liked the nearby Sandbar restaurant, and it is just okay. However, it is really the only decent dining opportunity in the immediate area. There are more options in the town of Qualicum Beach, but it is a 12 mile ride south on a two lane road. If guests want to purchase groceries, the only place to do it is at the supermarket in QB which is on the main street of town. There is a liquor store in the village of

Bowser about 2 miles north on Highway 19A. The Provincial Park at Englishman River Falls is worth a visit to hike along the river, and we recommend a visit to Port Alberni which is a very pretty ride on Highway 4 from QB and does not take more than 45 minutes. Fly fishing for salmon from the beach in front of the cottage can be excellent if the fish are in.

The cottage is very modern ; clean and comfortable. Just found the door lock aliitle difficult to LOCK.

The view of the bay is really good. We found the central location handy to travel around the island.

Fabulous gem by the sea!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 3 glorious weeks at this spectacular place! This beach cabin far exceeded our expectations. It is very clean, beautifully appointed and offers views that are unsurpassed. You really are just steps from the beach while still offering seclusion. The location is convenient to Qualicum Beach for shopping, Saturday morning's farmer's market and numerous dining options. We also had the pleasure of meeting Jim, the property owner, who was very nice and went out of his way to be helpful when we needed it. We were sad to leave this special place, but hope to return soon.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved the time we spent here. As soon as we arrived we were in awe of the huge windows and spectacular ocean views. The home was very clean and welcoming. We had a chance to chat briefly with Jim and he was very friendly and accomodating. Not only is the house perfect, but the sandy beach it literally only steps away and nice long walks can ba taken in either direction. Location was great, nice and close to Qualicum Beach in case you need to pop into town for groceries. We went to the Saturday morning farmer's market in town and it was lovely. We were sad when our time at this property came to and end, but are already planning to come back next summer. I would highly recommend booking this property!

Dream Oceanfront Studio

My brother & family joined us on vacation this year so we utilized both the house & studio. Both were well appointed with amazing views, just steps from the beach & strategically located for all island activities

Some useful information for your visit to Qualicum Bay:

Lighthouse Country -

For events scheduled at the local Lighthouse Community Centre just a kilometer away,

For lovely hikes, Englishman River Falls - about 20 minutes drive from the house. The first site is the provincial park website giving the basic park information while the second is pictures of sites around the area, including the Falls.

http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explore/parkpgs/englishman_rv/

http://www.google.ca/search?q=englishman+river+falls&hl=en&newwindow=1&

Little Qualicum Falls - about 20 minutes from the house. First site is the provincial park website and the second is images from an individual.

Horne Lake Caves Provincial Park, 20 minute drive for hiking and caving. On the way enjoy warm, fresh water swimming and canoeing at Spider Lake, 10 minutes away,

Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park, 20 minutes, a magnificent sandy bay at low tide, www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explore/parkpgs/rathtrevor/

Cathedral Grove - old growth forest. The forest was nominated as one of the seven wonders of Canada. I have included that link last.

Elk Falls Provincial Park near Campbell River an hour from here is found at,

Salt water Salmon fly-fishing - from our beach from mid-July to late October. You should check on what lures the fish will take in this area and can be purchased locally.

Fresh water fishing, Horne Lake and Spider Lake, 20 and 10 minutes away.

Kayak and paddleboard rentals can be found in Qualicum Beach, 15 minutes drive at Outsider Adventures at ; Courtenay, 30 minutes north of here at Comox Valley Kayaks and Canoes ; or Tree Island Kayaking . The last two provide day trips to the magnificent Sandy Island Marine Provincial Park (also known as Tree Island)

which we highly recommend or launch the kayak at the beach at Qualicum Bay, a nice semi-rural community. Close to Island Scallops , Fanny Bay Oysters, excellent oysters and seafood there are a number of places where you can buy fresh fish.

There are excellent farmer's markets at Qualicum Beach, 15 minutes drive, ; in Errington, 20 minutes drive, ; and Comox Valley Farmers Market in Courtenay, 30 minutes drive,

All run on Saturday mornings, so if you want some fresh produce prior to checking in at 4 pm - these are great places to visit. There is a very excellent grocery store in Qualicum Beach (Quality Foods) and a good grocery store (Tomm's) at Bowser, 4 minutes north of the house. Bowser also has shops for liquor, gas, hardware, art, gifts, credit union, library and post office.

Getting here:

You will take BC Ferries from Horseshoe Bay to Nanaimo,

or from Tsawwassen to Duke Point, arriving fifteen minutes south of Nanaimo,

These are current schedules, but it's good to check as the schedule can change. We recommend that you make a reservation as in the summer the ferries can get booked which can mean waiting for the next ferry. Once in Nanaimo - you take Highway 19A . We recommend 19A as it is the older route that follows the coast, slower but more scenic and takes about one hour or more. Highway 19, the freeway, takes 45 minutes and you use the Horne Lake, Spider Lake exit and drop down to 19A, Island Highway West, and left (north-west) for aprox., three miles to Qualicum Bay.

We are located at Qualicum Bay ... on the ocean side. The best landmark is the Crown and Anchor Roadhouse Pub on the other side of the road about 200 meters from the house. The pub has good local music (bluegrass, country, acoustic etc) and the food is pretty decent. The Sandbar Café, 300 meters is a pleasant restaurant with live music jams several nights a week and Henry’s Kitchen a Chinese restaurant near by. A burger stand, taco stand and ice cream shop open for the summer in the same area.
