About the property

2 Bedroom ocean-front suite with private patio, sandy beach and stunning views

Come and relax in this spacious, ultra-comfortable waterfront suite which has magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean and the nearby San Juan Islands from every window.

Put your feet up, take in the fresh salt air, enjoy a glass of wine and listen to the ebb and flow of the waves from the lounge chairs on your private seaside patio. The ocean and the prestigious Cordova Bay beach are just 50 feet away. Swim, suntan and walk the sandbars in the summer. Kite surf and storm watch in the winter. If you are lucky, you will see one of the local sea otters pass by.

The spacious 1,250 square foot suite features 2 bedrooms (with a King and Queen-sized bed), a kitchenette, a dining area for six, a big-screen TV, a fireplace, washer/dryer, Wi-Fi as well as a covered balcony. There is also a barbeque and plenty of patio/beach furniture to help maximize your outdoor comfort in this ocean-side paradise.

The Suite is ideal for two couples or a family (children must be at least 10 years of age). It is also great for beachwalkers, kayakers, paddle boarders and Hobie Cat lovers – there is a place to launch these toys right next door.

Nearby services include four restaurants, a grocery store, a farmers market, the Cordova Bay Golf Course and the Trans-Canada bicycle trail.

We are conveniently located within 20 minutes of downtown Victoria, Victoria International Airport, and Sidney by the Sea. The Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal (which provides transit to Vancouver and the Gulf Islands) is just 25 minutes away.

Minimum stay: 3 nights

Amazing & Stylish Beach Side Home

  • 4 of 5

This is a beauty of a spot if you want to relax in style and enjoy amazing views and sounds of the ocean.

Beautifully decorated inside, large entertainment room with great windows to see the beach from inside.

Was especially nice to have a 2nd dining table outside to enjoy breakfasts in the warm sun and trust me, the patio gets a lot of it. We went in the middle of September and even with temperatures in the low teens, we were still treated to the heat of the sun that beats down on the private deck. The portable fire pit was a nice touch to sit around at night.

The 2 bedrooms were stunning and the beds were very comfortable.

We felt very VIP being able to use a remote for the blinds.

We wanted to spend us much time on the property to make it worth our while and because it was so beautiful so we prepared a lot of meals during our stay. The kitchen is very small which is to be expected for a basement suite but it did make things a bit difficult as there is limited counter space. Small fridge and dishwasher so that limited the amount of items we could place in both but we managed just fine. Just an fyi for guests that plan on doing a big shop before arriving or have lots of "beverages", I'd suggest you bring an extra cooler.

The other downside is the BBQ. It is a good quality but inadequate for bigger items like a prime rib roast etc. Was fine for some steaks and burgers but is quite small. There was also no way for us to light it as the bbq lighter was out of fluid and the BBq's ignitor didn't work.

Some advice would just be prepared for little things like this. Also, have a walk around the home and see what is provided, some kitchen items are not all in the kitchen.

For the most part everything you need is there for you.

The only way to the unit is down the stairs on the side of the house so this is not ideal for anyone with mobility issues. It is very well lit in the evening which is nice.

All that being said we absolutely LOVED this property and we would definitely stay here again. Being right on the beach was a highlight and the sounds of the waves coming in while you drifted off to sleep was heavenly. Being able to walk the beach with the sunrise and watch sea birds and dogs playing was very entertaining. We even saw sea otters, fish jumping, bird fishing and sea lions right from our deck. It is a magical little spot the hosts were amazing to deal with.

Beautiful home! Stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay at this property. If possible, it is even more beautiful than the photos. It's truly executive class and very comfortable. The terrace has a full-size dining table and chairs as well as lounge furniture, in addition to the inside dining room and living room. It's like having two extra rooms. We ate most of our meals out there. The beds and pillows are super comfortable. The bathroom is well appointed and the tub is great! My only quibble is with the kitchen. While it is well-equipped, it is a challenge to cook in if your meal is remotely involved as there is minimal counter space. But that is merely a challenge to overcome. I would also have liked to have been able to bring my small, non-shedding, hypo-allergenic, quiet 10 lb dog, but was told there was zero tolerance for dogs. Hopefully, there might be room for discussion on this point in the future. I would stay there again and recommend it without reservation.

Let's Go Again!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the most relaxing vacations. The sound of the bay lulling me to sleep was fabulous. Micheal quickly replied if I had any questions and Donna was helpful as well. The accommodations had every thing we needed. There was nothing a miss with this home. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your home.
