Overview

About the property

A 250 SQ FT. Cottage right on a beautiful sandy beach sleeps 2

Welcome to Beach House Retreat. If you love the beach and ocean then this is the place for you.

Nestled under a big willow tree, this cozy cottage has a magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean and literally sits on a sandy beach with its own private deck and patio furniture.

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 your private sundeck overlooking the majestic San Juan Islands. Swim, suntan and walk the sandbars in the summer. Kitesurf and storm watch in the winter. If you are lucky, you will see one of the local sea otters pass by.

From inside, this charming cottage has the look and feel of a Mediterranean villa. Its tasteful floor plan includes a bar-style table and chairs, a loveseat, a super-comfortable, Queen-sized bed, a bathroom with shower, cable TV, mini-refrigerator, wineglass set, microwave and coffee maker. Outside you’ll find an ocean-side sundeck and plenty of beach furniture to help maximize your outdoor comfort. WiFi is everywhere, so you can stream your favorite music on the beach or inside.

This private seaside getaway is ideal for anyone needing a good dose of nature and tranquility. The spot is also great for honeymooners, beach hikers, kayakers, paddle boarders and Hobie Cat lovers – there is a place to launch many water 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: Two days

About Michael Stein

We are a happily married couple, retired and enjoying our beautiful home on the beach in Cordova Bay.

Why Michael Stein chose Saanich East

We fell in love with Cordova Bay and all that it had to offer. The property had a small house on it when we bought it and 3 years ago we built our dream home here.

What makes this cottage unique

The Beach House Retreat sits on the beach is a free standing private cottage not connected to the house. Once you step off of your deck you will be standing on the beautiful sandy beach.

Gorgeous, peaceful slice of beachie BC!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have picked a better place to stay! We could hear the surf (but not the traffic!), loved being able to take our kayaks out right there, and the hosts couldn't have been sweeter. We will happily return!

Beautiful, Peaceful and Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

I had a fantastic time! I went there with the mindset to relax, enjoy the surrounding areas and play some golf! The hosts on site were very pleasant and helpful. All the amenities I required were within an easy 5 minute drive. Friends in Edmonton were envious of all the amazing pictures I kept sending them! lol

I have stayed in other VRBO properties across Canada and all have been great but this was a special time and place that I would strongly recommend to anyone reading this to consider!

Thanks again I would love to come back next year!

Fabulous View

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our month-long stay at this cozy, well-decorated cottage, despite the worst winter weather in many years. Our hosts were friendly and accommodating. The property description on the listing met our expectations. Walking on the beach was invigorating. We took many, many pictures from our deck. The view seems to be ever-changing. One must be prepared for the many stairs to access from the road. Once at cottage, you are right on the beach. We recommend this property.

Beach Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Great location if you like the beach. It was so beautiful looking out at the water from the deck. We had everything that we needed. You must be able to manage steps as from the street there are many, many stairs down to the cottage. Stairs were well lit. Bathroom has no door but a curtain. It would be good for 1 person stay however 2 could manage the coziness. The owner was very helpful and the property was very clean. We have recommended the property to a couple of people and in fact there is someone in Langley who will be renting the cottage after speaking so highly of it. The location is on a very busy street however when you go down to the cottage you hear no traffic noise , only the soothing and calming lapping of the waves.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location.... Just steps to the beach house restaurant where we were attending a wedding! Had some awesome beach walks where we saw herons and what (I think) was a sea otter! The place is small but was perfect for a couple. Enjoyed our time on the deck with the fireplace too ... Amazing !!!
