Property description

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

Why Cordova Bay (Cordova Bay, Saanich, BC, Canada):
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
