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 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

Bliss

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful sugar shack. The beach just outside the patio door the sound of the waves at night and the returning gulls and geese in the morning. The view from the bed is beautiful and the creatures you meet in the cove are amazing from the bald eagle to the sea otters. The owners couldn’t be more helpful and friendly. We both loved it at the sugar shack and will hopefully return one day. Mick and Suz ( uk)

Seclusion on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this little getaway. The small house is very private and cozy and the bed was wonderful. The Beach House restaurant just down the road has excellent food and terrific service. The location is easy to get to but bring your own map if you come in on Black Ball ferry as the provided directions use a different port. I would highly recommend this rental.

Perfect little cabin

  • 5 of 5

Really couldn’t ask for a better cabin. Steps from the water, very clean and a super comfy bed. The gas fire pit was a nice touch for when it got cool on the porch at night. There’s a great restaurant a short walk down the beach if you don’t feel like going anywhere for dinner. Definitely going to stay here again.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

A tranquil, lovely place for my husband and myself during a very busy wedding weekend of 4 nights of events. We loved resting on the deck during the daytime! We hope to return some day just to relax! Thank you Michael and Marina!

Clean, private, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Came here with my husband and 11 month old for a weekend get away. Really loved it. We brought a playpen for our baby to sleep in and there was plenty of room and shade for us to put it our outdoor patio area. Right on the beach. Hearing the sounds of the waves was so peaceful and relaxing. Our son had a great time playing in sand for the first time. easy drive to downtown and to places like Butchart Gardens. Everyone managing this rental are amazingly friendly and helpful. All taking the time to introduce themselves if they saw us and make sure our stay was going smoothly. The steps from the road down to the rental were steep but not as difficult as I anticipated based on other reviews and was completely comfortable carrying my baby up and down them. Definitely recommend to others looking to relax and unwind a little.
