Property description

The modern Carriage House sleeps four comfortably. There is a queen Bed in the master and two singles in the second bedroom. A full stainless steal kitchen is ready for Gourmet meals with fresh BC fruit and vegetables bought from the farmers markets or sea food bought directly from the fisherman's boat. A wood burning stove in the living space is wonderful to cozy up to in the evenings and enjoy a glass of wine or a good book. A covered balcony over looking the beautiful property is the perfect place for your morning coffee and evening cocktail . Sitting on the deck down at the pond you may see an abundance of wildlife. Deer, fish, blue heron, bald headed eagles, mink, and numerous feather friends have been spotted many times. Certain times of the year the pond is nice to swimming in . If you are up for a challenging hike, the property backs onto a lush undisturbed forested area with a beautiful creek. You may be able to make the short hike up the stream to the small water fall, but you are going to get wet.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We relocated from Saskatchewan to the island just this past summer. We moved for our love of the great outdoors, oceans, forests, wildlife, and yes of course the mild winter climate, which was the last nudge that we needed. We purchased this property with the idea of sharing this beautiful Home and Island experience with others from all over the world. We sincerely hope that you love it as much as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are centrally located between Mill Bay and Shawnigan Lake only 3.1 km in either direction . If you look at the picture that was provided from the air you will notice the lush and pleantyiful forest all around us and the ocean on one side and the lake on the other all within 5 mins from the house.
