About the property

You will find The Eagle's Nest in Bowser, B.C. nestled among majestic fir and cedar trees.  This fully equipped, two bedroom cottage offers a peaceful retreat from city life.  The  vaulted  ceilings, hardwood flooring and wood stove provide comfort and reflect the natural surroundings of the area.  The basement of the cottage allows you to conveniently store your supplies indoors and also serves as a play area for children on rainy days.

Enjoy a panoramic ocean view of Denman, Hornby and Chrome Islands from the deck or bring your beach shoes and spend your days strolling and exploring the natural rocky beach.  There is a large sandy play area for the children and evening fires can be enjoyed in the two fire pits. Wildlife abounds here, so visits from deer and sightings of eagles are to be anticipated.

Eagle's Nest is the perfect place to use as a home base to explore this section of Vancouver Island.  A half hour drive will take you to Parksville, Qualicum Beach, Coombs, Horne Lake Caves, Courtenay and other attractions.  Numerous walking trails are found everywhere.  Golfers can enjoy the many first class golf courses in the area and Mt. Washington, which is an hour away, offers skiing, snowshoeing, mountain biking and hiking trails.  For an all day outing, Long Beach is an amazing destination.  If boating is your passion, there is easy access to a boat launch in Deep Bay.  

Within walking distance of the cottage, you can find a variety of shops (grocery, liquor, coffee shop, hardware etc.) to replenish your supplies. Many Artisans live in the area, providing visitors with unique shopping opportunities.  Also, the world renowned spas at the Kingfisher Inn and Tigh Na Mara are short drives away and definitely worth visiting.  

Eagle's Nest is an easy and worthwhile destination.  Whether it's R&R you're looking for or a more active holiday, the privacy and peacefulness provided by this cottage will restore you.

Beautifully Peaceful, Exquisitely Functional

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful stay in a little hidden gem into the trees where the moods of the water could be seen. Everything inside this well appointed place was carefully thought out: The equipped kitchen, the beautiful floors and ceilings, Fantastic TV, working WiFi, screens, comfortable beds, the fireplace, and the carpeted deck...I may have left out a few things.... The owners were wonderfully thoughtful communicators, and I cannot wait to return soon!

The photos posted on VRBO do not truly represent this place, the reality is much better! We were pleasantly surprised by the cabin. Very spacious. We had everything that we needed and even more...Lots of attention to little details by the owners that we really appreciated. We loved the deck where we had coffee every morning looking at the ocean. Very relaxing and quiet area. We saw some rabbits and deers just to name a few. Great location to go discover the rest of the island. It was a nice gateway from the city to spend some quality family time with our teenagers. We recommend this place at100%! Thank you for sharing your cabin with us!

Much needed relaxing get away!

  • 5 of 5

I have been here before and have returned! Much needed time to get away and relax while enjoying the beautiful view, the comforts of being home, and exploring the various places. Place is always kept clean, fully equipped with the basics, as well as a variety of movies and games to enjoy! Looking forward to our next trip!

Fresh air - no humidity

  • 5 of 5

Priceless! Sunrise, Gooey Ducks, Deer, Cottage - spacious, clean - everything is labelled -very organized - yet comfy. This property can allow the night hawk to watch TV and the morning person to percolate coffee, turn on lights, sit on the deck and relax and watch the sun rise over the water. Seacroft 18 can allow complete rejuvenating of mind, body and soul. We have been given a gift of peace - and will always treasure this property as a vision of mind over matter.

The Perfect Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Views from the deck and upper windows, access to the beach for morning and evening strolls, and the piece and quiet needed for an enjoyable restful stay. The kids will have a ball playing on the shore or in the yard. Evening campfires by the ocean to roast hot dogs and marshmellows for great family fun. This unit easily sleeps six and has space beside for a tent.
