Long relaxed days punctuated with dips in the refreshing water of pristine Shawnigan Lake. BBQ Dinner, an outdoor movie and warm star-filled nights. This is the essence of Summer Living!

Shawnigan Lake is a seasonal village of 8000 people tucked just 45 minutes north of Victoria, BC. A popular destination year round for Summer Relaxing and Winter Getaways.

This 1600 square foot house has 3 bedrooms including a loft, 2 bathrooms and can comfortably sleep 6 people. The Master Suite has a King Sized Bed, second room has a Queen Sized Bed and Loft has 2 single beds and drop down ladder(great for kids!) The property is geared towards families, and is fully equipped with all amenities. The house is right on the lake, you really can't get any closer than this! You can use the 2 man kayak, 2 bicycles, and miscellaneous Lake gear. This is a family home, equipped with a pack & play, highchair and children's cutlery and games. There's a wii (just bring your own games), some books and puzzles too.

The kitchen table seats 8 people, an eating bar that seats 2, patio tables seat up to 8, there's an outdoor couch, outdoor shower and a cooler you can use to store cold drinks on the dock. Bring your own projector and use our outdoor movie screen (so much fun on a summer night!)

Relax in the main floor Jacuzzi tub, watch a show in the Living Room or Master Suite or enjoy the sunset and sunrise on the deck with a steaming cup of coffee in hand, there's nothing better!

The house is on the East side of the Lake and has direct sun all day long. If you have your own boat, bring it up, we are just around the corner from the Gas Bar.

We provide dark roast organic coffee for each stay with cream and sugar. There are beach towels, an ipod (or iphone) docking station for music, and charging stations for your personal devices (just bring your own cord). If you have kids, you can use the plasma cars downstairs in the underground patio. This is also where you can watch outdoor movies and dine in the shade.

Laundry is available, just bring your own soap. There's a laundry dryer line outside as well to dry bathing suits and towels each day.

This is the perfect place to enjoy an amazing Summer Getaway! We are happy to help assist with anything that helps you enjoy your stay. Amazing memories await!
