About the Property

1 large sleeping loft with a queen size and 2 singles, small kitchen, laundry

The Chahayis houses are architecturally designed to share the same property, connected with a covered breezeway, hand crafted cedar logs and cedar trees act as support to the Cedar beam work. The entire structure is clad inside and out with wide planked cedar. No drywall, only Mother Nature's unique wallpaper of wood grain and knots to catch your attention. The dramatic entry way of the main house makes you immediately feel the connection to the structure.
The Cottage is ideal for small families on a budget, or a romantic couple looking for a quiet get away. It has a large sleeping loft with 1 queen size and 2 singles. Full bathroom with heated floors, small kitchen, with a hot plate, laundry room,
The Mainhouse living room commands the stunning view of the magestic Pacific with all its furry . This house has 3 bedrooms each with a queensize bed, and 2 of these bedrooms also offer single window beds, which have glass on all 3 sides. The upstairs master bedroom has an ensuite with an artistically designed tiled deep soaker jacuzzi with a skylite and a window that opens to the ocean breeze. The master also has a large picture window with its own private deck. Down stairs on the main floor is where your eyes open to the vast oceanscape and Frank Island. We have a small kitchen, laundry room, bathroom with tub and shower. The dining table seats 4. Full living room with a view that cannot be put into words. Guitar and electric keyboard, games, puzzles, and lots of books. Chahayis warms you up from your feet with cherry wood flooring and heated slate bathroom floors.

Car: Necessary

The ocean is so important to your stay. ensure you take a walk on the beach as soon as you arrive to get in the groove. Better yet, go surfing or boogie boarding, to truly feel the common denominator of us all. Or take a day and whale watch on your way to Hot-springs Cove. Or try kayaking over to Meares Island to walk among the 1000 year old cedars. Perhaps a visit to Grice Bay mud flats to see the shore birds.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: Saint and Janet have owned this property since they could pitch a tent and camp on it.Janet is a teacher and Saint is a floatplane pilot. They have 3 sons, now grown men. They came as a family from Saltspring and would spend every weekend and holiday showing their kids the wild pacific. In the summer the family would spend many summer days, playing in the surf, fishing and exploring the Pacific Rim National Park. In 94 they started to build with local builder Westisle Construction and architect Bob Cunliffe. 2.5 years later they had more than they dreamed of. Simply put, they had to share this paradise with the rest of the world. They could see how the place energized them and wanted to share the experience. As you will experience for yourself Chahayis is difficult to leave, for that same reason Saint and Janet dream of retiring here someday.
