WALK ON WATERFRONT ESTATE SIZED HOME
Perfect for family gatherings and reunions as there is a safe and expansive sandy beach right out front for the kids to play in. At low tide the water is 400 meters out but in the afternoons when tide comes in, water temperature will reach 27 Celsius (used a meat thermometer to verify) so it is surprisingly warm. Hard to find a more relaxing and beautiful spot. Look through the photos above on the site and if you would like more, leave me your email address and I will send them. 30 day booking minimum.

Description of house and property:
QUALICUM BEACH HAS 2 DIFFERENT TYPES OF BEACH. a beautiful sandy beach to hike on, play on, lay out on and swim in...or a primarily rocky beach...less than 1% of all homes in Qualicum Beach are both walk-on waterfront (not on the bluff) AND on the sandy beach..Our house is one of those 1%. WHICH ONE WERE YOU LOOKING FOR? The photos I post on site this showing our sandy beach are standing directly in front of my house. This is the beach you will enjoy when you book with me. Others on vrbo with similar pricing are advertising beachfront, but it is primarily rocky...or else they would post actual beach photos verifying what they have. Don't be mistaken...check it out before you book! Your experience at Eagle Haven Beach House is going to be a wonderful and memorable time for you, your family and friends....
"Escape to all that Beautiful, Natural British Columbia has to offer. First, you are right on the most sought after sandy beach in the area. It is a low bank, walk-on waterfront large estate size home. What you will see and experience is the beauty and serenity of nature every day. The sea life, incredible views of the water, islands and sunrises and sunsets with a 180 degree unobstructed view of all right from the house. Choose to relax and soak it all in or be active with biking, hiking, golfing, salmon fishing, shopping...all within minutes away. This area of Vancouver Island, called "Oceanside" has scenic waterfalls, unique day trips like the Coombs Market with goats on the roof or spelunking at Horne Lake Caves. Much, much more but most of all, bring your family for the times you will never forget together at the "Eagle Haven Beach House" in Qualicum Beach."
No smoking has ever taken place in the home. Non-smoking, no drug use of any kind allowed. Thank you.

About Steve B.
I honestly feel there is a magic being here at the house and the serenity it offers. I hope you feel the same way when you spend your vacation or holidays here. We raised our children here from the time they were 2-4 years old so we have great memories of how much they loved to play on the beach and explore.
Why Steve B. chose Qualicum Beach
I feel that the old saying is true about "location, location, location." Here you walk right out your door onto the beach. When I first moved to the house, I had not lived on the water before and some days I literally would be sitting and looking out the windows to the views of the water, the wildlife, the tide coming right up to the house the the ebbing out as far as 400 yards from the house at mid-day, exposing the beautiful sandy beach. My kids were small when we moved here and they could play safely outside on the beach in the tide pools, finding little creatures and then swimming late in the day because the water is shallow and it very gradually gets deeper as you walk a couple hundred yards out. And it's warm water! Surprisingly because the sun warms the sand, I have taken the temperature as high as 80 degrees (27 Celsius) in the afternoons when the tide flows back in. So here you are at the beach with peace and serenity but just 5 minutes from the quaint town of Qualicum Beach with its unique shops and world class grocery store, Quality Foods. The "big town" of Nanaimo is just 25 minutes South where they have every type of store you can imagine. 7 championship golf courses with 15 minutes and salmon fishing right in front of the house with charters available at French Creek Marina. ( 5 minutes away) Several great restaurants also within 10 minutes as well.
What makes this House unique
You are on the best beach in the area to start. It is a quiet, serene and incredibly gorgeous setting. You will view wildlife from you windows or deck such as seals, eagles and dozens of varieties of water birds. Great salmon fishing is directly in front of the house. You can charter just 2 miles down the road. There are 8 championship golf courses within 15 minutes including Eaglecrest which is just 1 km. away. The water in front of the house, oddly is the same temperature as in Hawaii for late afternoon swims when the tide comes in across the warm sand. 27 degrees Celsius. I measured it with a meat thermometer because it was hard to believe it was so warm. You get both the low tide of the day where you can walk or jog across the sandy beach and high tide which is shallow enough for kids to swim in front of the house. The list goes on and on....your time with your family and friends is going to be truly wonderful and memorable and I will do everything I can to assure that for you. Welcome to Eagle Haven Beach House!

You will love this place
I don't know where to start. This is an amazing place that words and pictures cannot do justice to. You really need to be there and experience it. We were a large group. 7 adults, 2 teenagers, 3 toddlers and one infant. This huge house accommodated everyone easily with room to spare.
The floor plan is awesome. The living area, the dining area and the kitchen all have large windows facing the ocean. So no matter where you are, you always enjoy the view.
The ocean is calm and gentle and safe for toddlers to play in. The water is warm!
The house was well prepared for us when we arrived.
There is lot to do around all within 20 mins or less, of driving.
We also saw a lot of wildlife which was an added bonus!
If you are thinking of renting this place, i very highly recommended it.
A few things I would recommend that would be nice to have:
1) Some group games/board games
2) Better lighting in the living room
3) A few more appliances in the kitchen, kitchen tools etc. (this is only because our group did a lot of cooking!)
These are just nice to have and in no way affect the awesomeness of this property.
This was our 3rd annual family reunion and the first in Vancouver. The previous one's were on the US West Coast. Everyone loved this place more than the previous ones.
The owner is very friendly, very accommodating and very responsive to queries.
So, rent it already!
Our favourite Beach House...
When I think about the vacation our family spent at Eagle Haven Beach House, the word "magical" seems to fit. Here, you are literally right on the beach. I could sit and look at the view all day long but it is much more than that.
We usually began our mornings sitting in chairs on the beach, having coffee with our feet up on a log. Sometimes others in the family would join us but we always shared this time watching the eagles, seals and other wildlife who lived there.
Breakfast was easy, as the kitchen had everything we needed. Sharing the breakfast with family and again sharing that awesome view. From morning til night, it was beach walks, golf outings, paddle boarding, barbeque or just relaxing and watching the kids play out in the tide pools and on the sand. Ending the day with a fun little bonfire on the beach, watching the spectacular sunsets...pretty incredible, I must say.
Also, the house is so comfortable and peaceful, it was hard to leave. Our family reunion could not have been spent at a better location. I highly recommend it.
Very happy to hear your stay was all that you expected. You are welcome back any time!
STAYING AT EAGLE HAVEN BEACH HOUSE
Presently, I am lucky enough to be living at the sea shore in one of the most beautiful places I have ever experienced, Qualicum Beach Vancouver Island, B.C., Canada. Here it is not hard to feel a direct connection with nature. Waking up to the sound of the ocean caressing the naturally sorted rocky shore, the eagles voice assuring you of their watchful presence, and the ocean birds and seals welcoming the new day with gatherings, feedings and dance. In the distance, Islands of varying wonderful shades and shapes float in the early day mist, shadowed by majestic snow capped peaks seemingly touching the morning sky. It is,... truly Amazing!! This beach house has it all.
Qualicum Beach is a unique tourist destination which includes everything for the outdoors person such as golf, salmon fishing, hiking, biking, sightseeing and relaxing. Plus the downtown area has unique shops and excellent grocery store all just 5 minutes away. Here, you are away from civilization on an incredible and beautiful sandy beach location but just 5 minutes if you want to get back to where the people are in town. There are 7 championship golf courses within 15 minutes including Eaglecrest Course only 1 km from the house. French Creek Marina with fresh fish store, 2 restaurants and a pub are also 5 minutes from the house.
