Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I am a stay at home Mum and am very involved in my toddler's day to day activities. I enjoy spending time outdoors, gardening and tending to our beautiful property. I love to read and go swimming at the local pool or Spider Lake. Cooking for my friends and family is always fun, trying new recipes and culinary techniques. Traveling is my passion and although I don't get much of a chance to do it these days, I hope to in the future, exploring new cultures and history. I hope to provide a warm and relaxing atmosphere for guests providing information and whatever else is required.

Why the Owner Chose Qualicum Beach, BC, Canada:
When we bought our 11 acre property, it had our main house and a shell of a cabin. There were no floors, adequate stairs or walls. Accommodations are very important to me when traveling, I wanted to transfer this cabin into something I would enjoy staying in and something guests would be comfortable and enjoy as much as I did. We began extensive renovations in May 2014. We lucked out and found the best carpenter ever! Walls went up, floors went down, old stuff got touch ups and new stuff found it's way into the space. Recently we were fortunate enough to put a spectacular wrap around deck around the cabin which enables guests to sit outside and get the most amazing views of our very active pond!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This space is amazing for watching wildlife, from eagles nesting, ducks swimming, beavers paddling, deer grazing and fish jumping! A variety of fresh herbs available at the front of the cabin (seasonal) and huge blackberry bushes located just off the deck area. Having morning coffee on the deck at sunrise or wine at dusk, the views will not disappoint. Fishing in the pond is always enjoyable, you won't catch any ten pounders but there is an abundance if you just want to fish for fun!
