A self-contained cozy comfy waterfront accommodation for the perfect getaway; Read all about it.
A one bedroom self-contained waterfront suite looking out to beautiful Deep Bay. At the bottom of the garden where ocean meets land stands the mighty spruce tree, a look-out for the majestic fish eagles patiently waiting with eagle eyes ready to pounce on their prey; & where brightly coloured rainbows & sunsets grace our sky against a backdrop of the Beaufort Mountains range.
Orca Suite is ideal for a couple looking for time to relax, rejuvenate and recuperate. This self-contained unit has all the essentials to make your holiday run smoothly: - Your own private entrance, a well equipped kitchen, an antique oak dining table with 5 chairs, just in case you entertain. There is a 40" Smart HD TV in the living room, and a comfy futon couch that pulls out to accommodate either 2 children or 2 adults. You have a full bath/shower. If you prefer eating outside enjoy a patio with table, chairs, and a gas BBQ. There is shared laundry on site.
This cozy little hideaway on Vancouver Island is about a 45-minute drive north from the Nanaimo ferry and about 30 minutes south from Comox airport. Deep Bay is in an area known as Lighthouse Country where you can enjoy many activities in and around the area, whether it is spring, summer, fall or winter.
Your retreat is steps away from the ocean where at the bottom of the garden you can easily launch your kayaks, row boats, canoes and/or paddle boards. Next door is a boat launch and a marina for any larger boats. Just across the bay is our sandy beach playground that triples in size depending on the tidal-moon cycle. There you can enjoy swimming, beach-combing, building sand-castles, taking photos, painting, or just chilling with a good book. The area is famous for wild oysters and clams, so don’t forget your fishing license so you can have fun digging for your dinner. Close by and a pleasant walk leads to Vancouver Island University’s Deep Bay Marine Field Station where you can learn all about the sea life in the area. If you don’t have a boat but fancy going fishing for salmon & cod you will find Van Isle charters steps away down at the dock. Lighthouse Country has enchanting walking/hiking & biking trails close by.
Fancy a spelunking adventure, check out the famous Horne Lake Caves; it’s a half-hour drive inland. The Pacific Rainforest Adventure Tours located in Parksville is a delightful way to learn and explore this magical island. Numerous unique and artistic treasure stores a-wait when you take an extravaganza adventure into Bowser, Coombs, & Qualicum Beach for a variety of experiences awaits you. Heading north and guarding over us all is the majestic Mount Washington where hikers, bikers and photographers are free to wander her range when her snow cloak has melted; and in the winter months you have all the winter delights to explore and enjoy.
At the end of the day, right next door is our local licensed restaurant/bar "Ship & Shore" where you can enjoy a relaxing meal on the deck and watch the comings and goings of life in Deep bay.
With gentle waves lapping at the bottom of the garden and vibrant mesmerizing sunsets setting for the day, under the trees swings a hammock and a gazebo allowing for quiet contemplation and reflection. As darkness descends, clear skies allow the heavens to twinkle and wink at us. Down below, as Deep Bay quietens, and depending on the fire hazard, an open pit fire can be enjoyed while listening to the sounds around you of wildlife calling, and the echo of conversations carried on the wind.
Just a little tasting of what can be enjoyed while staying at this cozy comfy retreat in charming Deep Bay.
