A self-contained cozy comfy waterfront suite for the perfect getaway;
Welcome to Orca Suite, a one bedroom self-contained waterfront accommodation situated in the heart of 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 skies against a backdrop of the Beaufort Mountains range.
Orca Suite is ideal for a couple looking for time to relax, rejuvenate and recuperate. This private and 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 is situated in mid-Vancouver Island, about a 45-minute drive north from the Nanaimo ferry and 45 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.
THINGS TO DO:
Your retreat is steps away from the ocean where at the bottom of the garden you can easily launch your kayaks, rowboats, canoes and/or paddle boards. COMOX VALLEY KAYAKS & CANOES will deliver your fancy.
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, 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 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 and adventures await when you take an extravaganza trip into Bowser, Coombs, & Qualicum Beach.
There are Whale watching, scuba diving/ snorkelling and Grizzly bear tours to choose from if you fancy.
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 taste of what you can enjoy while relaxing, rejuvenating and recuperating in charming Deep Bay.
