Rest and relaxation at its best! Large and expansive property. Wood burning fireplace, gorgeous view, deer all around and ultimate privacy! All the tools to prepare a Thanksgiving dinner. Very clean, including the hot tub!
Only slight downsides were the unattached 3rd bedroom making going outside in the rain and snow bit of a bummer and the 3 industrial flood lights that never go out from the logging site across the bay...but those didn’t change our 5 star rating...just be aware😊.
Thanks for taking the time to review Arwen. Glad you enjoyed the privacy and view even from the kitchen! Hope you can come back to visit us soon. We haven't noticed any lights across the bay so maybe it was a particular project that week. Good to know. Warmly, Victoria
Had a great time at this property would do it again
Thanks Jeff. We would welcome you back for your next time you want to enjoy nature and some RnR. Warmly, Victoria
We could not get over the beauty of the sunsets in this lovely home. Even during cooler weather in September we enjoyed sitting out on the deck by the fire and watching the stunning sunset while seals swam feet away from the deck. This house has everything you need for any time of year. The beds are so comfortable and the fire places inside and outside are a great touch. Fantastic local restaurants and the property manager was helpful and attentive to any need we had.
Definitely a home away from home experience. We will be back.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write a response Corinna. We enjoy the ever changing sunsets as well - from inside or outside. We do hope you're able to come back and enjoy another family get together. Warmly, Victoria
We had a wonderful stay at Rock n water! The house was perfectly appointed, had everything we could have wanted!! We will miss having coffee or a glass of wine in the hot tub!! We saw amazingly a pod of killer whales, otters and seals! So cool! We had car trouble and Victoria and Mary totally accommodated us for a few more days! Such a pleasurable stay! We’ll come back!!
Thanks Michaleen for taking the time to write a lovely review. How lucky you were to see the whales! I’m so glad you had that amazing experience. They’ve been around but we have not yet seen them. Hope you come back soon. Warmly Victoria
Beautiful home in a perfect place
This is an immaculate home in a truly beautiful part of the world. We spent four days in Victoria’s home and had a wonderful time. If you are looking to get away from it all, this is a wonderful place to do it.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write a lovely review Cameron. We do love the private, slower pace surrounded by nature. We hope you will consider us again when you want an escape. Warmly Victoria

About Victoria Brown
We are an executive couple who fell in love with this unique waterfront property which was featured before on VRBO with loads of 5 star reviews. We love the water, nature, sea life and travel.
Victoria Brown purchased this House in 2016
Why Victoria Brown chose Beachcomber
Our home's proximity to the ocean is no longer allowed so it truly is one of the most unique oceanfront properties on Vancouver island with an expansive 80 foot gated deck that allows you to be closer to sea life, eagles, deer and sunsets. A recent masterful renovation enhanced this home into a luxurious, private retreat, complete with open concept kitchen and great room with expansive ocean views. Vaulted ceilings, panoramic windows and wood burning fireplace set up the experience of optimum relaxation. The bonus room with its own kitchenette and ensuite enhance the privacy of this dream get away.
What makes this House unique
Proximity to ocean, private rocky beach, hot tub steps from ocean, gas lit fireplace on huge oceanside deck, easy access for kayaking, great biking, wood burning fireplace inside, vaulted ceilings, floor to sky windows, 2 bedrooms on main and bonus bedroom with a separate entrance upstairs. Completely transformed in a recent renovation, this is a breathtaking unique property.
