This is a magnificent house with a view to die for. The main outlook is of the bay overlooking Newcastle Island which is a gem in itself (I would highly recommend a visit) and we spent hours sitting in front of the window looking for wildlife, watching the boats and ferries and appreciating the sunrise. Pre visit arrangements were easy...

Wow....This house is beautiful and exceeded all our expectations. The view from the patio was amazing. A great place to have coffee in the morning. Everything that we might possibly need was provided....no detail too small. Su, thank you for a wonderful vacation. We intend to visit again. Thanks from all of us!

About the neighbourhood
Fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing and sea birds calling. Stroll the beach directly in front of the house looking for shells and sea treasures. Watch our resident otters play at water's edge. Spend endless hours watching eagles soar, seals fishing, the ferries coming and going, sea planes overhead and myriad shorebirds looking for dinner. Wander, swim, read, stroll, kayak, storm watch, sleep in a deck chair, relax over dinner, BBQ a fresh salmon; this is British Columbia oceanfront at its best!

This modern well-equipped home has everything you will need for a relaxing, memorable vacation.
