Sunny Shores Beach House *Hot Tub + Ocean + Mountains + Sunsets = Paradise!

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,100 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

Sunny property with mountain and ocean views. Sleeps 6. Hot tub & large deck.

Ocean and mountain views with sunny south west exposure.

Grab an Adirondack and enjoy our sandy beach with a cool beverage or just watch nature go by from one of the hammocks.

If you are feeling more adventurous, you can go for a swim, canoe or paddle in the warm tidal waters.

The Beach House is on the ocean which has tides that change twice a day. That means that sometimes when the tide is out there is no water.

In the meantime, take advantage of our picnic table for some alfresco dining under a fairy light canopy of our rare & protected Gary Oaks.

Just off the house is a massive deck with hot tub, dining table for 6 and great views of the nature reserve, ocean and mountains.

Our house is fully renovated with all new appliances and has a fully equipped kitchen with gas range.

Upstairs in the den, a giant sofa and TV awaits you for those days you just want to chill.

High speed internet and cable packages included.

Downstairs you will find a large bedroom with king size bed with views of mountains.

Upstairs is where you will find the other bedroom with a queen size bed and more views.

Also located upstairs is a double sized futon in a flex room that has a full length curtain for privacy.

The sun room has a custom built in sectional that is a great place to sit back and read, nap or just hang out and relax.

There is also a seasonal “Bunkie" on the property that has bunk beds and a desk. (no bathroom/appropriate for kids only).

Perfect for a writer's retreat or for the older kids to have their own space.

A small DVD player is sure to keep them entertained.

Parking is available on the property.

If you are looking for a place to play Beer Pong, we ask that you look elsewhere for your holiday.

About kris cable

We have both worked in the Film Industry for over 20 years.

8 years ago, we got married on a nearby beach and fell in love with the area.

kris cable purchased this house in 2016

Why kris cable chose Fanny Bay

We loved the South West exposure which is difficult to find on the east coast of Vancouver Island. We really are amazed how hot it gets on that side of Ships Point peninsula.

What makes this house unique

The ocean, mountain views and bird sanctuary mean there is always something to sit back and watch.

Also, a sandy beach is a plus.

There are plenty of walking trails with lots to see or explore. Check out the "Wacky Woods" or what the locals refer to as "Clam Beach" and listen to Sea Lions as you watch the sun set.

Can you keep a secret?

  • 5 of 5

If so, keep reading. If not, stop right here. :). You see, the problem is, when you find a perfect place, you want to tell everyone, but then “everyone” will want to go there and it gets hard to book. Sunny Shores is perfect. Welcoming, comfortable and equipped with everything you could possibly need. Hot tub every morning. Hot tub every evening. Birds everywhere. Beauty all around you. The beach house is a home, not a rental. Live plants and homey touches are everywhere. The eclectic style is perfect for Vancouver Island. Kris was readily available and fun to chat with. Comfy bed, clean space. What more could you ask for. But remember, shhhh, don’t tell anyone. Already planning to come back again.

Beautiful home, perfect location, excellent hosts!

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful, well maintained and stocked with everything you need. The location is gorgeous with walk on access to a small beach. The views are incredible and the deck and hot tub (and bbq) make this the perfect choice for a relaxing getaway! We were traveling with two young children and they absolutely loved scouring the beach for seashells and warming up in the hot tub! Thank you Kris for a wonderful stay...was exactly what we hoped for for our girls weekend! We will definitely be back!

Lake Country

Most beautiful, and romantic location.

  • 5 of 5

Kris, and Sean were amazing hosts. The Sunny Shores was the most beautiful vacation rental we have ever stayed. Their home was well equipped, and the only thing you need to bring is your loved ones to share the experience with. The smallest detail did not go unnoticed. Kris was so accommodating and if you ever needed anything she would reply quickly. Their beachfront was lit up with lanterns, and the hot tub was a nice end to our very active day. The nicest touch was the half acre trail to walk along the beach, and I would only assume would be even more beautiful in the summer. They were well equipped for picnics on the beach in the summertime. We are very grateful to have had the opportunity to stay in their beautiful home. And we hope to come again with family, friends, or just my husband and I.

Warm Wishes

Tara Muir and Jesse Hicks

Relaxing Getaway by the Water💕

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at sunny shores 🙂?. It’s a beautiful home that had lots of room for 2 families. It was great to be so close to the water....only steps from the back door. Everything was very clean and decorated nicely. It didn’t feel like a vacation rental, but a well loved home. My hubby and I also enjoyed hot tubbing on the patio when our little one was snoozing. A great place for a relaxing getaway to escape the city! Thanks for sharing Your beautiful space!

Retreat nestled in nature

Kris was a wonderful host. She took special effort to decorate the house for our stay over Christmas. That and her attention to small details made us feel truly cared for during our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing Sunny Shores for your Christmas vacation. We were so glad you got a chance to check out our local treasure the Whacky Woods. It was a real pleasure meeting you two. You guys were fantastic guests. Happy travels. Kris

Perfect Atmosphere for an Amazing Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect property for two couples celebrating a birthday. "It's like something out of Homes and Cottages magazine," one of our group commented. The quirky, stylish decoration fit wonderfully with the cabin-y feel and beautiful setting. It was very well-stocked and we appreciated the labels on all the drawers and cupboards detailing the contents, which made things easy to find and put away. We spent our days exploring the region and hiking, and our evenings playing board games and soaking in the hot tub. Our late arrival and busy days unfortunately meant our schedules didn't line up to meet the owners, which would have been nice, however they immediately responded to any questions we had and I have no doubt if there had been any issues, they would have been there in a second. I can absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking for very relaxing and scenic retreat. We felt very much refreshed and rejuvenated after our stay.
