|Property type||chateau / country house|
|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Imagine waking up to the reflection of the sunrise on the ocean. Watch the eagles, heron, kingfishers, ducks even humming birds from this bird watchers paradise. Stay awhile and you are sure to see deer wandering down the beach, otters and seals playing in the ocean. All of this just 10 minutes from the shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants of downtown Nanaimo.
Enjoy this luxurious 2 bedroom suite designed and decorated to reflect the awesome nature of the surroundings.
The kitchen has beautiful granite countertops and stainless steel appliances include a gas range and of course a dishwasher.
There is also a gas BBQ on the deck and an outdoor wood stove available for summer crab feasts.
The master bedroom includes a queen sized bed, electric fireplace, spacious closet and sitting area with an amazing ocean view.
The second bedroom has two twin beds, with pull-out daybeds. Again, the vaulted ceilings and big windows frame a lovely water view.
The living room is comfortable with leather couches, a flatscreen TV, DVD player and another fireplace.
The yoga/art/dance studio has a separate entrance, mirrored walls, yoga and tumbling mats. It is a peaceful space to stretch, meditate, dance or draw. (please bring your own art supplies)
The hot tub is located at the far end of the house and has a 180 degree infinity ocean view. A lovely spot for either the sunrise or the sunset.
You'll find the trampoline past the fish pond, set in the forest. It is a favourite spot for kids, use at your own risk, but it does have a safety net.
Located just 10 minutes from the Departure Bay and SeaAir terminals, we are as little as a 1/2 hour flight from Vancouver. Perfect for a rejuvenating weekend away from the busy city.
I traded in a banking career in busy Vancouver to live by the ocean and love life every day. After renovating and designing this property, we converted the west wing into a luxury ocean front suite.
Lucky for you! Come and be transformed by a week of pristine west coast beauty.

This is a unique south facing property with a virtually private beach. Honestly, we see more deer than people wandering the beach in any given week.
The sheltered cove creates a warm, calm bay perfect for swimming, kayaking or paddle boarding.
It is a true island experience, without having to drive for hours, or take another ferry. Nanaimo is the second largest city on Vancouver Island and offers delightful entertainment, culinary and adventure options.
We are located only 10 minute from the Departure Bay ferry and SeaAir terminals, so your travel time is minimized. Yet we are far enough from the public beach to give you a true sense of peace and nature.
We had a wonderful stay at Dream Beach House. Located on a scenic stretch of coastline in the heart of Departure Bay, the property offers amazing views and all day sun through the enormous windows that stretch the length of the suite. It's beautifully decorated and well appointed, creating a feeling of both luxury and convenience. The beds are amazingly comfortable! My kids (9 and 11) loved the hot tub and the trampoline. I wish we'd had time to take the kayaks out.
Thanks Camille for your hospitality! We will be back.
We had a truly awesome vacation at this wonderful oceanfront suite. We stayed from Nov 15 to Jan 31. Camille is a great, friendly and gracious hostess and quickly handled any small issues we had. The suite was very comfortable and the location is fabulous. The peacefulness of looking at the water in the bay was relaxing and refreshing. We enjoyed watching the sea otters, sea lions and ducks as well as the BC ferries and the float planes. We found Nanaimo and Camille's suite to be a GEM. The nearby Neck Point Park and the Pacific Biological Station were wonderful places for a daily walk with our dog. We would certainly recommend this property to everyone - and we hope to return next fall.

We came to this get beautiful retreat for a nice get away for the weekend. The moment we got there Camille was welcoming and friendly. Our dog loved playing in the beach front and swimming. The Kayak's made for a fun adventure to get out on the water, its a beautiful place to paddle around. The hot tub location leaves you feeling relaxed as you over look Departure Bay. We chose this place to get away from our hectic schedules and it was everything we needed!.
Our family of 5 enjoyed our stay at Camille's Beach House. The suite is welcoming and well-furnished with a beautiful ocean view. Camille is a friendly and warm host.
This home, and it feels like a home, is so close to Vancouver by ferry you feel like you've barely left. Super easy to find from ferry and simple to stock up with food and essentials en route. But once you settle in, you know you're a long way from the big city. Quiet, amazing view, very private and comfortable. Much more well equipped and supplied than most get away homes, you feel instantly relaxed and at home. With comforts like a superior hottub and many options for ocean water sports, you can relax right into this cozy, convenient spot. All the amenities and thoughtful extras you'd need, plus a big enough city close by should you need, this place has it all. Private and welcoming.
Best dog in the world will help welcome you.
I will again, and have already, happily reccomended this place to friends.
If you are a couple, two couples or a large family, you will love this wonderfully appointed vacation home.
The property was even better than depicted. Everything was clean and well organized.
Camille was very helpful and responsive to our questions.
We particularly enjoyed the view, the comings and goings of the ferries and seaplanes, and walks along the harbor.
Nanaimo is a gentle city with good restaurants and parks. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the people friendly.
The weather was perfect!
We want to come back and will highly recommend this house to others!
