About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bath...Just Steps From The Ocean!

Just steps from the beach, this comfortable 4 bedroom guest house is the ideal home-away-from-home. Very well equipped to accommodate families, with two full bathrooms and two levels. Very private, fully fenced yard with beautiful deck and gardens, with lots of storage room for RV and/or large boat. Only 50 yards/m to the waters edge from the front yard. Perfect setup for surfers - paddle out to the break right out front from the house, and rinse off in the outdoor shower after your session.

Fire pit, BBQ, fireplace, full kitchen with dishwasher, outdoor shower, spacious laundry/mud room, covered porch, ample parking, WiFi and ocean views are just some of the added features of our beach home.

There are two bedrooms on the main floor: the master bedroom has a king bed and the second bedroom has a queen. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and sliding door access to the backyard patio. The other bedroom has a separate full bathroom also on the main floor.

On the second floor there is a charming and bright attic bedroom with one single and one double bed that can easily be pushed together for a king bed depending on guests' needs. A second, very spacious attic bedroom has a queen bed.

This is an amazing, ruggedly beautiful part of the coast - enjoy fresh ocean air and beach walks at your doorstep, salmon and fresh water fishing, hiking/backpacking on the Juan de Fuca or West Coast trail, biking, and surfing at Sombrio only 15 minutes away! The house is located right at the river mouth which is also great for flat water canoeing/kayaking and SUPing.

About Christine Becker

We are a family of 4 from Squamish BC who love to surf, beach comb, and relax by the ocean. We split our time between our home on the mainland and our retreat in Port Renfrew. We want our boys to grow up enjoying the coast and running around on the beach!

Christine Becker purchased this house in 2016

Why Christine Becker chose Port Renfrew

We love how small and quite Port Renfrew is, and we love to surf. We've always dreamed of owning property on a surf break, and Port Renfrew has this and so much more. It is our home away from home.

What makes this house unique

Our home is very family-friendly, with a fully fenced front and back yard. It is also located in a very quiet part of the Beach Camp neighbourhood, which we love. We have a covered front porch that is perfect for enjoying the outdoors and taking in the view, even on a rainy day. We are a short 5 minute drive to Botanical Beach and only a 15 minute drive to Sombrio. We have a very homey home and we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

What a gem

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't really do this place justice. The proximity to the water is ideal ( you can see the ocean from the house) and it is incredibly spacious. We spent the weekend there with our two kids and a friend and we have ZERO complaints. Roasted marshmallows in the back yard at the fire pit.. took in the sights - it was so comfortable there. Bedding was new and lovely. oh and there were tons of board games and toys tucked away that we pulled out and used - the kids loved it. We'll be back!!

An amazing property and home!

  • 5 of 5

This place is fantastic. Very spacious and well stocked with everything you could need for a very comfortable stay. We can't wait to stay here again. Port Renfrew is a sparkling jewel, well worth visiting.

Cozy Renfrew House with lots of beds and amenities

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying here this last weekend. We had great weather for December and enjoyed lots of outdoor time going to Botanical Beach, using the canoe from the house (paddles yes but bring your own life jackets). Lots of beach time but enjoyed coming back here. 2 families with 4 small children there was lots of baby and toddler stuff to use (high chair crib, playpen) and lots of toys and books tucked all over the house. Beds were comfy and kitchen had almost everything needed (couldn't find any cookie sheets but there was a casserole we used for the oven). We were very glad the guest book warned us of the air raid siren used to alert the volunteer fire department otherwise we would have all run up to higher ground fearing a tsunami when it went off at 5:15am! Thanks!

Great home in Port Renfrew

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home in July 2017 and it was a great rental. The house is very clean and has everything you need. Our kids loved the upstairs bedrooms, they had their own space and made it their home while there. The beds and bedding were excellent, very comfortable. The house is nice and close to a beach and the restaurants in town. The hosts were great and communication was excellent. I would highly recommend this property.
