3 Bedroom Detatched Cottage Located Just A Stones Throw From Various Activities

We encourage all guests to read the Cottage description. We want our guests to be happy and comfortable during their stay. Therefore we want you to be certain our cozy Cottage meets your needs. Stone's Throw Cottage retreat is a newly renovated detached cottage nestled in old growth forest on a beautiful acreage in Qualicum Beach BC. The 750 sq ft Cottage is comfortable, cozy and bright. There is an apartment size fridge with freezer, two burner stove top, microwave, Keurig, Coffee maker, toaster and a six burner outdoor grill with side burner. Please note there is no oven. Coffee, a variety of teas, sugar, salt & pepper and other common kitchen staples are provided. Linens, dishes, cutlery, shampoo etc. are also provided. The Cottage sleeps six people but please keep in mind it is a 750 sq ft Cottage not a large home. The kitchen table seats four comfortably and there are two stools provided if you need to seat six at the table. The living room area is relaxing and cozy, with that said there is not enough space for more than one couch. If you are renting for six people some will have to pull up a chair as we simply don't have the space for more furniture. TV, cable and free Wifi are provided. Outside you will find a fenced area for guests and pets, with a picnic table that seats six a large deck surrounded by hundreds of trees. Parking is provided for our guests. There is plenty of privacy from the owners residents. The Cottage is close driving distance to the beach, shopping, Coombs, Qualicum Falls, markets, restaurants, walking trails and fresh seafood. We are approximately 36 minutes from the Nanaimo ferry, 8 minutes to the town of Qualicum Beach and 20 minutes to Parksville. Our acreage is near a clay pigeon shooting range. The events take place approximately once a week from 10 AM - 2 PM. We have had nearly 100 guests stay and this has never posed a problem but if it is a concern please contact us and we can forward the dates for these events.

Amazing getaway !

  • 5 of 5

Our time at Stones Throw was better than we could have asked for !! The cottage was clean and had everything we needed. We loved how peaceful and quiet it was, and how close it was to the beach and a bunch of beautiful trails. We had such a relaxing stay and can’t wait to come back! Thank you for your hospitality.

The cottage was a cozy retreat for my family and we had everything we needed. The beds were comfy and the hosts were welcoming. Christina and Jay are the kind of folks you want to know; caring, candid and genuine.

Clean, cute, quiet cozy cabin in the woods

Pride of ownership is evident and they were lovely hosts. It’s a bit off the beaten track, but the peace and quiet is worth it.

Wonderful little cottage

  • 5 of 5

It was our first visit to BC (Vancouver Island) and Christina and Jay made our stay so much more enjoyable. My family stayed in number of rentals over the past few years and this one was by far the best. Super clean, just the right size, plenty of privacy and the host was amazing to deal with. Christina responded to all my messages very quick and she was more than happy to give us some advice about what to visit on the island. Highly recommended.

Simply Impeccable. Spotless place that is extremely well kitted out. Cozy, quiet and serene.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family stay at Stone's throw cottage. The cottage has been beautifully restored and was like a 'dream home' for the kids. Lots of fun spaces, surrounded by forest with all the creature comforts you could ask for. It is tranquil yet close enough to town and the beach to make going out for the day easy. The owners, Christina and 'McGyver' provided generously for us (towels, crockery, cutlery, utensils, coffee, even good toilet paper) which made for a very comfortable stay. They made us all feel right at home. Everything was spotlessly clean and easy to use. We highly recommend this place for a quiet, recharging getaway.

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful weekend at Christina and Jay's cottage! It was just what we were looking for for a quiet trip away with our pups. We loved that it was away from everything and surrounded by beautiful forest. Our pups loved exploring and especially loved the treats that Christina had waiting for them upon our arrival! They really have thought of everything to make it a cozy retreat where you can just relax and enjoy yourself! We loved exploring the area and can't wait to return! Thanks again Christina and Jay!!
