About the property


Exquisite Oceanfront House

Welcome to our beach front home, please imagine your ensuing adventure in paradise. Enter into your special gateway to relaxing in lavish and comfortable surroundings. We offer you a chance to unwind, take in our stunning morning sunrises with your morning brew. Or enjoy the changing ocean view caused by the high and low tides, with your best friend. If it’s natures’ life you seek, spy the Eagles glide in effortless bliss, view the porpoises breaching gracefully toward the deep blue sea, or spot deer passing through our back yard. If you happen to be there in late September or early October, you can wade into the Bay and try your hand at fishing for Pink Salmon. If you relish meandering along the seashore, we have infinite tide pools to explore with abundant sea life all around you.

Located 9 minutes away from Nanaimo City and 6 minutes from Departure Bay Ferry terminal. This fabulous 3 bedroom house overlooks the Bay. All rooms have a waterfront view, even the garage! This four level, 3700 square foot house has an open concept living, dining room, and an Italian inspired modern kitchen with 5 burner gas stove, on the main floor. Conveniently outside the kitchen and dining room, there is a large patio with an outdoor BBQ, where you can enjoy your meals or just enjoy the view. Set apart from the rest of the house, an elegant, private, master bedroom, with a king size bed, a full ensuite, and a special bath tub/jacuzzi, with a breathtaking view. On the lower level are two bedrooms with queen sized beds, 2 bathrooms, a TV room with a double sofa bed, and for the kids, an interior play room with a TV for video games, and a cabinet queen sized bed. A special billiard and TV room with ensuite can be found as a place of refuge or party room, on the last level. This house can sleep 10 people. Pets are not permitted in the house.

The elegant house is just a short walk from restaurants, tennis courts, a children’s water park and playground. Grocery shopping is a 3 minute drive and the Shopping Centres are all within a 20 minute drive.

Come and experience the best holiday ever, in a house with a view you only dream of.

The best of the best!

  • 5 of 5

We wintered here for four months from New Brunswick. Absolutely the best property we have ever stayed in. Nanaimo is the place to be if you love hiking, nature, spectacular views and relaxing atmosphere. This house lacks nothing for your comfort and from morning to evening the view, the peace and the comfort make you never want to leave. Comfortable beds, fresh linen, soft towels and a kitchen that lacks for nothing. The house was very, very clean and we didn't have to buy a thing. Scott and Patricia care about this property and it shows. They are there for whatever you need. Thank you and glad we are friends now. Do not hesitate to rent this home as it is well worth the dollars.

Awesome property

  • 5 of 5

This property is spectacular. The house is as described and perfect for socializing. Very large kitchen and great room with dining room. The ocean views from the main floor and the decks on both floors and from the bedrooms were second to none. Scott, the owner, was great. He was easily accessible by phone when booking and prior to our arrival. The house was clean and the kitchen was well stocked with cook wear and utensils. I would recommend this property and will not hesitate to book again the next time I am in Nanaimo

outstandig property

  • 5 of 5

The minute that we walked in, the beauty of the place took our breath away.The view from all the windows is spectacular, the decor is classy, the furniture inside and out is very comfortable and the Italian style kitchen is well stocked from dishes, cooking implements and even spices.

The smart TV in the kitchen was very useful and made our little tablet redundant .

The location is very convenient to the beach, the promenade and the 7/11 where we would get our morning paper.

The activities on the bay kept us entertained, from the ferries to the local boats as well as the wildlife from birds of all sorts to deer and otters.

Scott, the manager was just a phone call away and prompt to answer all our questions.

The only challenge to the property is the driveway. As with most of the houses along this part of Hammond Bay the driveway is narrow, hidden and the street view is blocked by trees but with patience and care we made it out every time, intact

We really enjoyed the Departure creek park, a little peace of quiet and nature.

The location is perfect to reach Mateo park, the marina and downtown and minutes to many shopping centers and restaurants.

We highly recommended this property.Like us, you will find it hard to leave.

It was a great break from our winter as we spent all of March there.

The home is beautiful. The vista on the water is great. Enjoyed watching the ferries heading in and out of Nanaimo. The home is very well equipped with everything you might need. We will definitely want to stay here again the next time we come to visit.
