Cottage is perfect for a short or long stay. Located just steps from the beach. We enjoyed long walks on the beach checking the rock pools for tiny creatures and watching the eagles. It is a perfect place to use as a base to go off and explore for the day and come home and relax and watch incredible sunsets or perhaps dip your feet in the water. Everything you need is here and Sandy and Andy couldn’t have been kinder in making sure we knew all the places of interest for shopping, sightseeing etc. We certainly hope to return sometime. Thanks Sandy and Andy
We loved everything about Sandy and Andy’s beach house! They immediately made us feel welcomed and made sure that we had everything we needed for a wonderful stay. The cottage is immaculate and its location is fantastic. As others have said, falling asleep to the sound of the ocean waves crashing outside your windows is truly special. One of the most magical parts of our trip was beachcombing just steps away from the cottage. It is a memory we will never forget! Our original plan had been to drive to Ucluelet for one day but once we realized how much there was to do in the area, we stayed put and are so glad we did. If you are considering staying in the area, look no further as Eagle’s Aerie as it is a true gem and one that doesn’t come along every day. We are already trying to figure out a way to come back. It is just that amazing. Thanks Sandy and Andy for providing such a relaxing, comfortable place to call home for a few days!
Sandy was the most helpful and gracious host, greeting us in the beautifully landscaped yard and then spending quite a bit of time showing us about the cottage and explaining how to use the various conveniences. She provided an abundance of the information and materials dealing with Qualicum Beach, its history and recreational opportunities.
The cottage itself was beautifully appointed and tastefully decorated, having all possible conveniences and an amazing location right next to the beach and the beautiful Georgia Straits. Sleeping was a joy with the gentle sound of the surf right outside our window and the excellent mattress with its down comforter. We would have preferred to have had a king bed, but the superb quality of the mattress they did have provided an outstanding rest.
As a child, I visited Qualicum Beach with my parents in the 50's, so this was a nostalgic, wonderful homecoming as it were.
Thank you, Andy and Sandy, for a most enjoyable and refreshing stay at your beautiful beach cottage.
We had a great stay at Andy and Sandy's cottage. Ideal location , with 7-10 mins drive to stores nearby. Steps away (in literal sense) from the beach. Privacy of the cottage with ample space outside, even if you don't feel like dipping your feet on the beach. Cottage is equipped with everything. Last but not least, Sandy is a great host. The day we arrived, she gave us the tour of the place, along with great tips about the surrounding and places to go. It was a memorable stay for us which ended with Sandy giving us a personalized note. It was a true 'home, away from home' experience for us! I have already recommended this Place to a couple of my friends, so Sandy, you'll have a busy next summer :)
Our little family of four had a wonderful week long vacation at this cottage! The location couldn't be better- only steps to the beach and a very quiet and private neighbourhood! We spent hours beach combing, splashing and even a quick kayak down the beach at sunset! Our babes are 5 and 3 and the beach was great entertainment with warm tide pools and interesting sea creatures.
Our hosts were very thoughtful- Sandy left us a lot of local and further afield information if we wanted to leave Heaven for a few hours. She even sent us family photos she snapped for us!
The cottage was nicely appointed- perfect for us! The bedroom was large enough that we could put an air mattress beside the bed for the babes and have the sitting area free to visit. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook. It was clean and bright and airy- we didn't want to leave!
Do yourself a favour and book this vacation rental! You won't regret it!
We had an absolutely amazing time staying at Eagle's Aerie! The cottage had everything we needed and was very comfortable. The beach is just steps from the cottage and our two young boys were in heaven combing the sand for critters and playing in the very warm water. We really didn't need to leave but the location was close to lots of great parks and we even made a day trip over to Tofino. Sandy and Andy were the most friendly, warm and helpful hosts. They really know the area and gave us lots of great suggestions and tips. Thank you so much for having us! We sure hope to return next summer!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our week with Sandy and Andy. Wonderful hosts and a very comfortable cottage with all the mod cons you could need.
Sandy thanks so much for your advice on places to go and things to do. And thanks for sharing your beautiful garden with us.
The sea was so close, it was literally a few steps around the back of the cottage. Glorious!
