Executive Studio with private entrance and ocean view available for short-term rental. We are located directly across from Newcastle Island - an island park, kayak rentals and a short walk to ferries. A lovely stroll on the ocean walkway brings you to our quaint downtown with restaurants and funky shops. Venture to a variety of malls and groceries stores also within walking distance from your home away from home. One short block to public transit. Take the float plane and visit downtown Vancouver for a day or rent a car and drive to the wilderness and wild waves of the west coast of Vancouver Island. Drive up island for more beaches, unique communities or sit on the lower covered deck and enjoy the view of passing boats in the channel while drinking your morning coffee.

Your cozy accommodations are just steps from the ocean, kayak rentals, funky shops, quaint downtown, shops and malls, an island park.
