About the neighborhood
Fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing and sea birds calling. Stroll the beach directly in front of the house looking for shells and sea treasures. Watch our resident otters play at water's edge. Spend endless hours watching eagles soar, seals fishing, the ferries coming and going, sea planes overhead and myriad shorebirds looking for dinner. Wander, swim, read, stroll, kayak, storm watch, sleep in a deck chair, relax over dinner, BBQ a fresh salmon; this is British Columbia oceanfront at its best! This modern well-equipped home has everything you will need for a relaxing, memorable vacation.
Getting around
We recommend a car for this location in Nanaimo BC. While there is public transportation about 200 meters from the house via city bus, a car is the easiest for shopping and exploring.
