Seaview Beach House, Nanaimo, BC

Our extensively upgraded fully renovated private waterfront residence sits on a long swath of "walk-on" oceanfront beach in Departure Bay, in Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island.

Nestled at the end of a laneway and fronting onto the beach, this 2,100 square foot home has sweeping views of Departure Bay and the far off Coastal Mountain Range. Watch ferries and seaplanes come and go, eagles soar overhead and seals and otters playing off the front deck. The house faces east, so you will wake to magnificent sunrises that flood the house with light through floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows.

The spacious 3-bedroom, 3- full bathroom home (maximum of 6 guests) is West Coast living at its best. Renovated in 2009, with a further large scale upgrade in 2012/2013, the light-infused home boasts large open principal rooms, a well-equipped kitchen, floor-to-ceiling glass windows on two levels, a real wood-burning fireplace, Wi-Fi broadband high speed Internet, a large oceanfront cedar wrap-around deck, skylights, and parking for two vehicles in a private driveway. There is easy access for kayak and canoe launching at the house, and numerous boat ramps within a 2-kilometre radius.

Departure Bay is a short distance from shopping and dining with a number of restaurants within walking distance of the house.
