Departure Bay Beach House | Seaview Beach House

Exterior Amenities

Surrounded by hedging and fencing on three sides, the house is private and secure and is nestled at the end of a laneway, directly on the ocean. Seaview Beach House is pure "British Columbia West Coast" with views for kilometers of ocean and mountain, sunrise to sunset.

The house is located on well-groomed grounds maintained by a year-round gardener. The property is drenched in sun, with views of ocean and mountains and the ever changing comings and goings of ferries and sea planes, beach walkers, kayaks, fishing boats, plus otters, seals, hawks and eagles. There are stairs leading off of the front deck directly onto the beach. There is a park and recreation area located one street away from the house.
