This lovely, quaint cottage, originally built in the 1920s is nestled on a secluded South sloping half acre of waterfront property, conveniently located just 15 kilometers from downtown Victoria. Whether you are sitting on the dock enjoying the sunrise, lounging in the cozy front living room watching the bird life, or relaxing in the adarondak chairs on the front lawn; every aspect of the cottage is close to nature and provides a unique opportunity to enjoy the very best of what the unspoiled beautiful West Coast of British Columbia has to offer. Watch a tremendous array of wildlife, including resident swans nesting on the lagoon shore, river otters eating their crab dinner on the dock, and even the occasional whale passing in the distance.
The peaceful and serene lagoon is a designated bird sanctuary which is host to a vast variety of bird species including eagles, blue herons, king fishers, with seasonal visits from osprey, bufflehead ducks and so many more.
Just a few steps down a treed lane you will find 6 km of walking beach with views of the city skyline framed by Mount Baker.
Beachwood cottage is fully furnished, impeccably clean, independent accommodation, with full kitchen and bathroom facilities. The 750 square foot cottage is the only dwelling on the property. It offers one bedroom with french doors opening to the private yard. A daybed located in the front room can sleep an extra guest, or is simply a lovely place for an afternoon nap.+ More
