Property Description

Humming Bird Hideaway is a comfortable one bedroom guest suite with private bathroom, a little patio and its own entrance. A quiet and peaceful getaway to relax and enjoy time away from your daily routine and enjoy the sounds of nature swirling and buzzing around you. The ocean laps at the bottom of the garden where hammocks and a gazebo with a barbecue are there to enjoy.

A perfect and serene spot to enjoy the comings and goings of sea and wildlife, and the magical setting sun of Deep Bay.

A brand new cozy private guest suite, a delightful little holiday hideaway.

Humming Bird Hideaway, a one bedroom guest suite with a private bathroom and its own entrance is available for a peaceful and relaxing get away. The suite comes equipped with a luxurious posture-pedic queen size bed, a 40” TV, Wi-Fi, small fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, kettle, utensils, plates and glasses, all you need for simple meals and snacks. There is a little patio where one can enjoy a cup of morning tea or coffee and watch the hummingbirds dive bomb for their morning food. At the bottom of the garden where the ocean meets the lawn there is a hammock and a gazebo with a barbecue. The areas resident fish eagles, with their musical and mystical calling sit up in the giant Sitka spruce tree which graces our garden creating the melodies of the bay while watching out for their prey. Deep Bay is decorated by brightly colored rainbows & spectacular sunsets which can be enjoyed while relaxing and absorbing the comings and goings of Deep Bay Harbor.

This sweet little hideaway on Vancouver Island is about a 45-minute drive north from the Nanaimo ferry and about 30 minutes south from Comox airport. Deep Bay is in an area known as Lighthouse Country where you can enjoy many activities in and around the area, whether it is spring, summer, fall or winter.

There is easy access to launch your kayaks, row boats, canoes and/or paddle boards. Next door is a boat launch and a marina for any larger boats, or maybe you will arrive by boat. Just across the bay is our sandy beach playground that triples in size depending on the tidal-moon cycle. There you can enjoy swimming, beach-combing, photography, painting, or just chilling with a good book. The area is famous for wild oysters and clams, so don’t forget your fishing license so you can have fun digging for your dinner. Close by and a pleasant walk leads to Vancouver Island University’s Deep Bay Marine Field Station, where you can touch the local sea life and marvel at their Grey Whale exhibit. Fishing for salmon & cod is but a few steps away where, if you don’t have a boat there are charters to take you out. You have enchanting walking/hiking & biking trails close by to discovery. Check out the web site: - "vancouverislandwalkhikebike" for some details on where to find these trails. A visit to the famous Horne Lake Caves is a half-hour drive inland. The Pacific Rain-forest Adventure Tours located in Parksville is a delightful way to learn and explore about this magical island. Numerous unique and artistic treasure stores a-wait when you take an extravaganza trip into Bowser, Coombs, & Qualicum Beach. Heading north and guarding over us all is majestic Mount Washington where hikers, bikers and photographers are free to wander her range when her snow cloak has melted; and winter months, you have all the winter delights to enjoy. At the end of the day, right next door is our local licensed cafe. Enjoy an early morning or evening stroll around our marina docks as fishermen & sailors alike busy themselves with their tasks. The ever hopeful seals and otters love hanging around in hopes of easy morsels.

With gentle waves lapping at the bottom of the garden and vibrant mesmerizing sunsets setting for the day, under the trees lie hammocks allowing for quiet contemplation and reflection. As darkness descends, clear skies allow the heavens to twinkle and wink at us. As Deep Bay quietens, and depending on the fire hazard, an open pit fire can be enjoyed while listening to the sounds around you of wildlife calling, and the echo of conversations carried on the wind. Just a little taste of what can be enjoyed while staying at Humming Bird Hideaway in Deep Bay.

Your guest suite with its own secure private entrance is attached to our home. You have your own parking spot off the road. There is a path down to the ocean where the hammock, gazebo, barbecue and fire-pit are; this is where you can launch your kayak, canoe or paddle board. Depending on the fire risk you are welcome to use the fire pit, wood is provided.

We respect your space and privacy in our quiet home, but we are happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Quiet, Cozy and Awesome location

This one bedroom unit was perfect for me and my 6 year old son to spend a few days fishing and taking in the sights of Deep Bay. Very well built with all the needed extras like Wifi, Big TV, very comfy bed. Thanks we had a great time! and would use again. Ron & Ledger

Relaxing and comfortable

Deep bay is beautiful, quiet and a great place for kayaking. Eagles, herons, king fishers and seals inhabit the area. Great hosts!
