Luxurious, modern, spacious (over 1900 square feet) three-bedroom, two-bathroom home beside the ocean. It's just 20 seconds from our verandah to a private beach, with wonderful views of a sweeping bay in the Georgia Strait, Denman and Hornby Islands from almost every room.

The master bedroom has a queen bed, ocean views, a private balcony, and full ensuite bathroom with a soaker tub and a separate shower. The second ocean view bedroom downstairs has a king bed that can separate into two super twins. The third bedroom has a double and a twin bed. All beds have quality linens.

The house is equipped with all the comforts of home including: gourmet kitchen, air-conditioning, high-speed and wireless internet, air-tight wood fireplace, large screen TV, Cable/DVD player/VCR/stereo, washer/dryer, and telephone (free local calls). There is a family room with a card table, books, games and puzzles, office space and exercise equipment.

Relax on the wide front verandah and enjoy the fenced garden with glorious views of the beach, a barbeque and a huge log picnic table for alfresco meals. Stroll along the beach and watch the wildlife, including seals, sea lions, whales, otters, and eagles, or harvest oysters and clams from our beach for dinner.

Bowser Beach House is a great base for a family vacation. The house is on a large bay facing Hornby and Denman Islands and you can walk and walk in either direction. It is a large, private, peaceful beach, only for the few houses on the bay. We are a quick and easy drive to more beaches: Qualicum Beach is 15 minutes and Parksville is 20 minutes away, and there are beautiful provincial parks with lakes, beaches and picnic areas within a few minutes drive of the house. Horne Lake Provincial Park, with its amazing caves and outdoor recreation activities is only a 10 minute drive away. There are ocean kayaks for rent in Deep Bay, 5 minutes' drive from the house.

The friendly village of Bowser is a 5 minute walk up the hill, and it has a fully stocked small supermarket with a wonderful on-site bakery, a grocery store, post office, coffee shop, gas station, hardware store, liquor store, a video/DVD rental, and even a library for that vacation reading. More shopping, country markets, organic eggs and meats, restaurants and pubs are just down the road.

Bowser Beach House is a wonderful base for a golfing vacation. There are several top class courses within a few minutes' drive of the house.

From December to March, Bowser Beach House is a perfect base for a family ski vacation at Mount Washington ski resort, with skiing, snowboarding and cross-country. Skiers have an easy 35 minute drive to the mountain top, and non-skiers have a relaxing base close to lots of other activities.

Quiet and secluded beach house


Such a wonderful relaxing vacation. A small family reunion with my brother and sister. The house was clean and very nicely furnished.

Everything you could want


Beautiful location just steps from the beach and a comfortable and well-equipped house. It's easy to get to from the highway but in a secluded spot tucked away down a little lane with just a handful of other houses. We saw hummingbirds, deer, eagles, seals and an otter all from the house - a really beautiful place.
