Welcome to The Brentwood Bay Getwaway, our 4 bedroom, 3 full bathroom, open concept, warm and cozy farmhouse style family abode. Here you will find a uniquely decorated, easy living and entertaining space. A large open kitchen allows many hands to help with the afternoon barbecue preparation on the sunny rear deck, equipped with all necessary tools, along with an outdoor dining table and sitting area. Close by in the spacious backyard there is a propane fire pit with seating for the whole family. A good sized grassy area allows lots of space for the kids and dogs to play. There is even an outdoor shower for the kids when back from the beach, a short 5 minute walk from home.
Inside you will find 2 bedrooms with queen beds (one en suite), 1 with a double bed and an attached room (perfect for the kids) with a single daybed and cot. All 3 bathrooms equipped with a shower and one with a full sized tub. The laundry room has a brand new front loading washer and dryer with a folding table, iron and board. Following your dinner on the harvest table built for 10, the comfortable living room is the perfect place to put your feet up after your busy day visiting all the nearby attractions. Upstairs there is a bonus room with a great space for watching movies on a quiet night or card and board games, pool or darts for a night of family fun!

We are active, professional, 40-something (wink, wink) long time Brentwood Bay residents who could not boast enough about where we live. This is a family friendly community with so much to offer. Nearby farmers produce stands and markets, pubs and restaurants, coffee houses, paddling, hiking, nature sanctuaries, local markets and beaches are just some of the places we visit on a daily basis. On Wednesday nights we visit a local park for "Music in the Park" featuring local artists, playing music for all ages to enjoy! Your furry friend is also welcome, our 2 tag along at every opportunity (they would never let us go without them!). Food and music in an outdoor setting is a perfect way to spend the evening. Sidney (a 10 minute drive) has an outdoor market on Thursday evenings with dozens of local vendors, live music and food kiosks. We have also spent a lot of time at Butchart Gardens, watching the incredible fireworks show on Saturday nights and concerts, such as Colin James, Spirit of the West and Jann Arden, at the Amphitheater.
It is all a MUST SEE!
If you are an avid cyclist, there are scenic road cycling routes as well as popular mountain biking trails nearby. We spend a large amount of our time on these beautiful trails, that also double as a wonderful area for the family to hike and explore.
Downtown is only a 20-30 minute drive away. The Mill Bay Ferry a 2 minute drive, is located beside the Brentwood Bay Lodge and Spa. The Victoria Airport is a 10 minute drive and BC Ferries to the mainland (1hr 35min ride), 15 minutes.
