About the property

Family friendly, 2 bdrms, 2 bath ocean front cottage. Sleeps 6-8.

Qualicum Beachside Cottage, a comfortable old time seaside retreat, offers a perfect spot to escape for fun on the beach and in the ocean.

We’ve put a lot of thought into making sure our guests have all basics at hand that they might need for a fun get away. This cottage is comfortably decorated including a well equipped kitchen. Just pack your bags and come settle in. A first day breakfast basket is offered so that you can arrive knowing any early morning "munchers" are taken care of.

The living/dining and kitchen area fill an open space overlooking sundecks and the ocean. Relax in the comfy living room area which is a step down from the kitchen/dining space. Step out to a large deck through sliding doors to lounge in sunshine and relish the smells and sounds of the tidal waves, calling gulls, eagles, cranes, seals and otters as well as the occasional whale. The space features a TV with a large selection of channels. WIFI is provided.

The dining area has an extendable table that can seat up to 6-8 people. At the end of this room is a cozy corner with games, books, toys and a double futon sofa for any additional guests.

Master bedroom – Looking out over the ocean with sliding glass doors that open to a deck at the beachfront, this room has two double sized beds, night tables with reading lamps, small bureau, alcove closet and en-suite bathroom with a shower-tub combo.

Bedroom Two – This cozy room faces onto the private courtyard on the road side of the cottage, and has a queen sized bed, reading lamps, and closet.

Bathroom Two – Adjoining the main living space, the cottage’s second bathroom has a dedicated laundry space plus bathroom with shower.

Kitchen – This simple galley kitchen offers all you need while on your get away. Fully stocked with dishes, pots, pans, glasses, etc, it also has a microwave oven and dishwasher.

The cottage is equipped with games, books, toys, beach toys, beach towels, outside table and deck chairs overlooking the ocean, as well as a paved side yard with a basketball hoop. Wander the beach, play in the surf, then spray off the sand under the outdoor shower. For an old fashioned treat, ( possibly one your kids have never seen or used?) a laundry line on the ocean side allows you to dry your towels and clothes in the seaside breeze.

While this Qualicum Cottage, like most others in the area, sits close to the road, it remains quiet inside with little traffic noise, and when enjoying the beach front, the road traffic is not an issue at all.

There is ample parking on site for an RV or camper.

The beach directly in front of the cottage is a mixture of rocks, sand and driftwood, with interesting tidal pools tucked away. There is a swimming hole right outside that keeps it's water even in low tide and often is found with kids floating and playing about in it during the hot summer months. Just a 5 minute walk down the beach and around the corner gets you onto the long stretch of soft sandy beach.

Restaurants, corner grocery stores as well a paddle board and surf rental store are all within walking distance of the cottage. Nature Golf and Water slides at Riverside Resort is a short walk away, and the Marshall-Stevenson Wildlife Sanctuary is along the same stretch of beach as the cottage.

Wonderful seaside cottage, front gate to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Magical! A comfortable older but very clean cottage...reminds me of going to camp as a kid, except now I had two bathrooms and a comfortable bed. As soon as we were unpacked, the kids ran out to the beach and played pirates from the top of a big rock. They jumped in the tidal waves and explored sea life for hours! Loved that! A really fun place to spent our three day holiday and everyone of us want to come back for a summer stay!

We loved the cottage. The decks were large and the chairs very comfy. It had everything we needed

My husband and I had a wonderful stay in Qualicum Beach. We went to a play, the market , dinner at the Bistro and a long walk on the beach. In the evening we sat on deck looking at the stars. Loved the sounds of the ocean at night. It exceeded my expectations. Would love to come back next year
