Departure Bay Beach House, Nanaimo, BC

Fall asleep to the sound of waves. Stroll the beach looking for sea treasures. Listen to the call of shorebirds. Watch our resident otters play at water's edge. Wander. Read. Snooze on the deck. Storm watch. Connect with family and friends. Departure Bay Beach House gives you all this and more. It commands a premiere location on a long swath of "walk-on" beach in Departure Bay, Nanaimo, Vancouver Island.

Everything has been taken into consideration in the design of this modern executive home. It is 2,900 square feet of light-filled space, with sweeping views of Departure Bay and the far off Coastal Mountain Range. Watch ferries and seaplanes come and go, eagles soar overhead and seals and otters playing off the front patio. The house faces east, so you will wake to magnificent sunrises that flood the house with light through floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows.

This spacious 4-bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms home (maximum of 8 guests) is West Coast beach living at its best. The light-infused home boasts large open principal rooms, a well-equipped chef’s kitchen, floor-to-ceiling glass windows on two levels, 2 gas fireplaces, a large patio on the lower level, an oceanfront deck on the upper level, and a large private deck on the west side of the house for warm sunny afternoons when the sun has moved around the house. There is private parking for 2 cars in the driveway. The main level of the house has been designed for “handicap access” and one of the master bedrooms (there are 2 masters in the house) is on the main level. There is easy access for kayak and canoe launching at the house, and numerous boat ramps within a 2-kilometre radius.

An Ideal Waterfront Location

Departure Bay is a short distance from shopping and dining with a number of restaurants within walking distance of the house. Nanaimo is a thriving community of parks, beaches, charming eclectic shops, waterfront walks, marinas and myriad dining choices from fine to casual, plus all the modern convenience needed for an enjoyable stay. These include grocery stores, gas stations, libraries, theatres, restaurants and delis, specialty food shops, spas, doctors and dentists, massage therapists and beauty salons.
