About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This brand new executive, two bedroom, two full bathroom vacation suite at Inn Of The Sea, feels like you are actually on a cruise ship, with a 270 degree view onto low bank, and open ocean. Upon arrival your senses are immediately enlivened with air that is fresh from the salty sea, and with wafts of wood smoke from warming fireplaces.

Designer furnished with granite countertops , wood cabinetry, skylights, top stainless steel appliances, amazing media centre, and heated floors, this penthouse offers you an upscale urban environment while enjoying the raw nature that surrounds you. From the moment you enter the suite you are stopped in your tracks with the stunning beauty seen out of each and every one of the giant picture windows. Each vista boasts of centuries old cedar and arbutus trees, expansive sky, and an emerald cove, and of course, the ocean. Watch the tide come and go, caressing the shore with pristine waters. It’s a snorkeler’s , hiker’s, kayaker’s and swimmer’s dream come true.

The majestic snow capped Vancouver Mountains are in the distance, and the ocean is on fire with each morning’s sunrise. This panoramic wonder is yours from the master bedroom, living room, kitchen and the private covered deck. It truly is a corner of heaven. Drift to deep sleep with the gentle lapping of ocean waves, and awake to glorious bird song. Let the soul quenching beauty of pure unadulterated nature blanket you in gratitude for being alive.

The Yellow Point area, with it’s banana belt weather, has long been acknowledged as a place of spiritual power. You will no doubt see why it has garnered such acclaim. If you are looking for the ultimate ocean side vacation, Paradise beckons...

Please note: If you are wanting to plan a family reunion, the owners of this penthouse beauty also own another property at Inn Of The Sea. It is ocean front and can sleep 6 people. Contact them for details on price and availability.

About Iris Quinn

My husband and I call this vacation home 'Paradise' because it truly is a masterpiece of natural beauty. We live and work in Vancouver, when we can't be in Paradise, we want to offer it those who appreciate spectacular ocean views and a quest for zen downtime. We welcome you, and we can promise that you will enjoy your stay immensely, and leave with reluctance. One sunrise and you're hooked!

Iris Quinn purchased this condo in 2010

Why Iris Quinn chose Cowichan Valley H

My husband spent many years of his childhood in Yellow Point. He would wander the beaches and hike the woods. I grew up by the ocean in Nova Scotia, so we are babies of the sea. Salt breezes and wood smoke feed our souls.

What makes this condo unique

I am a true foodie, so I have created a kitchen that any cook/chef would feel right at home in. The farmer's market, the fresh fish, the produce. What fun it is to plan a special meal, pour a glass of wine, and enjoy it overlooking the magnificent, ever changing, ocean. It just doesn't get any better then that.

Guestbook comments from the owner

At the risk of repeating what other have written in this guest book, wow pretty much sums it up. The view is incredible, and the accommodations are five star. We wish we could stay longer. We will most definitely be back.

Very charming penthouse apartment with view of the water. Quite comfortable and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Inn of the Sea on Vancouver Island. The Rental we stayed in had the most awesome view of the water and was very comfortable. It was perfectly located and very easy to travel across the island.

Iris Quinn, manager of the vacation rental, was very welcoming and helped to make our arrival on the island worry free.

We highly recommend this rental to anyone looking to get away and enjoy a relaxing week. There is plenty to do on the island and an awesome old English pub five minutes away.

Overall, a perfect getaway!!

Incredible views include, ocean, forests, snow capped mountains and more without leaving the condo.

  • 5 of 5

Walking in to the stunning views on all sides made the trip worthwhile. We loved this condo. Iris did a great job making her home inviting to all that entered. It was a great location for sightseeing and we took a couple of day trips around the island. As each day ended, we looked forward to "going home" to this island retreat.

Wonderful place, wonderful views

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at the oceanfront condo. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were equally clean and well-appointed. The kitchen had everything we could have needed for a long or short stay. The large windows and amazing views were astounding. The hot tub was a bit of a walk, and we didn't have bathrobes, but the seashore access, great location and soaker tubs more than made up for it. I could have stayed for another week, curled up with a good book or two! Thank you!

Waterfront condo with breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful condo for four nights in mid-March. It is located in a quiet condo development right on the waterfront - not far from Ladysmith, where we were visiting friends. The unit is on the third floor, overlooking the water - a corner condo with breathtaking views from every window. It was very clean, and equipped with anything that one might need. We were out and about, sightseeing on the Island, every day we were there - but if you were going to stay at the condo development in warmer weather and enjoy the pool and the shoreline, there is a beautiful kitchen for meal preparations and lots of room to enjoy the balcony, watch movies, enjoy the fireplace, etc.

The furnishings are very nice - the only things you

would need are any groceries/supplies as the complex is a little bit out of the way, and there is not a store right there - but groceries/liquor/nice restaurants are within a short drive.

We would highly recommend!
