Overview

Photos and Description of the Qualicum Beach vacation house rental

4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

A Visitor cannot miss the astonishingly beautiful mosaic that surrounds the front entrance. This exquisite signed, original stonework in quartz, marble and slate depicts a blue heron in flight towards the 8 foot front doors, lying within the sheltering branches of an arbutus tree- a species indigenous to southern Vancouver Island. It welcomes the curious to come closer.

The 3471 -square -foot home with 5 bedrooms and 4 baths occupies a 90'x150' foot property , backing on to the first hole of the beautiful Eaglecrest Golf Club in the Eaglecrest district of quaint Qualicum Beach, BC, Canada. This lovely , treed and well manicured golf course serves as a visual and actual extension of your back yard. The south-facing, relaxing rear patio allows sunshine to be enjoyed year-round. A special gas barbeque and serving area has been built. Privacy, tranquility. Evenings throughout the year become special when you find yourself soaking with friends under star-lit skies – favorite beverage in hand, in the 7-person Jacuzzi spa . Located across the street from one of Canada's most beautiful sand beaches helps pass the busy days and allow your dreams and imagination to flourish. And views from the front of the home include a professionally designed entry yard with the Strait of Georgia and Coastal Mountains serving as a background to the 2-million-dollar landscaped corridor leading to the Beach in the new Bluffs development.

In the impressive entrance foyer, a soaring glass roof naturally illuminates the warm tones of bold, exposed wooden beams that form the roofing support structure. The 16 -foot -ceiling allows light to reflect and deflect to the lower walls and floor. This indirect lighting complements the foyer’s stunning centrepiece: a deeply patterned, multi-hued slab of Brazilian granite hand- set into the maple hardwood floors.

You will probably notice other elements not always found in better executive homes, such as 8” baseboard moldings, 6” ceiling cove moldings throughout, custom maple floor- heating inset covers , a $30,000 surround sound – with speakers over the patio and hot tub, and home theatre system, including 2 wall-mounted flat-screen TV's, custom -designed fireplaces in the Great Room and Master Bedroom, designer wool broadloom in 3 bedrooms on the South Wing, cooling ceiling fans in 4 bedrooms, 2 way -tilt Low E German-made windows which don't require maintenance. The storage closets are ample, with 10-foot shelving and custom over-height doors.

Throughout the home you will find an interesting control of natural light through the use of glass- panelled hallway doors with beautifully etched designs, and clear glass transoms over the door frames. This combination of natural and artificial lighting, carefully chosen earth tones on the walls and judicious placement of mirrors allows the owners to display an extensive collection of original oil paintings, prints, wall sculptures and other unique artwork. The owners are in the Interior Design Trade and have paid particular attention to the many details which make this vacation home so special and unique.

The open plan Great Room, which combines a dining area, gourmet kitchen, bar and family room overlooks a large back patio and the golf course beyond. A dramatic glass sheet chandelier over the round dining room table bears glass flowers by Seattle artist Susan Guterman, reminiscent of Dale Chihuly’s fabulous glass ceiling in the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.

For the chef in the family the open concept gourmet kitchen is a central focus of the house. The space features built-in dual -stacked wall ovens, a side-by-side freezer-fridge, a 2- drawer dishwasher and a microwave oven by Kitchen Aid. There is ample storage in cupboards and drawers (with soft push closers) that surround the appliances, as well as in a big pantry behind etched-glass doors and glass-fronted display cabinets above the cupboards. The glass cabinets also have polished half-inch thick glass shelving . The custom kitchen cabinets soar all the way to the 10-foot ceilings . Elegant double maple ceiling moldings and numerous halogen spot lights help complete the décor.

The kitchen also features a wine cooler under the wide granite counter, top-of-the-line five- burner Gaggenau gas cooktop, and wall-mounted Gaggenau coffee,

espresso, and cappuccino maker with a self-contained supply of coffee. The kitchen sink and faucet are German-made GROHE.

Bedrooms and offices lie in two separate wings on each side of the Great Room. The south wing holds a guest suite with its own three-piece ensuite, and two additional bedrooms, with separate walk-in closets that share a four piece ensuite. The guest suite hosts a modern steam shower, as well as a separate glassed entry door leading to a private sitting area , catching the morning sun. All the bathrooms utilize the latest wall-mounted water-conserving dual-flush toilets and hand bidets, while a powder room in the hallway connecting the two wings boasts what must be the ultimate experience in personal hygiene, a Toto Washlet. The south guest wing is completely self-contained, with its own furnace to provide in-floor heating, and its own stacking Inglis washer and dryer.

In the north wing, the master bedroom boasts an open floor plan which extends into the spectacular master ensuite, with its pedestal soaker-tub and a custom etched-glass shower stall. There is a custom gas fireplace as well as private small office . The massive, humidity-controlled walk-in closet offers rows of closets and cupboards to the ceilings- fronted with ribbed glass. It also incorporates an impressive double floor-to-ceiling shoe rack for the lady's extensive shoe collection. This master bedroom , self-contained wing also has its own furnace, LG Tromm washer and steam dryer and an executive office, with its own private and sheltered entrance.

This is a beautiful home for a relaxing shorter getaway or extended stay. The Qualicum Beach area is one of quaintest places in Canada with a host of interesting places to visit . The mild Mediterranean's climate is the best in our country and it's not unusual to see the trees start to bud as early as late January. The Qualicum town center is a short and convenient drive away

and boasts many village shops , and is truly a Village in every way.Its Saturday Farmers Market is a popular attraction as well., Starry nights may prompt your romantic spirit, or you may simply want to kick back and enjoy a good book or some fine music. Whatever you choose to do and enjoy, you will probably feel special and rejuvenated when you stay in this home.

Take a fascinating drive to the famous town Coombs, the lovely village nearby with goats walking on the sod roof, or to Courtenay along the coastal drive(really pretty ), where you can buy some famous Fanny Bay oysters for an evening meal.

In the afternoon, enjoy skiboarding at sandy Qualicum Beach, or take a trip into Parksville to enjoy its wonderful restaurants and green spaces. Everywhere you look there are wonderful views and relaxing drives. If you like, play a game of golf at one of the five nearby golf courses, play mini-golf with the kids, or go horseback riding. Take an hour's drive to ski on Mount Washington's nearby slopes, or take a day trip to visit famous Long Beach at Tofino, with its impressive Pacific storms.

A stay at this beautiful home may very well be one of your most memorable and pleasant experiences.

Macmillan Cathedral Grove- ancient huge douglas firs and cedars; Qualicum Museum; Englishman River Falls;Skiing at Mount Arrowsmith; Craig Bay outdoor museum close to Parksville on the Coastal highway is real special.

It's interesting to know that , when we first moved to the area in September 2003, my wife, who is a very strong psychic, had a special feeling about the area, in particular the area fronting Craig Bay, in the cove. She actually asked me not to walk on the grasses as it was sacred ground. It turns out that this is a 4,000-year-old Indian Burial Ground, and the Province of British Columbia, Canada has designated it as an Historic Site .

If you would require more intrigue before you book with us, simply call Ursula on her cell: 250-240-1823 to discuss the ancient spirits she has encountered on this site. It's quite remarkable , and will be mentioned in depth in her new book upcoming, with the tentative name: Spirituality Not for Sale.. My Life as A Psychic.

In general , Vancouver Island is a very special place, and the central Island area is our favorite!
