About Brent Thorkelson

Both my wife and I are healthcare professionals in Alberta. When our son was just 6 we set out on an adventure to build our dream home in Millarville, near the Rocky Mountains. After 4 years of living in a 1975 mobile home we had completed (ourselves) a small timber frame house which is where we live today. My wife's passions include relaxing with gardening and pottery, while mine revolve more around the adrenaline side of linking motor sports with raising money for Kids Cancer Research through my 'Hands Together for a Cure' initiative.

With our hectic work schedules, our family of three enjoy the privacy and natural beauty of living in the country. It is really our Alberta Oasis.

Brent Thorkelson purchased this house in 2014

Why Brent Thorkelson chose Qualicum Beach

For the past nine summers we have packed up our truck and camper to venture to the beauty of Vancouver Island. The Qualicum area is one of many places we have found in our travels that offer both relaxation and fun activities when you feel the need to be adventurous.

Ocean Oasis is the ideal blend of both. Situated in the quiet gated community of Qualicum Landing, Ocean Oasis offers up this and more in a modern well built cottage style house.

Winter Snowbird Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent three months, Dec. Jan. Feb., at Ocean Oasis. It was a great place to stay to get away from Winnipeg's freezing temperatures. The cottage is clean with a beautiful updated kitchen that made cooking a joy...thanks for the great spice drawer! We saw seals, dolphins just a minutes walk to the Georgia Straight. We toured the Island from Tofino to Campbell River, Quadra Island and hiked daily on the most amazing beautiful trails just a short drive from the cottage. Golf was also minures away and the choice of restaurants endless. Thank you Brent and Lenora for being such caring hosts and ensuring our stay was comfortable.

Owner's Response: Mary and Rich. It was an absolute pleasure having you stay at our Ocean Oasis. When we were making the preliminary arrangements for your stay, you had assured us that you would treat our home as if it were your own. You certainly did, as attested by our cleaning staff. You both were wonderful and we're glad you made it back home safely. Brent and Lenora

Awesome Stay!!!

  • 4 of 5

My Family along with my best friend and her family (4 adults & 4 young boys) had the best time during our stay at your house in August 2017!!! Everything was just perfect, wish we could have stayed longer. We look forward to returning one day

Only thing we were wishing was for a sandy beach but it was only a short drive away

The name says it all!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

There are no better words to describe other than "Ocean Oasis", truly a beautiful place to stay. It is an annual ritual that my family and I spend a week of our summer on Vancouver island for the past 9 years and this is the first time we stay at Brent and Lenora's place; by far, this is one of the best place we have stayed. The cabin is very well equipped and we can tell Brent and Lenora has put a lot of through to make sure their guests feels right at home. Will certainly come back to this spot again!!
