Gulf Island Ocean View Estate

Luxury High Bank Oceanfront

Sorry, this property is no longer active.

We are very sorry but you have arrived at a property listing that is not currently active for bookings. Please return to the main page to continue your search for your ideal property.

Picture yourself relaxing in a 4500 sq-ft luxury home, located on the waterfront with spectacular views of Georgia Straight, Howe sound and the snow peaked coastal mountains. Imagine the long driveway lined by cherry blossoms leading to the house through 5 acres of manicured lawns and carefully kept gardens. Don't be surprised if you have to stop, allowing some of the deer that frequent the property to move out of your way. Think of the tranquility and privacy of this getaway setting, nestled between the towering cedar and fir trees that shield and protect you on both sides of the property.

Once inside, the gourmet kitchen, the richly appointed interior and impeccable furnishings will immediately take your breath away With massive stainless steel appliances and seemingly miles of tiled countertops, a big oak-topped island and beautiful cabinetry, the fully-equipped kitchen is a joy! The guys will love the big deluxe stainless BBQ, located on the patio just outside the kitchen. Four sets of glass doors leading to the oceanfront patio virtually ensure that you can enjoy the view from every couch, chair or comfortable seat in the living or dining room. If you love to curl up with a book, then the cozy wingback chairs and the warmth of the living room fireplace are a dream come true. As you ascend to the second floor, you will be amazed by the artwork, including the towering mermaids who watch over you as you climb.

Previously a 5-star B&B, the house has four individually styled bedrooms, each complete with fireplace and ensuite bathroom. The ensuites located within the three upstairs bedrooms include shower, Jacuzzi tub and incredible ocean views. The bedroom on the main floor also includes a fireplace, ensuite with regular tub and shower, as well as access to its own private patio overlooking the ocean. With two king and two queen-sized beds, there is room for the entire family. Should additional sleeping space be necessary, an additional queen sized pullout couch is available in the den downstairs. Also in the den, you will find a desk with computer and internet, and a large comfy chair in addition to the pull out couch. The kids will enjoy the board games, large flat-screen television, DVD / VHS machine and movie library, as well as X-Box machine and games, which are all located in the den. The door from the den leads to an additional patio with a table, chairs and a 7-man outdoor hot tub. The up-stairs family room is extremely cozy, lined with beautiful built-in mahogany bookcases and desk, with more of those amazing ocean views. The family room also includes an additional television, DVD player and wet-bar with fridge. Finally, the fully equipped laundry facilities located on the second floor will allow you to clean any clothes necessary during your stay.

In terms of local amenities, Gabriola Island has everything a vacationer could need. At Folklife Village near Descanso Bay and also at Silva Bay, you will find a full sized grocery store, liquor stores, a pharmacy, clothing boutiques, a bank, hardware stores, excellent restaurants, a spa, and several shops where the fabulous local art can be viewed or purchased. For those nautically minded, rental kayaking, sailing and scuba diving are all available on Gabriola. For those wishing to get a little exercise, take advantage of Gabriola's nine-hole golf course, explore the beautiful beaches or take-in the scenery walking or biking the system of wilderness trails.

Gabriola Island is served by a regular ferry service with departures to and from the island occurring every hour from early in the morning until late at night. The ferry carries passengers and approximately 75 automobiles from the ferry terminal located in downtown Nanaimo, directly to Descanso Bay on Gabriola in 15-20 minutes. Once you reach Gabriola, a pleasant 10-minute drive up North road will see you arriving at the estate.

For those who cant avoid the call of business for the entire stay, there is regular seaplane service that connects Gabriola to Vancouver three times daily departing from Silva Bay located less than 5 km away. If relaxation or excitement means a trip to the mall, then a short trip back to Nanaimo Vancouver Islands shopping Mecca, will be for you.

I don't normally respond to survey but this property exceeded our expectations so much I felt compelled to let you know how much we appreciated our stay.

The home and grounds were clean, spacious, well-quipped and homey. We felt instantly at home and relaxed as we read books and looked out over the ocean, The grounds were lovely and the beds/sheets were better than any high-end hotel we've stayed at! We cooked a lot of meals in the large wall-equipped kitchen and dined in the dining room over looking the ocean. The decorating was very much to our taste and reminded us of our home. It was such a comfortable stay that our daughter asked to spend her 15th birthday this summer at the house and we had a nice celebration for her on August 16.

This rental was one of the best places we have ever stayed and I wonder if you could pass these comments and appreciation on to the owners.
