Looking for spectacular ocean and mountain views, tranquility and luxurious comfort? Then you've found it all in this beautiful ocean front home on a half acre, half way between Courtenay and Campbell River on Vancouver Island.

The Georgia Strait and Coastal Mountain views are the stars that soothe the soul but supporting acts include Bald Eagles hunting and feeding atop the waterfront trees, Herons fishing on the beach, woodpeckers, hummingbirds, deer and so much more. There is a private water side deck with patio furniture and a propane fire table, sun deck with a BBQ and a patio set at the front of the house, an oceanfront fire pit when seasonally allowed, a small boat ramp and beach access. The landscaping is mature, natural and lovely. The beach at the property is a rock beach but the sandy beach is easily accessed by walking 5 to 10 minutes along the water's edge to Miracle Beach Provincial Park.

The 2 story home is very private and in a quiet residential area. The main floor living, dining, kitchen area is an open concept design in order to maximize the views. There are hardwood floors and heated tiles throughout the main floor and upgraded stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops throughout.

There is also an office area upstairs with wireless internet access that can also be accessed throughout the rest of the house. The kids will also love the secret play areas under the eaves in their twin bedroom. They may also like the TV and video game console for rainy days or when the adults want some quiet time to themselves. There is a selection of outdoor and indoor games, books, magazines, videos and music, as well as some local tourism brochures.

Great Escape at Miracle Beach is a lovely property in a wonderful location. The views are breath-taking in all weathers. A particular highlight was sitting at the end of the garden, gin and tonic in hand watching the sun set over the Strait of Georgia. Spectacular.

The reason that I did not give the accommodation an excellent rating is the shortage of dining chairs, only 4 in a property that sleeps 6 people, and the lack of bedside lamps.

Overall the property is very comfortable and the owners have clearly decorated and furnished to a very high standard. It was immaculately clean on arrival and our greeter was helpful, courteous and welcoming. As was Liz, our reservation agent.

One other point, the comprehensive guide to everything that we might need to know about the house was reassuring and a very good idea which other rental owners might like to copy.

Given the chance, I would go back tomorrow. Many thanks for a memorable holiday.

I've already recommended EMR Vacation Rentals to a friend who wants to vacation in the Vancouver Island area next year, so enjoy the referrals as a result of your good work! Heather Greenless was extremely competent, responsive and helpful.

The vacation rental was fairly new, so it was lacking a few of the comforts I would expect it to have. We made some recommendations to the owners in their registry book. The beds were not all that comfortable and were severely lacking in quality bedding - shortage of pillows, blankets, etc. As a result, my sleep quality was not very good. The housekeeping service did a poor job of cleaning the house in between guests, as I found a master bed with wrinkled sheets and long hairs all over them. The master toilet was also not cleaned, which was not a pleasant thing to have as a first impression. Please do address this as it is not acceptable. I was not impressed with the greeter, who seemed rushed and did not want to interact much. He also made several excuses as to why there was a less than clean master bed and bath, which did not make sense.

As far as the house itself goes, we could not have been happier with the location. What a gorgeous view from the back yard! I was thrilled with the peacefulness and ease of staying there. The kids had a wonderful time going to the beach. The appliances in the kitchen were top notch, as well as the washer/dryer and HVAC system. Great quality and super renovation. Thanks for the memories.

EMR Response

We had a wonderful time. Wish the weather had been warmer. We had to supply some things in the kitchen that I bought and brought home. Roaster, extra large bowls, PS games for the kids. There was 7 of us and we found that the kitchen table was small. One adult ate in the front room. We do realize the home was supposed to be for 6 people and there was room for 4 at the table and 2 at the island. We also wish the barbeque was larger. The home was beautiful, spotless, and homey. We love the million dollar view. The grand kids had never seen the ocean and it was a great experience for all of us. Please thank the owners for being so gracious in letting strangers stay at their home. The property was beautiful.

We will be looking at something out in the Shuswap area for next summer. If you have any property there please let us know. Also we wish to thank Heather so much for all of her professional, courteous, friendly and helpful manners both on the phone and with her emails. She is a wonderful employee and as I am a supervisor where I am employed I truly acknowledge her assistance and great work ethic. Thank you Heather. We look forward to hearing from you again. Carol and John
