Columbia Beach House is a spacious and beautifully appointed oceanfront home located in a quiet neighborhood in Parksville BC on Vancouver Island. This distinctive single level, 3200 sq foot home offers 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large office with computer and printer, high speed WiFi internet, a gourmet kitchen with huge island and custom cherry cabinetry, living and dining rooms separated by a double-sided gas fireplace, laundry room, central vacuum, air conditioning, 2 car garage and large landscaped lot. The stunning ocean views can be enjoyed throughout the house from the master bedroom along with its ensuite bathroom and attached art studio, living room, dining room, breakfast room and kitchen.

Columbia Beach House is situated on a flat, extensively landscaped lot with 100 feet of walk-on beach front. The ocean side of the house features multiple patios, a gazebo and gas BBQ grill. From here you can see the mountains on both Vancouver Island and the mainland of BC, as well as the many islands dotting the Strait of Georgia. Wildlife is abundant where bald eagles and sea lions can be seen within view. Listen to seals bark and the calls of over 60 species of waterfowl, and with a little luck you may catch a glimpse of a killer whale passing by. As the day turns to evening, you can enjoy a breathtaking sunset and watch the fishing boats and cruise ships making their way through the sparkling ocean waters.

You will feel the tension ease the moment you walk through the doors of Columbia Beach House and catch your first glimpse of the panoramic ocean view. The breakfast room, dining room, living room and master bedroom all have double French doors leading out onto the patios, so regardless of whether you are waking up in the king size bed in the master bedroom, soaking in the jetted tub, finding inspiration in the art studio, enjoying your morning coffee in the breakfast sunroom, serving dinner for eight at the beautiful teak dining table, or relaxing with a good book by the dramatic floor-to-ceiling rock fireplace in the living room, you will be able to savor the spectacular view. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and an exquisite master bath complete with radiant heat in the slate floor and a no-step door-less shower. Suitable for family gatherings, the guest room has two double beds and the third bedroom has two sets of bunk beds that will delight children or adults alike with its cozy nautical theme. Sliding glass pocket doors open into a huge living/entertainment room in the center of the house. Heading towards the back of the house, you will find an enormous laundry room with tiled floors. The fenced yard can be accessed from the laundry room, the garage, or the fully tiled pet grooming room complete with a raised tub. Throughout the house you will find unique tile work, custom cabinetry, and many other unique and exceptional touches that make this a truly magnificent home.

Columbia Beach House is located in French Creek, BC on beautiful and picturesque Vancouver Island. Golfers will find 7 courses to choose from in the area. A short 5 km drive south will take you to Parksville where you will find all the services and amenities you will need. Expansive sandy beaches around Parksville have earned it the nickname Canada's Riviera and are host to the Canadian Open Sandcastle Competition every summer. Travel 5 km north to Qualicum Beach and explore its many galleries, shops and restaurants. The central island location is perfect for day trips to explore the natural grandeur of Vancouver Islands mountains, rain forests and coastline, experience the world's best salmon fishing, surf on the west coast at Long Beach, or explore the magic of Victoria.

Whether you are seeking a relaxing escape, a romantic getaway, a family gathering, or a home base for unlimited outdoor activities, Columbia Beach House will offer you unforgettable experience.

What Our Guests
Say About Columbia Beach House

Columbe beach

It was a super experience. We had six adults and two children and we all enjoyed our stay.

Doug and Joann D.

A Wonderful September

Our stay at Columbia Beach House was a great way to spend September! The location is amazing and made it easy to do day trips and still drop back to the house to explore the beach while the tide was out. A great way to spend time with your family!

summer 2018

Great location for a family gathering. Outside patios rather bare and would benefit with some outdoor sectionals and tables.

Sheila W.


Beautiful house, beautiful view, just the perfect experience! The home is located just a few steps from the beach, and is handicap accessible which was fantastic for my father. The home is also well-stocked, the owners have though of everything! Location is between Parksville and Qualicum Beach. Major grocery store within 5 min drive. Quiet neighbourhood - perfect location to explore the surrounding areas.

Breathtaking views

We came to have our wedding at the property. Small family and friends group. Perfect house for a wedding. House had everything we needed and so much more!!!!

Sandra S.

Amazing location

This house has anything you need for great vacation at the beach. It is well equipped, was very clean.
The views both at low and high tides are amazing!


Our family had an amazing stay at this vacation home. Everything was exactly as described and more! The views are stunning and the sunsets were gorgeous. We enjoyed watching bald eagles and sea lions and spent a lot of time exploring shells in the water. The location is fantastic, between Parksville and Qualicum Beach, and we were able to do many day trips to other sights on the island. Groceries were easy to get and we were not wanting for anything. The property management company was very easy to deal with and were available if we had any questions. We are already dreaming of our next vacation here!

Columbia Beach House

Wonderful quiet property . Spectacular ever-changing ocean front views with eagles, herons, sea lions & seals. Great kitchen, dining room and living room for entertaining. Visit the farmers market in Quallicum and Goats on the Roof in Coombs. The Francis Barkly day cruise out of Port Alberni to Tofino is memorable as are the fish & chips at Bare BonesPort Alberni. Endless opportunities for day trips to parks and beaches in the area.

May / June booking 2016

Rented property for 5 weeks May/June 2016. Excellent location and great for families. Our only disappointment was that the kitchen oven was not fully functional and even though we complained during the first week, the management company was unable to organise a replacement or get it fixed.

However, that said, we will definitely book this property again.

Derek R.

Beautiful House looking at ocean

The house was clean, lots of room for a large family, it was pet friendly. It was the ideal situation for my family and would like to hope that we could come to this house again.

Audrey and Denise H.

Extraordinary Ocean Frontage!

Property photos do not do this property justice! Although probably from the 90's the finishing quality is above average and well maintained. Very spacious with ocean view from every floor-to-ceiling window and direct access to miles of beach walking! Close to everything - but why would you want to leave!!!!!

West Coast Living at its Best!

Relaxing spring get away in a wonderful location. Beautiful view of the beach! The golfing was great. Enjoyed the restaurants, pubs and shopping. People were very friendly and helpful. Thankyou EMR and thankyou to the owners for sharing such a wonderful house!

Darcy and Valerie C.

Awesome - awesome - awesome!!

We walked in to a beautiful home, extra super clean with a view to die for! Very accomodating home for the four of us. Centrally located to lots of activities and beautiful drives. Our greeter was very accommodating and full of information to make our stay the best ever. The whole experience - start to finish - from getting information to rent the home to check out was easy and very professional. Thanks to all! We will be back!!

Non swimming beach

property was lovely-view & wildlife lovely. Disappointed in not being able to swim. Very rocky beach - even walking was challenging. Lot's of eagles and ever changing landscape was beautiful but did not meet our expectations of a beach holiday.

Family time at the beach

We planned this holiday almost a year ago and my family had one very specific request. That the house be right on the beach. We had 6 adults and one infant. so it was hard to find. Thanks you for lmaking it all possible! From the moment wea arrived until the time we left it could not have been better. The accomadations were fantastic, the view awesome I would recommand this rental to anyone who was looking for a special getaway. The wildfife was outstanding from the bald eagles to the seals at night. The area is peaceful and enviting.

Patricia K.

Columbia Beach House, Parksville

Very nice home in a nice neighborhood/location. The only thing I would suggest to add would be an outdoor propane heater so we could sit out in the evening and enjoy and sounds of the ocean.

Leanne P.

A wonderful home in a great location

We spent a wonderful week staying at the Columbia Beach House. Firstly, the home it's self is perfect. Spacious, the location, the breath taking views from each of the rooms and the walks on the pebbled beach. Secondly, the home is so close to all of the best sandy beaches Parksville and Qualicum Beach offer. The fenced backyard and dog washing facility were enjoyed by our dog. The sunsets and sunrises were exceptional. The kitchen was fully stock. The personal touches throughout the home made it special. A real home away from our home.

Adrian B.

Beautiful place

Outstanding location with a beautiful view. Everything you need is there. Very quite neighborhood. Beach is not sandy, but quite rocky. Even though, a wonderful place to stroll and explore.
Two things I think could use some improvement are, the bed in the Master BR really needs to be replaced, and the CRT televisions need to go in the trash.

Family Gettogether

We had an excellent time at Columbia Beach House.
Our greeter Charlotte was very friendly & welcoming.
The home was quite expansive and there was ample room for everyone, even those that wished a little quiet time on their own. My sister and her husband flew in from Whitehorse to meet us at the beach house for our father's 80th and our mother's 75th birthdays. The house is amazing as are the views and the rancher style was perfect for my father's mobility issues. The massive kitchen is stocked with all the cookware and dishes needed to prepare gourmet meals for a group. Coffee every morning on the deck with breathtaking views was fantastic.
Would we come back? Absolutely we would, we never wanted to leave!

Family reunion

We had a lovely time, the house was amazing

Susan B.

Comfortable home in an excellent location

The house is in an excellent location close to restaurants and coffee shops in Parksville and Qualicum Beach. Great ocean views with seals and eagles passing by. We appreciated the cosy gas fireplace during our winter stay. There were some recent upgrades flat screen TVs, new carpet, new coffee maker and toaster, but a couple of minor maintenance issues that need to be taken care of fridge leaked on defrost cycle, patio door sticks while closing, smoke alarm too close to oven!. But overall perhaps the best house we have rented in the area. We would rent it again.

Keith R.

Beautiful Beach House

Stunning house on the beach in Parksville, Vancoouver Island. Spacious, comfortable, well equipped and in a fabulous location. The perfect way to end our Canadian adventure.

Jane C.

Family Vacation

This property is everything it seems to be and more. We were not disappointed with any part of it.

Great house

Large house with high end furnishings located on a large well treed lot on the beach.
What's not to like.

Great Family Vacation

This was the perfect vacation rental for our family vacation. We were three families six adults, 2 kids and 2 babies and the house provided ample room and entertainment for all age groups. The house was exactly as shown in the pictures and we were not disappointed from the moment we walked in. The kitchen was well stocked with spices and other odds and ends. We used the BBQ most nights however it could use a good cleaning or upgrade. The location was ideal, being right on the ocean and provided endless hours of entertainment for the kids, playing in the sand, hunting for seashells and other sea life, watching the sea lions and flying kites. The house is very close to grocery stores and central to many attractions on the island that can be visited in short day trips. The property management staff were very easy to deal with and prompt in replying to any questions or concerns we had. An unforgettable vacation at the Columbia Beach House!

Wonderful stay!

Convenient location, very clean house with unparalleled ocean view. Charlotte and Liz are very helpful and friendly. I cant ask more.

A 3 day beach-house holiday

We were2 families,2 parents, 2 children & 2 grandparents
The home was fabulous, the view of the ocean awsome situated in a quite neibourhood where we didn't have to worry about the children.
The tidal pool in the back of the house gave us all hours of exploration & a safe place for the children to swim, even at high tide.
The home was close to everything & there is lots to do and see in the Parksville area, we especially liked the sand castle display on the beach & of course Coombs.
We would recommend this rental home & your company to anyone interested in spending a wonderful holiday at the ocean.

Beautiful Location!

The property was beautiful. The house is actually nicer than the pictures show it. We stayed in the winter so we knew the outside wouldn't be able to be enjoyed as much however the house was not prepared for the unseasonable cold weather. The heating wasn't working nor was the fireplace. The EMR team helped to rectify this problem but our first night was QUITE chilly. The stereo doesn't work and be sure to bring all your own items with you - soap, salt, pepper as there are none of these things in the home when you arrive unlike other home rentals.

Would love to go back in the summer and try again however!

Andrea B.

The Beach house

Great place to go, dog friendly with the caveat that the beach in front of the house is an on leash area and the neighbour to the left is not. The house itself is great, with a well stocked kitchen and all amenities. Loved our time there.

Columbia Beach House , 2 months of heaven!

We rented this property as a staycation Covid getaway and it was absolutely perfect! The location of this home is spectacular, the beach life is ever changing with the tides! The home is spacious, well appointed, and a great destination for people wanting to explore the mid island.
The house was clean, new king bed in master suite and all the towels and amenities you could need. We had a couple of issues and they were dealt with immediately by Yvonne, an excellent greeter. This home is in a lovely safe neighbour hood and very quiet, no traffic noise! The only sounds we hear are the birds and sea lions barking!

Covid Retreat on the Beach

We have stayed with family at The Columbia Beach House previously and were looking so forward to another family holiday this year in Parksville. One Brother now lives in Parksville so my other Brother & his wife rented a place and we rented Columbia Beach House to spend a month visiting. With the Covid situation and travel not recommended my brother was able to get his money back for their rental however we were not able to get a refund from EMR so decided we would go and keep our footprint in the area very small. As a result we filled our time with walks, hikes, cards and relaxation. We were thrilled to have the Orca Whales spend 3 hours right out in front of the house one afternoon. We enjoyed exploring the beachfront in front of the house and watching others enjoy it too while walking along with their kids and/or dogs. The house is beautifully located on a quiet street with a beautiful front view of the Strait of Georgia. We are so fortunate to have spent time there over the past few years and sorry the property is not going to be available in the future. The house was well stocked with kitchen dishes and cooking needs, towels and bedding.

Jill and Barry C.

Columbia Beach House

We had a wonderful family Thanksgiving gatheringvhere. There was sooo much room for all and a beautiful spot to enjoy the beach and area!! An amazing experience with lots of special memories.v

Beautiful Location

This house is a large pet friendly location. Though it is due for some upgrades it still has a lot to offer. The views of the Ocean are incredible and you are in between two great island locations, Parksville, and Qualicum Beach. The Marina and Pub is almost your neighbor which makes for lots of seafood treats and fun.

Columbia House

Incredible location & right on the water. House is large with views from most rooms. Lovely subdivision. Love the pet room & the fact you can have your pets

Columbia House Vacation

Fabulous location. EMR was excellent in responding to issues that needed attention. Disappointed that the fence was not repaired until just before we left so our small dog was not able to use the yard.The wall oven was problematic and needs to be replaced and the carpet in the living room was very stained and also needs to be replaced. Lots of dishes and utensils but a few more pots would be nice. The sectional in the living room is showing it's age as well as the patio furniture. A few coasters would be good in the living room. Kudos to Yvonne and her staff as well as Diane and Brad the gardeners.
