Departure Bay Beach House | Seaview Beach House

Interior Amenities

With over 2,100 square feet of living space (1,400 s/f on the main floor and 700s/f on the upper level), this spacious 3-bedroom, and 3-full bathroom home (maximum of 6 guests) is West Coast living at its very best.

Seaview Beach House was extensively renovated in 2009, with a further upgrade in 2012/2013. The home is well-appointed and infused with light. It boasts large open principal rooms, floor-to-ceiling windows on the top and main level, a wood-burning fireplace, well-equipped modern kitchen, and parking for two cars in a private driveway. An open kitchen with eat-at bar is a chef's delight and well-equipped with all the tools to cook up a storm while watching the comings and goings of Departure Bay.

The living room/dining room area is open concept with large windows, soft neutral colours, comfortable seating for 8 in the living area and 8 at the dining table, a real wood burning fireplace, flat panel TV, DVD player, stereo system and good light for reading. The house has secure wireless high-speed Internet (WiFi) access, a local land-line phone and multi-channel cable TV.

Upstairs are two large bedrooms. The master has a queen bed with private newly renovation ensuite with soaker tub, large tiled walk-in shower, large walk-in closet and a walk-out deck with an ocean view. This bedroom has a TV, desk, office chair, and wireless Internet access and can be your office away from the office.

The other large bedroom on this level has a queen bed, its own bathroom (not ensuite), a TV and ample closet space. The third bedroom in the house is on the main floor. It has twin beds (which can be made up as a king), with an office desk and chair and its own bathroom (which is not ensuite). This bathroom has been renovated to make it accessible for less mobile guests.
