Waterfront

Serendipity Cottage is a place to 'get away from it all'!

Whether on a rainy or sunny day, the huge covered deck allows you to rest and relax and take in your surroundings. The tall trees are home to several bald eagle families and we have counted over 60 eagles (mature and immature) on the beach at one time. Sitting on the cottage deck and watching an eagle soar and glide by is truly breathtaking! Other wildlife includes deer that wander onto the property with their young, grazing peacefully for all to watch, and hummingbirds 'dart' back and forth and stop to hover and catch a drink of sugar water from the feeder.

The beach, while rocky, does not seem to be a hindrance. In fact, under each overturned stone lie more interesting sea creatures to discover. The view from the beach is breathtaking. Off in the distance one can see the mainland of BC and cruise ships gliding by on their way to Alaska. Closer to shore are the islands of Chrome, Denman and Hornby (little Hawaii). Make sure to bring your binoculars so you don't miss out on the seals, sea lions, sea otters and whales. In the evening kick back for a great beach fire and 'smores' and lovely sunsets.

Activities:

Within walking distance down a tree 'draped' lane is the community of Bowser. It has a 'well-stocked, reasonably priced' grocery store, gift shop/dollar store, gourmet coffee shop with delicious baked goods and lunches, a public library, and a gym. Once you arrive at Serendipity Cottage, you won't want to 'go into town' to get groceries, etc. and you won't have to! If you do want to go 'further afield', great places to explore include Horne Lake and caves, numerous walking and hiking trails, Farmers markets, Coombs, Qualicum Beach, Englishman River Falls, and Cathedral Grove.

We thoroughly enjoyed experiencing Vancouver Island and coming 'home' to this beautiful little cottage each day. Early morning walks along the beach, short walks to the local coffee shop and other shops/amenities were a great start to each day. Driving proximity to many areas of interest around the Island added to our enjoyment. An added bonus with dinner our first evening at the Ship & Shore restaurant in nearby Deep Bay - great people and great food!
Thanky you to Chris for an easy and great experience - from initial contact through to the end of our stay.

Thank you for your kind comments, Denise. Hopefully you can get back to the Island one day again soon. The Ship and Shore has recently changed owners, so we will have to take you up on your recommendation next we are out!

We came as guest from Europe and enjoyed our stay very much. The cottage contains all you need to make your stay comfortable, we did not miss anything. The location is beautiful: beach is close-by, wildlife all around (deer, rabbits, squirrels), and it is a good starting point for outdoor adventures. Communication with the owner, Chris, was very nice - she provided us with loads of tips and hints what to do, was always approachable, and always replied in almost an instant.

Thank you, Markus. It was a pleasure to talk to you and help you out whenever the need arose. You and your family were very easy to deal with. Hope to cross paths again one day soon.

Our family of five had a magical stay at Serendipity cottage. The location is ideal, close to all of the attractions we wanted to see on the island (Cathedral grove, Horne Lake caves, Hornby Island, Parksville beach). We were also close to amenities, with two well stocked grocery stores and a really good taco stand minutes away. In the evenings when we returned from our day trips we would walk down to the ocean and watch seals, eagles and other shore birds. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The cottage was comfortable and well stocked with any kitchen supplies you would need. We have memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you to Chris and Brian for being such fabulous and accommodating hosts!

The overall feeling in the cabin was great. It felt like home and had everything that we needed for our stay. The owners were great and went out of their way to let us know of the variety of things to do in the area. Walking distance to a grocery store, liquor store, and specialty shops. We would recommend this to our friends.
