A brand new cosy waterfront accommodation on the market; a real holiday treat. Read all about it.

A one bedroom self-contained waterfront suite where you look out to the mighty spruce tree standing tall on the foreshore, where majestic fish eagles patiently perch with eagle eyes ready to pounce on their prey; & where brightly coloured rainbows & sunsets grace our sky.

Deep Bay Retreat is ideal for a couple where the view from your queen size bed looks out to Deep Bay Harbour and mountains beyond. This self-contained unit has all the essentials to make your holiday run smoothly:- a well equipped kitchen, an antique oak dining table with 5 chairs, just in case you entertain. Your living room has a 40" Smart HD TV and a comfy spring mattress hideaway couch. You have a full bath/shower. If you prefer eating outside, there is a patio with table, chairs, and a gas BBQ. Your snug suite is situated on the lower level of our home where you have your own private entrance.
Small pets are considered on request with a charge of $25.00 per/pet.

This sweet little hideaway on Vancouver Island is about a 45-minute drive north from the Nanaimo ferry and about 30 minutes south from Comox airport. Deep Bay is in an area known as Lighthouse Country where you can enjoy many activities in and around the area, whether it is spring, summer, fall or winter.

Your walk-on ocean front retreat is at the bottom of our garden where you can easily launch your kayaks, row boats, canoes and/or paddle boards. Next door is a boat launch and a marina for any larger boats, or maybe you will arrive by boat. Just across the bay is our sandy beach playground that triples in size depending on the tidal-moon cycle. There you can enjoy a swim, beach-comb, build castles, take photos, paint, or just chill with a good book. The area is famous for wild oysters and clams, so don’t forget your fishing license so you can have fun digging for your dinner. Close by and a pleasant walk leads to Vancouver Island University’s Deep Bay Marine Field Station, famous for their" High Tea By The Sea" and their Grey Whale exhibit. Fishing for salmon & cod is but a few steps away where, if you don’t have a boat, Van Isle charters await. You have enchanting walking/hiking & biking trails close by awaiting your discovery. Check out the web site:- "vancouverislandwalkhikebike" for some details on where to find these trails. A visit to the famous Horne Lake Caves is a half-hour drive inland. The Pacific Rainforest Adventure Tours located in Parksville is a delightful way to learn and explore this magical island. Numerous unique and artistic treasure stores a-wait when you take an extravaganza adventure into Bowser, Coombs, & Qualicum Beach. The Wildlife Recovery Center and Parrot Rescue Sanctuary are all in a day’s adventure, where you can visit and share some love. Heading north and guarding over us all is majestic Mount Washington where hikers, bikers and photographers are free to wander her range when her snow cloak has melted; and winter months, you have all the winter delights to explore and enjoy.

At the end of the day, right next door is our local licensed café/store/launderette , the "Ship & Shore" where it is claimed “the best fish and chips” & burgers can be enjoyed; or if prefer, start the day with coffee and a full breakfast. Enjoy an early morning or evening stroll around our marina docks as fishermen & sailors alike both busy themselves with their tasks. The ever hopeful seals and otters love to hang around in hopes of easy morsels.

With gentle waves lapping at the bottom of the garden and vibrant mesmerizing sunsets setting for the day, under the trees lie hammocks allowing for quiet contemplation and reflection. As darkness descends, clear skies allow the heavens to twinkle and wink at us. Down below, as Deep Bay quietens, and depending on the fire hazard, an open pit fire can be enjoyed while listening to the sounds around you of wildlife calling, and the echo of conversations carried on the wind.

Just a little tasting of what can be enjoyed while staying at this sweet retreat in charming Deep Bay.

Your self-contained accommodation is on the lower level of our home with your own private entrance, and you have your own parking spot. There is a path down to the ocean where the fire-pit is; this is where you can launch your kayak, canoe or paddle board.
Depending on the fire risk you are welcome to use the fire pit.

We are happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have, but we respect your space and privacy in our quiet home.

Thanks, Frannie and Bon for a wonderful few days! The apartment is beautiful, peaceful and comfortable. We really appreciated the care that you have put into setting up the apartment - we found everything that we needed. Frannie greeted us very warmly, showed us the apartment, and then gave us complete privacy. The cafe just down the road served great fish and chips - they claim they are the best on the island, and in our experience, that is definitely true! The Marine Centre, just a 10 minute walk away was really interesting to visit, and we also enjoyed a drive down the coast to Qualicum and Parksville. But, of all of those wonderful things, our very favourite was the hammock by the water. It was ... perfect.

Thank you Marek and Stephanie for such a lovely review, very appreciated. You should have mentioned about the TV though, thanks for the heads up. We will definitely sort that out. Thanks again and all the best.

We were helped with directions over the phone while we were in Deep Bay to find Frannie and Bon's place as we had a hard time seeing the house number. Silly us.Should have looked a bit more closely at the prominent sign out front.

Hi Alex and Cindy, thanks for your great review and your tips for improvement. Happy to hear you had a relaxing and comfortable stay. It was a pleasure meeting you and hosting you. We look forward to meeting you again. All the best and stay warm with the coming winter. I wonder what it will bring this time around. Summer surely has not come here yet, I'm still waiting!!!

I'm blessed to be living in Deep Bay now, a community of relaxed, laid back folk, many who have come from all over the world, just like me.
I've been privileged to have lived in different cultures within Africa, India, Wales, England and now Canada, and I have travelled a fair amount.
I'm a believer in welcoming, accepting and respecting our diverse cultures of the world, and love learning from them and incorporating what works for me into my lifestyle.
My fashion sense is a collection of styles from different cultures and second hand shopping, so much fun!
My music taste is very eclectic, loving the sounds of Africa, India, Spain, Mexico, Italy, the blues, rock & roll, Il Divo, just to give you an idea!
I love all kinds of food, from spice to sweets.
I'm a firm believer in:- UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL.
