The Tanglewood Beach House is a sanctuary of tranquility and sophistication, tastefully furnished to reflect the relaxed West Coast lifestyle. Special care has been taken to equip this vacation house with all the amenities you would expect in a fine hotel with the added features and space that are unique to a home. These comfortable accommodations offer you an experience of seaside living at its best.
This 1150 square foot beach house is situated all on one level for stair-free living with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, full gourmet kitchen, dining area and living room. The open plan creates a relaxed atmosphere and beech wood floors extend throughout the living areas to create a low allergen environment.
Your home away from home boasts a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with gas cook top, electric oven, dishwasher and full size refrigerator. Outfitted with all the pans, pots and kitchen tools you might need to cook a feast or to enjoy a quiet night in. The granite counter tops and bar seating make meal preparation and entertaining a breeze. You can also take the cooking outside to the private patio.
The back patio is set up with chairs, table, umbrella and a large natural gas barbeque with burner for outdoor entertaining. The large back lawn is a great place to turn cartwheels, to kick around a ball or to enjoy a glass of wine while taking in the afternoon sun.
Inside, take it easy. Stretch out on the sofa and enjoy the 42” LCD television with digital cable and DVD player. Or, curl up with a book on the window seat next to the natural gas fireplace for a lazy morning. The spacious living area provides plenty of room for all. The sofa also opens into a comfortable double bed to create additional sleeping arrangements.
Comfort and solitude are yours! Each spacious bedroom is furnished with a queen size bed dressed with fine linens, cotton blankets, extra pillows and down duvets. You'll find plush bathrobes in each bedroom closet to enjoy during your stay.
Both bathrooms are stocked with luxurious, plump towels and have spacious showers and heated floors. Take time to light some candles and linger in the Master Bathroom’s deep soaking tub.
Slip in a CD or connect your iPod to the docking station and enjoy a meal at the dining table. It comfortably seats six to eight people for family dinners with a booster seat provided, as well as children’s dinnerware. The vaulted ceilings and windows offer beautiful views of the Fir, Cedar and Arbutus trees just outside. Double French doors open onto the patio and the majestic old growth forest of Rathtrevor Provincial Park.
Enjoy private access to a magnificent two-kilometer stretch of wide, sandy beach. A short stroll on a paved walkway will take you to the ocean, which at low tide recedes almost a kilometer. This world-renowned beach is an ideal place for exploring and provides everyone with an opportunity to play and create in the sand. During the day build sand castles, hunt for seashells, fly a kite or roast marshmallows over an open fire on the beach. When the tide rolls in over the sun-baked sand, the warmed water is unbeatable for swimming and saltwater fun. Beach toys, wagon, cooler and towels are all provided by the Tanglewood Beach House for days filled with beach adventures.TripAdvisor property ID 2306850...Read more

Do you know the feeling of "ahhh" when you step into a place that is truly wonderful? This is "that" place. Very close to the beach (2 minute walk), full amenities and completely furnished for even the most discerning of guests.
Shelley was extremely easy to work with, regardless of the question(s) and is concerned people enjoy themselves while at the beach house. To this extent, she has provided a guide book outlining everything in the home (including instructions) and in the area(s) surrounding. It is a very thorough helpful book. This property is truly allergen free which was extremely important to me.
There are a great many sites to visit in and around the island area however if you simply want to relax, this is the perfect location. May you enjoy many tranquil moments in a beautiful home along with attention to detail and quality professional service in booking the Beach House with Shelley.
It makes me so happy when guests appreciate what we have worked so hard to create at the Tanglewood Beach House. It is truly a restful place. If you've spent the day running around on the beach, or out seeing the local sights, the Beach House welcomes you back and you can throw your feet up and enjoy the House. Thanks for the review!

I have stayed at a lot of different rental properties and can honestly say that the Tanglewood Beach House is one of the best I have stayed at. They have a great book that the owners created outlining the area and what there is to do. It also includes a reference guide for the condo on simple things but things that if you don't live there you wouldn't know how to turn certain things on/off and which remote does what. The kitchen also has everything you need to cook with.
I'm so glad you enjoyed your time at the Tanglewood Beach House. We do our best to make time spent there as enjoyable and relaxing as possible.
