Description from owner


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, microwave, 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 beach towels are all provided by the Tanglewood Beach House for days filled with beach adventures.
