    Beach Front Studio on Maple Bay, Steps Away to Your own Private Beach Patio

    Adults-only beach vacation home
    Private beach front 950 sq. ft. tastefully decorated studio suite, literally 22 steps to your own personal patio on the ocean in beautiful Maple Bay, British Columbia. This fully equipped south facing private suite comes with a luxury queen sized sleigh bed with ocean views, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, fridge, stove as well with ocean views from the bay window of the kitchen. A 40" Sony flat screen TV with cable and PVR, full bathroom, with shower, sink and toilet, and plenty of bath and beach towels. New apartment sized washer and dryer. New free standing cast iron propane fireplace for those cozy nights. Your own private entrance with deck and Napolean barbeque and outdoor propane fire pit table. French doors opening off the dining area onto your private lawn overlooking the ocean; enjoy your meals to the sound of the water lapping onto the shore below. Kayaks & Paddleboard available for your use to explore the abundant wildlife and beauty of Maple Bay, witness seals, otters, herons, eagles, and whales (occasionally we're lucky enough to have Orcas in the Bay). The unit also has a heat pump for quiet heating and cooling. Maple Mountain is right out the back door with several well marked hiking trails, exposing magnificent vistas of Salt Spring island, Maple and Cowichan Bays, Quamichan lake, and in the distance Victoria and the Olympic Mountain range. Within walking distance is an excellent Scotish Pub overlooking the Bay, boasting local craft beers, great food, and live music. Close by are both Maple Bay marina with restaurant and coffee shop, and Poet's Cove marina. Paddle board, and kayak rentals are just in the Bay. Maple Bay beach is truly one of the nicest in the south island area. Very quaint and quiet neighborhood with a unique charm. Also in walking distance are tennis courts, pickle ball courts, and yoga. Seaside Casita Maple Bay also offers onsite Massage Therapy to complement your vacation experience. The Cowichan Valley's name means warmland. The valley is proud to have the longest growing season of anywhere else in Canada. The abundance of fantastic local foods, wines, craft beers and artisans make this a must stop place to enjoy your vacation. The valley is home to several wineries, a full day can be spent traveling the area experiencing wine tastings. Each Saturday year round, the Duncan outdoor market draws people from all over the island and abroad. Salt Spring Saturday market is also just a short ferry ride away. Westholme Tea Farm is the only place in Canada growing its own local teas, with a teahouse and site tours. Merrydale Cidery grows and produces its own ciders and is an excellent place for lunch and a picnic on the grounds. Genoa Bay farm a mere 5km away has Wednesday night pizza night, with an outdoor pizza oven and an experience not to be missed. Alderlea farms is yet another of the valley's organic farm to table restaurants with its famous wood fired outdoor pizza on Sunday evenings. Envision seeing pallets of home grown tomatoes, while nearby an outdoor cauldron boils with fresh homemade tomato soups and pasta sauce. Several of the surrounding areas provide hiking, biking and walking trails. Two fresh water lakes, Shawnigan and Cowichan are the perfect places for fresh water activities. The Koksilah and Cowichan rivers flow through the valley,; in the fall the salmon run brings in the bald eagles in proliferation. Both of these rivers in the summers are wonderful places to swim, cool off and enjoy. Whale watching tours, fishing charters are all nearby in Cowichan Bay. Shopping, antiquing, golfing, bird watching, museums, art studios, dining and warm friendly people are just a few of the other attractions that the Cowichan Valley and Maple Bay have to offer.

          Great stay in Maple Bay- wonderful to be right on the water

          Appreciate that there was a kitchen with a few of the necessities-coffee, milk, butter- sharp knives. Farm produce nearby to make breakfast and great restaurants close by as well!

          5/5 Excellent

            Little Bit of Paradise

            Seaside Casita Maple Bay is an awesome place to sit on the red chairs right on the bay and forget all your troubles. Very little need to leave this place for anything. Stop on your way in Duncan at the Fish Market, pick up some seafood and enjoy some wonderful meals cooked on the BBQ. Or visit Maple Bay Marina or Genoa Bay Marina for the best meals ever. We would like to thank John for his hospitality for sharing his beautiful comfortable cozy home with us in our own private suite with everything you need. Just go, sit back and enjoy the bay.

            5/5 Excellent

              Wonderful place - wonderful setting

              My husband and I arrived for a 4 day stay. We had a little trouble finding the place as I put Duncan in the GPS instead of Maple with a quick text to the owners all was settle quickly. We were blown away by the beautiful view of the ocean and the nearby islands. The place had a great set up - lovely place to sit around and relax - at the chairs by the ocean on in the suite, at the table or in the chairs. The bed was great and the bathroom was good too. There was laundry but we didn't need it - but would be super helpful for a longer stay. John was very friendly and helpful and also a quiet upstairs neighbor. I'm not a great sleeper so really appreciated how quiet the place was. We also visited the nearby pub for beer and burgers, good food, good service and again that amazing view. My husband and I both agree we would like to come back and would recommend it to all of our friends. Colleen
