    About this property

    Oceanfront Executive Home - Very Private

    Family-friendly vacation home in Cowichan Bay with fitness center
    This hidden oasis is located on a private property in the Cowichan Valley on beautiful Vancouver Island, about 20 minutes from Duncan. The house, according to the previous owners from 1978-2010, was originally designed not by an architect, but by a Danish draftsman. We love the layout of the house - it allows for ocean views from every room. The house boasts spacious rooms with clear cedar planking used extensively in the vaulted ceilings of the great rooms, the dining room, kitchen and bedrooms. Views are directly across from Cowichan Bay to Genoa Bay and Separation Point. To the East, one can see the southern tip of Salt Spring Island. From any of the decks on the house, you can see all the activity going on in the Bay. Fishing boats, sailing regattas, whale watching boats and large yachts pass by regularly. A favourite feature of the house is the patio on the lowest level. It provides a fabulous all-weather space to sit and watch the ocean and stars in the evening. We call it the "scotch deck". The Cherry Point Marina is located a few hundred yards to the West of the property. It is a lovely marina that we use to tie up our own boat. It is a well protected harbour, and space is always available. The Cowichan Bay village is within a 5-minute drive and is a great spot to have lunch. The Red Rock Café or the Cow Bay Pub are some of our favourite dining spots. For a treat, you can grab ice cream cones at the Udder Guys shop. The Great Greens market is also about a 5-minute drive away, on the corner of the Island Highway and Koksilah Road, where you can explore various small shops and find the liquor store. The climate at Cowichan Bay is always nice, even during the rainy and cooler months of December to April. The Cowichan Valley was known to the local Indigenous peoples as the “Warm Lands”. We love the fact that the weather in the valley during June to October is gloriously warm and sunny, and we hope that you will too!

    5/5 Excellent

      Loved, loved our stay!

      Could not ask for a better place for our annual family reunion. Accommodations incredible and exactly as advertised. Great communication with the owner. Recommend highly.

      5/5 Excellent

        Just what we needed

        Plenty of space to have some solitary moments but the house is set up for family together time as well. So many hidden surprises - I won’t spoil the fun! Excellent central location but felt secluded. Saw a whale and enjoyed daily visits from a deer family.

        5/5 Excellent

          West Coast Wow

          Our group had a superb stay at Otter's Run. Pictures don't do the property justice, it was batter than imagined. Our hosts hospitality and communication was exceptional. Our group of 6 adults and three kids loved everything about our stay. Great spot!

          5/5 Excellent

            Otter view paradise

            Otter view is a wonderful house on the water. You walk in and the view is amazing. The house is a wonderful clean and well equipped house. We cooked in every night in a great kitchen. Bedrooms were lovely all with a view with crisp bedlinen. We loved this house so much and we will be back for sure!!
