This lovely, quaint, self contained cottage is nestled on a partially treed, south sloping half acre.

A short walk down a treed lane takes you to the sandy log covered beach where you can walk for miles. Beachwood cottage is fully furnished, impeccably clean, independent accommodation, with full kitchen and bathroom facilities. The 750 square foot cottage is the only dwelling on the property. It offers one bedroom with french doors opening to the private yard. A daybed located in the front room can sleep an extra guest, or is simply a lovely place for an afternoon nap.

The cottage, originally built in the 1920s, is nestled on a secluded South sloping half acre of waterfront property, conveniently located just 15 kilometers from downtown Victoria. Whether you are sitting on the dock enjoying the sunrise, lounging in the cozy front living room watching the birdlife, or relaxing in the adarondak chairs on the front lawn; every aspect of the cottage is close to nature and provides a unique opportunity to enjoy the very best of what the unspoiled beautiful West Coast of British Columbia has to offer. Watch a tremendous array of wildlife, including resident swans nesting on the lagoon shore, river otters eating their crab dinner on the dock, and even the occasional whale passing in the distance. The peaceful and serene lagoon is a designated bird sanctuary which is host to a vast variety of bird species including eagles, blue herons, king fishers, with seasonal visits from osprey, bufflehead ducks and so many more. One spacious bedroom with french doors opening to your private yard. A daybed in the front room for your afternoon nap, or your guest. High speed wireless internet. Cable TV. Telephone. 3 km to Royal Roads University. 7 km to Lester Pearson College. BBQ. Outdoor furniture. A fire-pit, for those days that you just don’t want to end. Kitchen is fully equipped.

We enjoyed short walk to beach to see sunrises, drinking coffee looking at logoon with lots of ducks and much cooler weather than back home.

Cozy and very functional cottage in a wonderful garden setting overlooking Albert Lagoon, a protected wild life area, and the Straits of Juan de Fucca. Loved watching the birds and the shipping in the Straits. The cottage is a destination in itself.

About the neighbourhood
Beachwood Cottage is located on a beautiful south sloping 1/2 acre, situated on the East side of Rural Metchosin, only 14 Km from the center of downtown Victoria. Shopping, groceries, and restaurants are all available at the Westshore shopping district 3 km East. Royal Roads University is just 3 km, Pearson College is 7 km. Victoria's Galloping Goose Bicylce Trail is approximately 3 km. Metchosin and Sooke provide excellent Parks, walking trails, and access to nature and farmland.
Getting around
A car is recommended here. However, there is a limited bus service and we have had guests stay and rely on the bus. We have also had guests stay and use bikes for transportation. Neither are fast or easy, but with great attitudes and the right mindset they enjoyed the whole experience.
