Our home (yes our home, not a full time vacation rental) is located on Osborne bay in Crofton, the East side of Vancouver Island. Our home is located on a dead end road and is a very quiet 0.3 of an acre. The yard is completely fenced and gated to provide security, piece of mind, and keep the little ones safe. The home looks out onto Osborne Bay and is literally steps out the back gate to the beach. As an added convenience we also live on sight in a separate accommodation outside of the fenced yard. We are literally steps away to assist you with any issues, problems, questions, or advice you may need.
The multi tear yard features sculpted yard, gardens, hot tub, gas bbq, glass enclosed sun decks, fish pond and decks with patio table and chairs for entertaining or relaxing and taking in the magnificent water and island views.
Our home is a “character home” which is the original farm house built in 1901 and retains much of the charm but with all the modern conveniences such as flat screen tvs (x3), sounds around system, wireless internet, full modern kitchen with dish washer, full range and cook top, microwave, 2 door refrigerator with ice and water dispenser and deep freeze. There is also full size clothes washer and dryer on the main floor.
In the summer we have central air conditioning and in the cooler months we have central forced air heat, all the tile floors on the main floor are heated, and we have an excellent wood burning fire place in the living room.
Our home is 2650 ft2 total with 2 bedrooms and 1 full bathroom on the main floor and 1 bedroom, 1 full bathroom, and 1 sitting room complete with entertainment system upstairs. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and windows and twin patio doors opening up to the deck and water views. The other 2 bedrooms have queen sized beds.
