The real star of Courtenay Beach House -
come and unwind in nature's backyard.
Sweeping down to the ocean from the house is the large back lawn – the perfect place to relax or to play games (croquet, bocce, badminton – toys provided).
The mature Garry oak tree - unique to southern Vancouver Island - provides beach shade.
The private natural sand beach had driftwood logs to sit on and a firepit for that evening bonfire. Part of the beach area has been naturalized with native plants, such as dune grasses and sedges, and is one of the reasons there is so much bird and marine life at the shoreline. There is a listing of some of the native plants on the beach and in the garden in the binder at the house if you are interested.
Both the garden and the house feel incredibly private with no other homes visible because of the extensive greenery that surrounds the house.
