Bowser, 5435 Deep Bay Drive

Bowser, 5435 Deep Bay Drive

Wide open ocean and mountain views both to the east and west welcome you at this appealing, walk-on oceanfront lot on Vancouver Island’s east coast. Nestled in a community of oceanfront homes, this lot offers good privacy with just two visible neighbours and no buildings across the street on the marina side.

The property is only a short drive from the larger service centres of Courtenay and Qualicum Beach-Parksville which provide an array of convenient and essential services. The community of Bowser is on the east coast of Vancouver Island, approximately 41 miles north of Nanaimo. It is in a region known as Lighthouse Country, which extends from Qualicum Beach to Fanny Bay, with the Deep Bay marina and boat launch across the street.

With a beautiful, sandy walk-on beach out front of the property and miles of beach to explore at low tide, this property offers amazing recreational opportunities. The views encompass the start of Baynes Sound, Denman Island, Chrome Island and the Strait of Georgia with the mainland mountains beyond. To the west of the property and across the road from the driveway is more beachfront which faces the small lagoon where the Deep Bay Marina sits. This opens up to views of the central Vancouver Island mountains. There is a stunning vista from every angle. Marine traffic and wildlife are common out front of the property, from eagles and herons to seabirds, whales and other ocean marine mammals.

The grassy lot is fully fenced, with privacy fencing at the road and chain link around the perimeter. There is a vehicle gate at the road as well as a walk-in gate, and also a gate at the beachfront.

There is already BC Hydro power, water and a septic system (unpermitted) in place as the lot has been previously used as an RV site (not permitted with the current zoning). Two sheds with power are on the property at the road, these can stay or be removed.

The community of Parksville, which provides all the services of a major town, is approximately 30 minutes away while Courtenay/Comox is approximately 40 minutes and provides all amenities and services as well as a major island airport and a hospital constructed in 2017. Closer to home, Deep Bay offers marina and boat launch facilities. Golfing, skiing, kayaking, boating, hiking and camping are all within easy distance. The region is also known for its amazing gardens and outdoor living.
