About this listing
Casa Miramar is a very private and spacious home with a unique vantage point overlooking the ocean, islands, mountains and sky but minutes away from all the activities and enjoyment that the Cowichan Valley has to offer.
This listing at Casa Miramar is for a single or a couple in the queen room. There is one full bathroom adjacent to the bedroom.
The open 'great room' space off the kitchen is a shared space and yours to enjoy along with the hot tub and decks, all overlooking the ocean view.
Coffee and tea will be available in the mornings along with a simple offering of juice, fruit, granola, bagels/toast etc for you to prepare at your leisure. Or you can bring along your own snacks for minimal use of the kitchen.
You are also free to use the dance studio for a morning stretch or, if desired, book your own private tango lesson!
Interaction with Guests
As your host I will be home to greet you and show you around upon your arrival. I have my own private space where I can retreat but I am available anytime to answer questions you have about exploring the area, hikes, restaurants etc
The Valley has become a destination! Farm to table restaurants, marinas, vineyards, whale watching tours, hiking trails, golf and tennis are all within a very short drive. Parks and beach access are within walking distance.
If you arrive in the late afternoon and would like to go out for dinner I have found that the guests enjoy to go to Cowichan Bay ... a unique fishing village on the water, less than 10 minutes away, with several restaurant options and a pub, all overlooking the marina. But meandering through the village is a treat anytime of day! Guests particularly love the local bakery.
You do need a car since the public transportation is quite far.
We are a 45 minute drive north of downtown Victoria between Mill Bay and Cowichan Bay.
Other Things to Note
Casa Miramar is a spacious guest house ... there are several rooms available for booking. On occasion, depending on the individual guests, more than one reservation is accepted at a time. The bathroom near 'the single room' and 'the queen room' has the only shower so will be used by all guests. There is another 2 piece bathroom near the kitchen which is mostly used by the guests in 'the loft room' but can also be used by all guests. It is rare to have more than one booking at a time but it does happen so I like for guests to know the situation before they book.
If you are wanting a beautiful retreat setting, surrounded by nature and the sounds of birds and crickets, yet close to all the Valley has to offer, I would be happy to have you as a guest at Casamiramar.
This is a non smoking home.
We are on a well so consideration for water usage is appreciated.
Quiet time after 11 PM.
Thank you ... :)
