Very simple cottage style rancher in a quiet, country neighborhood. Lots of level parking. Five minute walk to the public beach. Coffee shop, restaraunts and retail shopping in quaint Shawnigan Village. 10 minute drive to the historic Kinsol Trestle.
Our house is within minutes of almost anything you want to do outdoors. Year round hiking, running and cycling trails, water skiing and wake boarding in the summer, kayaking tours and rentals a short drive away. Several restaraunts and pubs, some within walking distance and even a reliable transit system that can get you to either Victoria or Duncan in under an hour.
We have 2 available bedrooms, a weight room, bathroom and you are more than welcome to share our kitchen/dining room with us. We also have an RV that could be used as a backup or somewhere for the kids to "camp". There is a fire pit out front and a beautiful patio to enjoy the afternoon sun.
Общение с гостями
We live in our house full time and love having guests over. With some notice, we can organize activities for you ranging from water skiing/wakeboarding behind our ski boat, guided kayaking tours and instruction located at Mill Bay or a hike out to the famous, historic Kinsol Trestle. There are miles of forested trails right outside the door if you think you can keep up with Kevin, an accomplished marathon runner who would love to show off our many sights in the area.

We are a pet friendly family with a dog (Lucy) a cat (Martini) and 5 chickens(fresh eggs!). Clean, well behaved pets are welcome.
We are a health conscious family so no smoking please. We do allow moderate drinking and I have been known to have the odd cigar around the campfire with a nice glass of Scotch.
Married 27 years to Cindy. Both of us love the outdoors which is why we have lived here for 20 years. Water/snow skiing, running, hiking, kayaking and all the above while we are RVing on and around this beautiful Vancouver Island. I am a highways maintenance road foreman and Cindy is a registered nurse. We are both very health conscious with a big backyard garden and live chickens so we can eat as local and organically as possible. We don't travel abroad very often, why would we when there is so much to do literally right outside our doorstep. We will welcome you with open arms and with a little information can either lead or steer you in the direction that most interests you. If you are just looking for somewhere to lay your hat that is both comfortable and homey, we will respect your privacy.
Come as a guest, leave as a friend with The Searles!
