The natural setting of this hideaway is best described by its name, Serenity. This wonderful log cabin is nestled in a mature forest along a 700 foot shoreline of the Saanich Inlet but only 30 minutes from downtown Victoria. It is so close to all amenities but offers isolation to explore the ocean and surrounding forest alone with your family and friends. Bring your bird book and binoculars, bald eagles nest nearby and hunt for salmon while perched on the property's edge. Seals and sea otters play in the ocean below. Your stay in this quiet forest hideaway provides a front-row seat of the ocean below while sitting on the large deck sipping local refreshments and cooking dinner on the BBQ. Light a fire in the fireplace at night, watch year round resident Hummingbirds speed by, dig for clams on the beach, look at the many purple star fish on the water's edge or take a hike through the woods. This cabin offers a west coast, seaside tranquility that is hard to compare.The high ceiling, open concept cabin was built with logs harvested on the property and will sleep many or few. In the large loft, a queen bed awaits your company with extra sleeping area for accompanying children. A library desk over-looking the kitchen provides a quiet isolation for writing that letter to a friend. The main floor has a queen bed in the bedroom area plus a double and single futon in the front room. The eating area kitchen by the fireplace seats 6 in front of the fireplace beside a window view of the ocean. Your cabin has beach access to a 60 foot cement dock to launch your kayak or canoe.
