HighView overlooking Maple Bay

Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 3
Duncan, Vancouver Island, British Columbia
HighView is a modern home with an exceptional view of the ocean and Gulf Islands. Eagles, heron, many birds, deer with babies, and bunnies wander through the forested property. There is a lovely swimming beach at the bay and kayaking, diving and sailing are very popular. Marinas and Yacht Club are further down the road as well as an air service to Vancouver. There are pubs and restaurants within a five minute drive. Shopping in Duncan is a 10 minute drive away and has every store you need. The area is famous for mountain biking and hiking trails. An hour south over the Malahat drive will take you to Victoria and easy day trips can be taken to west coast beaches. A lovely place to rest and relax. Don't forget to bring your own apples to feed the deer!
