Tunnel Hill - Oceanfront Estate - Central Qualicum - Private Beach - Kayaks

Family-friendly Qualicum Beach cottage in Regional District of Nanaimo with water park
Tunnel Hill is special. A private 3 1/2 acre oceanfront estate tucked away in one of Qualicum Beach's most sought-after locations. And one of only nine beachfront properties in the Qualicum area with the coveted "Estate Residential" designation. Located almost next door to much-loved Milner Gardens and Eaglecrest Golf Club and just minutes from the charming town centre of Qualicum Beach, the Memorial Golf Club and the Qualicum Beach oceanfront promenade. At Tunnel Hill you are so close to everything yet you will feel as if you are at your very own beach retreat. Enter down the 1/4 mile, forest-lined private drive to Tunnel Hill Cottage, a 2,000 sq. ft. beach home with rustic charm, original old growth Douglas fir floors, large stone fireplace, wood burning stove and even 2 hand carved Western red cedar totem poles. Your family and friends will immediately feel at home. Outdoors you will discover park-like grounds , woods, grassed areas, a secluded garden retreat and "The Tunnel" For which the property is named. A modern marvel, with pathway and lighting, the Tunnel leads to the "picture perfect" beach below. Enjoy panoramic 180 degree views to the east and west and across the Strait of Georgia (Salish Sea) to the Coast Mountains. Relax, go swimming, kayaking, paddleboarding, or walk for miles on the beautiful sand beach and explore the ocean tide pools. In the evening the sunsets are spectacular. And later gather around the large beachfront fire pit, perfect for an evening campfire and marshmallow roast. Tunnel Hill is "what memories are made of....."

5/5 Excellent

More than impressed
Our 2 families of 4 stayed at Tunnel Hill for a week this summer and it was fabulous! We chose this property for the excellent reviews and we were not disappointed. The pictures do not do it justice. The house was well stocked, the linens were soft, and it was clean clean clean (very important to us, as we stayed during Covid). Janet was there to show us the house upon arrival, and when we noticed there were only 3 wine glasses later, she was quick to respond and drop off 2 new sets within a couple hours. Mike came to show us the property...the awesome tunnel down to the beach, the golf cart, campfire, the kayaks etc. Such a beautiful and special property. The kids could ride their bikes up the long driveway, they played basketball and bocce. But of course most of our days were spent at the beach. We made so many special memories at Tunnel Hill. Hope to return some day!
