Sea Meadows is a 21-acre estate on the 'Queen of the Gulf Islands' -- Gabriola Island. Gabriola is just a 20-minute ferry ride from Nanaimo; and once on the island, Sea Meadows is less than one mile from the ferry dock. The estate consists of four homes that are connected by a paved, oval driveway -- in a very private, peaceful, and pretty park-like setting. The main residence is set back 1/3 of a mile from the rental homes, to ensure maximum privacy for all. There are three rental homes. The Round House is approximately 300 feet, respectively, from cozy Descanso Bay. Only a lightly traveled road separates the estate from the natural cove and beachfront. The beach is a typical British Columbia beach -- both rocky and sandy, yet flat. You can enjoy beach combing, swimming, and even launching and anchoring your boat in the bay.
The entire estate is walled in on 3 sides by trees, with a concrete entrance, & entrance pillars in front. We are also able to accommodate 35 & more guests. The property is available for short-term and long-term, as well as weekly rentals. It is perfect for a corporate retreat, family reunion, wedding, etc. Of course as listed each house is available for individual rental. All are individually private.
PROPERTY IS ALSO PERFECT FOR A FAMILY REUNION, WEDDING, CORPORATE RETREAT, OR ANY LARGE FUNCTION. The main house (though not available for over night rental) is perfect for that large reception. With a deck area of more than 5000 square feet, as well as the more than 3000 ft of living room, kitchen and dinning areas it has easily handled large functions, and parties for more than 100. Smaller more intimate events are also welcome. In addition there is plenty of parking for a large number of vehicles. The 3 rental houses together have accommodated more than 20 quests comfortably. We have had the occasional RV, & or tents that our clients have brought to accommodate overflow. Children love to pitch tents around the property. We have a barbecue large enough for any occasion. Staff, catering, and entertainment may also be arranged.
For the youngsters, we provide a children's playground with a trampoline, basketball hoop, slide, teeter-totter, fort, and swings. The 1/3 mile of paved circular driveway also makes for nice bike riding pleasures.
