Description :

This walk on pebble beachfront is just under 1 acre in size and has 98 feet of true waterfront. I say true waterfront because in Quatsino some of the properties are Esplanade frontage, meaning a road separates the property from the water front. In this case, this property is a true example of oceanfront property.


The property is fairly flat and level with just a slight slope toward the water. It is ideal for gardens, shops or lawn play areas etc.


A rail and carriage system is in place for pulling your boat in and out of the water. Currently one of the rails has been bent and it needs to be replaced in order for the system to function. A rail is on site but it needs to be installed in order to be operational again.


The 2,500± ft2 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom home (1,722 ft2 on main and 837 ft2 up) was originally constructed around 1910 according to BC assessment records. In 1995 a reconstruction project began and is still being worked on today. Most, if not all, of the major works has been completed. The interior finishing is at various stages of completion. If you are a Handy Man this is the perfect opportunity to add value with your own sweat equity. If you are looking to drop your bags this is your opportunity to pick up considerable savings and finish the home to your tastes.


The home features large open spaces on both the main area and 2nd floor loft. Two of the bedrooms have en-suites and of course amazing ocean views from almost every room in the house.


Hydro, telephone, satellite TV and internet are all available. The home is very well insulated and its primary heat source is radiant baseboard heat with a wood stove back-up.


The domestic water source is a license on Hooser Creek. It is a gravity fed system.

Recreation :

Fishing
Quatsino is one of the last great uncrowded fishing areas left on Vancouver Island. Salmon run offshore from June thru September with the famous Marble River springs that that come right into Quatsino and can be caught within a kilometer of your dock. 30 - 40 lb spring salmon are commonly caught in and around Quatsino. After the springs are gone the Coho roll in late summer and last till early October. In addition there is spectacular halibut, lingcod and rockfish fishing inshore and offshore throughout the year. As if that wasn’t enough the rivers and lakes around Quatsino are loaded with cutthroat, steelhead and dolly varden.


Diving
The West Coast is well known for its diversity of underwater life and some of the most incredible scuba diving in BC can be done in Quatsino Sound.


Caving
Some of this landscape’s mysteries lie tucked away inside the vaulted domes of underground caverns. A float in a sea kayak on an open sound, or deep inside the Quatsino cave system, be prepared to experience a blend of connectedness and jubilation, isolation and terror, when adventuring here. One thing is guaranteed: at the end of the day, you’ll sleep well!


Camping
Campsites and a boat launch are located in the mill town of Port Alice, on Neroutsos Inlet, where you’ll find full facilities for exploring the profusion of sheltered inlets in Quatsino Sound. The Spencer Cover Recreation Site is situated in Koprino Harbour on the north shore of Quatsino Sound and has 11 campsites, a boat launch and boat dock.


Kayaking, canoeing, fishing and wildlife viewing are popular activities in the sheltered waters of Neroutsos, Holberg and Rupert Inlets that surround Quatsino. Quatsino Sound is a very popular sea kayaking route, served by a campground in the estuary.

Area Data :

Quatsino
Population: approximately 90. The tiny and picturesque hamlet of Quatsino is one of the earliest settlements on North Vancouver Island. The off-the-beaten-track community was first built in the late 1800s, when the BC government issued Crown grants to attract new settlers to the Quatsino Sound wilderness area.


Quatsino Sound is a huge sound that leads in from the Pacific Ocean, almost separating the north island region. Quatsino was once the hub of Quatsino Sound, when all travel was by boat.


Quatsino is known for commercial fishing, logging and eco-tourism, but employment is scarce in a community so small and many of the residents commute daily or weekly to nearby Port Hardy and Port McNeill to work. Facilities include a church and post office. In addition to land based phone lines Quatsino has full cellular reception. High speed internet to be available to all residents.
