Grocery Store
“Qualicum Foods is our local grocery store a quick 10 minute drive from the Cottage. Coombs (Goats on the roof) is a 16 minute drive from the Cottage. Yes it is a tourists destination but further us the sidewalk past the indoor market is the root cellar. Open March through December they have an amazing market loaded with fruits and vegetables at a bargain price. Carrots, potatoes, onion, peaches, apples, berries, broccoli !! You name it, it's there and very inexpensive ”

“Qualicum Beach Memorial is one of Canada’s most scenic golf courses, with views of Mt. Arrowsmith, the Coastal Mountain Range and the Georgia Strait. This beautiful seaside course is the driest on Vancouver Island, lending it to year round play. To complement our 9 hole golf course, we have a pro shop staffed by CPGA professionals, full service restaurant, grass driving range, and practice green with bunker.”
