St. Andrews is one of only two self-contained cottage style accommodation on the beach in Qualicum Beach. It is made up of 7 cottages with 1 or 2 bedrooms plus fully supplied kitchen, outdoor picnic area and each with a full beach view. The property is still full of trees and at the outer limits of Qualicum, so although shops and restaurants are within walking distance, the feeling is of being out in the country. The cottages were built during the 1930's and 40's and still retain the charm of the era. The beach it sits on offers endless walks, the best one is to the north and ending at a land preserve at the Qualicum River Estuary. Wildlife abounds in these waters, both mammals and birds. Watching ferries and cruise ships between Vancouver or Washington State to Alaska is part of the charm. Hurry though. The cottages are for sale and may not be there much longer, if a developer who favours large hotels should buy the place. The tide goes far, far out at low tide, offering endless beach exploration.

My family has been visiting St. Andrew's for over 25 years and always have a wonderful time.

The cottages are almost 75 years old (I think) but are very well maintained and absolutely spotless. There are about 7 (?) cottages set on a very large piece of land, right on the beach. We have stayed in most of the cottages over the years and have found all of them have their charm.

This is not the place to go if you are looking for luxury--but if you are looking for clean accommodation in a beautiful location--with opportunities to walk, explore the seashore, have beach fires, etc. this is the place for you. The Village of Qualicum is lovely and has lots of interesting shops and restaurants.

Final note--my daughter is now 24 and has travelled to many locations over the years--her favourite memories are still of St. Andrew's.

We stayed in the bachelor cottage that is pet friendly and walk out to the beach. It is cramped because of a big old stove/heater that cannot be turned off because it heats the hot water for two units. Windows have to be kept open to reduce the stifling heat. Furnishings have seen better days, the curtains are on a wire, there were cobwebs in the bathroom and the stained shower made it feel unclean. Bring your own pillow! The upside is hearing sea lions at dawn for a winter rate of $80.

St Andrews Lodge and cottages..

.We stayed in the first of the 8 cabins built in 1938.Very clean small but comfortable 2 bedroom with our two small dogs.

This was a Great place for our dogs and situated right on the beach!..

For $95 dollars a night for Oceanfront clean quiet and serene I thought it good value!

There is alot of history behind these cottages and I even got to meet Miss Little,her parents built the cabins and she is now in her 80"s.
