Escape to a beachy paradise without breaking the bank. Despite what you might think, it doesn't need to be expensive to enjoy an oceanfront getaway. There is a budget-friendly mini beach shack in B.C. where you can fall asleep to the sound of the crashing surf.
The Sea Shack on Mussel Beach is a hidden gem on Vancouver Island that makes for a wonderful weekend retreat. The off-the-grid beach house can comfortably sleep up to two people and would be perfect for couples looking to escape the city.
Located on a private beach, you might never want to leave the deck where you can enjoy a view of the water.
Plus, the front door is only seconds away from the splashing waves, making it very convenient to go swimming or enjoy a romantic stroll along the coast.
There is a hammock so you can relax in the sunshine with a good book, and an outdoor fire pit perfect for roasting marshmallows. As it is away from the city, you'll also be able to enjoy stargazing.
Inside the adorable seaside tiny house, you'll find a queen bed in the upstairs loft, plus a double futon on the main floor. You'll want to spend most of your time outdoors, though.
There is also a small bar where you can sip cocktails and enjoy the view.
The experience is similar to glamping, so don't expect to find a bathroom or full kitchen. Instead, there is an outhouse, and you have free access to the showers at the nearby campground.
The outdoor kitchen has everything you need to prepare a tasty meal. It has a camp stove, water for drinking and washing dishes, and mugs.
To help keep you warm the unit also comes with a propane heater.
There is a two-night requirement to book this Airbnb, and it is available from $137.50 a night for two people.
