Overview

Galiano Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms 1 1/2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Located on Active Pass, the spectacular marine passage separating Galiano and Mayne islands, InTheBluff - Galiano’s Oceanside Log House offers one of the most stunning outlooks in the Southern Gulf Islands. The area is known for its strong currents, often turbulent waters and array of wildlife - look out to eagles soaring, seals, sea lions and otters frolicking in the swirling currents and orca whales in their natural element. Even humpback whales pass by on occasion. Breathe the island air.

InTheBluff is a very unique and wonderful escape, an artisan log home atop an oceanfront cliff and amongst over 15 private acres characterized by Garry oaks, Arbutus, Douglas fir and Cedar trees. The beautiful log home has all the modern amenities one could desire, including Wi/Fi & HD TV. Two bedrooms (each with queen size beds) offer comfort and separation. The master is upstairs with a private balcony overlooking Active Pass. InTheBluff very comfortably accommodates up to four.

InTheBluff’s kitchen is well equipped, featuring a country stove and oven, microwave and dishwasher. Cuddle by the Tulikivi (soap stone) wood burning fireplace, lounge on the deck with a good book,

For the avid nature explorers, reaching the gorgeous ¼ mile long beach below is particularly convenient as the Matthews Point Beach Access trail is immediately adjacent. This is just the beginning though as the Matthews Pont Regional Park Reserve, essentially an extension of InTheBluff, connects directly with Bluffs Park with its array of trials and vistas. Mt. Galiano is also linked by the evolving island trail system - remember your water, good hiking shoes and camera!

InTheBluff is a non-smoking, no pet retreat. The vacation lot home is perfectly situated for some of the best hikes the Gulf Islands have to offer or for just sitting back, breathing the fresh island air and taking in the stunning views any time of the year.

Picturesque Island Escape

  • 5 of 5

In the Bluff met and quickly exceeded my expectations for a Galiano getaway. We rented this beautiful, fully equipped cabin for a couple days with four adults and a baby. There was plenty of space and all the modern amenities needed, all within the charming walls of a clean, cosy log home. The view was second to none as we watched eagles swoop past us and other local birds zipped and hopped by while we lounged on the large front deck. The fireplace and BBQ were superb for later in the evening, when the stars were out in all their glory. The scenery and privacy are simply fantastic. I highly recommend a stay here for a romantic getaway or for bird and nature lovers. Not appropriate or safe for mobile youngsters but worked out great for our infant child. Lawrence, the owner, was an excellent host and his customer service/check ins to make sure we had all we needed were greatly appreciated. I look forward to returning in the not too distant future!

a stunning retreat in the Gulf Islands of British Columbia

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing stay at In the Bluff. The location is spectacular and the log house is just gorgeous, inside and out. It was honestly one of our best trips to the Islands. The hosts are incredibly welcoming, lovely people. We will definitely be back in 2015!

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

We were on Galiano to attend our niece's wedding. The weather was outstanding, dry and hot. Our stay at In the Bluff exceeded our expectations ( which were high)!!! The house is better equipped than most people's homes. High end appliances, every convenience that you could ask for. Who ever cleans does an exceptional job. While on the island, we did visit some of the other guests who were staying in other rental properties, some had a musty smell - not ours - clean and fresh! We would return in a heart beat. The first morning a bit of a surprise when the first ferry crossed - their horns are definitely loud. While sitting on the deck, we saw pods of orcas and a couple of eagles. There is a TV but can honestly say we never turned it on, who needs it with that view. Lawrence ( the owner) was very prompt and professional - he was on the island at a different spot and kindly sent email notices when the orcas were on their way.

In the Bluff is totally private - you will not see or hear anyone. A car is a necessity and there are some good hiking trails right from the house. If you need to recharge - this is the spot - loved it.

Gorgeous retreat

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful log cottage is an absolute delight. There is nothing lacking in the provisions provided for a relaxing, carefree time-away. The scenery is stunning, and sharing this woodland space with deer and eagles and a multitude of other birds makes this a nature's paradise. The house is exceptionally clean, the kitchen well stocked, the extra touches are many and make it feel like home.

Breathtaking views, idyllic setting. What more could you want?

  • 5 of 5

This secluded log house is beautifully appointed inside and out. It is an idyllic spot for get-aways, with hiking trails right outside your back door and a beach down below. And for the laziness-inclined, there's an awesome deck with unsurpassed views of Active Pass. A drinkie on deck while watching ferries passing by is a good choice here.

It simply does not get any better than this cabin, and communicating with the property owner was a real pleasure, he provided so much good information on things to do around and about Galiano, plus was instantly available with answers to any questions I had.

The pictures shown do not do this property justice, it is even more beautiful than shown.

Our visit in March was great even with semi-iffy weather. I can only imagine how wonderful it must be on warm sunny days in summer. Will be returning, and often.
