I have a passion for the ocean and our beautiful Gulf Islands. It gives me great pleasure to share these treasures with my guests.

Our property is very private but also close to a store and restaurant. It is possible to arrive at our home and not have to take the car out for supplies.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed at this property many times over the years....for private getaways with my wife, trips with the boys, special occasions with friends, large family get togethers, fishing trips...and I can truly say that it has become my " home away from home..." The property is clean and well maintained with gorgeous views of the ocean and islands. Set in the trees up from the water and with its own private dock ( which is unique and a real treat), the house and property make you feel like you are staying in your own cozy private island retreat, yet you are only minutes away from all sorts of facilities...silva bay marina, with a pub and restaurant, liquor store and small grocery are right next store, but you would never know it...until you want to visit...best of all the host, Dennis, is there to greet you when you arrive and give you a complete tour of the house and property, and parts of the island if you wish...He will even give you all the tips on local fishing and boating if you so desire. We have been fishing and prawning with him many times in his boat, often with family members, and this has often turned into the highlight ( with associated pictures and storytelling) of the trip! There is nothing so tasty as fresh ling cod or prawns! Overall a superb island holiday..totally relaxing but with all the resources....I highly recommend!

GABRIOLA TREASURE - A PLACE TO RECHARGE, HAVE AN ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE, AND GAIN A NEW STATE OF CALM.

  • 5 of 5
This comfy cottage in Sylvia Bay on Gabriola Island is well worth writing about. I’ve been to Sylva Bay before having arrived by sailboat, which is also an incredible trip as is the short ferry ride from Nanaimo. However this time I took a short 20 minute flight with Tofino Air from Vancouver’s south terminal direct to Silver Bay Marina was well worth the money ($87) and a fun part of the experience. Flying on a float plane for the first time was a hoot, I had the hot seat up front, we flew low and the islands all around are just amazing.
Nestled in the trees just a short walk from the float plane base at the marina is this comfy cottage. With two bedrooms upstairs, the master suite had a snuggly down duvet with fluffy pillows, and a quaint view of the bay out on the little breakfast balcony. The second bedroom has bunk beds for the kids and a double for mom and dad. A shared bathroom which has a magnificent soaker tub with a classic italian basin and fixtures. On the main level which was meant as the gathering and chatting place has a toasty fireplace, lazy girl recliners and a sink in to sofa. Sipping on a bottle or two of Merlot we were entertained by the guitar strums and vocals of our talented friends. The stylish kitchen has more Italian marble and fixtures with everything you need to prepare a fest. For a little extra warmth the wood burning stove just off the kitchen had a stoked fire which added to the comfort.
The decor thru out had unique nautical collectables mixed old with new, every little corner has something interesting to gaze upon and take your imagination flying, how wonderful and full of surprises it all was.
The other two spacious size bedrooms on the main level have comfy queen size beds along with the second bathroom and,did I mention a second soaker tub AMAZING! After an evening of good food, fabulous company and a warm fire, I awoke to a sunny morning with just a bit of the fog rolling in, truly a photographers dream. The home seems to wrap itself around you with a warm feeling like being cuddled.
"COMFY is the simple single word I would use to describe this home, to top all that off, a great view of all the moored sailboats with their stunning reflections in the water. Stepping out the glass doors onto the huge deck which overlooked the bay, I could stroll through the garden, down to the dock and watch starfish playing between the rocks, what a wonderful way to spend a quiet moment in thought...An escape highly recommended.
