Overview

Galiano Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Loft styled Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

This architecturally designed cottage is situated on 1.5 acres of wonderful waterfront on GALIANO ISLAND!

There is great swimming from a sandstone beach. The Tidal Pool in front of the property is great for the kids - the cottage is just steps away. Being steps from the beach allows you to hear the waves from every room in the house. With accommodation for up to five guests, this two loft-styled bedroom cottage offers very comfort and convenience. For a small extra fee, the 'atilier' or bunk house sleeps four extra guests in bunks.

Fitted with wonderful wood detailing and hardwood floors, this home is an ideal retreat for the family. From the large sundeck you get a close up look at Georgia Strait and all its activity. As well, you have views of Vancouver and from the beach you have a wonderful view of Mount Baker.

Located just four miles from the ferry terminal and two miles from the store. Check-In/Check-Out is arranged to coincide with ferry schedules. Reserve now for your time at this special year round home.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a peaceful, rustic cottage to get away to, this is an excellent choice. Situated right on the water, with a far-away view of Vancouver, a rocky shore offers pleasant walks and views, and lovely forest and moss surrounds. The cabin is very well appointed and cute, and the wrap around deck and wood burning stove were wonderful. It feels very much like borrowing a cottage from a friend. 100% recommend staying here. Only thing lacking is a hot tub!

This cabin is ideal for a couple, or a family with smaller children. Pet friendly. The bedroom is loft style with a double bed and two floor mattresses that would likely not be suitable for adults. It is the wrong season for tennis, but we saw a huge tennis court that looked great.

A few minor issues like the shower not draining well, BBQ being in need of maintenance, no cleaning brush in the kitchen were likely due to being at the end of the season. All very minor.

It says "Check-In/Check-Out is arranged to coincide with ferry schedules." This is misleading, as there are very few ferries and if you do not want to take the 9am one back, a late check-out fee of $50 applies (normal check out at 10:30)

Note that we were initially worried due to the owner communicating from a different email and phone number than listed here and asking for cash-equivalent payment, which ended up being due to them being on a trip & all was okay.

Owner's Response: We are happy that you were able to relax and enjoy Galiano.
The main loft styled bedroom has a QUEEN BED, whereas the second loft area has two single beds on wooden bed frames with hand carved head boards , low to the ground, but off the floor, so that they are suitable for children but are adult sized, if required.
Check in is arranged to be as soon as possible after you arrive on the island to allow you to start enjoying your stay; Check out is generally 10:30. If guests which to use the cottage until the evening ferry departs, a late check fee also makes this an option, so that your stay accommodates your schedule and choice of sailings.

A time to slow down...

  • 5 of 5
My husband and our seven year old son spent our first weekend at this cottage in March, and we will definitely return! Galiano in general is a place to sit back and relax, and this property certainly has everything you need to unwind. It's a beautiful cottage, very well furnished and outfitted. It is even nicer than in the photos. The property is private, right on the water, and the private tennis court is great for tennis and for the kids if they bring their bicycle, scooter, rollerblades, etc. The owners were a dream to deal with, and we would highly recommend this cottage for anyone looking for a get-away. Bonus - it's just one hour from the Mainlaind by ferry - but feels like a million miles away.

Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our island get-a-way and your seaside accommodations. Your beautiful post and beam home exceeded our expectations! You have a slice of paradise and we steeped ourselves in the relaxation that such a retreat offers. The many highlights include, the wrap around windows and deck so your guests can bask in brightness and views, the window seat which invites lounging, the wood-stove for cozy evenings, the ever changing shoreline for exploring and the peace and quiet that lends itself to tranquility!
If guests can peel themselves away, our top three island discoveries were the hikes to Matthew's Beach, Bluff Park and Bellhouse Park.

Not a 2 bedroom

  • 3 of 5
Great cottage on a great waterfront property. Only comment would be regarding sleeping description. This is not a 2 bedroom but an L-shaped loft with one queen size bed and 2 foamies on the floor not separated for any kind of privacy. Would be adequate for a couple with 2 small children. The fifth person would be relegated to another foamie in the window seat on the main level.

Owner's Response: We are pleased you enjoyed the waterfront property . For future travelers please refer to the description details and photos 8 and 9 on the website to view the open plan of the 2 loft styled bedrooms. The larger loft has a queen bed with the smaller loft having 2 twins in fir frames with carved headboards. These beds are low to the ground, safe for young children but are adult sized.

An Excellent Get Away!

  • 5 of 5
My daughters and I had and outstanding week on Galiano. The cottage is beautifully located on the water. The tide pools on the rocks in front of the cottage provieded hours of fun. I fell asleep every night to the sounds of the waves. There is a great view of Vancover and the shipping traffic and I'd recommend bringing along a telescope or binoculars. My dog loved the water as well. We will be back!

A very relaxing holiday retreat!

  • 5 of 5
Great location on the water with fantastic views. Our kids had so much fun playing for hours in the tide pool right in front of the cottage. We enjoyed the beautiful sunrises and the sound of the crashing waves. The tennis court was a nice plus. Its always nice to come to Galiano, where we can slow down and unwind from our busy lives. Thanks so much, we'd definitely like to come again.
