WATERFRONT PRIVATE PARADISE

Galiano Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Cottage (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Panabode cedar home with large wrap around deck sits on 4.5 acres of waterfront lawn, Cedars and Doug Firs in total privacy. There is also a deep dock and room for mooring.

Plus there's a separate one bedroom/1 bath/kitchen/ living room cottage available near the edge of the woods. Inquire if desired.

The sunsets from the West facing deck are utterly gorgeous and go on for hours in the summer months. The property is approachable by car, sail or power boat and seaplane and has a deep dock that accommodates a yacht or sailboat. There's power and water on the dock.

There's a marina with gas pump, restaurant and marine store within walking distance. Every bedroom has a spectacular view. The stone fireplace services the living room on one side and the kitchen on the other. The house is 2 levels.

Special is an understatement. A Pacific Northwest Paradise.

About Donna D

I was introduced to the island by close friends who live there and bought this pure cedar waterfront panabode house the minute it came on the market. It was built with loving care and superb taste by a lovely Dutch couple. I am the second owner. This is my soul place but because work takes me away from the island I rent it out sparingly. Everyone who has stayed has appreciated how special this place is.

Donna D purchased this house in 1990

Why Donna D chose Galiano Island

There's nothing like it in all my travels. The house is tongue and groove cedar. No interior walls, Cedar is 8 ' thick and glows. And it smells wonderful. Its like being outside and inside at the same time.

What makes this house unique

The house and the cottage sit on 4.5 acres of private, blissful waterfront. And the deck with loungers and dining faces to the west with hours of summer sunsets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Travel is my passion. This place was fabulously beautiful and lived up to its description and my expectations. It was totally private, had a view I'll never forget, a house with every comfort, great bed and linens and walks galore starting right out the front door. Take the beach walk at low tide and easy access as grass goes right down to it. I'm definitely coming back and bringing my sister and niece next time. There's also a cottage for an extended family get together. Wonderful!

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the main house -it was a great set-up for us! We had plenty of room in the house, enjoyed eating dinner on the deck, and reading on the dock: we loved the peaceful setting. My husband and two adult sons (20 and 22) and one friend boated over from Vancouver right to the dock- I took the ferry so we were able to explore the Gulf Islands by boat -and Galiano by boat and car. The location is great-we have family on Vancouver Island so we were even able to have day visitors -some who boated right to the dock and some who came by ferry! (including my Dad and Uncle) My one son and his friend loved biking and running right from the property. It is an easy walk to Montague Harbour -which has some groceries and a cafe. I highly recommend staying here for a relaxing get away- and try the Galiano Roasting Company coffee-mmmm!

Beautiful home on Galiano Island

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful place! The weather was perfect, everyone loved the house & harbor and the island itself. We rented both the main house and the small cottage. The wildlife & scenery was spectacular and we took advantage of many activities including chartering a boat (saw the orcas up near the north end of the island), a forest & beach hike with the nature conservatory guide, zodiac boat tour to Saturna for lunch, fishing for salmon in the ocean, kayaking in the harbor and a spa day at the Galiano Inn. Some of the creatures we saw from the dock & in the garden including river otters (family of five), minke, raccoons, red fox, deer, bald eagles, seals, hummingbirds, starfish & seastars. We didnt even have to leave the property to see these lovely animals! Oh and the sunsets were unbelievable.
We hope to go back soon, and often!

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5
A perfect place to relax while enjoying the many wonderful attributes of a wonderful island. The house is lovely and rests in the midst of a small patch of forrest with several old growth trees that were 600 years old! The ocean views were stunning. Thank you for a wonderful time.

Came with my girlfriend on her sailboat from Vancouver along with her brother and his boyfriend.
Had a blast! It rained 2 out of 7 days but there's a fab huge fireplace set in stone wall that opens up to living room on one side and kitchen on the other and adequate stereo system. Paradise in more ways than one:)

We celebrated my husband's birthday here this year. Our 2 grown children joined us for 3 of our 7 days. It was perfect. My son loves to cook and the kitchen was suited to a gourmet. My daughter loves to hike and wonderful trails begin ( so she said) at the end of the drive. The view from the living room, deck and master bedroom was just as the photo showed it. My husband and I had never stayed in a panabode (all cedar) house. It was lovely to be surrounded by pure healthy beautiful cedar. We hope to come back next year and make this a birthday ritual.
