BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE ON WATERFRONT PROPERTY, GABRIOLA ISLAND

Gabriola Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Pilot Bay Guest Studio is a recently built, post-and-beam cottage located on the same property as Pilot Bay Guest House on beautiful Gabriola Island, British Columbia. It offers a quiet retreat in a beautiful forest of majestic cedars and douglas fir. It has every convenience for up to four people who want to be able to do their own cooking, laundry, etc. (If you have more than 4 people in your group please call us BEFORE reserving to discuss whether we can accomodate you.)

We are open from April until Canadian Thanksgiving. Special arrangement might be made outside these dates.

The Studio is located 3 km from the Gabriola Ferry from Nanaimo and can be easily reached by car or by plane. A float plane will take you directly to Vancouver Airport in 15 minutes, and your hosts will be happy to arrange a taxi.

Check out by 11:00 am. Check-in between 4:00 and 6:00 pm unless previously arranged. No check-in after 9:00 pm.

We require a deposit equal to one-half the total payment at time of booking. If you are required to change or cancel up to 60 days before arrival, we will credit you with 100% of the deposit. If you are required to cancel within 60 days of arrival, we will return the deposit if we are able to rent the cottage to others. Please inquire as to what cleaning we ask that you do before departure.

We are two retired lawyers chasing our dream of retiring to a bed and breakfast (Pilot Bay Guesthouse) and a cottage on one of the most beautiful locations on earth.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2000

We built our cottage from douglas fir milled on the property, in a classic coachhouse style. We came here for many weekends while we were still working in Vancouver. We chose the location because of the beautiful waterfront, the ease of access, and the flora and fauna of the island. Gabriola is an island of the arts, with music and artisans' studios everywhere.

The cottage is a quick drive, ride or walk to the Gabriola ferry. It sits on a waterfront property just behind the Pilot Bay Guest House and there is easy access to Pilot Bay down a few steps carved in the rocks. At low tide we can walk forever. We are visited by eagles, herons, hawks, seagulls, robins, various woodpeckers, hummingbirds, the list could go on forever. Seals and otters are in the bay, and ocassionally whales pass by.

A wonderful cottage on Gabriola Island

We were pleased to be able to spend another relaxing long weekend in this delightful cottage. The cottage is immaculately clean, cozy and well appointed and is located in a forest setting a few steps from the water's edge. It offers the opportunity for a completely private getaway or a stay full of island activities. The owners are travellers and outdoor enthusiasts and are well informed about all of the island's activities, restaurants and artisans. We highly recommend this cottage to anyone considering a stay on beautiful Gabriola! The island and its residents exude a peaceful West Coast charm which will bring you back again and again.

Dear Suzanne and Dick: What a magical month I have experienced on this beautiful island. Thank you for helping me to make my "experimental" retirement a positive experience. Your wonderful cottage has been the perfect place to relax after my days of exploring and adventuring. A beautiful island filled with warm and welcoming people. I hope one day to call it home.
