LUXURY ON MAYNE ISLAND ~ 4 BR/3 BA ~ WEST FACING OCEAN VIEWS

Mayne Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8+)

If you love privacy, afternoon sun, sunsets, stars at night in a forest setting, ocean views, mountains, big sky, eagles, and deer, then this is the place for you.

Mayne Island is the most historical of the Gulf Islands situated between Vancouver and Victoria. There are about 1100 full-time residents.

Our 2800sqft house was built in 2008 and features glass, wood, granite and slate throughout. A unique feature is the bridge over the living and dining area to a spectacular covered upper deck space with breathtaking views of Active Pass and neighbouring islands.

The property affords our guests complete seclusion and privacy nestled in acres of local cedars and firs with unlimited space for your relaxing vacation. It's the ideal place for couples, families, and gatherings of all kinds.

The property has west-facing ocean views of Active Pass and the mountains of Vancouver Island beyond. The vast, expansive surroundings make for a wildlife/bird-watcher's paradise! This property and home have been described by guests as 'Bliss!'.

The home's main floor master bedroom features a solid mahogany canopy bed, with private access to the main deck. The king-sized bedroom on the lower floor featues a gorgeous Virginian antique solid wrought iron bed. All four bedrooms are very tastefully decorated and furnished in a west-coast style with forest and ocean views.

There are five bicycles on site for use. A picturesque swimming beach is a short bike ride or walk away. Visitors have loved exploring the numerous bays and sandstone caves while their children collect sea shells and play in the sand. Two grocery stores, a wonderful bakery, pub and several restaurants on the island all add to the convenience of the island.

Cable TV, Wireless Internet, a fully functioning pub-style wet bar, games room and piano are all here for you and your family to enjoy!

You can get to Mayne Island (Village Bay) by taking a BC Ferry from Victoria (Swartz Bay) or Vancouver (Tsawwassen). See BC Ferries website for schedules for the Southern Gulf Islands.

Click on the calendar for up-to-date availability. All four bedrooms have real beds with quality mattresses (1 King and 3 Queens). For larger groups after the beds are full guests usually bring their own camping mattresses and sleeping bags.

Many guests have commented that the house has exceeded their expectations.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Wow. That is one word to describe the property.



I and my family stayed for 5 peaceful nights on Mayne Island, thanks to the great surroundings provided by Mr Peter Lane.



The place was clean and very well appointed with every amenity that you could need for a short or long stay. The keyless entry was perfect for us, so each person could come and go as they pleased. The entertainment systems were in perfect working order and very much up to date. All the beds were very comfortable and had the advantage of the electric heat in each bedroom, which meant that everyone could be nice and snuggled in at the perfect temperature. There are water issues on the island due to supply, and it is advised to conserve water. We loved each of the showers, and my whole family is not really one to take large baths so we didn't find it an issue at all, to be mindful of water use. The upstairs deck gave a bit more ocean view and defiantly provided another nice sitting spot out of the rain. I felt the price of 4 bedrooms with ocean views was great.



My kids(6 and 4) loved the playhouse and teeter-totter as well as watching the ferries go by at dinner time from any one of the two decks. There is a horseshoe pit and bocce set to use, and a snack supply basket that I used to keep the kids entertained in the playhouse was super fun.

It was close enough (1.6 km)to the Village Bakery that my father was able to go and walk down and swap tales in the morning with all the local folks. You could walk to get fresh eggs from the farmers nearby, or for a pint in the pub at Miners Bay. My wife went to yoga at the Community Centre that was less then five minutes away. At dusk every night, deer would walk down the hill and across the property to feed. It was fun to watch them. The BBQ was clean and we used it every night to cook on. Due to the weather being rather wet, we loved the wood burning stove. It was idyllic to sit with a book and have the warm glow of the fire. Pure relaxation.



... this was by far the best! Thanks so much for a great place.

LOVELY HOUSE

We had a really lovely stay. The house is gorgeous...it really does have everything you could want/need. We especially enjoyed the games room downstairs - the kids did NOT want to leave. Thanks Peter! We hope to come back again soon.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of 8 adults and stayed for 2 nights to get away from the city and ring in the new year together. The place was perfect. The bedrooms are huge and very private and there are bathrooms on all levels. We got good use of the pool table and dart board and enjoyed the bar area on the ground level. We also found the huge kitchen perfectly suitable for cooking a few great meals together.

CHRISTMAS IN NOVEMBER

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough about how perfect this house was for 6 friends to spend "Christmas in November". There was even a Christmas tree and the deck was all lit up. We were so comfortable and had a wonderful "Christmas" dinner from the fully equipped kitchen, at the super big table for 10. The games room provided many laughs as we attempted to excel at pool and darts. love the bar! Beds totally comfy. Thanks Peter

FABULOUS HOUSE WITH GREAT SPACES - PERFECT FOR SUMMER OR WINTER

  • 5 of 5
Our group of five adults and two kids found this a perfect house for a warm Labour Day weekend getaway. Beautiful house in lovely spot, fabulously designed and super high-spec. Great communal spaces and beautiful decks, the kids loved the garden and treehouse, the grownups loved... everything!
We all want to come back in winter as the downstairs recreation room/pub(!), plus great DVD library and big-screen TVs, would mean this would be a great place to be holed up in the cold as well (maybe minus the kids in that case!)
Thanks Peter for a lovely stay.

FAMILY WEDDING

  • 5 of 5
This was a great beautiful place for our family to gather in between wedding events on the island. The kitchen was well stocked and it was large enough for us to enjoy time together. We all wished we had more time to spend on the island in the beauty and comfort of this cottage.

PERFECT EASTER WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
This is an amazing property which exceeded all our expectations. The property was exceptionally clean on our arrival and looked even better than the photos. It was very spacious for our party of 4 adults and 2 children (8 and 10) and catered for all ages. The tree house and play equipment in the garden was a huge hit with the kids, allowing the adults to relax in the beautiful surroundings. The beds were super comfy and all rooms very tastefully decorated. The kitchen was well stocked with all the essentials and provided all the equipment needed to cook whatever you wanted.

We had fantastic weather which enabled us to enjoy the great outdoor space. (fire pit,BBQ, hammock, ample outdoor furniture) The sunsets were beautiful from the deck. The nearby coves are within easy walking distance and are breathtakingly beautiful.

We all said this was the best house we had ever stayed in and were sad to leave after a wonderful and relaxing long weekend. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing break - it is lovely and secluded, but easy enough to get to facilities. The owner was always extremely helpful in answering any questions we had, and the whole booking process was very smooth and problem-free.
