Cortes is part of the Discovery Islands, which are considered the jewels of the British Columbia Coast. They are located midway along the east coast of Vancouver Island near Campbell River. For over a century Cortes Island has been a haven for those independent spirits searching for freedom, a sense of community, a cleaner environment, and unparalleled natural beauty.

This beach home is at the gateway to Desolation Sound Marine Park where the scenery is dramatic and varied, largely unspoiled by urban development. The sparkling waters are home to incredible marine life, oneness with nature is everywhere, offering stunning coastal cruising, whether by kayak or by yacht. Wildlife abounds, making hiking and beachcombing enjoyable anytime of the year. When you arrive on Cortes Island - wilderness, peace and privacy will surround you. The whole environment has a unique and magical beauty that will live on in your memory.

Kayakers Paradise

  • Submitted: May 4, 2010
  • Stayed: Apr 2010
We enjoyed being surrounded by trees & luxuriant ferns. We can look down at the water & see our two kayaks nestled on driftwood next to the red canoe. Launching from our own beach added to our sense of belonging and we enjoyed amazingly glassy water several times during evening paddles. Thank you for a wonderful, restful, invigorating stay.

An Amazing Place

  • Submitted: May 4, 2010
  • Stayed: Jul 2009
It is our last evening here and we are not wanting to leave! What an amazing place, the cabin is just beautiful. You have thought of everything, we were so comfortable. We absolutely fell in love with the island – so beautiful & unspoiled. There are so few places like this left in the world! We are looking forward to our 2 weeks here again next July.

It's rare to find a spot such as this -- as comfortable on an overcast or fog-shrouded day as on a sparkling sunny day. With all the thoughtful touches you've added this place is a comforting sanctuary, a welcome respite from the city.
