CHARMING HOSPITALITY

  • 5 of 5
We were here with my sister and her husband as well as our 9m old who stayed in our room since we were attending a wedding up island. Cathy and Peter moved some furniture out of our room to make sure there was room for a travel crib and they were both extremely friendly and a great source of information. The place is beautifully situated on the beach and we saw Orcas and Sea Otters by the ocean. Place was clean and was stocked, would highly recommend this cottage is you plan to be on Galiano.

A PLACE TO COME BACK TO... AGAIN AND AGAIN!

  • 5 of 5
We spent four days at Seastar Cottage during the last Easter Holidays. The hosts, Cathy and Justin, were unbeleivably welcoming and helpful.We were even given some homemade granola!
The cottage was outstanding and well equipped, tastefully and lovingly furnished.We felt at home right away! The bedding was beautiful and the kitchen had everything you could think of.
The cottage was sparkling clean!!
Upon request our amazing hosts bought us basic food supplies for our first day. Furthermore, there is a very nice grocery store nearby, where you can get everything you need.
Our highlights on the island were hiking to Bodega Ridge with breathtaking views, a guided kayaking tour along the sculpted sandstone coast with dozens of seals and sunbathing on the wide beaches of the island.
The house has access to the picturesque stone beach. From the gazebo you can watch sunrises and sunsets (try to spot a whale!) and everything actually looks as beautiful and dreamlike as on the pictures, all taken by Cathy.
For dinner we would recommend to go to la Berengerie, a french restaurant only a 7 minute drive away. The food there was too good to be true. Extremely fresh and tasty (the breadrolls were still warm,straight out of the oven!),with very kind and friendly service.
It brought me and my family so much joy to experience Galiano Island at the Seastar Cottage.
We would come back in a heartbeat!

AN IDYLLIC RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Seastar Cottage with our visitors from the UK. It was perfect for two couples. Justin and Cathy were generous and helpful hosts from our first contact by phone and throughout our stay. The cottage is new and bright and tastefully furnished. Everything we needed was there. We enjoyed meals on the deck surrounded by grounds and forest with views of the water. The entire property is quiet and secluded. We had direct access to the rocky seashore through Justin and Cathy's property. We felt right at home here and hope to return one day.

GREAT HOLIDAY!

  • 5 of 5
Snow in Edmonton, and our thoughts go back to our wonderful holiday on Galiano Island. We stayed in Seastar cottage for 12 nights. Our friends stayed with us for the first week, and Cathy and Justin accomodated all of us in their lovely home and the cottage. We cycled, kayaked, hiked and swam, visited the market, local galleries and tried the local dining. Cathy and Justin were an unlimited source of information about the island, and we truly enjoyed visiting with them. The cottage had everything we needed (and more), including a great view of the ocean.
Thanks Cathy and Justin, we hope to be back soon.

PEACEFUL, BEAUTIFUL, INTIMATE

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I spent 5 outstanding days at Seastar Cottage just prior to the Labour Day weekend. The place is truly a gem, with a fantastic view of the ocean, a beautiful and meticulously kept fruit orchard, tastefully decorated interior and a fully equipped modern kitchen.

The owners who live nearby are very respectful of their guests' privacy and do everything they can to enhance the quality of the stay, including providing fantastic tips for day trips and even sharing home-grown produce. They are friendly, well-rounded and genuine people who are an absolute pleasure to talk to.

Definitely hoping to come back some day and encourage everyone to experience this for themselves!

WONDERFUL FAMILY RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
Our family just returned from a fantastic stay at the Seastar cottage. We had our 2 year old along for the ride and she had a blast watching the resident chickens and the deer wander through the property. The cottage is immaculate and very comfortable and the owners were great - very accessible and full of great tips about the island. We particularly enjoyed the sandy beach and some of the easier hikes. Local dining was a real treat, too! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the cottage for a family getaway.
