ZEN GARDENS BEACH COTTAGE - SAND, SUNSETS & SERENITY ON THE SEASHORE

Cortes Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

A romantic 1-bedroom oceanfront cottage perched above the finest sandy beach on the island. Zen Gardens is a one-of-a-kind holiday home, beautiful designer interior surrounded by harmonious landscaping. Enjoy stunning ocean views from every room, and peer over 2-acres of oriental gardens to catch a glimpse of birdlife attracted to your own private sanctuary, abundant with rare plants, peace, and tranquility. Stroll down the secluded path to 400 ft of secluded beach & explore miles of sand walks along Smelt Bay.

Queen-sized bed with french doors to the waterfront garden make it an ideal retreat for a single person, or a romantic getaway for a couple, and big enough for a small family with 1 or 2 young children sharing the double futon sofa bed in the living room. This is a fabulous holiday cottage for honeymoons and a magical place to celebrate special anniversaries and birthdays. Or simply let nature wrap its arms around you -- rest, rejuvenate, and reclaim your spirit.

GUEST BOOK COMMENTS:

This is an amazing place ... wow such gardens... so unique... you have me stumped as to what plants... and inspired for shade gardens. I have come to Cortes for many years now... and this is the most amazing experience yet... so much more relaxing ... just to have a set-up quiet, private, clean oceanfront nest to retreat to. Much gratitude to you from Gillian

One Hand Clapping in Thundering Silence

  • Submitted: Nov 12, 2012
  • Stayed: Sep 2012
Lovely spot, beautiful, peaceful space. One hand is clapping in thundering silence. We had good adventures, great food at Hollyhock & Squirrel Cove. Paddled our canoe to Shark Spit from the Gorge. Portaged into Carrington Lagoon paddled around to Coulter Bay, and hiked back to get the vehicle. Hiked & paddled into Swim Rock on Hague Lake. Walks on the beach in Smelt Bay. Ripe blackberries adorning every breakfast. Walks and runs on Siskin Trails. Our 8-month-old son found the gardens and sunlight entrancing. We loved the beaches, swims, and trails; we all found joy and renewal. Thank you!

Absolutely Stunning View

  • Submitted: Nov 12, 2012
  • Stayed: Oct 2012
We had a lovely week at your beautiful little cottage. The garden and your view are absolutely stunning. We very much enjoyed sitting out in the late afternoon deck chairs watching the herons, eagles, nuthatches and all the other birds. Thank you.

Caught a 29 Pound Salmon

  • Submitted: Nov 12, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
We had an unbelievable time here! Thank you so very much for your hospitality in every way. Romney took us fishing yesterday – I caught a 29 pound salmon, Derek an 18 pounder! Going home with a cooler full. We kayaked everywhere – Gorge Harbour was especially beautiful. Time here on the beach was precious. Please enjoy my Zen offering on the windowsill in the kitchen. We hope to return again soon – so hard to leave – it truly felt like home. Peace & thanks.

We did not come from far away. We can actually see our home across the water in Campbell River, yet this is like a different world. The gardens are special and inspiring! Thank you for creating a place like Zen Gardens Beach Cottage.
