Galiano Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-11)
Arrow's Run Cottage is located in a wooded setting that is close to a shore access that leads down to a sandstone shelf....perfect for beach combing and the exploration of a myriad of tidal pools. This modern cottage was designed and built in 2005. The large windows and elevated deck combine to make for a bright and airy accommodation. The modern kitchen is fully equipped and has everything a cook would need to provide mouth watering snacks as well as full meals. All linen, cutlery and towels are provided. The dishwasher is greatly appreciated by visiting guests as they have more time to spend relaxing with their families or friends.
Photographers relish the unlimited views, wildlife, unique eroded patterns in the rocky shore and sunsets that will be long remembered. 150+ species of bird can be viewed close at hand.
Artisan's creations can be viewed at numerous local venues.
Hiking/Biking trails are many and often lead to secluded, hidden beaches where deer, otter, Killer Whales (Orcas) and seal can be viewed close at hand.
Boating, fishing, mopeding/riding scooters and kayaking are activities that are offered to the public and provide the means for 'island' visitor to explore more than the local roads.

About Ralph or Rocky
We have owned property on Galiano Island since the late 70's and spent every holiday period here with our young family. We retired in 2000, and we have been involved with the business aspect of life on an island. We opened a restaurant, started a map company and a moped and boat rental company as well as our cottage rental business. Our life on Galiano is one that has fulfilled our desire to provide quality accommodations and service to the many visitors that arrive each year. We have a Border Collie named Arrow who is an important part of our lives. He travels everywhere with us, so we are aware of the importance of offering our accommodation to others that have pets that travel with them.
Ralph or Rocky purchased this cottage in 2005
Why Ralph or Rocky chose Galiano Island
Galiano is one hour from the hectic city life in both Vancouver and Victoria and is very attractive to city dwellers wishing to get away from it all and experience the laid back life that makes Galiano so unique. Travel to Galiano is most often by BC Ferry but arriving by float plane is an other possibility. Flights by air can be arranged by contacting Seaair, Harbour Air, Saltspring Air and Kenmore Air.
What makes this cottage unique
Visitors to our cottage will immediately be aware of the lack of traffic noise and the sound of the ocean mingled with the scent of lavender and other wildflowers and the large number of wild birds that inhabit our wooded area.
STICKS and STONES GUESTS receive a 15% discount on all moped and boat rentals at GALIANO MOPED and BOAT RENTALS Ltd.and each arriving guest will be provided with a Galiano Island Tourist Map and your hosts, Ralph and Rocky will spend a few moments with you to point out all of the unique hidden beaches, look out points and the local hiking trails.
