Overview

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The best cottage ever

  • 5 of 5
Ralph and Rocky are the nicest hosts a person could want. My husband and myself try to make it out every year and we always stay in their cozy cabin. We have returned and brought our family as well as out of town guests and rented out the top floor of their other chalet. Ralph and Rocky always make you feel right at home and are always so helpful.
We usually rent a boat from them and go out adventuring.
I highly recommend this place for a wonderful and relaxing getaway. Did I mention Rocky is the best baker around?

We had a wonderful time at Arbutus Cottage! Ralph and Rocky were wonderful hosts and kindly collected us from the ferry and showed wonderful hospitality the entire weekend. Their pride and knowledge of the Galiano community really shows and they make every effort to ensure their guests have a truly memorable time.They provided a fabulous map and detailed information that took us through the best of Galiano on a red moped :) The cottage was every bit as quaint and cosy as the island itself and I would highly recommend it to those looking for a peaceful and picturesque stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at STICKS and STONES COTTAGES during August. It is gratifying to know that the energy we put into making our guests feel at home is appreciated by them. We are so pleased to know that the GALIANO TOURIST MAP, that we produced, assisted you in visiting all of the 'island highlights'. We hope you will consider returning for a stay in the Fall/Spring period when the fireplace can add to the cottage ambience.

Perfect setting for relaxed family getaway

  • 5 of 5
Arrows Run is a great base from which to explore Galiano Island - it can sleep many people if you rent out the suite and the main house, it is close to many of the islands beaches and walks (not that anything in Galiano is far away!) and you have Ralph and Rocky who make sure that you are able to take full advantage of your time on the island.
Ralph and Rocky went out of their way to give us all the information we could want, and cater to our needs, without encroaching on our private family holiday in anyway. Thank you!

Two couples from the states stayed in the upper part (2 BR) here for five days. We were with a group of friends who stayed elsewhere on island. All agreed that we had the best location (view to beach a couple of blocks away in distance), owner, furnishings. Rocky spent solid time w/ us, explaining island and offering map + recommendations, which completely enhanced our experience. She also brought over mouth-watering scones one day! Very clean, private; excellent kitchen. Hiking on island was superb, as was kayaking. The Market is great for fresh produce, healthy foods. We recommend Conservancy Nature hikes, $15pp which goes to great causes. Saw much bird and sea life. We came up from Anacortes, WA by ferry (terrific experience!) after renting car in Seattle, returning via ferry to Vancouver BC and back to Seattle. Incomparable vacation; thank you so much, Rocky & Ralph!!
