Saturna Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7)

Orcas Paradise. Hyak Cottage at Eastpoint on Saturna Island. Literally right next to the famous Eastpoint park where the orcas pass through almost every day from May to September. It is not unusual to see several pods together with 40 or more orcas at a time. You can even catch them passing through Tumbo Channel, between us and Tumbo Island.

Leave the city behind. Unplug and relax at our large modern 2 bedroom cottage. Enjoy breath-taking views of the Pacific Ocean, small island groups, and mountains including majestic Mount Baker. Enjoy the view through our floor to ceiling windows all along the front of the cottage.

Watch the orcas, sea lions, porpoises. deer, eagles and all manner of wild life from our large comfortable balcony. As evening approaches, sit back with a cool drink and enjoy the spectacular sunset over Tumbo Channel.

Wilderness Galore! Now that you have relaxed, you might want to explore our 53 private acres. You will find only six cottages on the waterfront of this expansive property. Kick off your shoes and walk along our crushed shell beach mmm feels good!!!!!! Or check out our sandy beach. Explore the tidal pools just beyond on another day. Or perhaps you have brought a boat; launch it at our boat launch on site. Cross the road and you will find 44 wooded acres to hike in. This is our private property so if you have a dog, let it loose.

This orca paradise is located at Eastpoint, on Saturna Island, just out of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Take B.C. Ferries from Tsawwassen (Vancouver) or from Vancouver Island at Swartz Bay (Victoria). US ferry connection is from Port Angeles to Victoria Harbour.

Orca Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We were told about Saturna Island by the naturalist on the B.C. ferry from Horseshoe Bay to Nanaimo earlier in the summer, she was talking about the Orca and said that Saturna although remote was the best place to see these great animals from the land. I had friend visiting from the U.K. so we were a party of 4 50 somthings....The Cabin was everything it was advertised to be. It was warm & cozy nicely furnished and the kitchen had everythng you would need to be fully self catering (which we were). People have to bare in mind thatthis is a remote Island and that is part of it's charm, when you are in the country the have to appreciate that the water supply is fragile as it there resouces for garbage etc. We were blessed with glorious weather and so much wildlife close to. We saw Eagles, otters seals, sea lions, porpoises and Orca at a mile off shore. Closer would have been nice but that's the luck of the draw. We saw sun sets and sun rise . We had drinks and snacks at the pub while waiting for the ferry, the food was very good. The general store although small has everything that you couldwant. We packed most of our food with us but you could get everything you needed in the store. If you love nature this place is definately somewhere you should visit. We leave with nothing but happy memories.
We got to Saturna via Tswwassen to Sydney (sydney is an amazing place to spend a couple hours and you definately need to try the crab cakes Bennie in the little cafe on the pier. our return journey took us via Maine, Gabriola and back to Tswwassen. Saturna isn't easily accessable which is part of it's charm you can believe me that it is worth your while.

A Bit Misleading

  • 2 of 5
In the interests of fairness, this area is beautiful and the cottage is perfectly fine. However... it is not waterfront and its view, while certainly lovely, is blocked by the less expensive cottages which actually are waterfront. To get to the water, one must hike down a hillside through the tall grasses and past the waterfront cottages. The photos you see were certainly not taken from this cottage.
A wood-burning fireplace is listed but is not part of this cottage.
To be fair, my stay started a bit badly. The owner had given me a code to get in, but since I arrived after dark it was almost impossible to work. Knowing what time my ferry arrived, the simple consideration of turning on the porch light would have made all the difference. As it was, it took me 45 minutes and several broken fingernails to actually gain entrance. Repeated phone calls to the owner went unanswered until the next day. (I had foolishly agreed to pay the full amount up-front and there was no contract.)
Eager for the comfort of a warm bath, I was greeted by a stingy trickle in the shower and a non-working tub-stopper.
The cottage was clean enough. A few black hairs really aren't too much of a bother. The sheets were clean.
That said, the area is quiet and beautiful. The few activities that exist on the island are about a 30-minute drive (kayaking, winery, groceries), but I didn't come here for a lot of activity.
If you want solitude and aren't too picky about a place perfectly matching its description then I could recommend this cottage.
