About Jan Stevens
Jan Stevens was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. She studied art and Interior Design at the University of Washington. In 1982 she moved to Henderson, Nevada where she designed one-of-a-kind interiors for hundreds of clients. Over 13 years ago, when her son was an infant, she established Jan Stevens Design and began her successful design business while working out of her house and being “Mom” at the same time. Jan has designed stylish, comfortable and gorgeous interiors for over 30 years. Jan’s creativity and organizational skills has lead her to other entrepreneurial endeavors such as fundraising, graphic design, writing, and photography, as well as managing the Lazy Bowen Hideaway as a vacation rental. Over the last 10 years, following her passion for Bowen’s natural beauty, Jan began photographing the island sunsets, landscapes, and flora. Starting as a hobby the photographs were given as gifts to friends and neighbors as calendars and note cards. With the encouragement of a good friend, Jan has just recently signed, framed and displayed some of her best work at the Lazy Bowen Hideaway. All of Jan’s Bowen Island photography is available for sale. With all of Jan’s relatives being Canadian and living in the Vancouver area Jan’s frequent visits to her Bowen Island home makes staying in touch with family easy. The goal in the near future is to spend equal time between the sunny Southwest and the temperate rain forest of Bowen Island. This would be the best of both worlds.
UPDATE AS OF FEBRUARY 2013 ~ I am proud to say that I am now a dual citizen, US and Canadian, retroactive back to my date of birth in 1955.
Jan Stevens purchased this studio in 2004
Why Jan Stevens chose Bowen Island
Our Bowen Island cabin has been in the Stevens family since 1954. When our Aunt passed we became the 2nd generation to own and care for this beautiful waterfront property. We have over 50 years of irreplaceable childhood memories of family time at the cabin: playing cards, board games, and swimming all day and night. It only makes sense to share this special property with other families that will appreciate the many special qualities of Bowen Island: slow pace, safe environment, and spectacular waterfront setting among a few. We are thrilled to be creating new family memories for our son and hope the Lazy Bowen Hideaway can be a part of your family history too.
What makes this studio unique
Waterfront…Spectacular View…1 minute to the Beach… Complete & Efficient Kitchen…Summertime Boat Dock…Comfortable Furnishings…Professionally Designed…Bright & Sunny…All this for a Very Reasonable Rate…What could be better than the Lazy B Petite Suite?
An Inviting WATERFRONT suite with a SPECTACULAR VIEW: nestled among fir, cedar, laburnum, and ancient arbutus trees. We are surrounded by nature from the deer grazing in the yard to porpoises playing in the water. It is truly another world.
Being only 1 MINUTE FROM THE BEACH makes us the envy of Eagle Cliff. No one is closer.

Planning your trip to Bowen Island is easy with our “Welcome Packet” that is inclusive of all things Bowen. Like an email travel agent the packet will provide you with ferry schedules, grocery shopping suggestions, dining recommendations with reviews, and activities from kayaking to yoga. Our Welcome Packet is the best on Bowen.
As a PROFESSIONAL INTERIOR DESIGNER my priority was to create an Always Sunny and Comfortable Suite. The space was recently updated and furnished with ALL NEW FURNISHINGS, not Grandmas hand-me-downs. The color palette is fun, fresh, and bold, a
pleasant change of pace.
Stay with us so you can discover first hand why the Lazy B Petite Suite is SPECIAL!!! WE LOVE IT and we think you will too!
Guestbook comments from the owner
We rented both the main house (Lazy Bowen Hideaway) and the downstairs suite (Lazy B Petite Suite) for our family vacation. It worked out perfectly. Lots of time for the grandparents to sit on the deck, relaxing and reading. The rest of the family paddled our kayaks around the bay, went swimming and hiking. Delightful in every way.
