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

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.

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.

Our kitchen is a completely equipped FULL SIZE KITCHEN. Other properties of our size might have kitchenettes but we have full size appliances. It has all the conveniences of home for preparing your “home cooked meals.“

We are only 8 minutes from the many restaurants in Snug Cove. Dine at Mik.sa and receive 10% off when you mention the Lazy Bowen Hideaway.

Spa services are available on site. Schedule a Massage, Pedicure, Manicure, Facial or other relaxation /esthetic services without driving a mile. Our professional masseuse and esthetician will arrive at the Petite Suite and provide your requested spa services anywhere on the property.

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!

Wonderful Beach House

  • Submitted: Feb 19, 2014
  • Stayed: Aug 2010
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.

Amazing Retreat

  • Submitted: Feb 19, 2014
  • Stayed: Oct 2010
We have been to this wonderful retreat a few times over the last few months and everytime we feel the stress of work and the hustle and bustle of the city melt away. One step out onto the deck and you see that amazing view and you competely forget you are only 20 minutes away from the city. My husband and I travel alot and we both agree that this is one of our favorite locations and we don't have to get on a plane or travel for hours to get here. The owner of the property is amazing and so happy to do anyhing she can to accomodate your needs. If you like the outdoors there are many great hiking trails and beautiful scenery that is great for avid or novice walkers. There are lots of great little restaurants with terrific food, but we prefer to stay in and cook all the while enjoying the comfort of this home along with a million dollar view. If you are looking for tranquility, relaxation and happiness... this is the place for you.

Great Rainy Winter Escape

  • Submitted: Feb 19, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2011
This was our first mini trip as a family of 4 (kid @ 2 yrs and kid @ 4 weeks). It rained off and on all weekend, but the petite suite was a great place to play games and bond! :) We watched the ferries go back and forth and had a great view of howe sound and the mountains along the sea to sky highway. We went outside and threw rocks in the water and then came back to sit by the wood stove which was really cozy!! The lane (Cleator Rd) was exciting the first time (raining and dark) but was not too bad really. I would not even think of trying it in a 2wd though. Check in with the lock box was easy, and everything was exactly as described on the website and the welcome package. It was a great getaway, close to vancouver, but it felt far away! This place (the top of cleator rd) is actually accessible by transit! From vancouver you could take a bus to horseshoe bay, then ferry to snug cove, and then a bus from snug cove to the top of cleator rd.

Fantastic Cottage for our Group

  • Submitted: Feb 19, 2014
  • Stayed: Aug 2010
We stayed at the Lazy Bowen Hideaway & Petite Suite from August 6th through 9th (3 nights). We had a group of 7 -- mostly singles - attending a friend's wedding on Bowen Island. The cottage, along with the Petite Suite, was absolutely perfect for our needs. While the weather didn't cooperate (rain & drizzle for most of the weekend), it didn't stop us from having a great time! A couple of us took advantage of swimming, and well enjoyed a dinner at Tuscany - it was terrific. We also enjoyed a walk around Killarney Lake - the tall trees protected us (mostly!) from the rain & drizzle. The cottage was exactly as we expected - it was very clean, well maintained, and we didn't have any trouble finding what we needed when preparing meals for our large group. Jan was great to deal with - right down to the very detailed instructions for driving down Cleator Road to the cottage (glad I didn't have to do the driving!). I speak on behalf of my entire group, and we would whole-heartedly recommend the Lazy Bowen Hideaway as a wonderful getaway spot. Thanks Jan, for a wonderful time!
