Bowen Island Studio Rental Photos and Description
1 large studio w/custom wall bed, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2-3
Architecturally unique, west coast modern dwelling. Curved design of house and roofs with floor-to-ceiling windows throughout. Green roof design using native grasses and sedums (planned for Spring 2013). A 'Green' build with goals of energy conservation and rainwater collection.
Spacious studio with contemporary interior/modern furnishings. Bright and light with vaulted curved ceiling and wall-to-wall windows overlooking a green roof and views of the coast/mountain ranges beyond. Private entrance and deck.
Spectacular sunsets, coastal island/ocean views as far as you can see. Mossy bluffs smothered in foxgloves in Spring followed by waving, golden grasses in summer. Gnarly, weathered old firs, roots dug deep into the bedrock to withstand the channel winds, dark silhouettes against a big sky and even bigger ocean.
A small community, surrounded by rainforest, fern valleys, moss covered bluffs and easy walking trails. Short woodland stroll to one of Bowen's best public swimming beaches in Bowen Bay.
We believe you will find our setting and amenities to be exceptional here on the Bluffs. We look forward to welcoming you!

About Wynn Nielsen
I was born to this coast and have a deep love for its rugged beauty and wild nature. In my work as a landscape designer and artist, I specializing in naturalistic gardens that are harmonious and in context with their wild surroundings. The creation and design of this house and landscape is a culmination of many years of imagining and desire to put down roots and I feel very fortunate to have found a home here. I love to share my experience of this special place with others and I am now able to do that through the creation of 'The Bluffs'.
Wynn Nielsen purchased this studio in 2011
Why Wynn Nielsen chose Bowen Island
This is a new development that opened up on the west side of the island. The ridge is home to 7 bluff lots with spectacular coastal views. Notwithstanding the wondrous natural setting, the philosophy behind the development was what attracted me to build and live here. The developer has stringent guidelines to protect the environment including maximum house sizes, water conservation (roof water collection), sustainability and energy conservation (Builtgreen). It felt right to build here.
What makes this studio unique
The winding one lane road through the rainforest opening up on to moss covered bluffs and, then, the ocean/sky views from the bluff. It was love at first sight.
