A TRANQUIL GARDEN RETREAT FOR RECREATION AND RELAXATION.

Quadra Island House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Home, Close To Beaches

An exuberant west coast garden surrounds this spacious three bedroom home. The tranquil setting of house and garden on the front two acres blends naturally into the forest and attracts a variety of birds. Patios and garden nooks invite relaxation and el fresco dining. The gardens include a badminton court, horseshoe pitch and outdoor hot tub.

You can harvest fresh herbs and berries from the organic garden to garnish your salads. Our deep well provides excellent drinking water. We support responsible environmental efforts by recycling, composting and using organic methods throughout the gardens.

Well-maintained walking trails meander over creeks and through an undergrowth of ferns, old growth stumps and second growth trees on the back seven acres. Just across the road, there is a beach access trail to the ocean shoreline. At low tide, you can walk out to Heriot Island and explore an amazing array of inter-tidal life.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • children welcome
  • pets considered

We moved to Quadra Island in 1980 choosing the community and island life style in which to raise our children. Now retired, we enjoy winter travel and in the summer offer our home to visitors.

Robin Beaton purchased this house in 1980

On our first walk through this 9 acre property we were enchanted with the ferns, forest and streams surrounding the home site. Over the past 33 years, we have developed the gardens and a network of trails that visit favourite trees and special places.

All rooms of the house have garden views. The badminton court, horseshoe pitch and bocce game invite recreation. The hot tub and patios encourage relaxation while the garden graces it all.

Beauty and relaxation

  • 5 of 5
My children and I have been going to Fernwood Gardens every year for the past four years and will continue to do so. We love to read and relax, and the peaceful setting and beautiful gardens makes this the absolute perfect place for our vacation. We love the trail that Bob and Robin have created, as well as having the beach a short walk across the street. Although there are many things to do on Quadra, we truly enjoy relaxing at Fernwood.

Relaxing and peaceful

  • 4 of 5
Our stay at the Fernwood Gardens was very pleasant, the gardens are so beautiful and the trails throughout the property were a nice break from the sun. Robin and Bob are very gracious hosts. We had a blast playing badminton then a relaxing soak in the hot tub enjoying the spectacular view of the stars above.

Wonderful place with beautiful gardens

  • 5 of 5
Very enjoyable house for a family, big yard and gardens for kids to run around and play. The forest walks were great. Relaxing with a hot tub at the end of the day under the stars with the fragment lilies was my favourite part of my stay. The house had everything we needed and great layout. After a day exploring the island beaches and lakes, the property was such a wonderful place to return. I felt very lucky to be able to stay somewhere with such beautiful gardens, which have been developed over years of work and passion. I would highly recommend this vacation rental and intend to return as often as possible.

August Holiday

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely time at the Fernwood Gardens home.The property was every bit as nice as advertised and more. The house was actually larger than expected and was stocked with every utensil we could possibly need. The yard was large and well landscaped and the owners even set up a badminton net complete with painted lines on the grass. We used the hot tub pretty much every night and made use of the included wireless internet. All in all we had a great time.

Beautiful house, tranquil garden, wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5
I would definitely stay here again, we loved it! From the moment we got there we knew this was going to be a great stay. The owners are wonderful, they have lots of great information about the Island and places to go. The house is beautiful, clean and cozy, everything you need is there. There is lots to do on the property which is just gorgeous...from hiking on a trail made by the owners, badminton, horseshoes and much more....The hot tub was a nice way to wide down after hiking or kayaking all day. If you are lucky you will have a visit from their dog...she is super sweet. We really enjoyed our stay
