About Tony Buss

My wife Deanne & I purchased this gem on Galiano Island in 2011 & have enjoyed the property with family & friends every chance we get. Our year round family home is in Cloverdale, BC(30 min. from Vancouver) and it's just a 35 minute drive to the Tswwassen ferry terminal for quick weekend getaways.

Tony Buss purchased this chateau / country house in 2011

Why Tony Buss chose Galiano Island

We chose Galiano Island since it is the closest of the Southern Gulf Islands from Greater Vancouver where we have our year round home. With 3 children in sports & other activities it's difficult to get away regularly so we decided to offer the property to other's to enjoy. Galiano Island has many deer as there are no predators(no bear/cougars etc.), very safe for children that want to roam.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

When the birds stop singing in the evening, the silence is very comforting & the stars are brilliant.

Walk the gardens during the day & you will always come across a unique bird or flower etc.

Comfortable and Relaxing Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
We so enjoyed our stay at Galiano Gardens. Walking the garden paths, observing the trees and all the nature that surround the property. The home is well kept, spacious and conveniently located. We hiked Mt.Galiano starting from the back garden. A 5 minute drive and you can get to 'town'. The home is away from traffic and noise. The owners were always available to answer any queries and to make us feel at home. The place was perfect for our family and we hope to be back.

Thank you.

Island paradise

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed three memorable days in this lovely home. The quiet location, spacious layout and very comfortable furnishings well surpassed our expectations. The gardens and wrap-around decks provided many options for relaxing, reading, swimming, badminton and enjoying the sun. We were able to easily access the hiking trail to Mount Galiano and a sandy beach was only a 5-minute drive away. The owner was very helpful, thoughtful, and easy to contact. It was the perfect place for our family getaway and we would love to go back! Many thanks!

A stunning escape

  • 5 of 5
Galiano Gardens is a stunning escape. The house is beautifully rennovated with wide windows throughout to let in all that gorgeous island sunshine. The owners have included so many little touches to make it feel like a gracious private inn: a well-equipped kitchen, a wide assortment of books and magazines, luxurious linens and comfy furniture made for lounging. With so much to do on the property (endless garden nooks to relax in; a pool; expansive wrap-around decks for both sun and shade all day long; and, a perfect lawn for bocce) we were hard pressed to leave the grounds to explore the rest of Galiano Island. Along with its abundant ammenities, the house was spotlessly clean, we were warmly welcomed and our hosts made the booking and check in process smooth and efficient. We will certainly be returning to this gem.

Galiano Gardens is a 12 acre secluded & private inland property. Surrounded by large pine, fir, cedar etc. Just a few minutes walk to one of the many beaches on the island. Take the trail in the back of the property for a 45 minute hike up to the top of Mt. Galiano(aprox. 900ft) & marvel at the beautiful view of the southern gulf islands! Fishing excursions are offered by several Charter boats from Montague Harbour just 4 minutes drive. If u want to get away from it all, this property will do just that & in just a 50 minute direct ferry ride from Vancouver's Tsawwassen terminal.
