About Jan Stevens

As a long-time resident of Bowen Island, I love to share my very special vacation home, the Hollybarry Cottage with visitors. The cottage was built in 1958 and renovated in 1995. I named it after my now-adult children, Holly and Barry. I live next door on the property and take great pride in maintaining both of the seasonal gardens.

I am still very active and love to golf at the Bowen Island Golf Club. But, being that I am no longer a spring chicken, I have stepped back from the day-to-day management of the Hollybarry Cottage and turned it over to our neighbour and friend, Jan Stevens. She will take very good care of you.

Please say “Hi” to me if you see me in the garden or taking a swim down at the beach. I would love to meet you. Enjoy!! Jean Cleator

Jan Stevens purchased this cottage in 1950

Why Jan Stevens chose Bowen Island

In 1958 my husband and I purchased the land on which Hollybarry Cottage was built after friends introduced us to their summer cottage next door. We had a young family at that time, so a cottage near the city where the children could spend their summers swimming at the nearby community beach and picking berries - and we could enjoy a wonderful view - was ideal.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the sunny southerly ocean and mountain views from our property which is unique considering we are on the east side of Bowen. Access to our vacation home is an easy drive from Snug Cove: only 8 minutes or 3 km. But for those that prefer to travel via bus, we are fortunate to be along the C11 Eagle Cliff Bus route. Ask and we will send you the bus schedule. In spite of being along a main road, Eagle Cliff, we have no street lights, no traffic, no sidewalks………..just a quiet rural destination that truly feels like another world and only 30 minutes from the city.

an excellent well equipped and comfortable retreat

A great mini break for us in this fantastic cottage, everything you need and more. Spacious, quiet and very clean.

The only thing we'd change.. dimmable lighting in the downstairs living room. It was a little bright for the marathon Monopoly session!!

Perfect!

This is a beautifully presented and very well equipped holiday home. The owners have thought of everything to make guests feel comfortable: you can really feel the love! The house has an amazing view and the beach really is a 2 minute walk away. Try a brisk swim in the sea followed by a sauna - bliss! The bus service to Snug Cove is friendly and frequent. The only downside: you won't want to leave. Really.

Can we stay forever?

My husbands birthday couldn't of been better if it wasn't for holly Barry cottage. We've stayed at two other places and this is the best one....the view is beautiful and the home is gorgeous. The walk to the beach was quick and easy and the locals were friendly and sharing their stories with us. We had a romantic dinner both nights at the cottage for I new it had all the tools you would need. Clean cozy and relaxing is what we wanted.
. We watched the sun go down, the full moon come up. The next day we went to bowen island pup where they remembered us from before and they were so kind to us.....great service....went to doc morgans pub not so great, we left....all and all we will be back to holly Barry cottage a beautiful experience

Family weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
This is a great place to stay on Bowen Island. The house is spacious and equipped with just about anything one may need for a short (or long) vacation stay. The location is great, with a great view, and located within minutes of a small beach with easy access to water. The house was very clean and well prepared. The owner greeted us when we arrived and was very helpful during our stay there. We had a wonderful family weekend getaway, and will gladly rent the place again in the future. I would highly recommend this place to any of my friends/relatives.

Owner's Response: Piotr and family, thank you so much for your great review. We are glad to hear that your family loved your stay. I will certainly let our cleaning staff know that you appreciated their good work. Cleanliness and comfort are very important goals and we are glad that we were successful. The swimming beach down the trail (just 5 minutes away) is the icing on the cake. We would love to have you return. Jan

Clean and comfortable accommodation with spectacular view, pet friendly. We loved our stay with another couple from Switzerland, lots of room for 4, but not enough for 6. Car is a must if you like to fully explore the island.

Owner's Response: It is good to know that you were comfortable and enjoyed the Hollybarry Cottage. Now you have given us a challenge to solve.....we do sleep 6 and it is most important that 6 are comfortable. Guaranteed, on your next return the cottage will win your approval for 6 guests. We would welcome you as our return guests in the future. Thank you so much for being our guests this year.
