The full kitchen is open concept with a bar seating area for 6 and a harvest table for 6, as well as a cozy wood burning fireplace. The living room has a large sectional couch, a gas fireplace, a piano and a door opening onto the large sunny deck, which has an outdoor gas fire pit and comfortable seating, a breakfast bar and barbecue. There is lovely hiking and biking out the back door and a short trail walk to the ocean sandstone beach. Plenty of wildlife including deer, eagles, hummingbirds, sealions, seals and river otters.

About Joanne Young

My husband and I live in North Vancouver but aways wanted a quaint farm house in the country as a retreat from city life. We have found that our busy lives and summers plans take us elsewhere and we decided that we wanted others to be able to enjoy our beautiful heritage home while we are away.

Joanne Young purchased this house in 2004

Why Joanne Young chose Galiano Island

This house has an interesting story. We moved the house by barge from Victoria to Galiano Island and landed it on a lot across the street from our property. In the photos, the other house on the barge is our only next door neighbour who also moved her house at the same time. It was early on a February morning when the barge arrived - what an adventure. As you can see, we have done a huge amount of work to lovingly restore this house, which dates back to 1912, to become a cottage retreat.

When you return from your outdoor adventures, enjoy this warm and cozy cottage with a glass of wine around the wood burning fireplace in the kitchen or the gas fireplace in the living room. Two clawfoot tubs and stained glass windows add to the relaxing atmosphere. In the morning, enjoy your cup of coffee in the sun on the front balconies in this lovely tranquil setting. A large sunny deck on the side is the perfect place for a summer barbecue and to watch the eagles that have a nest across the road and the spectacular stars at night. Children and pets always welcome.

If you are looking for a gorgeous, cozy house full of character, set in a lush forest on a beautiful island, this is your house to rent. My spouse and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit, and Craig and Joanne are such warm and lovely people. We love how they designed and decorated it, keeping all of the character yet making it modernly comfortable. The high ceilings and spacious layout make it ideal for large family gatherings and the house is well equipped for any occasion. We especially enjoyed the deck, the multiple fireplaces, the forest view, the privacy and the very short walk to the beach. We can't wait to go back!

Birthday getaway

  • 5 of 5
I had my 30th birthday party at this cabin with 10 of my friends. It's in the forest so we didn't hve to worry about being too loud. It's a short walk I the water through the forest. There's a lovely patio and a trampoline! I reccomend a weekend getaway to this cabin for sure. Joanne was great to deal with and same with the cleaning staff. There was a bit of a mixup with checkout time but they were apologetic and remedied the problem.

We spent 2 nights here with 3 couples, a toddler, and 2 infants. Joanne was very helpful and friendly and made sure everything was organized for us to enjoy our stay. The house was cozy and warm and the walk to the ocean was beautiful. There were many great options for hikes and beaches within a 15 minute drive. We would definitely go back! Thanks Joanne!
