Sea Meadows is a 21 acre estate on the Queen of the Gulf Islands - Gabriola Island.

The estate consists of four homes connected by a paved oval driveway in a very private, peaceful, and pretty in a park-like setting. The main residence is set back one-third of a mile from the rental homes to ensure maximum privacy for all.

There are three (3) rental homes. The first two, The Gate House and The Round House, are approximately a city block apart, and are 150 and 300 feet from cozy Descanso Bay. The third house, The Honeymoon Hideaway, is set back further, and has it’s own private setting. Only a lightly traveled road separates the estate from the natural cove and beachfront. The beach is a typical British Columbia beach, both rocky and sandy yet flat and walk on, where you can either beachcomb, swim, or even launch and anchor your boat in the bay.

The Gate House features an xtra large living room (over 700 sq.ft.)(with 3 additional queen size sofabeds),the living room may also be divided in half making additional sleeping quarters private, four (4) large bedrooms, 14' x 15' each with queen-size beds complete with nice linens and comforters.

The kitchen is fully-equipped with refrigerator, stove, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, china, and utensils. The comfort of the living room is enhanced by the luxury of having a 46" HD TV with DVD and VCR for your pleasure.

A few things I enjoyed...

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 22, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2011
The pictures on the Internet do not do the property justice. It is large, well-maintained and secluded, in a very quiet area. The rooms are cozy and comfortable, and the private patio outside of each room is a nice touch - perfect for private stargazing and breakfasts. The living room is spacious and the nature paintings create a pleasant atmosphere. I saw many deer on the property, especially at dusk. The proprietor and family were helpful and accommodating, though they left us alone unless we needed help with something.
I would recommend investigating these attractions:
Sandstone rock formations can be seen all around the area, including right in front of the property.
"The Galleries" are very impressive formations (though they must be accessed by boat - there is a boat launch across the road from the Gate House).
Twin Beaches - sandy beaches facing opposite directions approximately three kilometers drive.
The Surf Lodge (about six kilometers down the road) is a nice place to have a sunset dinner.
Bio Luminescents (North Side of Twin beaches) these were fascinating to see at night when you can watch them light up when you move your arms and legs below surface of the water (check into the time of year when they are active).
The Petroglyphs (approximately 10 kilometers down the road).
Starfish at Lighthouse point - you can see them among the rock formations at low tide.
Eagles in the trees on the road to the ferry - right outside the property, I counted more than 10 Eagles while taking a walk on the nearly carless road (apparently 3 eagles live on the property).
Sunset views on the road between the property and the ferry are amazing.
The sandy/rocky/gravelly beach in front of the property is perfect for children to look for crabs and other shore creatures. I even saw a sea otter!

concerning wheelchair access

  • Submitted: May 19, 2012

I use a power wheelchair, though I do not require a wheelchair accessible washroom. I found the Gate House and the Main House reasonably accessible from my point of view. I think the honeymoon Hideaway is similarly accessible. (A little push and/or some guidance to get over a bump here or there, when entering the house, etc.) The spacious nature of the property makes it a joy for a wheelchair user, since I could cruise around without concern for anything else. There is a lot of pavement, but a (wheel-able) gravel driveway leads to the Main House and to the Honeymoon Hideaway. I would advise a flag/blinkers so drivers can see you if you intend to explore the island roads in a power wheelchair. (Beautiful seaside/cliffside road between the ferry and the property.)

Weekend Birthday Retreat

Had a group in this beautiful gatehouse for a weekend and a birthday. Was an excellent retreat for all of us; gorgeous property and the ocean is ten seconds out your door. The house itself was huge inside -- slept all of us more than comfortably. Everything was clean and as advertised.

really cool place, seemed to be several different small deer wandering around, and saw 2 bald eagles there.
The cafes and live music and arts and craft shops were neat too

Nice quiet get away, will definitely return

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Kevin. We look forward to your next visit. We hope you bring some more of that very healthy "Greens First" product. First time I ever drank one that tasted good. Jason for Seameadows
