About Reidar and Margery Zapf-Gilje
Welcome to Bold Bay on Quadra Island! We first discovered Quadra Island over 40 years ago, and have spent our holidays and as part-time residents ever since. Our children (all adults now), join us when they can (my daughter is with me on photo attached). We split our pleasure time on Quadra Island with our working life in Vancouver. We look forward to meeting you!

What makes this Chalet unique
The Bold Bay property is steeped in history, with local first nations use of the bays and lake, and later by homesteaders. You can see signs of old trails, docks and foundations; and even find an arrowhead if you are lucky.

I have been to this property several times and always hate to leave it. It’s so very relaxing, peaceful and quiet. It has everything you could ever want or need for a great vacation. My dog loves it here too. So great to just watch him swim in the lake and hang out. House is great and beds are comfortable. Whole place has a vibe of relaxed ease. Never seen so many stars in all my life
Would love to return
Very comfortable and clean, on a picturess lake that was serene and peaceful.
The property has everything required for a great holiday, especially for those who enjoy water sports. The house has plenty of room, it's comfortable and all the important amenities are available. The great view of the lake, easy access to the water and a variety of water craft made our stay very enjoyable. And there were enough large beach towels for our group of seven. The property is spacious for outdoor games, and the deck space is substantial. The wi-fi was a little weak and slow at times, but still useful. The owners were very welcoming and accommodating.
peaceful cottage on a quiet lake
We absolutely loved the Dragonfly Cottage. The lake was quiet and not crowded. Very nice to stay at this little cottage in the forest away from the noise of traffic.
What a Find!
The setting, the house and the island were perfect. The property was oh-so-comfortable - as soon as we opened the door we felt at home. Everything was clean, everything worked, and it was exactly as advertised. We could have watched the lake for hours. Sunsets were breath-taking. The island was welcoming - we had two great lunches at the Heron Bay Inn. And the bookstore was beyond good. A few walks on Rebecca Spit and all in all a tremendous stay.
The landscape was gorgeous, the home was cozy and inviting, and there is so much to do in the area. Our visit was everything we had hoped for!
Badminton, croquet, bocce ball, soccer, volleyball.
