My husband and I live in West Vancouver, BC.
We enjoy many of the outdoor activities on the West Coast such as hiking, running, kayaking, golfing and tennis. We have 3 daughters in their late teens/early twenties and a 5 year old son.
My family has been vacationing on Bowen Island since the 1940's. My grandfather built Shallon in 1950. He believed in restoration and used the hardwood floor from the dancehall for the house. It has had many happy steps on it and still retains a unique, warm patina. In 2008, my husband and I extensively renovated Shallon creating a blend of new comforts combined with some of the original character. Many fond memories are with me from Shallon having visited my grandparents up there regularly. It is a special place and we hope you will book and enjoy it as much as we do. :)
We LOVE the quiet. Living in Vancouver the hussle and bussle of city life is all around us. At Shallon we sleep peacefully and happily wake up to the sound of birds. In the summer we hear motor boats go by, but these are soothing summer sounds that we cherish. Our daughters would say they like best spending summer days on the beach tanning, reading and swimming. They walk down to the beach in the morning and spend most of the day there. Our 4 year old son would tell you the best parts are the ferry ride, the rocks to throw in the ocean and watching the deer right below our deck. My husband and I like the change of pace, our retreat master bedroom, baths in the clawfoot tub with a glass of wine, reading books by the fire, hiking up Mt. Gardner, walks around the lake...we all love family pizza nights at Tuscany, the starfish shaped chocolate at CocoCoco West and walking around the labyrinth at Xenia.
Great family getaway - relaxing with a beautiful view. Wonderful West Coast charm...perfect for us.
We stayed at the cabin for 2 nights and cant say we could have enjoyed our time off better. The place was well equipped for us to make our meals and we enjoyed our meals on the deck outside. I have to say the view was the best part! Our girls enjoyed the beach which was not crowded and just a hike down from the cabin and they were quite kicked to see deer in the backyard. The ferry to the island is short and sweet with amazing photo-ops. I would recommend the property to anyone looking for a quiet time with the option for some adventure as well.
Shallon is located in the perfect location on Bowen Island. Just a 5 minute drive to 'the cove' where all the shops are located. Yet, very private with a 'world-away' feel. The vacation home is a short walk to Eagle Cliff beach, a local favourite. There are a number of invigorating walks close to Shallon. The walk around Killarney Lake is one of our favourites. The scenery is magical and varied. If you are interested in getting out on the water - there is Bowen Island Kayak rentals. Kayaking is a spectacular way to explore Bowen.
The golf course provides a feel for the other side of the island. Cleared out with rolling hills, it is quite a treat to play. And if you are into tennis, we have a couple of public courts close by.
The museum, art gallery and library all provide interesting displays for guests who would rather stay inside on a rainy day. Good restaurants are found on Bowen, with one of our favourites being'Tuscany'. For absolutely delicious food - try Miksa in the Cove.
We are happy to act as your personal 'concierge' if you book with us. Helping you select activities would be a pleasure.
