Overview

Southern Gulf Islands House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8+)

If you love privacy, afternoon sun, sunsets, stars at night in a forest setting, ocean views, mountains, big sky, eagles, and deer, then this is the place for you.

Mayne Island is the most historical of the Gulf Islands situated between Vancouver and Victoria. There are about 1100 full-time residents.

Our 2800sqft house was built in 2008 and features glass, wood, granite and slate throughout. A unique feature is the bridge over the living and dining area to a spectacular covered upper deck space with breathtaking views of Active Pass and neighbouring islands.

The property affords our guests complete seclusion and privacy nestled in acres of local cedars and firs with unlimited space for your relaxing vacation. It's the ideal place for couples, families, and gatherings of all kinds.

The property has west-facing ocean views of Active Pass and the mountains of Vancouver Island beyond. The vast, expansive surroundings make for a wildlife/bird-watcher's paradise! This property and home have been described by guests as 'Bliss!'.

The home's main floor master bedroom features a solid mahogany canopy bed, with private access to the main deck. The king-sized bedroom on the lower floor featues a gorgeous Virginian antique solid wrought iron bed. All four bedrooms are very tastefully decorated and furnished in a west-coast style with forest and ocean views.

There are five bicycles on site for use. A picturesque swimming beach is a short bike ride or walk away. Visitors have loved exploring the numerous bays and sandstone caves while their children collect sea shells and play in the sand. Two grocery stores, a wonderful bakery, pub and several restaurants on the island all add to the convenience of the island.

Cable TV, Wireless Internet, a fully functioning pub-style wet bar, games room, and piano are all here for you and your family to enjoy!

You can get to Mayne Island (Village Bay) by taking a BC Ferry from Victoria (Swartz Bay) or Vancouver (Tsawwassen). See BC Ferries website for schedules for the Southern Gulf Islands.

Click on the calendar for up-to-date availability. All four bedrooms have real beds with quality mattresses (1 King and 3 Queens). For larger groups after the beds are full guests usually bring their own camping mattresses and sleeping bags.

Many guests have commented that the house has exceeded their expectations.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is magical and fostered great times filled with all the love. We had the best bbq during sunset on the patio - GLORIOUS. This place is all good vibes and nature.



Mount Parke hike with the group was awesome. Saw two eagles at the lookout.



Thank you Mayne House!

Beautiful layout very well stocked, perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

On a tranquil island with peaceful bays and quiet roads, an escape from hectic city life, the property is incredibly private and has room for large familes, we appreciated how easy it was to check in and check out, the host was accommodating and a pleasure to interact with. Our bed was so comfortable and the decks were perfect for lounging on. Highly recommend this property

Stunning property, perfect for groups or families

  • 4 of 5

We rented this property for three nights to celebrate various birthdays and anniversaries of family and friends.

All four couples enjoyed the beautiful bedrooms and stunning common spaces in the house and outside. The kitchen and dining room were perfect for cooking & eating in numbers. The various outdoor deck spaces provided numerous options for shade/sun or solo/group time.

We also loved the old-school horseshoe pit, badminton area and option to swing in the forest hammock. A couple of us rode the bicycles provided down to the beach each day. The bikes were definitely in need of maintenance and repair which I indicated to the owners after we left and received thanks for the feedback. All in all an amazing time at this beautiful property.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Four moms and their young children enjoyed this wonderful place in July. The children loved the tree house (complete with tree frogs) and spent many hours playing in there! We had beach time every day; many different beaches to explore. In the evening we watched the sun set as deer grazed peacefully in the field next door. Beautiful home, beautiful island.

Fabulous spot for a retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time I've stayed at this property and have been impressed every time. Our quilt group had a retreat here and had everything we needed and more! Peter answered our questions promptly, which was appreciated. The beds and linens are high quality and the furnishings are very comfortable. A lot of attention to details that really make the home cozy. We spent a lot of time relaxing on the deck admiring the fabulous view and wildlife! Thanks Peter - We'll be back!

Fantastic venue!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our family who came over from Australia and the UK. The house was perfect with lots to do for the children and adults alike. We had many a game of pool and enjoyed the sunsets on the deck. Truly a memorable stay.

Luxury accommodation in a beautiful setting, managed by highly responsive and pleasant owners

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful house to accommodate some of our family and relatives who were attending a wedding on Mayne Island. The house is very nicely finished and decorated, spacious, incredibly well-equipped, and was very pleasant for all of us who stayed there. The spacious deck area also permitted others to visit without it seeming over-crowded. I wish we had had more time to simply relax and enjoy this appealing home.

The owners were very responsive and answered many questions promptly and courteously. The business side of renting was pleasant, smooth, and professional. We were very impressed and would certainly deal with these owners again.

The house was immaculate and we had no issues with anything. Access and use instructions were clear and well written. The only factor that some might wish to take into consideration is that given the open-concept design of the communal areas of the house, the upstairs and main floor bedrooms are not that insulated from noise in the kitchen/living-dining room. This factor would not dissuade us from renting this house again. It was great and exceeded our expectations.

Thank you for a fantastic experience.
