PARADISE! That's the first thing that entered our minds when we came to Galiano Island. Close to major cities, but yet you feel a million miles away. Many unspoiled, natural and wild beaches, friendly people and west coast wilderness all around.
Our house is nestled in a fir and arbutus forest, with lots of sunlight, fantastic ocean, mountain and sunset views, and a very cozy and comfortable house to relax in. There is not a single house to be seen from our Galiano Getaway Cottage so you can find the peace and quiet you have been looking for.
Children are welcome in our house as our house is child friendly. There's lots to do on the island; swim, bike, explore or shop... or you can relax on the deck and read your book!! If you are trying to get away from the 'Madding Crowd', give our house on Galiano Island a visit!!

Jim and I fell in love with Galiano in 1988 and were fortunate to be able to buy our house there. We have spent a lot of time fixing it up for ourselves and for others to use.
Amanda purchased this cottage in 1988
We have had so many wonderful times on Galiano Island. We exchanged our wedding vows with our family and friends around us in Bluff Park overlooking Active Pass, on Galiano in 1989. Since then we have spent time every summer with our two daughters exploring the island and spending time together. When we escape to Galiano from Vancouver for a few days,
we always feel rejuvenated and energized when we return to our busy city lives. In the spring and fall we try to get over
to the island with our friends- long weekends with other families, Jim with his poker friends and Amanda with her
women friends. The house is fabulous for just getting away and being together.
Our favorite things to do on the island are walking in to Pebble Beach, jumping off the dock at the government dock at
the north end, walking around the trail at Montague Park, going for ice cream at the marina and scoops, shopping at
Ixchel craft shop, watching movies Saturday afternoon at the Gulf Islands film school, swimming at Morning beach or
Cable Bay, playing monopoly and reading books out on our deck and best of all, having a relaxing dinner out on our
deck as the sun goes down.
We had such a great time on Galiano Island - thanks so much for making it possible!
Our time was too short, though. So we will definitely make plans to return again!
Your place is beautiful - just gorgeous.
My partner and I rented the Galiano Getaway for the winter months this past season. One of the things we love most right away was the character of the place--furniture and artwork and books all reflective of the travels and joys of the owners. There's a beautiful view from both the top and bottom decks, a kitchen we fully enjoyed making new dishes in for 6 months, and lots of different places in the house to enjoy--a woodburning fire, a breezy master bedroom, two other cozy bedrooms, a large porch area... I would recommend this place for families or gatherings of friends for sure! Being here over the winter presented a few challenges with the unusually snowy winter we had, but Amanda was always incredibly available and gracious and helpful in helping us overcome anything we faced. If you have a vehicle and want a quiet getaway amidst nature where you can still enjoy the comfort of a home, this is absolutely the place for you!!
The deck and those stunning views were hard to leave. Lovely home, comfy beds, cozy blankets and reading nooks. Lots of space and the kitchen is well appointed. Amanda was so accommodating as we had a few special requests. We highly recommend this private piece of heaven.

This was a lovely place - amazing view, clean, comfortable beds! Our host was very quick to get back to us with our enquiries.
We enjoyed our stay. Waking up to the beautiful view, having breakfast out on the deck, going for walks and watching movies with our grandson by the cozy fireplace. Felt like home.
If you're thinking the price is too good to be true, stop! Amanda's description of the property is spot on and believe me the pictures don't do the view justice. Easily capable of fitting 7 and accommodating for all interests. I highly reccomend this place to really anyone and everyone. TWO THUMBS UP!!!
We had a wonderful week at the Galiano Getaway. It's quiet, peaceful with wonderful views from the deck and the is cottage comfortable and well equipped.
