British Columbia Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5 adults)

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!!

About Amanda

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

Why Amanda chose British Columbia

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Thanks again.

Amazing Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Galiano Island was really nice. Small place and a perfect getaway. Your cabin was amazing as well. Great spot in the forest, close walk to the water, and the view was unreal; everyone in the group really enjoyed their stay. I've recommended the spot to a few friends already and I will definitely be spending more time exploring around the islands.

Thanks again for the accommodation and a great weekend.

A great hideaway on the hill with fantastic views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights in March and it was fantastic! A little bit of everything weather wise - and reading on the deck in the sunshine in the afternoon was such a treat. A great location if you're looking to be away from the crowds. The only downside is that you'd better be prepared as it's about 30 minutes to drive to any kind of services and many of the trails. We hiked every day and the trails surpassed expectations. We brought our bikes and wished we hadn't - it's a very hilly island and only a few good destinations from the top-end of the island when travelling with a toddler who only has so much time to spend biking. A well-equipped cabin - thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your honest and informative review. It really is amazing to take a moment to read in any season in the afternoon sun on the deck! I appreciate you letting people know that we are not near the stores and the ferry so choosing days to not go anywhere is so relaxing and then finding other days to explore the island is always very rewarding! Hope to see you again soon:)

Vacation retreat on Galiano

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed at this cabin for 3 nights. Absolutely Great !!! Cabin was in a great location. Close to Bodega Ridge.. if you have an event there.... also not far from other locations on Galiano. Owner provides a comprehensive binder detailing what to see and do on the Island. Watch out for deer when you are driving around the Island!!!!

Cabin was cozy and well equipped with everything that we needed for our stay. Lots of space with 2 bedrooms upstairs and 1 bedroom downstairs. Perfect for the group that we had. Owner was very helpful and accommodating... Highly recommended!!!!

We'll return!

  • 5 of 5

I'm in love with this cute place, and island.

We had a fabulous time as the cabin had everything and more. Spacious with two bedrooms on the main floor with ample room and a bedroom below. It was perfect for our four.

Our host was helpful before our journey, and a binder in the living room had much more details/notes on things we should know about Gabriola.

R and R at Galiano Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The view from this property is simply breathtaking. The master bedroom sees the same view as the deck and you can watch the moon over the ocean and see the ocean when you wake up - literally from your bed. We stayed with my older teenage son and our dog on a family getaway for hiking, long afternoons reading on the deck and some boardgames playing in the evening. This property was perfect for this vacation. Kitchen was fully equipped, everything worked and it was a peaceful way to spend the week. Just what we needed!
