Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Situated in spectacular Whaler Bay a quick 5 minute walk from the Sturdies Bay Ferry Terminal and all amenities - A calm serene bay with stunning views down the bay and beyond, perfect for swimming, paddle boarding and launching your kayaks or canoes. View our resident kingfisher perched on his pole, otters playfully frolicking stirring the glass-like water, watch for 'Sammy' the seal who comes round in the evening to check things out and watch the herons skillfully fish for their dinner. Galiano is also the perfect spot to see the many pods of whales that travel through our waters in the summer time.

We are available for rent year–round. So cozy–up to the wood burning fire and enjoy a good book in the winter or sit out on the deck with a refreshment on those hot summer days.

Recently redecorated bright open–space living & dining area with a cozy fireplace. Fully furnished 2 bedroom cottage, 1 queen and 2 double beds, and 1 full bath. Our fully supplied kitchen comes stored with dishes, cookware and appliances so you don't need to worry. The fireplace is a cozy accessory for those crisp winter days and fall evenings. The large 300 sq. ft. deck is the perfect place to relax on the deck chairs and enjoy the beautiful sunsets and views of spectacular Whaler Bay. There's also a propane barbecue so you can grill up your summer faves.

Enjoy the bounty of Provincial Parks, spectacular views, and wildlife every where you go and breathe that fresh island air. The natural beauty of Galiano Island invites relaxation, exploration and excitement.

Indulge in a bottle of wine and perhaps head down to Montague Harbour and pick up a fresh catch of local seafood the island has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our last morning here, our group of gals who decided to treat ourselves to a much needed break from reality. And what a break it has been. From the moment we walked into your beautiful home we knew we had found the retreat we were looking for.

From the beautiful view, the sunsets, and the stars at night. Amazing sleeps and comfort, nothing has been overlooked.

Thank you for giving us our home away from home. We leave today, refreshed, renewed, a group of mothers with 314 years of life experience between us. And these last 3 days are times we experienced together, and will never forget.

Winter stay in the beautiful Gulf Islands

  • 4 of 5

Andrea, your property was very satisfactory. A few absolutely minor details may have been better but overall we were very comfortable and happy with our stay. We were blessed with wonderful late winter weather for our first two days and a snowy blizzard on our final day. A trip to the beach in the snow should be on everyone's list. We are considering a summer return.

A Beautiful View

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Dave and Andrea for sharing your cottage with us for the weekend. We were looking for a quiet get away and certainly found it at this cottage. The bay that the cottage overlooks is calm, quiet and serene! The peace and quiet was so relaxing as was the warm and cozy fireplace which had a great dry wood supply. The cottage is bright and the sunlight streamed in on us in the morning as we were sitting by the fire drinking our coffee. The decor is lovely with colors taken from the sea and the surrounding BC west coast! Furnishings were comfortable and modern with a mix of antiques. The open design of the living room, dining room and kitchen was great as whoever was cooking did not feel like they were separate from the rest of the house. We found the island to be fun to explore and the village of Sturdies Bay had a number of shops to wander through. On the morning that we left and as we were waiting for the ferry, we walked to a bakery where we had a great cup of coffee and the best cinnamon bun that we had ever tasted! We will definitely be back to Galiano Island again very soon!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is as good a rental as you could possibly hope for....very clean throughout, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, amazing waterfront location and within walking distance of the ferry and restaurants and shop. The pictures of the property are exactly what you get!

Andrea was very, very flexible with some date problems I had and couldn't have been more helpful to us. Note that if you don't need to explore the island, it is easily doable to come as a walk on passenger because you are literally 5 minutes walk from the terminal!

I highly recommend a stay here - the peace at night is breathtaking!

Great location and secluded enough to enjoy the island

  • 5 of 5

Property matched if not exceeded the description - very clean and well maintained,

Owners more than helpful when contacted by international clients asking basic questions - nothing was to much trouble.

Would totally recommend this property to other friends and family but it could be quite cramped for 6 people if all adults.

Masses to do locally with walking, wildlife, sailing and canoeing - ideally placed very close to the local amenities at the south end near the ferry - I would love to come again!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a peaceful place to enjoy a relaxing week! Totally restful and rejuvenating. We enjoyed exploring the beaches during the day and viewing various wildlife. In the evenings time for bbqs on the deck facing the ocean and stargazing. Also if you have a hankering for some pizza check out Babes in the Woods, a local restaurant. The cottage is a short walk from some local shopping and offers everything from homemade soaps to unique clothing. We would definitely come back again and consider the cottage as a welcoming home base!
