Overview

Southern Gulf Islands Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6),right on the ocean.

Our heritage cottage, 6 Lily Lane, has been renovated to modern standards. Settled on a private one-acre point with morning sunrises to start your day and evening sunsets that will take your breath away. The cottage point overlooks low bank tidal pools that you can explore on all day on one side, and a private sand pebble beach for swimming and building sand castles on the other side. We are two cottages away from East Point Park, where the orcas travel on a regular basis. Sit down on the sandstone rocks and wait for their arrival. You will be so close you could reach out and touch one, but we advise you use your camera instead! Watch the sea lions, seals and, dolphins frolic in the ocean as you relax on the front lawn. Be amazed by the bald eagles diving for their dinner, and be prepared to be startled by a deer nibbling the tree outside the living room window. Your stay also gives you access to 44 acres of private hiking trails for your dog to enjoy off leash walks. The cottage is fully equipped with linens, towels, full kitchen, and an outdoor propane barbeque. The road to our retreat is well paved and great for biking. Bring your boat, kayak, sailboat, or canoe and launch it at our private boat ramp.

If you are using your GPS to find us, please use the address 723 Tumbo Channel Road, Saturna Island.

For long weekends: Easter, Memorial Day, Thanksgiving, there is a 3-night minimum stay.

A Perfect Get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Tucked away on a private point, this cozy cottage has fabulous views! RIght at the water's edge, there are glorious sunsets down the channel to the left, and a white shell beach to the right, great for a swim. East Point and the light house are just steps away. The whales swam by Wednesday morning! We loved the cottage. It is cute, comfortable and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. We felt immediately at home. We dined on the porch in the evening, and had great sleeps in the comfy bed. We'd have coffee and a fire in the fireplace in the morning, tucked into one of the window seats, enjoying the abundant wildlife. JO was very friendly, responsive and informative. HIghly recommended! We didn't want to leave. And we will definitely be back.

Magical!

  • 5 of 5

This property was a much needed escape from the everyday. Very private. Well equipped. Easy access to the water and to the East Point of Saturna. It was the perfect location from which to encounter wildlife, particularly the orcas. The owner was extremely approachable, and answered any questions we had almost immediately. We would most certainly return to this property.

Had a magical time!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jo for sharing this beautiful spot! We didn't see any whales but we did see: sea lions, seals, eagles, nesting swallows, cicadas (just hatched), friendly deer and shiny jumping fish aplenty.

We couldn't get enough of East Point and will be back for sure! The cabin was cozy and had everything we needed. It was absolutely perfect. Thanks again.

Everything we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage is very well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We found it very clean and cozy. The location Is perfect, secluded and only a quick stroll from the point where the views are spectacular and the wildlife plenty. Jo was easy to reach for any questions we had and she has a binder with maps and details on things to know about Saturna Island - we found it very helpful. Saturna is a lovely island with lots of shore access and good walking trails. Join in with the islanders and wave when you meet oncoming traffic - such a nice, fun islander way of keeping this community friendly and welcoming!

Peaceful and Beautiful Saturna Island

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the cottage on Saturna was wonderful! It is located on a very special point at the southeast end of the island where there is an abundance of wildlife, beaches to roam, a lovely meadow and incredible views all around. The cottage is simple, but well equipped and well cared for to make your stay super comfortable. My correspondence with Jo was delightful and she was quick to respond to any questions prior to our stay. Hope to return and see the Orca whales!

Saturna Island is the Southernmost of the Gulf Islands. Its small population and remote location make it ideal for vacationers looking for a real get-away from the daily grind.

Much of Saturna falls within the Parks Canada Gulf Islands National Park Reserve and provides hiking, whale watching, biking and other opportunities to re-connect with the spectacular nature of the Gulf Islands.
