Gowlland Harbour Beach House - Quadra Island

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Large Windows & Cathedral Ceiling

The open-concept living and dining area has a cathedral ceiling and looks out onto the deck and ocean through windows and glass patio doors.

The well-equipped kitchen is ideal for preparing meals while socializing with companions in the living area. The house has light, airy, and luxurious living quarters for a relaxing holiday.

West-facing Sun Deck

The 3-sided deck offers a choice of scenery: a small waterfall and pond built on the one side of the house, the private hot tub on the opposite side, and the front deck which overlooks Gowlland Harbour and the distant mountains on Vancouver Island. Enjoy the sun-soaked deck; this is certainly the warmest spot on Quadra!

Complimentary Dockage

The dock is ideal for storing a private boat, a boat rental from the resort at the other end of the inlet, or for an early morning pickup from a chartered fishing guide. Kayaking, canoeing and swimming are all possible since the harbour is protected from currents by Gowland Island.

Mature Kids Welcome

Due to the location of the beach house and the property's steep hillside, we request mature children only.

Beautiful Landscaping

The approach to the beach house leads you through the estate, which is filled with gardens, past the main house and down a steep, paved driveway to the ocean. Winding walkways and the constant background melody of waterfalls provides privacy from occasional use of the boat house by the owners.Pricing based on 2 Guests. Additional Guests cost $20/night. High season pricing applies to all Holidays. *All seasons, 4 nights minimum stay.

Beautiful setting but quite small quarters for two couples and one of the bathrooms is accessed by g

Maybe because we were at the end of the season but basic essentials like salt and sugar were not at hand. But Will, the handyman, provided salt and replaced the lamp and coffee maker that were broken in a timely fashion.

Lovely home in a gorgeous location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time in this comfortable, clean and well appointed home on beautiful Gowland Harbour. The dock was convenient and allowed us access to the water. The hot tub was an added bonus. The house itself was beautifully appointed and had every convenience needed to make our stay memorable. Our hosts, the owners who were on site in the "big house" and the gardener/handyman, were extremely courteous and friendly. In short, we wanted for nothing. In addition, the local representative of the rental company was on hand to make sure we had a trouble free stay. The fabulous wether also helped! Thanks to everyone for a great vacation. We hope to be back!

Fun cottage

  • 4 of 5

What a beautiful location. The cottage extends over the water, with a deck and pier. The deck is a wonderful way to wind down at the end of the day, or a delightful place to have coffee waking in the morning. The location is close to a few shops, places to eat and a great whale watching company (I highly recommend that experience, we saw at least 30 whales).

The cottage has 2 bathrooms which is a added bonus.

The property was clean. Well stocked kitchen .

The property management was available and close to the property.

If you have a dog, great place to bring them. Bowls of water on the street, very pet friend. We had to satisfy our dog pets to dogs in the area. I found Vancouver Island to be the dog friendliest place I have ever visited.

The cottage is comfortable and fun. It fit our needs perfectly. That said , if you are looking for 5 star accommodations, this is not the place.
