Galiano Island house description

Enjoy stunning panoramic views of the Straight of Georgia and the snow-capped North Shore Mountains from our beautiful, rustic oceanfront cottage. Watch otters, seals, bald eagles, and deer while you enjoy your morning cup of coffee from the sandstone beach, the wrap-around deck, or even the second floor master bedroom.

You might even see a pod of killer whales, or in the spring and fall, migrating sea lions. Wake up in the master bedroom`s huge bed to sunrises over the mountains or star gaze at night through the large skylight. Enjoy drinks and meals on the deck while you watch the spectacular sunsets and, after dark, the lights of Vancouver.

The house is tastefully decorated and equipped with all the basics you may need. Both the Master bedroom and second bedroom overlook the ocean and mountains. The Master bedroom has a larger than king size bed and a large skylight for star-gazing at night. The second bedroom has a queen size bed. Each of the other two bedrooms have sleeping lofts and 2 twin beds.

The Hot Tub is nestled into the natural landscape just off of the beach, overlooking the ocean. Enjoy gorgeous night time views of the lights of Vancouver, and in the summer, the sunrise and sunset.

The property is just 10 minutes by car from the ferry and minutes away from stores, restaurants and the pub by car or bike. It sits on 300 feet of low bank, sandstone waterfront and about 7 private wooded acres. There are extensive lawns for lounging or playing games as well as a large pond.

                  About the owner: We fell in love with Galiano Island about 25 years ago, and have been both full-time residents and 'weekenders'. We currently live in Vancouver and hope to return to Galiano full time one day.

                  Why the Owner Chose Galiano Island:
                  As past full-time residents, we knew exactly what we were looking for in a Galiano home. This property has it all: 300 feet of beachfront, 7 acres of private forest, gorgeous sunrises and sunsets in the summer, a wrap-around deck, lots of windows, wood stove, hot tub...
