                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: Ron is a professional accountant , continuing to work part-time in his public practice. Marilyn has retired as his office manager & is now full time on their beautiful oceanfront property. She is experiencing much personal fulfillment in hosting the many guests who stay at the cottage. We have 3 grown children & 5 grandchildren, who bring great joy to our lives. We are very fortunate to have travelled to several different destinations around the world, and always enjoy the opportunity to experience different cultures. A few of our favorite activities include snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, boating, golfing, reading & entertaining friends.

                      Why the Owner Chose Garden Bay:
                      This vacation rental is on the property of our new home here in Daniel Point, Garden Bay, BC. We purchased the oceanfront lot in 2003 and waited until 2009 to begin the building of our home. As Ron was getting closer to retiring from his practice we felt it was time to realize our dream of living by the ocean. So here we are!! And we love it so much we thought we should share it with others! The cottage is private, being set about 150 feet up the lane from the main house.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      We are sure you will enjoy the beauty & serenity of this place, as we do. The ocean is about 250 feet from the cottage & is accessible for those able to do stairs . At the water's edge their is a flat outcropping of rock, allowing for some exploring of the fascinating marine life (particularily seastars). For the adventurist, we also have 2 sea kayaks available to you.
