Saturna Island cottage description
Orcas Paradise. Hyak Cottage at Eastpoint on Saturna Island. Literally right next to the famous Eastpoint park where the orcas pass through almost every day from May to September. It is not unusual to see several pods together with 40 or more orcas at a time. You can even catch them passing through Tumbo Channel, between us and Tumbo Island.
Leave the city behind. Unplug and relax at our large modern 2 bedroom cottage. Enjoy breath-taking views of the Pacific Ocean, small island groups, and mountains including majestic Mount Baker, through our floor to ceiling windows all along the front of the cottage. Watch the orcas, sea lions, porpoises. deer, eagles and all manner of wild life from our large comfortable balcony. As evening approaches, sit back with a cool drink and enjoy the spectacular sunset over Tumbo Channel.
Wilderness Galore! Now that you have relaxed, you might want to explore our 53 private acres. You will find only six cottages on the waterfront of this expansive property. Kick off your shoes and walk along our crushed shell beach mmm feels good!!!!!! Or check out our sandy beach. Explore the tidal pools just beyond on another day. Or perhaps you have brought a boat; launch it at our boat launch on site. Cross the road and you will find 44 wooded acres to hike in. This is our private property so if you have a dog, let it loose.
This orca paradise is located at Eastpoint, on Saturna Island, just out of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Take B.C. Ferries from Tsawwassen (Vancouver) or from Vancouver Island at Swartz Bay (Victoria). US ferry connection is from Port Angeles to Victoria Harbour.

A Bit Misleading
A Bit Misleading
In the interests of fairness, this area is beautiful and the cottage is perfectly fine. However... it is not waterfront and its view, while certainly lovely, is blocked by the less expensive cottages which actually are waterfront. To get to the water, one must hike down a hillside through the tall grasses and past the waterfront cottages. The photos you see were certainly not taken from this cottage. A wood-burning fireplace is listed but is not part of this cottage. To be fair, my stay started a bit badly. The owner had given me a code to get in, but since I arrived after dark it was almost impossible to work. Knowing what time my ferry arrived, the simple consideration of turning on the porch light would have made all the difference. As it was, it took me 45 minutes and several broken fingernails to actually gain entrance. Repeated phone calls to the owner went unanswered until the next day. (I had foolishly agreed to pay the full amount up-front and there was no contract.) Eager for the comfort of a warm bath, I was greeted by a stingy trickle in the shower and a non-working tub-stopper. The cottage was clean enough. A few black hairs really aren't too much of a bother. The sheets were clean. That said, the area is quiet and beautiful. The few activities that exist on the island are about a 30-minute drive (kayaking, winery, groceries), but I didn't come here for a lot of activity. If you want solitude and aren't too picky about a place perfectly matching its description then I could recommend this cottage.
