Gambier Island cabin description

Located only 1 hour from downtown Vancouver, Fircom is a short boat ride off of West Vancouver. The Cottage is perfect for a small family reunion, a group of friends, or a work retreat. Cozy up to the fire place or wile the evening away playing cards on the deck.

The two bedrooms both have Queen sized beds. The living room has a sofa bed which can be pulled out to make space for an extra person. The bathroom has a tub/shower, sink and toilet.

The spacious kitchen comes well-equipped for having two people making dinner, another prepping snacks and someone mixing drinks at the same time. The kitchen includes a new oven, fridge, and gas BBQ with all the spices and utensiles you need make cooking a breeze.

The Cottage is just minutes from the government dock and a finely pebbled beach for swimming or snorkeling. Our remote location offers unparalleled opportunity to view wildlife such as hummingbirds, deer, eagles, and seals in their natural habitat. There are no stores and few neighbors making this truly a chance to unwind.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: Fircom is a non-profit society that runs a summer camp for children, youth and families. The cottage is our new vacation rental located in a secluded manner to the main site. We have recently undergone a $7.5 million renovation as we have been around since 1923!

                  Why the Owner Chose Gambier Island:
                  This cottage is amazing since you don't have to travel for hours through traffic. You can be whisked away by water taxi to a remote location in under an hour.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Fircom is a 120-acre property connected to Halkett Bay Provincial Park. Sipping your coffee in the morning at the Gazebo at Upper Lookout or having a campfire next to the ocean and really being able to see the stars are my favourite things about staying at the Cottage.
