Property description

Beautiful waterfront home overlooking Active Pass on Galiano Island. Gaze out over the ocean from floor to ceiling windows in living room, dining room and master bedroom. See Orca whales swim by, deer walking the garden and eagles fishing - all from your living room!
Enjoy the private, heated outdoor swimming pool in the summer months and cozy, infrared sauna in the winter.

Walking distance to Sturdies Bay ferry terminal and stores/ restaurants . Private access to beach directly in front of house - sandy swimming beach and good for kayak launching. Great hikes up the bluffs with magnificent views of the Gulf Islands.

We love Galiano and this fantastic house and look forward to sharing it with you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Keith is a family doc working in Vancouver, BC. Sheila is the creative force in the family and comes up with all the good ideas, in addition to looking after the cats, dog and kid. We love spending time outdoors, particularly on Galiano Island - Sheila made her first trip to Galiano aged 2 weeks old and easily convinced the family it was the place to spend lots of time.

Why the Owner Chose Galiano Island:
Sheila is rumored as wanting to buy this house since she was 3 years old! Her mom's cottage is right next door, and the house was owned by a very good friend and mentor figure to Sheila from her childhood ( and fellow horse lover). We have always cherished this house from all our visits there over the years, all our many fantastic swims in the pool and generally wonderful memories. We are so fortunate to now own this incredible place on this wonderful island.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You feel a great peace on stepping into this house and gazing out of the huge windows looking out over Active Pass, with its ever changing vista. The views from the living room, dining room and bedroom are entrancing. The bright and cozy kitchen is just the place for endless cups of coffee and tea and chatting. It's amazing being able to swim in the pool and suddenly hear the spouting of whales in the pass and then seeing them from the pool deck!
