I can't begin to describe the sunsets. They must be experienced.

Bowen Island bed and breakfast description

Architecturally unique, west coast modern dwelling. Curved design of house and roofs with floor-to-ceiling windows throughout. Green roof design using native grasses and sedums (planned for Spring 2013). A 'Green' build with goals of energy conservation and rainwater collection.

Spacious studio with contemporary interior/modern furnishings. Bright and light with vaulted curved ceiling and wall-to-wall windows overlooking a green roof and views of the coast/mountain ranges beyond. Private entrance and deck.

Spectacular sunsets, coastal island/ocean views as far as you can see. Mossy bluffs smothered in foxgloves in Spring followed by waving, golden grasses in summer. Gnarly, weathered old firs, roots dug deep into the bedrock to withstand the channel winds, dark silhouettes against a big sky and even bigger ocean.

A small community, surrounded by rainforest, fern valleys, moss covered bluffs and easy walking trails. Short woodland stroll to one of Bowen's best public swimming beaches in Bowen Bay.

We believe you will find our setting and amenities to be exceptional here on the Bluffs. We look forward to welcoming you!

              Location

              Car: Recommended

              'The Bluffs' is located on the west (sunset) side of Bowen Island in a very small community surrounded by designated parkland (Evergreen Park). It is a 15 min. stroll though forest trails to one of Bowen's best swimming beaches. The suite is nestled on a mossy ridge of steep bluffs, smothered in foxgloves in the summer and framed by gnarled, weathered old fir trees. It overlooks a deep valley and a spectacular coastline view stretching to the horizon. The sunsets viewed through floor-to-ceiling windows are spectacular, vibrant and ever-changing.

              Start your day with a walk or run through the rainforest on easy trails that are right outside your door.

              A diversity of pond and bird life abounds. A naturalistic garden, designed by the owner (Artist in the Garden Designs), melds house and wild surroundings into a harmonious relationship of both composed beauty and wildlife habitat.

              The entrance to your suite entrance winds through the garden, past the ponds, and leads to a private entrance and deck.

              If you like to walk, hike, swim or kayak; are a creative soul, e.g., a writer, a photographer or other professional needing a place to re-charge; are celebrating a special occasion, or just want to enjoy a relaxing and restorative place in close relationship with nature, we may be just what you are looking for. Create for yourself a wonderful and unforgettable experience here on 'the Bluffs'. We'll help.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: I was born to this coast and have a deep love for its rugged beauty and wild nature. In my work as a landscape designer and artist, I specializing in naturalistic gardens that are harmonious and in context with their wild surroundings. The creation and design of this house and landscape is a culmination of many years of imagining and desire to put down roots and I feel very fortunate to have found a home here. I love to share my experience of this special place with others and I am now able to do that through the creation of 'The Bluffs'.

              Why the Owner Chose Bowen Island:
              This is a new development that opened up on the west side of the island. The ridge is home to 7 bluff lots with spectacular coastal views. Notwithstanding the wondrous natural setting, the philosophy behind the development was what attracted me to build and live here. The developer has stringent guidelines to protect the environment including maximum house sizes, water conservation (roof water collection), sustainability and energy conservation (Builtgreen). It felt right to build here.

              The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
              The winding one lane road through the rainforest opening up on to moss covered bluffs and, then, the ocean/sky views from the bluff. It was love at first sight.
