Car: Recommended

Galiano Gardens is a 12 acre secluded & private inland property. Surrounded by large pine, fir, cedar etc. Just a few minutes walk to one of the many beaches on the island. Take the trail in the back of the property for a 45 minute hike up to the top of Mt. Galiano(aprox. 900ft) & marvel at the beautiful view of the southern gulf islands! Fishing excursions are offered by several Charter boats from Montague Harbour just 4 minutes drive. If u want to get away from it all, this property will do just that & in just a 50 minute direct ferry ride from Vancouver's Tsawwassen terminal.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My wife Deanne & I purchased this gem on Galiano Island in 2011 & have enjoyed the property with family & friends every chance we get. Our year round family home is in Cloverdale, BC(30 min. from Vancouver) and it's just a 35 minute drive to the Tswwassen ferry terminal for quick weekend getaways.

Why the Owner Chose Galiano Island:
We chose Galiano Island since it is the closest of the Southern Gulf Islands from Greater Vancouver where we have our year round home. With 3 children in sports & other activities it's difficult to get away regularly so we decided to offer the property to other's to enjoy. Galiano Island has many deer as there are no predators(no bear/cougars etc.), very safe for children that want to roam.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
When the birds stop singing in the evening, the silence is very comforting & the stars are brilliant. Walk the gardens during the day & you will always come across a unique bird or flower etc.
