Manager info

Year Purchased: 1950

About: As a long-time resident of Bowen Island, I love to share my very special vacation home, the Hollybarry Cottage with visitors. The cottage was built in 1958 and renovated in 1995. I named it after my now-adult children, Holly and Barry. I live next door on the property and take great pride in maintaining both of the seasonal gardens. I am still very active and love to golf at the Bowen Island Golf Club. But, being that I am no longer a spring chicken, I have stepped back from the day-to-day management of the Hollybarry Cottage and turned it over to our neighbour and friend, Jan Stevens. She will take very good care of you. Please say “Hi” to me if you see me in the garden or taking a swim down at the beach. I would love to meet you. Enjoy!! Jean Cleator

Why Bowen Island:
In 1958 my husband and I purchased the land on which Hollybarry Cottage was built after friends introduced us to their summer cottage next door. We had a young family at that time, so a cottage near the city where the children could spend their summers swimming at the nearby community beach and picking berries - and we could enjoy a wonderful view - was ideal.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love the sunny southerly ocean and mountain views from our property which is unique considering we are on the east side of Bowen. Access to our vacation home is an easy drive from Snug Cove: only 8 minutes or 3 km. But for those that prefer to travel via bus, we are fortunate to be along the C11 Eagle Cliff Bus route. Ask and we will send you the bus schedule. In spite of being along a main road, Eagle Cliff, we have no street lights, no traffic, no sidewalks………..just a quiet rural destination that truly feels like another world and only 30 minutes from the city.
