Take your vacation steps away from the lapping waves of Howe Sound, just 1.5 hours from downtown Vancouver. Awake to the sound of eagles, gulls and buzzing hummingbirds. Sunbathe, swim or hike during the day. Smell the sea breeze and relax in the lush temperate rainforest of our laid back island. The endless view extends beyond Howe Sound and its islands to distant Vancouver Island across Georgia Strait. Sea Cottage is a cute, restored 1950's bungalow.
You can reach us by taking a BC Ferry from Horseshoe Bay (30 minutes from downtown Vancouver) to Langdale then water taxi ferry from Langdale to New Brighton on Gambier Island. We can help you with travel advice and will meet you at New Brighton.

About the owner: Your hosts Bob and Joley Switzer have both had interesting professional lives; Bob as a Canadian Broadcasting television host and beloved Canadian Gardener, and Joley as a park naturalist, professional dancer and administrator with Metro Vancouver.
Why the Owner Chose Gambier Island: Sea Cottage is old family property and built on the oceanfront when it was still legal to do so. It is a summer cottage, full of memories of swimming and days playing in the sun and rain, and hiking into the upland forest. It's good for the soul.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: The endless view, the sounds of the sea, the ever changing boats and sea animals are always interesting.
