Recent Galiano Island property reviews

  • Thank you!

    "We very much enjoyed our stay at Bluff View. Better than advertised. We arrived to a warmly lit, cozy and very clean (thank you!) space with plenty of room for our family of 4. Stefan was there to greet us. There was wood for the wood stove, a well stocked kitchen, and remarkably great water pressure in the shower. Tastefully and modestly decorated, the space provided exactly the cozy and easy retreat we were looking for. The floor to ceiling windows were perfect. Our entire family would spend hours nestled in the comfy sofas window-side with a fire roaring in the wood fireplace."

  • Lovely Cottage

    "We had a wonderful stay at this cottage. The pictures did not do it justice! It was the perfect vacation for our family of four. We had a great time playing in the water in front of the cottage, relaxing on the awesome deck and walking over to Scoops to get our daily ice cream fix. We hope we can make it back here next summer!"

  • It depends...

    "Let’s get one thing straight. There are better places than “Galiano Getaway”. Statistically, it’s very likely that within our own galaxy’s 40-odd billion earth-sized planets in those habitable zones of sun-like red dwarf stars you will find at least half a dozen better properties. That is if you are moved by houses nestled in forests populated by great stalwart (advanced second-growth) Douglas and teasing half-naked beautiful twisting Arbutus trees on all sides, a sloping forest floor patchwork of moss-covered rocks of many sizes and colours, dappled with strewn Arbutus leaves, all of it primeval, enchanted; or by a broad balcony hosting easy chairs, a dinner table and a barbecue grill and accommodating itself brilliantly to a wide, Westward view of rosy-blue dawns, orange sunsets, cloudless full-moon-lit skies (Thursday and Friday) over the muted ripples of Tricomali Strait waters of the Salish Sea; or by cozy indoor living spaces, crackling woodstove fires on a surprising great hearth-stone and well-stocked bookshelves and video drawers; for such folk, like for our family, it will seem a privilege to have experienced this unforgettable enchanted place. But it all depends on what one likes and how far one is prepared to travel."

  • Peaceful and Tranquil - Perfect Place to Unwind

    "We had a wonderful week at this oceanfront cottage. Sheila greeted us on arrival, and pointed out that the whales (orcas) were coming through the Active Pass. We saw them nearly every day, as well as otters, seals, deer, a raccoon, bald eagles and other birds such as cedar waxwings, turkey vultures, kingfishers and herons. This cottage has the perfect setting, and the large windows give a great view. The sunrises were spectacular, and there were shore access points to enjoy at a few minutes' walk away. Galiano Island has that "get away from it all" feel, with a slower, gentler pace of life. The cottage is in keeping with that, and has a beautiful old-fashioned charm about it. We enjoyed walking down to the bakery and book shop at Sturdies Bay, and also the Saturday Market. The Bluffs, Bellhouse Provincial Park, Arbutus Point Road and the shore access points at Mary Ann Road were great places to walk with our dogs. Thank you Sheila and Keith for sharing this property with us and allowing us to bring our dogs, who also had a great time."
