  • Happy Guest

    "What a fantastic spot! Beautiful beach just steps away! We had 3 adults and 3 kids and everyone enjoyed this place to the max. The house is very comfortable and the patio overlooking the beach is divine! We spent hours there alone and on the beach. All I can say is that 2 nights was not close to enough."

  • Beautiful Cottage in a Stunning Location

    "Just returned from an amazing 4-day getaway with two girlfriends at Garden Beach Cottage! By far one of the nicest cottages I've ever had the pleasure of renting: the location is stunning and right on the beach. I've never seen so many eagles and deer from that close up. The cottage itself is extremely well-maintained, was spotless upon our arrival, and features multiple levels of sprawling decks for eating and lounging. The decor was well chosen and extremely charming (beautiful vintage stove!), and was so well outfitted. Anything you could possibly need is probably in the cupboard. Plastic wrap, wax paper, a couple dozen different kinds of dried herbs, a hair dryer, floatation devices for going in the water - all the little things I usually forget to pack while travelling but that make your stay way more comfortable. Plus the things other cottages tend to skimp on, like towels and robes… there was an abundance of fluffy towels so we never had to worry about doing laundry during our stay (though there was a washer/dryer if we had needed to). The owner obviously takes a lot of pride in this property and in being an amazing host. Thank you for everything, we will definitely be back!"

  • Wonderful time!

    "We enjoyed the quiet setting and the beautiful show home. We appreciated all the amenities, including a small step stool (handy for two petite women!!). Hope to visit again sometime! Thank you."

  • Amazing, comfortable and beautiful view!

    "Our trip to Pender Island was amazing. Not only is the Island beautiful, the cottage was clean, comfortable and the views fantastic. The hot tub was great to sit and enjoy the views day and night. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds so comfortable. The walk down to the beach is an easy hill to walk (even with bad knees). We loved to sit and watch the ferries go by and even saw otters, sea lions and whales playing in the bay. By far one of the best places I have stayed in the Gulf Islands. Thanks so much Bill and Diane for sharing your cottage and property."

Mayne Island Travel Tips

Sheer Simplicity: Mayne Island Vacation Rentals

Settled in the Gulf of Georgia, among the southern regions of British Columbia, is Mayne Island; a picturesque stretch of sand and sun. This collection of lighthouses, heritage museums, and forestry provides the ideal location for those seeking a different kind of holiday. It will be a vacation without the frantic pace and even more frantic strangers. Surround yourself with local beauty and local charm, all from the comfort of one of the many Mayne Island vacation rentals.

Find Nature Once Again With Mayne Island Accommodations

For the family longing for a gentler escape, look no further than Mayne Island. There you will find an offering of biking trails (especially popular due to the distinct lack of traffic on the roads), pleasure cruises (complete with whale watching), and scheduled walkabouts. Learn of a celebrated history with such treats as the Plumper Pass Lockup, a jail turned museum. The famed Japanese Garden; which reflects the rare bursts of outside influences is also a family favorite. Discover this quaint destination and give your family something to enjoy every day. And, of course, enjoy every evening by returning to the comfort of your vacation home.

British Columbia Lodging Offers Elegance and Ease

Mayne Island is beautiful. Relax on the island your entire vacation to avoid the inconvenience of shuttling back to the mainland every afternoon, having to struggle to reach a hotel. Why not instead remain on the shoreline, nestled between the sea and spectacular views? Rental houses allow you to do that. Spend your vacation with the convenience of spacious rooms, centralized locations, and immediate access to fun.

Don’t waste your time with the common retreats. Flee instead to where there are languid hours, calm twilights, and the satisfaction of memories well made. Mayne Island is the perfect answer to your family’s vacation woes. It’s waiting.
