  • 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."

  • Fantastic View and Great Managers

    "Great Location and great view of the Inner Habour. Better still are Trish & Steve who look after your every need and make it a joy to stay. They have a great welcome package to get you started and are very helpful on where to shop, have a coffee and where to get the best Sticky Cinnamon Buns. If you want to relax and enjoy Victoia- this is the one of the best places to stay or other units that Trish and Steve manage."

Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend to others. Loved our stay.l thanks so to you both. Barbara and Gary"

  • We didn't want to leave!

    "We enjoyed a very peaceful week at Seabreeze Cottage. Our favorite pastime was sitting on the wraparound deck with a drink or a meal, watching the wildlife (a heron and seals, among others), the yachts and the ferries. It was also a great base for exploring the island. It was always a dilemma whether to try the many excellent restaurants or stay home and enjoy the view. Our 6-year-old daughter was especially thrilled with the bunk beds and the Battleship game."

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.
