"Loved our 4-day stay at this cottage. It is very private, in a wooded area right on the waterside. The views are spectacular. The cottage is well-appointed and has everything you need. Beaches are steps away, and East Point is very close as well. Saturna Island is beautiful, with lots of hiking and kayaking opportunities, and has quite a lot of wildlife. We saw deer, otters, eagles, orcas, little snakes, oyster catchers, and no end of other birds. Don't let the ferry times deter you, because it's a lovely ride and a joy by itself."

"We arrived with the intent of having family join us which did and did not happen. We almost didn't book here as we had some communication difficulty with the owner. We are so happy we were able to connect and that we did get to stay here. The place is a little worn, but this is an island retreat and we felt quite comfortable and cozy here.
The location is awesome. Right on the water. That being said for the first few days we despaired of launching our kayaks in front of the house due to lots of wind. We took them down to Winter Cove where had no trouble. The winds settled down and we were able to launch from the house and explore Cabbage Island and Tumbo Island. The snorkelling right here was awesome... the sea stars were huge!
We also enjoyed biking from here to East Point and Winter Cove. The ride down to the ferry and back involves a lot of long and/or steep hills and we did not enjoy that ride very much.
The neighbours said feel free to wander both directions along the old road that runs by the cabins at the waterfront. (Except don't go near 405 if she is home)
We were not 100% sure of the appliances here so we brought our bread maker which we used a lot. The best thing we brought though was a crock pot. This was very handy as the oven was out of commission for few days. We did see that there were all the small appliances a person may need but having brought ours.. we never tried them out.
While so many areas commented on the water shortages and we practiced water conservation while here, it was never a problem. We were glad there was a compost.
We also brought lots of extra TP, kleenex, cling wrap, foil, baggies, but found that the house was well stocked. We also basically just brought the contents of our fridge as our stay was three weeks.
Once you arrive on the Island stop at the general store and get a Scribbler. This little book gives you all the details of what is happening on the island, where to recycle your paper, cans, glass, styrofoam etc, important phone numbers, church services and the works. Darryl, who will pick up the garbage for a fee, brought out two frisbees for the golf course, left them on the table and we left him the money. We never locked our car the whole time we were here. We felt so safe and the locals are all wonderful.
We especially loved the Parks programmes at East Point on the Friday nights. If you have children they will enjoy the parks programme at Winter Cove on the Sundays."

"We were pleased to find this cabin was pet friendly; it was everything it was described to be. We really appreciated how welcomed our two large dogs were - there was a dog bed by the patio and bowls under the sink. It was clean, and well stocked with everything we needed to have a comfortable stay. The resort was almost empty during our stay adding to the peacefulness of the setting. We felt as though we were a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of our daily life, very relaxing. The extended time required to get to and from the island was well worth it. We were not fortunate to see any whales during our two night stay, but we did see a plethora of other marine life and birds during our many hours exploring the beaches and bluffs - eagles cackling it the large fir trees on the grounds, seal lions grumbling from their haul out off the point, seals curiously stalking us (and the dogs) as we walked the shoreline. We enjoyed every minute we were able to spend here. Our stay was much too short, and we will be back! I would recommend the east point cottages to anyone looking to get away from it all and unwind. Thank you."
