You may wish to bring food though we have a grocery store 5 mins away. Prices are slightly higher than on the mainland.

About Texada Island

Texada Island is a small, self sustained community - with 2 grocery stores (incl alcohol), gas station, post office, restaurants, marina, provincial park, and a unique quarry lake full of minerals.

Close to the Sunshine Coast / Powell River and 5+ hours** from Vancouver by a few ferry rides combined with driving, Texada Island is the largest of the Gulf Islands with so much to offer. Across from Comox, Vancouver Island on the Malaspina Strait.

A half-hour ferry takes you to Powell River which is a relatively big city with big box stores such as Canadian Tire and Walmart.

About Nicole

We are a family with young kids who live in Vancouver and, cliche as it sounds, fell in love with Texada on a short visit.

We love ocean views and this cozy log cabin was the perfect fit! We love that this island has a real sense of community, but also is a perfect getaway from the city and a place for memories to be made. A place for recharging one's senses and where people are real and super friendly! We hope to share this island experience with you.

Nicole purchased this cabin in 2016

We had a lovely stay at the Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Beach House over the Christmas holidays and enjoyed the peace and quiet of the surroundings and the views - the kitchen was well stocked for our cooking needs and we had a lovely, relaxing time away from it all.

Quiet, Relaxing, Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our recent stay at the Beach House on Texada Island! The cabin was well equipped and comfortable with all the amenities we needed. The deck was large and ideal for relaxing in the afternoon sun. There is a short path down to the beach where we spent most of our time. The water is quite shallow so we were able to walk out a long ways into water that wasn't very cold, as well as relax on the sandy beach when the tide is out. Gillies Bay is a quiet peaceful little town with a General Store that has everything you need. This is our 5th time to Texada Island for summer vacation and we've never been disappointed.

Our host Nicole responded quickly to our questions and emails and was awesome to deal with. We highly recommend the Beach House!

Fantastic, quiet, fun filled

  • 5 of 5

Our family would like to take a moment to recognize the beautiful accommodations at The Beach House Texada. We shared this stunning beach front cabin with our sister and her family. From the moment we drove up we were very impressed. The beach house has a quaint , rustic, relaxing a feel to it The interior was very clean and inviting. The large front window and balcony gives you an unobstructed view of the spectacular ocean and beach, all just steps away. The beds and linens were extremely comfortable and we all were able to catch up on some much needed sleep. The beach house provides you with everything you could ask for , clean appliances, fully stocked cabinets and a washer and dryer. It really made for the perfect getaway. We would definitely recommend it!!

Relaxing and so very beautiful. Views can not be beat!

  • 4 of 5

Outstanding views from a lovely log cabin. Hours are easily spent on the great deck watching sealife frolic. We can not wait to return and do absolutely nothing but relax here. Nicole was very nice to deal with and made the process smooth. Thank you. We enjoyed our stay very much. Perhaps just not set up yet for the season but a bbq would be a nice addition to the deck:-)!!
