Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3.5 Baths

Saturna Seaside is a beautiful, spacious (3400 available sq ft) oceanfront home in the Canadian Gulf Islands on Saturna Island.

Some of this home's most compelling features are the breathtaking views of Winter Cove, Samuel Island, Boat Pass, Anniversary Island and the lights of Grouse Mountain at night.

While cooking dinner, or relaxing in the living room or on the deck of Saturna Seaside, one can view the spectacular sunset, watch the boats negotiate the challenging waters of Boat Pass, or watch your guests play in the water below. Saturna Seaside offers seclusion from bustle and crowds. It is ideal for adults or families seeking a relaxing and recreational retreat from hectic lives.

Our private walk-on beach access makes water play and kayak launching a dream. The two lawn areas, one ocean side and one forest side, are great for volleyball, badminton, croquet or simply lounging.

The rooms at Saturna Seaside are spacious and comfortable. Saturna Island itself offers pristine forest, mountain, coastal and marine environments that one can explore on bike, on foot or by boat. We've spotted eagles, herons, otters, deer and seals near our home and whales within a 15 minute drive.

Please note: Since it is almost impossible to complete all transactions (rental agreement written, received, reviewed, signed and received back), all within the 24 hour after a booking request or BOOK-IT is made with HOMEAWAY or VRBO, booking requests for dates starting less than 72 hours from booking request will probably be denied. Please see our SaturnaSeaside.... web site.

Why Maureen McNally chose Southern Gulf Islands

Steve grew up in the Lower Mainland. While visiting family we often vacationed in BC. We toured and vacationed over the years in many of the Gulf Islands before we found this house, this setting, this island. We love our home!

Spectacular Location! Large well maintained home!

  • 5 of 5

We usually stay with friends when we travel to Saturna, but this year we knew friends accommodations would be limited because we were going to an "almost family" wedding. We couldn't have picked a better place. The view and and the home were perfect for us. We used the kayaks in Winter Cove, walked the Nature Trails and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home was well cared for and our needs seemed to have been anticipated. BTW...We loved the labels! It felt as if there was a silent host welcoming us!

We had a very special stay, enjoyed a wedding just up the road....and touched base with our restorative....Saturna Island.

Amazing views

  • 4 of 5

This beautiful waterfront home was the perfect setting for a quiet and restful get-away. The accommodation is extremely comfortable. We have no complaints and would say only that although very well maintained, the home itself and appliances are dated. Everything was in perfect condition and extremely clean. We appreciated the complimentary use of kayaks and bicycles. We would certainly recommend it and would not hesitate to return.

Well appointed and professionally run

  • 5 of 5

A special place with lots of nice surprises. Great for larger groups, and fun for everyone.

We had a great time as a small family as well.

Kayaking is a big part of the fun. We also have to give a big recommendation to Fred at kayakingskills.com . Incredibly genuine and professional kayaking instruction for all levels. Super guide to the island in general as well.

Enjoy!

Fantastic property, location and amenities (would give 10 stars if it was an option)

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed Aug 12-19th 2017 and the time just flew by, a week is not enough. I have given other properties 5 stars, but I would give this a 10 star in comparison. Very quiet location, pass 2 houses to get to National Park and hiking trails or a stroll along the beach at low tide. Property has everything you need for the whole family to have fun, kayaks, bikes (we actually had bikes with us but would use these in the future), beach access from the property, abundant wildlife viewed easily from the property, outdoor games and entertainment room with pool and darts for when the sun goes down. Lots of space in every room and all the amenities you need to have fun on this relatively remote island. This is where we will stay whenever we are in the area, very memorable vacation, owner straight forward to deal with. I very much recommend including the King Suite in your rental. Thanks Maureen.

Quiet paradise...

  • 5 of 5

For the second summer our extended family has enjoyed this roomy, and perfectly located cottage (House). I don't think we'll ever tire of kayaking, biking, walking to boat pass or exploring Saturna island.
