As of October 2018 this property will be rented on a monthly basis only. For the past 10 years people have enjoyed coming to the house to gather as groups and families (not to mention guests have injected hundreds of thousands of dollars into the local economy)
Now, the local Island Trust is moving to shut down short-term vacation rentals. Feel free to email them your thoughts on their short-sighted approach to this issue.
If you love privacy, afternoon sun, sunsets, stars at night in a forest setting, ocean views, mountains, big sky, eagles, and deer, then this is the place for you.
Mayne Island is the most historical of the Gulf Islands situated between Vancouver and Victoria. There are about 1100 full-time residents.
Our 2800sqft house was built in 2008 and features glass, wood, granite and slate throughout. A unique feature is the bridge over the living and dining area to a spectacular covered upper deck space with breathtaking views of Active Pass and neighbouring islands.
The property affords our guests complete seclusion and privacy nestled in acres of local cedars and firs with unlimited space for your relaxing vacation. It's the ideal place for couples, families, and gatherings of all kinds.
The property has west-facing ocean views of Active Pass and the mountains of Vancouver Island beyond. The vast, expansive surroundings make for a wildlife/bird-watcher's paradise! This property and home have been described by guests as 'Bliss!'.
The home's main floor master bedroom features a solid mahogany canopy bed, with private access to the main deck. The king-sized bedroom on the lower floor featues a gorgeous Virginian antique solid wrought iron bed. All four bedrooms are very tastefully decorated and furnished in a west-coast style with forest and ocean views.
A picturesque swimming beach is a short bike ride or walk away. Visitors have loved exploring the numerous bays and sandstone caves while their children collect sea shells and play in the sand. Two grocery stores, a wonderful bakery, pub and several restaurants on the island all add to the convenience of the island.
Cable TV, Wireless Internet, a fully functioning pub-style wet bar, games room, and piano are all here for you and your family to enjoy!
You can get to Mayne Island (Village Bay) by taking a BC Ferry from Victoria (Swartz Bay) or Vancouver (Tsawwassen). See BC Ferries website for schedules for the Southern Gulf Islands.
Click on the calendar for up-to-date availability. All four bedrooms have real beds with quality mattresses (1 King and 3 Queens). For larger groups after the beds are full guests usually bring their own camping mattresses and sleeping bags.
