Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Situated in spectacular Whaler Bay a quick 5 minute walk from the Sturdies Bay Ferry Terminal and all amenities - A calm serene bay with stunning views down the bay and beyond, perfect for swimming, paddle boarding and launching your kayaks or canoes. View our resident kingfisher perched on his pole, otters playfully frolicking stirring the glass-like water, watch for 'Sammy' the seal who comes round in the evening to check things out and watch the herons skillfully fish for their dinner. Galiano is also the perfect spot to see the many pods of whales that travel through our waters in the summer time.

We are available for rent year–round. So cozy–up to the wood burning fire and enjoy a good book in the winter or sit out on the deck with a refreshment on those hot summer days.

Recently redecorated bright open–space living & dining area with a cozy fireplace. Fully furnished 2 bedroom cottage, 1 queen and 2 double beds, and 1 full bath. Our fully supplied kitchen comes stored with dishes, cookware and appliances so you don't need to worry. The fireplace is a cozy accessory for those crisp winter days and fall evenings. The large 300 sq. ft. deck is the perfect place to relax on the deck chairs and enjoy the beautiful sunsets and views of spectacular Whaler Bay. There's also a propane barbecue so you can grill up your summer faves.

Enjoy the bounty of Provincial Parks, spectacular views, and wildlife every where you go and breathe that fresh island air. The natural beauty of Galiano Island invites relaxation, exploration and excitement.

Indulge in a bottle of wine and perhaps head down to Montague Harbour and pick up a fresh catch of local seafood the island has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our last morning here, our group of gals who decided to treat ourselves to a much needed break from reality. And what a break it has been. From the moment we walked into your beautiful home we knew we had found the retreat we were looking for.

From the beautiful view, the sunsets, and the stars at night. Amazing sleeps and comfort, nothing has been overlooked.

Thank you for giving us our home away from home. We leave today, refreshed, renewed, a group of mothers with 314 years of life experience between us. And these last 3 days are times we experienced together, and will never forget.

Well maintained, great view, fantastic get away!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home is nice and close to Scoops (great burgers and icecream) as well as the coffee shop! These quickly became 2 favourite places to go. The information in the basket on the buffet table was so helpful! We went to some of the parks and really enjoyed the views and beaches! The Montague Park was lovely --shaded walks and beautiful beaches.

We had a lot of fun going through the old VCR tapes and DVDs... lots of great old films there!

All in all it was a lovely week! Lots of fresh air and sun shine and a wonderful place to retreat at night. Just loved it!

Perfect for our family.

  • 5 of 5

We all loved it..it took a day to slow right down. I loved no cable and wifi..we all did even my husband. It’s well appointed; the kitchen has everything you need..rarely see coffee grinders and good blenders. Very clean. Very handy to the ferry. Can’t wait to come back.

Another great stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth year in a row staying at this lovely cottage. We had a great time and everything we needed was readily available. Nothing can beat a warm evening relaxing on the deck. The proximity to the ice cream shop was also greatly appreciated by the kids! We will be back again next summer.
