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.

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.

Great island getaway

This was the second year in a row that we had stayed at the cottage and it didn't disappoint once again. Great location, close to Sturdies Bay, very relaxing and would definitely cone back again.

Cute cottage with a magnificent view.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was really sweet. Older, but tastefully updated with decor and paint. The deck and view is to die for. Great way to begin and end each day.

A cozy hideaway

  • 4 of 5

We had three wonderful days on Galiano Island exploring all the coves, inlets and trails. It's a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The cottage is tucked into a quite cove were the kingfisher, seal and great blue heron visit daily along with a nesting chickadee right off the deck.

The accommodations are well appointed and have a very homey feeling especially with the fireplace blazing on the cooler nights. We didn't do much cooking but there is a good array of dishes, utensils, pots and pans. A new teapot would be a nice addition.

We had a wonderful fresh halibut and crisp salad dinner at the Hummingbird Pub and the best pizza ever at Babes in the Woods.

We did not miss cable tv or wifi and Andrea and Dave have provided a myriad of VHS and video tapes for those who wish to partake. The cd player was an added bonus that we really enjoyed.

The large deck is perfect for doing Tai Chi, yoga or meditating in this most calming, peaceful setting.

The cottage and Galiano get high makes as a place to 'getaway' for relaxation, breathing fresh air, turning down the volume on busy lives.

Winter stay in the beautiful Gulf Islands

  • 4 of 5

Andrea, your property was very satisfactory. A few absolutely minor details may have been better but overall we were very comfortable and happy with our stay. We were blessed with wonderful late winter weather for our first two days and a snowy blizzard on our final day. A trip to the beach in the snow should be on everyone's list. We are considering a summer return.
