Galiano Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is as good a rental as you could possibly hope for....very clean throughout, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, amazing waterfront location and within walking distance of the ferry and restaurants and shop. The pictures of the property are exactly what you get!

Andrea was very, very flexible with some date problems I had and couldn't have been more helpful to us. Note that if you don't need to explore the island, it is easily doable to come as a walk on passenger because you are literally 5 minutes walk from the terminal!

I highly recommend a stay here - the peace at night is breathtaking!

Great location and secluded enough to enjoy the island

  • 5 of 5

Property matched if not exceeded the description - very clean and well maintained,

Owners more than helpful when contacted by international clients asking basic questions - nothing was to much trouble.

Would totally recommend this property to other friends and family but it could be quite cramped for 6 people if all adults.

Masses to do locally with walking, wildlife, sailing and canoeing - ideally placed very close to the local amenities at the south end near the ferry - I would love to come again!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a peaceful place to enjoy a relaxing week! Totally restful and rejuvenating. We enjoyed exploring the beaches during the day and viewing various wildlife. In the evenings time for bbqs on the deck facing the ocean and stargazing. Also if you have a hankering for some pizza check out Babes in the Woods, a local restaurant. The cottage is a short walk from some local shopping and offers everything from homemade soaps to unique clothing. We would definitely come back again and consider the cottage as a welcoming home base!

Relaxing Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my Fiance, her two friends and one of their 2 year old sons spent the weekend at Kingfisher's Perch for a birthday celebration. We decided to bike over for the weekend and were very grateful for the close proximity to the ferries and all necessary amenities! The location was fantastic and easy to find. We quickly discovered the wonderful deck and enjoyed our first evening watching the local herons and racoons feast in the intertidal zone. The home is well laid out and easily was able to accommodate our group. The beds were very comfortable and we loved having an actual fireplace for when the temperature dropped at night! Our only issue was a bit of confusion surrounding what to do with our garbage and recycling as there were a few differing instructions. My advice is to stick to the Rental Agreement and then there's no confusion. All in all, it was a wonderful, relaxing weekend and we would definitely recommend Kingfisher's Perch to anyone looking to get away to the amazing island of Galiano!

My stay at the Kingfishers Perch

  • 4 of 5

I just came home from a fantastic girls weekend on Galiano. I found the description accurate regarding location, etc. The cottage was very clean and well maintained. There were lots of chairs on the beautiful sundeck, the beds/bedding were very comfortable and the kitchen was very well equipped with decent cookware. I have already recommended this property to others. Although we cooked most of our meals there, we did eat at the Hummingbird Pub and the restaurant in Montague Harbor. Both were very good. We kayaked, hiked and golfed. All in all it was a fantastic weekend which we were lucky enough to have sunshine the whole time.

Perfect for a Girl's Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to let you know that we had a lovely time in your cottage. What a perfect place for a retreat! We did a hike up along Bodega Ridge, followed by a relaxing afternoon at the Hummingbird Pub. We checked out Babes in the Woods for some amazing pizza, and tried to get into Pilgrimme (should have made a reservation weeks before!). Above all, we spent some quality time on your deck, just catching up and watching the seals watching us.

Thank you for sharing your home.
