Property description

PARADISE! That's the first thing that entered our minds when we came to Galiano Island. Close to major cities, but yet you feel a million miles away. Many unspoiled, natural and wild beaches, friendly people and west coast wilderness all around.

Our house is nestled in a fir and arbutus forest, with lots of sunlight, fantastic ocean, mountain and sunset views, and a very cozy and comfortable house to relax in. There is not a single house to be seen from our Galiano Getaway Cottage so you can find the peace and quiet you have been looking for.

Children are welcome in our house as our house is child friendly. There's lots to do on the island; swim, bike, explore or shop... or you can relax on the deck and read your book!! If you are trying to get away from the 'Madding Crowd', give our house on Galiano Island a visit!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: Jim and I fell in love with Galiano in 1988 and were fortunate to be able to buy our house there. We have spent a lot of time fixing it up for ourselves and for others to use.

Why the Owner Chose Southern Gulf Islands, BC, Canada:
We have had so many wonderful times on Galiano Island. We exchanged our wedding vows with our family and friends around us in Bluff Park overlooking Active Pass, on Galiano in 1989. Since then we have spent time every summer with our two daughters exploring the island and spending time together. When we escape to Galiano from Vancouver for a few days, we always feel rejuvenated and energized when we return to our busy city lives. In the spring and fall we try to get over to the island with our friends- long weekends with other families, Jim with his poker friends and Amanda with her women friends. The house is fabulous for just getting away and being together.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our favorite things to do on the island are walking in to Pebble Beach, jumping off the dock at the government dock at the north end, walking around the trail at Montague Park, going for ice cream at the marina and scoops, shopping at Ixchel craft shop, watching movies Saturday afternoon at the Gulf Islands film school, swimming at Morning beach or Cable Bay, playing monopoly and reading books out on our deck and best of all, having a relaxing dinner out on our deck as the sun goes down.
