ask for details.

You might like to know.................

We start our base rate at double occupancy because 60% of our guests are couples. We want couples to pay a fair nightly rate for their stay. We then add for additional guests to compensate for the additional amenity, water, power, and cleaning required.

You might like to know..............

Our additional guest rate includes adults and children. With the exception of infants that are not yet walking, we do charge for all guests including children. Unlike hotel rooms we have many nooks and crannies, glass, and objects that require deep cleaning like a real home. Our house keepers do an excellent job of cleaning after each turnover and this all takes additional time with additional guests. Plus all guests use bedding, water, towels, and other amenities.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Jan Stevens was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. She studied art and Interior Design at the University of Washington. In 1982 she moved to Henderson, Nevada where she designed one-of-a-kind interiors for hundreds of clients. Over 13 years ago, when her son was an infant, she established Jan Stevens Design and began her successful design business while working out of her house and being “Mom” at the same time. Jan has designed stylish, comfortable and gorgeous interiors for over 30 years. Jan’s creativity and organizational skills has lead her to other entrepreneurial endeavors such as fundraising, graphic design, writing, and photography, as well as managing the Lazy Bowen Hideaway as a vacation rental. Over the last 10 years, following her passion for Bowen’s natural beauty, Jan began photographing the island sunsets, landscapes, and flora. Starting as a hobby the photographs were given as gifts to friends and neighbors as calendars and note cards. With the encouragement of a good friend, Jan has just recently signed, framed and displayed some of her best work at the Lazy Bowen Hideaway. All of Jan’s Bowen Island photography is available for sale. With all of Jan’s relatives being Canadian and living in the Vancouver area Jan’s frequent visits to her Bowen Island home makes staying in touch with family easy. The goal in the near future is to spend equal time between the sunny Southwest and the temperate rain forest of Bowen Island. This would be the best of both worlds. UPDATE AS OF FEBRUARY 2013 ~ I am proud to say that I am now a dual citizen, US and Canadian, retroactive back to my date of birth in 1955.

Why the Owner Chose Bowen Island, BC, Canada:
Our Bowen Island cabin has been in the Stevens family since 1954. When our Aunt passed we became the 2nd generation to own and care for this beautiful waterfront property. We have over 50 years of irreplaceable childhood memories of family time at the cabin: playing cards, board games, and swimming all day and night. It only makes sense to share this special property with other families that will appreciate the many special qualities of Bowen Island: slow pace, safe environment, and spectacular waterfront setting among a few. We are thrilled to be creating new family memories for our son and hope the Lazy Bowen Hideaway can be a part of your family history too.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love the comfort of our home while we sit and enjoy the view from all angles of the property. Nature surrounds us and changes with the seasons from vivid yellow Laburnum and forsythia to the rich evergreen of the fir and cedar trees. While we enjoy cruise ships and ferries sailing by as we view them through the ancient and protected Arbutus trees on the property. but my favorite is catching the Island Deer grazing on the berries and salal below the deck.
