Property description

The perfect place to soothe the frazzled soul: much more than a cottage, this lovely, architect-designed waterfront home commands a spectacular view of the Strait of Georgia. It overlooks safe, sandy Morning Beach, Lion Islet and the mountains of the mainland. At night the lights of Vancouver glitter on the horizon. The very private mature garden blends seamlessly with the surrounding forest. Two decks, including one at the water's edge, and a sheltered patio overlooking an evergreen garden complete the picture. A magical landscaped stone staircase leads to the shore.

The house offers 2000 square feet of comfortable furnishings and original art work, in a blissful relaxed setting. The master bedroom with queen-size bed and ensuite bathroom has tree-filtered views into the bay, while the second bedroom with twin beds has a sliding door onto a secluded deck surrounded by forest and ocean views.

Curl up by the woodburning stove. While away your stay here watching the seasonal array of wildlife in the bay; otters, seals, sea lions, hummingbirds, eagles, kingfishers, and the occasional orca. Or for those days when you need more stimulation, explore the island and its surrounding waters by kayak, horseback, bike or scooter, all readily available to rent on this jewel of the southern Gulf Islands.
