About Bamfield

Bamfield is located at the northern end of the West Coast Trail on Vancouver Island and is renowned for its rugged West Coast beauty. East and West Bamfield are divided by an inlet, making it just a 5 minute boat ride to the west side to where we are located. Once you arrive on the eastside, you will need to take a 5 min water taxi ride across to the Westside. We will then pick you up and take you to the house. Everything on the Westside is accessible within a 20 min walk. There is a grocery store located on the boardwalk, which stretches along the inlet, ideal for an easy walk. There are more challenging walks and hikes in the forest as well.

West Bamfield has a walking culture and there is no need for a vehicle. However the owners live on site and are more than happy to give guests a ride if you have difficulties walking or are picking up groceries from the local shop. Just ask!

The Unique Benefits to this House: We can comfortably accommodate large groups of people. It is an ideal place for small or large families, fishing groups, small conference and weddings. We are 5 minutes from beautiful sandy Brady's Beach.

  • Dragonfly is located on the West Side of Bamfield which is boat access only. The water taxi is a passenger only boat and does not take cars. So you will have to park your vehicle on the eastside and pack your belongings onto the boat and we will pick you up on the west side in a vehicle and drive you to the house. We (the owners) live on site, so we assist you and help get you settled in. The tap water in Bamfield is drinkable (and very good) so there is no need to bring bottled water to drink.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I came to Bamfield in 2000 as a marine biology student at the Bamfield Marine Sciences Center. I was struck by the strong sense of community and the diversity of people that can live together in such a small town. My husband and fell in love with the community, the rugged wilderness and the beautiful sandy beaches. We were lucky enough to buy this home close to the Brady's Beach. It is a place dear to our hearts that gives us so much peace.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Dragonfly is located on the west side of Bamfield, which is boat access only. Most people who come to the westside of Bamfield spend their time at Brady's beach, a long sandy beach where the trees meet the ocean. The beach is great for swimming and boogie boarding and surfing when the weather is right. The nice thing about our property is that we are the closest rental property to the beach. So after a long day at the beach it is only a 5 minute walk back to the house with the tired and wet children. Our house and property has a great lay out for large groups, so that you can always find a peaceful spot to yourself to relax; whether it be in the spacious bright living room, or on the porch looking out to the ocean and the islands.
