Property description

Come stay at our charming cottage, your Galiano home away from home . We have plenty of space for large groups both inside and out. Relax on our large sunny deck, or swing in the shady hammock.

Enjoy cooking a special meal/ BBQ with family and/or friends. Later saunter down to the sandstone beach and enjoy Galiano's beautiful sunsets. In the evening our deck welcomes you to dance, enjoy a glass of wine, or simply stargaze.

Cozy and delightful in any season, our cottage has 3 separate bedrooms plus a romantic pull-out sofa in the livingroom opposite the fireplace. The master bedroom features its own private balcony. Kids will love their cozy upstairs bedroom with dragonfly lights and a toyshelf waiting to be explored. The ground floor bedroom features a double bed and its own private porch. There is a playpen available for babies, and a fold out cot suitable to set up in any room.

Outdoor games include a trampoline, a pingpong table, croquet, badminton and a backyard forest with a creek to play in.

Indoors there are board games, DVDs, toys and crafts to keep everyone amused during the occasional rainy day.

Keywords: Full house on a sunny garden lot, walk miles of sandstone beach with sunset views, only 7 minutes drive from ferry

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I teach nursing at Douglas College in Coquitlam, BC. I love the outdoors and spending time with my family and pets.

Why the Owner Chose Southern Gulf Islands, BC, Canada:
I have always loved the Gulf Islands and dreamed of owning a cottage there. Galiano is the perfect Island as it is the first stop on the ferry from Tswassen- only a 50 minute ride! We are just 5 minutes from the ferry, the bakery and a famous historical pub. There are many gorgeous island parks to be explored by bike or on foot.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Enjoy the privacy of the gulf Islands while remaining close to convenient sevices. Our property abuts park land with a wooded pathway to beach. There are several provincial parks on the Island and beaches which feature unique sandstone formations known as tifoni - amazing photographic opportunities. Wildlife viewing everday.
