Beautiful sunsets,orcas, eagles, and a beautiful beach where one can explore inter-tidal life, sunbathe, swim, beach comb, launch your kayak or canoe or just relax and enjoy the view.

Our cottages are all found and are often described as small homes by city dwellers.

Views from the cottages include the Salish Sea, Mount Baker, the lights of the mainland. One can see the ferry traffic off in the distance and at night the lights of the 3 ski resorts on the North Shore sparkle in the distance.

Relax on one of the two decks with your favourite libation or take a short walk to the beach and sit on the deck above the sand and pebble beach. Watch the sun go down in a glorious blaze of beautiful colours of the rainbow. You will see otters, great blue herons, seals, and a host of sea life.

About The Owner

My family has lived on Saturna since 1944. I came to live on the island in 1970, taught and administered the local school for 20 years. My children were raised here and have returned to make their lives here after being educated and travelling abroad. They are now raising their children here. Four generations of the family on Saturna. Wow!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2000

Why The Owner chose Southern Gulf Islands

My husband and I chose to build two cottages on our 30 acre property to afford the opportunity for others to share in the unique beauty of the property.

What makes this cottage unique

Our 2 cottages are situated on the western end of the property, amid tall trees and above a bank which affords fantastic views. Above all, you have privacy in your cottage as you cannot see one cottage from another.

Each cottage has 2 well-appointed bedrooms, each master with a king-sized bed. The living areas are cozy and offer airtight stoves for warmth and ambience on a cool evening.

The kitchen/dining area is large with full sized appliances, all the comforts of home. Washers and dryers are situated in the small utility room.

A phone in each cottage allows you to access outside contact with the use of your client card.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family and I come up every summer to enjoy the tranquility and the beauty of Saturna.

We love to stay at the cabin. It is well equipped, has beautiful views and is close to the

beach. I highly recommend coming and staying at Sunset Beach.

I know you will love it

The pictures do not do it Justice!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures did not do it justice! Very clean, well stocked, and quality appliances. My favourite place was in front of the wood stove cuddling with the kids while it down poured outside.

My family and I rented the Arbutus cabin with the King and Queen bedrooms and the mattresses were SO comfortable!

The kids loved being close to the water and there is a cute little beach just 2 mins away from your door step. We also saw an Emu when we were headed to the beach.

The only thing that I thought was missing was a hot tub! Even though I am pregnant and couldn't participate I thought it would have been a nice addition. :)

Everything was spic and span when we arrived but we did have some eight legged company that gave my Mom a heart attack

Overall I will definitely rent this place again!

Classy, peaceful and mystifying home by the sea and mountains!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, super clean and well built home this is. We have to call it a home and not a cottage. Breathtaking views from every room! Very well furnished and beds and couches were extra comfortable. If we ever could buy a mountain/ocean home this would be the one. Thank you for a very peaceful stay on gorgeous Saturna Island!

Secluded, peaceful, quiet. Large rooms. Beautiful trees and view across the Strait of Georgia. Close to East Point Park and its views, Parks Canada programs, and sea life. (Saw orcas there!)

Quiet, quiet, quiet!

  • 5 of 5

Incredibly private, peaceful, quiet setting in this very comfortable cabin. Wood stove helped add ambience as well as warmth. Couches extremely comfortable for an afternoon of reading and the beds offered a great night's sleep. Warburton mountain provided the most outstanding views of the islands as far as one could see and the walks at East Point and Monarch head also yielded breathtaking views. The cabin was very well equipped, very clean, nicely arranged and everything on the island was easily accessible.

Cozy getaway

  • 5 of 5

This fully equipped 2 bedroom cabin is in a great location, beautifully kept and clean, and very good value. I highly recommend it. I was there in winter and it was still wonderful.

A Gem of a Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Another delightful summer vacation at Sunset Beach Cottages and that makes it 5 years in a row. We wish we could stay forever! Remember going to a really big beach when you were a kid and it was still untouched and you had it all to yourself and Nature was just everywhere and the whole experience was just total FUN? It still exists at this amazingly beautiful place. This "get-away-from-it-all" place is the Gem of the Gulf sitting in the middle of magic Saturna Island. Not to be missed!
