About Gretchen Peters

We are 40 year residents on Quadra Island.

Gretchen Peters purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Gretchen Peters chose Vancouver Island

We never tire of our spectacular, panoramic view. We bought the adjoining property and built this cabin as a getaway for 2 so that others might enjoy it too.

What makes this cabin unique

This private cabin sits on it's own 1-acre lot within walking distance of grocery store, pub, restaurant, wharf, and bike and kayak rental. Our guests love the privacy, peacefulness, the big view and especially the soaker tub in any weather.

While we live only a short ferry ride away Quadra Island continues to be one of our favourite getaways. We have stayed at numerous other properties and always been quite happy and the island is a delight with interesting walks, hikes, bikes and saltwater-based pursuits. Upon arrival the panoramic view of Rebecca Spit and the coastal mountains is simply spectacular and summer guests are treated to a changing view of the yachts that use Drew Harbour for anchorage. The cottage is quality throughout with personal touches tucked away like books and boardgames, extra bedding and blankets and enough kitchen tools to prepare most anything one desires. Truly private, the landscaping ensures that the only visitors you may notice are robins and the deer that forage the quiet rural neighbourhood. From our booking through our departure the owners were highly responsive, professional and extremely pleasant to deal with. We most certainly will be back!

Peaceful paradise

  • 5 of 5

This place is a gem. When you arrive you are immediately hit wih the beauty and serenity of Luna vista. The views are spectacular, the place is immaculate, clean and just the right blend of open and cosyness. It was the perfect location for exploring the island with all the amenities close by. Gretchen was lovely and made us feel welcome. The best was the beautiful soaker tub overlooking the ocean and coastal mountains. Perfect for sipping your favorite beverage. We feel like we visited a piece of paradise and will definitely be coming back again!

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent an incredible week at Luna Vista's one-bedroom cabin. The cabin itself is cozy and well-appointed, but the real beauty of this place is the porch/deck. The east-facing view from the deck looks out over water, Rebecca spit, more water, and then layer upon layer of mountain range, stretching into mist.

We looked at that view in the morning, sitting and sipping coffee. We looked at that view in the afternoon, opening a bottle of wine. And we looked at that view in the evening, from the incredible two-person soaker tub. We were fortunate to have fine weather all week, but even in poor weather, Luna Vista would be an alluring destination.

Gretchen and Doug were very friendly, giving us a nice greeting and then giving us plenty of privacy thereafter.

As a base camp for exploring the beaches and trails of Quadra Island, Luna Vista is fantastic. We had a terrific experience here and would recommend this spot without reservation.

Great get-away cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Luna Vista, we were so impressed on our first visit that when we wanted to visit Quadra again, this was our first choice. We were not disappointed! The views are spectacular and constantly changing with the light and weather. The cabin is immaculate, well equipped and cozy. Doug & Gretchen are excellent hosts, friendly, helpful and welcoming. The cabin is located with easy access to Drew Harbor and Rebecca Spit and is only minutes away from amenities in Heriot Bay. Truly a home away from home!
