About the Property

Located on the West Side of Indian Point. The best sunsets on the island!

For the Eco-minded. Do you want to really get away from it all - on a secluded self-sustained island? Hard to get! Great big semi-waterfront cedar cabin at Indian Point, one of the most desirable location on beautiful Savary Island. 2 minutes from a beautiful white sandy beach. Off-the-grid, rustic but spacious and self-sufficient (with own electrical system) with everything you need for cooking. Interior shower (1 full bath + ensuite 1/2 bath). Woodstove, big fridge and stove. Ideal location, very quiet, less traffic, flat and shallow water. Sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms with queen size beds.. $1500/week July and August, or $800/week in June and September.

Artbutus is a 1375 sq.ft 3 Bedroom cedar cabin that includes a very large master bedroom, 1 bathroom with hot shower + 1 ensuite in one of the smaller rooms.

Complete Power System (generator, batteries and invertor), and of course, running hot water.

Everything you need for cooking is already there. 18 c.f. fridge and stove. Just bring linens. We have lots of blankets.

Additional information about rental rates


  • Refundable Damage Deposit $149.94
  • Taxes Not included


Cancellation Policy Strict: 50% up to 7 days prior to checking except VRBO booking fees. Cancellation fee may be superseded by extenuating circumstances if we are able to fill the booking. This is an older, rustic cabin near the beach. The owner doesn't live on the property, although help is available if there is a problem. You will have to pump up the water every day (with a Honda gas pump - easy to do) for 10 -60 mn to keep the big tank full, by courtesy to the next renters, and so you don't have to fill an empty tank (would take longer). You must be able to handle; You also must be able to start a small Honda generator (also easy to do). Solar system is next on the list, but you will have to start the generator every day and let it run for 2 hours, when you are most likely to use power (and that's when you use the blender or power hungry small appliances) to charge the batteries. Then you have power all day. The $200 damage deposit will be refunded when cabin left tidy.

Owner's cancellation policy:

100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.

Ambulance available in the summer time. My neighbour rents kayaks and paddle boards and he is very reasonable. I have 4 adult and 2 young kids bikes at the cabin, and a game of crocket you can play on the beach.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I share my time between Vancouver, Mexico, and Savary Island. I grew up outside of Quebec city, near the Main border.

Why the Owner Chose Powell River, BC, Canada:
I fell in love with the island when I went there by accident 10 years before I bought. I promised myself I'd have a home there one day. I loved the cedar feeling of the cabin - everything smells good, and the view is delightful.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
It's only 3 minutes walking from the beach. You get to see the sunset from the Living Room or kitchen. It's quiet, there is much less traffic at the Point.
