Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: I like to host. It's in my blood. My mother like to tell the story of how she was born between dinner and dessert while her parents ran a hotel. That said, I have worn many hats, from teaching pottery and touring with a psychedelic folk band, to working at a major securities firm; from raising 4 boys as a single parent to flipping burgers. That's what you get with a degree in philosophy;)

Why the Owner Chose Bowen Island, BC, Canada:
Close (500m) to the best west-side beach, on the bus route, private, an engaging or invisible host (your choice) chill island vibe with an outside fire-pit patio and bird song. Also able to cater for events of up to 40 people. Friendly neighbourhood. Boating and catering options. Long time island resident who can point you in the right direction to hidden gems. Level access and parking.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Heritage home barged from West Vancouver. There is lots of loving energy in these walls.
