Best to hear it from someone who has stayed here:
"What a spectacular location! The location is just steps from the water and boasts a full wall of floor to ceiling windows that look out onto the porch and over the water. The cottage is well appointed and comfortable. There was plenty of room for our family of 4-more can be accommodated if necessary. The property is adjacent to a national park where you can find the original fog alarm house, which is now home to a visitor information/ interpretive centre. If you, like me, are a seeker of local information and history, you will find yourself taking the short walk up to the fog alarm building daily. If you have any interest at all in spending your days watching seals and otters frolic, exploring tide pools, hiking, crabbing, sighting orcas literally meters away, and basking in phenomenal sunsets on the back porch-You've found the right place! We had no trouble finding the property and the owners were either on hand or reachable by phone. Our every need was attended to promptly. Bear in mind, this is a small island with few full time residents. They have a well-stocked store and a couple of eateries. My only advice would be to stock up on some staples food-wise before you get on the ferry as there were a couple of times that the general was out of the odd thing. Having said that, it is fun to shop locally and plan your meals on the fly, depending on what looks good at the store that day. Of course, supporting the local economy is important too. There are a number of local artist and craftspeople that bear checking out. I got the most fabulous wrap at Weaving by Theresa-the perfect garment to cozy up in and watch the sunset with a big glass of wine. What a magical holiday!"
This updated 2 bedroom pan abode Cottage is as close to the water edge as you can get! The large living room looks over to Tumbo Island, with the light of Vancouver in the distance. A queen bed is in one bedroom, and twin bunks and a single in the second. There is a full bathroom and kitchen with an eating space that spotlights the sandy beach. A haven for whale watchers and nature enthusiasts. Low bank ocean front with two sandy beaches and tidal pools for hours of entertainment and great swimming. Next to East Point Park where orcas travel on a regular bases. You could reach out and touch one, but we advise you use your camera instead! Watch the sea lions, seals and dolphins frolic in the ocean as you relax on the front lawn. Be amazed by the bald eagles diving for their dinner, and be prepared to be startled by a deer nibbling the tree outside the bedroom window. Your stay also gives you access to 44 acres of private hiking trails for your dog to enjoy off leash walks. The cottage is fully equipped with linens and towels, full kitchen and outdoor shared fireplace. You do not need a 4 wheel drive to reach our retreat as the roads are well paved and great for biking. Bring your boat, kayak, or canoe and launch it at our private boat ramp.
