The Simple Comfort Cottage has a fantastic ocean view overlooking Malaspnia Strait and the mountains behind Powell River. Great for morning sunrise watching! It looks out onto a garden and the ocean. Watch the seals, sea lions, eagles, herons and occasionally a whale right from your yard!
The cottage has a parking space right out front, a BBQ, a mud room with washer and dryer, a large living room with TV, local Van Anda cable, pull-out futon couch and large windows. The eating room/sitting room looks out onto the garden and ocean. The bedroom has plenty of windows with privacy blinds, and a double-sized bed. The bathroom has a toilet, sink, as well as bath and shower, shampoo and conditioner. The kitchen is fully furnished with coffee-maker, stove and oven, fridge, microwave, all dishes, cutlery etc., as well as the basics: sugar, sea salt, spices, etc. Free Wi-Fi is available 2 minutes away in front of the Texada Arts & Cultural Centre, or at the Texada Inn Restaurant. This is a clean, and unpretentious place, much like the island!
The cottage is located 10 minutes from the Texada (Blubber Bay) ferry dock in the friendly community of Van Anda (1,200 people).
It's walking distance to nature trails, Erickson Beach swimming area, Turtle Lake , grocery store, post office, Credit Union, and hotel. Summer swimming in the Quarry is a major must-do with emerald green warm waters - a favorite among locals. The Texada Museum is a local treasure that tells of the island's history in mining, forestry, and marine travel. Get ready to wave at every single person you pass either on your walks or while driving!
