About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms 1 1/2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Located on Active Pass, the spectacular marine passage separating Galiano and Mayne islands, InTheBluff - Galiano’s Oceanside Log House offers one of the most stunning outlooks in the Southern Gulf Islands. The area is known for its strong currents, often turbulent waters and array of wildlife - look out to eagles soaring, seals, sea lions and otters frolicking in the swirling currents and orca whales in their natural element. Even humpback whales pass by on occasion. Breathe the island air.

InTheBluff is a very unique and wonderful escape, an artisan log home atop an oceanfront cliff and amongst over 15 private acres characterized by Garry oaks, Arbutus, Douglas fir and Cedar trees. The beautiful log home has all the modern amenities one could desire, including Wi/Fi & HD (antenna) TV. Two bedrooms (each with queen size beds) offer comfort and separation. The master is upstairs with a private balcony overlooking Active Pass. InTheBluff very comfortably accommodates up to four.

InTheBluff’s kitchen is well equipped, featuring a country stove and oven, microwave and dishwasher. Cuddle by the Tulikivi (soap stone) wood burning fireplace, lounge on the deck with a good book,

For the avid nature explorers, reaching the gorgeous ¼ mile long beach below is particularly convenient as the Matthews Point Beach Access trail is immediately adjacent. This is just the beginning though as the Matthews Pont Regional Park Reserve, essentially an extension of InTheBluff, connects directly with Bluffs Park with its array of trials and vistas. Mt. Galiano is also linked by an evolving island trail system - remember your water, good hiking shoes and camera!

InTheBluff is a non-smoking, no pet retreat. The vacation lot home is perfectly situated for some of the best hikes the Gulf Islands have to offer or for just sitting back, breathing the fresh island air and taking in the stunning views any time of the year.
