About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8+)

As of October 2018 this property will be rented on a monthly basis only. For the past 10 years people have enjoyed coming to the house to gather as groups and families (not to mention guests have injected hundreds of thousands of dollars into the local economy)

Now, the local Island Trust is moving to shut down short-term vacation rentals. Feel free to email them your thoughts on their short-sighted approach to this issue.

If you love privacy, afternoon sun, sunsets, stars at night in a forest setting, ocean views, mountains, big sky, eagles, and deer, then this is the place for you.

Mayne Island is the most historical of the Gulf Islands situated between Vancouver and Victoria. There are about 1100 full-time residents.

Our 2800sqft house was built in 2008 and features glass, wood, granite and slate throughout. A unique feature is the bridge over the living and dining area to a spectacular covered upper deck space with breathtaking views of Active Pass and neighbouring islands.

The property affords our guests complete seclusion and privacy nestled in acres of local cedars and firs with unlimited space for your relaxing vacation. It's the ideal place for couples, families, and gatherings of all kinds.

The property has west-facing ocean views of Active Pass and the mountains of Vancouver Island beyond. The vast, expansive surroundings make for a wildlife/bird-watcher's paradise! This property and home have been described by guests as 'Bliss!'.

The home's main floor master bedroom features a solid mahogany canopy bed, with private access to the main deck. The king-sized bedroom on the lower floor featues a gorgeous Virginian antique solid wrought iron bed. All four bedrooms are very tastefully decorated and furnished in a west-coast style with forest and ocean views.

A picturesque swimming beach is a short bike ride or walk away. Visitors have loved exploring the numerous bays and sandstone caves while their children collect sea shells and play in the sand. Two grocery stores, a wonderful bakery, pub and several restaurants on the island all add to the convenience of the island.

Cable TV, Wireless Internet, a fully functioning pub-style wet bar, games room, and piano are all here for you and your family to enjoy!

You can get to Mayne Island (Village Bay) by taking a BC Ferry from Victoria (Swartz Bay) or Vancouver (Tsawwassen). See BC Ferries website for schedules for the Southern Gulf Islands.

Click on the calendar for up-to-date availability. All four bedrooms have real beds with quality mattresses (1 King and 3 Queens). For larger groups after the beds are full guests usually bring their own camping mattresses and sleeping bags.

Many guests have commented that the house has exceeded their expectations.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is magical and fostered great times filled with all the love. We had the best bbq during sunset on the patio - GLORIOUS. This place is all good vibes and nature.

Mount Parke hike with the group was awesome. Saw two eagles at the lookout.

Thank you Mayne House!

It really was a very enjoyable and fun weekend. The house was everything and more than we could have hoped for. Lots of amenities, good instructions, comfortable beds, nice cozy wood stove (it was a very wet weekend).

Again, it was a great weekend and it is a very warm and welcoming place to stay.

Thank you

Amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect size for our family. The house is beautiful and well appointed. We all slept well in the comfortable beds. Every morning we sat on the large deck watching the deer have breakfast. The pool table was awesome at bringing everyone together as well. Nothing negative to say, wonderful house in a wonderful setting.

Beautiful spot on Mayne Island!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property has everything you need for your stay on Mayne island. it is very very spacious and though we only had 4 of us on this trip it is obvious that the 8-10 that it sleeps would be very comfortable here. The property boasts amazing views from the decks and numerous activities to partake in throughout the property. It is fully stocked with games, movies and adapters for your favorite music and when you are ready for the water there are items for water sports. You are very close to everything, including minutes from a beach and rope swing as well only a few minutes to the ferry docks. Great place to chill out and relax and forget about everything else for a few days.

Bring your road bike to this island for the riding is spectacular and will having you bust a gut on some of the hills not to mention your overall elevation gain while riding around the island. You will leave here a stronger cyclist. Also, lots of places to do a bit of walking and hiking and even easy to just run on the road since very few vehicles. Beautiful property and beautiful island!

Spacious and luxurious residence!

  • 5 of 5

We (4 adults, 2 kids) had a fantastic week on Mayne Island. The house was spacious and well-stocked. We enjoyed the decks, huge kitchen, and settling down to an evening movie. Would highly recommend!

Beautiful layout very well stocked, perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

On a tranquil island with peaceful bays and quiet roads, an escape from hectic city life, the property is incredibly private and has room for large familes, we appreciated how easy it was to check in and check out, the host was accommodating and a pleasure to interact with. Our bed was so comfortable and the decks were perfect for lounging on. Highly recommend this property
