* Please note that VRBO insists on showing the rates for our Canadian cottage in USD. There is a small tab on the rates page where you can change to CAD.

* We require a 2 night minimum stay during the off season, 3 night minimum for long weekends, and one week during July and August.

Our heritage cottage, 6 Lily Lane, has been renovated to modern standards. Settled on a private one-acre point with morning sunrises to start your day and evening sunsets that will take your breath away. The cottage point overlooks low bank tidal pools that you can explore all day on one side, and a private sand pebble beach for swimming and building sand castles on the other side. We are two cottages away from East Point Park, where the orcas travel on a regular basis. Settle yourself on the sandstone rocks and wait for their arrival. You will be so close 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 your 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, towels, full kitchen, firewood and an outdoor propane barbeque. The cottage has a queen bed in the master, twins in the second bedroom and a pullout couch in the living room, all with feather duvets.

The road to our retreat is well paved and great for biking. Our driveway is a private packed dirt lane.

Bring your boat, kayak, sailboat, or canoe and launch it at our private boat ramp.

If you are using your GPS to find us, please use the address 723 Tumbo Channel Road, Saturna Island.

We have guests who have been returning every summer for over 20 years. The summer weeks are offered to returning guests first, but we do keep a wait list.

Comfy, cozy and perfectly located too!

  • 5 of 5

6 Lily Lane was a perfect place for my husband and I to take a few days off from our hectic life. What a perfect spot! The cottage is very private, surrounded by forest and facing the ocean. It was clean, cozy and warm and the little kitchen was well-equipped to prepare some nice meals at ‘home’. We especially appreciated the comfy bed with fluffy duvet and pillows, lovely. We enjoy exploring and hiking and Saturna did not disappoint. We did the hike to Boat Pass at Winter Cove, the hike at Narvaez Bay to Little Bay, Echo Bay and Monarch Head, the Brown Ridge trail on Mt. Warburton Pike, and the Lyall Creek trail to a lovely waterfall. Note that we are in our sixties, and I was a little nervous on the Brown Ridge trail. You are up very high, the path (a goat trail) is very narrow and you’re walking downhill on the edge of a very steep slope. The view is spectacular from up there though, and we got some great snaps of the goats. It was the highlight of our trip and if I can do it, so can you. The place we loved the most though was just steps away, East Point. The place is magical, absolutely beautiful, and we visited every day! We were hoping to spot the orcas, as apparently there have been recent sightings, but no luck. Lots of other wildlife though - sea birds, eagles, seals, sea lions, otters, and lots of beautiful deer (drive slowly, they're everywhere)! We had two great meals at the Saturna Lighthouse Pub at sunset and we enjoyed a yummy breakfast wrap at the Wild Thyme Coffee House (a funky old double decker bus converted into a restaurant) while waiting for the ferry on our last day. The islanders are really friendly, and we felt very welcome on Saturna. Most of all though, I cannot say enough about our wonderful hostess, Jo Holland. She is a lovely lady, and it was very enjoyable chatting with her by email. She looks after you, and genuinely wants to make sure you have a wonderful stay – which we did! We will recommend this rental to our friends and family, and would definitely return.

Exceptional location, and a cute, cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

6 Lily Lane is perfectly located on the sheltered low bank Saturna waterfront, overlooking Tumbo Island, and a short walk from East Point Park. The cottage itself has plenty of privacy, sheltered by trees. A nice fireplace, with lots of supplied wood, for cozy evenings after a day out exploring the natural pleasures of a great island.

Our host Jo was really helpful and friendly. And she's thought of everything you might need for a relaxing stay.

All round, a great experience.

Breathtaking Ocean View.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage and location with a breathtaking view of the ocean. I have vacationed here multiple times and the Orcas have come right up to the private beach. My stay is always peaceful, relaxing and fun, making it very hard to leave.

Time to Breathe

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this property allows you time to step away from the everyday rush, to take in your surroundings, the trees, the water, the rocks, the wildlife. The cottage is clean, cozy and comfortable. The view from the deck, second to none. Any questions regarding the property were promptly answered. We would highly recommend a stay there.

Perfect cozy cottage oceanfront

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need in one place. The owners take extraordinarily care of every detail. You feel like they are family. The view is outstanding we spent countless hours in the window seat starring into the channel. Tons of wildlife, seals, deer, bald eagles, whales and the most beautiful sunsets & sunrises.

Saturna Island is the Southernmost of the Gulf Islands. Its small population and remote location make it ideal for vacationers looking for a real get-away from the daily grind.

Much of Saturna falls within the Parks Canada Gulf Islands National Park Reserve and provides hiking, whale watching, biking and other opportunities to re-connect with the spectacular nature of the Gulf Islands.
