Overview

Photos and Description of the Bowen Island vacation house rental

New Custom Waterfront 'Green' Home sleeps 2 - 6 w/ 3 bedrooms + a loft.

$401 USD = $475 CAD

The EASTMAN WATERFRONT RETREAT is a Custom Built Luxury Waterfront Home with Spectacular Mountain Views. We proudly display our Platinum Award, the Highest ‘Green Building’ Rating on Bowen.

THE EASTMAN WATERFRONT RETREAT ~ Our energy efficient home is perfect on a sunny summer day and just as ideal during a ferocious winter storm. Thanks to the comfort provided by radiant floor heating and state-of-the-art heat recovery ventilation system that provides a constant temperature and fresh air 24/7 throughout the year.

3 BEDROOMS ~ SLEEPS 6 GUESTS

The EASTMAN WATERFRONT RETREAT has 3 bedrooms and will sleep up to 6 guests:

1 KING bed, and 2 QUEEN beds.

All our bedding is professionally laundered and pressed with layers of plush pillows and fluffy duvets. The Retreat has the luxury details that you desire for your getaway.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PRICING CAUTION ~ VRBO & HomeAway have been displaying all Canadian properties in USD. This is very confusing for all our Canadian Guests. Sorry, this is a VRBO decision that we are fighting to change. Help us by contacting VRBO customer service.

Meanwhile, scroll down to rates and adjust the currency window from USD to CAD. If uncertain please contact Jan for an accurate quote in Canadian dollars.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

KING SIZE MASTER BEDROOM

The very spacious MASTER BEDROOM has an exceptionally comfortable Organic latex KING size bed. Lounge in the plush bed, fine linens, and fluffy pillows while enjoying the gorgeous waterfront view. The master bedroom has a LARGE MASTER BATH with a soaker tub and walk in shower. We supply LINENS, organic shampoo, conditioner, body wash and soap. Step just outside the washroom door to shower in our outdoor shower surrounded by gorgeous Bowen Island Fresh sea air. Rejuvenate yourself with our indoor sauna with light and sound therapy located in the master suite……..we call it a “retreat” for good reason.

2 QUEEN BEDROOMS

On the upper floor you will find 2 QUEEN BEDROOMS with new mattresses, quality cotton sheets, fluffy filled duvets, and scrumptious piles of pillows. Both rooms have waterfront view and seaside decks. They both share the 4 PIECE WASH ROOM on the upper floor. We supply organic shampoo, conditioner, and soaps for your ultimate convenience.

NOTE: Based on your guest list we will make up beds and supply towels as required. We will assume that couples will sleep together unless otherwise informed. Thank you for helping us control our water and power usage.

NEWLY BUILT PRIVATE WATER ACCESS STAIRS ~ stairs reaching to the water's edge...rent or bring your own kayak or paddle board that can be launched at high tide from our newly built stairs to the water's edge. Wear your 'rock shoes' for comfortable beach exploring.

Our property next door has a private swimming beach. Ask if we have guests in the cottage during your stay to see if it might be available to you as well. When the Cottage is unoccupied we can call it your Private Beach. In addition, the Mt. Gardner Beach is just a 5 minute walk from the house.

LIVING ROOM ~ Relax in our LIGHT FILLED living room with 2 story high windows overlooking the majestic scenery and spectacular seaside views. Watch a movie on our large flat screen TV with surround-sound while nestled on the sectional under a cozy throw.

WOOD BURNING FIREPLACE ~ October through April enjoy the warmth of our energy-efficient wood burning fireplace. In this home, experience the wonders of nature while maintaining a high level of indulgence and eco-friendly living.

KITCHEN~ The kitchen has the modern conveniences one expects from a newly built home: drawer dishwashers, stainless refrigerator, electric stove and oven, microwave, and coffee pot. We provide basic spices, olive oil, and a bit of sugar and flour. All you need is to bring your fresh proteins and vegetables. There is no need for bottled water as our drinking water is the BEST!! It is alkaline and comes from our well... Drink up, it is good for you! Prepare your meals while enjoying the waterfront views.

PARTIES BEYOND 6 GUESTS ARE NOT ALLOWED. The Eastman Waterfront Retreat is a QUIET FAMILY, COUPLE, and FRIEND Getaway. Do not book our home if you are planning a party. (more details below)

DINING TABLE FOR 6 ~ Enjoy your in home prepared meal at our dining table with a view. For a more casual setting we also provide a dining nook for story telling while sipping your wine.

CATERING IS AVAILABLE ~ So you say you are on vacation and you don’t want to cook? Ask us about private catering services. The Vine and Garden or The Snug Cafe can prepare your meal or ALL your meals for you. We will put you in touch so you can take the night off.

POWDER ROOM ~ you will find a powder room on the main floor just off of the living room and kitchen.

WASHER AND DRYER ~ just off of the kitchen is a front loading washer and dryer.

OUTDOOR WRAP AROUND DECKS ~ Lounge and melt away into the outdoor seating and enjoy the frequent sight of eagles, seals, otters and deer while sipping wine, tea or coffee. The northwest facing decks are perfectly poised for magnificent sunset views……..what a perfect ending to a peaceful day at the Retreat.

PROPANE BBQ IS PROVIDED ~ Prepare your meals on our new Weber propane BBQ and dine seaside at our outdoor dining table.

WHEEL CHAIR ACCESSIBLE ~ Our home is wheelchair accessible. Although, the interior door ways are standard widths.

Bowen Island is only a 20-minute, beautiful ferry ride from West Vancouver, via the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal. Ferries run every hour. Water taxis from Horseshoe Bay or Granville Island in downtown Vancouver are also available.

You may also arrive on Bowen in your own boat and moor on the nearby Government Dock if moorage is available.....only a 5 minute walk from the house. Please call the Bowen Island Municipality to check for availability.

Bowen Island is a small, intimate community with highly rated restaurants, grocery stores, spas, gym, medical facilities, pharmacies, and hardware stores.

Bowen Island is a destination for the outdoor enthusiast. The Retreat is located on prime waterfront perfect for kayaking, paddle boarding, and swimming. We are surrounded by lush mountain trails for hiking, biking, or jogging. Fish from our home’s own dock, go sailing, or play golf on Bowen’s 9-hole course. Whistler’s world class ski resort is only 75 minutes from Horseshoe Bay and Cypress Mountain is less than ½ hour.

STRICT NO PARTY POLICY ~ PARTIES BEYOND 6 GUESTS ARE NOT ALLOWED. Eastman Waterfront Retreat is a QUIET FAMILY, COUPLE, and FRIEND Getaway. Do not book our home if you are planning a party. It will cost you your security deposit in full. This prestigious property is located in the very quiet Mt. Gardner neighbourhood on Bowen with strict noise bylaws. Excessive noise at any time is never tolerated by the neighbours nor the Municipality and a reason for immediate eviction with no refund of nightly rates or security deposit. Maximum occupancy is 6 guests and all guests must be named and listed on the rental agreement. Parties or gatherings of additional unapproved visitors for any length of time are not allowed at any time.
