Photos and Description of the Galiano Island vacation cabin rental

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths View Home On Acreage

Enjoy Galiano's holiday season... Relax and enjoy spectacular views over Trincomali Channel, Walker's Hook and Vancouver Island mountains from our south-west facing custom cedar built cottage. The palliated woodpeckers, bald eagles and deer will charm you as you enjoy your morning java in the 'snug' ...the morning coffee klatch or lie in bed while watching the sailboats beating to windward from the master bedroom's picture window.

During July and August the tall ships out of Victoria cruise down the channel - you may even spot the mizzen-top-gallant-stay-sail being hoisted. The night sky, unencumbered by city lights, twinkles above the open deck and shooting stars fall gracefully. The privacy of the cottage allows you to fully enjoy the majestic 400 year old Douglas Fir trees in the back of the property.

The tastefully decorated and equipped 2-story home includes all the basics to make your stay comfortable and fun. The heritage (tuned) upright piano, guitar(s) and percussion instruments have resulted in many a musical evening. The indoor swing, magic kid's loft and outdoor trampoline and vaulting horse ensure the kids are having as much fun as you. The large gas barbecue on the deck can be put into service while you enjoy drinks and your meal while the sunset puts you in a perfect space.

The Master bedroom with a full en-suite bathroom has a very comfortable Queen size bed, and the second downstairs bedroom also comes with a queen. On the main floor are 2 more bedrooms (1 queen, 1 double), a full bathroom with tub, full laundry facilities, living room, snug, dining area and large equipped kitchen opening out onto the southwest facing deck.

The half mile lane-way ensures privacy, beauty and nature. Ganner Beach is a short hike or drive and the mid-island location means you are not too far from any of Galiano's stunning beaches and hikes, nor the stores, ferries or golf course. A nature lover's hike starts just out the back door and takes you high up on Galiano's famous ridge.

The property is just 10 minutes from the stores, restaurants and Hummingbird Inn and 15 from the ferries. The large lawn can be set up for games such as croquet and volleyball.
