Charming and Convenient Character House on the Edge of Ganges

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Relax at historic and charming Drake house, built in 1906 to overlook Ganges by early village pioneers.

Enjoy a fantastic setting among old growth cedars, firs and big-leaf maples, including harbour views from the wraparound deck and a five minute to the Saturday market, restaurants, pubs, galleries, shops and the harbour.

A car-less vacation is possible as the village is accessible by walking and the rest of the island may be accessed by public transport, cycling or moped. Car, moped, bicycle and kayak rentals are available within walking distance.

Wake up to a sunrise view over the village and harbour from a comfy King sized bed adorned with hotel quality linens and feather duvets. French doors open to the large patio outfitted with lounge chairs and a chiminea.

Two additional bedrooms are equipped with a double bed and two twins.

A spacious, fully equipped kitchen includes an expresso maker, juice maker and soda machine. Make a cappuccino from island roasted coffee beans, juice from local fruit and veggies, and self cater your breakfast with fresh croissants and eggs. Alternatively, you may want to visit the local bakery and coffee shops, literally within a five minute walk.

Fruit trees accessible from the yard include apple, pear, blackberry and an extremely large cherry tree. The herb garden includes mint that may come in handy should you want to build afternoon mojitos for happy hour on the deck.

The fenced yard ensures privacy and safety for your children or pet.

Accessories available to augment your entertainment include Hi-speed WiFi and Netflix, Bose SoundDock, board games, tennis racquets and an acoustic guitar.
