My place is close to many beautiful lakes and the pacific ocean. Great for hiking, relaxing, bird watching, peace and quiet. Enjoy the insert fireplace or (in fire season) enjoy an outdoor fire in the fire pit. You’ll love the place because of the high ceilings, the trees, the amenities, outdoor shower, the location, and the ambiance. There is a wide screen tv with complimentary netflix and Apple TV. The cottage is great for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), and sleeps up to 6. The many lakes are the best. There are boat rentals and kayaking close by as well as some great restaurants, art stores, golf course, hiking trails, tourist sights, and even horseback riding close by. Coffee is complimentary, along with grinder, bodem, dishes, towels, cutlery, microwave, strong wifi, and many other amenities for your enjoyment. Pets are 12 dollars night additional.

About Tony Papa
i am a filmmaker that travels a lot. I love hosting people at my second home in this beautiful, quiet, peaceful place. I also run a film school in Powell River BC and offer my cottage in-between my stays there. You will love it. It's very quiet and peaceful.
Tony Papa purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Tony Papa chose Garden Bay
This was purchased as a get-a-way for my daughter and myself from the city. Since then we moved to another town further up the coast to run a film school so I don't use this one as much though I love staying there in between hosting guests. It is the perfect balance between secluded and accessible.
What makes this Cottage unique
Unique benefits to this place are the many beautiful lakes, the ocean very close, the quiet and the wonderful trees that surround the place, . Hiking trails are many and there are many great places to discover. Great breakfast places, pubs, golf course and stars to see. It is just a 5 minute walk to the ocean and a 10 minute walk to the beautiful Hotel Lake.

Cozy, everything you need, close to trails
Lovely warm and cozy cottage/cabin, with all the essentials and good technology (fast wifi, Netflix, etc.) for relaxing indoors in the evening (we stayed in deep mid-winter). We found ample trails within walking distance for short hikes with beautiful views. Pender Hill trail is a stone's throw from the door for a quick workout. If we ever went anywhere twice (which we don't) we'd stay here again. Thank you, Tony!
Erica and company were great guests. They left the place in good shape and clean. House rules observed and are welcome back anytime.
Great place and had a lovely time!
This is a little piece of paradise. We wish we would have brought our kayak because we were so close to some of the prettiest lakes I have ever seen. Tony was very receptive and responsive to our requests. Atticus (our labradoodle) had a great time with some hiking trails close by. Nice get away from the big city!
Slice of the Paradise nestled in the Woods
A great stay at the Garden Bay Cottage. Small blip on the radar when we arrived but Tony was very responsive and corrected the issue at hand.
Kitchen was well stocked. We had coffee every morning outside under the trees. The property was conveniently located to awesome trails. We did the Pender trail, at the end of the driveway and right up the street. Also, did Daniel Mountain and took a ride to Skucomchuck Narrows.
I would recommend the cottage and would like to return one day.
Thank you again Tony!
Great Cabin in the Woods
Private well supplied getaway. We were looking for a peaceful few days away and found it. Tony's little hideaway was perfect. Secluded but not secluded. Close enough to the neighbors yet private and perfect. Lots to see and do on the Sunshine Coast. Beautiful lakes abound. Ocean close by and numerous hiking trails. Thanks Tony.
Great having you guys there. Thanks for taking good care of the place. Glad you enjoyed it. Till next time, all good things.
We enjoyed our stay in the comfortable cottage. Great location!
Glad you enjoyed your stay at the garden bay cottage Ann. Hope to see you again. Best,
Thank you Tony for the great weekend at your cottage...
Well organized for 4 people, private, close to lakes and the ocean. Do food shopping on way at Seashell, no stores close by.
Owner, Tony was a call away.
Super place to stay... Thx again... Family of 4 with 2 girls (dogs)
Glad you enjoyed the stay. Actually, IGA food market is only 20 minutes away at Madiera Park. Liquer store, convenience store and breakfast espresso drinks etc. all there in Madiera Park. Also, there is a 10 minute drive to Garden Bay Marina with Food shopping there as well, along with Pub dining etc. Good breakfast there as well. That info is on the postings at cabin. Sorry you missed those. Hard to get it all in one stay. All my best,
