This is a quaint studio on the edge of the woods. You will have the entire cabin to yourself with a beautiful view of Saltspring Island and Trincomali Channel. This Cabin is a wonderful retreat for any couple and can easily accommodate a small child. We will also accept small well behaved pets for an additional $25 per night. If you do bring your animal, please leave the extra fee on the table before you check out. Thank-you.
There is a full kitchen with propane stove and oven, fridge, sink, microwave, kettle and coffee maker and anything else you need to prepare your meals.
The cabin is an open concept with a king sized bed and small futon couch which may convert to sleep one small person. There is a wooden table and chairs in the kitchen area for you to enjoy your meals.
There is a small desk by the window where you can look out over the ocean while writing for pleasure or doing any work you may have to do. Wifi is available for checking email but we encourage you to read a book instead of streaming movies as we have limited bandwidth. We have good cell reception at the cabin as well.
The bathroom is a cozy space with all the modern conveniences, including a hand crafted cedar vanity and tiled shower. There is a state of the art heat pump / air conditioner for your comfort.
Servicios y zonas comunes
Your cottage is private to you. You will have your own parking space next to it. There is ample space at the side of the cabin to sit on the deck chairs and enjoy the ocean view.
I know you will love the amazing stars on a clear dark night, and the profound
silence that one can often experience.

Otros aspectos destacables
There is a fire ban spanning the entire Gulf Islands, including Galiano Island late May through mid October. Please respect my home and our Island by not having fires anywhere on the island. Please refrain from smoking on the property and use common sense and an extreme amount of caution during the fire season. Our island ecology requires a sensitive approach to the use of water and we encourage modest consumption as we are on a septic system here. We recycle and compost to minimize our waste.
- Due to extreme fire hazards on Galiano Island especially during May - October, there are no outdoor fires allowed on the property.
- No smoking in the cottage
- Outdoor smoking is available on the gravel based parking area. Please ash and butt out in the sand bucket provided.
- Please feel free to come to the main house in case of an emergency. Otherwise, please respect my privacy as I will respect yours.
