This small self-contained handcrafted cottage overlooks Newcastle Island Park and anchorage. It is a 10 minute foot passenger ferry ride from Nanaimo and 5 minute walk. The cabin suits a single person or couple wanting a simple and elegant retreat. Breakfast supplies are included.
Small (270 sq ft) cabin on my waterfront property on Protection Island. It overlooks Newcastle Island anchorage and is surrounded by arbutus and Douglas-fir trees and meadow. The cabin has a simple kitchen and bathroom (combined), sleeping loft and sitting room. There is a double bed upstairs and a sofa which can be made up as a second bed. If one has mobility issues, the ladder to the loft may be a limiting factor. Recent guests Sam and Tei (all one word when you look it up) did a YouTube video blog on their stay at the cabin on Protection Island that gives one a flavour of a young couple’s stay at the cabin https://youtu.be/yS95dv84HOc. It is called “We moved to Nanaimo” Due to the Corona Virus pandemic, extra cleaning of surfaces will be under-taken. There will be additional time between guests occupying the cabin.
Protection Island is a lovely and friendly community where there is always somebody to help, a musical event to raise funds for a worthy cause and an appreciation for the safe, beautiful natural environment. See the Protection Island web-site for information about parks, protocol and the island.
  • This was awesome! Beautiful view and such a cute island. Inside was amazing and super clean!

    Kiarra2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks so much for your hospitality in your beautiful Cabin Trudy! We'll be back :-)

    Shane2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • Trudy was an outstanding host, and my stay at her place with my wife was fantastic . The place is naturally gorgeous, and Trudy made sure to add every and each special detail to make it even more splendid. I sincerely recommend her to every traveler. The cabin is cozy and quaint, and so is the island.

    Victor2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect getaway with very purposeful design in such a unique hand-built home. Everyone in town was exceedingly friendly and went out of their way to chat and offer advice about the area. Trudy also provided wonderful hommade granola and other breakfast goods - very helpful on an island!

    Eli2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • My second visit, and amazing as usual!

    Dominik2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing 10-day stay at Trudy's place. The little cabin is gorgeous and cozy, with many nice features. The view looking out to Newcastle Island across the water is beautiful and serene. We had a great time walking around Protection Island, kayaking, exploring the trails through the tranquil forest on nearby Newcastle Island, and Nanaimo is only a 10min ferry ride away. Trudy was so thoughtful and helpful during our stay, which really made us feel at home. This place offers such a unique experience and was definitely a highlight of our trip.

    Tom2019-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • Trudy is a top-notch, thoughtful host with great communication and adorable little touches from check in to check out. I visited her cabin to celebrate my first weekend as a Canadian citizen and I don't think I could have chosen a better spot. The cabin is so cozy and welcoming, the views are spectacular, and the island experience is totally unique. We explored Protection Island and ate some tasty seafood there (Dinghy Dock Pub), took a ferry to neighbouring Newcastle Island for a day hike (a stunning provincial park), brunched in Nanaimo at a farm-to-table restaurant (Gabriel's Gourmet Cafe) and a local hot spot (The Vault), and relaxed in all the nature. I wish I spent another day to check out Gabriola Island, but that'll be for next time. Thanks Trudy!!

    Duggan2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Trudy’s cabin is an amazing place to stay on Protection Island. She is super helpful and friendly and T-dog was a welcome surprise greeter upon our arrival. The views are fantastic and it was a lovely place to stay for a weekend away! Thank you so much Trudy!

  • My partner and I had a wonderful stay at Bree's place, she had great attention to little details, and view really was excellent. A perfect island getaway!

    Liz2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • “Simple, Modern, Comfortable, Clean Studio, Perfect For Anniversary❤️” There is a nice view from the window. The room and the bath are clean. Amazing BATHTUB! Nice view of the harbour from our window. Liked this place a lot.

  • Everything was perfect.

    Minette2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • The location is beautiful and all the extra thoughtful touches made it an extra special stay. I arrived to classical music playing and a warm fire going in the fireplace. There was milk, coffee, treats and snacks. Beautiful shampoos an the bath is gorgeous with the view. Curling up in the window seat (again with the view) makes this an amazing retreat-like setting. 5 star - including three beautiful deer that quietly walked by my window as I gazed at the ocean view.

    Frank (Ty)2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The bathroom is fantastic--especially the tub and dual shower. The view is gorgeous and we saw deer right outside every day! Bree is a gracious host and the kitchen is well stocked--I especially appreciated the cooking spray and spices.

    Jean2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome stay. Beautiful view and very nicely decorated. Loved the jacuzzi!

    Melissa2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • The cozy abode served us well over the weekend. Tucked away with a beautiful ocean view, we didn’t turn the tv on once. We nestled on the bay window the entire time. Watching the water and the deer feed. Location was pretty handy, we were 20-30 mins from our hiking spots. Great weekend all around!

    Clean, Quiet and relaxing space to just unwind for that special time for you
    quiet and respectful is how I would describe our neighbors. The Deer and Rabbits are fun to watch and so are the Orca whales if you are lucky to be here when they pass by the house.
  • Nice place in a super quiet neighborhood. The hot tub is nice and has a view of the ocean, the whole place was very clean, And the check in was a breeze. Thanks for having me

    Tristan2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing location! Cozy, quaint and exactly as described! The kitchen is stocked with anything you would need to make your own meals and the bathroom has everything you would need incase you forgot anything. Super quick with responding to questions and they give you tips on local restaurants, pubs grocery stores etc. Our only regret is having stayed only one night.

    Keri2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely and private space, very comfortable. We walked down to the beach and would recommend that everyone make some time to do the same.

    Jeremy2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Quiet location, private, clean, and welcoming with great communication. Would definitely recommend!

    Steve2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Such a beautiful space with amazing views, and many thoughtful details. It was our second trip to Alan and Gillians place and it was just as lovely as the first time. Definitely recommend this stay and these wonderful hosts.

  • What an amazing cabin. Everything you could ask for and so much more. Private, quiet, lovely walks and trails close by, filled with thoughtful touches. A perfect location for our ladies SPA trip....Tigh-na-mera is just up the highway. A true delight.

    Maxine2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Can not recommend enough - the hosts have gone out their way to make this such a welcoming and restful retreat in the woods!

    Emily2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay here. It is so quiet and dark nestled in the trees. You can walk straight out the door and join up with numerous hiking trails. The cabin itself is near the family home but is very private, lots of thoughtful touches and a full kitchen where we cooked our dinners. Quick drive in to town too if you want food.

    Sophie2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

    Zak2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Magic house in the woods! The setting is great and the hosts are very welcoming and attentive! The accommodation is clean and functional and the bedding is of high quality!

    Laura2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a lovely weekend /Chinese new year at Cheryl and Lori’s cabin. It was absolutely worth to stay! My fav part is the loft TV area and the big windows. I would love to come back another time(maybe summer time) so we can explore more in the woods. They welcomed us when we arrived and introduced us about the cabin. The cabin was heated when we got there so it’s very warm inside. The drive way was very clear(the view is beautiful on the way), you just need to read about the instructions provided. We had everything we needed. They even had eggs and snacks prepared <3 PLUS We saw a few deers in the morning just outside the cabin!! 5star for you!Thank you for having us!

    Zoe2020-01-25T00:00:00Z

    Step back in time and enjoy staying in a rustic, one room log cabin, with modern amenities to make your stay more comfortable. Perfect for 2, our cabin is small (225 sq. ft.) but cozy, with a kitchenette,3 piece bathroom & queen sized bed. We are close to several Provincial Parks, beautiful beaches, shops and restaurants. For those with larger groups, or who just prefer more space, we also list a 2 bedroom 'Scenic Cottage in the Woods' nestled in the trees on the same property.
    Log cabin in quiet, rural area on 10 acre, mostly treed lot, which guests have access to. Free parking beside the cabin. There are many well-groomed hiking and walking trails nearby and we are a short drive to many local attractions. Friendly and approachable hosts live on the property, and are more than happy to offer information about the area, but also respect your privacy.
    You can enjoy the tranquility of our quiet, rural, mainly treed area, but in less than 10 minutes you can be in Parksville or Coombs, where you can access amenities such as grocery stores, shopping, galleries, museums and restaurants (fast food, fine dining, local and organic.) We are 3 minutes from the North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre, and less than 10 to the beautiful Englishman River Falls Provincial Park, and the famous 'Goats on the Roof' Market in Coombs. We are close (15 min.) to the beautiful beaches of Parksville and Rathtrevor Provincial Park. There are many local walking and hiking trails from easy to more challenging. Cathedral Grove's amazing old growth forest walks and the picturesque town of Qualicum Beach are each about a 20 minute drive from us. You can go caving at Horne Lake Caves in 40 minutes, hike or ski at Mount Washington in an hour, or in just over 2 hours, enjoy the sand or surf at Tofino and Ucluelet on our Island's west coast.
  • We had a great stay at the cabin. The location is nice and quite, away from the hubbub of life, tucked away in the forest.

    Shannon2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Nice small little cabin! Perfect for two people. The host was very accommodating during the check-in and also very knowledgeable about local destinations and restaurants. Highly recommended.

    Brian2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Sparkling clean and the extra touches just exceeded our experience.

    Marissa2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • We only stayed for one night but will definitely be considering staying again for longer. We arrived around 10 pm, and Jack let us into the cabin. He was very polite even though we arrived later than we had planned. The cabin is very small, but is a perfect space for 2. I loved listening to the birds in the morning. The bathroom is quite cramped though. Jack told us he was in the process of fixing the shower door so that it doesn't close in. Being a bit of a bigger lady made getting into the shower a bit difficult so when that is fixed it's completely perfect.

    Kimberley2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Nice and cozy little cabin for a getaway trip. Definitely will come back in the summer.

    Quỳnh Như2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Nice relaxing place - you'll en joy it!

    Barry2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • This was such a cozy little cabin. Everything we needed was provided. They even had made some cookies for us. I liked it that Jack showed us around in the cabin and talked a bit with us. We liked this personal approach, since a lot of the time you don't see the host itself. We recommend this cabin to anyone else!

    Berm2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Clean, quiet, functional. Was perfect for myself while in the area for work.

    ***We are happy to announce that the Micro Cabin made it on 604now's 2020 BC Bucket List*** Come see why we're one of the most wish-listed Airbnbs in the Pacific Northwest, as featured in Cottage Life and Canadian Living magazines! The Micro Cabin is nestled on a heritage homestead surrounded by lush garden and towering cedars. The ocean and the hobbit village of Roberts Creek are two minutes away. Enjoy a solo retreat or a relaxing getaway for two while trying out tiny house living!
    We are very proud to be the highest-rated listing and one of only a handful of Airbnb-verified properties on the Sunshine Coast! LAST-MINUTE AND SAME-DAY BOOKINGS: The Micro Cabin is kept ready for guests so if you need a place to stay (even on very short notice), go ahead and use the "Instant Book" feature. Our calendar is always up to date, too! The 125-square-foot Micro Cabin was inspired by the tiny house movement. Guests should be aware that this is a tiny cabin, which means -- it is a tiny cabin! The space is small but bright and airy, with high ceilings and lots of windows and natural light. We think you'll find it to be carefully laid out and thoughtfully appointed. In the winter the cabin stays very warm and cozy, even on the coldest nights. We are very close to the ocean so it seldom gets very cold here and rarely snows. The full-size bed is made up with 100% cotton linens to ensure a good night's sleep. The kitchen is well stocked with all that you need to make something delicious. The bathroom is a fully tiled wet bath like that on a boat. There is plenty of outdoor space here on our private acreage to sit and daydream or finally start writing that novel. Relax at the picnic table with a mug of hot tea and watch the sunrise or gaze at the stars. If you're lucky you might see one of our resident deer and her two fawns wandering around the property. Black bears live here, too! Our small homestead is one of the oldest in Roberts Creek on the Sunshine Coast. We live on the property in the original farmhouse that was built in 1926 for the area's first school teacher. We look forward to sharing our slice of paradise with you.
    Roberts Creek is a whimsical ocean-side haven for nature lovers, artists, and forward thinkers. If you consider yourself any of these, you'll fit right in around here!
  • Wonderful micro cabin in a tranquil wooded setting. The property is quiet, and the cabin spotless and well-equipped. Lots of great things to explore in the Roberts Creek area.

    Mike2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Karen's tiny cabin is super cozy and makes for a perfect quiet getaway! I spend 3 days there by myself and had a great time either staying in with a book, or exploring the area :)

  • We loved our stay! I can't recommend this place enough. This beautiful tiny home is just the right size for a weekend getaway for two. It had everything you needed. We arrived to cold beers in the fridge and a personalised card welcoming us. It's a short walk to a quiet beach, 20 minutes to the local cafe and a 10 minute drive to Gibson's. I can't wait to stay here again.

    Victoria2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    Tiny cabin in the woods! Very private 200 sq foot cabin with cozy loft on gorgeous Gabriola Island. Close to beaches, village, farmers market and artist studios. Cabin is set up with kitchenette, toilet and shower. A cute little home base space for you while you explore all Gabriola Island has to offer! Please note Gabriola Island is a rural community that is two ferry trips away from Vancouver that is best experienced if you have your own car.
    Enjoy this tiny cabin with loft as your home base as you explore the Isle of the Arts! Gabriola has amazing beaches, stunning sunsets, many artist studios, live music and theater. Close to beaches and trails, this quiet and private space is the perfect (and affordable!) space for your Gulf Island experience. Ideal for artist retreat! Please note: Access to the double bed is up a ladder to a cozy loft. The cabin is situated in a rural area, about a 6 minute drive from the ferry, village and beaches or 30-40 minute walk with some long steep hills. Some folks have found the walk to be quite challenging, some folks find it easy. The cabin is cool and breezy in summer and warm and cozy in winter. Well behaved, well socialized dogs are welcome here. If you intend on bringing your dog, please indicate this so we can review guidelines. We have two dogs on the property who will greet visitors enthusiastically.
    Bordering on Rollo McLay Park which has great trails and open fields for night time stargazing. The neighbourhood is very quiet with the occasional dog walker strolling by. Mature trees on the property give it a woodsy feel.
  • The cutest little place ever! Tina is such a lovely host as well, the dogs are adorable!

    Very Private cute 450 square foot 1 bedroom cottage with covered patio backing on a park, surrounded by trees and in a beautiful, natural, Gulf Island setting. Has a full kitchen, bathroom, washer/dryer and sitting/living area. Comes with a covered private parking spot.
    The cabin is very private and nicely secluded. My guests have really appreciated the feeling of being tucked in the woods and yet near to amenities. It's a magical spot backing on a park, lots of birds and nature. It's beautiful and serene!
  • This space was phenomenal, and I can see why Carmen is a superhost. The cabin was everything we expected and more — beautiful, cozy, and nestled in wilderness. Carmen went above and beyond in answering our questions in a timely manner, giving us directions and tips, and offering us a few extras when we forgot beach towels. If we could give 6 stars we would. Thank you for such a pleasant trip - we’ll be back in a heartbeat.

    Megan2020-01-02T00:00:00Z

    Maria2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Carmen's place is a cozy oasis in the forest. It's located behind her home, but feels very private. We enjoyed watching the Steller's Jays and other birds at the feeder outside the kitchen window, as well as the nearby hiking.

    Renata2019-11-22T00:00:00Z

  • Beautiful property with wonderful views, friendly dogs and an amazing breakfast. Thank you so much!

  • What a lovely location for a trip. The property is spectacular, great accommodations, very clean and spacious. Do order the breakfast, it is delivered to your suite, hot and delicious. Suzanne is a kind host and offered great recommendations of things to do in Gabriola Island. The view from the suite is fabulous rain or shine.

    Liz2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, really helpful host and fantastic breakfasts! Will definitely stay again on return to Gabriela Island.

    Penny2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely country property located on the rocky west shore of Gabriola. Suzanne was very welcoming as were the friendly dogs. This is more than a ‘room’, it’s a spacious apartment, private and tastefully decorated, not to mention clean. You can expect gourmet breakfasts with homegrown fruits and veggies from the garden, if you choose to. We highly recommend them. We would definitely come back here!

    Stephanie2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely enjoyed our stay at the Salty Dog. The accommodations were clean, cozy and comfortable. The location was fantastic, the beds were awesome and the views and places to sit and relax were beautiful. Suzanne is a very accommodating host and her breakfasts were amazing. Loved having the dogs around and wished we had more time with them but there was so much going on to keep us out and about on the island we wished we would have planned at least a 5 day stay. Wonderful place to enjoy some good quiet, re-connecting and reflection time.

    Frances2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic spot! Very clean, comfy beds, spacious, and the location is absolutely beautiful. I would highly recommend staying here, and hope to return! Suzanne was also delightful to interact with. We chose to add the $10 breakfast in the morning, and it was delicious. Overall, great experience!

    Morgan2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Splendid place to recover and feel in peace with yourself. Suzanne and Gary are great hosts. Booking Suzannes very tasty home made breakfast 🍳 is highly recommended. Clean and lovely space with lots of room to yourself. We enjoyed especially our daily little swim in the cold water and the beautiful deck on the rock. You will enjoy your stay!

    Gorgeous, well appointed Tiny Home for your total comfort and pleasure! On five acres of forested but bright land, right in the middle of beautiful Gabriola Island. Comfortably sleeps three.
    The garden and large clearing! Neighbouring 700 acres of parkland filled with trails and beauty!

  • We loved our stay in Yvonne's tiny home which is on a wooded property that is secluded from the road and others. The tiny home is 10meters or so from the main house. It is well built and designed with handsome and thoughtful details everywhere such as live edge shelving and a sliding/barn door to the bathroom. It did not feel cramped at all for two. We enjoyed the sound of the rain on the two skylights and felt very comfortable there. The toilet, while unusual, is not difficult to use once you read the instructions. Everything was clean, check in was easy and there are instructions prior to your stay to walk you through any questions you might have about the place. It was very warm just with the plug in oil heater in early January. No need to use the propane heater if it makes you nervous! Thanks for the stay

    Willow2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • This is a stylish tiny home that feels more spacious than expected, given its tiny dimensions, thanks to its high ceiling and loft bed area. Very good layout, with a great kitchen and a very comfortable bathroom. Everything was very clean and comfortable. Some mindfulness is necessary when reading (and following) instructions for the waterless toilet and the propane heater. However, as long as you are a considerate guest (or two), this place will be a delightful island getaway.

    Alison2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Quiet, private, new tiny house. Clean and cozy. Perfect for a weekend getaway!

    Steven2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay in Yvonne’s tiny home. The location was easy to find, beautiful and very comfortable. It was exactly what we needed! The island is also amazing!

    Morgan2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I had a wonderful stay in Yvonne's tiny house! The amenities were exactly as described, and we would certainly stay here again. Yvonne was a lovely host, excellent with communications. Highly recommend!

    Stephanie2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing property to get away from it all. Very peaceful and quiet. The tiny home is an amazing space and everything works really well in the space.

    Matt And Angela2019-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Very sweet and well appointed tiny house (with huge shower!). It was a lovely property, and it must have been exuding good vibes because my daughter took her first step out in the yard! Nice and bright, be ready to wake with the sun!

    Alex2019-04-29T00:00:00Z

    My cabin is 5 minutes from the Surf Lodge & Ocean on Berry point road, Twin Beaches and 10 minutes to Malaspina caves. It's a fabulous rustic get-away in a tranquil garden setting for couples or families, close to beaches and parks, the perfect vacation! Time to chill!
    The main floor has a well-stocked kitchen, dining area, living room with woodstove, bathroom and a bedroom with a bunk bed that sleeps 2. The 2nd floor has a queen-size poster bed with a bathroom and a seating area. It is a sanctuary in 1 acre of garden- help yourself to raspberries in the summer or cozy up to the fire in the winter. There is a pond with a bridge and froggies galore surrounded by tropical banana plants, calla lilies and ginger. We call our sanctuary "Aina" which in hawaiian means "that which sustains us." Enjoy and chillout!
    Gabriola has the best to offer as a Gulf Island, quick access to quiet beaches, walks in the forest, cycling, kayaking, an arts community and a tranquil respite from urban hubbub and bustle. Time to slow down and smell the roses or check out the birds and frogs in our garden.
  • Cozy & comfortable & pet friendly!

    Sonia2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is a perfect place to stay on a beautiful and quiet island. Everything was as promised and the cabin is amazing, so cute, cozy and comfortable.

    Nick2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely place. Cosy, beautiful, well maintained, a gorgeous setting, hot showers, prompt and helpful responses from Julia

    Wanda And Eric2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing garden and pond , peaceful , serene and the each piece of furniture seems carefully selected to make for a cozy retro livingspace once inside.

    Neill2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Clean And quiet. a perfect get away. The cottage has everything you need and the gardens are like heaven. WiFi provides which is great as the island has poor cell service. The cottage has all you could need and more. Julia is amazing to deal with and is sweet and fast to reply. Amazing experience! Will be back for sure !!! 10/10. 10 stars!!!

    Jennifer2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very lovely place to stay for peace and quiet . Had an amazing time

    Jade2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • This location is a true gem! Beauty abounds, both inside the cabin and in the incredible garden. Kitchen is well stocked and you’ll won’t lack for anything. Check-in and communication with host was smooth.

    Eleanor2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at julia’s place was my favourite Airbnb to date. The photos don’t give the garden justice. We spent hours outside playing together. Her home was warm and welcoming. We really appreciated the special touches. There was fresh fruit picked from the garden for our arrival. The kitchen was fully stocked, this made cooking meals easy and stress free. I would highly recommend Julia’s place to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway to Gabriola Island.

  • We loved the cabin. Much bigger actually than expected. We've been renting a cabin for the last 5 years on Airbnb over the Christmas/New Year period for a week and this was the most spacious so far. Plenty for the four of us: me and my girlfriend and three kids: 12, 13 and 14 year old. Well equipped kitchen with great pots and pans which served me well as we like cooking. Plenty of firewood to keep the cabin warm (there are also electric wall mounted heaters). Just a few minutes drive from the Gabriola "town center" where you'll find a super market with great selection and several other shops and a coffee shop. Ian is a great host with quick response and helpful information. Definitely a 5-star. --Patric

    Patric2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • A private retreat ... with all the amenities.

    Christine2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Ian was a wonderful host and his place - spectacular. Our first trip to Gabriola exceeded our expectations.

    Colette2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable log home with amazing wood stove. Host was very responsive to questions. Perfect place for our family to spend Thanksgiving. Highly recommended.

    Jonathan2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • This a beautifully designed and built cabin with a lovely yard and garden. It accommodated our group of seven bicyclists well. We were especially appreciative of the very well equipped kitchen and barbecue. Ian was very responsive and flexible with our larger group. Guests should be aware that Gabriola is a steep island in the neighborhood where the cabin is located, so travel by bicycle or walking to the ferry and the village takes time without a car. But it’s a gorgeous place.

    Steve2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • There's not enough superlatives to describe this space or the host. The cabin was spotless, beautifully designed, and very private. We loved cooking here, the beds were comfy, and the yard was large enough for many great family games of frisbee. Ian truly is a Super Host, as kind as he is efficient! He left very detailed instructions, there was everything we could need to cook with in the kitchen, and he was prompt to address questions we had, and even to offer understanding and support when our son's car broke down, had to go to the shop, and we were possibly looking at a late check out. Gabriola is a special community: We loved the beaches, Elder Cedar Nature Reserve, and Malaspina Galleries. Plus the people are warm and welcoming. If you have automotive trouble, Gabriola Automotive is the best! If we ever return to Vancouver Island, we'll go back to the island and Ian's place in a heartbeat!

    Elizabeth2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Ian's stunning log cabin offers an exquisite golden hued interior with a lovely aesthetic and an extremly welcoming ambiance. Providing our group of three senior ladies with the perfect place in which to spend almost 4 days of mostly inclement weather. The kitchen is extremely well stocked and a dream to work in, the large bathroom is beautifully decorated, the beds are comfortable, and always complete peace and quiet. The many birds coming to feed a few inches from almost every window provided constant delights! Location is excellent... a few minutes drive from shops and services and ferries. And lastly but most importantly, a thank you to Ian our Superhost. Attentive and responsive in all communications and going the extra mile to ensure a comfortable stay.

    Monika2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly as listed. Private yet central to shopping, beaches, etc.. Amazing bird life and lots of deer.

    Custom built home tucked in the woods with all the privacy one could ask for. Large deck and yard for relaxing and enjoying the local wildlife. We are centrally located and offer easy access to all that Gabriola has to offer. In the winter, enjoy a quiet getaway with a wood fire burning stove and a two person Jacuzzi tub.
    There are three bedrooms - a master bedroom in the loft with an ensuite, two bedrooms on the main floor with another full washroom. Laundry room in the basement.
    We are situated in the center of the island where all the properties are a minimum of 5 acres in size. We are situated on the end of a road adjacent to a large park.
  • Expect a clean, spacious, comfortable, delightful home away from everything yet a short drive to the nearby village.

    Kerry2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a delightful, quiet getaway, then this is definitely the spot. It is tucked away from town and everyone, but close enough to all the amenities the island offers. We loved this bright and open house in the middle of the forest , with trails literally off the backyard! Our dog loved the fenced backyard. The kitchen is super well stocked with every utensil you’ll need, and stuffed with spices, tea, and other basic kitcheny things. We loved having a fire place to gather around, it made it super cozy. The beds were comfy, the master suite upstairs is bedroom goals!! We never got around to using the jacuzzi as we were out hiking but it looks gorgeous and we hope to try it again next time. It sleeps 6 in 3 private rooms but there are additional mattresses for larger groups when privacy is less of a concern! We 100% recommend!

    Timothy2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful. Secluded. Beautiful. Clean. Private. Great with kids.

    Nimrod2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Truly a beautiful place to get away! We had a beautiful Friends-mas here, swooning by the woodstove and marveling at the forest around us. The space is stocked up with everything you'd need for a lovely getaway. Already thinking about the next time we can come back!

    Sacia2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fabulous time at this ‘home in the woods’. The home was very well outfitted for the 6 of us adults + 1 infant. It was the perfect setting for our crafting retreat. Gabriola is such a lovely little island with so many things to check out. We will definitely be back again! Thanks for everything, Katie

    Katie2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing spot in the woods. Calm and clean, great fireplace!

    Valerie2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Such a cozy spot for a getaway! This dog friendly spot is great for groups with dogs, we had a lovely time walking the trails. The indoor fire was a lovely addition, and the master bedroom/bathroom is incredible. Lots of kitchen supplies (spices, oils, teas, pots and pans!).

    Georgia2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Place is great! Lovely property on a lovely island. Place is close to walking trails and the house is cozy for those rainy days. Loved the game we found in the table!

  • We enjoyed our stay in Mudge! It was quick to get over to Mudge from Gabriola thanks to the water taxi that Maryann helped us organize. Tom the water taxi driver was on time and provided some excellent local tips. Maryann was great to communicate with prior to our trip. The cottage was just as described. Cozy living room with a wood stove made for a perfectly relaxing place to watch the sea and the sunrise. A great stay for 5 guests and we all had our own beds. Highly recommend!

    Brenda & Ich2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Maryann and Randy’s place is wonderful. A super relaxing retreat. Beautiful views with whales, frogs, and hummingbirds. We ate oysters on the beach and swam every day. The kayaks are great fun and exploring the island is wonderful. Highly recommended!

    M+J2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is SUCH a cute spot. We loved the somewhat off the grid feel of this Mudge Island cottage and really appreciated all the care Maryann took in ensuring we were well prepared when we went out there. If you're from a big city and use to going places that are essentially cottages with regular city services, be aware that this is a more rustic experience, but in the best ways! I'd suggest touching base with the host to ensure you understand what getting on and off Mudge will entail so there's no surprises as you finalize your trip. But the cottage is sweet, the island is gloriously quiet and relaxed, the oysters/clams/crabs/mussels really are there for you to capture and slurp and the scenery is drop dead gorgeous. Everyone should see this part of Canada. The kitchen was especially awesome - it was equipped with just about everything we needed and all the little extras - kayaks, crab traps, bbq, awesome decks, hammock - made this such a special trip for our family. Definitely go!

    Danielle2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Had an amazing time at this lovely beach home! Maryann was quick to respond to any questions and made sure we were comfortable getting to her home. We spent our days beach combing and enjoying the deck. This place is very secluded and there are no restaurants or pubs, but we planned out our meals for the week and had no issues. So happy we went!

    Mudge Island , BC, Canada

    Guaranteed this is the "BEST" location! We are located along what is known as Gabriola's "Magic Mile", a scenic road which has a reputation for some of the most beautiful shoreline in BC and world-class sunset. House is sited on the oceanfront with a spectacular panoramic ocean view, facing the famous "Entrance Island Lighthouse". Gabriola's iconic sunset beach (also famous for storm or whale watching) is just next door (LITERALLY it's on your doorstep!).
    750 sq ft self-contained oceanfront house with a spectacular view of the beautiful Georgia Strait and coastal mountains. It is on its own sunny & bright half acre waterfront property facing "Entrance Island Lighthouse". The open floor plan is designed for entertaining and included a full kitchen and bathroom with a washer and dryer. The bedroom has a queen bed with antique furniture and the living room has a comfortable sofa bed. Good size bright deck with ocean view one side and sunset view the other side. Watch the sunset from your deck and view all kinds of marine wildlife including whales, seals, and sea lions from the front yard. Gabriola's most beautiful beach is just next door, perfect for an afternoon swim or post-dinner stroll.
    Berry Point area is the most desirable place to live and visit in Gabriola. When you visit here you definitely will understand the reason. Although Gabriola's most famous beach is sitting just a stone's throw away from us this neighborhood has an incredibly peaceful setting as we are at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. You can be an excited tourist and a minute later you find yourself tucked away from all of that and enjoy your quiet time. And it is not only one of the most beautiful area in Gabriola but also it's in convenient location. Walking distance to local pub & restaurant, 5 minutes from Twin Beaches Mall and Haven resort and less than 10 minutes from ferry terminal and Gabriola's downtown core for shopping and dining.
  • Had a great stay at Park's oceanfront rental.

    Neil2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location with view of Georgia Strait and coast mountains, very comfortable cozy cottage with great amenities, great hosts. Would love to return to this spot some day.

    Brent2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This is the second stay at Parks cottage. It is basic, and comfortable. The location is excellent !

    Jean2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is in the perfect location when visiting Gabriola Island. It is clean, and cozy. We would definitely stay again!

    Jean2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • The house is located on a beautiful part of Gabriola yet is convenient to everything. Park and her husband are generous hosts and responsive to all our needs while still allowing as much privacy as we wanted. The view is outstanding and the fruit from their orchard delicious and a welcome treat. Every evening we walked down the driveway to Olebar Point to watch the sunset. The dolphins, sea lions, sea otters and purple starfish were a wonderful bonus.

    Sharon2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • We came to Gabriola last year and really wanted to return especially to Orlebar Point so it was great to find Park's property on the site. Great wee cottage and the location was perfect. A few seconds walk from the most amazing views where we have watched eagles, vultures, otters, sealions and orca. The cottage is basic in design but well equipped and comfy. Park her self is lovely. Warm, welcoming and very generous with her time. Being a stones throw from the Surf Lodge was a real bonus too. A 10 minute stroll along the road or rocks/beach where we spent many late afternoons and evenings on the balcony watching the world go by. I really hope to return here ( or the other house Park has very nearby ) soon.

    Barryjohn (Bj)2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location! Stunning views & fab walks on gorgeous beach from front door. So peaceful.

    Kimberly2019-07-30T00:00:00Z

    Welcome to our little patch of paradise! The gardens, the pocket ocean and Nanaimo views, ocean breezes and hammocks await you.

We also offer all natural and/or organic options for our food, bedding (organic bamboo or 100% cotton), bathroom and cleaning supplies. As well as we shop local as much as we can also.

  • Ken and Aubrey have a sweet little cabin on Gabriola, conveniently located close to the ferry. They were very accommodating and flexible regarding our check-in time as we had a birthday party to attend and would be gone late into the night. The beds were super comfortable and there were lovely, healthy snacks that kept the kids' hunger at bay in the morning. I would definitely stay at their cabin again!

    Natasha2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay and really enjoyed exploring Gabriola. Such a nice little hideaway.

    Scott2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean, quaint and wholesome. So many neat little touches. The bed is so soft you never want to leave. Place is easy to find. We would stay here again. 👍

    Maxime2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • It's a nice little compact space made really welcoming with home made touches. We wanted a quick blast of Gulf Island sunshine this was a great place to access it from. Ken and Aubrey we're really welcoming and helped us with anything they could to make our stay more enjoyable.

    James2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • My partner, 7 year old son and I had such a great weekend getaway staying in this little cabin! It absolutely exceeded our expectations and we would absolutely love to stay here again! The perfect place for a small family! It’s a small one bedroom cabin, but the space has been made use of well. It didn’t feel super cramped or like we were on top of each other, just cozy (even with the queen bed and bunk bed in one room, which we had worried about). They’ve also stocked the cabin with plenty of little things to make it feel like home, like a couple of games and some DVDs. And there were snacks that made life with a kiddo a lot easier. The scones they left for our first morning were delicious, although there were only two of them for three of us (so we hid them from the little one and he had oatmeal instead). There were also the cutest tiny little thumb-sized jars of jam in really lovely flavours. Pretty much anything we could have needed was right there in the suite. And the hosts were super helpful and provided us with a great list of stuff to do on the island. The weather while we there was beautiful and we enjoyed sitting outside in the yard with our coffee, and our son loved having access to their little treehouse. On our last morning there he even got to play with the resident kiddo (which he was thrilled about, and it kept him busy enough that packing wasn’t nearly as tedious as it could have been with him under foot) and we stuck around after checkout to help them set up a trampoline which further thrilled the tiny human (and he insists we must go back again so he can bounce for even longer with his new friend).

    Molly2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • A cute, charming space to relax and unwind. Very peaceful!

    Jason2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Everything at Ken and Aubrey's cabin was as described. It was perfect for our overnight stay in Gabriola.

    People get lost here, only to find their way home. Relax and enjoy the island lifestyle that Gabriola offers to all its visitors. So much to enjoy and experience. LGBT friendly.
    The wooded neighbourhood is a perfect place to walk and jog. We are a 15 minute hike to the Village.
  • Great place, would highly recommend

    Yogita2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay here was simply fantastic! Irene's hospitality went above and beyond - she really made sure we had anything and everything we could possibly need. It was so wonderful to have a host that was so friendly and made us feel so at home. The space was spotlessly clean and well-supplied. 10/10 would recommend, and we can't wait to come back!

    Alena2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent stay at Irene's place. I rate Irene as the best hostess of all the places we've stayed at with AirBnB in the last four years. Fresh flowers on the table, milk for or granola and cream for our coffee in the fridge, as well as muffins and a bowl of fresh fruit. She took the time to show us how to operate the pellet stove and all the appliances and was very congenial and hung around to chat, making us feel welcome in her home. She had us up for breakfast at her place the next morning and we made a souffle breakfast for her the next day, so then she up the ante and made a delicious frittata the next day. When it was time to leave, she had made us snacks for the road. Lovely accommodations. Lots of room. Well laid out. Our best recommendations. Johnny and Heather

    John2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Rene was a great host. Always sure to make our needs were met and going the extra mile to make us feel at home. Would definitely stay again.

    Jeremy2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • It was so lovely staying at Rene's place. She was an outstanding host and made us feel so welcomed. We had never had our host make us breakfast before, so that was an extra sweet delight. The landscape is gorgeous! Her wrap-around deck attracts a plethora of wildlife, from flickers to stellar jays. You will find the day pass by as you happily watch the birds come to feed. The suite is accessible to the main core of Gabriola; all the shops and restaurants are only about a 25 minute walk away. The pellet fire keeps the suite toasty warm, and the bed was delightfully cozy. We would happily stay here again!

    This is one of two cottages with views of the Salish Sea and amazing sunsets. Otters, California Sealions, Seals and Bald Eagles are just some of the wildlife you can watch with Humpback Whales and Orca as well. This cottage is also warm and wonderful in the winter months watchingthe waves crash and dramatic skies. The second cottage ("Aqua Cottage") on this property is sometimes available for simultaneous booking, so two groups could book together.
    These heritage cottages sit about 40 feet above the water offering unobstructed views. There is a Weber BBQ for guest use stored in Sage Cottage and a full size BBQ on the deck of the front cottage, along with utensils
    Berry Point Rd comes to a dead end at the most spectacular view point of the light house, the mainland and of course the sunsets. Few cars go by and so it is quiet and peaceful. We are about 7 minutes from the village by car at the north end of the island.
  • Cosy cabin with a fantastic view. Well equipped kitchen and next to the Surf Pub and Restauraunt for those who want to eat out. Right on one of Gabriola’s most scenic stretches of waterfront.

    Jeremy2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • We spent four days at the cottage in mid-August and had a lovely time. The location is equal parts quiet yet next door to a fine place for a drink & dinner and then quite close by car to the main shopping area. The cottage is cozy and well-furnished with fine views of the water and we felt very comfortable there with our three-month-old. Many thanks!

    Brett2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Kevin (Allison's husband) was our host for the weekend, he had many local tips, took great care of us and we truly enjoyed our sunny sunsets on the patio of our cabin. The cabin itself has all the amenities and special decor from Alison. The bed is super comfy and this is a perfect getaway (Gabriola is very good to tourists) for a weekend!

    Elanor2019-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • Tremendous views, peaceful and quiet. The sunsets are breathtaking and the location is private, yet close to amenities. Highly recommend.

    S2018-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Unfortunately, we weren't able to meet Alison as she was called away for the week to the mainland. However, she provided all the information needed to allow us to find the cottage, gain entry, and settle in. We found the area quiet and located just across the frontage road from a lovely beach where you can watch the sunsets and spot the ferries making their way to and from Nanaimo. The cottage is very clean and the amenities adequate. The kitchen is well equipped and has a range/oven and refrigerator with freezer. There is sufficient kitchenware to cook your own meals as long as you keep it simple. There is no microwave, but that wasn't an issue for us. The bath features a roomy neo-angle shower, small sink vanity and toilet. Great bedding and an extremely comfortable queen-size bed are there for your comfort. Best sleep ever! The only WiFi connection seems to be an open one emanating from the Surf Lodge Pub next door. (It is very faint--can't be counted on. Hopefully you have your own connectivity. We didn't, but managed to get by.) There is no TV, or movies. But there are some enjoyable books. So if you are looking to disconnect--you will be very happy. (I read a couple of the books provided--one of the benefits of no TV or internet!) All in all--a very good home-away-from-home! Many thanks-

    Cheryl (And Ron)2018-04-06T00:00:00Z

    One of Gabriola's only legal short term vacation rentals. The Garden Bed Guesthouse and Farm offers a newly renovated, two bedroom, self contained house on a small working farm. Less than 1 KM to amenities and ferry service to Nanaimo. We offer guests an opportunity to collect eggs, feed our alpacas, and have a glimpse into a Gulf Island farm. The guesthouse comes pre-stocked with breakfast items to enjoy at your leisure!
    Centrally located with easy walking to the ferry and amenities.
  • Our stay was excellent! The place was absolutely spotless and very cozy. We especially appreciated all the breakfast items that were left and we would definitely stay there again.

    Diana2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • The guesthouse was beautifully kept, clean and stocked. The beds were extremely comfortable . The house and property was very family friendly. It was warm and inviting. Stocked full of delicious breakfast foods (eggs, yogurt, milk, bread, coffee, tea, creamer, granola, fresh fruit), my husband is still talking about the granola (only one of the many wonderful touches). The hosts were very thoughtful. The entire house was stocked with everything you need and more for your stay. The location was amazing (2 minutes from the store and gas station). We would defiantly recommend anyone visiting Gabriola to stay here. Thank you for ensuring our weekend away was amazing.

    Jenn2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Jessica and Aaron are great hosts! The cabin is impeccably clean and equipped with all the items for a very comfortable stay. The farm is amazing and Aaron was kind enough to take the time out of his busy day to show us around. The breakfast items were such a lovely touch with fresh eggs and delicious home made granola :)

    Lubov2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy, lovely spot. This place was perfect for our visit and family friendly with the farm and zip line. We will look forward to staying here again.

    Leneigh2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • This stay was a lot of fun. It was a very nice experience to be in a cozy house next to many animals. The ingredients for breakfast were plentiful and fresh and the hosts very open and friendly. It was totally clean place. The ocean was just 30 minutes walk and the supermarket was also close and well equipped.

    Nicole2019-08-16T00:00:00Z

  • This private, spacious cabin was perfect for our special weekend away. It’s obvious that the hosts took special care in making sure everything we might need was provided, including a wonderful assortment of breakfast foods for us to enjoy. My favourite part was enjoying our morning cooffee on the deck, and visiting the chickens & alpacas. We really enjoyed our visit to Gabriola, made all the better with such a pleasant stay at Aaron’s & Jessica’s.

    Unbeatable location! We are located along what is known as Gabriola's "Magic Mile", a scenic road with a big reputation for the beautiful shoreline in BC and world class sunset. House is on waterfront property. You have complete privacy from all directions and spectacular panoramic ocean views from every corner of the house, even from the bathroom. Watch sunrise from your bedroom and enjoy sunset from living room and deck. Gabriola's iconic sunset (or whale watching) beach is just next door.
    700 sq ft self-contained ocean front house with spectacular view of the beautiful Georgia Strait and coastal mountains. This loft is on its own sunny & bright waterfront property in a peaceful and relaxed settings because it is in upstairs with separate entrance and stairway. Downstairs is our storage. So you have complete, secured privacy from all directions. Beautiful fir hardwood floor, wood walls and ceilings make this home feel warm and cozy. And also high ceilings make this place feel more spacious. Enjoy your peace and relaxing time on the sunny deck overlooking ocean view. Gabriola's most beautiful beach is just next door, perfect for an afternoon swim or post dinner stroll.
    Berry Point area is the most desirable place to live and visit in Gabriola. When you visit here you definitely will understand the reason. Although Gabriola's most famous beach is sitting just next door this neighborhood has a quiet and peaceful setting as we are at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. You can be an excited tourist and a minute later you find yourself tucked away from all of that and enjoy your quiet time. And it is not only one of the most beautiful area in Gabriola but also it's in convenient location. Walking distance to local pub & restaurant, 5 minutes from Twin Beaches Mall and Haven resort and less than 10 minutes from ferry terminal and Gabriola's downtown core for shopping and dining.
  • We had a great stay at Park's place. She is a great host and was very quick to respond to our requests. The place is lovely and quiet, a great get away.

    Thomas2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing place! We got to enjoy the sunrise from bed our bed and walk down to see the sunset. Only steps away from the most beautiful beach on the island! We will definitely be coming back, it surpassed all of our expectations. Thanks Park!

    Emma2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks Park, we had a great time at your place! Your corner of Gabriola Island was a delightful area to stay.

    Dorothy2019-08-23T00:00:00Z

    Lizzie2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great location! A wonderful shoreline walk (on a sandstone shelf) that starts directly from the property. We also were able to cycle around the island and eat tasty food at the nearby Surf Lodge Restaurant (a 10 minute walk). Clean, comfortable, basic accommodation on the second floor of a two-storey building (the ground floor is a storage unit). All the amenities that we needed. Attentive hosts (but not intrusive)... thanks for a great stay! We would stay here again.

    Andrew2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • A very private, rustic cabin, made of cedar next to fruit trees, and a vegetable gardens, with marvellous views out every window, and a short walk to Orlebar Point, for amazing views of Entrance Island lighthouse, and a sunset.

    Randall2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is an amazing place to spend time on Gabriola Island. The Cottage is very quiet and peaceful and the view is absolutely stunning. We even saw whales passing by from our window. Park is a wonderful host who will make you feel very welcome and at home. We enjoyed our stay here very much, so much in fact, that we left after a five-day stay only to come back again for another four days ;)

  • The home is spacious and well appointed with gorgeous views and a wood fireplace. Beds were comfy and the island is fantastic.

Everything was just as described or better and lots of little touches to make it perfect. I would happily return and if kids allowed, book it every time we come down! Great host, great place and an awesome location!

Really appreciated the thoughtful touches to the place to make us feel really welcomed. We were there for New Year’s Eve and when we arrived there were new year’s decorations, gift baskets and complimentary wine all ready for us to ring in the new year! Definitely recommend.

    Marcela2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place is totally awesome. It looked great in photos, but was even more impressive in person. Huge, high ceilings with exposed wood beams. Enormous bedroom. Cozy fireplace. Expansive deck. Waterfront view. I loved everything about it. And William was friendly and quick to respond to all of my correspondence. Access was easy. I highly recommend this place. As long as you know how to start a fire! ;)

  • Renay was a wonderful host. My girlfriend and I enjoyed the breakfast that she made for us. Homemade granola was excellent. The room was modern, clean and had everything we needed. Thank you for being such a great host Renay.

  • Renay's home and hospitality are very high quality. If you are looking for a hotel-level experience combined with the warmth of an Air bnb, this is your place. It is a beautiful house, a delicious breakfast is provided and it's a very short drive to both the town and the ferry. We loved our private and cozy room. Would stay here again!

  • Couldn’t have been a more perfect place for my daughter and I to bike to and travel from all around the island. Amazing accommodations and hosts, will definitely come back 😀🚴‍♀️🎉

    Teresa2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Renay is an amazing host with a gorgeous house. The rooms were absolutely wonderful, the garden and backyard space beautiful, and the breakfast Renay provided was the cherry on top! Highly recommend!

    我的房子就在Haven学院里面,是Havenside。靠近Ferry渡轮,旁边有森林步道,很靠近海边。Haven有健身房、灵性按摩、热水池和很好的配套,如果上Haven课程,或到Gabriola岛旅行是很好的选择。装修很好,家具很新。
  • The house was lovely, peaceful and quiet. Communication was great, check-in went well and it is in a great location.

    Brand new suite with panoramic view of the beautiful Georgia Strait. Surrounded by six pristine acres of private forest. With two regularly perching eagles right out the window, and deer in abundance, you will find serenity here.
    Brand new kitchen, bathroom, beds, paint, hardwood and tile. TV is hooked up to hundreds of movies and TV shows in my Apple Account, Netflix, Crave & Amazon Prime. But what's outside the window always trumps what's on TV. Also there's a big Bluetooth speaker available for hook-up. Super-fast unlimited WiFi. Cell coverage is spotty on the island, but I have a booster that makes things pretty solid, particularly if you are a Telus customer.
    Enjoy a sea fishing charter, forest bathing, hikes, scooter rentals, golf, beaches, and endless sights. At any time, you can expect to see whales, sea lions, seals, humming birds, eagles, owls and deer. This magical island has three wonderful restaurants, three liquor stores, two pubs, and the world’s best coffee house. Plus, the shopping here is surprisingly awesome—Gabriola is home to everything from Canada’s largest selection of Merrell footwear, to fine wines, to the healthiest of health foods, to genuine Aran Island sweaters, in addition to a supermarket that puts those in many cities to shame. And best of all? No traffic lights. So, what are you waiting for? Serenity Now!
  • Serenity now indeed! This place is a dream! Charles is a fantastic host, very accommodating and prompt also very generous! We were very well taken care of by Charles and we were blown away by location and views! The place was super comfortable, very clean and had everything we needed! A+

    The Arbutus Grove B&B (a Gabriola Island Bed and Breakfast ) is a contemporary farmhouse nestled in 10 acres of private, beautiful Gabriola forest with many nature trails. The Arbutus Grove farmhouse was custom built and designed to give maximum privacy and forested views to bed and breakfast guests by dedicating the whole 2nd floor to three spacious bedrooms with en suites and a comfortable common room.
    We are within walking distance to downtown Gabriola. There is a pathway through the forest that comes out by the Farmers Market which is held at the Agi Hall.
  • Renay's b&b was a delight. Quiet and peaceful. Super clean, attractive and comfortable. We'll stay there again.

    Barbara2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay! It's so close to the main part of town (especially if you are on foot and take the shortcut) and the ferry terminal. The suite was super clean and Renay made a great breakfast (and was very accommodating to my food allergies!). I'd definitely recommend this place!

    Natasha2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • It's a nice place! Also Renay is very nice host! I had a great time there because of her. I'd love to go there again.

    多美2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful home located in a quiet private spot. Breakfast was yummy and we enjoyed meeting the other guests. Great communication with our host and she gave us lots of site seeing tips. We had a lovely visit and would stay with Renay again.

    Steffanie2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in the Arbutus room... very clean and spacious. Very close to town, but so nice and. quiet. Renay and her husband were wonderful. Will definitely recommend to friends and family

  • Wonderful cottage just steps from the beach access trail. Very well outfitted kitchen. And just an over all nice vibe about the place.

    Noah2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • It’s a magical place. Don’t tell anyone

    Marco2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a lovely cottage. Basic amenities but in such a serene and spectacular location. A great value and a very special place.

    Sonya2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • We can’t say enough good things about Christine's cottage! It is cozy, yet was more than enough room for my husband and our two kids to have a wonderful weekend. It has all the comforts you could ask in and off the grid cottage and was sparkling clean. The house is located very close to two beach access points and the ocean can be seen from the front porch. Christine was a great host and we will certainly be back!

    Shannon2019-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Christine's place is an awesome getaway. It was the perfect vacation from our home on the Sunshine Coast and our second time visiting her home. We love it and will be back again soon. Thanks again Christine!

    Brett2019-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best features of this little yellow cabin is how bright it is inside with skylights in the bathroom and the kitchen. It has a nice setting in the forest and is located close to beach access. A true little island gem!

    Annelise2018-08-20T00:00:00Z
