Waterfront cottage with kitchen and patio
Situated in spectacular Whaler Bay a quick 5 minute walk from the Sturdies Bay Ferry Terminal and all amenities - A calm serene bay with stunning views down the bay and beyond, perfect for swimming, paddle boarding and launching your kayaks or canoes. View our resident kingfisher perched on his pole, otters playfully frolicking stirring the glass-like water, watch for 'Sammy' the seal who comes round in the evening to check things out and watch the herons skillfully fish for their dinner. Galiano is also the perfect spot to see the many pods of whales that travel through our waters in the summer time.

We are available for rent year–round. So cozy–up to the wood burning fire and enjoy a good book in the winter or sit out on the deck with a refreshment on those hot summer days.

Recently redecorated bright open–space living & dining area with a cozy fireplace. Fully furnished 2 bedroom cottage, 1 queen and 2 double beds, and 1 full bath. Our fully supplied kitchen comes stored with dishes, cookware and appliances so you don't need to worry. The fireplace is a cozy accessory for those crisp winter days and fall evenings. The large 300 sq. ft. deck is the perfect place to relax on the deck chairs and enjoy the beautiful sunsets and views of spectacular Whaler Bay. There's also a propane barbecue so you can grill up your summer faves.

Enjoy the bounty of Provincial Parks, spectacular views, and wildlife every where you go and breathe that fresh island air. The natural beauty of Galiano Island invites relaxation, exploration and excitement.

Indulge in a bottle of wine and perhaps head down to Montague Harbour and pick up a fresh catch of local seafood the island has to offer.

5/5 Excellent

This property is better than advertised! The location, interior space and amenities exceeded our expectations. Galiano is a wonderful island with many great hikes and even more shoreline access points. Mount Galiano is a must. Thank you for sharing your property.

5/5 Excellent

Great stay!
This place is amazing! Such a cute house, tons of room, and fully stocked with all amenities. Loved reading by the fire and looking out at the bay. Within walking distance to everything and super private. Will definitely be going back again!

5/5 Excellent

Family getaway
Great property for the 4 of us with close proximity to Studies Bay amenities. The property was clean and comfortable and the host’s directions and communication made it very accessible. The wood burning fireplace was nice as the nights were getting cooler; the large deck as great for relaxing in the afternoon sun. Would definitely return in the future. Don
