This is a great place to stay, just a stone's throw away from the Ferry Terminal. The place affords you a quiet, private stay in a cottage. There is a full-fledged kitchen, a comfy couch, and a super nice bed. The bathroom is large and very nice. There is a nice barbeque on the patio at the back which we used and enjoyed. Susie is super-fast with all of her communication and is very clear. It was a pleasure staying here for the Thanksgiving long weekend.

This was my first time booking through Airbnb and Susie made it such an easy, friendly and excellent experience overall! Super responsive and genuinely helpful! Her place was clean, bright and restful - just what we needed to get away from the city for a few nights to celebrate my husband's 40th with our two kids and baby. Our favourite things were: proximity to groceries, coffee, baked goods and books (very short walk with the kids in toe), great parking option, the beautiful patio off suite where we saw deer (mom and two babies) both during the day and the evening, beautiful lush green yard with space for the kids to run and do cart-wheels and play frisbee, the BBQ, great shower and bathtub. We also liked hiking to the top of Mount Galiano. This was a bit long for our 6yr old, but the rest of us loved it. Amazing views. We also enjoyed the Humming Bird Pub, the beautiful white shell beach and Pilgrimme. Overall an awesome place to visit and we'd love to come back!

Interaction with guests

You can have as much or as little interaction with us as you like! We have a house on the same property, and are more than happy to help with recommendations for the island. If you would like to chat, or need assistance, we will either be on the property or can be contacted via phone call or text. Otherwise, the cottage itself is very private, so we will only be available if you want us to be.
