Rain-Lily Cottage is serene getaway on beautiful Galiano island located just a few minutes walk from the Sturdies Bay ferry terminal - no need to bring your vehicle. A retreat from the busy life, your cottage by the forest is just a short walk to local beaches, and right by all the amenities that Galiano has to offer. It has sleeping room for 4, features one bedroom, kitchen, large bathroom, sofa bed in the living area and covered deck with a barbecue for enjoying the outdoors, rain or shine.
Your private cottage is on the same property as our main house. There is one bedroom with a queen bed and a view into the woods, a large bathroom with a full bath, a small open-plan kitchen with an oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, toaster oven and coffee maker, dining table with room for 4 and a sofa-bed in the living area.

Guests have access to the full outdoor area of the property, and are also welcome to the fruit on the trees if you are here at the right time of year - we have fig, apple and plum trees on the property, as well as blackberries. You also have your own private deck.
If you choose to bring a car to the island, one parking spot is available on the property.
Other things to note
The cottage does not have a washer or dryer, however there is a laundromat just a one minute walk from the cottage.
There is a shortage of water on Galiano, so please be aware of your water usage.
No smoking and no pets please.
There is no garbage pick-up on Galiano. We will take care of your recycling and compost, but please take your garbage off the island with you. If this is not possible, we can charge a $10 fee per bag to dispose of your garbage for you.
From Jun 29 - Sep 4, 2018 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
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.
I grew up in BC, spent many years travelling and living in other parts of the world, and have now moved back to Galiano Island - surely one of the most beautiful places on earth!
