Dear Guest,

We are grateful that you have chosen our home for your getaway. Digitally agreeing to the below terms allows us to confirm or deny your booking. Once we confirm or deny your booking you will receive a confirmation with a receipt of payment.


The main party named on the payment terms is responsible for informing the entire group of the house rules. Please take the time to inform the other guests of the rental guidelines / house rules.

Violation of this policy will result in immediate eviction without compensation and complete retention of your security deposit. Only guests listed by you at time of booking may stay at or visit the property.

Please be aware that we have exterior security cameras at the Lazy Bowen Hideaway and Lazy B Waterfront Suite to protect the property.

Maximum occupancy at any time is 8 guests.

Adults, children and babies are all part of the guest count. With the exception of infants that are not yet walking, we do charge for all guests, including children. Unlike hotel rooms, we have many nooks and crannies, glass, and objects that require deep cleaning like a real home. Our house keepers do an excellent job of cleaning after each turnover and this takes additional time with additional guests. In addition, all guests use bedding, water, towels, and other amenities.

Check-in is as early as 3:00 pm (please no early check-in)
Check-out is as late as 11:00 am (please no late check-out)

STORM POLICY / ROAD CONDITIONS / FERRY CANCELLATIONS No refunds will be given for snow, storms, road conditions, or ferry cancellations.

REQUIRED Vehicle make / model _______________________________
2WD PARKING LOCATION
Angle park along Eagle Cliff Road 1 bush past Cleator Road. DO NOT PARK in front of the mail boxes.

AWD or 4WD PARKING LOCATION
may drive down Cleator Road and park on the Lazy Bowen Hideaway property. Driving directions to arrive in your emailed Welcome Guide.

AWD OR 4WD VEHICLE IS REQUIRED TO DRIVE DOWN CLEATOR ROAD TO THE COTTAGE

Navigation down to the cottage requires a 4-wheel or All-wheel drive vehicle. A medium size 4-wheel drive vehicle such as a Ford Explorer or smaller is recommended. If your vehicle is a full size truck or larger I would suggest parking at the top of the road unless you are experienced at making tight turns in your vehicle. I recommend walking down the road first before attempting the drive.

CLEATOR ROAD / OUR DRIVEWAY IS:
~ a loose gravel road
~ with 3 tight turns
~ steep in spots
~ will be damaged by anything other than a 4-wheel or all-wheel drive vehicle.
~ confidence is required

A minimum fine of $500 plus the cost of road repairs will be assessed to those that ignore this requirement.

See the separate mailing of Cleator Road driving instructions for more detailed driving tips. Please call me if you have any questions about navigating Cleator Road. It is the challenge of the road that maintains the privacy of the Lazy Bowen Hideaway.

I UNDERSTAND THAT DRIVING A 2WD VEHICLE DOWN CLEATOR ROAD IS A MINIMUM $500 FINE PLUS ROAD REPAIRS.

2WD vehicles must park at the top of Cleator Road along Eagle Cliff Road and take the 5-minute walk down to the cottage. If arriving after dark we recommend you bring a flashlight to light your way as you walk down Cleator Road.

PROPERTY DISCLOSURE
The Property is medium-high bank waterfront property. The cliff / water side of the property is not fenced. Parental supervision is required if Children choose to play on the cliff / water side of the Property. If the Guest chooses to allow their children to play on the cliff / water side of the Property the Guest(s) do so at their own risk and accept all responsibility for any injuries that might occur.

LIABILITY
As a condition of the rental, the Guest agrees that the rental and use of the Property is entirely at the Guest's own risk including, as applicable, the use of stair access to the yard and decks, and the Guest agrees to hold harmless Jan Stevens from and against any and all claims, actions or damages arising from the use of the Property on account of Personal injury or property damage sustained by the Guest and its invitees as a result of any cause arising out of this Agreement.

CABIN ENTRY
The entry access code (Hideaway) and lock box location (Lazy B Waterfront Suite) will be defined in your Welcome Guide. Before leaving Please place the Suite key on the kitchen island. Upon leaving turn the lock and pull the door closed behind you. Hideaway: Turn the thumb knob horizontal and the door will lock behind you.

KEYS
If the keys are not returned at the end of the rental period, then if deemed necessary for the safety of future Guests, locks will be changed and the fee shall be assessed in the amount of $150.00 to cover the costs of changing locks and new keys. This fee will be charged against the Authorized Security Deposit.

NO SHOES INDOORS PLEASE
When entering the cottage please remove your shoes. It helps to protect the floors and reduces the noise transferred between the suites. We recommend packing indoor shoes such as Flip Flops, Crocks, or slippers, they are perfect for the wood floors. X______

EXTREME FIRE HAZARD WARNING
No outdoor fires of any kind: no beach fires, no bonfires, no burning on or off of our property.

May through September 30: No fires in the fireplace. The leaves and needle debris on the roof are too dry to safely light a fire in the fireplace during this time.

October - April: Fires in the fireplace are allowed assuming there has been a good rainfall. We supply a limited amount of firewood (4 logs) for your evening fires, while supplies last.

IMPORTANT NOTE: do not gather and use wet wood or driftwood in the fireplace or wood stove. This creates an unsafe chimney and risks a flue fire. You are welcome to bring along dried seasoned wood.

NON SMOKING PROPERTY
The Lazy Bowen Hideaway / Lazy B Waterfront Suite is a non-smoking property. When smoking outdoors off of the property use extreme caution. Always use a fire proof container to dispose of ashes and cigarettes. NEVER FLICK ASHES OR CIGARETTE BUTTS INTO THE BUSHES OR ONTO THE TRAIL.

Water Conservation & Septic System Guidelines
This remote old cottage uses a septic system for grey water and sewage disposal that is just above the beach. It is essential to keep the water flow into the septic tank to a minimum. The guidelines are as follows:

~ Please dispose of coffee grounds in the trashcan --do not dump coffee grounds down the sink.
~ Do not pour fats and oils down the drain. They can build up and clog the septic tank pipes.
~ Do use non-chlorine, biodegradable and non-toxic cleaning products.
~ Put paper towels, tissue, cigarette butts, disposable diapers, sanitary napkins, tampons and other material in the trash can, not the toilet.
~ Do not overload the septic system. Early morning and bedtime are peak water use times in the bathroom. Stagger your use times.
~ Short showers and shallow baths are appreciated.
~ When using the restroom share the flush. If it is Yellow let it mellow. If it is brown flush it down.
~ Do not use bleach or other anti-bacterial cleansers. If you must use bleach please toss the bleach water out onto the trail.
PLEASE CONSERVE WATER for the Islands sake
~ When washing dishes please be aware of water conservation and minimizing water flow to the septic. Please keep the water stream to a trickle.
~ The dishtowels are in the lowest drawer just to the left of the sink.

We supply Toilet Tissue and Paper Towels Hideaway-Additional paper towels and toilet tissue can be found in the vacuum closet. Lazy B Waterfront Suite: additional toilet paper can be found in the bathroom cabinet. Paper towels are under the kitchen sink.

ORGANIC WASTE, RECYCLING, AND TRASH IS MANDATORY
We realize that the trash regulations are detailed. If you feel you cannot comply feel free to bag all of your trash and remove it from Bowen in your own vehicle.

The separation of organic waste, non organic trash and recyclables is required by the Bowen Island Municipality. Guests are required to follow the guidelines below:

ORGANIC WASTE: We provide an organics pail to separate your organic trash (see photo to the right). It can be found under the kitchen sink. When the compost pail is full please empty it into the Black trash can with the ORGANICS Permit in the Lazy Bowen Hideaway parking area.

When full, tie off your trash bag and place in the NAVY blue trash can with the NON-Organics permit located in our Hideaway parking area.

I understand that the ORGANIC WASTE, RECYCLING, AND TRASH rules stated above must be followed and if not followed will pay a minimum of $50 for housekeeping to separate and re-sort.

Bathroom Supplies
We supply towels, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and hair dryers.

Food supplies
The kitchens are supplied with the basics such as salt, pepper, various other spices, cooking oil, tea, a bit of flour, mustard, ketchup, mayo and sugar. You will need to stock the fridge and cupboards for your complete meals. Help yourself to whatever is stored in the refrigerator. Please check the pull dates.

Kitchen Stove
Please refer to the AEG manual kept in the drawer to the left.
Hideaway Convection Oven If you are not familiar with cooking using convection here are some tips:
1) Reduce the temperature 25 degrees and cook the same length of time as a normal oven setting. OR
2) Use your normal oven setting and reduce your cooking time by 25% - check for doneness.

With the price of power we are hoping to reduce our power bill with our new convection oven.

Kitchen pots, pans, and dishware
Before you leave please make sure all Petite Suite dishes, glasses, flatware, pots & pans are returned to the Petite Suite cupboards as well as the reverse. X_____

Furniture
We want you to make yourself comfortable. If you rearrange the furniture and lamps to your liking please do so with care. Lift them up off of the wood floors so not to damage the floors.

A fabulous way to ring in the New Year -- from the coziness of this beautiful hideaway. Fireplace crackling. Watching the view change with the weather. Tracking the ferries. Beautiful family meals in a great kitchen. Robust walks. and a lovely little town nearby. The driveway is not for the faint hearted -- so Jan's insistence about needing 4WD is good advice. Jan takes great care of this wonderful spot and ensures it is kept up to provide a comfortable stay for her guests. Would love to come back to experience the place in a different season.

Sandy User Profile

Jan supplied us with all the information we could possibly need to make our stay hassle free. Accommodation and location superb but do remember you must have a 4WD car as the drive is steep. I rented both properties for myself and friends which worked really well. Thank you Jan and hopefully will return.

Spent a long weekend with my family at the Lazy Bowen. First day we got there, we knew it was going to be a memorable stay. The waterfront views were amazing. We loved the wraparound decks, the floor-to-ceiling windows, the large kitchen, and that the house was close to the beach. Jan's place also had board games, puzzles, novels to read, DVDs you can watch, a BBQ grill, even a telescope, and a lot more things to help you enjoy your stay. If it wasn't raining the first night we got there, some of us probably would have stayed outside on the deck all night. Wish we could have stayed longer in this hideaway. :)

Great cabin, good view, good town. Can't go wrong. Very nice people. We recommend this as a nice quiet vacation spot. Keep in mind, if you have a decent amount of people, the ferry will be expensive for back and fourths to Vancouver.
Jan User Profile
Response from Jan:
Ryan, thank you for being great guests. On your next trip over you might consider buying the Experience Card as it will reduce your ferry rate by 40%. You can purchase it at the ticket kiosk and the card doesn't expire. The good news is that the price of the ferry ticket for Bowen includes your round trip.

Hi there, I am a dual citizen, Canadian and US, living the majority of my time in sunny Henderson, Nevada. For over 39 years I have been designing interiors for hundreds of clients in the southern Nevada, California and as far east as Massachusetts. We love spending about 3 months out of the year on Bowen Island whether upgrading, maintaining, deep cleaning, or relaxing we feel as though we have the best of both worlds.

I love offering our home to Bowen guests and providing the best of comforts and amenities. We value all feedback from our guests and use critiques to perfect our property. Who is better than our guests to suggest details that would make their stay even better. After 10 years our goal is still the illusive high bar of "perfection."
