The log house not only has its own private 15 forested acres, it is adjacent to Mathews Point Regional Park (with trail access to Beach below) and Bluff Park, both of which offer miles of hiking trails and numerous spectacular view points. Very comfortable 2-storey artisan log home with the master bedroom (queen bed), 4-piece bathroom and a TV/sitting room upstairs. The master bedroom and TV/sitting room each feature walk-outs to view balconies. The ground level features the front living/dining room flowing to the main deck via a set of French doors. The living room has a wonderful Tulikivi soapstone fireplace that radiates warmth. Firewood is provided. The country kitchen is well equipped and the adjacent 2-piece powder room also contains laundry facilities. The smaller second bedroom (queen bed) is also on the ground floor. The owners reside a short distance away and are also available much of the time via telephone and email to answer questions and make recommendations. It's paradise - a completely private cliff-top log home accessed via a 1/2 kilometer long driveway through the forest while being at the south end of Galiano in very close proximity to island amenities. Car, cycling and hiking are the best ways to get around Galiano Island. The closest store for provisions is 3 kilometres (Sturdies Bay garage).

      The SpaceWhy would you come to an island and stay anywhere BUT by the sea? David and I travel a lot and we can assure you that you won't find a more stunningly beautiful place in all the world! Even in the winter it's seascape is awesome. We still just stop and stare out the window at the ever changing vista of the water and sky. Eagles, seals, otters and deer often are staring right back at us! I think you will feel peaceful here. Where else can you step down to a private beach and open a bottle of wine undisturbed? You may notice prayer flags, earth colours, mosaics, details of local stones/driftwood, Buddhas and the like. Simplicity. Guest AccessPlease enjoy our beach, stroll up the yard to pick an organic apple, or sit with a drink on the beach. You have the bottom floor to yourselves, as David and I are upstairs. There is not a full kitchen. There is a little fridge, microwave and tea/coffee area, a sitting room and studio/CST therapy space. One visitor really wanted a BBQ, so we have one now for guest's use. Yeah! Point of note... we don't have garbage collection on island. So, please plan to pack away any meaty wrappers etc. Much obliged ;-) We have 2 single kayaks & jackets for rent. Perfect to explore the coastline and observe from a very different perspective. Both for 1/2 day rental $60, one 1/2 day $30. (Basically morning or afternoon rental time slots, but if no one else wants to reserve them that day, you can continue to use them as long as you wish). We had 2 rooms available, but as of July 15th all future bookings for the seaview room previously known as, " B Tranquil Here by the Sea", will now only be for the entire floor, " The Ultimate". If you booked before July 15, and you didn't opt to reserve the full floor at the time, you may get a chance to meet other airbnb travelers, as then all downstairs facilities would be shared. If you want to use 2 bedrooms, either for bringing along more family members or another couple, the back bedroom, known as "A Tranquil Spot by the Sea", may be added for an additional fee per person. If there were even more than that which can be accommodated by the 2 bedrooms and their respective queen beds, I can set up extra sleeping spaces for those that wouldn't mind a foam on the studio/sitting room floor. There is also a little cabin on the hill that we let guests swap to stay in, if they are hankering after total privacy. The view is spectacular and there is a woodsy trail to the best outhouse in BC! Haha. Brand new: it smells like cedar and it has a tiled floor! I teach yoga and if you are staying when classes are running (usually a couple of times a week outdoors in the summer), you are welcome to join in for free! This 2016 season I plan to teach Tues/Thurs @ 9:30 am, Outside weather permitting, under the big tree. If it is cold or wet outside, we can squeeze into the downstairs studio/sitting room space. I have extra yoga mats. If you don't want to join in, you could always stay in bed. :-) I will be running a Ginalini Yoga and 'Soul Expression Dance Journey' at the Pender Island Hall 6 Sunday mornings this summer. You are welcome to join classes there as well. Try searching, "Ginalini yoga" for more info about me and/or classes. Interaction with GuestsI will be here to greet you and answer any questions you may have about the property and the island. David and I will be around if you need us, otherwise you are invited to cocoon with a good book, your computer or head off on an adventure. There is coffee, teas, dishes, microwave, a little fridge and a outdoor BBQ for your use. There is the one bathroom sink downstairs, so I have a place for you to deposit your used dishes and I replace them with clean ones as needed. There isn't a limit on how many days you can stay here. But, I would recommend between 2 to 4 nights. Over 5 nights you have usually exhausted the local restaurant scene ;-) and run out of ideas for in home easy small meals. You will find a welcome snack vs a full breakfast or kitchen. Instead, you may be out and about enjoying the yummy bakery, the farmer's market, the local restaurants, marinas or picnicking in nature. During the summer in particular, most visitors have a busy schedule, as many travel here to attend weddings etc. The longer days and warmth, tend to draw everyone into nature all the more! Aside. Each guest has their own unique way of enjoying the space. We endeavor to take our cues from you! Some like to have a natter and "pick our brains", others are more apt to commune in silence with nature, or stare dreamily into their significant other's eyes ;-) The NeighborhoodOur area is the historic Hope Bay. You are right beside a working organic farm and near several other beach accesses and view point mountain/hill trails. We are steps from the Hope Bay dock and its restaurant, art gallery, real estate office, jewellers, hair salon, studio etc. I love to be pampered at nearby White Tara's; an intimate and unique home retreat. perfect for an aroma therapy massage. I also am a therapist ...though I doubt you will want counselling here in paradise, but you may opt for an in-house craniosacral or reflexology treatment? In the summer I usually teach yoga under the big tree outside overlooking the water. Wellness opportunities abound! Most common activities which draw people to Pender Island are peace/nature watching, boating/kayaking, weddings/photography, walking/hiking, events/galleries, concerts/markets, golf/disc golf and cycling. I wonder what yours will be? Getting AroundMost people access Pender Islands by BC Ferries from either Vancouver or Vancouver Island. You may also take ferries from Seattle or Port Angeles in the USA that can coordinate with our local ferry system. We've had private boats pull up and anchor in our Bay and row to our beach. Or buoy up at Hope Bay, about 200 yards away. Some choose to fly directly from downtown Vancouver with Harbour Air via float plane to Poet's Cove on South Pender Island. It is also possible to fly from Seattle on Kenmore Air. Or you can fly from the south terminal of Vancouver Airport on Sea Air to Port Washington, quite close by. ( Flying in is a memorable and enjoyable experience I totally recommend!). We are locally serviced by Pender Island Cab Company. There is ample parking at our home and if you have an electric car, we have a L2 charger. (There are several charging stations around the island to explore!) There is no public transit, but you can try "car stops", the official hitch-hiking alternative. It is a relatively short cycle from the ferry to us and to our "downtown", but be aware the roads are hilly and narrow! I find those aspects more challenging than the distances. There are MANY trails and beach access pathways throughout both North and South Pender Island loved by those who walk. I can't guarantee it, but when I'm available and heading out with our electric car, I don't mind giving guests a lift on my way. I was considering adding a Ginalini Uber service, but Uber is not yet available in BC. If you want to book a specific pick-up early or late at the ferry, or require a longer journey, this diver gratefully accepts tips. ;-) Other Things to NoteAirbnb blocks websites, but you can try typing in "Pender Hall", you will be brought to a page showing all the activities booked there. It is a cool building with totems carved outside and it is also within walking distance of our place. Try googling "Pender Island events", and you will see listings of many local events held all over North and South Pender Islands, from walking group meeting places and farmer's markets to music concerts and art showings. Sea Star winery is now active and featuring a variety of events too. The islands in general are "alternative", as such, we are diversity friendly. Also, we deeply value our unique and precious environment. We have a good well and a technically advanced water system... but please conserve. This is the first year our pond has suspiciously very low water. We don't know if this is due to yearly rain fall, a shift in the natural springs, or a new well perhaps drilled further up the mountain. We recycle and compost here exclusively, so expect to find labelled bins. ;-) If you create any huge amount of trash/meat wrappers etc. please plan to pack it with you if you are able. We are on a septic system, so only 1s, 2s and toilet paper can be flushed. Cheers.

The NeighborhoodMayne Island is one of BC's beautiful Southern Gulf Islands. From the Vancouver lower Mainland ferry terminal it is a 65 minute direct ferry trip and from Victoria it is 50 minutes. The ferry travels through some of the most gorgeous marine views Canada has to offer. Truly a West Coast experience! You can reach us by float plane from either destination in 20 minutes. Although the cottage is tucked away from all signs of traffic, there are grocery stores, a bakery, pub, gift stores and the Summer Farmer's Market all conveniently within 2 km. Beaches Although many believe Seal Beach is the best beach on Mayne (with almost exclusive access to 1800' of sandy waterfront), there are other beaches you may want to explore. Bennett Bay Beach, Campbell Bay, Dinner Bay, and Piggott Bay Beach are popular spots and tend to have the warmest water. Most beaches are dog-friendly but please remember to pick up after your pets. Japanese Gardens Our magnificent Japanese Gardens at Dinner Bay Park on former Japanese-owned land, honours pre World War II residents and their tremendous contribution to island life. If you happen to be visiting during the Christmas season it is beautifully lit with thousands of lights. Admission by donation. There is a playground and lovely beach adjacent to the gardens. Hiking There are many wonderful hiking trails on Mayne Island often with amazing vistas. The cottage provides the Hiking Trail brochure. Farmer’s Market The Mayne Island Farmers' Market is the place to get great local produce, fantastic food and works of arts and crafts. The Market has also become the central meeting place for residents and visitors to enjoy a leisurely Saturday, engaging in great conversation and from time to time listening to a variety of live musicians. It is located by the Agricultural Hall in Miners Bay. The Farmer’s Market operates every Saturday from the May long weekend through to Thanksgiving weekendHours: 10 am to 1 pm Shopping Miner's Bay is where you will find the main village and shopping area.

        The SpaceWelcome to Mayne Island, part of the beautiful Gulf Islands in the Salish Sea off the southern coast of British Columbia. Situated halfway between Vancouver and Victoria, Mayne Island is easily accessible by ferry (1- 1.5 hours) and offers the amenities of a small town while also providing a wonderful respite from city life. I love this cabin and lived in it for 4 years while building my cob house. You will be pleasantly surprised by how private and well stocked it is (e.g. olive oil, balsamic vinegar). Most people say it is so comfortable, they feel right at home and many guests return over and over. Guest AccessWhat’s here at the cabin… -Wood stove and firewood -Electric baseboard heating -Comfortable queen size bed with down duvet -Extra duvet, blankets and pillows plus bed linens and towels -Wireless internet -Stove/oven, fridge, microwave, toaster -Dishes, cutlery, pots & pans, kettles -Automatic coffee maker, French press & teapot -Hot air popcorn maker -Cable TV -DVD player, video machine, stereo, portable radio, clock radio -CDs, DVDs and videos – many titles and genres to choose from -Books, board games, puzzles and playing cards -Some kitchen staples, e.g. herbs, spices, flour, baking soda, etc. -The tap water is well-regulated and safe for all uses. Bring bottled water if you prefer that or buy it here on Mayne -Propane BBQ -2 medium size adult bicycles usually available for guest use -Nice outdoor hot tub with glass roof -Hammock, clothes drying rack, deck table and chairs, outdoor loungers -If you’re staying more than a week, the use of my washer/dryer -Large fenced yard for doggy safety What you need to bring to your gulf-island get-away... Your food & drink (or buy it here) Your clothing and toiletries That book you’ve been wanting to read And of course, your desire to relax… Interaction with GuestsI always respect my guests privacy during their gulf-island retreat, and also enjoy a garden chat from time to time. I keep busy in my home and on the island, and am sometimes off-island visiting my daughters (but always make an effort to greet guests upon arrival). The NeighborhoodThe cabin is located in the Bennett Bay area of Mayne Island. There is a wonderful beach which is part of the Gulf Islands National Park and is the launch area for Bennett Bay Kayaking (kayak and paddle board rentals). The beach is sandy in some areas and rocky in others, making it great for swimming, sunbathing, building sandcastles and exploring the large rocks and tide pools or simply walking. You may see otters, seals, sea lions, whales, sea stars, eagles and herons, just to name a few. Mayne has numerous amenities including: 3 grocery stores, bakery, 2 liquor stores, book store, restaurants, pub, gift stores, health centre, library, yoga studio, spa, community centre, museum, church, recycling depot, thrift store, health food store, vet, kayak, sup, bike and scooter rentals, water taxi, boat tours and charters, tennis court, playgrounds, post office, gas station. The latest grocery option is Farm Gate featuring locally grown and/or organic foods and a great deli. There are also artists & studios, music concerts, a farmer’s market and fresh fish sold off the boat in summer, organic farms with roadside sales, beautiful Japanese gardens, parks, hiking trails, etc. etc, etc. Getting AroundIf coming from Vancouver and bringing a motorized vehicle it is strongly advised to make a reservation, especially in summers and on Canadian long weekends. There is no charge to make a vehicle reservation, but if you do not keep it BC Ferries will charge you $25. To find the schedule and/or make a reservation go to the BC Ferries website, Southern Gulf Islands. The ferry to and from Victoria does not allow any reservations but does run more frequently. For Vancouver ferry walk-on passengers or people with bicycles reservations are available, but getting there early is almost always sufficient. There is a volunteer-run community bus on Mayne - the schedule is on the Mayne Island Chamber of Commerce website. There are also 25 car-stops around the island where you can wait for a free ride. You won't have to wait long for someone to give you a lift. Other Things to NotePlease note: minimum stay on Canadian long weekends is 3 nights and in June to August it is 4 nights. The hot tub is privately located and extra large towels are provided for your use. The tub has dual pressure jets for either relaxing or massaging mode. They can also be turned off for silent enjoyment. The glass roof makes the tub a pleasure to use no matter what the weather. Two Basset Hounds live in a cob house on the property. There is a bank of trees separating the two houses creating privacy for both. From cheeky hummingbirds to majestic eagles; from tide-pool creatures to tremendous orcas; as well as wild flowers and trees of many kinds, there is so much for nature lovers to see on Mayne.
