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.

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.
