Very Private cute 450 square foot 1 bedroom cottage with covered patio backing on a park, surrounded by trees and in a beautiful, natural, Gulf Island setting. Has a full kitchen, bathroom, washer/dryer and sitting/living area. Comes with a covered private parking spot.
“This space was phenomenal, and I can see why Carmen is a superhost. The cabin was everything we expected and more — beautiful, cozy, and nestled in wilderness. Carmen went above and beyond in answering our questions in a timely manner, giving us directions and tips, and offering us a few extras when we forgot beach towels. If we could give 6 stars we would. Thank you for such a pleasant trip - we’ll be back in a heartbeat.”
Custom built home tucked in the woods with all the privacy one could ask for. Large deck and yard for relaxing and enjoying the local wildlife. We are centrally located and offer easy access to all that Gabriola has to offer. In the winter, enjoy a quiet getaway with a wood fire burning stove and a two person Jacuzzi tub.
“If you are looking for a delightful, quiet getaway, then this is definitely the spot. It is tucked away from town and everyone, but close enough to all the amenities the island offers. We loved this bright and open house in the middle of the forest , with trails literally off the backyard! Our dog loved the fenced backyard. The kitchen is super well stocked with every utensil you’ll need, and stuffed with spices, tea, and other basic kitcheny things. We loved having a fire place to gather around, it made it super cozy. The beds were comfy, the master suite upstairs is bedroom goals!! We never got around to using the jacuzzi as we were out hiking but it looks gorgeous and we hope to try it again next time. It sleeps 6 in 3 private rooms but there are additional mattresses for larger groups when privacy is less of a concern! We 100% recommend!”

“There's not enough superlatives to describe this space or the host. The cabin was spotless, beautifully designed, and very private. We loved cooking here, the beds were comfy, and the yard was large enough for many great family games of frisbee. Ian truly is a Super Host, as kind as he is efficient! He left very detailed instructions, there was everything we could need to cook with in the kitchen, and he was prompt to address questions we had, and even to offer understanding and support when our son's car broke down, had to go to the shop, and we were possibly looking at a late check out. Gabriola is a special community: We loved the beaches, Elder Cedar Nature Reserve, and Malaspina Galleries. Plus the people are warm and welcoming. If you have automotive trouble, Gabriola Automotive is the best! If we ever return to Vancouver Island, we'll go back to the island and Ian's place in a heartbeat!”
