Hearth and Harbour guest house: Gorgeous views of the mountains and sea from this newly renovated, professionally decorated, bright and spacious house on very private half acre only minutes to Bowen's best beaches. Use of paddle boards included!

The space
The main space is a bright, open concept kitchen/dining/living area with a cozy wood stove for chilly nights and huge windows with a wide open ocean and mountain view (there is also central heat with thermostats). There is a bathroom and two bedrooms with queen beds on the main floor, with a cute open loft with another queen bed and skylights up a flight of stairs/ladder. On the garden level, you'll find a separate suite with bathroom and kitchenette with a full queen true mattress sofa bed (no springs or seams), as well as the separate bungalow which is a huge room with queen bed and sofa/chaise for lounging. Everything has its own heat and all the beds have down duvets to create a warm oasis in the forest.

Outside the main space, there is seating for dining on a covered deck and a gas BBQ. On the lawn there are also spots to enjoy the view - oversized lounge chairs and a covered gazebo with a cozy fire table. Downstairs there is another deck and fire table. A family of tame deer often visit the lawn to add to the rainforest ambience.

Guest access
Guests have access to the main level of the house, the garden suite and the bungalow, as well as use of the outdoor areas: dining and seating deck off the open concept space, the lawn with gazebo lounge, and the downstairs deck.

No access to laundry room, office, or storage. Note there is no washer or dryer for guest use.

Other things to note
The guest house is an ideal spot for rest and relaxation - it is private and quiet, surrounded by trees. However, it is also in a residential neighbourhood and is NOT suitable for parties or loud socializing, especially in outdoor areas. ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING ANYWHERE ON THE PROPERTY OR LOUD PARTIES.

This property is home to very tame deer, squirrels and birds. The deer especially like to browse the micro-clover lawn, and it's amazing to watch them gently munching away through the kitchen window. Their tameness makes them vulnerable, so please treat them with kindness and respect. Please remember these are wild animals - do not approach or feed them.
