This self-contained handcrafted cottage overlooks Newcastle Island Park and anchorage. It is a 10 minute foot passenger ferry ride from Nanaimo and 5 minute walk. The cabin suits a single person or couple wanting a simple and elegant retreat.
Small cabin on my waterfront property on Protection Island. It overlooks Newcastle Island anchorage and is surrounded by arbutus and Douglas-fir trees and meadow. The cabin has a simple kitchen and bathroom, sleeping loft and sitting room. There is a double bed upstairs and a sofa which can be made up as a second bed. If one has mobility issues, the ladder to the loft maybe a limiting factor.
Kayaking opportunities (depending on experience)
Interaction with guests
I enjoy meeting and chatting with guests but mostly I understand that guests appreciate privacy once they have settled in.
Other things to note
Dinghy Dock Marine Pub and Restaurant (URL HIDDEN) is a unique experience and is lots of fun with pretty great beer and food. I will stock the fridge for breakfast. There are lots of walking, cycling and beach exploration opportunities on Protection and Newcastle Island.
Respectfulness is appreciated.
No candles in the cabin
My place is dog friendly and as there is extra cleaning associated with a dog, please let me know if you have a pet and I expect an extra $10/ night (payable when you arrive).
Pets are not allowed on the furniture!

I am friendly and adventuresome. I have travelled widely around the world but always love to come back to my home on the Salish Sea. Gardening, sharing good food with friends, watercolour painting, mountains, sea- kayaking and working to conserve wild places and nature are essentials of a good life.
