BRAND NEW and just a short (flat!) walk from the ferry in Snug Cove, the Palm Retreat Suite has everything you need for your island escape. Walk to shops, cafe's, galleries, restaurants, beaches (Pebbly Beach is just 5 minutes on foot), and trail network access points. Your experienced hostess can provide tips for cycling, walks, hikes, beaches and more, and she efforts to make your stay exceptional. High design and peaceful, but close to everything!

The space
The Palm Retreat Suite is perfect for an individual or couple seeking peace, beauty, and convenience. It is centrally located in Deep Bay, a small and quiet neighbourhood right in Snug Cove. Drive here in less than 5 minutes right off the ferry, or walk via a short cut in less than 10 minutes via a beautiful trail with ocean and views of the North Shore's beautiful Coastal mountains. The suite has been newly painted and all of the furniture, bedding, and amenities are brand new and selected with care. It is walking distance from all that the village of Snug Cove has to offer—restaurants, coffee shops, galleries, shops, a regular (General Store) and organic (Ruddy Potato) grocery store, and more. We are also a 5 minute walk from a great local beach (Pebbly Beach) that gets sun all day and late into the afternoon, as well as a vast network of hiking trails. You could absolutely leave your car behind, but if you decide to bring it with you, you will have a dedicated parking space at the house, or street parking on the quiet and safe neighbourhood street.

Enter the suite via a private staircase up to French Doors that open to the bedroom. It has a king bed, nightstands with lamps, a low console table with local maps and information, a large Smart TV (login for access to Netflix, Prime, Disney, and a host of other streaming services). You will also find a small kitchenette equipped with a Nespresso coffee machine, mini fridge/freezer, toaster, toaster oven, kettle, dinnerware, cutting boards, cups, mugs, and wineglasses. We provide a selection of coffee pods and black and herbal teas, sugar, and honey. There is ample storage to hang and store clothing. The spacious en suite bathroom has a shower/tub combo and excellent water pressure.

I also manage a neighbouring suite on Lenora Rd., about a 2 minute walk. Feel free to inquire if you would like more space for travelling companions. If the two listings are available, you could book both. The main house may also be available on occasion (separate listing to come soon—.please inquire).

We welcome your furry companion (we love animals) as long as they can stay off the furniture (please bring a bed or blanket for them?). We ask also that you bring along a towel to clean their paws if they are entering from outside (all of ours are white!). Please add your pet to the reservation as we charge a one time $30 pet cleaning fee.

Where you’ll be

Bowen Island, British Columbia, Canada


The house is located on Melmore Road in Bowen Island's "Deep Bay" neighbourhood. Deep Bay is family friendly, quiet, and most importantly—centrally located. We think of it as the flatland of Bowen. It's the only neighbourhood you don't have to walk or drive up a hill to access! The streets are quiet and pretty. There is a local beach called Pebbly Beach that has sun late into the evening, and it's not uncommon to see locals there with beach fires in the off season when the fire ban has been lifted. We are also blessed with access to the trailheads of Crippen Park, Dorman Point, Mt Gardner, and more. Expect the neighbourhood vibe to be quiet, and we would love our guests to be respectful of this.
