Gardenbeach Cottage is a cozy two-bedroom cabin set on low bank

beachfront property and surrounded by shrubs, evergreens and arbutus

trees. Expansive view out across Ballenas Channel and Georgia

Strait to the Bellenas Islands, the Gulf Islands, and the British

famous 'Long Beach') on the west coast of Vancouver

Island - for surfing, storm watching, whale watching, and

spectacular sightseeing.

launch, fishing guides, kayaking and boat rentals)

* One kilometer (about half a mile) to the Beachcomber Marina

* Five kilometers (3 miles) to Fairwinds 18-hole golf course and

driving range (fine dining)

* Ten kilometers (6.5 miles) to the Red Gap Market grocery store and

other small shops

Nearest towns:

* 25 kilometers (15 miles) to QUALICUM BEACH

* 25 kilometers (15 miles) to NANAIMO

Guest Comments:

“Your cabin is a wonderful secluded site to enjoy nature .. watching

the sea and her inhabitants was enthralling. Eagles showed

themselves often, as well as gulls, crows, seals and otters playing

on the rocks. At supper last night two (of the many!) deer waltzed

past the dining room window.”

“We lacked for nothing. Thank you for all your thoughtful details

and the cozy cottage feel. Our dog loved retrieving his toy in the

sea and often commented on how great the view was.”

"..peaceful, quiet, great view and excellent decks..a good area for

walks, and a very convenient place from which to visit other areas

of interest on Vancouver Island…..a perfect holiday enjoyed by all,

including our little dog."
