My girlfriend and our dog had a lovely stay at Bluewater Cottage. The moment we arrived a deep feeling of relaxation and enjoyment and love for quite and beautiful nature washed over you. Everything and I do mean everything we need was found at the Cottage (kitchen supplies, flashlights, powerbar for computer, everything save food).
When the weather was rainy (about half the time we were there) we enjoyed watching eagles hunting on the ocean, the beautiful view from the enormous deck and warming up by the fire. When the weather was sunny, we enjoyed hiking to the beach, watching ducks dive as a group of about twenty all at the same time, the eventually stunning, beautiful and long sunset, and the beauty of the stars at night. Gibsons glowed serenely on the horizon each night across the water from the cottage regardless of the weather.
My favorite line from our time there that my girlfriend kept saying again and again was, "Listen to how quiet it is".
Stayed at this Vacation Rental Cottage for 4 nights and could not have been happier! During the booking process and pre-arrival, the Owner was extremely helpful and answered any questions we had promptly. The information they give you before arriving is so helpful! The cottage is about a 15-20 minute drive from the Ferry and very easy to find. The Owners met us when we arrived and quickly gave us the tour. After that, they leave you to your privacy but are located on the property if you needed anything. Their house is far enough away that you feel like you have the entire property to yourself ! The cottage has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen and a large living room with huge windows that face the deck and Ocean. And ohhh...that deck! It is a massive tiered, deck area that has an amazing view! Also included is a Hot Tub on the Deck along with deck chairs and a BBQ. The Hot Tub is completely private and an unobstructed view of the Ocean! So relaxing!! A short stroll on a path from the Cottage takes you down to the Ocean and a nice little Beach. Did I mention along that stroll you pass by your own private Tennis Court? Yes, you read that right, you have your own private Tennis Court! Such fun! The cottage has everything you need for a stay and was very clean. Most important to us, is this Cottage is Pet Friendly so we could bring our small dog with us. She loved the grounds and exploring everyday. What makes this place so great, other than the perfect location and gorgeous Cottage, is the Owners. They truly know what they are doing and what guests would like. We will happily return in the near future for sure! Thank you so much for everything Gail and Allan!
This was our second year booking with Gail and we will definitely return. The cabin is set up beautifully and the view is magnificent. Perfect gateway for all occasions.
Our favourite place on Bowen Island. If you need to relax, get some peace and quiet while enjoying an incredible view, this is the place.
The cottage is in a Great Location, equipped with an awesome deck and hot tub. Every night we watched the beautiful mountain sunsets whilst enjoying a beverage. . . from the hot tub! What else do you need? So good we have already reserved again.
A breath-taking location with amazing, unobstructed views of the ocean, scattered islands, beautiful sunsets, and Nanaimo in the distance. My first reaction as I walked on the deck was "WOW". The view overlooking the ocean is magnificent. The beach is a short 5 minute stroll down a path by a large stream with the sound of rushing water and mini waterfalls. You are overcome with a sense of peace and tranquility walking around the property and the cottage is well equipped, comfortable, and homey. Gail, the owner, is awesome and extremely helpful. This was my first time staying at Bluewater Cottage; I will be back for sure!
Beautiful cabin, excellent accommodation and communication with the owner. Highly recommend this place for relaxation, scenery and hikes. Thank you!!!
