The Sands of Morning Beach Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #7 of 11 Galiano Island B&B and Inns
Reviewed 7 September 2013

My wife and I, our daughter and grandkids enjoyed ourselves immensely. The B&B is very well located on a quiet, sandy bay with lots of rocks and tidal pools to explore and sea otters and herons and eagles, as well as spectacular sunrises. The rooms are attractive and spacious with comfortable beds, and the dining room has a panoramic outlook on the bay. The breakfasts are lovely and you can barbecue outside for lunch and dinner. The island has lots of places to explore and we spent our days at Montague Park and checking out the various small stores on the island. Great bookstore and Pizzeria near the Ferry Terminal! It's almost unbelievably tranquil and serene and really just a small ferry ride from the mainland. This is a great spot for a mini vacation away from the hustle and bustle.

Stayed: September 2013, travelled with family

My 12-year-old daughter, Sylvie, and I took a 10-day cycle tour of the Gulf Islands, and Galiano provided our favorite cycling, our favorite swimming, our favorite beaches. We enjoyed our time at the Sands of Morning Beach B&B so much that the second night we didn't even go out to dinner, just got picnic food at the fabulous market nearby for a picnic and an evening swim on the beach.

We were blessed by the comfortable beds, spacious room, beautiful artwork (especially several really lovely mid-century landscapes) and fabulous hospitality, from our host, our host dogs, and host birds--especially "shrimper" the friendly, beach-inclined cowbird. A delicious breakfast, full of fresh fruit, prepared us for Galiano's delicious hills, and our ride out to Dionisio Point Provincial Park was the best cycling of the entire trip.

I so look forward to coming back to Sands of Morning with my husband, and sharing morning coffee on the beach again with Howie the Jack Russell and Shrimper the Cowbird.

Never before have we been asked to top up the bird feeders while staying somewhere - however it was well worth it. We were surrounded by beautiful finches and hummingbirds on a weekend away with another family. This property is spectacular - while a little old and used - it was clean, welcoming and well supplied for our get-away. Looking right out to the beach, we stayed mostly on site enjoying the property and exploring the beach. If considering a break to Galiano - I would highly recommend this place.

Lovely property in a stunning location. Wake up to the sunrise on the water. Walk steps to the sandy, warm beach. Hosts Michael and Liz are so warm and welcoming and cook a killer breakfast outside overlooking the sea. We have been many times and brought others because it is like a slice of heaven on earth.

This B&B has been recommended by some friends of us coming from Galiano Island. It is perfectly situated just a few steps down to an amazing beach. We welt like being in a Walt Disney movie: bald eagles, geese, minks, otters, seals, squirrels ....

The landlords are very nice people, delicious breakfast being served, beautiful rooms ... if we knew before how amazing this place was we would have stayed longer than four nights.

We will definitely come back here again.
