Bellavista Galiano is a log cabin lovingly restored, renovated and expanded to become the perfect place to rest and enjoy nature in all her glory. You can hike, bike, kayak, boat and bond whilst staying here! This 680 square foot retreat has two bedrooms, each with comfortable queen bed. Three piece bath has a walk in glass shower.
The main living area is expansive and open, new furniture for lounging near a wood burning cast iron stove. There is satellite TV. A large dining area overlooks the ocean. A well equipped kitchen meets the needs of the gourmet cook. Bring your groceries, because it's a 20-30 minute drive for supplies.
Surrounding the cabin is 500 square feet of decking with a gas barbecue, outdoor dining areas and lounge furniture. This is the prime spot to enjoy 7 lush acres of west coast woodland with an unobstructed panorama of the ocean and neighbouring islands. Put your feet up, pull out a good book, and soak up the sun.The property is wooded, parts of which feature old cedar trees up to 14 feet in diameter. Gorgeous firs, maples, hemlock, arbutus and others abound. However, two acres around the cabin are cleared with open area for games and viewing. There is a wide open space for kids of all ages to play.
Outdoor activities abound. You are within walking distance of several trails leading to the ocean or biking distance to spectacular Dionisio Provincial Park. The Island features a multitude of trails, beaches, lakes and spectacular views, most within walking distance. A 3 day minimum stay applies, extending to 5 days, June through September. No smoking and no pets, please.
