Welcome to 'The Cottage'. Feel at home in this country cottage where you can relax and rejuvenate.
The Cottage is a relaxed, Island home, with room for a family/small group or even a quiet solo visit. The Cottage is close to all things Bowen..a 3 minute drive will get you where you want to go, to the cove (Bowen's town), where you can access great restaurants, shops, and the charm of Bowen's Snug cove, to beautiful beaches, luscious west coast forest trails, art galleries... The Cottage offers a cozy atmosphere, relaxed spaces, 1/2 acre of southern exposed garden, and wood burning stoves.
The house, which started out as a 1920's original cottage, (the house was built around the cottage) has an ocean view, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, large kitchen, and large garden including a small apple orchard, grape vine and a hammock to lay back and relax in the tranquil, quiet offered by this property.
The small Bowen bus that can take you to the cove if you choose to not bring a car to the island, will stop right outside the door when you wave it down and take you to all the restaurants, shops and the ferry, (it's schedule lines up with the ferry schedule)
Interazione con gli ospiti
I am available on an 'as need basis'. I will respect you and your stay in the cottage. If you would like more or less interaction, I am happy to do either.
Altre cose da evidenziare
*Over occupancy/undisclosed occupancy is $100.00 per person.
*If you are renting the Cottage in full, I want you to know that there is a cat that has lived in the house. It will not be there for your stay, but the house has had a cat in it.
I have put the house occupancy as 8 even though the bedding is really suited for 6. I am doing this because on some rare occasions, and extra child etc, i have allowed more than 6 and this gives the opportunity to book that when it is called for.
Be prepared for deer looking for a little handout :)
Respectful of home.
No smoking indoors.
Shoes taken off at front area.
Kitchen counters are butcher block which requires a little extra love.. use cutting boards for chopping, not counters and please wipe up wet area and use wire rack for hot pots to keep the marks away. :)
Wood stove can be used in the winter but summertime there is usually an island ban on fires.
Please be respectful of neighbours, with that in mind, this is a friendly neighbourhood.
I am a long time Bowen resident who loves to share this beautiful island. I love to travel and always enjoy a welcome from locals. I would like to offer the same to my guests, a welcome and an opportunity to take part in the beauty that I and my family have enjoyed on Bowen Island. I am excited to be returning to airbnb after a short stint 4 years ago and a long hiatus, (life)... I look forward to the adventure it will bring.
