This is a really beautiful property in a beautiful location, perfect for a peaceful getaway. The interior is very nice, with a well-equipped kitchen and a comfortable living area. I easily prepared most of my meals there, which was fun. There is a small fireplace with a door and a fan located underneath it which keeps the blaze going. The deck is also great, and you have a terrific view of Vancouver. Rooms are individually heated, which makes it even more comfortable. The area is very, very quiet. I would highly recommend it to others. Here are a few things I discovered which might be helpful to others: - the cottage is indeed walkable from the ferry, but it's up a fairly sizeable hill, and the road is steep in a couple of places. If you're not in pretty good shape, that walk could get old after a few days (especially when it's raining). Also, there are no sidewalks or street lights, so make sure you have a flashlight after dark (your phone is fine). I didn't mind the walk at all, but if you have substantial luggage, kids, or plan on getting around the island a lot, you may be happier with a car. - the listing says "waterfront", but the cottage is above a cliff, so don't imagine you will easily hike down to the water. The view is spectacular, though, and there are other parts of the island where the shoreline is accessible. - don't be intimidated by all the recycling instructions. It's just separating your trash, and they helpfully provide all the correct bins for you. It was so easy, even this American could do it ;). - bear in mind that whatever supplies you might want to purchase in "town" will have to be gotten up the hill - so if you're doing some elaborate cooking or what have you, you might prefer to have a car to transport your shopping. On the other hand, the daily or twice-daily hike makes good exercise, and it's easy if you're just buying for that day. - the property manager strikes a great balance between being helpful and communicative, and not being intrusive. I found it helpful to give her a little information about who I was and what I was hoping for during my visit, and she actually steered me to this property, which was a great decision. She is experienced and knowledgeable, so I'd recommend taking advantage of her advice.
We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. Morning coffee on the deck with friends with ample chairs to entertain. The kitchen was fully equipped to have family meals around the fireplace. The master bed was comfortable and the shower powerful. The pullout couch was ok for sleeping as well as comfortable for a small group. I walked to snug cove through a steep path and it took 15 minutes. Great location to the Barcelona Tapas and shopping. We would recommend a stay.
Excellent location, beautiful views, easy access to shops and hiking trails. A lovely, clean, comfortable cottage. Not a single complaint or suggestion to make - perfect for a weekend away!
I stayed here with a good friend and we loved our time spent on Bowen Island. This fabulous cottage was exactly what we needed for a few days of rest and relaxation. Everything we needed was available: a great kitchen to cook in, comfortable beds, and plenty of towels. The deck overlooking the waterfront view is spectacular! Unfortunately we had a lot of rainy weather, but when the skies cleared for a bit we were able to enjoy the deck and additional seating further down on the property. This cottage and Bowen Island were a great getaway from the city bustle. I would highly recommend it!
We had a great stay on Bowen Island and loved the house! It’s the perfect layout with everything you need and all the comforts of home. It was just the 2 of us but it would have been a great house for a family of 4 or 5 as well. We only cooked breakfast but had everything we needed in the well equipped kitchen and enjoyed the great restaurants on Bowen for lunch and dinner. The view is amazing and we found ourselves outside as much as possible soaking it all up. Several deer that visited everyday were fun as well!
This was our second stay at Weaver’s cottage; a restful and relaxing retreat from the hustle & bustle of Vancouver. The owners have skillfully retained the rustic charm of this historic property all while providing updated renovations and tasteful contemporary furnishings. Property manager, Jan Stevens and the BIA housekeeping team ensure that guests arrive to pristine and immaculately prepared properties. Jan provides an exceptional level of customer service and goes above and beyond to ensure that stays are care-free and thoroughly enjoyable. We have recommended BIA to many of both friends and family and we look forward to future visits to Weaver’s cottage. Bowen Island is ther perfect antidote to the frenetic pace of city life; an easy 20 minute ferry ride transports you to another world! Kindly, B&J Lougheed
