The comfortable sofa and chair with plush throws are great to cozy up and enjoy the PANORAMIC WATERFRONT VIEWS. You will be impressed with the southwesterly to northwesterly views taking in Howe sound, the Paisley Islands, the Coastal Mountains, and Mt. Garibaldi. The sea life is bountiful and ever changing……..relax, bird watch, be entertained by the seals, meditate, and if you are lucky, you might see a migrating grey or killer whale……..Keep your camera close by.
Guests love the Eastman family history throughout the cottage. The hand-painted furniture by Antonia Larribe Eastman, a prolific artist in the early 1900s, makes this spot one-of-a-kind. The artwork is also Antonia’s…she expressed herself in many different mediums.

About the Owner
I live in New York City and work at the United Nations where I am responsible for environmental programs for developing countries related to biodiversity conservation, climate change adaptation and mitigation, forest protection and sustainable energy. The oceanfront cottage on Bowen Island listed here was passed down to me from my grandparents who bought the property in 1918 and my wife, Joan, and I bought the property next door on the water and built the first 'Platinum' green house on the island in 2009. So we have both a modern house and a vintage cottage to make available here. Since my work and travels prevent me from spending as much time on Bowen as I would like, I am listing them on (website hidden) to make them available to others. Jan Stevens is the manager for both these properties while I am away from Bowen and I will pass on requests for rentals to Jan.
