DO YOU HAVE ACTIVE YOUNG CHILDREN?
If yes, the Lazy Bowen Hideaway may not be the best choice for your family. Although, we have two options for you:
Option #1) Rent the Whole House. This way, you will have the freedom for the kids to make all the noise they want. We highly recommend renting the Whole House so everyone can enjoy their stay.
Option #2) Contain your children so they do not make excessive footfall noise by running, jumping, tapping, bouncing balls, etc., across the floor. These noises sound like a drum and will disturb the Lazy B Waterfront Suite guests in the lower rental.
LARGE LIVING ROOM WITH SPECTACULAR VIEWS
The SPACIOUS LIVING ROOM, 27 x 27, has three separate sitting areas: Watch the High Definition 55" Smart TV with Cable connection, Relax and Read in one of our Comfort Zones, or Gaze out the Expansive Windows to view Eagles or Ferries going by.
WOOD BURNING FIREPLACE INSERT
October through April, we supply our guests with complimentary evening fire for each night's stay. (While our wood supply lasts).
Would you like to keep the fire going all day long? Guests are welcome to bring along additional dry seasoned wood for all-day burning.
NO Wood burning May through September.

About the Owner
Jan Stevens was born to Canadian parents and raised in Seattle, Washington making her a dual Canadian / American citizen. While living in Washington State, she studied art and Interior Design at the University of Washington. In 1982 she moved to Henderson, Nevada, where she designed one-of-a-kind interiors for hundreds of clients. Over 27 years ago, when her son was an infant, she established Jan Stevens Design and began her successful design business while working out of her house and being a "Mom" at the same time. Jan has designed stylish, comfortable, and gorgeous interiors for over 39 years and has retired from the interior design profession. However, her natural talent continues to benefit her vacation home improvements. Jan's creativity and organizational skills have led her to other entrepreneurial endeavors such as fundraising, graphic design, writing, and photography, as well as managing the Lazy Bowen Hideaway as a vacation rental. Over the last 18 years, following her passion for Bowen's natural beauty, Jan began photographing the island's sunsets, landscapes, and flora; the photographs were gifts to friends and neighbors as calendars and note cards. With the encouragement of a good friend, Jan recently signed, framed, and displayed some of her best work at the Lazy Bowen Hideaway and Lazy B Waterfront Suite. While Jan's permanent residence is in Henderson, Nevada, Jan stays on Bowen Island for 3-4 months of the year. The goal soon is to spend equal time between the sunny Southwest and the temperate rainforest of Bowen Island; this would be the best of both worlds.
