About this property

Serendipity by the Sea

Adults-only cabin in Galiano
Serendipity is located on beautiful Galiano Island...It is situated on Whaler Bay, and is nestled amongst the forest and wildlife...It is a well kept 50's pan-abode log cabin, on the water with a beautiful view...Deer, racoons, otters and eagles regularily frolick through-out the property. Quiet, serene, and comfortable, this little beauty sleeps two in the main cabin, but also has a guest cabin which sleeps two as well.....( this is an additional 50 pr. night, but can be negotiated for long term rentals). It is walking distance from the main ferry terminal as well as the local shops and the Madrona which is a world class spa. Because the water is collected from rain water and has been treated, there is bottled water provided for drinking. The tap water is used for dishes and showers. Please limit your showers to a min. in the summer as Galiano is one of the driest gulf islands and water must be brought in by truck to the its not a problem in the winter, because of the rain. There is no garbage pickup on the island so please take your garbage back with you. There is a compost to use for food scraps to help condense the waste. Serendipity is a wonderful quaint and peaceful cabin that I know, you will enjoy and feel relaxed by the time you check out. Thankyou so much for considering Serendipity Deborra Pictures of birds and wildlife have been taken by Susan Robertshaw. Sue is an established nature photographer who has stayed at the cabin taking pictures and given me permission to use her photo's.

    Lovely cabin

    Serendipity is a peaceful, comfortable and fully loaded cabin right on the water. The view is spectacular! It is decorated very tastefully and Deborra took the time to communicate all the little details and left us nice touches like chocolate, fresh flowers and a note. We will come again.

    5/5 Excellent

      Absolutely lovely!

      Magical place. Cozy cottage with view of the water. Walking distance to book shop, bakery, restaurants. If you stay here treat this place with TLC and it will reward you.

      5/5 Excellent

        Lovely cottage, fully equipped and generously stocked!

        Cozy cottage, perched atop a small bluff overlooking Whaler Bay. Kitchen equipped with everything you could need., and generously stocked with spices and other necessities. Deborra generously left us treats, too! She was readily available to answer any questions we had. Comfy bed. Launching the canoe is a bit of a challenge, but paddling along the bay was very enjoyable, as was sitting on the deck star-gazing.

        5/5 Excellent

          First visit to Galiano

          Well appointed and on the sea, close to the ferry and stores. A wonderful place to relax, go whale-watching (yes, we saw orcas) and investigating tidal pools. Enjoyed taking the canoe around the bay. Thanks for a great 4-day stay.

          5/5 Excellent
