This is a rustic house across the road from a beach accessed by a steep trail. A bit of a view of the ocean through the trees. Main floor has a bedroom and sitting room with bed couch, bathroom with cast iron tub. Upstairs accessed indoors by a ladder or by exterior stairs. Upstairs there is an open area living room and dining area and full modern kitchen with granite counters. Also a bathroom with shower.. Living room has bed couch and there is a sleeping loft with king size mattress, accessible by ladder. No flush toilet, just outhouse. Hardwood floors, lots of windows, feels like a treehouse. Great beach for long walks across the road, oysters and clams. Good places to explore with kayak and canoe. Many trails for nature walks nearby, pristine swimming lake. Many yoga classes, NIA dance, massage, alternate healers, medical clinic, gym, and musical events on island. Many artists, potters, organic farmers. October is usually sunny here. We have a huge organic vegetable garden to eat from and a small studio for art projects. An ideal retreat to rest, relax, get moving, get healthy and/or pursue artistic or writing initiatives. There is a store, post office, liquor store, café, bistro, gym, community hall, and school on the island and lots to do if you are inclined. Our place is a 15 minute bike ride or 5 minute drive from village centre. From Vancouver, Denman Island is a two hour ferry to Vancouver Island then 1 hour drive (bus link) north to Buckley Bay, and then another 20 minute ferry.
We also have a studio garden suite in a house in Vancouver that sleeps two and possibly children on mats on floor. Also somewhat rustic and rural feeling garden, although only 15 minute drive or 20 minutes by bus to downtown. Close to UBC, Museum of Anthropology, beaches, trendy Kitsilano shopping area, and walking trails in Pacific Spirit Park. Beautiful treed neighbourhood, on cycling route. Public pool a few blocks away.
