Gabriola Island is part of the Snuneymuxw First Nation territory. Otter Cottage is located on a quiet, secluded property just steps from a beautiful beach that shows evidence of an ancient Snuneymuxw shell midden. Take your morning coffee to the beach or stroll around neighbouring Drumbeg Park and beyond; an abundance of flora and fauna, stunning sandstone beaches and views, woodland walks and lovely swimming spots await. Perfect for a quiet get-away or a family holiday any time of the year.

The cottage is a bright, cozy, one bedroom, one bathroom space. The bedroom has a queen bed and the living room has a pull out couch that sleeps two. The kitchen is equipped with an electric stove top, convection toaster oven and toaster. Tea and locally roasted coffee are provided. The cottage is next to the main house where we live but is completely self-contained in a large, fenced in garden.

Gabriola Island offers the best of both worlds with both the tranquility of nature and a vibrant community at your fingertips. There are numerous beach walks and forest trails for hiking or biking. Artists welcome visitors to their studios and several venues regularly feature local and visiting musicians. Summer festivals are aplenty and the weekend markets are bustling with local fare. There are several options for dining out, from casual to fine dining.

Located in Snuneymux Territory, this is a lovely, updated cottage with gracious, accommodating hosts. We found it very clean and comfortable. It had everything needed for our two week stay including reliable, speedy WiFi to get some work done. It is a quick walk to a wonderful sandstone beach next to Drumbeg Provincial Park. We walked the park practically everyday. For birders, the park in the fall when we visited had an amazing assemblage of species that hung out on the points at low tide. The views too are spectacular. Mt Garibaldi and Mt Baker are both visible from the park. We brought our sea kayaks and launched from the beach for easy paddles to the Flat Top Islands and played in the tidal rips in Gabriola Passage. We had such a good time, we plan to return in the spring.

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. We really appreciate you taking the time to write a review; many thanks, and we look forward to seeing you in the spring!

My husband and I spent a lovely week in Otter Cottage. Louise and Nelson were extremely gracious hosts. The cottage has everything you need for a pleasant self catered stay. The beach is just a couple of minutes walk from the cottage, through their lovely garden onto the public access path to the beach. The "beach" is not sandy but when the tide is out or even when it's coming in there is plenty of flattish space to set up your chairs or lie out on a towel on the big flat rock areas and get plenty of sun. We really enjoyed the quiet and tranquility of the place as it is well away from the busy end of the Island. Whether you want to ride your bike around the island or go hiking in the nearby park, pick blackberries or visit some of the interesting sites, staying away from the busy areas is quite easy to do. We would recommend reserving for the ferry to and from Nanaimo though, as it can be quite busy especially on the weekend. We hope to return again to this tranquil spot.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review, Stacey. It was a pleasure meeting you and Bob; you were wonderful guests and we hope to see you again soon.

Louise and Nelson's cottage is an ideal place to stay on Gabriola Island. This little home was spotlessly clean upon arrival and is very carefully appointed with everything you need including good coffee, fresh smelling linens, good books and a very comfortable living room to cozy up in at night. A short walk around the side of their home brings you to the lovely sandstone shoreline which is just on the border of the gorgeous Drumbeg Park. We walked along the shore several times, stopping to swim one warm day on our way home. We did tonnes of cycling and walking around the island, bought fresh eggs and produce, and read for hours by the little pond behind the cabin. This was a magical few days and I will be returning soon with my mother for her 80th birthday. A relaxing, spacious cottage with very thoughtful hosts.
