Whalerock Cabin

Galiano Island, British Columbia, Canada
Natural Immersion: An Architect-Designed Cabin in the Woods

This serene waterfront retreat focuses its attention on what’s beyond its walls, a natural world alive with whales, seals, lapping waves, colorful birds and quiet forest. Wide windows frame the shimmering water of the Salish Sea, backed by jagged mountain peaks, and fronted by shores of tufted grass. The shoreline spreads just beyond the doorstep providing opportunities for beach combing among the tafoni rock formations, while indoors the home offers all the thoughtfulness and comforts of an architect-designed residence.

WhaleRock Cabin - Galiano Island, British Columbia, Canada | cabin rentals | cabin rentals

Created by an architect, this cabin for rent in British Columbia was designed to draw your attention outwards. Beyond its windows, sliding glass doors, and skylights, a mesmerizing natural world awaits. The windowed island retreat offers an easygoing, modern cabin feeling, with an open-plan common room that incorporates the living room, dining room and fully-equipped kitchen into a single space, plus two bedrooms, one with a king bed, the other equipped with two singles.​

The home’s light-filled common room features walls of windows and smooth wood floors, plus a cozy wood burning stove. Furnishings are easygoing and comfortable, with minimal decorative accents to distract from the expansive views. Bedrooms are of a similar design, comfortably appointed yet casual, with wide windows sills drawing your attention to the natural beauty outdoors. Two full baths also feature windows framing the views, and the kitchen windows capture the lights of distant Vancouver by night. A spacious covered patio extends outward toward the sea, offering a great place to wildlife watch, work, or dine.

Wildlife visitors include deer, eagles, songbirds, and orcas, plus dolphins, sea otters and humpbacks. A sandstone beach is located a few steps from the cabin’s door, and a beach access path leads to the waterfront where swimming and splashing can be done at high tide in a cove just around the corner.


AROUND

This cabin for rent in British California is located on the Eastern shore of Galiano Island, along the Georgia strait, home to orcas, humpback whales, seals and sea otters. Set just above the water’s edge, the property features a sandstone beach and nearby tidal pools as well as stands of raggedy coastal pines where deer, birds and chipmunks frolic. Bald eagles can be sighted soaring over the island’s inlets, and Galiano Island is a 50-minute ferry ride from Tsawwassen across the Salish Sea.

The property is also a short drive to conveniences including the ferry terminal, farmers' market, restaurants and cafes.
