About the neighbourhood
Private, serene, with spectacular views and great swimming beach and private tennis court. The town site is where you get off the ferry in Snug Cove. All shops and restaurants are in this area. A 9 hole golf course and restaurant/clubhouse is about 15 minutes drive from the cottage.
Getting around
The best way to see the sites is if you have a car so that you can explore the various areas of the island but it is not necessary. Many of our guests bus to the cottage. Trans-link bus as well as taxi service are also available. Trans-link stops about 1 block from the cottage and operates during rush hour and also has a special summer schedule. A passenger water taxi service runs at night from Horseshoe Bay to Snug Cove. As well there is a water taxi service from downtown Vancouver. There are various trails for hiking, biking plus you can also rent kayaks or scooters in Snug Cove.
Car advised
How to get there
Vancouver International Airport is 1 hour away. Horseshoe Bay is where the ferry terminal is to catch the ferry to Bowen Island. If you are not driving you can take trans-link bus service that stops about 400 yards from the cottage. There is also taxi service available. Mopeds are also available for rental in Snug Cove by the ferry terminal.
A car is not needed but having one will give you the freedom of exploring all of the various areas of the island.
