Spring Beach House

 
Spring Beach House

Sheltered by towering evergreens, this beautiful B&B is a peaceful haven at the end of Spring Beach Drive, with easy access to a secluded pebble beach. Both rooms have a spectacular ocean view. Art's room is serene blue with a king size canopy bed, electric fireplace, TV and DVD, mini fridge, robes and slippers, and a private bathroom. Laura's room is delicate green with a queen size canopy bed, TV and DVD, mini fridge, table and chairs, robes and slippers, and a private bathroom. Both rooms adjoin a guest-only sitting room with books, games and DVDs, as well as a computer with high speed internet access for use by guests. A full breakfast is served upstairs each morning of your stay, either in the dining room, or on the deck (weather permitting). Gabriola Island is known as "The Island of the Arts", and many of our artist studios are open year round. Ancient petroglyphs and marvelous sandstone formations can be found on our magical island. Hiking trails abound, and biking, kayaking, scuba diving, beachcombing and deep sea fishing are activities that are available. Or just snuggle down with a good book, watch the ever changing view, while eagles soar above you. Perhaps our island deer will surprise you with a visit, or the otter family will put on a show. We have it all, and we would love to share it with you.

From Victoria

Take the Island Highway to Nanaimo, follow the signs to downtown Nanaimo and Gabriola Ferry.

From the Mainland

BC Ferries - from Vancouver, either the ferry from Horseshoe Bay to Departure Bay (1 hour and 35 Minutes), or from Tsawwassen to Duke Point (two hours) will get you to Nanaimo. When you get off the ferry, follow signs to downtown Nanaimo, and Gabriola Ferry.

The ferry to Gabriola takes 20 minutes. Upon arrival, stay on South Road. You will pass the RCMP station on your right. From there, it is 8.7 kilometers to a house on your right with huge gates with maple leaves on them. From that point it is exactly 2 kilometers to Price Road, where you will make a right turn. (The United Church is at that corner on your left) Continue on Price Road until you come to a T intersection with Islands View Drive. Turn right again, and drive down the hill, take the first left on Grilse. One short block to Spring Beach Drive, turn left again, and continue to the end of the road. Our driveway is off the cul-de -sac, at 2530 Spring Beach Drive.

For those people wishing to come without a vehicle, there are 3 other ways to travel from Vancouver to Gabriola:

Tofino Air offers flights (float planes) from the South Terminal at Vancouver Airport to Silva Bay on Gabriola. (Check www.tofinoair.ca)

Baxter Air (www.baxterair.com) and Harbour Air (www.harbour-air.com) offer flights from downtown Vancouver to downtown Nanaimo. From there, make your way to the Gabriola Ferry Terminal and walk on the ferry.

Bring your boat and tie up at Silva Bay Marina or Page's Marina.

We will be happy to pick you up at either Silva Bay, Page's Marina or the ferry landing - just let us know when you will be arriving.
