Island Idyll

Nestled into a stand of mature Douglas fir trees on a south facing slope and a five minute walk to the sea, this 1450 sq ft home on 2/3 of an acre is ideally situated to explore the beauty and charm of the Southern Gulf Islands. It is bright, cosy and very quiet, but for the sounds of a multitude of birds and the occasional sea lion. The home is fully fitted with all the comforts one needs, and the established private garden of fruit trees. flowers and vegetables is a gem and gives one and all a very real sense of well-being. All in all, a very sweet spot in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
