One of the last original, two-bedroom heritage cottages on Bowen Island, nestled on a peaceful, private quarter-acre property overlooking Howe Sound. Built in 1930, this cedar-shingled home has been lovingly restored and features unique, hand-picked decor, and an outdoor bathtub with an ocean view.

Conveniently located within a 5-minute drive from Snug Cove, the heart of Bowen Island. Come experience this quiet little oasis just off the beaten path.

The space
The space is open, airy and full of natural light, and designed with custom furniture handmade by the owner and unique decor from local craftspeople and creators. Thoughtfully-appointed with all the amenities you need for a comfortable and restorative stay.

With abundant natural surroundings, south facing for maximum daytime sun, situated off the beaten track, you can enjoy a scenic meal from the outdoor deck and watch the sailboats and ferries pass by in total privacy.

Where you’ll be

Bowen Island, British Columbia, Canada

Mermaid's Rest is located on a quiet cul-de-sac in Miller's Landing, one of the oldest neighbourhoods on Bowen Island. It is walking distance to stunning beaches and forest trails, and a short drive (5 mins) or walk (20 mins) to Snug Cove - the heart of our island community.

We ask all guests to respect the peaceful, family-oriented nature of this area, and observe quiet hours between 10pm - 7am.
