"Our family enjoyed a wonderful weekend get-away at this beautiful waterfront home on Galiano Island. The weather was glorious, the view from the property amazing, and we especially enjoyed watching the many otters, seals, bald eagles and herons. An amble along the rocks and water's edge was a pleasurable way to explore and have a leg-stretch. The cottage itself is perfect, well-planned with huge windows giving spectacular views of the ocean and beyond, and the owners have thought of everything that might be needed. It's an easy walk from a restaurant if you feel like eating out, or provide for yourself in the well-equipped kitchen. We would certainly recommend the Anchorage to anyone wanting a relaxing and peaceful stay on this Gulf Island, and we hope to return some day in the future."
"We stayed here 10 years ago and still rave about it. Book, you'll find out."

"Guy & I have stayed in many cabins & B&B’s in the Gulf Islands & Sunshine Coast and let me tell you that The Anchorage was fabulous!!! Extremely clean, all the comforts of home, cosey bed, fantastic view and lovely private backyard ;))) We lucked out with the weather Sept. 5-10’11 sunny every day, a bit windy at times but perfect for hiking in the morning and our hardest chore in the afternoons was repositioning the lounge chairs to stay in the sun for our relaxing reads. We took our own small propane Bbq as we didn’t want to deal / briquettes – only Bbq’d one night as we ended up going out for a 2:00ish lunch ... good burger/fries @ the Hummingbird Pub and tried the Marina Grill but too many wasps to really enjoy our point 5 lunch. We’re delighted with late evening visits from deer and laughed at the ‘vocals’ from the sea lions, sea otters were so cute but was somewhat disappointed to miss the whales. Would rate this beautiful home (not really a cabin) as a 9 as we couldn’t go swimming in the ocean right out front of the house (would be nice if they had a small walk out wharf) and would have been a 10 if there was a hot tub in the back yard. Great communication from the owner’s and will definitely book again. Thanks so much to Christine & Thomas for sharing their beautiful home. Was surprised to see Carol & Mel had their place up for sale, didn’t easily run into them so am hoping they are both OK. Take care & sending JOY your way, Margo & Guy"

"We spent a few days here in late May and were delighted to find the property to be even more comfortable and relaxing than expected. An oceanfront home with a great summer cottage vibe. Well equipped, super clean, comfortable, spacious and private. The property is very well maintained and obviously loved and cared for by the owners. An excellent and easy getaway from the city. Thanks C&T for the visit, we certainly hope to come back!"

"Two of the most wonderful vacation weeks we have experienced. Upon arrival we were most impressed with the:- - extreme cleanliness of the home. - magnificent view, which took our breath away, - everything was supplied that we could ever need, - the owners (brief conversation) conveyed the feeling that they wanted us to have a great two weeks. - there were no clocks in living room, suggesting that this was a place to forget the busyness of the world across the water and relax. We have no hesitation in recommending this well appointed home and its beautiful location for your consideration. Two grateful and very relaxed vacationers"
"Looking at pictures and reading descriptions of vacation rentals over the internet can make one very sceptical. We figured if what we saw was 75% accurate, we would enjoy ourselves. Well, we were shocked! What we found was a beautiful and cozy home that had everything you would need for a short stay on this island. A fully equiped kitchen, nice furnishing, wood burning stove with plenty of wood, plenty of towels and toiletteries. Above all, the views were spectacular. It was everything we had wanted and went beyond our expectations. I would say that the only thing it was lacking was a propane BBQ, just a simple old fashioned type, which would require us to bring charcoal/lighting fluid, which we are too lazy these days to do, but they had fully disclosed that information ahead of time. This lovely place would be perfect for a small family or simply for a couple, like us. The value was outstanding and I would love to return to this perfect home."
