Book your honeymoon now!

This lovely, stylish house is situated on 2.7 acres of high, east-facing waterfront property with a magnificent view of the mountains and islands of Desolation Sound. Located on the south point of Cortes Island, it is close to Hollyhock and Manson's Landing, with its grocery store and café.

Perimeter trees provide complete privacy with plenty of sunny areas, a lawn, and garden. A trail leads down a fairly steep embankment, through a grove of large fir trees to a beautiful beach below, where there are clams and oysters for the picking. There is also a sandy beach nearby.

This small (about 1000 sq ft) custom-built house is completely charming, and is ideal for a romantic getaway or a quiet retreat.

As you journey here to this wilderness coast of B.C., by road and ferry or seaplane, you will begin to relax as you enter a world of clear ocean waters, stunning vistas and....quiet.

My custom-built cedar home sits on nearly three acres overlooking the waters of Georgia Strait and the snow-capped peaks of the West Coast. It is set among stands of fir, alder and maples, it is private yet sunlit....

There are two bedrooms, each with their own bathroom (one with shower and one with bathtub). Hardwood floors of Russian birch are used throughout the open plan living room, dining and kitchen area. The feeling is one of casual comfort with style.

You may want to wake early to view the sunrise over the mountaintops or catch a glimpse of the deer. Or you may wish to sleep in and let the warmth of sunlight on your face wake you.

Your day, in this romantic setting , may begin with breakfast on the deck followed by a stroll down the woodsy trail to the beach below to gather clams and oysters for lunch. Your outdoor adventures could included swimming, kayaking, beachcombing, hiking, sailing. Or perhaps you simply enjoy an afternoon of power lounging and solitude.

A memorable way to end the day: bathe by moonlight in the leopard-painted, antique tub.
