Welcome to Beautiful Whaling Station Bay

Sandy Beachfront Haven is a 3-bedroom cedar panabode (log cabin) built in 1974. The panabode is located on the waterfront of Whaling Station Bay, with its wonderful sandy beach, warm swimming waters and stunning sandstone walks. The tidal pools teem with anemones and other sea creatures. The incomparable Helliwell park is just a short walk up the road. The beach side of the property is wild: filled with salal and cedars. The side where you enter the property has a beautiful garden designed over 30 years by the host’s mother, filled with hydrangeas, roses and other perennials.

Two bedrooms have queen beds, and the third bedroom has bunkbeds suitable for children or for 1 adult on the lower bunk. The kitchen is equipped with microwave, fridge, stove, coffeemaker, kettle, blender, all utensils and much more. The spacious living room now has two luxurious couches, books for reading and a huge burl coffee table, while the front room with dining table overlooks the bay. There’s a BBQ on the porch and outdoor tables and chairs available for al fresco meals. Heating is electric. We have 2 bicycles here for you to ride on island trails. Electric heating.
