About this listing
ESCAPE THE CITY AND IMMERSE YOURSELF IN THE SIMPLE PLEASURES OF THIS OCEANFRONT CABIN WITH CHARACTER.
Lots of charm in this sweet cozy cabin nestled between the woods and the water. Get reconnected with nature, exploring the miles of soft sand stone shoreline and the tide pools or walking the country roads.
Fall asleep to the sound of the ocean, and wake up to the sunrise over the straight of Georgia, with Mount Baker Views. Whether it’s reading a book by the fire, soaking up the sun or enjoying a game of bacci ball on the huge lawn, the ocean is right there. Napping in the hammock is also a favorite past time.
The cabin's interior has lovingly evolved over time, with an eclectic mix ensuring a mood of an era gone by. There's an open floor plan for living, dining and cooking. The master bedroom (queen) has double doors to a small deck as well as a lovely window seat. The loft sleeps 2-4, perfect for guests or kids, and there's a double pull-out sofa in the living room. The Cabin can sleep 8 (but more comfortably, 2-4).
A large oceanfront deck spans the width of the cabin. Dine outdoors on a large picnic table logged from the property that seats 12. Indoor dining seats 4-6.

This is just one of those incredible places. After 4 days we didn't want to leave. Everything in the house is cozy & also very comfortable. Galiano Island in itself is lovely and this is probably one of the best locations on the island. The seashore access is very special. Our kids loved playing in the garden and at the seashore. The whole place is very private. The big windows make the views from inside the place really amazing. We had no real life contact with anyone, but the communication & check in went smoothly.
This is such a find that we will return again and again. The ocean front, the big yard, the cozy cabin, the luxurious bathroom, the comfy beds - checks all my boxes... and our dog Sadie's. Thanks Julie for sharing your piece of paradise and offering a dog-friendly option to those of us who can't imagine leaving them behind.
We got married on Galiano and spent the week of our wedding at Two Aker Wood. It was absolutely wonderful. We made it our home for a week and we really didn't want to leave. We especially liked how seamless and easy it was to enter and exit the place independently. The cabin has everything one would need and is decorated very well. We loved the perfect balance of charming cabin furnishings while being completely updated and clean.
We hope to return for many anniversaries in the future! Thanks for sharing your lovely space!
We loved the place and the area! It was really cozy and nice. Would love to book again. Thank you!
This is one of the most beautiful places we've been! A nice and cozy house with stunning views and a wonderful atmosphere.
The email contact to our host was friendly, some things would have been easier if there would have been a personal contact.
We hope to come back one day!
The photos perfectly capture the cozy feel of this special cabin overlooking the Strait. It has a unique perspective of West Van in the distant, Deltaport and Tsawassen to the east. Talk about priceless views and sunsets. Forget about television for a week (but expect very reliable wifi) and soak up Gulf Island sea-life in front of the cabin. It was great having lots of clean towels, a full-size fridge and kitchen utensils. And Joel's directions and welcome package emailed before our arrival was appreciated.
