Are you in need of a quiet location for your sabbatical? Are you an author needing a writer’s retreat?

For rent, November 1st, 2023 through February 29th, 2024, a custom built, 2700 sq ft, three bedroom character home. Located on 1/3 of an acre, this home is a five minute walk from the beach at Maude Bay on beautiful Mayne Island, BC. Mayne Island is one and one half hours by ferry from Vancouver and an hour by ferry from Victoria. The home is a  five minute drive to shopping, and features 2000 sq ft of decks, a 365 sq ft south facing balcony, towering fir trees, and mature gardens. On the main floor you’ll enjoy an 1,100 sq ft great room which includes a bright kitchen with large windows, copper countertops, custom made fir cabinets (finished with wood from trees which were harvested on the property), a spacious sitting room furnished with antique and retro furniture, and a dining room featuring a hand crafted cedar dining table (again, made from a tree which grew here) which seats 10. The kitchen is separated from the great room by a 9’ copper top breakfast bar. Also on the main floor you’ll find a kitchen pantry, a spacious four piece bath, the master bedroom with an exterior door to the large back deck, and a laundry room. There are two sets of stairs leading from the main floor. One takes you up to a semi-circular 26 foot diameter mezzanine level hung over the great room, which is furnished for yoga and a comfy corner for cuddling and tv. Double doors lead out to the balcony which sports a dining table for those occasional warm and sunny winter days. The other set of stairs leads to the upstairs bedrooms, each featuring a private balcony, and which are separated by a Jack and Jill 3 piece bathroom. One of these bedrooms is furnish with a double bed, the other a single. The house is heated with a wood stove (firewood provided) and a heat pump (utilities included in the monthly rental). The home is tastefully furnished which, for the right renter, includes a Knabe baby grand piano. It also comes with a pair of bicycles and, to the right renter, the use of a 2015 Ford F150 which seats six (in case you come from afar and would prefer to fly) is available at an extra cost.

This beautiful home in an idyllic location is available at $3,000 per month.
