Property Upgrades To Greet You in 2018

The Lazy Bowen Hideaway entry garden ~ work in progress ~ plants soon. 
We've been busy this winter here at Bowen Island Accommodations, getting organized to make our properties even better for 2018. Here are a few of the changes and upgrades in effect and on their way.

Now completed with forest plants perfect for our Waterfront home.


Lazy Bowen Hideaway

We've replaced the entry stairs from the car park. Thanks to Kevan Bernards of Bernard's Homecraft for his beautiful work, allowing for a safer entry for guests.

The stairs are phase one in a revamp of the entryway garden. Locals Su Rickett will complete the landscaping, Jaime Weismiller will be doing the rock work, and Bruce Culver of Seascape will complete the garden watering system. In our continued efforts to conserve water, the watering system Bruce put in is operated by wifi and connected to the weather centre, which means that when it rains it turns the water off, and if it is exceptionally hot it will add a few minutes of watering time.

Look out for their excellent work next spring!

Eastman Waterfront Retreat

The old dock walkway has been replaced, thanks to Norbert Puppe, our reliable all-around handyman. Guests will soon be able to enjoy a 10x10 foot dock as well, a safe and private spot to revel in nature and picnic on. Enjoy views of Hutt Island and the Sunshine Coast, and perhaps spot seals, waterfowl, and maybe even whales from near water level. Stairs go down to a small beach for swimming.

Eastman Waterfront Cottage

Starting in February 2018, guests of the Eastman Waterfront Cottage will be able to enjoy a cozy fire by a brand new wood stove during their October - April stays. As with all other Bowen Island Accommodations properties, we will provide 4 logs per night for your evening fire. You'll feel like you're miles away when you've got your fire roaring in this sweet cabin in the woods.

And another thing, for guests staying seven nights or longer, access will also become available to a new laundry shed next door, for all your laundry needs.

Feel free to contact us if you have questions about any of these or other amenities available during your stay. We look forward to sharing these great upgrades with our 2018 guests!
