The Perfect Getaway

Dear Guests: Based on recommendations of Provincial Health Authority and in discussions with local health officials, we have decided to cancel all bookings in the Cliffhouse and Treehouse until May 1st. 2020. 

We are glad you are interested in visiting Galiano and we would like to welcome you. On the recommendations of the Provincial Health Authority, all Canadians are discouraged from non-essential travel at this time.

Now is the time to stay home and halt all unnecessary in-person interaction. We are a small water access only community with scant resources - including very limited grocery and health care resources. Our community is striving to support and serve the people who live here. Welcoming visitors at this time is unwise. Galiano is a wonderful place to visit.

We hope you recognize now is not the right time to vacation on the island. We look forward to welcoming you to come enjoy and explore Galiano another time.


Come and experience a place where time stands still atop a cliff with grand views and stillness amidst the trees.

Your hosts are Lindsay & Peter Barrett


The Cliffhouse Cottage is a unique handcrafted cottage perched on the edge of a cliff with panoramic ocean views of Trincomali Channel, Salt Spring, and the Ballingall Islets. It is the perfect place for a weekend getaway or enjoy a longer stay and experience a world where time seems to stands still.   The Treehouse is located further back from the Cliffhouse but still offers a breathtaking ocean view. Sit on the cozy deck and take in the sights and sounds of the ocean or relax in the soaker tub for two. In the morning enjoy the luxury of a gourmet breakfast delivered to the cottage.    

Welcome to Galiano Island, where you'll find all the magic of BC's wild west coast on the Gulf Island closest to Vancouver, from ancient forests to rocky ridges, from kayaking, hiking & whale watching to intimate romantic dinners.
