Gambier Island Accommodations

Gambier Island, British Columbia, Canada is the largest of four islands located in Howe Sound. Your vacation rental accommodations in Howe Sound is located between the Lower Mainland and the Sunshine Coast, which incorporates many islands, and clusters of islands, the largest of which are Bowen Island and Gambier Island. Lodging on Gambier Island embraces the stress-laden in green nurturance. From the moment you step onto the British Columbia passenger-ferry at Langdale, you will feel that you have stepped back to another era. An era when people had the time to stop and chat, to ask if you need a ride, to give you directions and in general to wish you well.

Gambier Island is named after Admiral of the Fleet, Lord John James Gambier (1756 - 1833), who was born in the Bahamas while his father John Gambier was Lieutenant Governor of the Bahamas. There are 125 full-time residents. This number swells to around 600 in the summer but as Gambier is larger than Bowen Island your vacations rentals and accommodation will leave you plenty of room to be peaceful and quiet. This British Columbia island is approximately twenty-five square miles. There is no car-ferry access - something most residents want to preserve.

The ocean waters are relatively calm in summer months, providing endless opportunities for boating, kayaking, and fishing steps from your vacation rental accommodations. Ashore, there are beautiful trails for hiking, and mountain biking is popular. There are beaches - great for swimming and kayaking, beautiful trails through the forest where you will see deer and eagles in abundance. All this minutes from your vacations rentals and accommodation.

Gambier is a haven for artists and writers some of whom are full-time residents. Arrangements can be made to visit studios from your vacation rentals. Be assured that your visit to Gambier Island, at any time of the year, will be memorable. There is something to be said for cozying up to a wood fire with a good book or good conversation at your vacation rentals while the wind and rain storm outside. Year-round Gambier Island makes for a terrific laid-back escape from the pressures of the Real World!
