Bowen Island Accommodations

Welcome to the luscious green Bowen Island where serenity, wildlife, culture, ecological discoveries and astonishing mountain and ocean views will entice visitors to repeat stays on this 52sq km/20 sq mi greenery-blessed haven. For centuries, Bowen Island was used as a summer outpost by the native Squamish Nation, who hunted for deer and fished for salmon but today, Bowen Island has a well-deserved reputation as a quiet, rural refuge for artists, writers and others wishing to escape the hubbub of the big city. Quiet log vacation rentals surrounded by greenery make for the perfect getaway while large house accommodations are perfect for family reunions and lively barbeques.

A quiet, forested island just 8 nautical miles, or 20 minutes from West Vancouver, this natural backdrop provides the landscape for rest and relaxation, yet still provides high-energy, adventurous rambles with nature. From extreme biking to subtle art shows, Bowen Island offers everything in between including mansion vacation rentals, numerous hiking trails at all different options, kayaking, swimming, fishing, crabbing, boating, hiking, golfing and much more.

Bowen Island residents offer an intriguing study in contrasts. Affluent homeowners abound, but in their commitment to laidback rural living, they generally favour people over profits and art over avarice, which is why most vacation rental accommodations have a special touch, lots of character and a unique cozy feel. These locals provide great opportunity for visitors to splurge on local artwork, jewelry, fair-trade good and Mediterranean and West Coast food. Certainly, the locals cherish their privacy, but they're also spontaneous enough to pull over and pick up hitchhikers routinely.

Hiking adventures beckon as soon as visitors to Bowen Island get off the ferry in Snug Cove. The terrain is forested and hilly, but there are well-maintained trails suitable for every fitness level on "The Rock," which is slightly smaller in area than Manhattan Island. Exploring Bowen Island on foot is a pleasure since more than half of it is designated parkland, and the environment is clean, green, and serene.

Accessible by public ferry, Bowen Island is a popular retreat for locals. The population is small, the people are friendly and many of the roadways are gravel or small pedestrian walkways (although there is a main road system). Private vacation rental accommodations are available right off of the ferry terminal in the village of Snug Cove or far up the island where privacy is the winning factor. Even boat access only cabin rentals and condo rentals, in the form of characteristic suites (there are no high-rise condo rentals), are available! Oceanside, ocean view, lakeside or lake view or deep nestled into the forest – whatever form of nature you prefer, Owner Direct has the accommodations and lodging on Bowen Island for you.
