Cortes Island, BC, Canada
New to the rental market in 2017. Designed by artists, Cortes Bay Oceanfront Cabin and Guesthouse will appeal to anyone who appreciates mid-century modern architecture, but also wants high-end modern conveniences.
The property has over 300' of waterfront, sitting on a south-facing cove adjacent to the entrance of Cortes Bay. It is pristine and private with tons of charm. Under a canopy of tall evergreen trees, you’ll also find Arbutus trees, berries, grasses, mosses, herbs, flowers, bluffs and a stream flowing to the ocean. The ocean water temperatures warm up to 22 degrees in summer, making it great for swimming. On the beach, you’ll find plenty of oysters, driftwood and shells. Deer and many birds are attracted to the property and sometimes Orcas, Humpbacks, seals and dolphins can be seen off the shore. Marine wolves roam the shores on rare occasion, but are very shy. There is even a sunfish that has made its home in the bay! The bay is sheltered, perfect for paddle boarding or kayaking. Crown land lies behind the property, so plenty of hiking.
