The boat launch, wharf and buoy provide for boaters of every kind from kayakers to motor boats. Enjoy exploring the trails through the expansive private forest that loop to the oceanfront. On the rest of the island there oodles is of hiking and opportunity for cycling as well as plenty of events and festivals to be enjoyed, especially during the summer months. Although many believe Seal Beach is the best beach on Mayne (with almost exclusive access to 1800' sandy waterfront), there are plenty of other beaches you may want to explore. Winter evenings are cozy after walks on the beach with plenty of firewood provided for the wood burning stove. Wireless internet and cable provided. Within 3 km of the ferry, pub, and shops allowing easy access for hikers, cyclists and drivers. At all times of the year enjoy seeing the diverse wildlife including seals, whales, eagles, heron and deer. Our cottage is a perfect retreat for anyone interested in experiencing the best of British Columbia. Two bedrooms provide lots of space for four guests and the pullout couch provides comfortable accommodation for up to 6. Seal Beach Cottage provides a wonderful time away for couples, families, and friends. Well behaved dogs are welcome however we do request that they be supervised at all times, picked up after, are clean and dry when entering the cottage and remain off the furniture. There is a fee of $50/dog/stay payable directly to the owner prior to arrival. Please note there may be other dogs on the property. Please note: The cottage shares this large property with a small walk-in 'tenting only' campground which is open May to mid-September. Campers walk past the side of the cottage on arrival and departure. None of the campsites can be seen from the cottage. Our vision is to provide a tranquil, environmentally conscious campground retreat for families and those that love the outdoors. No electronic music is permitted and quiet by 11pm is strictly enforced.More

About the neighbourhood
Mayne Island is one of BCs beautiful Southern Gulf Islands. From the Vancouver lower Mainland ferry terminal it is a 65 minute direct ferry trip and from Victoria it is 50 minutes. The ferry travels through some of the most gorgeous marine views Canada has to offer. Truly a West Coast experience! You can reach us by float plane from either destination in 20 minutes. Mayne Island is a peaceful and active retreat offering memorable experiences, year round. Engage in meaningful enjoyment while boating, hiking, biking, nature touring, shopping, dining, beach combing, and just 'chill in'. We are central to all the Southern Gulf islands and as such we make the perfect hub for your day trips to all the other islands. When you come to Mayne Island and arrive at Seal Beach Cottage Although th...
