May 2015: While Bluffs on Bowen still welcomes guests, the Island Thyme cottage has sold. No new bookings will be taken for Island Thyme.
Our new Evergreen Ridge location offers an exciting experience set
high on bluffs on the island's west side. Expansive views of nearby islands
and distant coastlines of Vancouver Island, Sunshine Coast and beyond. Absolutely spectacular sunsets. Mossy bluffs smothered in foxgloves in Spring followed by waving, golden grasses in summer. Weathered firs, roots dug deep into the bedrock to withstand the channel winds, gnarled silhouettes against a big sky. Super natural Bowen Island.
Enjoy dramatic sunsets and mysterious winter mists. Unique,
custom designed house of curved roofs and floor-to-ceiling
windows overlooking a green roof. Bird life abounds.
Dramatic winter storm watching.
Spacious studio with contemporary interior and modern furnishings. Bright and light-filled, with vaulted curved ceiling and expansive window wall. A modern kitchen including dishwasher, microwave/convection oven and cappuccino/expresso machine. Beautiful bathroom with vaulted ceiling and views of the forest.
A small community surrounded by rainforest, creeks, fern valleys and moss covered bluffs surrounded by parkland. One of Bowen's best
swimming and sunset viewing beach at Bowen Bay and a network of forested walking/hiking trails nearby. Naturalistic style garden in harmony with its wild surroundings and large ponds created to help sustain native habitat and nurture wildlife. Organic vegetable and herb garden which bounty you are welcome to share when available! ***Please be aware of natural hazards such as high cliffs with slippery mosses and ponds. Keep back from the edge of bluffs and watch adventurous children carefully.***
Private entrance and deck overlooking views of coastline and bluffs.

"A morning and ocean lover's paradise! When I saw the Bluff's on the web I worried no place could be as beautiful or tranquil as the photos suggested - luckily I was wrong. Three of us long-time girlfriends chose the Bluffs to getaway. We were thrilled to drive up and see amazing panoramic views of the ocean which continue right inside our suite. It is new, beautifully furnished, great bed, and from the espresso machine to the sharp knives, fresh fruit and croissants - it was bliss. Wynn is a gracious host - helpful at request and offering privacy to visitors. We will be back! "
"My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Bluffs on Bowen for a long weekend and had an amazing time. What a stunning location! The view from the suite is absolutely mind blowing. We have both travelled extensively, staying in many unique locations around the world, and we agree that this is our favorite. Aside from the truly breath-taking view, the suite is brand new and beautiful. Kitchen is fully equipped with state of the art appliances and pantry generously stocked. Suite has own entrance which gives guests total privacy and ability to come/go as they please. Property is located in a forested area with many trails to explore and is minutes from the beach. Honestly, we had the best time here and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing, luxurious and unique getaway! Thank you for your gracious hospitality!

Our host has gone the extra mile to ensure that you more than enjoy your

“You've built a beautiful home and we're blessed to be your guests. We really enjoyed our stay at the Bluffs on Bowen Island, and we too took forward to seeing the garden and green roof the next time we visit.”
“The Bluffs appealed to us as there seemed to be only a few lodgings on Bowen island with an ocean view. I could have spent most of my time reading and drinking wine while enjoying the serene view. I would recommend this property to a friend or relative as a quiet couple's getaway. All in all, for the price point the Bluffs is a good property and I recommend it.”
“...stunning views, wonderful suite. Can't wait to come back and see the garden once it is finished. We wish you all the best for this new venture. Thanks for making us feel so comfortable, and for all the small touches that make this place feel so lovely.”
“Beautiful setting, ideal location for hikes and quiet relaxation, very comfortable new suite (this is an understatement!). A wonderful hostess. Will definitely visit again, and spread the word!”
“The Bluffs" is an absolutely fantastic place! We were the very first guests staying at the suite and had the pleasure of enjoying the owner's hospitality. The views are simply amazing. The suite is just as shown in the photos: Modern, elegant and very comfortable. We relaxed and enjoyed the piece and quiet, never feeling separated from the surrounding nature, but more as part of it. This is definitely a place we'll visit again!”
