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.

An unforgettable location, perfect for romantic couples, small family times together and special celebrations. It occupies the upper left portion of the house.
