Hollybarry Cottage is a well equipped rental property with ample parking on the property. The car parking is located at the side of the cottage and is easy to access, some properties on the Island have parking that would require a 4x4 to access, do check before you book or if you have a rental car make sure you have...

Well appointed, very comfortable cottage. Easy parking, which is not always the case on this hilly island. Well equipped kitchen and clear instructions from the hosts on the use of the amenities as well as navigating Bowen Island's detailed garbage, compost and recycling rules! Very comfortable bed. But the best part is the view of Georgia Strait! Especially love the...

Hollybarry was a pleasant surprise as the photos don't do it justice. We all couldn't believe how comfortable the beds were and the views are incredible! We had a great time on Bowen island for a weekend stay and would highly recommend the cottage. The only thing missing was a firepit for winter time fires outdoors. The downstairs sitting area...

Visited over the 2014 Halloween weekend to get away from city fireworks with the dogs. Nice and quiet, great walking trail to the beach, well stocked cupboards in terms of kitchen stuff and linens, comfy beds and a wood burning fireplace. Great for a weekend get away or visits with friends. Highly recommended.

We spent 2 nights with our adult children and managed to cook turkey dinner for 6 without a problem. The table was tight for 6 but doable. Great view out past the Horseshoe bay bluffs and over to Point Grey. The kitchen is well equipped as is the rest of the cottage. The wood stove had a fire laid and...

We had a wonderful weekend at the cottage. It is so peaceful and relaxing. We loved the accommodations and the view was breathtaking. We drove around the island and came upon the lake. It was a beautiful day for a walk around the lake. I wish we could have stayed longer. We plan on going longer this summer.

We rode our bicycles (20 min from the ferry) to the cottage; it's a great getaway for a few days with all the necessities on the island. The cottage is clean and tidy; the view is outstanding and located only a short distance (steep descent) to the beach for swimming or relaxing in the sun. We loved the relaxing outdoor...

My husband & I have stayed at Hollybarry many times. The cottage is clean organized and gives a wonderful ambience to all that stay. There is a spectacular view - where one sees cruise ships as they leave Vancouver. I have recommended Hollybarry to many friends and family as it is a wonderful place to stay on BOWEN ISLAND.

BEACH ACCESS is only a 5 MINUTE WALK to EAGLE CLIFF BEACH below, a wonderful swimming beach with a summer time community dock great for swimming, fishing, relaxing, soaking up the summer sun, or star gazing at night. NO VEHICLE? No problem.......leave your car behind and arrive via the C11 Eagle Cliff bus, Just a 15 minute bus ride. It will drop you off and pick you up right in front of the cottage. If arriving by car we are located only 8 minutes or 3 k from Snug Cove. We are PET FRIENDLY so bring your Fido along. Dogs are only $10 per pet per night, maximum of 2.

Sit and dine at our casual dining table for 4 guests. Or prepare your meal on the outdoor patio propane BBQ with outdoor dining at our large benched picnic table...........family style. This well cared for cottage provides a wonderful airy and bright ambiance with a southerly ocean view bringing in all the warm sunshine of the day. The ocean view is ever changing with ferry traffic, cruise ships, tug boats, all with the backdrop of the Coastal Mountains and West Vancouver. On the main floor you will find the living room, kitchen, dinette, powder bath, and the 2 queen bedrooms. Relax in casual comfort in the living room with a propane fireplace and a wonderful view. We allow fires in the fireplace October through April. Whether summer sunshine streaming through the south facing windows or a wild winter storm, take pleasure in the ever changing panoramic view.
