Don and I started with this bare site in June 2013 and worked together to design and build our beautiful cottage. It was wonderful even though very hard work to watch our dream come together and become what it today. There for everyone who stays here to love and enjoy as much as we do. We are very proud of the cottage and the wonderful feelings of joy we get when we are at Cain Cottage. We hope one day to build our retirement home on another part of the property. It is the perfect stick finding place for our beloved rescue dog Lakai.
Sue and Don Findlay Smith purchased this cottage in 2013
This is the perfect property for us as it is so close to everything on the island. Restaurants, shops, galleries, bakery, walks, parks, beaches, pub, museum, Saturday market, the halls where many events and celebrations take place and also the ferry in fact it's perfectly situated for everything. It is also large enough to easily accommodate the cottage, Don's garage, necessary for us both to be happy, as he is a truck driver, heavy equipment operator, the island boat mechanic, and general monkey wrencher. There is also a good space to build our retirement rancher. One of the most important things about this property is the great well with beautiful crystal clear water thanks to the top of the line reverse osmosis system and water storage area.
The existing old trees and the peaceful feeling that we get from the quiet of the location of the land despite being so close to everything. We have just installed a new state of the art self cleaning hot tub in it's own gazebo just off the bed room deck. No heavy chemicals and so much better for the skin for our guest to enjoy the massage jets.
My boyfriend and 2 dogs had a wonderful time at the Cain Cottage. We celebrated my birthday by relaxing, soaking in the well kept, perfectly warm hot tub, getting good sleep in a comfy bed and cooking delicious meals in the full equipped kitchen. And maybe best of all for this doggie mom, the dogs truly enjoyed their time romping in the 2 acre, fenced in yard! Thank you Sue and Don for sharing the cabin and making the visit so wonderful!
This was our third stay at Cain Cottage. We celebrated our first wedding anniversary this year, having stayed for our honeymoon last year. We keep coming back here because of the exceptional hospitality of hosts Sue and Don. The cottage offers everything and seems to anticipate any possible need. The private hot tub is an added bonus that helped to soothe our achy feet after a day of hiking one of Galiano's many trails. The kitchen provides almost everything required to prepare any meal, regardless of complexity. The privacy encourages intimate evenings by the fireplace.
Sue and Don have consistently provided such warm receptions that we now consider them friends. We would recommend Cain Cottage to anyone seeking a peaceful and private getaway on such a beautiful island.
Thanks again, Sue and Don....always a privilege to share your piece of paradise.
Sue and Don's hospitality is unparalleled. They keep their cottage impeccable. It made this vacation luxurious, yet homey. Sue made us an excellent coconut bread. We hope to be back and would encourage everyone to try to visit Sue and Don.
Our stay was Perfect. Tranquility and relaxation. Just everything there a few steps away. Pet friendly and secure. Beautifully appointed cottage with so much to enjoy!
My husband and I spent two days at the Cain Cottage on Galiano Island - the stay was all too short! This place is first class - very well equipped, bright, very clean and conveniently located close to Sturdies Bay. The first morning of our stay we were greeted by Sue with a plate of blueberry scones, still warm from the oven! They were delicious! We enjoyed both mornings on the huge veranda that wraps around the cottage - paradise! Sue and Don take great pride in this cottage and are continuously working to make it better, although I am not sure what more they need to do! It is such a peaceful place for a holiday - a return visit is a definite must for us. We also enjoyed dinner at the Pilgrimme Restaurant on the island - a must place to visit while staying on Galiano. Also enjoyed some awesome Thai food at Wild 1 - another must. We will definitely be back to Galiano Island and Cain Cottage will be our first choice to stay.
Sue and Don are fabulous hosts! So responsive from the time we booked until departure. The cottage is stunning, clean, modern, every amenity we could have needed. Great location near the ferry shops and golf. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer. We will be back. I would recommend this spot to anyone looking for a great getaway on Galiano, we were part of a family reunion and we sure were the winners in the accommodation department. One if not the nicest cottage accommodation on Galiano.
