About the Property
Private Oceanfront Vacation Getaway
Cove Time Retreat is a private 4-acre vacation getaway idyllically situated at the mouth of Desolation Sound in BC’s Discovery Islands. Surrounded by crown land, it is one of the only privately held parcels of land within desirable Refuge Cove on West Redonda Island.
This serene property was homesteaded in 1913 and was once an orchard. Fruit bearing trees still remain, with juicy heritage pears available in September.
3 Bedroom Vacation Rental
Cove Time is an off-the-grid, self-contained property accessible only by boat, with water taxi and float plane to Refuge Cove easily arranged. We are presently converting the property into a vineyard and corporate retreat, but until that time, the cabin is being offered as a vacation rental with accommodations for up to 8 people.
The property includes a 3-bedroom cabin, a shop, covered dock, and private bay, with warm ocean swimming just steps from the cottage. Excellent hiking trails through old growth forest surround the property, and a pebbly beach with tide pools is great for exploring.
Best of Both Worlds
Visitors to our vacation home enjoy the unique benefit of complete privacy, yet are only 2 minutes away by boat from amenities in Refuge Cove (10 minutes by rowboat or kayak) and 5 minutes by boat from amenities in Squirrel Cove.
If you’re looking for a place to unwind – you’ve found it! Cove Time Retreat is the perfect spot to make your home base while discovering Desolation Sound and the Discovery Islands. Explore the private bay, seek out unique viewpoints, hike the well-maintained trails, or relax on the deck and simply enjoy the views and wildlife.
