Beautiful secluded hideaway right in the heart of magical Gabriola Island. Minutes walk through boardwalks and community gardens to our little village.

The Forest
First time using this platform, and do not regret it. Ashley’s land was beautiful, she is super friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be back and recommend this to anyone. We have two dogs who had even more fun than we did. We opted in for the treats, tea and coffee,Well worth it. Thank you Ashley for your hospitality cannot wait to return! :)

The marsh
Beautiful site & community
Beautiful getaway spot: far from traffic and immersed in the trees so all you hear at the site is wildlife. Close to so many beautiful beaches, trails, farms & easily accessible from the ferry (we travelled here on foot from Vancouver)! Host is so lovely and friendly, went above & beyond to make sure we had a great experience! Met many locals during our short trip and everyone was so kind. Will definitely be back to visit the mermaid marsh & the sweet people of Gabriola!
