We spent a fabulous weekend at Galiano Island and stayed at the Sticks and Stones Country Cottage. Our hosts, Ralph and Rocky Moyle were extremely accommodating and helpful. The self-contained unit itself is warm and inviting and has absolutely everything that you need. During the cooler weather the wood stove adds extra ambiance to the evenings and we thoroughly enjoyed...

Two couples visiting Galiano for a weekend wedding. Our hosts were nothing short of amazing! From the professional previsit organization, the thoughtful snacks, all the way to the generous offers to drive us into the pub one night...this is a place worth visiting again and again. A true Galiano beauty.

Ralph & Rocky were wonderful! They have a lovely property & thought of all the accommodations to make our stay so comfortable. Rocky even brought us homemade apple pie...that was still warm! The best I ever had!! Since they've been on the Island for over 30 years, they know it like the back of their hands. They had wonderful suggestions...

My boyfriend and I booked Arrow’s run cottage (upstairs) and it was an absolute dream!! It was clean, spacious and everything was decorated beautifully.

We had a lovely and very comfortable stay in this adorable cottage with all the modern necessities. Close to the beach, hiking trails and easy access to moped and boat rentals. Hosts Rocky and Ralph are sure to make you feel "right at home". Great place for a couple, a family or a small group of friends. Highly recommended!

We had a fantastic stay at the Arrows Run cottage (upstairs). The apartment is spacious and stunning, beautifully furnished and with those jaw-dropping windows which look out through the forest and onto the sea (with the twinkling lights of Vancouver visible in the distance). The kitchen is a joy to use, with lots of gadgets and utensils, inc coffee machine....

We stayed at Arrow's Run, which is the upper part of a beautiful home. The accommodations were very modern, clean and comfortable. The location was perfect and we appreciated the helpful advice. We were a bit surprised when we arrived that it was shared, with the lower portion of the house also being rented, although completely separate. The only negative...
