Powell River is a hiden treasure of West Coast of British Columbia, Canada, due to the Isolation from the big cities on the Main Land, You will have to take two ferries to get here, Don't let that discourage you, The ferry trips themselves are a life time experience, The ferry will pass many small islands where tall Cedars; Firs; and Arbutus trees grow; and the bald eagles fly; the water below is home to Pacific Salmons; Cod fish Prawns and Dungeness Crabs.

And because of Powell River is insulated from the big cities, It Is a very Safe Place for tourists to be here.. Local people are very friendly and helpful.

I highly recommend you come to Powell River - " The Pearl of the Sunshine Coast" ( By the way we have the best tasting oyesters in the world.)to explore , and relax and unwind at Boxwood Cottages.

Hammocks, swing, picnic tables, and chairs, large lawn suround by flowers, and fruits trees,, Bar-B-Q under the grape arbour, small fridge to keep your beer cold.

Owner Diana is a Horticulturist and Landscape artist, and a firm believer of Permaculture.

Response from the owner it is helpful for your honest review, It allows me to improve what my place is lacking and what I have that should be proud of. I will buy some non sticking pans and rubber spatula; wooden spoons for the guests who wish to use them. The Cottage is build in the early 30's by a home owner,The stairway is narrow and steep, I had a hand railing installed precise for this reason. The builder's son is still living inPowell River. I enjoyed talking to your mom, and seeing your young daughter exploring in my garden. It was my pleasure to host a cheerful family like yours. I hope to see you in the future. sincerely, Diana
