Bowen Island Listings

There's something to be said for island life.  

Bowen is such a beautiful place that's close enough, yet far enough away from the city and is easily accessible by ferry or water taxi. A quick 20 minute boat ride and you're docking in paradise.

When you roll off the ferry onto Bowen Island - you enter another world. A sense of ahhhh washes over as you feel the tension melt away.
The pace of life immediately slows down and the only traffic you have to deal with is the other cars getting off the ferry (we refer to this as the rush minute), people smile and wave and nature surrounds you.
The stores are locally owned boutique style shops, and the handful of restaurants all have a different flavor and style.

Whether you're looking for a part time home, or considering a full time move, it's helpful to work with an agent with local knowledge.
Bowen Island comes with its own set of unique characteristics and challenges. I understand the various nuances and I can help you navigate through them while searching for your home in paradise.

I maintain an excellent working relationship with the other agents on the island so that we can all work cooperatively to create a seamless transaction and a positive outcome.


Bowen Island Neighbourhoods

Neighborhoods are sprinkled around the island, each with its own characteristics. Listed below are the larger neighborhoods on Bowen (there are a number of smaller neighborhoods not listed here).

This is where the ferry docks and where many shops, businesses, restaurants & cafes, bank, medical office, library and museum are located. Served by municipal water & sewer.

This residential area is on the hillside overlooking Snug Cove. Many of the homes in the Cates Hill Village enjoys views of Howe Sound and the North Shore mountains. You can walk to Snug Cove from here by taking one of the many trails dispersed around the island. 
Cates Hill Village started in 1999 and is now in it's final phase. Serviced by municipal water & sewer. Underground hydro/tel/cable.

Views, views and more views! This is where you can find oceanfront properties, or East facing hillside view lots looking toward West Vancouver and Vancouver. This neighborhood is conveniently located near the Cove and sits above September Morn beach (also rumored to be Bowen's nude beach!) Mainly developed in 1960s to 1990s. Serviced by municipal water and individual septic fields. If you enjoy watching the sun rise this is the place to be.

The Tunstall Bay clubhouse is a membership based facility which offers a social space, pickleball and tennis courts and space to store kayaks/paddleboards. The properties are serviced by municipal water and individual septic fields.

Sealeigh Park + Bowen Bay 

Some would argue that Sealeigh Beach is one of the best on the island, and personally I think some of the best sunsets can be caught from Bowen Bay. These neighborhoods on the West side of the island enjoy warm sunny evenings and are located about 20 minutes from the ferry and the ‘hustle and bustle’ of the Cove. Most of the development took place from the 70s through to the 90s.

Bluewater + King Edward Bay

Blue Water is a neighborhood of approximately 150 homes on the West side of Bowen Island mainly developed in the 70s through to the 90s. There’s a mixture of ocean front properties, and hillside view properties throughout the area. King Edward Bay has been under development since 2007. Both areas are serviced by Municipal water and septic fields.

A collection of 90 homeowners share amenities such as tennis courts, a soccer field, a community dock and a hall for dances and parties. You basically need to be born into acquiring a home in this community!

Eagle Cliff + Scarborough

Eagle Cliff is a narrow strip of waterfront land on the east side of Bowen Island and expands up the hillside. The higher up properties enjoy breathtaking views of the Howe Sound and the North Shore mountains. The steep roads in this area are not for the faint of heart, but once you get used to them the views and the sunrises make it all worthwhile.Development in these areas started back in the 1940s through to the 90s. Serviced by municipal water and individual septic fields.
