Bayview Garden is a waterfront heritage home with a three-bedroom cottage separate from the main house.
Cheerful and comfortable, this place is at the shore of beautiful Shingle Bay in Sandspit, Haida Gwaii.

Savary Island is 7.5 kilometers long and 1 kilometer wide at the widest point. Savary is known for its white sand beaches, beautiful swimming waters and stunning ocean and mountain views.

The warm waters surrounding Savary Island make it an excellent location for swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking, water skiing, boating, scuba diving, fishing and shell fishing (with a valid fishing license of course). The Island also boasts kilometers of hiking and biking trails that wind through the lush growth of fir, cedar, maple, alder, pine, yew and arbutus trees that cover most of the island.
