About Breakwater Island


Rent your own private island in Georgia Strait off Gabriola Island, British Columbia. Breakwater Island is home to deer, eagles, the occasional sea otter, clams and oysters. This island could become your own private getaway. Breakwater lies off the southeastern shore of Gabriola Island, between Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland of British Columbia in Georgia Strait.

The island is one mile long, 74 acres in size and 170 feet above sea level at its highest point. The sun-dappled forest of firs and arbutus trees covers most of the island, interspersed with meadows and surrounded by warm sandstone beaches. Near the two houses lies a sandy swimming beach of aquamarine hues. The waters off the south end of Breakwater are a well-known diving area famous for wolf eels.

There are two houses on the island, a five minute walk from each other. The island is only rented to one group at a time. The larger cottage, Breakwater Log House, sleeps 6, and Breakwater Rock House sleeps 4.

Breakwater Log House was built with hand tools in 1933 by carpenters from the First Nation for the first white settlers on Breakwater Island. It has been renovated several times, most recently by the current owners in 2003. The log house remains faithful to the original design with large logs, including bark, creating the inner and outer walls, chinked with moss. The fireplace in the dining room, one of four, has two original totem carvings, coloured with local berry juice, supporting the mantle.
