Did not care for the steep driveway however we did have a 4wd so the husbands drove down & the ladies walked. No problem. There is plenty...

Management response:

About the neighborhood
The Lazy Bowen Hideaway is medium highbank waterfront located on the east side of rural Bowen Island, British Columbia. The waterfront cottage is sitting atop medium high bank cliffs with a spectacular southerly view of the Coastal Mountains, Cypress Ski Resort, Ferry Lanes, West Vancouver, and the University of British Columbia. The cottage is quietly located down a gravel road (AWD required) nestled among the Arbutus and Fir trees. 2WD vehicle only? No worries, inquire about our Cleator Road Shuttle service. Our cottage is in a Quiet and private, away from it all neighbourhood.
Getting around
A car is not required as the Hideaway is along the C11 Eaglecliff bus route. But to see the entire island it is recommended to arrive by car as the bus does not cover the complete island.
