Mudge Island is tucked away between Vancouver and Gabriola Island. At the Laurels there is nothing to disturb you but the deer and the woodpeckers. If you want place to get away, to write, relax, read, or hang out at the beach, come to the Laurels.
The Laurels is situated on the highest point on Mudge Island, surrounded by 70+ year old fir trees, and regularly visited by deer, woodpeckers, and other bird life. There is a quiet beach at one end of the island which is very child-friendly.
There are two cabins on the property on Mudge Island. You will have full use of one of them. We may or may not be in the other cabin during your stay. This is probably the quietest spot on the island. In our eight years here we have never heard the goings-on of our neighbours, who are not terribly close by and rarely around. You can expect to have as much peace and quiet as you could want.

If you can get a ferry to Nanaimo, British Columbia, then you can get to our cabin without having to own a car -- we'll tell you how. Mudge Island is accessible only by boat, which we can arrange for you. The Laurels is a cabin on a Gulf Island. What it offers is heaven for some, but hell for others, so before booking please make sure you read through to the end of this section. First, there are no commercial services on the island. You have to bring everything you need with you, including food, and take away any garbage and recycling. Second, phone reception is not perfect. Calls do drop, and you often have to stand outside to prevent that from happening. We have satellite internet available, but unlike the service you may get at home, charges are set according to the amount of data used, so it is not unlimited. Finally, the cabin is equipped with a humanure toilet ((SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) it, or ask us about it) and uses rainwater, not a well. You can treat your rainwater (we provide the tools) or you can walk to the community well to get freshwater for drinking and cooking. Finally, it's an island. Rarely, but sometimes, we lose power. Usually it is restored within a few hours. If it is not and you decide to leave early, we will gladly reimburse you for any days not spent with us. Do ask us any questions you may have.
Please do not play loud music outside. Sound travels very, very far here -- you can occasionally hear sirens from ambulances on the next island over! -- and we would hate for our neighbours to be disturbed. Please leave the cabin as clean as you found it. We will wash all of the linens, but it is expected that dishes and anything else you've used is left as it was found. Thank you!

I've been staying at AirBNB places since it's first year online, beginning with a motorcycle tour of the U.S., to a trip to London, and most recently, Spain. It's been great getting to know so many interesting and kind people out there.
