    Description

    Situated in the Southern Gulf Islands, Parker Island stands just a short distance off the coast of Galiano Island, providing a shield for Montague Harbour—a hotspot for boaters in the region.

    This nearly 10-acre property offers ample space and privacy, making it feel like your personal sanctuary. Despite having neighbors, once you're on-site, the seclusion is pure luxury. With a southwest orientation, the property maximizes sunlight exposure and offers stunning sunset views perched above Trincamali Channel, providing an uninterrupted 180-degree panorama.

    Practicalities are already taken care of—power line is on site, a well has been drilled, and a septic field installed. The only decision left is picking the spot for your build.

    A shared dock and landing site serve as a meeting point for locals and provide easy access to the sandy spit for hanging out at the beach, having a camp fire and all other water activities. The property is a short walk from this hub, or like many other residents hop in your utility vehicle for a quick and easy ride or to transport supplies.

    Parker Island strikes a balance—offering a remote feel while being easily accessible from Galiano Island. Enjoy the solitude of your surroundings, then hop in your dinghy for a cruise around Montague Harbour or head to the nearby marina for supplies and a meal. And when you crave some lively moments, a short and entertaining bus ride takes you up the hill to the pub. It's the best of both worlds, combining the quiet charm of Parker Island with the conveniences of Galiano.
