Rest and Relax


Looking for a restful and relaxing vacation? The Retreat Motel in Gillies Bay on Texada Island offers natural surroundings where you can relax and unwind.

Located on the western shores of Texada Island, The Retreat looks over the sparkling waters of the Georgia Strait to fabulous views of Vancouver Island: the Comox Valley, the Comox Spit, Mount Washington and Forbidden Plateau and northern ends of Denman and Hornby Islands. A hectare of sloping oceanfront property ends in 200 feet of small pebble beach, great for swimming and sunning.
 
Our units offer double and family accommodations with fully equipped kitchens. Your private cedar deck looks out to the strait and gorgeous evening sunsets end the day. Clear skies at night let star gazers pick out their favourite constellations and planets.  
 
Enjoy the Outdoors
 
As well as the great beach activities, clams and oysters are not far off for shellfish enthusiasts to gather (license required). Exploring the beach at low tide is always fun for all ages. Bring your kayak or car topper for some boating fun. The Nature Trail is a groomed trail that can be a pleasant stroll or a vigorous walk. As Texada Island has no predatory animals, hiking and biking and exploring the forests and old logging roads is comparatively safe.  
 
Texada Island is home to many populations of deer which forage alongside the roads, in the bush and in our yards. Birds are abundant and varieties include song birds, the magnificent eagle, osprey and herons which live near the shore. Seals and sea lions swim through the waters as well.   
 
A nine hole golf course is open year round at reasonable prices. This volunteer managed course puts up a challenge to golfers new and experienced.

Two tennis courts are available in Gillies Bay for play.
 
Services and Amenities
 
The Retreat is located next door to Shelter Point Regional Park which offers boating, camping and food services. There are restaurants and grocery stores in Gillies Bay and Van Anda as well as a gas station, a credit union and a medical clinic and the Royal Canadian Legion.
 
Texada Island is accessed via Powell River on BC Ferries. Routes from West Vancouver from Horseshoe Bay and Vancouver Island from Comox (Little River) are available. The Texada Airport provides regularly scheduled flights with KD Air and private small craft can access airport services.
