Details of Sun Lotus Art House, Vancouver Island, British Columbia Youth Hostels Details for Sun Lotus Art House


Well-off the beaten path, Sun Lotus Art House is a 7.5 acre secluded, natural and hand-crafted paradise & outdoor-lounge with lush forests, scattered gardens, and a beautiful backdrop of sparkling fresh pond water and rolling mountain vistas. Located on Vancouver Island, in the heart of the Cowichan Valley outside Duncan. Husband and wife artists, Anita & Paul Daan welcome you to visit and explore their paradise and step inside their creative vision of the future...

This guesthouse is evolving towards a model-lifestyle with modesty, sustainability and ecological-awareness as their goal. As guests explore the grounds they will find most things to have been hand-crafted from recycled, re-used, found, and fabricated materials. Sun Lotus tries to avoids consumerism, waste and consumption and the profoundly negative effects it has on the environment and individuals.
They aim to prove that creativity curbs consumerism! Therefore you can expect to find the accommodations to be quaint, adequate, and frugal, but still very attractive.

That being said, you will find the extraordinary natural beauty and warm energy of the property embracing and ultimately relaxing as you stroll the grounds enjoying the extensive gardens, forests, clean & warm swimming-pond, sun-decks, hammocks and on-site activities. And although there is no common kitchen, delicious, nutritious, hearty home-cooked meals, usually of international flair, are provided at a reasonable price.

Not surprisingly, Sun Lotus Art House has become a very popular site for Vancouver Island weddings leaving virtually no availability on Fridays & weekends throughout the spring and summer. So, most guesthouse bookings are taken only on Monday thru Thursdays.

Sun Lotus Art House is a central location from which to explore the whole of the southern half of Vancouver Island, being one hour's drive from either Victoria or Nanaimo, with their most famous local-activity being the amazing tubing expedition they provide on the beautiful & historic Cowichan river.

Breezy, sunny & warm, this uniquely hand-crafted venue, with wonderful southern exposure, is rustic, relaxed and blessed with undeniable Feng Shui�a true escape.

Stay in the private pond-side tipi (2-4 people) or the private bunkhouse cabin (2-10 people)
all minimum double occupancy

Directions


ADDRESS: 5070 Culverton Rd. Duncan
PLEASE CALL BEFORE YOU ARRIVE:


FROM VICTORIA:

Take HWY 1 North, just after the bridge entering into Duncan--turn left on TRUNK rd, it becomes GOVERNMENT rd, follow it around the back of town until the intersection with SHERMAN rd at a ROUNDABOUT; turn left, follow until you see 'TANSOR/TEMPO GAS' where you turn left onto COWICHAN LK. Rd. (hit your trip meter); drive for exactly 6KM; Look for JORDON'S LANE and a ROUND WHITE SIGN appearing on your left, about 1/2 km more, turn left on CULVERTON and follow for 1KM--turn in at SUN LOTUS sign. (NOTE: whilst driving Lake Cowichan Rd. do not go past the sign on your right for Paldi �the turn is about 1/2km before the Paldi sign).


FROM NANAIMO:

Take HWY 1 South towards Duncan--but, just before Duncan at the junction with HWY 18 turn right towards LAKE COWICHAN; aprox. 3km turn left at TANSOR rd.; turn right (after the hydro tower on your right) onto COWICHAN LK. rd. (hit your trip meter); drive for exactly 6KM, Look for JORDON'S LANE and a ROUND WHITE SIGN appearing on your left, about 1/2 km more, turn left on CULVERTON and follow for 1KM--turn in at SUN LOTUS sign. (NOTE: whilst driving Lake Cowichan Rd. do not go past the sign on your right for Paldi�the turn is about 1/2km before the Paldi sign).

HOW TO GET HERE BY FERRY

If you do not have a vehicle, from downtown Vancouver,�you can take a PCL bus directly to Victoria (it goes on-board the ferry and then off again in Victoria and your fare is all inclusive)� then take another Greyhound Bus for a beautiful 1 hour drive over the Malahat mountain to get to the Duncan Bus depot.�from there, a public bus #7 Lake Cowichan (no buses on Sunday, and only 1 bus on Saturday�the bus depot can show you a current schedule) follow the directions above. Or call us to see if a pick-up is available�more likely if you call in advance.

If you have your own vehicle you have the choice of 3 suitable arrival points on the Island, but the best choices are the 2 ferry docks Near Nanaimo called Departure Bay & Duke Point, (the other is the 1 nearest Victoria --which is actually in Sidney--called Swartz Bay )

The departure points from Vancouver are either Tswassen Dock (south Vancouver) or from Horseshoe Bay Dock (north Vancouver)...we are located half way between Victoria and Nanaimo...but, coming from Nanaimo is more direct by following Highway 1 south.


PLEASE CALL BEFORE YOU ARRIVE--THANK YOU.78
