Hornby Island Vacation House

Our Hornby Island vacation home is available for rent all year long.  This cliff top, waterfront house has a beautiful view looking southwest across Tribune Bay to the mountains of Vancouver Island.  There are many things we really like about the house:

  • Outstanding water and mountain view from the entire main floor.
  • The large deck with no railing to block the view.
  • Situated in its natural setting with rare Arbutus trees, Fir trees, and Salal.
  • Large windows on both sides of the living and dining areas.  Enjoy the waterfront view on one side and the forest view on the other.
  • 10-15 minute walk along a cliff top trail to a grove of rare Garry Oak trees and the spectacular Helliwell Provincial Park.
  • 25-35 minute walk or five minute drive to the long, wide, warm, and sandy beach at Tribune Bay Provincial Park.
  • Quiet and private location well away from the neighbours and roads.
  • Located on Hornby Island, the most tourist oriented of all the British Columbia Gulf Islands.  See the Things to do on Hornby Island web page for more information and a slideshow about Hornby.

See more of the house on the Vacation House Videos and Photos web page.

The house sleeps six: a master bedroom with a queen bed on the main floor and a large loft with a queen bed and two singles.  The loft is accessed using a “ship’s ladder” stair. There are linen and blankets available for all beds.  There is one bathroom.

The well equipped kitchen includes all the typical pots, utensils, dishes, etc.  There is a barbeque on the back deck.  The dining and living areas each have seating for six.  There is also a table with seating for six on the front deck.

There is an Internet connection with Wi-Fi.  There are televisions on main floor and the loft.  The main floor television is a smart-TV with direct connections to Netflix, YouTube, and other popular Internet services.  (Customers must use their own accounts to access Netflix and other subscription services.)  The television also has an extra HDMI connection and cable for customers who want to use their own game players or other devices.  The main floor has a DVD/VCR combo player while the loft has a DVD player.  There are no broadcast or cable television signals available at the house.

Unfortunately the house is not suitable for families with young children or sleep walkers.  This is because it is located about 10 meters (30 feet) from a 70 meter (200 foot) vertical cliff.  There are no fences or barriers of any kind anywhere on the property.

We do not permit pets, smoking, open fires, or camping anywhere on the property.
