Hornby Island Studio B&B

suzy and giff la rose would like to welcome you to the studio bnb which comprises of two units: the studio cottage which is an independent house attached to the main house by a glass walkway. The studio cottage is an elegant hand-crafted small house. Upstairs there is a loft bedroom with a double bed and downstairs is a full kitchen, living room with new la-z boy sofa bed, woodstove for winter use and a bathroom with a claw bathtub. outside there is a barbecue on the private deck on the other side away from the main house so privacy is complete.

We are located by middle bay (a two minute walk) just north of whaling station bay and close to Helliwell park.

due to our upstairs bedroom loft in the studio cottage which has low bookshelves (which are climbable) as the barrier to the down-below living room, the cottage is not suitable for children up to 12 years of age.

Due to severe water shortages in the summer we ask our guests to bring their own linen and towels but if this is not possible we can provide these. Our water is good filtered rainwater (no sulphur smells). We ask our guests to be very vigilant with their water use in the summer.

There are many restaurants open in the summer, but in the shoulder season we have only one restaurant open on Thursdays and Fridays and Sunday brunch (the thatch resort) and sometimes the Seabreeze restaurant is open too. The studio cottage and green room are smoke-free, pet free and candle free zones.

The breakfasts we serve are mainly organic and are not provided for weekly rentals in the cottage in the summer. There is free wifi in the whole house which is turned off at 11pm to minimize health risks.
