Nautilus House

Nautilus House sits between the ocean and the sky, in the Whaling Station Bay neighbourhood of Hornby Island. We are a stone’s throw from the white sand and mesmerizing sandstone formations of the beach and border Helliwell Provincial Park, a nature-lover’s paradise.

Lounge in the peace and solitude of the sunny back garden, or meander down to the beach for a game of bocce and a dip. Take a picnic lunch up onto the grassy bluffs of Helliwell or find the perfect souvenir at the Ringside Market.

The Nautilus House offers guests 2 separate accommodations. They are located on opposite sides of the Main House, nestled amongst our towering trees and manicured garden acreage. Both suites offer private entrances and patios, away from the other living spaces on the property, however close enough to enjoy the shared access to our sprawling property and back-yard hot tub. If weather and time permits, Ben may take you for a ride on his train that meanders through the property!

Nautilus Suite
The “Nautilus Suite” has a bright and airy design, with natural light throughout. It is attached to the main house, yet does not share a wall with any of the owner’s living spaces. While adjacent to the beach, the sunny south-facing garden views retains its privacy for those who cherish peace and quiet. The Nautilus Suite is currently under renovation/updating to a clean and fresh design, interior pics will be available soon.

A private path leads to the 750sq/ft Nautilus Suite entrance, where your oasis awaits. Each of the three bedrooms is appointed with a queen bed, plus one with a twin bunk. The living/dining/kitchenette room looks onto the private patio, with more seating and a BBQ, and the manicured back gardens with access to the shared hot tub. Alternatively, this listing could be combined with our other suite if you have a larger group.
