At Suite Hornby

Welcome to At Suite Hornby. We, your hosts, are a recently retired couple. We packed up and moved all our worldly possessions to this property where we completed the build of our home in October 2017. We built it with a suite on the ground floor to ensure both living spaces could maximize on the stunning high bank ocean front view. We occupy the upper level with our own entrance. The 470 square foot suite has a living room and a master bedroom with a queen bed. The bathroom has a shower, no tub. There is a kitchenette with a mini fridge and a mini freezer, microwave, hot plate, kettle, toaster oven, a french press coffee pot along with dishes glassware and the necessary pots and pans and cutlery. The suite looks out onto its own private deck with outdoor furniture and a propane barbecue. You are located next to the covenanted Gary Oak Grove, the most northernly grove in North America and adjacent to the path to Helliwell Provincial Park which is a mere 5-minute walk from the suite. Each room has large windows with a view that can surprise you with eagles perched in Douglas fir trees 20 feet away. Below in the ocean Orcas have been sighted as well as humpback and grey whales. Oh, and we cannot forget our resident seals that frolic freely as well. Deers are not far off most of the time. It is truly a natural paradise. A 2-minute drive or a 15-minute walk will get you to Big Trib bay beach where it feels like the California of the north.

This is ideal for couples and is not suitable for young children as we are on high bank and there are no fences.

Rudy and I are home most of the time to answer any questions you may have. If we are not home we could very well be out fishing. We have a young white Labrador Retriever named Boomer. He is a very enthusiastic lovable lab who is in his own world separate from the suite.

Linens are provided but you must bring your own beach towels.

No smoking and no pets.

Hope to Sea you soon.
