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. If weather and time permits, Ben may take you for a ride on his train that meanders through the property!
