WELCOME TO PEACEFUL, PRIVATE HORNBY
This pleasant, bright, Hornby Island home is located on eleven acres of open field and second-growth forest. You are near Grassy Point, library, Joe King Park, recycling depot, community hall and market, and a short ride from the Co-op and Big Trib.
Enjoy your privacy here. The house has two bedrooms with double beds. There is also a fold-out couch. Heating is by wood stove and electric baseboard heaters.
The water is excellent and abundant—one of Hornby’s best wells—and we drink it straight from the tap, but we must conserve during the summer months. We’ve also installed a water-collecting cistern.
There is a full bathroom with shower and bathtub.
The kitchen has a fridge and stove, microwave, toaster, coffee grinder, and the usual pots, pans, cutlery and dishes. A dining area comfortably sits six.
The living room, dining area and study have wood veneer floors. The large deck, has picnic table, chairs and a BBQ.
Our place is “unplugged.” No wi-fi or cable but there is a TV and DVD/Blu-Ray player. Wi-fi is available at several places on the island and DVDs can be rented at Ford’s Cove.
You need to bring your own blankets, pillows, sheets (doubles), pillow cases and kitchen, beach and bath towels. We have no laundry facilities.
Smoking outside only. Pets are welcome.
Central location; walk or bike the forested back trail to the library, community hall, Joe King Park, and summer markets.
