activities ..... .accommodations .......general info
Stay long enough to relax...

It takes a day or two just to unwind and let your senses adjust to the environment. Guests often arrive exhilarated but tired from the trip. We recommend at least a four or five day visit to get the full benefit our retreat has to offer.


... play with the natural elements

~ explore tide pools, reefs and nearby islands
~ hike or bike down the road to Squitty Bay Provincial Marine Park, climb Mount Tremarton, or make a day trip to Jedediah Island Provincial Marine Park
~ troll for salmon, or jig for cod and rockfish
~ go horseback riding at Bonnie's farm nearby
~ swim and snorkel right at your doorstep
~ excellent scuba diving waters
~ conclude the day with a rustic BBQ or clam bake down at the beach


~ kayak in pristine waters
~ dig clams at low tide
~ come "off-season" for winter stormwatching

  ~ watch otters, porpoises, eagles, hawks and a multitude of shorebirds
~ enjoy a massage, bodywork, and a variety of island workshops
~ explore the island by bike or on foot - Lasqueti roads are perfect for this, as there is very little traffic
~ watch the night sky from your deck or from the hot tub - the night sky is brilliant when you're this far from city lights
~ go for a night swim or paddle and discover the brilliant bioluminessence in the local waters

Guests have the place exclusively to themselves, prepare their own meals and attend to their own housekeeping. The accommodations are cozy, rustic, comfortable and very private.

The Beach House is right on the shore, with a self-contained suite which can accomodate up to 4 guests.
.....- queen bed / 2 bunks
(More guests can be accomodated if they want to tent.)

The suite has its own kitchen, a full size fridge/freezer, a small propane range with oven, and all cookware, dishes, and place setttings. Basic stock items (i.e., seasonings, dish soap) are provided.

Towels and bedding are provided. There is a shower in the suite, and an outdoor solar shower at the rear of our house. We encourage visitors to bring their own towels for the beach.

Our toilet facilities are also rustic, with just a simple composting outhouse. We have no inside toilet facilities. Another reason to remember to bring a flashlight....


- aside from Brigitte and Joseph's
homestead, there are no other residences in the area. Joseph or Brigitte may be around if you have any questions or special requests, but guests are independent.

- we're open all year. our location is ideal for winter stormwatching

- pets are welcome: a word of caution, pets must be under control or on leash as we have free range sheep and deer in the area. We do have a fenced yard.

- remember to bring a flashlight and a few extra batteries for each person in your party. we do have electric power indoors, supplied by solar panels and a water wheel.

- other island facilities: there are two small stores and a pub/restaurant/hotel in False Bay, at the ferry landing. a little further up the road is a charming little gift shop, a bakery, the Lasqueti Arts Centre, the Post Office and the Internet Center.
