Modern-natural. Relaxing. Surfside.
Whether you are travelling to business or to complete your bucket list you'll love the modern and spacious 1,200 square foot oceanfront retreat on the beach level of our home with a private entrance, covered deck and beach access. Two luxurious master bedrooms with ensuites, a living room, fully equipped kitchen, and private 500 square foot wrap-around deck are ideal for everyone from couples to colleagues to a family of four.

The space

Your modern kitchen is stocked for your arrival breakfast with farm fresh eggs, homemade bread, artisan jams and all amenities. You just need to fill your grocery basket at one of the two stores a 10-15 minute walk away. Enjoy breakfast beside the ocean and stone-grill or cedar plank your daily catch on the deck side barbecue for dinner.

Guest access

Your retreat is fully private from the remainder of our home. A spotting scope provides you with intimate views of eagles, seals, bird life and boats cruising in and out of nearby Queen Charlotte harbour. The private view is hedged by Italian plum trees, windswept craggy cedars and the gorgeous Pacific Ocean.

The hosts make up a pleasantly refined couple, were simplicity is accompanied by true care and willingness to help, as we have experimented. A beautiful house, perfect for a party of up to four people, right on the sea shore. A peaceful haven, with a touch of local personality when the eagles come feasting on salmon heads right in front of you. The scenery is peacuful and full of light. The rooms are confortable, each one with an en suite bathroom - a master bath room and a smaller one. The kitchen if fully equipped, and the patio conveniently hosts a BBQ cart, useful if you are after salmons or halibuts. Jaine and Tom just built this facility. When we arrived, works were alost completed, with some external paving to do. Haida Gwaii does not offer much in terms of quality lodging. Janine and Tom's place is one exception, fully worth the money you are requested to spend.

Response from Janine & Tom:
It was wonderful to host you and your family as our first guests Roberto. We are so pleased that you were able to realize your dream of seeing the totem poles at S'Gaang Gwaay and experience the magical landscape of Haida Gwaii by float plane, ferry, Haida Style Expeditions and car. You saw so much during your week based at Skyfall Oceanside Retreat!
