FRESH AND CLEAN | Exceptional Hygiene. Our luxury get-a-way is nestled in a coastal cottage community; situated on a high forested bluff overlooking San Juan Bay. We offer the most amazing views of the West Coast Trail - a hike of a lifetime. Wildlife flourishes in abundance. Watch bald eagles and osprey; it is a birders’ delight. This is the magic of Bjørn Holm.

The space
We offer a luxury retreat; uniquely designed for intrepid travelers looking for real life experience West Coast-style. Experience stunning ocean views and watch as boats, kayaks and marine life pass you by. Bjørn Holm showcases original artwork and traditional carvings, custom wood work and hand-crafted furniture. Passionate about wood; every aspect charms. The beauty is in the detail. As well we offer uncompromising cleaning and hygiene - additional cleaning, sanitizing and hygiene practices in all areas with particular emphasis on high touch points and hard surfaces.

Cook with a view.
Eat with a view.
Relax with a view.

Bjørn Holm is maintained with heart and soul; the space is professionally cleaned. The home is cozy, bright and new. WiFi throughout.

Guest access
All guests have use of the entire cottage through a PIN-activated lock. There are two parking spots immediately in front. The house is on one level with 5-stairs from parking lot to front door.

We offer WiFi, Sirius/Amazon Radio and Netflix on a Smart TV with Bose Sound System, a well-stocked gourmet kitchen with full-size appliances (filtered water) and balcony barbeque. We highly recommend you download the Bose Soundtouch App to your phone or tablet. It controls Sirius/Amazon radio with such ease.

The custom bathroom with curbless shower and heated floor/towel rack offers all the traditional amenities; lots of fluffy big bath-size towels. The bedroom offers lots of desk space, a hanging cupboard with drawers; hooks galore. The queen-size bed offers quality linens and both a winter and summer duvet plus lots of pillow choices for a good night’s sleep. The beautiful painting was a custom commission by a very talented friend and accomplished artist.

The washer/dryer in the downstairs' utility room is available for extended stays of 5-days and more. Advance notice is necessary to arrange access.

Other things to note
Port Renfrew is on the edge of the wilderness. Amenities are still few. The gas station is now complete and open for business BUT TO BE SAFE please fill up your vehicle in either Sooke or Lake Cowichan.

Secondly, there is NO cell phone reception at all!!! Plan your communications. Our landline phone is for local calls and/or emergencies only.

There will be welcoming treats awaiting your arrival but we highly recommend you bring your own groceries (don't forget the liquids) and the kitchen is nicely stocked for cooks; a little bit more than the basics. Comfort the body; feed the soul.

Remember you are on the wild west coast and power fluctuations are the norm. Be prepared. We have candles and flashlights available; lots of warm blankets to cuddle and the stove cooktop is gas and can easily be manually lit for cooking BUT we have a generator available for your use that will run everything EXCEPT the dishwasher, electric baseboards and washer/dryer. A manual with "easy-to-follow" instructions is hanging by the front door shelves (right-hand side as you enter).

We are offering the basic amenities plus little luxuries that we expect in our own home. If we've neglected something, please do let us know. This is a growth opportunity for us.

Stay tuned for our 2nd bedroom in 2021. Located downstairs with separate entry, this space will have its own private deck, bathroom and some kitchen amenities.

Location

Port Renfrew, British Columbia, Canada

Port Renfrew was a resource-based community; the local wharf its hub and is now in transition. It is a relaxed, friendly village always ready to help visitors enjoy their backyard of coastal, natural wonders. We are stone's throw from the Carmanah/Walbran UNESCO biosphere, the head of the West Coast Trail and the Botanical Beach.

There is a seasonal Adventure Centre offering whale/wildlife tours, water sports (kayak/SUP) and bicycle rentals, as well, there are a multitude of local sports fishing charter boats.

Hike, fish, read, mend the soul.

We are experienced travellers and guests but are now hosting for the first time. We live in North Saanich (Vancouver Island) BC, Canada. We have lived and worked together for 38+ years selling custom, quality lumber and wood flooring at West Wind Hardwood Inc. We love to travel; whether a road trip, camping/canoeing trip; trips by air or on the water in our classic wooden boat. We have two adult girls. One lives locally and the other lives far too far away in Perth, Australia; grandparents soon to be. Our lovely 11-year old yellow lab died last year........we are in transition.
