Other things to note

FAQs:
DO YOU HAVE ELECTRICTIY? - Out There is designed to take advantage of BC's temperate rainforest climate. We harvest solar and wind to provide all of our power, and also have a back up generator. Please be mindful to conserve energy, turn lights off, charge devices during daylight hours.

DO YOU HAVE RUNNING WATER? - Our water system is a combination of well water from a solar powered pump and rainwater harvesting. All water in the main Yurt is fresh filtered and potable. All wash room facilities have been designed to conserve water and feature showers, composting toilets. Our grey water system is sensitive, and bio degradable toiletries are provided.

CAN WE BRING OUR OWN FOOD? - We are aiming for zero waste and have limited refrigeration. Food provided is healthy, grown, caught, harvested from the beach or bought locally. We cater for allergies or food preferences. Guests are welcome to BYO food, snacks, beer, wine, but should avoid bringing garbage, pack out what ever you pack in and leave no trace. All recycling is donated to the Egmont Community Hall.

ACCESSIBILITY? - On arrival at the private dock, there are obvious "deer trails" and some magical driftwood stairs and railings that lead you around the island. Please note that the terrain is steep and rocky in areas and is not suitable for people with limited mobility. It is a short steep hike up to the yurt on the highest point of the island, to take full advantage of the incredible 360 ocean and mountain views. What goes up must come down, so its a hike down again to the tent and to the beach. Make sure you pack light, and think of it as free exercise!

WHAT SHOULD WE BRING? Try and pack light for your trip as you have to haul your gear up to the yurt and tent. We pretty much have guaranteed summers July through August, but the shoulder seasons can be rainy. We do live in a rain forest after all! Things to consider are: a light rain jacket; suitable outdoor footwear; water shoes; quick dry clothes; swimming gear; a good book; sunscreen & bug spray (no chemicals please); water bottle, and don't forget your camera.

AVAILABILITY? - If this listing is booked, please check our individual listings for private rooms.

Having stayed with Andy and Liz before on a number of occasions, we knew when we got engaged that this was the place we wanted to get married. The island was the perfect setting for our big day the way we wanted it. Andy and Liz were as ever extremely hospitable and accommodating and we are honoured to call them friends and have them there celebrating with us. We will continue to recommend Andy and Liz's place to everyone we meet, it really is a piece of paradise and they are incredible people (& hosts) 3

We loved our time on magical East Point Island with Andy, Liz and Nina. A stunning location, and an extraordinary home - thank you for allowing us to share it with you for a few days. Great beauty, great food and great company - what else could you ask for. Thanks guys!!

Amazing, amazing experience!!! The island is beautiful, the views spectacular, and the low impact housing that Liz and Andy have built is wonderful; very comfortable and finished with beautiful touches - like the driftwood reclaimed to make the stair railings. Andy and Liz were very helpful and friendly, and the dinners they cooked were delicious, and tailored to our preferences. Superb! The food provided by them for other meals is plentiful and varied. The main house is beautifully built and very comfortable and spacious, but the tent was the highlight for us - spectacular views and isolation with the only noisy neighbours being seals playing the sea below! We had fun swimming, SUP'ing and kayaking in the secluded bay; nice and calm for newbie kayakers like us. We cannot recommend too highly, we just had a fantastic time! AMAZING!

Hand made with love by your hosts Andy, Liz & adopted dog Nina, along with a whole bunch of friends and family, Out There was dreamed up from a desire to jump off the mouse wheel, escape the cage, run for the hills and find our wild!

We were magically drawn into the breathtaking beauty of Egmont, Jervis Inlet and specifically Nelson Island. Sure enough, our dream property was right there waiting for us. As one of our guests described it, serendipity found.

After many years of saving, planning, observing, learning, repeat, Out There began to take shape in the summer of 2012. Our dream was to create a rustic but luxurious off-grid oasis designed to take advantage of BC's temperate rainforest by harvesting rainwater, solar and wind power. Our main goal was to "fit in" and leave minimal impact on the surrounding environment.

For us, its all about making memories and we hope Out There provides an inspirational back-drop for your own wilderness adventures.
