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.

WHAT TIME CAN WE ARRIVE? - We normally pick up at between 3-5pm at the Government Dock in Egmont, unless prior arrangement is made. Local water taxi's are available for arrivals after 5pm - additional fees apply.

RESERVATIONS? - financial transactions, date changes, cancellations and refunds can be managed directly through your own Airbnb account. We do not have access to your payment data and cannot cancel your reservation on your behalf.

SPECIAL REQUESTS? - we do not have rooms with extra beds or cots. There is a maximum of 2 people per room.

Sunshine Coast A, British Columbia, Canada

- Out There is 23 a 3 acre private island and a beautiful tombolo connecting to Nelson Island at low tide. There is a whole network of logging roads on Nelson Island that can be accessed for hiking.

- Views overlook five waterways, Jervis Inlet, Agamemnon Channel, Agnew Passage, Hotham Sound and Sechelt Inlet.

- The area is a Mecca for marine and outdoor recreational activities including boating, fishing, kayaking, shallow diving, diving, hiking, swimming and endless shoreline to explore.

- Known locally as "The Chuck", the rapids provide a powerful show of whirlpools, or turbulent standing waves that attract thrill seeking extreme kayakers from around the world. Its an easy hour long hike from Egmont.

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.
