Hornby Island Accommodations

Hornby Island, British Columbia, Canada is situated between the British Columbia mainland and Vancouver Island, approximately 80 miles north-west of Vancouver. Your Hornby Island vacation rental accommodations is two short ferry rides away from the east-central coastline of Vancouver Island. It is a peaceful and progressive-minded refuge for artists, bohemians, young families, urban exiles, and retirees. Conservation, cooperative community activities, participatory democracy, and volunteerism are highly valued on this green and scenic northern Gulf Island.

Hornby Island is home to a tightly knit community of about nine hundred residents and a well kept secret to thousands of visitors. Whether you're looking for a family holiday from the porch of your vacations rentals and accommodation, just one day at the beach or a permanent relocation, the resources on this site are here to help you discover Hornby Island in all its diverse and wonderfully natural beauty. Hornby Island also has more parks steps away from your lodging than any other Gulf Island including Helliwell Provincial Park, Big Tribune Provincial park Mount Geoffrey Regional Park and Fords Cove Marina.

For most of the year, Hornby's population of about 1,000 full-time residents share the magical sandstone shorelines and forested parkland with eagles, sea lions, and seabirds. Rare packs of kayakers can be spotted offshore from your vacation rental accommodations. A small but steady stream of visitors arrive with books, bikes, sketchpads and hiking boots to relax at their home away from home vacation rentals. The unplug-the-phone serenity has inspired such creative influences as the British Columbia painter Jack Shadbolt, popular British novelist Sarah Dunant, and west coast poets Billy Little and Brian Brett. Many of these artists have open studios in the summer plus they now have an artist-run gallery. While you are here visit their Recycling Centre. They were one of the first communities to initiate community recycling and visitors come from all over the world to see how they did it.

Sun lovers splash about at Tribune Bay's fabled beach (aka "Little Hawaii") minutes from your vacations rentals and accommodation. Mountain bikers careen along the groomed trails at Mount Geoffrey. Winery tasting rooms and artist studios welcome drop-ins. Hikers leave soft footfalls in oceanfront parks. And the happy hordes dine, shop and attend author readings at the Ringside Market in downtown Hornby a stones throw from your vacation rentals.
