Your Home for Adventure in Haida Gwaii

You look up and see an eagle. You look across the water and an Orca glides into view.

  • You experience remote, windswept beaches,
  • discover ancient totems guarding lush rainforests,
  • or land the biggest fish you’ve ever seen.

Experience the magic of Haida Gwaii from your private home base: a comfortable, three-bedroom vacation retreat which is equipped with all amenities and entirely yours.
Out your front door is the world’s best halibut and salmon fishing, easily accessed through our exclusive fishing charter service. This service can include overnight trips as well.

Out your back door is the abundant wildlife of a tidal marsh and nature sanctuary. Spring and fall brings a bird watcher’s paradise. The Haida Village of Old Masset with its totem poles and native artists is next door and all the amenities of Masset – shopping, marina, restaurants and more – are steps away.

Experience breathtaking natural beauty and rich culture

Haida Gwaii – which means Place of the People – is the traditional name for an extended archipelago of 140 islands bordering the northwest coast of British Columbia, Canada.
Also known in the past as the Queen Charlotte Islands, this unique region is served by plane and ferry, yet remains remote enough to retain its natural beauty. Campers, kayakers, fishermen, beachcombers, hikers, hunters, wildlife enthusiasts, photographers and other adventurers are all drawn to these islands. In 2005, the region’s Gwaii Haanas National Park was chosen as the foremost park destination in North America by National Geographic Traveller Magazine.

For many visitors, a major attraction is the renaissance of the native Haida culture, one of the richest, most complex and artistically gifted native societies in North America.
