Where you’ll be

Sunshine Coast A, British Columbia, Canada

- Egmont is a small quintessential coastal community. Downtown is one square block, with a historic general store where you can pick up any last minute snacks or drinks, a museum and thrift store.

- Out There is a private island, approximately 30 mins by boat from Egmont. The island has a large protected bay and a beautiful tombolo that connects to Nelson Island at low tide.

- 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.

- For the more adventurous, we can help organise boat tours of the surrounding inlets and the spectacular Freil Falls, one of the tallest in BC, best viewed in spring and fall.

- Known locally as "The Chuck", the Skookumchuck 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.

- The warm shallow waters of the protected bay are perfect for swimming and snorkelling, (masks available) and SUP.

- To maximise relaxation we have beach chairs, shaded hammocks, a selection of board games and book library

- Out There is surrounded by spectacular marine and wildlife landscapes. Seals, sea lions, bald eagles, and chipmunks are regular visitors and the kelp beds are teeming with sea-life. Don't forget your camera!

- Depending on the season you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of orcas and dolphins.

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.
