Hornby Island’s Helliwell Bluffs Airbnb Is Something Out Of A Fairytale

hornby island

The quirkiest getaways are always the most memorable ones, and Helliwell Bluffs on Hornby Island is full of personality.

This unique accommodation on Hornby Island has so much to offer. It features one-of-a-kind architecture overlooking the serene Helliwell Park, offering spectacular views.


It’s also close to the beach so there’s lots to do in the area. But we’re pretty sure once you step inside—you won’t want to leave.

It may look small from the outside; but it can actually sleep up to five guests, with three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. The 1300 square-foot house is nestled on grassy oak grove meadowlands and even has an outdoor bathtub, a fireplace, heated stone floors and outside bathtub.

The best part about this getaway is that there are lots of animals surrounding the whole area. Guests can often spot deer, minks, otters and soaring birds like eagles, hawks and the occasional owl right from the living room.

During the night, you can also watch the full moon, or the brewing storm from the bedroom.
