We, like many others, generally book next year's stay when checking out. I don't camp so we rent a 2-bdrm cottage. Over the years the owners have made tremendous improvements both inside and out... full-size appliances in the kitchen, covered cedar deck, major "green" infrastructure projects, they've now installed a water filtration system which takes care of the water pressure "problem". The location is perfect for us... hubby and son scuba dive right off the rocks or rent a boat at the marina, a well-stocked general store (lots of organic products) with great coffee and fresh-baked croissants at 8am and fresh-baked pizza later in the day, video rentals, there's a small art supplies/gallery on the property (why not... google Hornby Island artists and be blown away by the number and variety of studios). It's a 20 minute drive from the ferry terminal, 10 minutes to town , quiet but not too quiet, friendly staff. One thing... if you're driving a large RV I wouldn't recommend it, the road is narrow into the cove and the property doesn't suit turning a huge vehicle around.
