Other things to note

FAQs:
DO YOU HAVE ELECTRICTIY? - Out There is designed to take advantage of BC's temperate rainforest climate. We harvest solar and wind to provide all of our power, and also have a back up generator. Please be mindful to conserve energy, turn lights off, charge devices during daylight hours.

DO YOU HAVE RUNNING WATER? - Our water system is a combination of well water from a solar powered pump and rainwater harvesting. All water in the main Yurt is filtered and potable. All wash room facilities have been designed to conserve water and feature showers, composting toilets. Our grey water system is sensitive, and bio degradable toiletries are provided.

CAN WE BRING OUR OWN FOOD? - We are aiming for zero waste and have limited refrigeration. Food provided is healthy, grown, caught, harvested from the beach or bought locally. We cater for allergies or food preferences. Guests are welcome to BYO food, snacks, beer, wine, but should avoid bringing garbage, pack out what ever you pack in and leave no trace. All recycling is donated to the Egmont Community Hall.

ACCESSIBILITY? - On arrival at the private dock, there are obvious "deer trails" and some magical driftwood stairs and railings that lead you around the island. Please note that the terrain is steep and rocky in areas and is not suitable for people with limited mobility. It is a short steep hike up to the yurt on the highest point of the island, to take full advantage of the incredible 360 ocean and mountain views. What goes up must come down, so its a hike down again to the tent and to the beach. Make sure you pack light, and think of it as free exercise!

WHAT SHOULD WE BRING? Try and pack light for your trip as you have to haul your gear up to the yurt and tent. We pretty much have guaranteed summers July through August, but the shoulder seasons can be rainy. We do live in a rain forest after all! Things to consider are: a light rain jacket; suitable outdoor footwear; water shoes; quick dry clothes; swimming gear; a good book; sunscreen & bug spray (no chemicals please); water bottle, and don't forget your camera.

AVAILABILITY? - If this listing is booked, please check our individual listings for private rooms.

WHAT TIME CAN WE ARRIVE? - We normally pick up at 2:00PM at the Government Dock in Egmont, unless prior arrangement is made. Local water taxi's are available for arrivals after 6:00PM - additional fees apply.

SPECIAL REQUESTS? - we do not have rooms with extra beds or cots. There is a maximum of 2 people per room.

If you are looking at this place, don't think about it, just BOOK IT! My husband, myself, and our small dog spent four days here in paradise, or as Andy likes to call it, "Hippie Alcatraz," and we had an amazing time! Andy and Liz are so incredibly accommodating and lovely, and we couldn't have imagined a better place to spend our anniversary vacation. Their yurt and tent cabin are incredible, the beds are beyond comfortable, the family style meals are delicious and beautifully prepared, and the location is nothing short of stunning! This was exactly what we need to rest and recharge - and Lucy our Boston Terrier loved it too! What Andy and Liz have created is truly inspiring, and it is a unique experience that is not to be missed. Read, relax, beach comb, dig for fresh oysters and clams, kayak, paddle board, sleep, eat, hike, or just lay in front of the wood burning stove - the options are endless! Thank you Liz and Andy for a fantastic vacation! We'll be back soon :).

My husband and I truly made the right choice booking a 3 night stay at Liz and Andy's. The yurt is beautiful, the island is peaceful, the views are unreal! We kayaked, paddle boarded, played cards on the deck in the sun, and enjoyed tasty meals cooked by our friendly hosts. We spent 8 nights in the BC area and the 3 at this place were some of our best times. Thanks for sharing your amazing home it was a great experience that we will never forget!

One of the most beautiful places I've been to anywhere in the world... so much better than I could have imagined with, of course, perfect hospitality.

We had the best 3 days at Andy & Liz's! If you are looking to unwind and recharge, this is the spot! Andy & Liz were amazing hosts! The food was absolutely delicious, with unreal fresh salads grown from their garden and even a pizza night using their outdoor pizza oven. We also had endless oysters fresh off the beach! So excited to book again next summer!

This is literally a one-of-a-kind experience! I'd been stressed from work and wanted someplace off the grid. I'd never been to the Sunshine Coast and this was the best introduction! The food is AMAZING. Every night they make you a gourmet meal! Plus, you can harvest oysters every day when the tide goes out. DREAMY. Would highly recommend and want to go back!

Enchantment. That is what you will find here, and healing. Connect with the creation around you, with yourself, and with quality people. Andy and Liz have created a splendidly unique experience where you can get off the grid in the heart of BC's fjords. It is The Burrows meets Rivendell. Gaze into the sea while lying in a hammock, strung between arbutus. Swim with sea otters, enjoy fresh oysters, or kayak your day away, or just be, it is your choice. Food? Enjoy a well-stocked kitchen and a wonderfully-prepared evening meal that will satisfy your taste buds and your appetite. Out There is clean, cozy, welcoming, and really out there - away from the rat race. A unique experience.

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.
