accommodation on Haida Gwaii, Tow Hill Rd - swanky cabins on North Beach within Naikoon Park, BC, Canada
We offer five cabins on North Beach Haida Gwaii, located on the oceanside of Tow Hill Rd within Naikoon Park. All five are self-contained, off-grid — and provide so much more than the ubiquitous light switch — including easy access to a phenomenal beach.
Our first cabin/cottage is called the Sweetypie for obvious reasons. Our second cabin is named the Whale House for it's whale motif. Our third, and largest, cabin is Ravenshoe offering stupendous ocean views. The fourth, the Frogmore, is just back from the beach on a hill. The newest, completed June 2016, is the Octopus. It's tiny and lovely with a large deck. The Ravenshoe and the Sweetypie are on the beach and have unimpeded views. The Whale House, Frogmore and Octopus are all a very short walk to the beach. You'll hear the ocean, birds, frogs. Your phone will not get reception in any of our cabins but you can pick it up by going to the beach. The lower the tide the better.
Our completely self-contained off-grid (no power) cabin/cottages sit on the sand dunes of North Beach off Tow Hill Rd., about 9km before Tow Hill and 16 km past Masset. Just bring yourself, ice for the supplied cooler and something for the BBQ. Check-in at the office, it's the house on the hill.
At low tide there are razor clams to dig by the bucketful all summer, and plenty of crabs to net. Every cabin has a dedicated crab pot, and a clam shovel, should you wish. The beach is sand, and perfectly safe for kids as there are no currents or riptides. Bring your wet suits and gear or check out the local surf shop www.northbeachsurfshop.com. Because we are in the Pacific flyway for migrating birds, there are many species of shore and sea birds. The Island bird count is around 175 types, including the Sea Eagle. There are deer everywhere. Bears inhabit the island but not the beaches. Beach fires can be made at the tide line from driftwood. Wonderful sunsets and long twilight are the rule as the sun drops into the ocean.
More sandy beach than you can run in a day.
