Property description

This funky, newly renovated guest home is your place to relax. The 'Blue House' backs on to Masset inlet and is home to raccoon, kingfishers, cranes, herons, swans, deer and friendly local characters. It has a very open design, and ocean views from most windows. It is furnished with antiques and oddities, including a wood cook stove that is 100 years old, and Chinese pieces from the same time.
A funky, well equipped, kitchen includes dishwasher, stove and fridge for cooking up your catch of the day: crabs, clams, fish, deer or berries
You can launch canoe's and kayak's from your own back yard and paddle to Juskatla Narrows, a pristine and ecologically rich area.
The gardens include many indigenous plants and lichens, and lots of comfortable spaces to sit and be.
The master bedroom has a clawfoot tub, from which you can watch the hours long sunsets that Port Clements is famous for. Bedroom # 2 has a queen sized bed and tons of room to stash your stuff. There is also a 6.5 foot long leather couch that is great to sleep on and tons of space for cots or mats.

The Blue House is a block from the long dock, which is set up for fishing right off the dock. Crab and prawns live in the inlet and you can cook them up in the back yard. The general store is half a block away and is reputed to be the best produce on island. Local growers offer organic produce and there seems to be berries to pick all season.

Centrally located, the Blue House is perfect for exploring the island. Port Clements is the gateway to the wilderness, with access to the west side of the island and Rennell Sound. It is 40 minutes to North Beach for swimming and surfing, dip netting crab, beach combing, and incredibly lush-with-life tide pools. Go south 20 minutes to Tlell and local gift stores, farmers markets and beautiful sandy beaches.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: All my life I longed for a home on the ocean, so I was thrilled when my career offered an opportunity to transfer to Haida Gwaii. 8 years after arriving, I retired from my social work career and focused on building my first two ocean view guest suites. The success of these ventures made it possible to buy and renovate an ocean side dream home. My 3 adult children visit often with their children. Haida Gwaii tempts them with surfing, old growth forests, the secure sense in our small town and the pristine environment of the temperate rain forest. Also, they get to visit their grandma, who came to Haida Gwaii with me and stayed. She is the lovely blond in the owner photo with me, and was celebrating her 83rd in the Blue House, when an impromptu jam broke out with one of the carpenters.
