Private guests

SPECIAL NOTICE: Read about the 2016 drought - things you need to know before arriving.

Although most people visit The Haven to participate in in our educational programs, you may also enjoy our simple, comfortable environment as a private guest. We will not pamper you - no valet parking, room service, or chocolate on your pillow - but nature likely will.

Accommodations range from rustic cabins tucked away among the trees to suites overlooking quiet coastline waters. You will feel far from the hustle and bustle of the city, even though Gabriola Island is only 20 minutes by ferry from Nanaimo, or a 20 minute float plane ride from Vancouver. Facilities include a year-round ocean-view hot tub, an outdoor swimming pool (seasonal), fitness gym, children’s play area, games room and on-site massage and other bodywork.

While you are here, take a walk on beachfront trails, visit local art galleries and shops, soak in our ocean-view hot tub, participate in morning yoga and movement, or slide into a comfortable chair to catch up on some reading.
