    We had an AMAZING 2019 season! We had 6 guest visit us in Haida Gwaii each one was perfect! We are looking forward to our 2020 season.

    Crazy family of 8 🤣 Live in beautiful sunny Sandspit BC Canada right on the ocean! Lots of beaches, hiking and wilderness. Sandspit is the gateway to Gwaii Haanass National park, world famous Salmon and halibut fishing ( and we can get you out there!) ( Google Sandspit BC Haida Gwaii 🇨🇦 ) Sandspit is always on the top of the top 10 places to visit and on many personal bucket lists! Our tiny quaint town has a golf course, grocery store, post office, restaurants, bar, library, gym and airport. There are no chain restaurants movie theatres or malls, it’s amazing. We have a small hobby farm of chickens pigs and sheep. We have 6 children ages 17,15,12,5,3 & 2 all super cute!! My husband works full time and I’m a stay a home mom.
