Ben & Jan and their fur family

Our story

Much like many other ‘imports’ to the Island, your Texada AirBNB hosts Ben and Jan discovered the area while vacationing in Lund (north of Powell River, the “end of the road”). They just wanted to explore an Island they hadn’t heard of before.  Everything clicked!  The stunning location, the laid-back pace and the phenomenon of a largely unknown piece of paradise in a climate ideal for outdoor enthusiasts. (Here’s a list of some of our favourite island activities.)

Living our dream vacation

Instead of pursuing an avenue of owning a vacation property and longing to visit as much as possible, Ben and Jan thought – why not live their vacation??  They made the leap – they found their forever home, found employment and found the perfect pace of life.  Feeling so fortunate to be able to enjoy such an amazing location in a luxury setting, they had an incredible pull to share it with others.

We love rescue pets

Ginger is Ben and Jan’s adorable rescue dog.  She has 2 rescue cat brothers who can be seen enjoying their oceanview catio (which is viewable from BJ’s on the Beach).  Rescue animals are dear to Ben and Jan and that’s why they offer a $10/night discount for any guest that brings a rescue pet. View our Pet Policy.

Ben and Jan follow a plant-based diet and are therefore committed to an animal product free accommodation for guests.
