About Us

Meet Jan & Shelley

Whether a road trip, camping/canoeing trip; trips by air or on the water in our classic wooden boat, we love to travel.  And as travellers, we love the ease of staying in other homes/apartments.  It offers a warmer, more personal and local experience. 

We invite you to experience the Wild West Coast of Vancouver Island (Port Renfrew) and warmly welcome you to Bjørn Holm. We appreciate a thoughtfully equipped property with hosts who understand travellers’ needs.  Let us provide this for you. 

As first-time hosts, Jan and I have spent the first year detailing our cottage so you can enjoy Wild Port Renfrew as much as we do. We have the pleasure of slipping away in our lovely 1957 Classic Wooden Power Boat during the summer months and enjoying Bjorn Holm during the off-season.

My husband (born in Denmark) and I (born in British Columbia) have lived and worked together for 40+ years selling custom, quality lumber and wood flooring at West Wind Hardwood Inc; located in Sidney (Vancouver Island), BC, Canada.  We have two adult girls.  One lives locally and the other lives far, far away in Perth, Australia with our beautiful granddaughter.

Our bucket list is still full of adventures yet to be lived.
