About Us

Meet Shelley & Jan

We love to travel: whether a road trip, camping/canoeing trip; trips by air or on the water in our classic wooden boat.  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 past year detailing our cottage so you will enjoy Wild Port Renfrew as much as we do.   Consequently, we stayed close to home.  We did slip away in July, boating to the Broughton Archipelago in our lovely 1957 Classic Wooden Power Boat – our fourth visit to this marine park.  Good weather; lots of wildlife sightings; fabulous scenery.

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 new grand-daughter.

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