Centrally located on the south end of Cortes Island close to Mansons Lagoon and Smelt Bay, Moonhill is the perfect spot to relax and a great starting point to explore Cortes. The guesthouse consists of a large furnished studio space with a queen and futon bed as well as full kitchen. The upstairs bedroom suite has a balcony and en-suite bathroom and laundry facilities are on premises. Moonhill has lots of outdoor space to relax in, and the property is forested with a vibrant ecology.

The space

The two story guesthouse has an upstairs suite with a large deck, queen bed and en-suite bathroom (toilet, sink and shower). It has a downstairs studio space with a spacious furnished lounge area as well as one double bed and double futon. The downstairs has a fully equipped kitchen, which holds a full sized fridge and stove. The upstairs and downstairs are separated by outside stairs, and through a short covered walkway there is additional access to a large shared bathroom, holding a large shower, jacuzzi tub, toilet and sink. There are laundry facilities on premises and Wifi. Guest guest bikes are available, and there is plenty of space to relax in the yard. Enjoy the outdoor picnic table, swing in a hammock or have lunch in the gazebo.

Guest access

Guests rent the whole guesthouse for their stay and have a separate entrance. They have access to a shared common room that has an additional bathroom with large shower, jacuzzi tub as well as toilet and sink. The laundry room is next door to it, and all is easy access by a covered walkway at the side of the guesthouse that joins on to the common room. There is lots of space on the property to roam and relax.

Moonhill is a peaceful and friendly place and we hope our guests will respect the space and the natural surroundings. During peak summer months we ask guests practice good water conservation principles to insure there is enough for all during our driest seasons. Visitors are asked to respect the island-wide campfire ban in summer. Pets are negotiable and we are open to hosting well behaved furry friends. There are deer that routinely roam through the property so dogs must kept under control as not to chase them. Guests should be aware when hiking with their animals there are both wolves and cougar on island and to keep their animals close.

Romina's place is so well located for visiting the island. It was our first time and we loved being so close to the community co-op, Hague lake for swimming and Smelt bay for sunsets. The house is perfectly simple and has everything you need, in a slightly different order than you might be used to. Stay here if you're relaxed (or excited) about stepping outdoors for your upstairs bedroom and bathroom, and having deer visit you at breakfast time, both key features of this lovely, nature oriented, quirky home. Romina is superbly communicative and responds promptly to all our (many!) enquiries. Our toddler loved having so much room to play. Thanks Romina for a lovely stay.

Romina’s space is beautiful, clean and greatly located, just a short walk to the Co-Op food store and Hollyhock. If you’re looking for a nice, relaxing place to stay on Cortes Island, this is it!

This was the first time we used Airbnb and every thing was just as advertised, both that process and the accommodations. Would definitely stay at Moonhill again if we went to Cortes Island. Thanks again Romina.

Romina's place is in a great location if you don't want to have to drive to everything. Shops and trails walking/biking distance from the house. She was available but wasn't intrusive and the place was charming.

We had a great stay on Cortes. Moonhill was very quiet and peaceful and so close to everything! The property was beautiful and Romina was very friendly and welcoming. The house was clean, and the beds were very comfortable. The only thing we noticed was that the pillows were in need of a good cleaning, or perhaps an upgrade. Aside from that, fantastic location, lovely host, would recommend to others!

Response from Romina:
Thanks for your feedback Cayla. I wanted to say that all pillow cases are cleaned between guests and pillows themselves regularly throughout the season. I have not bought new ones this year as I thought still in good shape so I will look to improve this aspect.
