Meet Geoff Ray
Geoff Ray and his family have been residents of Haida Gwaii since 1976. Originally Geoff didn’t envision and long-term stay, but as life began to settle down within the community, the Rays quickly realized Queen Charlotte was where they were meant to be. “It’s the most vibrant community, it has the most stability and feels cosmopolitan and it also has a southern exposure,” boasts Geoff.
Many days are spent hiking the trails nearby, or exploring the inter-tidal areas and all the life flourishing within them. Living in Haida Gwaii has provided the Ray family with a back-to-basics lifestyle emulating so much peace and tranquillity. “I see the islands serving a vital need to experience a less institutionalized environment,” states the Breezeway owner.
It was in 2006 that Geoff noticed a need for added accommodation spaces for visitors. He filled that gap by creating the infrastructure necessary right from scratch and has enjoyed the process of building his business on his own terms. Geoff has always been handy and resourceful having worked as a carpenter for many years. Now the entrepreneur runs two businesses: Breezeway Accommodations and Auto Island Rentals.
