Highwater House

Accommodations and Tours

Danny and Nika knew they had a stunning ocean front property within Naikoon Park and took their time considering the needs of the location. “It is such a beautiful site,” said Danny, “that a standard house would have been an injustice.” Danny and Nika were lucky to find the right builder who helped them build Highwater House, a beautiful elevated dwelling that matches the unique oceanside location. Highwater House, also known as Sk’wa Kansgad Naay, was a labour of love with beautiful results.

Danny and Nika used local materials wherever possible such as logs off the beach that were milled for the big support posts and salvaged old windows from a logging camp for the kitchen cabinets. They know they succeeded in really showcasing the beauty of the location.

Just a ten-minute drive from Masset, Highwater House is available for rent year round!

Meet Danny Robertson & Nika Collison

Danny first came to Haida Gwaii to work as an outdoor guide. In 1999, while working as a kayak guide in the wilds of Gwaii Haanas, he met Nika and they fell in love. They decided to live on Haida Gwaii, Nika's home.

Together they have two daughters and when not busy managing Highwater House or their other business, Highlander Marine, they enjoy spending time together as a family exploring their island home. "The Sangan River," said Danny, "is a long-winding, low-lying river that's peaceful and beautiful to explore by walking along the banks or canoeing."

They love Haida Gwaii. "There is a sense of community which is particularly strong because of our isolation from the mainland. There are opportunities to interact and develop relationships with people who you might not normally have a chance to in a larger center," said Danny.
