Welcome to Surfside

First choice accommodations for island visitors and explorers

Welcome to the Surfside Motel! Open year round, our family-owned accommodation is situated on five beautiful acres of beachfront property. We cater to families, tour groups, contractors, businesspeople, independent travellers, and adventure seekers alike. Located near the ferry dock in the village of North Head, we are within walking distance of many local amenities and attractions.

We offer fresh coffee in the office lobby each morning during the summer months, and our friendly and knowledgeable staff will be happy to provide you with maps and information on local eating establishments, special events, island activities and tours, and places of interest. The popular Farmer’s Market takes place just across the road every Saturday from July to mid September, and the fabulous Summer’s End Folk Festival is held on our lawn each August. Barbecues are available in the backyard for our guests’ use, and spectacular Stanley’s Beach is just a quick walk across our expansive lawn.

Our rooms each have a television, microwave, bar fridge, phone, free wifi and private bath. Our three housekeeping cottages and apartment have a living room, bedroom(s) and fully-equipped kitchen. We guarantee you’ll be impressed by the cleanliness of our rooms, the hospitality of our staff, and the beauty of our spectacular scenery!  For rates, click here.

We are a fully non-smoking establishment. Regretfully, we do not accommodate pets and apologize for any inconvenience this may present.  We request that you advise us if you will be arriving on the late ferry at 10:30 PM, so we can arrange for your check-in at that time. We look forward to sharing our piece of island paradise with you! Thanks very much, and enjoy your stay!
