                  Car: Necessary

                  Blue Orca Cottage is located at the very end of Orca Road at Daniel Point. Daniel Point is the long narrow Peninsula shown on the map. We are the last property on the culdesac. Madeira Park, a vibrant marine community is nearby and has all you will need for supplies and Village activities. The Cottage is steps away from Daniel Point Marine Park for stellar hikes and views. No need to leave your deck though, the views are even better from your comfortable deck chairs! Boating, boat or float plane tours, diving, hiking, birdwatching, storm watching, swimming, fishing, golfing, music festivals, art tours, star gazing or simply enjoying the fascinating boat traffic are favorite activities in the area.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: My husband Kent and I have recently retired to our dream life on beautiful B.C.'s Sunshine Coast. I was a high school art teacher and now am an artist and jewelry designer. Kent, a retired member of the Vancouver Police Department is constantly occupied with the care and up-keep of our home, cottage, and grounds. Our home sits on an acre waterfront lot overlooking some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world. We look forward to sharing this amazing place with many guests. Welcome!

                  Why the Owner Chose Garden Bay:
                  We built our cottage (carriage house) first and lived there while our main home was being built. We chose this location because it was simply the most beautiful place we had ever seen. We have travelled many places but believe nothing compares to Daniel Point! It may be off the beaten track for some but that is why we love it here!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  The sunsets are unforgettable! Wildlife abounds all around; multiple pairs of eagles have a nests close by, daily deer sightings are not uncommon. Explore amazing volcanic rock formations and tidal pools with a myriad of sea creatures just down a set of steps to Daniel Point Marine Park at the end of our driveway.Pods of Orca Whales as well as large schools of feeding dolphins are spectacular sights from time to time. The star filled night skies will take your breath away!
