Sechelt house description

The BeachHouse is a worldclass luxury oceanfront vacation home. Situated on a pristine and private 1/2 acre with 150 feet of waterfront on BC's Sunshine Coast. The home is architecturally designed to capture spectacular sunsets and ocean views from every room in the house. Snorkel with the seals, kayak in protected waters or walk among old growth forests.

                          Imagine taking a stunning ferry ride to another world where the pace is slow, the scenery is breathtaking and the people are friendly. While only a 40-minute ferry ride from Vancouver, the Sunshine Coast is one of BC's best kept secrets. With many quaint, tiny coastal communities, it's a pacific paradise of quirky waterfront shops, friendly people and an easygoing lifestyle

                          From strolling the windswept seashore; hiking into Skookumchuk Narrows, or sailing up Princess Louisa Inlet, visitors find it hard to shake the inescapable feeling that they're in on a secret the rest of the travelling world has yet to discover… and it’s less than an hour from Vancouver.

                          Other Activities: Boating, Cross Country Skiing, Golf, tennis court, birdwatching, Kayaking, Wildlife Viewing, Shopping, Health/Beauty Spa

                          About: Barbara and Fred have owned the property for over 20 years. Four years ago we invited our son, Shaun, who is a local home builder to build our dream home in classic west coast style. You will notice from the many artifacts within our home that we have worked and visited many places around the world. This multi cultural environment is reflected in every room. We are delighted to share our home with special guests.

                          Why Sechelt:
                          Our property provides everything that one could want for a truly Canadian west coast experience. The home constructed in a natural environment provides for beautiful sunsets, multi-decks and patios for lounging and enjoying the ambiance.
