About the owner: "Mostly" retired couple (businessman and writer) with two aged cats, live nearby, love this forested acreage on the beach where you can relax, write, paint, read, walk, golf, explore. He grew up in Vancouver, she in Powell River, up the coast. Lived in Hong Kong for 20 years then moved here. It's so nice to be settled on the west coast!
Why the Owner Chose Sechelt: We live nearby, the property is five minutes from Sechelt but is very private with big trees behind and beach in front. Imagined writing and relaxing, cooking over the fire pit, going for a run or renting a kayak nearby, driving or walking to the popular provincial campground nearby at Porpoise Bay, or going to the many local artists in the area who put up a purple flag at their driveways to show they are open for busines.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: The sandy beach is great for swimming and shelling. Love sitting out on the large lawn watching the float planes come in or the birds and eagles bathe in the freshwater stream nearby. The fire pit is great for outdoor cooking and evening relaxing while the sun sets.
