Bird's Nest is located in one of the most beautiful, private areas on the Sunshine Coast. The home faces southwest with fabulous views of beautiful sunsets and open sky. It is a perfect getaway for boaters, kayakers, or just a break from life, to rejuvenate your soul! There is a dock in front of the house on the water for you to use! If you have a kayak or canoe, you're welcome to bring it; there are many beautiful areas to explore here. There are also places to rent kayaks close by if you don't have your own. Thormandby Island has gorgeous white sand beaches and is only 10 minutes away by boat! You feel like your on a tropical island! Great place for a picnic, swimming, frisbee, bocce ball, or just relaxing in the sun! Simson Marine park is located on South Thormandby Island, and Jedediah Island is a half hour away which is a provincial park with an old Homestead to explore, complete with orchard, and sheep still inhabiting the island; a lovely day trip! Smugglers Cove is a ten minute drive away which has a resident beaver; volunteers have built wooden walkways above the flooded areas. After a lovely walk in the forest and through open marshland areas; you end up overlooking gorgeous bays and expansive ocean. Homesite Cave trails are close by which meanders around limestone caves and sinkholes, while also being situated amongst a second old growth forest and waterfall! This is an amazing area for Mountain biking as volunteers have built many trails all over the coast for you to enjoy. Easy access to the new Suncoaster trail! These are only a few gems of the area, there are so many areas to explore! We can provide more information as requested. Look forward to your arrival!...morecollapse
ReviewsWrite a review
We stayed one night at 'Secret Coves Bird's Nest' and so wished that we stayed a week! A meticulously maintained property in a beautiful natural wonderland, right on the water. All areas of the house are well stocked, from fluffy towels for the hottub, coffee for the morning, down to butter & jam stocked in the fridge. The house itself is also very well maintained, exceptionally clean, with many new additions, not to mention so beautifully decorated. We used both the hottub & the fireplace, each item adding to the romantic feel of the night. Our hosts were gracious, warm & welcoming, ready to attend to our every need & question. Approximately a 15 minute drive into Sechelt, we felt close to all amenities. Mind you, we didn't really need amenities, just basking in the natural beauty of the house & the property was the real treat!

About the owner: Trev and Laurie both love this private gem on the Sunshine Coast and would love to share it with you! Laurie was born and raised on the Sunshine Coast and really enjoys the beauty, nature and sense of community on the Sunshine Coast. Trevors family has owned property in Secret Cove since the 1970's and really enjoys the outdoors and fishing in the area.
Why the Owner Chose Halfmoon Bay:
This is such a unique piece of property. You are close to the ocean and an expansive sky. Part of this property has been owned by Trevor's family since the 70's and it is so beautiful and peaceful here. When we had the opportunity to buy the rest of the property, we felt lucky to have the opportunity.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with the expansive sky, the ocean, the wildlife, and sense of peace here. It is truly unique with no traffic noise, only boats, and sealife. When we saw a stellar sea lion playing with a salmon in the ocean in front of the house, we were captivated!
