                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      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!
