Roberts Creek house description
Luxurious 1600 sq. ft. self-contained suite on ground level of waterfront home with 1 large and 1 small covered patio, open kitchen, dining and living room area with wall-mounted 46' Cable TV, gas fireplace, 2 bedrooms each with its own en suite facilities and vanities. The unit is tastefully appointed.
This unit is probably the only non-institutional truly wheelchair accessible accommodation on the Sunshine Coast - and one of very few in the greater Vancouver area - all doors are minimum 36' wide, higher than normal toilets, grab bars in the bathtub areas, and portable equipment rated to capably transporting a person up to 350 pounds between wheelchair and bed, toilet, bath, sofa, floor, etc.
It is located on over 83 feet of walk-on waterfront; the waters of Georgia Strait are literally only a few feet from your front door. This is the nicest and most popular sandy beach in Roberts Creek - and possibly the entire Sunshine Coast. It is renowned as being a relatively safe beach for children as the sandy beach slopes gradually and gently away from the beach for hundreds of feet.
A new boathouse on the property provides free secure storage for your car top rowboat, kayak, canoe, bicycle, fishing gear, etc.
This facility has been inspected and approved by the SCBBCOA.
Go to sleep at night - or wake up in the morning - to the relaxing sound of the waves lapping at the beach. Enjoy the sights and sounds of bald eagles, herons, ducks, Canada geese, woodpeckers, and other birds; the boat traffic including individuals in their canoes, kayaks and other pleasure craft, commercial fish and prawn boats, BC Ferries traveling between the mainland and Nanaimo, freighters, beachcombers, tugs towing barges or logs, cruise ships on their Vancouver/Alaska runs in season; the occasional seal, sea lion, river otter, whale and salmon in the water - and bear, deer, elk, coyotes, raccoons and other wildlife on land - all have been sighted here.
This is an ideal spot to be as active as you wish - or to just relax and commune with nature - and yet be close to all the amenities anyone could desire, including local transit service to/from Sechelt, Gibsons, the ferry terminal at Langdale, etc. The small commercial center of Roberts Creek is less than a 5 minute walk away.

Robert's Creek waterfront 2 BR spacious flat.
Robert's Creek waterfront 2 BR spacious flat.
What a fabulous place to spend any amount of time. Mike is an absolutely fabulous host - he is very accommodating and easy to work with - he is very interested in you being comfortable and having an enjoyable stay. The first thing we did upon arrival is to sit on the beachwall and try to soak in the view (impossible). We continue to have (and probably will have for a long time) great memories of the view and the relaxing atmosphere at this property. The tides come in and out and it is a good place to explore the beach. Make sure that you walk to the end of the pier at Robert's Creek (7 or 8 lots away) to enjoy the fabulous sunsets. Both bedrooms are very well equipped - bathrooms as well. When the smoke alarms 'faulted' at night, Mike was quick to apologize and remedy the problem. We used the kitchen for preparing a few of our meals. There were plenty of dishes (and a dishwasher) but the place did lack cooking utensils and pots/pans. If you are going to do any cooking from scratch it will be an adventure. If you are grilling something on the BBQ and cooking stuff in the stove, game on! Next time we are in the area we will be staying here - and we heartily recommend this place to our friends and fellow travellers. For day trips, get to the Sechelt visitors centre to get maps and a list of hiking trails in the area. We loved the Sechelt grove as well as Robert's Creek waterfall. Happy trails !

Year Purchased: 1989
About the owner: I am a native of the Vancouver area....born in Vancouver, grew up in Richmond, married a girl from Vancouver and raised our family in Richmond We became 'empty nesters' and moved to Roberts Creek in 1989.
Why the Owner Chose Roberts Creek:
My wife's extended family had a waterfront property with a rustic 2 bedroom cottage about 1 mile east from here. Her great uncle purchased that property from Union Steamships in the early 1920's - and he built the cottage. My wife spent many of her childhood summers there. My first visit to Roberts Creek was about 1966, I fell in love with the beach - and the environs - and decided this was where I wanted to eventually retire. We looked for a long time...many properties in the area became available but we were very specific in what we wanted; the choice/prime properties on 'sandy beach' seldom 'go on the market'; we waited almost 10 years - and when this one became available in 1989, we bought it. We became 'empty nesters' about this time - all 3 of our children moved out within a year - so before they had a chance to move back in, we moved out! I was fortunate and able to get a (work) transfer to this area about the time we took possession of this property, so we moved here (to the 'old' house on this property). The local 'old guard' tell me it takes 25 years of residency in Roberts Creek to be classified as a 'local' - and not just a 'summer complaint'; by that definition, next year I will finally become a local - or 'Creeker'.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
My wife, Kathie, was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer in 2002 - and told she had 6-8 months. Through her attitude, clinical trials, continuous chemotherapy, surgical heroics and perseverance, she lasted over 8 years. I retired in early 2003 to support, spend time and work on her 'bucket list'. One of her items on her 'bucket list' was for me to build - and us to live in - a new architecturally designed wheelchair accessible home...I still call it her 'Taj Mahal'. (I wanted a 1500sq. ft. bungalow - she got her wish; an almost 3400 sq ft mansion.) So we had the existing home moved back about 75 feet, made some modifications to it, and had all overhead services (Hydro, Tel and Cable) placed underground. I spent much of the next 3 1/2 years building this large, luxurious home for her (there were several delays - as travel was also on her 'bucket list'; she loved cruising - and wanted to visit every continent before she left this world - and she did that too!...we went to the last one, Antarctica, 8 months before she passed away). She also realized her dream of living in her 'Taj Mahal' - for over 2 1/2 years before her demise. The name Kamile is partially in her memory: KA - for Kathie; MI - for Mike; and LE for Lesik. I know you will thoroughly enjoy your stay - and continue to make Kamile Waterfront Retreat 'your vacation destination'!!
