Halfmoon Bay cottage description

Ten oceanfront acres await you in Halfmoon Bay! The Boathouse sits literally ON the water's edge nestled on a secluded cove and surrounded by beautiful woods. Awake with the resident eagles, gulls, ducks and otters playing in the flow of the babbling creek in the bay below. Sip your tea on the deck while watching the cove come alive.

You WIll have easy access for swimming, sunning, fishing and paddling in either of our rowboats or your own vessel. Take the trails for an easy tour of the property and hike to the high bluff to watch the spectacular sunsets. Whatever your favorite way to relax, indulge!

You WIll feel right at home with a fully-equipped, kitchen and all the comfortable amenities. Try your luck at catching dinner - or let the local fishermen do the catching - and have a true West coast seaside barbeque over the open firepit and grill. Yummmm!

Once you reach Sunset Cove, you will never want to leave. But, be sure to explore all the wonderful things that the Sunshine Coast has to offer. Countless and varied hiking and biking trails take you to magical places impossible to see from your car. Bring your kayaks, canoes, or boat (or rent them nearby) to see the coast, inlets and lakes by water.

Or, bring your clubs and play a round of golf on the local links. If you like exploring indoors, the coast is home to many artists who display their work in public and private galleries. Discover the history of the area in the local museums or visit the Chapman Creek Fish Hatchery and learn about spawning salmon.

Perfect for a memorable romantic getaway, a lone traveler's hideout or a small family or group of friends, the Boathouse is the ideal place for you to find peace and serenity and a home base from which to recreate in your own way.

                  Central location to all points on the Sunshine Coast yet secluded enough to 'get away from it all'. Close to Skookumchuk Rapids, miles of hiking, boating and paddling in the sea or fresh water, fishing, golf, local eats and arts ... all within a few miles of Sunset Cove!


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About the owner: We fell in love with the Sunshine Coast on our first visit, September 2000. The surrounding nature, the small-town feel, the people ... the blackberries ... it was all wonderful!

                  Why the Owner Chose Halfmoon Bay:
                  When we first saw this beautiful property, we peeked in the window of the cottage and made a commitment to do whatever we could to have this little piece of paradise. So, we ran home and sold everything we owned and now we're able to share it with everyone who visits.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  For us, as soon as we turn off the Sunshine Coast Hwy. onto our long, winding driveway, there's an immediate sense of calm and relaxation as we're drawn through the trees and down to the water's edge. We love the sound of the flowing creek coming from the mountains behind us into the bay below, the room to roam over the ten acres and the local wildlife that come to play in the cove.
