Property description

Tranquility awaits you, at this seaside home, a 40 minute ferry ride from Vancouver, British Columbia. Take an early morning, invigorating swim, in the ocean, enjoy a romantic beach fire at night, delight in the sunset on the large deck whilst watching eagles fly overhead or watch for a pod of porpoises swim by.

Whether you are sitting at the dining room table, curled up on the couch or even laying in bed, you will enjoy the spectacular views of the beach. There is plenty of outdoor seating, for your family and friends, to share a barbeque, while taking in the breathtaking sunset.

Located right on the beach, with a bird sanctuary next to it, you can check out the many species of birds such as bald eagles, trumpeter swans, search for seashells or go fishing, or crabbing. The kitchen is stocked with everything, except food and a chef of course, laundry facilities on site. Hike, swim, kayak and explore or just kick back and watch the waves roll in.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: Avid nature fan, well travelled Vancouverite, now living on the Sunshine Coast in this wondrous beach house with my partner. We have had very good fortune in our travels, and stayed at some wonderful places, from Columbia to Hungary, and more.

Why the Owner Chose Sechelt:
We fell for this rare home, and beach,with so much light and privacy, and birds, and well, beauty all round. The estuary nearby provides for some very good birding, and fabulous hiking in old growth forests. Great kayaking, just carry it down to our private beach, and off you go!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is no place quite as peaceful as sitting on the deck listening to the eagles fly over head and the ocean waves gently hitting the shore. We've travelled a lot but rarely see a sunset like you see from our beach here in Salish Cottage. with such a lot of land in front of us, it's totally private.
