  • Springtime at the Boathouse

    "Stayed at the Boathouse for four nights and loved it - gorgeous sweeping view of the ocean. Sheltered location; minimal wind. Stunning sunset can be viewed right from the couch through the glass doors. Very cozy feel to the place. Wood stove heats the room in a jiffy. Loved the electric heater in the bathroom. Bed was comfortable enough for a good, sound sleep. The place was quite clean and the fridge spotless. Property is great for exploring along the creek or a quick walk up to the top of the hill; Smuggler Cove is a short drive away for a longer walk. Well equipped with a few DVDs/VHS, puzzles, games, magazines, spare blankets, information about the local area. A few little things that could use improvement - mildew stains and some broken tiles around the base of the shower, the BBQ has issues but still cooked our food on the two working flames, no plastic flipper for the non-stick pans, barely-working can-opener (though the kitchen was quite well-equipped compared to other cottages we've stayed at). The larger row boat leaked quite heavily but we didn't discover this until we'd hauled it down to the water. Took it back up and tried again with the little dingy and it worked fine for a little trip to the island at the mouth of the inlet on a calm day during low tide (thankfully we don't weigh much!). There's a loud creek nearby and the inlet is really sheltered; you won't hear waves, but you'll hear the creek, which is still a lovely sound. Bring along binoculars to get better views of the various birds on the inlet and see the seals around the rocks. People also wrote in the guest book about viewing orcas and dolphins. ***Mobility Warning*** it's not just a concrete walkway to the cottage; it's a steep set of rock/concrete stairs. They're well-built, sturdy, and totally fine for most people, but for those with hip/knee issues or unsteady on their feet it could be difficult. ***OVERALL*** We loved the place in spite of the few deficiencies and would definitely go back again! It's a charming cottage perfect for a weekend of reading, painting, relaxing, napping, bird-watching, or just staring at the ocean."

  • At the Ocean's Door

    "I could not believe how exceptionally beautiful this home and location was. My family and I completely enjoyed the tranquility and comfort of this property. I don't think I have ever stayed at a place that was as near to perfect as this was. The owner's were very nice and very accommodating in helping our stay one of the best family vacations ever."

  • Sheila & Ken

    "My husband and I stayed at the "Treehouse" for three glorious nights. Because of the time of year the trees were beautiful and we used the little wood stove, which totally did the trick. The outdoor shower was great with so much hot water and the hot tub was wonderful and relaxing and the "Treehouse" was very clean. We tried the Nature Trails which were magical with all the moss on the trees and different mushrooms. Ken went canoeing everyday but I only attempted it once, which I am so glad I did. The stairs going down were great but coming up for me a bit tiresome but doable. I would totally recommend the "Treehouse" to anyone that is looking for a relaxing enjoyable time. Thank you Stephen and Ivan"

Halfmoon Bay Travel Tips

Have a Good Time in Halfmoon Bay Rentals

If you are planning a vacation to the Vancouver Region, you really cannot go wrong with Halfmoon Bay rentals. If you are not familiar with Halfmoon Bay, it is high time that you become so because you are really missing out. It is a large scalloped bay on the Sunshine Coast, protected from the sea by South Thormanby Island. Halfmoon Bay resorts dot the area as do small cottages, permanent homes, and five regional parks.

Halfmoon Bay Resorts Are Rich in Tribal History

A Vancouver accommodation in the Sunshine Coast area is definitely situated in a very historic area. The land on which Halfmoon Bay rentals now exist once was inhabited by the Shishalh Tribe, which later became known as the Sechelts. The area was chosen for its mild climate, fresh water, and natural food which is why it is still so popular among tourists today. Halfmoon Bay resorts are wildly popular so it is always wise to book them as early as possible.

See the Sights with a Vancouver Accommodation

If you are planning on booking a Vancouver accommodation, chances are you are interested in seeing some beautiful and breathtaking sights. The Halfmoon Bay Lookout is a definite must-see in the area. It offers a panoramic view of the Thormanby Islands, Malaspina Strait, and Welcome Pass. You will also want to visit Caren Range during your stay in Halfmoon Bay resorts. You will see some of the oldest western hemlock and yellow cedar along with some beautiful scenery.

Activities to Enjoy near Halfmoon Bay Rentals

For someone who loves the great outdoors, a Vancouver accommodation is perfect. While staying in Halfmoon Bay rentals, you can spend your days fishing on Trout Lake or even diving or snorkeling in the waters of the bay itself. Other fun activities that the whole family might enjoy include boating, sailing, hiking, canoeing, and even camping.
