  • Modern Tranquil Escape

    "What a treat to stay at such an incredibly well designed home. The home is built in a way that captures the views of the bay perfectly below and is very private. The roof top deck is fantastic! The next level down is your fully stocked kitchen, dining room and living room. The folding patio doors are fantastic and expose the outer elements perfectly. That couch is so comfortable for just sitting and looking out at that fabulous view. When it gets cooler the floors are heated from the radiant heat! The next level down are the bedrooms. The master bedroom is large and the bathrooms are well designed and thought out with sliding doors for different uses. We were left some handcrafted soaps and lavender bath milk too. A nice touch! The two other bedrooms are good for kids with trundle beds for additional sleeping. The lowest level is the TV room with a futon couch. Great for watching movies. Outside is your garage and a little picnic table. Rosemary is abundant on this property! We picked some and used it when cooking our salmon on the BBQ! The only thing that was missing was a hot tub! Wouldn't that be amazing with a glass of wine in the evening? I think yes! We hiked Pender Hill, kayaked the bay, ate on the patio at the pub in Garden Bay, and pretty much just relaxed the entire time. A great getaway from the hustle and bustle of Vancouver. Fully stocked for everything you could think of! Thank you for allowing us to experience your lovely home."

  • Family gathering

    "WOW! What a place and what a location. We were a group of 8 assorted close family over 3 generations and with 2 dogs. Eagles nest was just perfect for us. When 8 year old Sam walked into the house he said "Holy Macaroni" ! The house is stunning and Murray has equipped it so thoughtfully. We had fantastic weather and were able to swim in the cove and make use of the kayaks. The children loved Katherine Lake and were thrilled to see the Painted Turtles there as well as so many Eagles, Humming Birds, Deer, Chipmunks huge Starfish and Seals round the house. Sadly no Orcha - this time! The huge games room was a great success and so cool when it was too hot to be active outside. A really great family holiday with plenty of space to all enjoy quiet time as well as have fun together. Very special memories were made and we are still talking about it. Would love to return sometime or better still, win the lottery and make Murray an offer he can't refuse !!!"

  • Don't Miss This Place!

    "From the moment we arrived and were greeted as old friends, we knew we had chosen the perfect spot. The accommodations were beautiful and spotless, the view spectacular and the mattress was a slice of heaven! The area offered many hikes to amazing views and secluded spots to enjoy the harbor seals, sea stars, ocean etc. Boat tours offered area history and sunsets, and the Princess Louisa Inlet tour was a highlight of our stay! We enjoyed a mix of activity, great food and relaxation. SeaStar Cottage was unique in that it had neighbors nearby, but for the most part there was total SILENCE...and we enjoyed the sounds of the birds chirping and the deer coming through the woods to eat the blackberries. If you are looking for top notch quality, cleanliness, comfort and beauty, please do yourself a favor and stay here. Ron & Marilyn are the BEST!"

  • Time out in a peaceful cottage by the sea

    "We had the most wonderful stay in this perfectly equipped cottage. The lovely linens, comfortable beds and blissful silence made for a terrific sleep. We spent many a meal on the sunny front porch and of course don't forget to look up at night, the stars will overwhelm you. There was everything one could possibly need in the kitchen for whipping up a quick meal or taking time to create something delicious. The owner was warm and friendly and always quick to respond to email and checking in was a breeze. I'm so glad we live close enough to enjoy this place again and again."
