"My friends and I wanted a relaxing birthday getaway for a few days. I was so impressed with the great customer service from the owner Jon. He was quick at responding to any questions we had, and gave us great recommendations for the area. There is a beautiful quite beach just 5 minutes walking distance, and a variety of hiking trails in the area. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the essentials including a blender. The 2 bedrooms were small which was not an issue, and they had Queen size beds and one even had a TV if needed. The living room had everything you'd want in a cabin. There is lot's of wood provided so you can cozy up by the fireplace giving it a real cabin like feeling. Just to add to the ambience, the outdoor electric fire pit was a nice touch. The patio outside had a nice BBQ and patio table with some lounge chairs. Even though it was chilly, we still enjoyed sitting there surrounded by the trees. The rocks around the outside are painted with cute animals, flowers, etc... This added such a nice touch to the gardens. I'd have to say our highlight of this cabin was the hot tub area. Jon cleaned the hot tub before our arrival, which showed he really takes care and pride in his property. The hot tub was surrounded by trees giving it a true outdoor feel. Trips like this make me realize how lucky I am to live in BC. We'll for sure be back!"

"The location could not be more perfect, enjoy the beach? Walk two steps off the beach, love the woods and a little hiking? Just walk up the road and you have miles of trails to follow wherever you'd like. There couldn't be a more amazing location.
While the location is perfect, the accomadation itself is immaculate, well kept, beautiful views, great sun tanning decks, there is no better feeling in the world then waking up, walking out your bedroom door to a gorgeous view of the ocean and going for a quick swim to wake you up.
I could not recommend this spot any higher. It really is a peace within paradise. Amazing as a base camp for adventure, or the perfect relaxing getaway on the beach.
There may be some construction next door, however we had no issues with it what so ever."

"Absolutely will not be disappointed! The most well stocked rental property we have ever visited! Beautiful, clean and modern bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen areas. Our fave part was having a group BBQ on the giant deck with a view of the inlet. Absolutely stunning sunsets! The kids were perfectly happy having most of their time when at Seaview Lodge spent downstairs with the abundance of DVD's and XBOX games and we couldn't hear a peep :) Will definitely stay longer next time. The owner was very accommodating to work with and clearly takes pride in this property. Would recommend to groups and families with kids/babies, you will find everything you need. Already planning our next stay..."

"My husband and I stayed at Grumpy Cat Cottage for 12 nights, with our adult children and their dogs visiting for part of that stay. We found the cottage to be exactly as described; clean, comfortable, and the large property and waterfront area was enjoyed every day of our stay. It was wonderful to be able to have bonfires in the evenings (the fire ban was lifted) and John provided lots of firewood. Leslie and John left a surprising amount of groceries in the cottage which made us feel even more welcomed. We loved Sechelt and the surrounding areas and totally enjoyed exploring the many beaches and parks in that part of the Sunshine Coast. As adults, we were all very comfortable at Grumpy Cat; however, we did find the noise from the seaplanes very loud and irritating which is something one probably gets used to in time. There was also a lot of hammering and banging going on during the day from house construction next door; again, there was nothing John or Leslie could do about that and by next summer that intrusion should be a thing of the past. I would certainly come back to Grumpy Cat Cottage again but I would not bring small children or the elderly there IF needing to use the 'loft' bedroom for them. It is simply too hazardous of a climb for small children or anyone with a disability. The other two bedrooms on the main floor are perfectly comfortable. Knowing that John and Leslie were next door was a comfort if we needed anything, but they gave us our privacy and we never felt 'watched'. Overall, our vacation was a bounding success and we would love to return to Sechelt again in the near future. Thanks John and Leslie; Grumpy Cat Cottage is a lovely property."
