"We had the privilege of staying here for a lovely 3 months (Oct, Nov, Dec). We loved the very comfortable beds, the light-filled open design and the ever changing sea and sky views 24/7. Loved watching the seals & water birds from the chairs inside or on the deck - as well as the activity of tugs, ships, & sailboats. Enjoyed all the amenities of nearby Sechelt - the community centre facilities, the shopping, natural historical society gatherings, craft fairs,
the playhouse events, the hiking trails. The owners, Ed & Anndee, were very responsive to our every need. We look forward to returning!"

"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!"

"This was the most wonderful and relaxing place imaginable! Everything little detail about Life's a Beach makes it a perfect place to get away. The beach themed decor throughout the home is well chosen and really accentuates the "Life's a Beach" ambience! So many tiny little lovable details, like the little lights strung all around the outside of the home. It is well worthy of being on a House & Home magazine. This is not just a pretty cottage though, it is also functional. There is everything you'll need here for a relaxing, fun filled beach stay- a large BBQ and grilling equipment, kitchen with every kitchen tool you can think of (even a mixer and baking pans!), cutlery and tableware (in both ceramic and plastic, so you can take it out to the beach no problem), lots of fluffy white towels in the bathroom (to wrap yourself in after taking a dip in the backyard beach), comfortable seating everywhere (sofas, recliners, patio set...), 2 levels of patio seating (so you can get a little peace and quiet from the rest of your family/friends if desired, while still enjoying the beach), TV with HDMI port (for movie nights), wonderful views of the water from every angle, and probably more that we can't think of at the moment! This vacation home is perfect for families, couples, adventure seekers, relaxers, you can really do as much or as little as you want. We enjoyed every aspect of Life's a Beach and would return in a heartbeat!"

"Dearest Matilda and Ron, For the Thanksgiving weekend we chose to get away from the pace of the city, and instead joined you here at Footprints. What an inspiring decision! We napped on your daybeds, dipped in the hot tub and built warm fires while rain fell outside. C cooked a traditional Turkey dinner which we enjoyed in the sun room and slept like babies in the bedroom, which happens rarely in the city!
Your home here is beautiful, and helped us create a lasting memory. We cannot thank you enough for stocking the home with everything needed for an unforgettable experience.
Thank you sincerely for the warm welcome and trust with your home. We are certain our paths will cross again!"
