About the property

Waterfront 3 Bedroom House On East Porpoise Bay Adjacent To Porpoise Bay Park.

No matter what time of the year this waterfront property is always beautiful. The Beach House is a picturesque, walk-on waterfront property with a stunning south facing exposure. The setting is tranquil and has been described as a little gem in the most perfect location in East Porpoise Bay. This house has all the comforts of home in a quiet, upscale, peaceful neighbourhood that suits like minded guests. Liked by all ages and conveniently located only a short distance from the amenities of downtown Sechelt. A place to unwind and enjoy beautiful scenery and wildlife. Experience the serene view from the large, private water side deck while sipping your morning coffee, with the waves lapping against the shoreline and the seabirds calling to one another. This place really feels like a vacation home! As the day moves on the working harbour comes alive with paddlers and sail boats and sea planes in the distant Sechelt harbour. Enjoy quiet evenings barbequing on the deck with friends and family while watching the sun go down and the twinkling lights of Sechelt shimmer across the bay waters as darkness sets in. The bay with it’s abundant wildlife including sea birds, seals, salmon, crabs, soaring eagles, is stunningly beautiful and is the focal point of the property. Kids and Adults enjoy exploring the tidal flats out front and walking through the sandy secluded coves leading into Porpoise Bay Provincial Park and bird estuary. The beach is couple steps down from the front lawn and easy to walk along. The setting is beautiful and serene in the colder months making it a year round retreat for relaxing and soothing away your stress.

The rancher style house is situated on the waters edge and is user friendly for elderly people having one step up to the front door and a walk-in shower with a built in seat. The inside of the house has been reviewed as spacious, clean, comfortable and complimented with tasteful artwork and furnishings. The layout has close up water views from the Living Room, Dining Room, and Kitchen allowing one to experience the seaside beauty from inside the house. There are three bedrooms with Queens and two full bathrooms at the back of the house and a large garage for storage. The Sectional in the living room pulls out into a queen bed for extra guests.

About Lisa and Mike Romalis

Lisa and Mike moved from Vancouver to the Sunshine Coast in 1991 and we have never looked back . We have lived in Gibson, Sechelt, Halfmoon Bay and Powell River and know both the upper and lower Sunshine Coast by the back of our hand.. Along the way we raised 3 kids who are now living their own journeys. We love the Sunshine Coast and we would be happy to help you plan your vacation on the Coast.

Lisa and Mike Romalis purchased this house in 1994

Why Lisa and Mike Romalis chose Sechelt

If you love the outdoors and viewing wildlife then there is no easier way to do it. If you enjoy kayaking, paddle boarding, strolling beaches and beach trails, and lounging on a waterside deck - then this place is for you.

What makes this house unique

Located next to Porpoise Bay Park. The park is a 5 minute stroll down a trail at the end of the street or walk down the beach into the park. Beautiful salmon stream, estuary, swimming beach, kids play ground, this large park is very popular and has a provincial campsite that is fully booked all summer.

Enjoy the Beach House view of Porpoise Bay and it's ever changing scenery and abundant wildlife. Today we saw killer,whales jumping out of the water, chasing schools of herring!

Gorgeous property right on the beach.

Fantastic views from the deck including eagles and seaplanes. Lisa and Mike were wonderful and had the house all ready for us when we arrived. Everything was clean and set up for a relaxing stay. 10/10, we would love to stay there again.

beautiful setting! Kayaking and paddle boarding was great!

  • 5 of 5

Mike and Lisa’s home was perfect for our family. We came with a family of 7, children ranging from 18-4 months. While the outside of the house and yard is rundown and could use some TLC it did not affect our stay, the inside was clean and completely suited our needs. Just a few minutes walk to porpoise bay provincial park, though if you want to be on your own away from all the people, stay at your own beach just steps from the house. We loved our time there and hope to be able to come back sometime. As stated above the only thing that would make it a little less then a 5 was the state of the yard.
