Overview

About the property

Wonderful peaceful walk-out waterfront home with its own sandy/pebble beach!

Welcome to easy ocean-front living in this one level plus loft 2800sq foot home. This house is located in a small quiet beach community. There are 3 bedrooms with queen size beds, and one of these rooms also has a bunkbed and extra kitchen (considered a studio suite). The house is furnished comfortably to relax or be cozy through any season you decide to stay. Walk out the back door and enjoy a picnic area in the centre of the backyard overlooking the beach. You are perfectly positioned in a calm bay to take in southwest views. Take a stroll down the road or beach straight in to Porpoise bay Provincial park featuring picnic areas, beach and playground.

You will be centrally located on the Sunshine Coast, great for making this your home-base to explore other outdoor activities/areas the coast has to offer. We are a short 40minute ferry ride from the Vancouver mainland, and a 25-30minute drive from the ferry terminal. Everything you need is in downtown Sechelt, only a few minutes drive away including shopping, hospital, swimming pool, sea plane tours, dining and more.

There is something here for everyone, whether you want to bike, hike, fish, watch the sea planes go by, stargaze at night without hearing any city noises...just peace and quiet. We also have 2 paddle boards and a child canoe to enjoy. There are also a couple places that rent kayaks very close by.

Our grandchildren all under 3 years old loved the beach and the spacious house. The owner Natalie was very helpful and caring. We would love to come back again. LOVED IT😎?

Sandy Beach House exeeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic location for family memories.

The House: This is truly a beautiful home in a spectacular setting. Sandy Beach House is spacious and bright, featuring comfy gathering spaces both inside and out, and private areas for a quiet read or nap. The kitchen was well equipped and super clean, and the big island provided ample shared prep space for all the cooks in the family. So many dining options - breakfast in the gazebo over the water, long dinners in the dining room, and games and snacks at the kitchen nook table.

Perfect for kids - our almost 6 year old was impressed with the play area, toys and children's library - no detail spared, right down to kid-sized beach chairs.

Comfortable beds, good linens and towels, plenty of hot water, all made for a happy and well-rested family.

Outdoor Fun - We used it all! Beach chairs, stand up paddle boards, fire pit. We even set the crab trap (we left a new bait bag for you!) but had to release our catch - all female! Even our almost 6 year old was able to paddle board! The estuary is just a short hike away, and there is a fun playground in the provincial park.

The area - The house and property was so lovely that we didn't want to spend much time away, but we went to the Farmer's Market in Sechelt on Saturday morning and loaded up on honey and Bricker's cider and fresh greens for dinner. We stopped in at Cheeky Monkey Bakery to pick up some birthday cupcakes - mmm...gluten free and vegan options. We also visited Bricker's cidery on Sunday afternoon to refill the growlers to take back to the city.

I found the host very approachable, professional and easy to deal with. Any query beforehand was answered quickly. Her guidelines are clear and the emailed instructions were easy to follow. We really appreciated the attention to detail for all switches and appliances in the house. The labels made finding the right switch for a light or fan a piece of cake.

We are already planning our next year's vacation here! Thanks Sandy Beach House for a great long weekend and a super family experience. So many memories....

Awesome vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The house is exactly as described - really lovely. Would recommend to friends. We were pleasantly surprised by the number of thoughtful items that were present eg blender in the kitchen (among other good quality cooking equipment), toys, playpen for kids...

Thank you!

Beautiful. The cleaner had forgotten to wash and put out towels but everything else was exactly as described!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, The cleaner is supposed to leave all guest towels in one cupboard for guests to take to the washroom of their choice (from the middle washroom)...I will follow up with my cleaner about that, they have never been forgotten before. Thank you for staying at the beach House!

Super Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Sandy Beach House. The location is perfect, right on the beach with sand for little ones to dig and play in. April weather didn't allow for water play but the house is located in a well protected bay. The house itself is large with lots of sleeping areas and an extra partial suite which included a fridge, sink and counter space. Upstairs there is a lovely open room with toys and TV that our four year old grandson enjoyed.All the rooms are tastefully decorated. The linens appear new and the kitchen has all the necessities. There are generous sitting areas both inside and out. The house is located in a quiet neighbourhood. The neighbours were friendly and appreciated that we were a quiet family enjoying the beach setting. Sandy Beach House is only a short drive from Sechelt where we found good coffee shops, restaurants, a playground, lovely ocean walkway, shopping, including a local shop that hand makes sheepskin slippers. We all agreed that Sandy Beach House more than met all our needs and wants.

Great views, good for a group

  • 5 of 5

We were 5 adults and 3 kids that stayed for a few nights in the winter (it actually snowed, and we had to shovel the driveway!). The house was clean and comfortable, and Natalia was available and responsive to our questions about getting one of the TVs to work. Cool upstairs loft area for kids to play in. Come with your own toiletries/paper towels/laundry detergent/olive oil, as these items were not available for guests. Great views and beach access right out the back -- would be lots of fun in warmer weather!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at the Beach House this winter, snow and all! Many guests have their own favourite brands or sensitivities for shampoos/body wash so we do not provide those toiletries...better for guests to pack their favorites. Luckily there are toys/games/books provided for those cooler indoor winter days, hopefully the kids had fun with those...the loft has definitely become the favourite hang-out for our little guests! Hope you can come enjoy the warmer months one day :)
