Sechelt's Best Ocean Front Cabin

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,000 sq. ft.
Property type cabin


About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps up to 7)

Our cozy seaside cottage is located 6 kilometers west of the small town of Sechelt, on a level, south facing beach, so there is lots of sun all day long. The beach is accessible for all water sports and it is safe for young children because it drops gradually. There is easy walking along the shingle beach for about a kilometer. Excellent mountain biking and hiking trails are also situated close by.

Our property is 160 feet of waterfront and the cottage sits on half of it while the other half is left natural. Wild roses, tall grass, arbutus and fir trees grow here, giving it a unique and peaceful setting. We are on a private lane, off the highway, shared with a few other cottages.

Inside the cottage, the main part of the house is an open post and beam plan. There are picture windows along the front, providing beautiful views of the ocean. The bedrooms and bathrooms are located at the back. It is approximately 1100 square feet.

Come and enjoy the natural beauty of the Sunshine Coast!

Fabulous Setting for a Relaxing Vacation, but a little rundown

  • 4 of 5

A lovely setting 5 minutes west of Sechelt this cottage is ideal for relaxing, kicking back and reading a good book. There are excellent hiking trails nearby. Sechelt offers all of the amenities one needs including great shopping for the bar-b-q, or if desired, some very good restaurants (Daphne's for Greek). The place can nicely accommodate up to 5 people, although it's advertised for 7. The problem is the pull-out-bed is held together by ductape and cannot comfortably handle two persons. We had family visit throughout our two week stay at various times and the three bedrooms worked out fine. The bathrooms, including the showers, are very good. When we arrived a few things concerned us. Many plates, serving dishes and glasses were chipped or broken and we put them aside. The kitchen drawers and bedroom dresser drawers were in the need of a good cleaning which we did. The linens were old and in fact half way thru our stay new linens were delivered. It should be pointed out that the cottage has a very old dryer, but no washing machine. There's a laundromat in Sechelt. There is much positive about this place including the large windows facing the water, the friendly neighbours, and the memorable views. If the owners can update a few of the items around the place it could easily be given an excellent rating. Oh yes, our dog Chase had a fabulous time.

Sechelt's Very Best

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is everything listed and more. It is in an idealistic setting on the Sunshine Coast, close enough to the services of Sechelt, but far enough away to really be away from it all. Diane provided everything we could need for our group of 6 to enjoy our long weekend away from the city. We are already making plans to come back to the cottage in the near future.

Comfortable and Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We have spent the last 2 Christmas Holidays at this restful cottage. I would recommend it year round. It has all the charm and comfort of home. The wood burning stove provides a welcoming atmosphere each evening. Thanks Dianne for sharing your cottage.

We love this place

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been here twice, and found the tranquility and beauty so soothing. The setting is gorgeous and the cabin is lovely, very comfortable and spacious. It's always clean and beautifully maintained. We were also delighted with the convenient location.
