Thank you for checking out our cabin as your home away from home on your vacation.

The artist is reflected in this creation, moreover the overall aura and design is something that has been admired by past renters. Some say that it's like being in a luxury shanty hut in the forest, accompanied by the beautiful lamb bay.

This beautiful west coast log home comes fully furnished with all amenities. With 6 bedrooms and 4 baths this home can accomodate large groups comfortably, moreover a large gourmet kitchen fully stocked with all your cooking needs. A dining table that sits 16 people and a office that comes with wireless complimentary internet. For the nights you feel like staying in, feel free to use the wood burning fireplace along with the theatre room located in the basement.With our new addition to our driveway there are plenty of parking spaces.

This property is perfect for couples, families, or even large coorporate groups. Their is something here for everyone weather you like to sit on the beach and watch the wildlife do its thing. The waterfront view from this cabin is like no other, surrounded by nature its something that will not go unappreciated.

We hope this vacation rental can accomodate your future visit to the sunshine coast.

See You Next Year. Perfect Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We just held a four generation family reunion at the Sunshine Coast Waterfront Rental for 6 days, and it was fantastic. We had the entire house 12 people ranging in age from 2 months to mid 80's. Up on arrival we had overwhelming welcome by the owners. Inside the wood burning fire place was going. With the rental of the whole house it was perfect to accommodate the whole family. The whole house was warm and welcoming it was very clean warm and fully stocked. Alot of time and love has been put into this house. Rooms were clean, modern and well kept. The kids had a great time using the media room. There are a lot of summer and winter time activities in the vicinity The Owners was wonderful to deal with. I would recommend it to anyone for a family reunion adventure. We are looking forward to our summer arrival 2018.

Cant wait till next time!!

  • 5 of 5

I honestly dont think words can describe our stay at Phil and Debbies place! My family of 11 including my myself along with my husbands extended family from New Zealand descided to join us for this family get away to the Sunshine Coast for the first time. Our stay was for 5 nights but i feel like we could have easily been there for 2 weeks. My family in general is full of nature lovers so from my research this is the place to be! When we arrived to the house we were amazed with how MASSIVE this house was, the house is way bigger in person than in pictures. Before we could start unloading our stuff my 2 kids were already at the front door being greeted by Debbie. She was so sweet and insisted that we come in for a tour and refreshments before unloading our luggage! We got a great tour of the house and property with all its features and ammenities. We've been to many vacation rentals before but this has had to be one of the cleanest and well decorated by far. The bedrooms were all very spacious and cozy. The bathrooms were clean. The living room is something that you would seen in a magazine with its log bridge spanning across the living room. The kitchen is literally a gormet kitchen stocked with every pot and pan you could imagine. My family was simplily amazed with how beautiful this home was The house has 3 large covered decks that have amazing views of the ocean. The beach is literally steps away from the backyard which was one of the favorite parts for my children, even though they did not go swimming they had no shortage of fun just hanging out on the beach. For the 5 days that we were there, my entire family spent most of our time at the house. We hung out on the deck, went for a walk up a few trails, enjoyed the wood burning fireplace in the house and simpily just lounged on the deck. We could not have asked for a better relaxing stress free getaway for our family. This is our new go-to stop in the sunshine coast

Thank you Debbie :)

Wonderful home, terrible owner.

  • 1 of 5

Less than 48 hours before our vacation Devi calls me and that was when the issues began to arise.

1. Racist Profiling

I believe Devi determined I was Asian based on my last name. She started off our telephone conversation explaining the issues she was encountering with the current and previous guests. She stated “… I don’t want to be racist, but from my experience Asian guests lie about the number of guests…” As a first-generation Canadian who is professional and ethical, I was offended and hurt. I felt she was ignorant to the comments she was making over the phone as she made similar comments to the group when we arrived. Issues should be dealt with on a case by case basis; to be profiled and stereotyped because of my cultural background is considered racist and this behavior is not tolerated or accepted in Canada or anywhere in the world.

2. Maintenance of the Home

There are a few items that makes me question the cleanliness and the upkeep of the home:

a. It does not look like the headboards or furniture is wiped down or sanitized after each stay. We found what looks like to be dried up bodily fluid on the headboard

b. Dirty duvet covers and pillows

c. Pothole in backyard

d. Leaking freezer

3. Business Due Diligence

I understand Devi has stress about her vacation rental home as she has many complaints on the property and is on the verge of losing her license. However, the way she handled herself and treated her guests is not appropriate. Aside from the racist comments, she also did not review the client information sheet I filled out; instead she accused me of trying to defraud her when I informed her I updated the numbers from 12 to 16 on our final contract. The accusations because of race in addition to her lack due diligence is not professional.

We had to agreed to paying the extra charge and started to look for babysitter less than 48 hours prior to our vacation as she wouldn’t provide us with a full cancellation. A day before our check in and after the extra people charge, Devi changed her mind and allowed the kids to join us.

Needless to say, I have filed complaints to the relevant associations on the Sunshine Coast. Not the way we intended to remember our September long weekend.

Group fun!!

  • 5 of 5

Fun weekend away with friends. The house was great for our group of 12, plenty of room. The house and kitchen was well stocked and dining room had seating for all of us. Nice fireplace inside. Close to Sechelt for supplies, lots of great walking and hiking trails nearby. Beautiful view of water while sitting on the decks. Access to water for kayaking.

Fabolous get away

  • 5 of 5

Excellent , amazing , unbelievable what ever you want to call it , it is a great family reunion place , This house is amazing , three level is beauty and lots of privacy with large family groups , my favorite is the view and the easy access to the beach. You are close to home, nature and the best of all the water. This house is full of positive energy, with tons of local art , décor is unbelievable , it has a lot of personal touch to make each family feel like they are home. Phil and Devi are amazing people who have opened up this home to family's to enjoy. Our family cooking experience was out of this worlds with the grand kitchen fully stocked. It is located in a very sightseeing location and easy access for all adventure seekers . Great place for families to reunite.
