Why the Owner Chose Halfmoon Bay, BC, Canada:
I came to the Sunshine Coast nine years for a holiday and never left. Once I stepped off the ferry I felt a sense of peace wash over my whole body. The air was so crisp and clean and the wild life was amazing. On my first day to the Sunshine Coast I saw a bear, deer, eagle, loon, raccoon and a beautiful hummingbird. The next day I was here I went down to a magical spot called Welcome Beach, and there was a full sand oceanfront beach to run and play with my two young boys. I looked in front of me and noticed a cottage and house were both for sale, I called the realtor and bought the place within a week. Not once did I ever look back as I knew Halfmoon Haven was to be shared with people from all over the world. It is a place of tranquility and peace as well as a place for you and your family to build a lifetime of family memories. We have many families who we have been coming for nine years straight which is why we are booked out in our high season a year in advance. If you want to have a holiday where you can relax in the Sunshine on our beautiful beach, have a five star gourmet meal, a relaxing deep tissue massage, a kayaking trip, a canoe trip, or have a hot tub at sunset while you watch your family play a game of badminton or beach volley ball on our sand court, then you have a small glimpse of what Halfmoon Haven has to offer you and your family.
