YOU WANT PRIVACY?
Set in five acres of mature west coast forest including access to 260 feet of low bank waterfront commanding a sunny south facing point with a private beach. Seals and otters frolic among the islets and eagles perch in the cedars and ancient firs.

DO YOU WANT VIEWS?
Perched on the edge of a moss and lichen covered bluff in the open arbutus and fir canopy, this 1220 sq ft glazed aerie offers intimate views of the surrounding forest as well as the rugged coast.(sleeps 2-5)

Short paths, benches and seating areas along the shoreline offer different perspectives from which to view the landscape and its native west coast flora and fauna.

THE AERIE -A graceful butterfly roofline and sweeping expanses of glass blur the boundaries between interior and exterior spaces in this new modern treehouse which reflects a contemporary twist on traditional typologies, especially corrugated metal boat sheds and cedar clad cottages.

A 10 ft. granite island anchors a modern kitchen and serves as a gathering spot in the open living area.

The master bedroom and ensuite enjoy private forest views. A queen sized bed and rainshower refresh.

Cleverly designed niches offer sitting and sleeping areas for extra guests.

An additional bathroom with a comfortable deep tub adds convenience for families.

Large deck wraps around the south corner for beautiful ocean views and al fresco dining. Private patio to the rear includes a hot tub and private lounging area.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We bought the property in Dec 2005 as our future retirement home while we were still residing and working in Dawson Creek, BC. It was a successful vacation rental till Feb 2010 when we began a complete reconstruction of the main house and built a new guesthouse (Aerie) on the bluff above. We made the move to the Sunshine Coast full time in January 2011 living first in the Aerie guesthouse and finally in Jun 2012, the expanded and renovated Pointhouse now a boutique B&B. With the interesting guests from all over the world and a busy schedule of physician locums, retirement is still a ways off. Fortunately, life on the coast is a more relaxed pace allowing us more playtime, family time and travel opportunities.

Why the Owner Chose Halfmoon Bay, BC, Canada:
The Sunshine Coast is easily accessible from Vancouver-car,ferry, boat, floatplane, commercial/ corporate aircraft. The location is spectacular - You have to visit to appreciate. Most beautiful landscapes on the Sunshine Coast. Sargeant Bay Provincial Park is a little known jewel. A secluded log strewn halfmoon shingle beach with sand at low tide backed by a magnificent bird sanctuary and lovely hiking and mountain bike paths. Gibsons, Sechelt, Pender Harbor and points in between offer innumerable opportunities for sightseeing, cultural and sporting activities and this property is located centrally to it all.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This estate offers one of the most luxurious, private and peaceful locations on all the Coast. Everything about the property, both natural and crafted, is designed to induce relaxation.
