The Sunshine Coast is a 40 minute ferry ride from Vancouver. Experience coastal living in this tastefully renovated 1000 sq. ft., beach chic waterfront cottage just steps from your own private south facing beach. The cottage itself is only a five minute drive from the ferry, but its seclusion will surprise you.
With the 100+ year old Arbutus tree, almost daily wildlife visits, and no shortage of amenities, you will be immersed in the Pacific Temperate Rainforest without compromising comfort. Breathtaking views of the Popham Islands in the foreground and Vancouver in the background. Feel at home with complete privacy and simple comfort in this historic living space.
A convenient vacation destination, discover your Sunshine Coast personality with magnificent access to year round activities, nearby restaurants, the public market and local shops.
The natural surroundings are home to our resident deer, who frequently visit the property on their way to the beach. Whales and Orcas make guest appearances, depending on the time of year. Storm watching right from the warmth of the living room will literally blow you away.
For the comfort of our guests, each room has its own baseboard heater with thermostat control, a ceiling fan in the bedroom, a portable fan, a dehumidifier to control humidity levels, and of course guests can open the windows for ocean and rain-forest-fresh air.
Relax with a book on the day bed and look at the amazing view, enjoy free Wi-Fi, watch Net-Flix on the flat-screen HDTV or walk 200 steps from the back yard, down the meandering forest trail and you will have the entire beach to yourselves for suntanning, swimming or beach combing. The sun room provides a restful dining space overlooking one of the oldest Arbutus trees on the coast. At the end of the day have a soak in the tub, unwind in front of the cosy fireplace and enjoy dinner overlooking the water where the afternoon sun filters through 150 year old Coniferous trees and mature gardens.
When you are ready to retreat to the bedroom you will be instantly relaxed by the calming sound of waves crashing on the beach.

Our Sunshine Coast Vacation Rental is almost always booked with a guest checking out in the morning and another guest checking in that evening. Our property takes approximately 3 hours to clean, and to wash, dry and replace all the linens and towels. Therefore, our check-in time is 4:00 pm and our check-out time is 11:00 am. Occasionally, we can offer an earlier check-in time or a later check-out time but only if nobody is checking in or out on the same day. If you wish to guarantee a check-in time prior to 4pm on the day of your arrival, the only way to do so is to book the property for the prior night and then you can check in at any time after 4pm the day prior to your arrival. Likewise, if you wish to check-out after 11am, the only way to do so is to book the property for the next day as well and then you can check-out at your leisure.
It is our priority to make your stay at our home as peaceful and enjoyable as possible. The Cottage is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood where it is important to respect our neighbors.Your host lives in a newer home above the cabin on the same property. You can expect complete privacy. However, give us a jingle if you need any assistance. No outside noise is permitted after 10pm. No more than two cars. No events or parties are permitted. No additional persons permitted other than those guests staying unless specifically authorised in writing by the owners. We expect our guests to remember that depending on the time of year, there may be wildlife and insects on the property and to use caution.
Guests may cancel and review any penalties by viewing their travel plans and VRBO's Cancellation Policy. We highly recommend that travelers get last minute cancellation insurance through their own travel insurer.
