Overview

About the property

2 bed, 1 bath, sleeps 4

SeaSong is in the charming seaside village of Crescent Beach. Enjoy our beautiful, 2 1/2 years new, spotless 1st level 1 1/2 bedroom suite with ocean view ~ a 2 minute stroll takes you to the beach & toes in the sand. SeaSong's open concept design & beach house charm will surround you in comfort while the gas fireplace, 42' Samsung LED flatscreen TV, DVD & CD library entertains. An iPod dock is ready to play your favourite tunes.

Spacious, well laid out & equipped for serious foodies, the kitchen features a large island with seating for up to 4, stainless steel appliances including high end Dacor gas range, dishwasher, fridge & microwave. Coffee lovers can enjoy a French press or drip brew. A variety of teas & other beverages are also on hand, as well as spices/herbs & a good selection of staples.

SeaSong's bedroom boasts an ultra comfortable queen bed with down topper & premium linens, 39" flatscreen TV, built-in electric fireplace & new washer/dryer. The ocean themed bathroom includes heated tile floors & a deep soaker tub with fireplace view.

The additional lounge area includes a very comfortable (really!) Lazy Boy air-topper queen sleeper sofa; a floor to ceiling curtain divides the sleeping space from the living area. The suite has been extremely well sound-separated from the main floor to ensure privacy.

Enjoy coffee or Happy Hour on the ocean view deck from the comfort of your Adirondack chairs while the resident birds entertain. You'll find a table for 2, gas grill & firepit for more outdoor living. In the fall & winter months, cozy up by the fire with a good book or movie. Pamper yourself with a professional in-suite massage by a registered therapist.

A SeaSong Welcome Basket greets guests with fresh organic coffee & the 'fixings', organic fruit (local when in season), wine, chocolate & more.

Bicycles, beach chairs & towels, croquet, bocci & horseshoes add to the summer fun. Stroll the beachwalk to cafes & bistros, explore Blackie Spit bird sanctuary or bike the myriad of beach paths. Winery touring, horseback riding, kayaking, paddleboarding, sailing, art galleries & more are all close at hand.

SeaSong is 8 minutes to the oceanside town of White Rock with its famous wooden pier, a wonderful array of restaurants, bars & shops. A 45 minute drive brings you to downtown Vancouver & 10 minutes takes you to the US border with Seattle 1 1/2 hours beyond.

We love our weekly guests as well as those who come for extended periods! If you are interested in staying longer than a month please ask about our multi-month discount :-).

Please note, a railway line runs through the community of Crescent Beach and near the Property. As you'll see from our reviews, the majority of our guests do not find it to be a problem, and in fact many enjoy the historic charm it represents.

About Gail Terry

I'm very proud to be a Vancouver born & raised girl ~ I've lived in this very special community of Crescent Beach since 1992 & have loved every minute of it!

I'm a passionate traveller blessed to have experienced many amazing parts of the world including Europe (Italy is my favourite so far with 5 visits, including several places little travelled by Nth Americans), the Caribbean (the British Virgin Islands are my home-away-from-home), Mexico (I'm lucky to have been to many off-the-beaten-paths secrets), Central America, Great Britain & of course our nearest neighbours to the south, the US. I'm very excited to have a special trip to Africa in the works for 2017!

I'm also a passionate animal lover & very involved in animal welfare. If you would like to have your four-legged family member join you, we will do everything to make his/her stay as special as yours :-). Of course our two-legged guests receive the 'royal treatment' too! :-)

I look forward to hosting you here at SeaSong & making your stay in the Vancouver area a special one ~ come visit us soon!!

Gail & Leo :-)

Gail Terry purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Gail Terry chose Surrey

In years gone by (as far back as the twenties) Crescent Beach was a popular family summer destination & although we're only 45 minutes outside the city of Vancouver, many people still maintain summer homes here. This is a large part of why this area has retained the special seaside village charm of a bygone era. Life is still a little slower here & we love that!

SeaSong is part of a very special home affectionately known as 'Casita del Mar' (Little House by the Sea). Casita began as the Bell Family's summer cottage ~ since being built by the hands of family & friends in the fifties, many wonderful memories have been made here & today the house still retains those precious feelings. From the moment I stepped into the cottage in 1992 (the first time I tried to buy it!) & looked out to the bay I knew this was where I wanted to make my home.

The beautiful memories continue!

What makes this apartment unique

SeaSong is a 2 year Labour of Love ... I designed & contracted it from start to finish, taking great care & attention to the small details that would make it special, the kind of place I'd be thrilled to discover & would want to return to over & over again. I hope you'll agree!

SeaSong Has It All!

  • 5 of 5

This is the ideal place for a vacation, or "staycation". So close to the beach, everything has been provided and made welcoming and comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed the suite with its lovely balcony with seating and plants, a BBQ, the kitchen window view of ocean sunsets, the spacious kitchen with an island for gathering, food preparation, eating, a cozy living room area, a comfy bed and big closet. The pull-out with air-top bed and a curtain to create a second bedroom is great too. The bathroom was clean and well-appointed, with beach decor and inviting touches. You could even watch the large TV from the bathtub!. Two TVs, a stereo, bicycles, folding beach chairs, books, games, beach blankets are all provided. The kitchen is a foodie's paradise with a gas range, large fridge, microwave, dishwasher, and dishes. Spices, as well as coffee are provided so I didn't need to bring or buy some of the staples, which is a thoughtful touch. Loved the beach touches throughout, and the well-organized use of the space. There was a hook or counter or cupboard where it was needed. The weather was perfect, but I think it would be a great place to stay at other times of the year, too. While so close to home, I felt like I was in a faraway location. It was hard to leave and I definitely plan to be back.

Sparkling Ocean Charm

  • 5 of 5

SeaSong is a lovely little getaway just a stone's throw from the ocean. Small enough to be cozy yet big enough to move around in, even with our two greyhounds. Gail, the owner thought of everything to make our stay comfortable and special. She was thoughtful and accommodating in every way. The home itself is top notch and well laid out, and clean as a whistle, sparkling with upscale "beachiness." Leo, the resident doggie, added his own dash of panache. We will definitely be looking to book another stay in the future!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 weeks at this wonderful accommodation. Great location with views of the beach and ocean. Everything and more was provided. We felt so welcome. Even our large dog felt right at home. Fun watching the trains go by and you just got used to them. Great walks along the beach and near by parks and walking trails. Hope to come back next year and stay for 6 weeks. Thanks Gail and Leo for a wonderful time away.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Ann & Ken for your wonderful feedback! I'm always elated when I hear things like "we felt so welcome" as I strive to make SeaSong a warm home-away-from-home for my guests. It was lovely meeting you (Kona was such a great 4-legged guest! :-) and hearing about your adventures & all the work you do to help others. We need more positive stories like yours in our world today! I hope we'll see you all again next winter (or before!). In the meantime, take good care! Wishing you the very best ... Gail & Leo :-)

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful week at SeaSong. This accommodation is 5 star. You are welcomed in and when you walk in and know are going to love it. There is nothing missing in this seaside cottage. A pleasure to come home each night and sit on the deck and view the ocean. The inside is warm and cozy. Nice and bright. The beds are both comfy. Took a bike ride along Crescent beach. Beautiful sunsets from the view inside. It is very clean. One of the nicest places I have ever stayed in. My mom and I enjoyed it so much. My mom loved seeing the train each day. Our little dog settled in so nicely. She was so relaxed to. I will be sure to come back.

A Retreat at the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific 2 weeks at beautiful SeaSong. The accommodation was perfect and the amenities supplied were above and beyond. Everything we needed and more. We had a very busy itinerary, visiting family and friends and it was so wonderful to come "home" to this beach house every night. We walked the beach every morning and spent some time on the beach every day. The changing tides and beautiful sunsets were the best. Our grandchildren loved it. We felt like part of the community right from the beginning with our host making sure things were good and the neighbors welcoming us. We were assured that we would get used to the trains and we did. No problem. Just part of the charm of beautiful Crescent Beach. Pet " friendly" doesn't begin to describe Leo. He's the mascot and great ambassador for SeaSong. We will be back!
