Beautiful view and great house

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Nook. The house is very comfortable and has everything you need (except a dishwasher) ;) ... and it was great having the toddler table and baby crib there so I didn't have to bring one. The stairs were no problem for us, just a good workout!

The weather wasn't that great but it didn't matter too much because the cozy house and the view were all very relaxing. I'd definitely stay there again!

Wonderful Stay at Seaside Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved this rustic cabin perched just above the water. Yes, there are many stairs but the cabin and the ocean are well worth the climb. Our group enjoyed the convenience of having two full bathrooms and being able to wash and dry our clothes onsite. There was plenty of room to lay back and relax both inside and outside the cabin. Nice that Sechelt is only a 10 minute drive for supplies and suppers out. Thankfully no problems with cell coverage or wifi access. We recommend this rental to families and friends looking for a fun get-a-way. We wouldn't hesitate to re-book this rustic retreat!

Beautiful House in a Stunning Location

  • 5 of 5

A group of us stayed over the Thanksgiving weekend and we had an amazing time. The house is breathtaking where it is situated overlooking the water and mountains. The house itself has everything you could need with a fully stocked kitchen with clean and comfortable surroundings. Helen was most helpful with her information guide and called to check that everything was ok after we arrived. We are definitely going to book this house again in the summer time so we can enjoy the beach and beautiful deck area.

Wonderful visit with family, in a lovely setting.

  • 4 of 5

Well kept, clean and tidy home. All necessities provided! Nothing lacking. Wildlife was wonderful, kingfisher, weasel, sea lions, deer. Ocean had starfish, jellyfish and a great private beach. Campfires at the water, were fantastic. Bear sightings in the area maybe once or twice a year according to the locals (however in W Sechelt - about 10 m from the parking lot (Gov't dock area) a Grizzly was sighted last night).

Welcome living room area with plenty of comfortable seating. Dining area has 6 chairs, but the patio outside (with coverage) has plenty of seats and dining table - this balcony! An incredible spot for morning coffee! Bathrooms are clean and updated, and plenty of really hot water with super water pressure! Bedrooms are roomy, and have great views.

We were well aware of the stairs (top to bottom 170 in total), they are indeed a work out! Items which we found could have improvements include, the beds (personal preference) and the stairs from the to the cottage from parking don't meet building code (a little unstable).

These items really are minor, we loved our visit at The Nook and would recommend it.

Just What the Doctor Ordered!

  • 5 of 5

After a hectic and stressful summer we decided to "get away from it all" with a small group of close friends. The Nook was the perfect escape from our busy world.

The property was intimately surrounded by lush forest and pristine waters, offering the peace and privacy we were looking for. The mountain and water views from the balcony and bedrooms were definitely post-card material!

The cabin was very well stocked with everything we needed to prepare our delicious alfresco meals. The bathrooms were sparkling fresh and new.

We really appreciated the attention to detail - from the clean linens and towels, to the small light over the grill for those night-time BBQs!

The stairs were a great way to get some exercise in the fresh air - just what the Doctor ordered!

Our only regret, was that we did not stay longer...

Thanks to Helen for accommodating us, and making our short vacation picture perfect!

We look forward to our next stay at the Nook!
