Our ocean front vacation home was a boathouse that has been converted to a two bedroom cottage. The interior of the cottage has been recently renovated and includes the following:
• a fully equipped kitchen
• two large bedrooms with hardwood floors (one bedroom has a king size bed and a futon couch and the second bedroom has a queen size bed and a cuddle chair.
• two full bathrooms
• a large flat screen TV with DVD player
•. stacked washer & dryer
• wood burning stove
• comfortable furnishings
This is an exceptional ocean front property with over 300 feet of low bank level waterfront located in a very private setting on two-third acre. The converted boathouse is only 20 feet from the water and the large lot is flat so there are no hills to climb. The property features a deep water dock with access to fresh water and power and can accommodate up to a 40 foot boat. In addition, the property has a large glassed-in deck located over the water with gate access to launch kayaks or canoe. The owners have two kayaks for use by their guests. From the front of the living room, many hours could be spent watching boats and seaplanes arriving and leaving the harbour. At night, the place is serene and quiet. Many animals including deer, bears, eagles and sea otters have visited the property.
Some local attractions include hiking at Mount Daniel Park and Skookumchuk Narrows, ocean and lake swimming, boating, fishing, golfing, horseback riding, art galleries and Sunday Jazz at local pubs. Whether you are looking for an active or relaxing vacation, this is the place for you.
For your shopping needs, the village of Madeira Park is a 20 minutes drive from the cottage and it has a well stocked grocery store, pharmacy, credit union, a new spa, restaurants and pubs, liquor store, gift shops, etc.
Our cottage is a 40 minute scenic ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay to Langdale and about an hour and 15 minutes drive up the Sunshine Coast Highway (Highway 101) to Garden Bay, Pender Harbour.

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your wonderful Boathouse! We enjoyed it immensely!! We loved the Jam. We would love to come again if you allow us. I was a stone's throw from my sister. Thank you again, Vilma and Don
For all those who are wanting a tranquil vacation, or those who are wanting to escape the hussle and bustle of city life, this is absolutely the place for you!
I truely do not have one bad thing to say about this home. We had such a great time adventuring around in the kayaks, walking around, visiting nearby towns, beachcombing, observing wild life, enjoying Judys jam, and over all, just relaxing and enjoying ourselves.
10/10 would reccomend
Thanks again Judy and Bruce!
We had never explored the Sunshine Coast, except for Gibsons, and were so happily surprised at the seemingly remote location of this property. It was tucked away in the small Hospital Bay. As we visited other Bays we always we're happy to come 'home' to our place.
We felt instantly welcome with a personal note from Judy and homemade jam! Yum! and our kids instantly fell in love with the fish pond. What I especially loved about the outdoor space was all the selection of seating areas. We really enjoyed access to the ocean, thank you Judy for letting us borrow the kayaks! we all loved that experience.
Inside the house it was very tastefully decorated and I loved the HUGE front window (we saw deer almost every night) and your home had all the things we needed, even a great selection of movies. The only I would have wanted was a selection of games for rainy days but really EVERYTHING was there. I want to come back next year! Thanks Judy and Bruce for a great holiday!
Bring enough groceries for your stay and you won't have to leave this beautiful home for your entire stay. Bruce and Judy have set up an incredible place to relax and enjoy yourself, perhaps so much that leaving it is the worst part of the visit.
Thank you Bruce & Judy! We had an awesome week at the Boathouse! We spent our days on the boat and came home to enjoy the evenings at the Boathouse. We loved the well equipped kitchen and enjoyed our time after dinner watching the fish in the pond, the many birds in the area and walking the property to take in all the plants, trees and flowers growing on the property. With a full day under our belt, we hit the sack early and the beds were as inviting and comfortable as you can get. We would definitely recommend this property and look forward to returning again.
Beautiful landscaped property, private and quiet with remarkable view of the bay. We traveled by boat from Mill Bay, and the major attraction for us was the private dock for mooring. Lovely home, every convenience and amenity has been considered, turn key luxury for a relaxing vacation. The owners were gracious hosts at our arrival, it really was a pleasure to meet them and learn some of the history of 'The Boathouse'. We hope to return and would definitely recommend 'The Boathouse' to our family and friends.
We fully enjoyed our stay at your place .... I said to my wife on more than one occasion as we were walking up from the dock ... "this place is so comfortable and feels just like home but, without all the associated work".
We brought our own boat to explore the local area so having access to a dock just steps from your front door was priceless and "made" our vacation experience both during the boating and after while sitting on the dock sucking up just a few more rays before sunset and the stars.
A wonderful place ... which the photos on your site can not come close to describing the actual experience.
