About the property

3 bedroom, Breathtaking Sunshine Coast low-bank Beach Front in Roberts Creek

This prime low-bank beach front location offers the ultimate year round sunshine coast experience in the heart of charming Roberts Creek. The beach house faces south with views to the east and west for maximum sun....the beach is 4 steps down from the lawn and is sandy at low tide. Enjoy the morning sun with a steamy cup of coffee and magnificent sunsets from the adarondak chairs.

Perfect for bird watchers or the outdoor enthusiast. The abundant wild life provides ever-changing entertainment from soaring Eagles and Herons to seals and otters and if you are lucky a pod of orcas!

The home is very well maintained and solidly build with beautiful hardwood floors, post and beam construction and vaulted ceiling. An open concept top floor living space that affords lots of natural light and ever-present vista across the expansive Georgia Strait. A high efficiency wood burning stove provides a cozy warmth to the entire living space for those chilly winter evenings. The spacious kitchen is well-equipped with all appliances including a gas stove, with additional peninsula seating and all the essential amenities to make your stay your way. The dining area features an oak table and views to the east, south and west. A partially covered deck off the top floor has plenty of seating in or out of the sun. There is a gas BBQ available from May to October on the lower deck. There are 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms plus a warm outdoor shower for those glorious beach days. All bedrooms are on the lower floor with two them enjoying direct private access to the beautifully landscaped yard and full, open views across the Georgia Strait and direct access to the beach.

The beach is a mix of rock and sand at high tide and a sandy area for beach play at low tide. A gentle slope makes it perfect for swimming, paddle boarding or kayaking.

A beach fire is the perfect way to end the day infront of your beautiful vacation home.

Roberts Creek, a short walk by road or beach, features a general store, natural food store, gift ware, library, and the ever popular gumboot cafe where you can enjoy a coffee, tea or cold beer. The Gumboot restaurant is a Coast favourite and is typically a lively place to enjoy dinner or lunch with the locals.

Bring the family and enjoy easy access to the Roberts Creek community and all it's amenities and services. Situated on the Salish Sea, this beach house offers outdoor enthusiasts ample opportunity for kayaking, paddle boarding, kite boarding, wind surfing, world class mountain biking, hiking or just relaxing on the beach, lawn or deck in the sun!!

Golf enthusiasts can enjoy one of several golf courses with the Sunshine Coast Golf and Country Club only a few kms away.

Ideally located, 'Sea La Vie' is only 10 minutes from the Langdale Ferry Terminal, 5 minutes to Gibsons and 15 minutes from Sechelt and a 40 minute ferry from West Vancouver.

About Jane

Our family has loved the sunshine coast since we first came here, with a tent and kayak over 20 years. After a few years of tenting we purchased our first home in the Davis Bay area and in 2014 moved to our new home in Roberts Creek. Our grandchildren enjoy the beach and coast life as much as our children did. More beautiful memories are made with each visit!

Jane purchased this house in 2014

Why Jane chose Roberts Creek

We instantly fell in love with our home, property and magnificent beach. Our home is literally on the beach. At low tide our beach is full sand with plenty of room to play frizbe, soccer, skim board and build sand castles. There aren't too many other places on the coast that feature this. In the evening or after kayaking or hiking we enjoy a beach fire. The location makes both kayaking and paddle boarding ideal as we are steps to the water, transportation is a non-issue! The views are magnificent from both upper and lower decks and the home is truly an all-season home. (especially on blustery winter nights curled up by our fireplace!). We love to cook and the kitchen met our needs and that of our large family! Our neighbourhood is community oriented and we walk to Roberts Creek to enjoy the Gumboot and yoga regularly! These qualities and many more sold us on this property.

Great location for a relaxing weekend away.

  • 4 of 5

Our experience was great, we had 5 adults for a weekend of relaxing. The kitchen has lots of equipment but if you need something specific it would be worth bringing your own. Lots of towels, dishes and the space is great entertaining. Amazing view and access to the beach. The photos were very representative. Home ‘manual’ requires some common sense in application. Beds were pretty comfy, linens were clean and the home is well cared for. Jane was responsive to our questions and everything was as she said it would be.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four chose this property for a relaxing getaway and it was perfect. The home is warm and inviting, beautifully maintained and spotless. There was plenty of space for our family and all the amenities we could want provided. The location is ideal, close to some local shops and eateries but felt totally away from it all. Nothing better than falling asleep to the sound of waves crashing right outside our door! We would definitely choose to stay again.

Pure bliss!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. We had a very relaxing and peaceful 2 days. It was just what we needed as a getaway for friends to relax and take in the amazing view of our beautiful coast. From the sound of the waves rolling in outside my bedroom to the walk along the beach with the smell of the ocean it was heavenly. The quaint Gumboots cafe and dinner at the Gumboots restaurant was an added bonus as we could walk to it. A beautiful home with everything and more that we needed. We will be back in the spring......can't wait, Ann

Lovely fall vacation on the Sunshine Coast

  • 5 of 5

We - 2 couples - stayed at Sea La Vie for 3 nights midweek in mid-October. The house was exactly as advertised. It is very well-equipped, set up to make the most of the beautiful view, with a big beautiful kitchen where we easily cooked our meals. The house is comfortable, bright and exceeded our expectations. Jane provided lots of information about the house as well as things to do in the area.

Jane responded promptly to any communication or questions I had.

There are many interesting things to see and do, but we found that we were definitely at the end of the season. Some restaurants were closed and attractions were shutting down for the season.

A frustration I have with VRBO - the organization, NOT this particular property, is the pricing in USD rather than CAD. It seems odd that I am booking a vacation in my own province where the price is advertised in USD, and not usually stated until you actually go to book the property.

We all loved this house, it was the best VRBO experience we have had, and we would all gladly go back another time.

The perfect vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed for the first time at this wonderful house in Roberts Creek. It was very clean with hardwood floors throughout. This is important to us as we both have allergies. The top floor has a great deck that overlooks the yard and the beach. We had our morning coffee on the deck almost every day. There is also a deck outside the bedrooms on the ground floor. It's the perfect place for napping or relaxing with a book. It was fantastic to be so close to the water. We fell asleep listening to the waves on the beach and were able to watch the ships go by and wild life play during the day. The bed we used was extremely comfortable. The kitchen was large and well stocked with gadgets, utensils, cutlery, dishes, spices, etc. My husband enjoyed using the gas stove. The owner was great. She responded to emails and questions promptly. We travel each year to the Sunshine Coast to relax, unwind, and spend time with family. This house is a treasure! We will definitely be back!
