About Janey Talbot
We transitioned to full time life on the Sunshine Coast in 2011. John operates his part time business from the Coach House. Janey has recently retired. We both love to be active and the Coast is a perfect venue for road cycling, mountain biking, kayaking, golfing, dragon boating, cross country skiing, gardening, yoga and working out at the Aquatic Centre in Sechelt. The bay is great for paddle boarding and kayaking because it is usually more sheltered than other properties on the ocean.
Janey Talbot purchased this Guest House in 2000
Why Janey Talbot chose Halfmoon Bay
It is rare to find a waterfront property so private and quiet. We lived in the one bedroom suite in the coach house during our full renovation of our existing home in 2010. It was exciting and fun for both of us, we love building, design and sharing our home.The bay is a more secluded than open ocean and so you are often welcome to borrow our 2 kayaks for use in the bay.
What makes this Guest House unique
The coach house is completely separate from the main house and works independently. The kitchen is large enough for 2 to participate in creating scrumptious food at the end of the day.

A Perfect Place to Unwind
We just spent 5 relaxing, rejuvenating days at John and Janey's coach house. The peaceful setting and serene ocean view from the deck instantly put us in "vacation mode". John and Janey could not have been more thoughtful and generous. From the friendly welcome and suggestions for local outings, to the vase of fresh flowers on the kitchen table, to allowing us the use of their two kayaks (which were great fun!), they really could not have been better hosts. The coach house itself was very comfortable, clean and well-equipped. We ended up eating most of our meals there, just enjoying the view. And if we needed anything or felt like hitting a coffee shop, it was just a short drive into Sechelt and Davis Bay. The location is also perfect for those who love to hike with Sargeant Bay and Smuggler's Cove (a must-see) Provincial Parks so close by. We'll definitely be returning!
You both have such an enthusiasm for life and the Coast, we loved having you here and look forward to having you as neighbours in Halfmoon Bay (or one of the many others locations on the coast) when the time is right.
Beautiful setting away from it all!
We spent a fantastic, relaxing week in Janey & John's coach house on Sergeant Bay. The coach house boasts a fantastic view of the ocean and has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. We prepared all of our meals and the kitchen was well equipped. The ocean view deck is perfect for reading, relaxing and enjoying a morning coffee. It is so quiet here and such a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of living in the city! The property has ocean access with different places to sit and relax, both sunny and shaded, to enjoy the beautiful view. Janey and John very kindly provided the use of their kayaks which we really enjoyed a lot - every day out in the bay for a paddle! We played some horseshoes, too, and went for a few ocean swims, but we spent most of our time just relaxing with a good book in the sunshine right on the ocean front. In fact, we loved this property and setting so much we pretty much stayed right there the entire week with only a few forays into Roberts Creek and Sechelt for various markets and the Writers' Festival (thank you Janey for the recommendation!) Janey and John are kind and generous hosts and really made our stay memorable. I highly recommend this property for couples looking to get away from it all in a very quiet, peaceful and beautiful nature setting! We most certainly look forward to returning here.
We are so happy you took advantage of all this private ocean front property has to offer, especially the kayaks and swimming. We welcome you back anytime.
Our short stay was fantastic
Janey and John are fantastic hosts, the suite had it all and the view is just spectacular. We can just give 5 stars and 5 thumbs up. Coming back!
So glad you managed to get the R and R you needed after a busy time in your lives

Spectacular Quiet Get Away on Sunshine Coast!
What a fantastic location for a holiday! Everything was the way it was advertised. The unit has a great ocean view of the bay. The unit and everything in it is clean and very well maintained. It was super quiet, which was something we were looking for.
We found hiking and mountain biking right out the door. The beach is just down the hill, with calm water the whole time (we were there). Local stores and Sechelt are a short drive away. The unit is stocked with some basics to help you out.
This was our first VRBO type experience, and we were pleasantly surprised. The hosts were prompt with email responses throughout the process. Janey provided local tips and suggestions long before our travel date to help plan, as well as during our stay. Both Janey and John were great to talk to, offering local info when needed. They also referred me to a fishing charter that turned out to be fantastic, I would not have found that connection without them!
Highly recommend, we would stay there again!
Delightful to have you here. It appeared that you were at “adult camp” while your kids were at the Y camp. Welcome anytime
