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 Apartment in 2000

Why Janey Talbot chose Sunshine Coast B

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 that open ocean and so you are often welcome to borrow our 2 kayaks for use in the bay.

What makes this Apartment 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.

It is great for cyclists, mountain bikers, golfers, kayakers, SUP's. There is easy access to the water. Also a great place to be lazy, sleep late and recoup from city life with beach walks.

                                                              Highly recommend.

                                                              So glad you were able to explore so much of the Coast in 2 days, hiking trails and the first market of the season. Return anytime

                                                              We really enjoyed our time here. Beautiful, peaceful, and just like it advertises. Everything you need is here at the house. The host were so accommodating. Great communication throughout the booking process and I would highly recommend this property.

                                                              Well designed small apartment

                                                              The views were not as spectacular as hoped.

                                                              Beautiful views!

                                                              Great place to stay for a couple. Janey greeted us with fresh blueberries and cherry tomatoes from her garden! We loved the deck overlooking the ocean and enjoyed our first evening sipping wine and taking in the view. We also saw a family of deer walking through the back yard. The kitchen is well equipped and we cooked all our meals there. The location was very peaceful and secluded yet still close enough to town if you needed anything. We have stayed at many places along the sunshine coast but this was one of the best and we would definitely stay here again.

                                                              My husband and I decided to go to the Sunshine Coast after the area was highly recommended by locals on a former trip to BC. Upon arrival we were taken back by the beautiful, expansive view of the bay. We were kindly greeted by John and Janey who offered a plethora of advice on what to do and where to go. They even helped to transport our mountain bikes from the shop in town to their place so we could catch the trails from there. If you're a mountain biking/outdoor adventure enthusiast this is the place for you! The trails were epic!

                                                              We took Janey's recommendation and booked spa treatments in advance at the Painted Boat Spa which proved to be one of the best spa experiences we've ever had, followed by happy hour on their outdoor deck with gorgeous views ---a must! John let us borrow a few yoga mats and we loved sleeping in, waking up to the view, enjoying tea on the deck and doing some yoga before going out. We loved coming back to the full kitchen where we prepared meals, listened to music, had drinks on the deck, walked down to the water and watched eagles perched on nearby trees. The unit is fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy a quiet getaway just far enough from the hustle and bustle. Yet, we were able to fit in a full day in Whistler before heading back to Vancouver.

                                                              This place is a great bargain and the hosts are wonderful!

                                                              You two took full advantage of all the Coast has to offer, mountain biking, hiking, beach walk and the spa. Loved meeting you both. You have a real joie de vive and we would welcome you back anytime

                                                              Beautiful carriage house, ample space for all your vacation needs

                                                              This house has everything a couple could need plus more! Take advantage of the provided kayaks and check out the bay, take a short drive and check out Smugglers Cove, or simply walk down the beach - left to the Provincial Park - to the right until you reach the end of the bay (make sure to look under rocks at low tide for starfish!) Enjoyed the lovely balcony at every meal plus during hotter weather a cooler place to sit in the evening. Fun to watch for wildlife with the binoculars. Spent 5 nights and each day we did a different activity, all within a 45 minute drive from the house, so central! Thank you Janey and John for your hospitality during our stay! We will be back to the Sunshine Coast again in the future!

                                                              The property is easy access waterfront and beach; walking possible both right and left along the ocean shore from the property. Within 8 minute walk you are in a quiet Provincial Park, Sargent's Bay Park. On booking we will provide you with our personal Top Ten list to help you anticipate your visit to the a Coast.
