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

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.

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.

A little piece of paradise on the Sunshine Coast!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the Sunshine Coast and the coach house was a perfect choice of accommodation for us. It was a great location, not too far from town but still nice and secluded. Although we wanted to see all the sights, it was hard to tear ourselves away from the deck and the beautiful view. We found the suite very well outfitted and comfortable - just as shown in the photos. We enjoyed walks up and down the beach each day. John and Janey were wonderful hosts - there if we needed them or wanted to chat but gave us our privacy as well. They provided great suggestions of places to see - Smuggler's Cove and Skookumchuk Narrows (check the tide charts for best times) were definitely worth the hikes.

Great jump-off point to explore the Sunshine Coast

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our 40 th wedding anniversary on the Sunshine Coast and spent two weeks enjoying the sightseeing, hiking, tours, pubs and terrific seafood. The Coach House was in a perfect location...mid way along the lower Sunshine Coast. The Coach House itself was comfortable, afforded beautiful views, and was excellent value. We appreciated the excellent suggestions Janey and John made and had an extraordinary experience as a result.

Great Location And Setting

  • 5 of 5

This property was definitely as advertised. The views were even better than the photos - which is rare for an online listing. The kitchen and living area was set up quite nicely and had everything you need. Very quiet and peaceful setting, but still close enough to town for supplies/errands. So much great mountain biking/hiking in the area to explore. The bedroom was quite small, but it's not where you want to spend your time anyway in a setting such as this! Would definitely stay again when back on the Sunshine Coast.

Owner's Response: You two had a great holiday balance of activity, hiking and wine on the beach with lots of down time for competitive cribbage, cooking and reading. Glad you found your favourite wine at our corner store, they have some great gourmet food too. Enjoyed our chats in the garden with both of you. You are welcome anytime

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place the pictures are exactly how it looks. Upon our arrival John and Janey were both there to greet us and let us in with a short explanation of how everything works. The table was set with 2 place settings and wine glasses this place had everything you need including the balcony with a barbecue and a great view all just steps away from the water.

We can not express how excellent they were to deal with they were so accommodating. Every morning we picked wild blackberries, there was a small garden for our use as well. There is a beautiful trail just steps away. We have no complaints and if we are ever visiting Halfmoom Bay again this is where we will stay.

Gorgeous waterfront getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted a quick romantic getaway from Vancouver, and this little gem did not disappoint. Janey is excellent to deal with, though we never got to meet in person. She was cycling through France! She is thorough and professional. This unit is behind the main house (which is stunning and she rents that out, also), and it's above the parking garage. Don't let that dissuade you. The unit is fabulous, and the view is spectacular. You are high on the steep waterfront property, which allows for gorgeous Halfmoon Bay views. This is very private, quiet, and well-appointed. Also, clean as a whistle, which is great for us, as we are a bit of a neat freak when it comes to renting out a vacation property. She doesn't charge a cleaning fee, but asks that you clean the suite before you leave; just strip down the bedding and tuck that away in a corner in the gorgeous bathroom, and they'll look after the laundry; basically, return the suite to how you found it. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need, and the pictures you see are exactly what you get. It's completely private and quiet. Exactly what we were looking for. Two great touches are the binoculars they leave for you so you can scan across the Bay, and her awesome herb garden where you can pick your fresh herbs for your meals, if you are eating in. Highly recommended. We'll be back!
