About Jeff and Toni Bowra

Our family had owned another cabin on this beach since the 1960s. We bought out the rest of the family in 2008 and rented the previous property until we moved down the beach this spring. There are only 2 properties that we would have traded for and this is one of them. Once our four children have moved out this will be our primary home.

Jeff and Toni Bowra purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Jeff and Toni Bowra chose Sechelt

It is a much bigger property, farther away from the road and has a bigger house. We also get sunlight longer in the day and see the full sunset. We would never have left the beach and we are really happy that we made the move. We have shared our cabin with many people over the years and several of them come back every summer. We have a big family and always entertain lots of friends so we wanted more space to do that!

What makes this cottage unique

Big Spectacular Property.

West facing pebble beach.

Beautiful view and Beautiful Beach.

A casual and comfortable cottage in a remarkably beautiful setting next to the water's edge

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Jeff and Toni's lovely cottage could not have been better. A well stocked kitchen, comfortable and tasteful furnishings, a lovely patio and yard, a BBQ, a kayak, and an incredible setting - what else could you want.

Jeff and Toni were immediately responsive to the couple of minor questions we had and proved to be the quintessential hosts, providing the extras that make you want to keep coming back. The South African wines for our South African visitors was an especially thoughtful touch.

We really felt at home here and look forward to returning when we can.

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Very enjoyable location-- very comfortable house. The rental was very clean and came with lots of dishes, bedding and equipment. Our only criticism was it could use some floor lamps.

Amazing cabin!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at the property for a weekend. The two nights were way too short. None of us wanted to leave. The cabin is absolutely gorgeous. When we arrived it was super clean and welcoming. We spent as much time as we could outside though. There is a fire pit right down at the ocean and a HUGE covered deck. Jeff and Toni were amazing to deal with before, during and after our stay. I have nothing but positive things to say about our visit and would love to get to stay at the property again.

Magical Christmas in an amazing beachside retreat

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fairy tale Christmas at this lovely spot in Sechelt/Sunshine Coast. The accommodations were cozy and welcoming - but the layout was very spacious and the kitchen well stocked with plenty of dishes and appliances.. Also the place so nicely decorated..and the property was spectacular. The website pictures cannot express the beauty of the beach and the setting. When we opened the door upon arrival all we could say was " Wow" "WOW" totally exceeded our expectations. Greatly appreciated the hosts cutting down some Charlie brown Christmas trees for us and leaving plenty of wood for the fireplace. Just a 5 minute drive from the town of Sechelt and many outdoor activities.. but really, all I wanted to do was sit on the couch with a cup of coffee and soak in the amazing view. Highly recommend this place! There were 4 adults and one toddler, but plenty of room to accommodate more people without feeling crowded. From the inspirational artwork, to the custom bottle of wine, to the cleanliness and well maintained inside and outside, it is evident that the owners love this place too!

Perfect Weekend Getaway with kids

  • 5 of 5

We were two young families with kids under 5 and loved the house for the view, access to the beach and great rooms. Everything was clean and well maintained. We can't wait to go back!

So much to love!

  • 5 of 5

This property is truly a gem. We have rented many times on the Sunshine Coast were very impressed with this property. To begin with, it is easy to find and there is a flat, paved driveway across the large front lawn from the highway to the front of the house. This was a pleasant surprise as we are used to steep driveways from the highway down to the water front. There is ample parking in the front of the house and a great covered deck in the back. There is also a large open space in the back for those who enjoy the sun!

The interior of the house is well laid out. There are four bedrooms and two bathrooms. We enjoyed the large eat in kitchen and the views of the water from the living room and back bedroom. It's alot of space but it still felt warm and cozy with just the two of us. At night you can hear the waves as you drift off to sleep and one day we saw a bear run across the yard!

The house was very clean and we have never seen as much extra dish ware, flat ware, sheets, blankets, pillows, etc. as were provided at this location. Very thoughtful and helpful!

Two points to be aware of...the mattress in the master bedroom is abit old. We found it to be somewhat lumpy. Also, there were scented diffusers in the house. We had to keep the door to the front bedroom closed as the scent in the room was quite strong. We also had to remove the diffuser from the living room and from the master bedroom and put them outside. After that the scent dissipated and was not an issue.

We had an excellent experience at this property. It is a great find for anyone who wants to relax and enjoy the coast with family or just that one significant other.
