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

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.

Annual Girls Getaway...

  • 5 of 5

We have been going on annual seaside getaways for the last 38 years and this is one of the most relaxed places around . Sechelt is a great location and we lucked out with good weather most days. We won't talk about the thunder and lightening that we had the day before we left! But typically on the "west coast" , you just have to wait a couple of hours and the weather changes.

When booking this property I had a few questions and the owner, Jeff, was helpful and quick to respond to any concerns.

This waterfront home was perfect for the 3 of us. There is actually 4 sleeping areas in total (6 beds). The beds were comfy and the sheets were soft and inviting. There are 2 bathrooms, a laundry room, spacious living room with a wood burning fireplace , and a fantastic view through to the large partially covered patio. Lots of outdoor spaces for lounging , sipping wine, reading a good book , and watching the waves/seals. Outstanding property for any kind of get-away. The beach is rocky but so beautiful. There is a convenient bench to sit on just before the beach ... a good place to go and watch the sunset and cruise ships passing at dusk.

Another great aspect of this home is that it is all on one level ... no stairs in sight. Great for someone with any mobility issues. The internet was quick and reliable. There were plenty of games and books available if you wanted to do more than just watch the waves.

The kitchen has most everything you might need for any meals that you want to prepare . Sechelt is 5 minutes away for any shopping/dining you might want to do . We tend to do our own cooking and had no problems finding any and all ingredients that we needed. There is a fish market just down from the Trail Bay Mall so it is easy to get your fill of seafood. Clayton's grocery store , a liquor store, and a Rexall drug store are also in the mall just a few minutes from the house.

If hiking is your thing.... check out the Smuggler's Cove hike and the short walk along Sargaent's Bay. So many other places to walk/hike if you have the time.

We so enjoyed our visit this year that we have already booked for next year. All of us are looking forward to another fabulous sunny week away in this lovely waterfront home.

Enjoy your stay in Sechelt.... would easily recommend this beautiful waterfront home.

Wonderful stay!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful little cabin right on the beach! We had such bad luck with weather, it poured the whole time, which was so frustrating because I could see how amazing this place would be in the sunshine! Definitely coming back for summer.

TONS of seating areas, lots of patio space, lots of bedding. They even left us a welcome bottle of wine :D

Beautiful home and a wonderful time, thank you.

Perfect reunion destination

  • 5 of 5

We found this piece of paradise on VRBO and are so glad we booked it! We had three generations vacationing together - perfect location and accommodation for all. Extremely clean and well-kept property which has been recently been updated. My parents are in their 90's and my Dad has mobility/vision issues, so we really appreciated that everything was on one level, including the outsideareas right out to the water.

Lots of outside furniture and covered patios so we could all have a place to relax regardless of the weather. Great location - close enough to Sechelt for shopping, but far enough away so you are "getting away from it all". Lucky enough to have seen seals, sea lions, a small minke whale, an otter on the beach, plus numerous seabirds including bald eagles.

Jeff was very good to deal with and always answered my emails promptly. We plan on returning one day.
