About Jennifer Mckenzie


My name is Jen, and my husband Brent and I would love to welcome you to our little town of Roberts Creek, and our "Coastal Cottage".

I have lived in RC since 1968, meeting my husband 20+ years ago, & we have been lucky enough to have been able to raise two great kids in this wonderful community of ours.

We own a small contracting company together and I also work as a travel consultant which over the years has offered a world of travel experience to me.

In turn, I have tried to include everything that I so enjoy while away travelling into our little cottage, in order to make your stay as worry free and enjoyable as possible!

We hope you enjoy!

See you soon!

Jen and Brent

Great !

  • 5 of 5

We are a family with young kids and we loved it ! The cottage is very well decorated and functional, the garden is gorgeous. You hear birds chirping (so many hummingbirds), you see squirrels and of course the fish in the pond were a hit with our kids ! Jen prepared us some homemade goodies, and we found nice toiletries, she thought about everything. We felt very welcome. Thanks again Jen, we will come back !

Beautiful! Perfectly situated! Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with our ten year old for a short family getaway and this beautiful little cottage was better than home away from home! Jen is such a thoughtful hostess and we had everything we needed to make our stay memorable and so comfortable. Quiet but so central it was a great little oasis from which to explore the beautiful coast. Highly recommend this cottage

Perfect cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this sweet cottage during our stay on the Sunshine Coast. The space was spotless and comfortable for 5 of us. The outdoor space is unbelievably beautiful. The beach toys and towels were a game changing extra; it made play time and swimming that much better. The hosts were perfect; Jen was quick to respond to emails and questions and was super accommodating. We would highly recommend this property!

A beautiful, tranquil place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Coastal Cottage for 10 days in May 2018. It was beautiful weather and the property was amazing. The cottage is a very special place with beautiful gardens, a short walk to the village of Roberts Creek and the beach.

We had a lovely time, resting, touring and exploring. Staying at the Coastal cottage made our vacation. The cottage itself was beautifully decorated, very clean and well organized and private. Jen has thought of every detail to make your stay comfortable..from a well stocked kitchen to fresh robes and slippers, beach towels and mats, books and pamphlets about the area and a games cupboard.

Upon arrival and to our surprise, Jen had thoughtfully stocked the kitchen with a basket of fruit, wine and cheese, fresh bread and muffins, bacon, eggs, juice, tea, coffee and Roberts Creek homemade jam! It was a wonderful welcome and was very much appreciated.

I would highly recommend this property.

Thank you Jen for your hospitality.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

It was the previous reviews that got us to go ahead and rent this cottage. Those reviews do not lie. This cottage is exceptional! It is bright, open and clean. It is lacking nothing. There is so much attention to detail by Jennifer that it feels like you are arriving at an upscale hotel! We knew that Jennifer provided some items upon your arrival but we were blown away at the thoughtfulness and amount! Snacks for our arrival, all sorts of breakfast items and delicious baking! She even got my husband gluten free muffins!

The grounds are beautifully landscaped and the pond is lovely. We loved watching the hummingbirds at the feeder located in front of the kitchen window. The kitchen is bright open concept, extremely well stocked and plenty spacious. The beds are comfortable and the set up worked very well for our family of 4. Our older teen slept in the lovely cozy second bedroom that has a very handy washer and dryer.

Our 12-year-old boy slept on the sofa bed and was very comfortable. The deck is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the sun. We were in the area to bike at Coast Gravity Park. It is about 20 minutes away. It is an exceptional bike park. The ocean is a 5-minute easy walk boasting beautiful views.

Jennifer is a great hostess. We would definitely return when we come back to bike. Thank you again for everything!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Marie! It was a pleasure meeting you and your family, and we would love to have you all back anytime you can make it down to the Coast again! You will have to come in the summer when it's warm and the boys can skimboard and swim down on Roberts Creek beach....when the tide is out it's a great sandy beach! Then you can really enjoy the deck and the sunshine, along with all the outdoor activities that our area has to offer. The trails just up the road at Cliff Gilker Park/B&K Logging Road (next to the golf course) are great for mountain biking as time you will have to try them out. Again, thank you for coming and hope to see you soon! Bye for now... Jen

A gorgeous hideaway with fabulous hosts

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most comfortable and well-equipped holiday homes we have ever experienced. We stayed for a week with our two young children. Its location is perfect for relaxing at the beach, heading out on kayaks, hiking and mountain biking. There's also a great casual eaterie (The Gumboot) a few minutes' walk away.

All of that aside, what sets this place apart is the wonderful warm welcome and hospitality of the hosts. Jen met us on arrival and showed us around and was then always on hand if we needed her (or to provide helpful info) but gave us our privacy. She provided tasty baking treats and lots of breakfast provisions (not to mention JAM! :) which added to the feeling of relaxation and being looked after.

Thank you Jen and Brent for a wonderful week at your cottage! We really hope to return!
