About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)
Situated on a small hill adjacent to the shore, it’s only steps to the beach and the historic Redrooffs Trail that will take you to the Halfmoon Bay General Store, the Upper Crust Gourmet Store and the government wharf.
Watch bald eagles, blue herons and osprey share the sky. Closer to shore, you’ll see seals, otters and a great variety of waterfowl. Sunsets are spectacular and provide many photo opportunities.
In the summertime there is a steady stream of boat traffic as beautiful yachts head up Welcome Passage on their way to the famous cruising grounds of Desolation Sound. In the evenings, Alaska bound cruise ships can be seen heading up the Strait of Georgia in the golden glow of the setting sun. There is always something to see and there are many recreational activities for visitors.
Kayak in Halfmoon Bay or head over to Buccaneer Bay on Thormanby Island where you can enjoy one of the finest sandy beaches in the Strait of Georgia. Play golf at one of our challenging courses or go hiking on the many trails. Drive up to Egmont (35minutes) and enjoy the easy 45 minute hike into the famous Skookumchuk Narrows where you can view one of the largest and fastest tidal rapids in the world running at over 14 knots! Take an easy hike up Pender Hill in Irvine’s Landing and enjoy spectacular views of Pender Harbour (sometimes called “Venice of the North”), the Strait of Georgia and Vancouver Island.
Go fishing. There is excellent fishing with guides available in Secret Cove and other locations. Closer to home, you can try your luck right off the Halfmoon Bay government dock. Rent a boat from Buccaneer Marina in Secret Cove and explore the coastline and islands.
Or, just stay put, enjoy the cottage and relax. Sit on the deck and read your favourite book. Watch one of our many movies or check out what's available on Netflix. Soak in the hot tub after going for your walk. The opportunities for your enjoyment are endless.
Read some of the many comments from our guests and then check our online calendar for availability. We would love to host you for your special vacation or weekend getaway.

Year Purchased: 1983
About the owner: Our family purchased the property in 1981 and then had the cottage built to lockup by a local contractor. We spent the next few years making our cottage into a very special, comfortable weekend home and have continued to make many improvements over the years. We chose locating on the Sunshine Coast for it's proximity to Greater Vancouver and also for it's unique location. It's only accessible via the ferry (a short 40 minute sailing) which makes it special. The Sunshine Coast enjoys a very relaxed lifestyle and provides residents and visitors with a great variety of activities not to mention the spectacular outdoors. We enjoy sharing our special retreat with guests who come from all over Western Canada, Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Texas, Hawaii and also some from Europe. It gives us great pleasure to welcome our guests to our little piece of paradise.
Why the Owner Chose Halfmoon Bay, BC, Canada:
We chose the Sunshine Coast for it's proximity to Greater Vancouver and it's laid back lifestyle coupled with lots of outdoor activities. See above for more details.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our cottage has all of the amenities of a house in the city, yet we have total privacy on a 1/2 acre of semi waterfront with spectacular views of Halfmoon Bay and beyond. We enjoy having our boat moored in front of the property and easy access to many cruising destinations. Our grandchildren enjoy the playground on the property, the hot tub and many other outdoor activities.
