  • Wonderful beach holiday but would also be awesome in winter! You will NOT be disappointed!

    "My husband and 2 late teen/adult age children just got back from an incredible vacation at Mark and Barb's beautiful cabin in Halfmoon Bay! The pictures don't do it justice! This is a low bank waterfront property RIGHT ON the beach (its a bit rocky as most are on the Sunshine Coast - bring your watershoes) and a big front lawn DIRECTLY off the beach. They had 2 kayaks and a canoe which we could use which we definitely did - it was awesome! The beach was great for walking and collecting shells, rocks, and driftwood. We brought our own lounge chairs and spent the afternoon enjoying the sun on the front lawn but never felt too hot because of the beautiful ocean breeze. If we did, the ocean was lovely to swim in. We also built a campfire on the beach right in front of the lawn one evening which was so beautiful. The great room and kitchen of the house may have the quaint woodsy look of a cabin as seen in the pictures, but don't let the pictures deceive you, it not only has tons of windows overlooking the breathtaking view, it has all the amenities of home - a kitchen with a dishwasher, microwave, tons of dishes, pots and pans, whatever you could need; a TV with lots of cable channels, a fireplace, even games provided; and a lovely deck with a BBQ and table, chairs and umbrella overlooking the amazing view. On the upper level, the look was totally modern with 3 good sized bedrooms and a full bathroom - the master had a gorgeous view of the ocean. Also there is another bathroom downstairs off the lawn if you're in a hurry! Although the temperatures were starting to climb during our stay, the house is well shaded in the morning so never got too hot (except when we baked something in the oven but the fan they provided cooled things off nicely). In the winter, each of the bedrooms has their own thermostat so I'm sure it would be just as beautiful and cozy. Although, as the owners say, they have a work building on the property that they may be at during the day, it is totally separate and well behind the house - we never saw them until we checked out. It definitely felt like we had our own place but it was nice to have them available to orient us and we knew they were available if we needed anything. Our plan was to make this our base and explore the Sunshine Coast but we were so enamored, we never left the house! So relaxing and comfortable. A truly great vacation!"

  • Great Location

    "This was a very comfortable place to stay. The hosts made every effort to ensure a warm welcome. We loved the close proximity to downtown Ganges, and the fact that an awesome, friendly , fabulous bakery was right across the street to get fresh croissants and cinnamon buns for breakfast . We really enjoyed the Saturday market, the art galleries and book stores in Ganges. Hope to make a return trip"

  • Amazing even in a storm

    "We anticipated the weather to be stormy for the time that we were there and were cautious on the drive up. Upon arriving the view from the dining room took my breath away! The house was way bigger than I expected. With a large open kitchen, dining room and living room where you could look out at the ocean. Watching the waves and the brave surfers was a highlight! Point being, even in stormy weather the view and this property is incredible so don't let that deter you, and storm watching is really neat! Meters from the beach we walked along the shoreline-make sure you bring a rain jacket. I was super impressed and happy to find gum boots in the garage that we could borrow! :) very handy. I had a room downstairs which felt like my own suite. Beautiful rock fireplace and big windows and besy of all, the bed was sooo comfy. Really nice pillows, super comfortable bed which I was very grateful for. There are 3 bedrooms and a really neat little office area which could also sleep a couple people so there is plenty of space in this giant house. Did I mention it is also immaculate?! Super clean. 3 bathrooms. Washer/dryer. Feels secluded but it's only a few minute drive down the road before you hit restaurants and stores. I highly recommend and would return in a heartbeat!!"

  • Couldn't have asked for a better stay!

    "This being the first time booking a trip to Panorama, I was very nervous about finding accommodations for our group of 9 adult skier and snowboarders. I was absolutely blown away with this property. It was perfectly set up for us. Whether you have a group of couples or have kids with you, I would recommend this house over and over. If you ski/snowboard, hike, golf or just want to get away, look no further! Thanks again to the owners for renting us their beautiful house and making our stay more than we could ask for!"
