  • Beautiful clean lake, well stocked and comfortable home.

    "My husband and I loved our time at Ruby Lake. The water is perfect for swimming and paddling in. We paddle boarded, kayaked, and canoed around the shores. We found the rope swing on the far side of the lake, whoohoo! Your home was welcoming, comfortable, clean, well organized and well stocked. It is also HUGE! Next time we are bringing more friends and family to stay. The back porch is lovely for coffee in the morning to catch the first rays of the sun, and later in the day to get out of the heat. The sunny big deck is perfect for barbecues and dining. (I would love to see a lounger or two on the deck for those of us who want to read a book in the sunshine.) Would recommend going to Ruby Lake Resort to watch the beavers in the lagoon. We are so grateful that you allow pets. Our fur baby enjoyed her swim time too. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. Hope to return soon."

  • Very Happy

    "We just spent 4 days in this home and we were very happy. Mike was excellent to work with. He gets back to you quickly and was patient with me when work distracted me from getting him some paperwork. It was one of the most enjoyable holidays we've had in a long time. Things to know. -The home isn't overly large but has 3 distinct bedrooms as well as a big loft. 2 of the bedrooms are smallish but quite functional. The 3rd bedroom is quite large. It is an open loft on top of some steep stairs. There is also a loft at the top of a removable ladder that is perfect for kids old enough to climb a 10 foot ladder. Our youngest was 8 and it took her a couple minutes to get over her fear. I think the kids liked the idea of having their own private room where adults were not likely to visit. -The kitchen is big and wide open. It had everything that we needed. -The outside area is really large and the kids fished off the dock for hours. You can see the fish come right up to your hook. (Not a good location for crabs and we had no luck off the dock.) -There is no garbage service and you need to take garbage with you. Mike has some suggestions on where to take it. -There are a few smaller stores but you will want to bring groceries from home or on your way through Sechelt. -It is a great location to hike to the Skookumchuk Narrows. My wife and I ran to Skookumchuk Narrows directly from the house. It was almost exactly 1 hour round trip and we are In mediocre shape. You can consider driving to the trail head as opposed to starting right at the house. -If you can arrange a trip to Princess Louisa Inlet it is well worth it. -There is no cell coverage and the wifi coverage is inconsistent. It seemed like the wifi worked ok when only 1 device was connected and it was a time of day when neighbours might not be using the same bandwidth. You will be happiest if you just put away the devices although I know it's easier said then done. They have a home phone and it works well. Just remember you won't be able to call anyone from your party in the Egmont area on their cell phone even if you use the home phone. I would highly recommend this place to anyone unless you absolutely need to be connected to the Internet for work."

  • 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!"

  • Wonderful - highly recommend

    "We stayed in the King suite for four days and had an amazing time. The suite was beautiful and had all the amenities we needed and more. We really enjoyed spending time reading on the porch while watching the boats in the harbour. So relaxing and peaceful! And the king sized bed - so comfortable. Helen and Michel were wonderful hosts, providing us with great information and going out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Great place. We were very happy we chose to stay there."
