CEDAR MOON BEACH HOUSE - SPECTACULAR, YEAR ROUND, OCEANFRONT, FIREPLACE & CANOE

Cortes Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible beds, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)

Cedar Moon Beach House offers a spectacular oceanfront vacation retreat for weekly holidays on Cortes Island, British Columbia, Canada. Including a stunning 180-degree waterviews toward the magical mountains that tower over distant islands. Cedar Moon is located in Desolation Sound, the world famous boating destination for yachting & kayaking. The house is backed by forest and stands 400 feet of secluded beach covered with seashells, plus offers 12-acres of quiet forest with trails from your doorstep, complimentary canoe & rowboat to explore the coastline.

Cedar Moon is a spacious home, an open post and beam design, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows facing the ocean, French doors open to waterfront sundecks off the living room, dining room, and master bedroom.

Other highlights include a wood burning fireplace, deluxe en-suite with deep soaker tub, a sleeping loft that children love, a private den for writers, an antique upright piano for the musically inspired, and a large Games Room with fun for the whole family.

In the 4 private bedrooms you will find luxuriously soft Egyptian Cotton linens, down-filled designer duvets, and feather pillows for your comfort. The house is fully equipped with linens & dishes to accommodate between 2-8 persons. If you need accommodation for additional people as part of a reunion or gathering, then consider adding Huckleberry Hide-Away on the next 10-acre lot north of Cedar Moon, which can accommodate another 1-4 persons see VRBO listing #174015 for more details.

We are committed to a perma-culture seaside garden that is a sanctuary for meditation, abundant with color, food, and flowers. We welcome your puttering and invite you to gather the organic fruits of your labors including herbs, salad greens, edible flowers and berries.

If you are planning to take an island sabbatical to write that book or just for a long healing retreat. Then consider renting for a month or more between September & June, when we offer special long-term rates depending on the length of your stay. The perfect place for writers and artists to inspire your imagination & renew your spirit.

We've been sailing and exploring the westcoast for the past 25 years.

Sandra purchased this house in 1988

We bought this beach house because of the stunning oceanfront views -- if you were any closer to the water you would be on a boat, with swimming right off the rocks at high tide!

Twelve quiet acres of cedar & fir trees right down to the beach, with miles of undeveloped seashore to explore south of Cedar Moon, pick fresh seafood when in season.

A VERY SPECIAL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Cedar Moon for a small family reunion and it was very memorable, and Philip and Sandra made us feel very welcome. Most of the party arrived by car but a couple of us flew up on Corilair from Vancouver which was a very glamorous way to arrive. I loved the way the house was built , in that you walked up the stairs to the most stupendous view anywhere, ever. Its incredible. Added touches like the fresh garden veggies were much appreciated. I highly recommend Cedar Moon and would happily stay there again.

YOUR VERY OWN ECO-SYSTEM

  • 5 of 5
Cedar Moon Beach House is one of the loveliest spots we know anywhere on the planet. Sitting on a log on the beach watching the sun rise above Desolation Sound surrounded by silence so deep you can hear a bird's wings flapping as it flies along the shore - such an experience is priceless and wonderfully restorative for city dwellers like us. When you step outside it seems that you gaze not only on your own piece of shoreline but on your very own ecosystem! The tranquility and beauty of Cedar Moon, and the sense of being far from the madness of consumer culture, make a visit here a precious gift for the soul and spirit. The vast, exquisite natural surroundings and lovely interiors of both house and cottage are matched only by Philip and Sandra's gift for hospitality and the way in which they have made their whole property into an ongoing work of art with its trails, oyster shell designs and subtle illuminations. We always anticipate a return to this land with huge delight and enthusiasm. It's one of the magic spots on the face of the earth, and it's owned by two of the most warm and gracious people you'll ever meet anywhere.
