Overview

Halfmoon Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

If you feel 'bushed,' sail to Sunshine Coast, a short ripple from Vancouver. Smell the clean, fresh air. Barooga has lush berry bushes and a path to our private beach on Georgia Strait. Focus on bald eagles, hummingbirds, loons, and jays. Turn over a beach stone, let the ocean life tickle your palms. Hike up, relax on the deck with a cool drink. Inhale the view, islands, lighthouses near and far, cruise ships dancing toward the Inside Passage and Alaska.

Fully furnished, three bedroom, private waterfront house for weekly vacation retreat, situated between Sargeant and Halfmoon Bays. Two hours from Vancouver, forty minutes of which is a pleasant ferry ride across Howe Sound. The main three-piece bathroom has a shower. The second washroom has a toilet and a basin.

Kitchen has everything including a corkscrew. Sleeps up to six people. Gas barbecue on large deck. Paved two car driveway. Path to a private beach through a park-like setting. The spacious, private deck with the view is exceptionally functional with the covered and well-lit area.

Alder and maple firewood is stacked next to a fabulous fireplace. Light the fire, have a crackling, cozy conversation. Reading in the old fashioned way is a unique experience in Barooga's natural, peaceful setting.

Great Sunshine Coast / Barooga Experience!

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from seven wonderful days at Barooga! Likely the highlight was accomplishing the Barooga Grind and enjoying the beautiful beach! This was a perfect spot to move about on the coast line, from Gibsons up to Egmount we enjoyed gunking in each and every unique spot! Halmoon Bay General Store and Café was a wonderful experience, they have a tiny little beach near the general store that was a treat to sit at and drink our coffee! Views views views... we enjoyed every morning, afternoon and evening, we simply could not soak enough in. We enjoyed visits from all kinds of wild life, the birds were amazing, the deers beautiful and the orca whales that entered the area were magnificent! A day trip to Garden Bay and Irvines landing was great, we also enjoyed the Pender Harbour Jazz Festival. Thrift store hunting, walking about in the various small towns and simply relaxing at Barooga made this such a wonderful trip.

Robyn and John have outfitted the home perfectly, you will need nothing but yourselves to enjoy this beautiful piece of property. They are amazzzzzing hosts and we enjoyed our brief time getting to know them. You can't go wrong booking this place.

West coast heaven with a bunch of East coast lovers

  • 5 of 5
We booked this place for a west coast family vacation with our western family members from Vancouver and Calgary. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place. Our three adult boys enjoyed fires in the yard every evening and supplied us old timers with s'mores as we watched from the relative comfort of the deck.
Evening BBQs on the deck every night offered such treats as whales frolicking regularly most evenings and we even saw a fantastic meteor streak through the sky one day at dusk. Sunsets were also beautiful, as were the stars and lights from Vancouver Island across the Georgia Strait.
Our days were filled with hikes to local areas, like Skoocumchuck Rapids or Baker Beach.
We were able to do most of our own cooking in the well-equipped kitchen and saved loads of money. Plus we loved being able to have family dinner time together again.
Thank you Robyn, for giving us this wonderful opportunity with our boys (and eventually their girls) and allowing us to stay an extra day. It was hard to leave and I hope we will be back again some day soon.

Serenity

  • 5 of 5
We are parents with two kids: 11 & 2, plus wife's sister with a teenager daughter from overseas. Yes, so different ages that only an ultimate comfort could satisfy everyone. And, we got it there as well as absolutely stunning views from the deck, windows, fire pit bench, and lawn (telling you as a photo-hobbyist). The place is overlooking a lighthouse on a tiny island. Read about this landmark in books provided at the living room, and you would wish to visit the island. (Well, I had a big zoom lens though - good excuse this time:). Consult with Robyn for your fan time outside Barooga, and you will have plenty of activities every day. But, don't forget to walk on the beach every morning. Serenity... All is yours, nobody else around. This is what will stay in your memory for years, especially if you would forget about time while being busy with your camera soaking in the nature beauty and find yourself somewhere near Sargent Bay, like I did one day. I, also, should mention the zigzag path down to the beach because it makes the Barooga property to appear huge, which I never expected by looking at the website pictures. This is quite something: "blackberry bushes in the jungles". I loved them. We had a wonderful time, and did not want to leave.

Had the opportunity to stay at Barooga with friends and family. I dream about going back with the family and children soon. John and Robin are incredible people and hosts! If you have the opportunity or are thinking about a magical get away, Barooga is second to none!

fantastic !!!!

  • 5 of 5
The photos here just don't do 'Barooga' justice. This place is fantastic. The views simply took our breathe away. Barooga was just what the doctor ordered for us to relax and unwind and enjoy the sun and views by sitting on the very large and sheltered deck. The accommodation is large, spacious, clean with everything that you should need. We even saw a pod of Orca's from the deck which were close to the beach.Definitely recommend and excellent value for money! We did not want to leave!

Holiday Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My family and I just returned from a fantastic week's vacation at Barooga. We couldn't imagine a better holiday, time and space for fun activities and quiet time. Barooga was everything we had hoped, and more. It was clean, quiet, spacious, and fully stocked with everything we could want. It had a huge lawn for games for the kids, large rooms, access to a private beach, a private hot tub, a large covered deck, and plenty of rainy-day activities just in case. The view from the main living area, the hot tub, and from the deck was unbelievable, nearly 180 degrees of ocean and sky. We ate outside every day to enjoy it.
Barooga has a great location, close enough to the highway, restaurants of Sechelt, hiking, beaches, lakes etc., that we found lots to do, especially with Robyn and John's excellent advice for fun family activities, and is situated on a quiet road instead of the highway.
Robyn and John were welcoming, helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly, but respectful of our privacy as well. They are perfect hosts/owners and maintain a fabulous property. We plan to visit again as soon as we can!!
