My husband Kent and I have recently retired to our dream life on beautiful B.C.'s Sunshine Coast. I was a high school art teacher and now am an artist and jewelry designer. Kent, a retired member of the Vancouver Police Department is constantly occupied with the care and up-keep of our home, cottage, and grounds. Our home sits on an acre waterfront lot overlooking some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world. We look forward to sharing this amazing place with many guests. Welcome!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2007

We built our cottage (carriage house) first and lived there while our main home was being built. We chose this location because it was simply the most beautiful place we had ever seen. We have travelled many places but believe nothing compares to Daniel Point! It may be off the beaten track for some but that is why we love it here!

The sunsets are unforgettable! Wildlife abounds all around; multiple pairs of eagles have a nests close by, daily deer sightings are not uncommon. Explore amazing volcanic rock formations and tidal pools with a myriad of sea creatures just down a set of steps to Daniel Point Marine Park at the end of our driveway.Pods of Orca Whales as well as large schools of feeding dolphins are spectacular sights from time to time. The star filled night skies will take your breath away!

Phenomenal place to go when you want to get away for a while

This was our first time using VRBO.com to find a place to go on what originally was intended as being a nice, long vacation that ended up turning into a honeymoon. Krista and Kent have built a beautiful cottage in a location that is simply stunning. Everything about this cottage was well thought out and designed. From the lighting and comfortable furnishings, to the delightful wood burning stove, to the fully appropriated kitchen, to the selection of books (especially on the local region), this truly is one of the coziest and most relaxing places that we've ever been to.

Krista and Kent were extremely responsive and very accommodating. We really appreciated it when we informed them that we would be arriving on a later ferry and they offered to pick up groceries and have them put in the refrigerator prior to our arrival. Then, since they knew we were celebrating our honeymoon, we walked into the cabin to find a very nice note written and sealed on handmade paper, along with a bottle of wine and a print of one of Krista’s pieces. These two are truly a generous couple and really make you feel as though you are a welcomed guest.

If you’re looking for a place to go to unwind, drink wine on a scenic deck, watch the wildlife and tugboats go by, or catch up on some pleasure reading, then Blue Orca Cottage is the place to stay. Despite visiting in late November, during what is expected to be the rainy season, we had some fantastic weather that allowed us to go out for some great hikes; we highly recommend Mount Daniel, Pender Hill, and heading up to Skookumchuck Narrows if you can time the tide right. Based on what we saw and what other reviewers said, we imagine that the biking and kayaking in the area would be rather idyllic; there seemed to be endless outdoor opportunities, especially in the summer.

All-in-all, you can’t go wrong staying at the Blue Orca Cottage. Thanks Krista & Kent, we had an amazing time!

Cheers,

Betsy & Marc

Beautiful vacation rental in an idyllic spot. Amazing views, peace and stunning sunsets. Many thoughtful details to make your stay cosy and welcoming - firewood, bath salts, books, well-stocked kitchen. Our stay was too short. We hiked, biked, kayaked and enjoyed the stunning fall scenery around Pender Harbour. Highly recommend it!

Our recent stay at Blue Orca was delightful. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed, from bubble bath to beach towels! We enjoyed morning coffees and delicious BBQ dinners on the beautiful deck, just watching the ocean activity. The owners Kent and Krista were welcoming and available for anything, but were also happy to leave us in peace to wind down from the hectic pace of our lives. It was a perfect home away from home!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much! This really is the perfect place to unwind and catch your breath. The beauty here is truly like medicine for the soul! Hope to see you again.

Is it possible to give more than 5 stars?!... I would do it!!

I don't know where to start... Krista and Kent are one of the kindest, heart-warming people we've ever meet!! The house and the location are stunning! If you need some time for your peace of mind, you HAVE to stay there! With all you need in the this excellent featured house, with so much in there what is not strict in a vacation home and with all you NEVER want to miss outside, this is the place! Hummingbirds,bald eagles,dee-dee the doe with her tiny babys,chipmunks,raves,many birds..ahhh...I can not list everything, you have to experience yourself! Krista is a wonderful artist, don't forget to watch all her brilliant pictures and piece of jewellerys in her studio.

At this place we were able to relax more than at any other place and we know many beautiful houses in Europe and Canada!

And even it's so quiet and peaceful, you have many choices for your acitivities around! Hiking, swimming, shopping, riding, mountain biking, good restaurants with excellent food. What else do you need for a perfect stay?!

If I will ever write my book, I will rent the house for less than a year or more and will use my advances from the Puplishing House for it... guess I probably would never be finished,,..;)

In my heart I adopt the house and of course Krista and Kent! :)
We will come back as soon as possible!

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you so much. It seems as though you have fallen in love with this place just as we did when we first came. I have always dreamed of someone writing a book or possibly music/songs here. The surroundings are truly inspirational! I am still in awe that such a lovely couple such as you are, could have found us on line and come all this way ( from Europe) to stay with us.
Please come again!

Dream cottage

Just wanted to say thank you again...your cottage is by far the most comfortable/cozy and inviting place with a spectacular view compared to any cottage we have rented in the past. You have thought of all the necessary items and more, like the knitted slippers. The antique decor added to the ambience befitting the west coast. The location is the icing on the cake so to speak, I so wish I was there today.
We will certainly make an effort to book your cottage again in the future.

Blue Orca Cottage is located at the very end of Orca Road at Daniel Point. Daniel Point is the long narrow Peninsula shown on the map. We are the last property on the culdesac.
