The newly renovated house and creative gardens is a perfect place for an intimate, blissful and FUN get-a-way. On private waterfront terraced acreage, thousands of miles of ocean views, nestled between two bay's, mesmerizing wildlife including whales and eagles is the best kept secret of the Sunshine Coast in beautiful BC Canada. Just two and half hours from Vancouver, facing South overlooking the Pacific Ocean and a magnificent view of the Vancouver Island. Breathtaking sunsets will entice you on the ever-changing driftwood and pebbled shoreline.
The house is extremely private including private gates as you enter the property. No one else is on the property during your stay! Spacious cedar decking on three sides over looks acreages of natural life and breathtaking ocean views. Beach access is within a 3 minute drive from the house.
Lots to do: Paddle boarding, cycling trail riding and on road especially on Redrooffs, scuba diving, unbelievable fishing trips, ocean kayaking, sailing are some of my favourite things to do. Take a stroll out onto the Government wharf in Halfmoon Bay or hike into Smuggler's Cove. Explore Desolation Sound or take the Malibu Princess up to Princess Louisa Inlet to the world renown Chatterbox Falls.
Skookumchuk Narrows is another amazing sight to see. Or Just Relax on your deck, enjoy the view. Whatever you choose to do, take a little piece of paradise home with you from Halfmoon Bay.

We LOVE Private Oasis in Halfmoon Bay. It is so private and truly an Oasis in every possible meaning.
Beth Crescent purchased this house in 2006
It is absolutely beautiful in every way.
I am a wellness director and work with large corporations and yoga teacher. I could feel the negative thoughts, the stress just pour away from me. This place is so healing. AND everything is here, all the comforts if you want them, including full on internet and SAT TV! Preparing food here was also a treat, I usually never like to cook for some reason this place turned me into a master chef. I recommend this magically place to anyone.
We very much enjoyed the serenity of this beautifully situated high-bank property. The investment of the owner in the creation of a peaceful oasis is evident in her attention to detail both inside the home and on the grounds of the property. The interior furnishings were beautiful and comfortable. Inside and out, it was clean and beautifully maintained.
The wrap-around deck offers multiple options to rest and relax with a book, a drink, and the stunning views of the water. Had the weather been inclement, we would have been very satisfied just to stay put in the warmth and comfort of the home, but the property also serves as an excellent base to access nature hikes and scenic drives in the surrounding area. Beth provides an extensive list of suggestions, and was prompt answering any questions that arose. Our thanks to her for an experience that was both tranquil and rejuvenating. We would recommend this property highly!
The name, Private Oasis, says it all. We were surprised at first at the closeness of the neighbouring properties, but the towering cedars either side of the property ensure privacy and seclusion.
The house is spacious, beautifully decorated with an eclectic selection of art and artifacts, comfortably and plentifully furnished inside and out, and with gorgeous recently renovated kitchen and bathroom (with a heated towel rack!). The whole place, inside and out, was immaculate. The dining/living area looks out over the enormous cedar deck to unobstructed ocean and mountain views. The deck and surrounding garden contain several delightful seating areas allowing us to enjoy different aspects at different times of the day.
We loved the serenity of the place so much that we found it difficult to leave to go exploring the area, which once we made the effort is well worth while. The highlight was definitely visiting Skookumchuk Narrows (about an hour’s drive, with a one hour hike each way) at high tide, an awesome display of the sheer power of the ocean, enhanced by the sight of expert kayakers riding the rapids
The owner is absolutely delightful to deal with, very warm and welcoming.
Since this is an objective review, I feel bound to make one constructive criticism. All I can come up with is that we couldn’t find the hair drier! Of course we could have phoned Beth, but it seemed a very small thing in the scheme of things.
The cottage was situated overlooking the bay, with a large back deck and a number of other deck chairs located off the deck in niches providing alternate views of the bay and gardens. The cottage was clean, well serviced, providing a positive and relaxing atmosphere. Local access to the waterfront provided great semi-private locations for a swim or a walk along the beach searching for seaside treasures.
We enjoyed out 10 days in this delightful and friendly community well within striking distance of Gibsons Landing and Powell RIver.
While there are properties on either side of the cottage, only one is immediately visible, and is readily forgotten.
We loved our time, the Beach House is beautiful. We celebrated our anniversary and had the best time! The property is peaceful and fun with the huge deck and hammocks. The inside of the house is so clean and furnished beautifully. Sleeping in a quality bed also was heavenly. Loved it!
Beth is so helpful and kind. The Beach House is beautiful, so clean, so well-designed and with quality furnishings. The property is perfectly located. I went kayaking and hiking. The beaches in the area are beautiful. I went swimming and was lucky to swim as the whales were in the very same area. The lake close by is also a great place to swim! I also enjoyed many great meals on the deck with hammocks hanging from incredible trees. I highly recommend this place.
This place went beyond our expectations. The value is incredible. The location is so beautiful. This place is really magically, We enjoyed our stay very much. Our relationship deepen and we left feeling so much joy. Really really good times!
EXTREMELY PRIVATE — My best kept secret for a private swim or picnic on the beach. Walk on trail, walk passed 3 houses on right, stay on the trail, notice artist house on right, amazing cravings everywhere in trees, etc. Keep walking to ocean. Brand new cedar stairs all the way to ocean. Wear runners! 3-4 minute walk to beach, go right and walk for 3 more minutes until you see beautiful round rocks to lay on and be sure to bring a bottle of your favourite wine, a towel, snacks and have a truly magical day!
