LUXURY OCEANFRONT RETREAT

Garden Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

Eagles Nest at Daniel Point is a large (5200 sq ft) and beautiful home built on a bluff overlooking the ocean. The home was the PNE prize home for 2000 and sits on 3/4 of an acre with its own private cove. It has a large number of windows which look out on the views, an 18 foot ceiling in the livingroom, and all the finishings in the house are first class. There are three decks all facing west to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. The main level has a large and well appointed kitchen. There are three ovens, 6 gas burners, two refridgerators and two in-island coolers for veg and fruits. The mediaroom has a highend system with surround sound for great movie watching. The library is well stocked with a wide variety of books for a good read. The master bedroom has a wonderful king bed and the other three bedrooms have equally great queen beds. The gamesroom (1200 sq. ft) has a pool table, foosball, air hockey and a ping pong table (and a beer fridge-sorry, you have to fill it). Outside the gamesroom is a large deck with a hot tub. This is a great place to relax at the end of the day and watch the sun go down.

Outside there is a childrens play area with a slide, swing, sand pit and toys. Below the house is a large patio for sun tanning. And below that is a private beach with its own deck. There are three kayaks located there for guests to take out on the ocean and enjoy. There are many places to paddle. One place we like is a group of islands a short distance offshore which are the home for many seals and sea lions.

The beach itself is not sandy. Proper footwear is needed to walk on the stones. The water, even in the summertime, is not very warm but I like to take a dip on hot days. For swimming I would recommded going to one of the nearby lakes. They are very warm and pleasant in the summer.

Why Murray Stephenson chose Garden Bay

We were particularly impressed by the natural beauty of the area and when we saw this wonderful home with such an incredible view, we decided to buy it. There isn't a day goes by that we don't pinch ourselves over how lucky we were to find this home.

What makes this house unique

The best thing about Eagles Nest is you can choose to be very active with a multiple of physical and mental activities or you can just sit on the deck sipping wine. You can watch the ocean with its many boats or the eagles as they soar overhead.

Whether our days have involved hiking, kayaking, swimming or just sunning ourselves, we always have a very peaceful, contented feeling. (Almost sounds like a John Denver song doesn't it).

Family gathering

  • 5 of 5
WOW! What a place and what a location. We were a group of 8 assorted close family over 3 generations and with 2 dogs. Eagles nest was just perfect for us. When 8 year old Sam walked into the house he said "Holy Macaroni" ! The house is stunning and Murray has equipped it so thoughtfully. We had fantastic weather and were able to swim in the cove and make use of the kayaks. The children loved Katherine Lake and were thrilled to see the Painted Turtles there as well as so many Eagles, Humming Birds, Deer, Chipmunks huge Starfish and Seals round the house. Sadly no Orcha - this time!
The huge games room was a great success and so cool when it was too hot to be active outside.
A really great family holiday with plenty of space to all enjoy quiet time as well as have fun together.
Very special memories were made and we are still talking about it.
Would love to return sometime or better still, win the lottery and make Murray an offer he can't refuse !!!

Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5
Just wanted to thank you for our wonderful stay at Eagles Nest! Our extended family holiday included people aged 16 to 85. Eagles Nest and the surrounding area provided so many memorable experiences for all of us. Your home is absolutely spectacular, inside and out! It is so well appointed and beautifully decorated - WOW! - but also has such a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere for a family holiday. We really enjoyed the use of your kayaks (and the workout from that incredible staircase down to the beach!) and of course the fabulous views from the sundecks! Watching deer casually strolling through your garden and enjoying the views of eagles and so many other different birds added to the experience. We also loved the "share" wine bar you've established - trying different wines and replacing them with our own favourites was such a great idea :) We all wished we could have stayed another week... you have created such a special place here.

Great Family Get Together!

  • 5 of 5
Dear Murray,

I wanted to take a quick moment to let you know what a great time we had at your home last week.  Your wonderful home ( along with some pretty amazing weather) made for the perfect family get together.

My sister and her family came out from Ontario to visit us and your place was the perfect venue.  The location was stunning -- the view from the deck at sunset is actually my desktop photo now.

The beach was great too -- the trip up the stairs became quite the topic of conversation and  a few of us did the challenge of the 2X without stopping.  The stairs actually became my workout every morning -- beats a tread mill any day!   We enjoyed the kayaks and paddled across to the next island and ended up seeing a seal....it made the paddling worth it.

We also were lucky enough to see 2 orcas in the water on Wednesday night which was a thrill for everyone and we had some amazing visits from the eagles.

Your information on hikes and surrounding lakes was great - we hiked Mt. Daniel and spent several afternoons cooling off at Katherine Lake.

The trip was really lovely and hopefully we will be lucky enough to have the chance to visit your home again.

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at Eagle's Nest for a week over christmas. What an amazing place! The view takes your breath away! The house was clean and very spacious (there were 3 couples and we all had our own bedroom/bathroom on separate floors). The games room was a hit and the hot tub was a perfect way to end the day. The kitchen is big enough for lots of people to cook together - which we did every night. Murray was great with the booking and very prompt in answering the few questions I had. He even had a christmas tree set up and stockings hanging at the fireplace. We didn't want to leave!! Thanks Murray!!!

My friends and I had an amazing time staying the weekend at Eagle's Nest. From the games room, the hot tub to the beautiful view. The kayaks provided by Murray allowed us to travel along the Coast line to see bald eagles and to see where Sakinaw lake drains into the ocean, Daniel Point is a beautiful area. We would recommend Eagle's Nest to all of our family and friends. Thank you Murray for sharing your little piece of heaven!
