Sechelt Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Private 1br Waterfront Suite W/ Kitchen, King Bed, Hot Tub - Sleeps 4
Imagine sitting down with a glass of wine watching the sunset paint a rainbow of colours across your own private waterfront getaway. The sun dips behind the nearby hills as you hear the call of a Loon from across the water. Coracle Cove is located on a small body of water which we share with a handful of seasonal cottages, tucked into the woods along the eastern shoreline. The cottages are seldom occupied, giving us a heightened sense of privacy and relaxation.
Our waterside hot tub, described by Trip Advisor as 'The best view in BC,' sits on an oceanside deck which literally hangs beside the ocean, as waves crash onto the rocks below. Does this sound like what you're looking for, a place where you can completely relax for a few days or more, and that's only 90 minutes from Vancouver.
Facing south, we enjoy the full range of the movement of the sun from its deep purple sunrises to those rainbow-filled sunsets. The reflections on the still ocean waters create a beauty that is simply unparalleled. Relax and take in this very special view on our large oceanside deck. If you want to be even closer to the water, move down to the floating dock and take a seat in one of our big comfortable chairs. Feel the light ocean breeze on your face and listen to the gentle lapping of the water - it's often the only sound you'll hear.
Coracle Cove operated as a bed and breakfast for over a decade, receiving over 75 'excellent' reviews, as well as their annual Certificate of Excellence awards. We have just been awarded 'Gold Top Vacation Rental' award. We made the recent transition to a vacation rental in order to offer our guests greater independence and affordability, but we still offer the same high level of personalized service that our guests are often seeking.
With its own exterior entrance, our single suite is completely private and provides lots of room in a well designed 700 sq.Ft. space. A fully-equipped kitchen and bright living room boast large windows looking out to the ocean. A walk-out covered deck is just a stone's throw from the water, and a comfortable place to sit, enjoy the view and watch a variety of birds at the nearby feeder.
There is a large, bright bedroom with a king-sized bed and comfortable obus form mattress. A new sofa-bed in the living room bed provides additional sleeping space.
Located on Sechelt Inlet on a pristine half-acre setting, you're only 10 minutes from the town of Sechelt, yet far enough away to feel like you've escaped to a very special place. Over 40 different bird species appear throughout the year. Seals can often be seen just off the dock, and porpoises and dolphins are frequent visitors. Check out the photo gallery on our website for some of the critters you'll see and bring your camera when you visit.
Coracle Cove Waterfront Suite is perfect for week-long vacations, short getaways, writers retreats or house hunting visits. It is an ideal vacation rental choice, and offers excellent value.

About Jack Pope
We discovered the Sunshine Coast in 1974 when Jack needed a place to do his student teaching. Our roots in this beautiful community grew deeper and deeper and we consider ourselves extremely lucky to have found Paradise so early in our lives.
Jack enjoyed teaching a variety of subjects at both the high school and elementary levels. His love was history, first nurtured from travelling through Europe. He retired from the classroom in 2006, but quickly replaced this with other interests. He is currently serving as the Past President of the Sunshine Coast B&B Association, and was a Founding Director of Sunshine Coast Tourism, and also served on the Board of Directors for Vancouver Coast & Mountains Tourism Region.
Sheila recently retired from a very successful career in real estate. She has replaced her busy work schedule with volunteer work as a member of the Sunshine Coast Search & Rescue Team and Program Director for the Sechelt Rotary Club.
Retirement has given us both the gift of time... time to spend with our two grandchildren who live nearby, time to persue hobbies and time for travel. Life is Good!!
Jack Pope purchased this apartment in 1999
Why Jack Pope chose Sechelt
Sheila found this incredible piece of property and we always like to boast that we had the best Realtor in the world. We're on a small body of water that we share with a handful of seasonal cottages, most of which are seldom used, so we have a real heightened sense of privacy and relaxation. It's south facing so we get sunshine all day and experience beautiful sunrises and sunsets throughout the year.
What makes this apartment unique
When you're on the water you have an expansive, uninterrupted view. We see boats of all shapes and sizes, float planes and a wide range of wild life, both below and above the water and in the air. There's always something that catches your eye, that catches your breath and you just have to stop and look... and grab your camera.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We were so impressed with Coracle Cove. Sometimes you wonder if a place will be as nice as the pictures look, but Coracle Cove was even better. The view from the hot tub was outstanding whether it was during the sunset, or in the evening with the Milky Way above. There is a barbeque and outdoor eating area which are both covered, so that they can still be enjoyed in the rain. The area is so peaceful, and if you come in September you can see the seals, spawning salmon, and the birds which are always around thanks to all Jack's bird feeders.
