Overview

Halfmoon Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Architecturally designed 1220 sq ft Guesthouse-1 BR plus other, sleeps 2-6

DO YOU WANT PRIVACY?

Set in Five acres of mature west coast forest including access to 260 feet of low bank waterfront commanding a sunny south facing point with a private beach. Seals and otters frolic among the islets and eagles perch in the cedars and ancient firs.

DO YOU WANT VIEWS?

Perched on the edge of a moss and lichen covered bluff in the open arbutus and fir canopy, this 1220 sq ft glazed aerie offers intimate views of the surrounding forest as well as the rugged coast.(sleeps 2-5)

Short paths, benches and seating areas along the shoreline offer different perspectives from which to view the landscape and its native west coast flora and fauna.

THE AERIE

A graceful butterfly roofline and sweeping expanses of glass blur the boundaries between interior and exterior spaces in this new modern treehouse which reflects a contemporary twist on traditional typologies, especially corrugated metal boat sheds and cedar clad cottages.

A 10 ft. granite island anchors a modern kitchen and serves as a gathering spot in the open living area.

The master bedroom and ensuite enjoy private forest views. A queen sized bed and rainshower refresh.

Cleverly designed niches offer sitting and sleeping areas for extra guests.

An additional bathroom with a comfortable deep tub adds convenience for families.

Large deck wraps around the south corner for beautiful ocean views and al fresco dining. Private patio to the rear includes a hot tub and private lounging area.

THE PROPERTY

THE POINTHOUSE B&B

Two amazing staterooms evoke a luxury small cruise ship feel with spa style bathrooms as well as tub/sitting rooms which enjoy the ocean views. Gas fireplaces, king sized beds, luxury linens, private decks, fridge and coffee makers, 42' smart TVs, robes and spa toiletries complete the appointments in each room.

Beautiful custom walnut cabinetry throughout reinforces the nautical feel with lots of ship shape storeage especially in the kitchen which makes the property suitable for catering small weddings or other special events.

Generous dining and lounging space on both levels offer lots of choices for gathering or seclusion. The lower living room and lounge forms the prow of the ship and opens to a large oceanfront deck and associated patios great for outdoor lounging and dining.

About Heather

We bought the property in Dec 2005 as our future retirement home while we were still residing and working in Dawson Creek, BC. It was a successful vacation rental till Feb 2010 when we began a complete reconstruction of the main house and built a new guesthouse on the bluff above.

We made the move to the Sunshine Coast full time in January 2011 living first in the Aerie guesthouse and finally the expanded and renovated Pointhouse Jun 2012.

With the opening of a new B&B and a busy schedule of physician locums, retirement is still a ways off. Fortunately, life on the coast is a more relaxed pace.

Heather purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Heather chose Halfmoon Bay

The Sunshine Coast is easily accessible from Vancouver-car,ferry, boat, floatplane, commercial/ corporate aircraft.

The location is spectacular - You have to visit to appreciate. Most beautiful landscapes on the Sunshine Coast.

Sargeant Bay Provincial Park is a little known jewel. A secluded log strewn halfmoon shingle beach with sand at low tide backed by a magnificent bird sanctuary and lovely hiking and mountain bike paths.

Gibsons, Sechelt, Pender Harbor and points in between offer innumerable opportunities for sightseeing, cultural and sporting activities and this property is located centrally to it all.

What makes this cottage unique

This estate offers one of the most luxurious, private and peaceful locations on all the Coast.

THE PROPERTY IS ACTUALLY SITUATED ON THE MORE PRIVATE AND SUNNY EAST SIDE OF SARGEANT BAY DIRECTLY ACROSS FROM WHERE IT IS SHOWN ON THE GOOGLE MAP ABOVE. UNFORTUNATELY, AS YET, WE HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO GET GOOGLE MAPS TO CHANGE THIS.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is just amazing! My husband and I have agreed we are going to bring the house home with us , and replace it with ours! We love it! We had the most relaxing time staying here and will be back!

Thanks so much for designing such a beautiful space.

5 star quality in every way!

  • 5 of 5
West Coast modern luxury..... a beautiful, open floor plan, high ceilings, architecturally thought out to fit the land incredibly. The floor to ceiling windows made it feel like I was falling asleep and waking up in the outdoors. Heather and Bob were such gracious hosts and the grounds are so nice to walk and spend time in. Our dog loved it too..... his daily walks by the ocean foraging for sticks and starfish!! You will not be disappointed. So many unique and special things about this place to mention........

Exceptional Home Set In Nature

  • 5 of 5
My son and I visited for 4 nights to explore the Sunshine Coast and this was the perfect place for us. We thoroughly enjoyed being able to use the bbq, hot tub, and to kayak and hike right from the property. The floor to ceiling windows and all the high end appointments inside were the ultimate luxury, yet we still experienced nature at its best all around us. The photos and description of the property are very accurate. We took day trips to lots of hiking trails nearby, and also a 5 hour boat trip to see spectacular scenery / waterfalls that were only accessible by water. We appreciate Heather and Bob's clear and prompt communication, recommendations, and hospitality. The care they take for their home is evident and it was wonderful that we had the opportunity to be guests for a few nights. I hope to return in the future with other family members.

An Aerie complete with the Eagles

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at The Aerie for an extended visit of 5 weeks! It is an incredibly magical place and it is like being in a tree-house enveloped in the middle of the beautiful green lush rain-forest.
The house is incredibly quiet and private and is equipped with every imaginable piece of equipment. They even have picnic blankets, umbrellas, wet-weather gear and a real chef's kitchen!
Heather & Bob treat their operation seriously from the minute you start your booking through until they say their final goodbyes to you. Everything you ask for is looked after very promptly and also with a high level of privacy attached to their visits. We loved sitting in the hot-tub at night under the trees and looking out at the sunset and the many stars in the night-sky. We hope to be bale to visit again & again through the years and would HIGHLY recommend The Aeire as a place of seclusion and yet one that is also very near Sechelt so that you can get in all of the supplies that you need. Thank You Heather & Bob for creating such a SPECIAL place!!

A Wonderful Modern Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Heather, the home owner was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. We'd like to thank you for sharing your beautifully designed and decorated home with us. Your home combines modern elegance with a peaceful sanctuary amidst the natural beauty of the Sunshine Coast. We could not have asked for a more perfect setting for a relaxing vacation! It was clear that you had given much thought and care to every detail of our comfort. The house was immaculate, comfortable and the indoor/outdoor living space was a treat. We are already talking about a return trip!

Fabulous Family Get Away!

  • 5 of 5
Our family needed some R&R and we found the peace and serenity we were looking for in this quiet, secluded paradise with all the modern amenities. Our teenage girls loved exploring the very rocky shoreline and local trails. We enjoyed reading and napping on the sun filled deck with our dog. It wouldn't be a family vacation without him. Sechelt was a short drive to play tennis and shop and walk. Local restaurants and cafes were amazing. Kitchen was well equipped to cook including a bbq on the sun-filled deck. This home is beautiful but the property is in the hills and its a steep hike to the rocky shoreline. The pictures simply don't do this property justice. We would definitely recommend this fabulous retreat if you are looking for privacy and quiet. The weather was fantastic the entire week. We had a couple of little issues that came up but Heather and Bob were very quick to respond and resolve them. The roadway in is a tight squeeze and rough ride, especially in a large SUV. Be VERY careful making the left off of Redroofs Road. Also parking requires a patient and skilled driver but it is well worth it. Thanks for a fantastic week, we will definitely return!

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
An opportunity to escape two cities with two couples allowed us all the chance to unwind and truly getaway. This place has everything you need from bbq to outdoor private hottub to rain shower overlooking the endless high trees and cliffside views. We lucked out with incredible weather and enjoyed lazing on patio chairs and hiking along the beach. Lots to do but unfortunately too little time...not a problem, we will return!
