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.
