Secret Cove Bird's Nest is perched above one of the most spectacular inlets on the Sunshine Coast; awaits your home away from home!
Absolute bliss is what you will feel when exploring this private peninsula, shared by only a small number of homes. If you are a nature enthusiast who loves exploring ocean inlets, bird watching, and hiking enchanting trails through the woods, then this delightful home in Secret Cove will be perfect for you!
Excellent kayaking and boating area. Bird's nest is an ideal setting for a romantic retreat or we can accomodate up to six guests. Our house is newly renovated with all the comforts of home. Open design living area with large windows to enjoy the view!
If you happen to arrive by water, we have a 30 foot slip for landing your pleasure craft. We also have launching facilities if you would like to trailer your boat here. The fishing here is one of the best areas of the Sunshine Coast for salmon and ling cod. There are also many islands here to explore.
It is a rare opportunity to be a guest in one of the most cherished parts of the world...Your Private little spot is waiting for you!
Trev and Laurie both love this private gem on the Sunshine Coast and would love to share it with you! Laurie was born and raised on the Sunshine Coast and really enjoys the beauty, nature and sense of community on the Sunshine Coast.
Trevors family has owned property in Secret Cove since the 1970's and really enjoys the outdoors and fishing in the area.
Laurie Beeman purchased this house in 2012
This is such a unique piece of property. You are close to the ocean and an expansive sky. Part of this property has been owned by Trevor's family since the 70's and it is so beautiful and peaceful here. When we had the opportunity to buy the rest of the property, we felt lucky to have the opportunity.
We fell in love with the expansive sky, the ocean, the wildlife, and sense of peace here. It is truly unique with no traffic noise, only boats, and sealife. When we saw a stellar sea lion playing with a salmon in the ocean in front of the house, we were captivated!
My boyfriend and I stayed here this past weekend and the accommodations were first class. There is nothing you need to bring, it has everything there waiting for you to come and just relax. A roaring fire was going in the fireplace when we arrived and the hot tub was ready to jump into and unwind. Laurie and Trevor were great hosts. Cannot wait to go again.
We have been coming to the Sunshine Coast yearly for the last five years to celebrate our anniversary. These are the best accommodations we have ever had the pleasure of staying. The lovely hosts, Laurie and Trevor, are welcoming and easy going and make sure you have wverything you need. The house is situated in a quiet, magical setting where you can choose to relax and stay in and cosy up to the fireplace or be adventurous and take a walk through one of the beautiful forest trails. Everything you could possibly need is provided and the clean, well appointed home has 3 bedrooms so can comfortably accommodate about 6 people. We brought our boat and were able to use the boat launch and dock for the duration of our stay, an added bonus! I spent many hours sitting on the huge deck watching and photographing birds, there are so many different species! The hot tub is wonderful to relax in at the end of the day and is in a beautiful setting. We will be coming back next year for sure!
Secret Cove Bird's Nest was perfect for our stay over Thanksgiving weekend. The location is perfect for hiking and walks to the north and south. (We did Smuggler Cove and Skookumchuk Trail.) The home was well appointed and very relaxing, especially with a fire roaring inside while it was raining outside - the perfect setting to cook a fabulous holiday dinner. We'd love to come another time in warmer weather to kayak and explore the waterways. Someday...
Secret Cove Bird's Nest is the place to stay!
I don't know where to begin.
The location is fantastic, the views are stunning, it's so very private and the home is super clean and well-equipped. Everything we needed was in this amazing get-away home.
We also enjoyed meeting our hosts, Laurie and Trevor, they are caring and attentive hosts.
We will definitely be back!
Wow...I have no idea where to start! We were fortunate enough to be able to spend a whole week at this incredibly beautiful and peaceful house.
This home was everything advertised and then some; its decor was beautiful and well designed with peace and tranquility in mind. Anything we could have possibly needed was thought of and then some, from laundry soap and stain remover to spare sweaters, rain jackets and a headlamp in the hall closet. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could ever need to make a gourmet meal; if you want to cook outside, there is a state of the art Cuisinart barbeque at your disposal.
There are a few different levels to the outside yard with whimsical plantings and tiny little details around every corner. The grass overlooking the ocean is perfect for yoga or meditation and on the other side of the house you can soak up the sun on the chaise lounges.
We practically lived on the wraparound deck which we shared with nuthatches, jays, finches, hummingbirds and chickadees while we watched kingfishers and herons in the distance. Our hosts even supplied a basket of “chickadee food”. We were visited by a doe and her twins one evening and several squirrels daily. To our delight we picked about 5 lbs. of blackberries as well.
A huge thank you to Trevor and Laurie who were the perfect hosts - attentive yet non-invasive :D
We highly recommend the Birds Nest to anyone who wants a one-of-a-kind holiday and I personally can’t wait to go back!
We were looking for a quiet, relaxing, very homey atmosphere and we got more than what we expected. It was peaceful and very serene. The only sound you hear are from birds chirping, which are pleasant to hear. I've been amazed to see how many hummingbirds, blue jays, chickadees to name a few. I also saw a couple of eagles greeting us on our first day- wilderness right on your balcony. Our stay was short, yet we felt complete and ready to face the fast life in Vancouver. My family goes to Sunshine Coast every year and always have a great experience. This time, we did not wait another year to have another great memories... my husband and I, together with a couple of friends, came back just after 9 days and again stayed at the Bird's Nest. It was like living in your own vacation home... very homey indeed!
Thank you, Laurie and Trevor for having us :)

Bird's Nest is located in one of the most beautiful, private areas on the Sunshine Coast. The home faces southwest with fabulous views of beautiful sunsets and open sky. It is a perfect getaway for boaters, kayakers, or just a break from life, to rejuvenate your soul!
There is a dock in front of the house on the water for you to use! If you have a kayak or canoe, you're welcome to bring it; there are many beautiful areas to explore here. There are also places to rent kayaks close by if you don't have your own.
Thormandby Island has gorgeous white sand beaches and is only 10 minutes away by boat! You feel like your on a tropical island! Great place for a picnic, swimming, frisbee, bocce ball, or just relaxing in the sun!
Simson Marine park is located on South Thormandby Island, and Jedediah Island is a half hour away which is a provincial park with an old Homestead to explore, complete with orchard, and sheep still inhabiting the island; a lovely day trip!
Smugglers Cove is a ten minute drive away which has a resident beaver; volunteers have built wooden walkways above the flooded areas. After a lovely walk in the forest and through open marshland areas; you end up overlooking gorgeous bays and expansive ocean.
Homesite Cave trails are close by which meanders around limestone caves and sinkholes, while also being situated amongst a second old growth forest and waterfall!
This is an amazing area for Mountain biking as volunteers have built many trails all over the coast for you to enjoy. Easy access to the new Suncoaster trail!
These are only a few gems of the area, there are so many areas to explore! We can provide more information as requested. Look forward to your arrival!
