So what makes the WestCoast BlueOtter Experience different?

Privacy. Beauty. Tranquility.

We pride ourselves in helping our guests escape the distractions of daily life and achieve the most relaxing west-coast experience possible by providing the right atmosphere, amenities and comforts. As with Zen, less is more, so we have eliminated distractions. That's right, NO Cable TV (opting to provide a great selection of DVD movies and music instead). NO WiFi; and optionally, we will even lock your cell phones away for safekeeping for the duration of your stay. And to further assure your peace and privacy, we only allow Only One Guest Booking at a time on the property. BlueOtter, is ideal for a couple's retreat, a special family vacation, or to simply get away from it all so you can connect with nature, yourself, and each other.

Todd : Former Ad Agency Executive/CEO, Tokyo Japan. Currently I'm a Researcher/PhD Student at International School of Management (France, New York, Tokyo, Shanghai); a B&B Owner (Halfmoon Bay Sunshine Coast, BC) and full-time Faculty/Instructor of marketing and international business at Capilano University in Vancouver Canada. Probably obvious, but I love Japan and its culture of food, hospitality & customer service; enjoy traveling the world, experiencing new cultures through people, food and advertising - and having fun living on the west-coast and sharing it with others - along with my wife Kaoru (Japanese Canadian Immigration Consultant) and our son Joe.

Todd Newfield purchased this house in 2004

The views are breath-taking and the sunsets sublime... The Property: Watch eagles, otters, seals (and sometimes even whales) play right out your front door. Our peaceful gated 1.8 acre property, with ponds, gardens, lawns and wrap-around ocean front views, is only 2 hours away from Downtown Vancouver’s busy core - and the ideal place to soak up the fresh west-coast air while exploring the Sunshine Coast. When venturing out, you will see the very best the coast has to offer - dining, arts and adventure is only a short drive away. Dine in waterfront restaurants, cafes or pubs for a variety of flavours and budgets; browse artisan markets, attend music/craft/& art festivals, or go golfing, biking, hiking or kayaking all within a 5 to 20 minute drive from our cottage. And of course, it’s just a short walk to the local ZEN temple - where you might bump into one of our famous neighbours along the way.

Our Promise: We truly love this place and know you will too. We are happy to assist in providing information to help you plan your trip including rental contacts, picnic areas, special spots to visit, and even suggestions of in-house catering options for you to enjoy. Our promise is to truly help make your get-away special, hassle-free and incredibly relaxing. So don't hesitate to contact us to discuss options and bookings for a great west-coast getaway.

We had an excellent weekend in the west coast suite. The views were incredible and our hosts well exceeded our expectations. The location is incredible and truly a marvel of west coast beauty. Within minutes we felt calmer and more relaxed. Thank you Todd for going the extra mile. You made us feel very welcome in your home. We would love to come back.

This was the perfect place

We rented the entire home so we could get away from the city and this was the perfect place. Plenty of space, a home suited to relaxation, and an atmosphere which just inspires a feeling of comfort. Swimming in the ocean was a perfect start and end to a day which usually finished up watching a movie while admiring the huge stars which basked the house in a mid-summer's glow. The drive up to ruby lake and garden bay was great too. Already planning to come next year for the same weekend!

We chose Todd & Kaoru's cabin for a family reuinion and birthday celebration. The house is beautiful and waking up to the sound of the water on the rocks and the view is something we'll remember forever. It is quite possibly a slice of heaven on earth.

Thanks for a great stay!

Amazing house with a breathtaking view

We had such a great time at Todd's house. Amazing house with a breathtaking view. Quiet and peaceful place for a romantic getaway. Perfect with friends as well enjoying the Jacuzzi on the deck, grilling marshmallows on the firepit by the water. Fresh salmon on the barbecue, cards by the cheminee...and so many hikes to enjoy !
A real paradise ...
Take a look on the water at sunset : beautiful colours play with the clouds in this always changing sky, Otters, seals, geese will show up if you take time to observe the wildlife. The king of the sky, the bald eagle says hello sometimes !
I recommend this place to everybody who want to live the best week-end ever !
