The Sunshine Coast is a 40 minute ferry ride from Vancouver. Experience coastal living in this tastefully renovated waterfront cottage just steps from your own private beach. Breathtaking views of the Popham Islands in the foreground and Vancouver in the background. Feel at home with complete privacy and simple comfort in this historic living space.
A convenient vacation destination, discover your Sunshine Coast personality with magnificent access to year round activities, nearby restaurants and shops. Wake to the sounds of seals slapping in the water, birds singing and eagles calling. The sun room provides a restful dining space overlooking one of the oldest Arbutus trees on the coast.
Relax with a book on the day bed or walk 200 steps down the meandering forest trail to the beach for suntanning, swimming or beach combing. At the end of the day have a soak in the tub, unwind in front of the cosy fireplace and enjoy dinner on the patio where the afternoon sun filters through 150 year old Coniferous trees and mature gardens.
When you are ready to retreat to the bedroom you will be instantly relaxed by the calming sound of waves crashing on the beach.
We met in Deep Cove, North Vancouver in 1991 and fell in love with each other, surrounded by the mountains, ocean and temperate rain forests of British Columbia. After travelling, school, and all the big milestones that one passes in their thirties, we settled on the Sunshine Coast in 2008. As vacationers, we rent using VRBO and enjoy having a home away from home.

Steve and I always dreamt of owning waterfront. This location is close to everything, but private enough to enjoy a quiet lifestyle.The property has a lot of history for the area and the timing was perfect for us.
Built in 1936 by Mr. Kelly himself, this cottage has many unique features. Cpt. William E. Kelly from the Isle of Mann. had civil and mechanical engineering degrees. Kelly Road was named after him. He was Weyerhauser's Superintendent in Washington in 1932.
Walking down the garden path to the front door you will immediately notice a mature and meandering garden landscape. Inside the beach chic designed cottage the original Douglas fir flooring and panelling was restored. A Manx inscription on the arts and craft mantle describes his perspective about life on the Sunshine Coast. You have your own private forested trail, 200 steps to the beach below. Breakfast in the sunroom over looking one of the oldest Arbutus trees in the area provides a living space set in nature.
South facing from Gower Point to the Popham, Pasley and Worlcombe Islands.
