Overview

Sechelt Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms and loft close to the beach in a private forest setting

Decorated in 'cottage style' with your comfort and enjoyment built into each room. On cool winter nights build a fire in the wood stove, wrap yourself in one of the many throw blankets and snuggle down to enjoy a book from the reading library.

In the idyllic forest setting enjoy the large outdoor deck with a hot tub and lounge chairs. Create a savory meal on the gas BBQ and enjoy under the trees in the outdoor eating area. Throughout the summer season the large deck area has sun and shade from 10:00 in the morning until 4:00 at night.

The master bedroom & guest rooms each come with comfortable queen size beds and the loft area provides additional sleeping space with 2 twin beds.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a small stove and apartment sized refrigerator, microwave, kettle, toaster, cutlery, dishes, pots and pans (everything you need to make your home cooked meals). Don’t feel like cooking? Just 10 minutes’ drive to the village of Sechelt you will have a wide variety and number of restaurants to choose from.

The bathroom is outfitted with a deep Japanese soaker tub and rain shower, and towels are proved for each guest.

For quiet evenings spent indoors the cottage comes with cable television, Netflix, wireless internet, DVD player and an IPod docking station with charger and speakers.

In the summer season we have everything you'll need to spend your days at the beach from large beach blankets & sun umbrella, to picnic dish-ware & glasses.

You'll never have to worry about losing the key with our secure key-less entry and your own personal code.

A quick getaway or a long relaxing vacation, we've planned to make your time at Annaway Cottage a special memory.

Why Deanna Udy chose Sechelt

In 2012 my husband Wayne and I bought the cottage after a lifetime of travelling to the area for summer vacations. There is something special about this place. A calmness that surrounds you here that makes life's worries seem far away.

What makes this cottage unique

The large deck feels like your sitting up in the trees and has sun on a portion of it all day. Just move the lounge chairs across the deck to enjoy the sun or escape the heat of the day throughout the summer season.

Each window has a view out on to the trees, the loft is just the place you always wanted to play in as a kid.

In the winters with the wood stove roaring, some great music playing in the background and an excellent read or maybe an excellent movie on Netflix there isn't any other better way to laze away a day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a lovely time staying at Annaway. From the well appointed rooms to all the great thoughtful little touches it was just great. We came here for a very special anniversary and everything was perfect. We'll definitely be back.

Secluded, peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Charming, well-appointed cottage in the woods north of Sechelt. Nice and secluded, with great access to local provincial parks and other hiking opportunities. Loved the hot tub and wood stove.

Cozy Cottage in the Forest

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is very private and tucked away in the trees up a steep hill from the road. The gravel/rock steps up to the cottage are quite easy to navigate with a nice line of garden lights to keep it well-lit. The owners use the cottage so it's well-outfitted with a nice selection of good quality dishes, pots, pans, and utensils - many rental places provide old junk from a thrift shop, but not here! Lots of notes on storage totes/baskets around the cottage so easy to find what you're looking for (lots of nice little perks provided - very well-outfitted). The couch and bed were very comfortable (on the soft side). Pillows are feather so if you like a fluffy/supportive one, bring from home (we only used one room so we took the pillows from the other room for more support). I would give a warning for those with limited mobility that the Japanese soaker tub/shower requires a high leg lift to get yourself up over the side to get into it - I'm 5'6" and 8 months pregnant, but still have good mobility/balance and managed it fine, but definitely something to be aware of if you have small kids or mobility issues. (It's a great tub for a warm soak.) Everything was spotless - not a spec of mildew in the bathroom and fresh paint/decor in every room. A little inconvenient to have to do some of the clean-up (such as take away all your garbage and wipe down the fridge), but we kept the kitchen clean and didn't produce much garbage over four days so it wasn't a big deal (you don't have to clean the bathrooms or do any laundry). The beach access is literally less than a 5 minute walk and the sandbar would be great for summer swimming, but there's no beach for long walks so we drove to Sechelt for that. One thing that was a bit on the light side was that just one box of wood provided for our four-night stay - the wood was dry and burned quickly and it took almost the whole box for one evening. At $10 per extra box of wood, we just lit one fire during our stay (we specifically choose cottages that have a wood stove and usually light a fire every day as it's a highlight of our winter get-aways). But really, the shortage of wood is our only complaint and we could have splurged and bought more wood as plenty was available in the woodshed so it's not a big deal. Overall a really charming, comfortable cottage and it was a great location for a cozy get-away. (We didn't use the hot tub due to my pregnancy.)

Owner's Response: Dear Tony Q. Thank you for taking the time to write up such a detailed review! And thanks to your fabulous feedback our future guests will find extra pillows in the closets so they can choose the one that feels the most comfortable for them. I will be sure to let all guests who are there for longer stays that they are welcome to more than one box of firewood so they can enjoy the fireplace without the worry of running out of wood so quickly. I am very sorry that I didn't get a chance to rectify this for you during your stay. The quick tidy our guests do before they leave really helps to keep our prices reasonable which makes the cottage accessible to young families on a budget but I will look into letting our guests choose if they would like the option of paying extra for the someone to do the extra clean. Our guests comfort and enjoyment is our priority and I hope you get a chance to come back one day so you can see we took your suggestions to heart. Thank you again for your honesty. Deanna

a great way to ring in the new year!

  • 5 of 5

my husband and i stayed for 3 nights over the new year. we were instantly impressed by how well stocked the cabin was...especially the kitchen (we love to cook). lots of little touches including magazines to read, books, movies and some games as well.

it is very cozy and the bed is very comfortable. we walked around the nice and quiet neighbourhood and noticed a boat rental place (pedals and paddles, i think) just down the road. already planning a return trip in the summer :)

thanks again deanna for all of your help!

Cozy comfort in a woodsy setting

  • 5 of 5

This spotless comfy cottage was a perfect spot for our romantic winter getaway. The decor is cozy and elegant, there is a decent supply of books, movies, magazines and wood for the wood stove; a well-stocked kitchen that was easy to use (love the hot chocolate left out for us – nice touch!) and a fantastic hot tub. It's a really short walk to the beach and tiny island vistas and a short drive to Sechelt. The only thing we would have loved is for the hot tub to be already warmed up to temperature by the time of our arrival as we wanted to slip in it as soon as we could! Much thanks to owner Deanna for her kind assistance. Loved it and would return!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your valuable feedback 'cottagegirl'. We've listened to your suggestion and made a change in our hot tub maintenance so that it is hot and ready to go when our future guests arrive.

quite cabin nestled in the forest

Thank you for the wonderful experience. Me and my wife had a wonderful time watching Netflix, socking in the hot tub and going to Hidden Grove Trail System.
