Halfmoon Bay House Rental Photos and Description

Our home is situated on beautiful, low bank rock oceanfront looking out at breathtaking views of Halmoon Bay, Merry and south Thormamby Islands. Enjoy the many sea birds, bald eagles, seals and cruise ships passing behind the islands. The ocean is located just 37 steps down from the main house.
Enjoy swimming off the walk in dock, retreating to the spacious waterside deck, the hot tub and the 2 wonderfully landscaped decks off the main house. Watch for falling stars while sitting comfortably in front of the propane fire pit on the front deck.
There are 2 spacious bedrooms in the main house plus a guest cottage with its own private bathroom attached to the main deck just steps away. Make your own coffee in the guest house in the morning and enter the main house at your leisure! The 3 bedrooms are beautifully appointed making this a perfect getaway for 3 couples. We also have an adorable bunk house right by the ocean which will sleep 2 more people. This bunk house is perfect for teenagers or school aged children.

Enjoy the comfortable seating in the living room while gazing at the view, cuddling by the fire or watching satellite TV.

The house is a block away from a network of well maintained, dog friendly hiking trails. Or Smuggler's Cove Provincial Park is just a 5 minute drive away which offers good family hiking and beautiful views.
Halfmoon Bay Historic General Store is located a 5 minute drive away and will provide you with any missing necessities or a bottle of wine for dinner.

About Jane F
We live in Vancouver and have owned this vacation property since our children were young. Our children are now grown but have wonderful memories of having this as a home away from home.
Jane F purchased this house in 1998
Why Jane F chose Halfmoon Bay
We were looking for rocky waterfront that had easy access for swimming and boating. We loved the abundant Arbutus trees found in this stretch of coast and the easy proximity to hiking. The drive from the ferry terminal was beautiful and relaxing so did not make for a stressful commute. We felt that this property would be perfect for our children who were 5 and 8 at the time but also offer my husband and I a lovely retreat in our retirement.
What makes this house unique
The home is a 1200 square foot Lindal cedar home which we have lovingly and tastefully updated over the years. The walls have been lightly whitewashed but still reveal the warm wooden grain. The kitchen was updated a few years ago with modern appliances and granite countertops. The bathrooms were totally renovated in 2013 and a mud/laundry room was added to provide extra pantry and storage. We have maintained the charm of the original cottage but have turned it in to our 'dream cottage'. The addition of the guest cottage allowed us a separation from our guests although they are just a few steps from the kitchen sliding doors.
