Peaceful getaway with the whole family!

  • 5 of 5
Having never been to the Sunshine Coast and deciding to make the trip at the last minute, we read over the reviews and choose the Nook and Sandy Hook. Really, what sealed the deal was the view and I promise you it does not disappoint!
Onto the review:
The owners were very quick to reply to email inquiries and were also kind enough to put out a pack and play for our baby to sleep in. We arrived in the middle of day and the house was easy to find- although the stairs do mean a bit of extra leg work to unpack the car on your first day, they really aren't bad:) We stayed in this house with our 4 kids and we all had a wonderful time. The house is clean and well equipped. It is in a quiet, peaceful neighbourhood and it was lovely to sit on the large deck in the evenings, hearing nothing but crickets and seeing way more stars than we ever normally see from our own home.
After being there for one day we saw seals, jellyfish and porpoises in the bay and a deer calmly munching on grass and totally ignoring us standing 15 feet away. My kids had a blast splashing about in the water while searching for crabs and fish. Parts of the beach are rather covered in pebbles, shells and barnacles so don't forget your water shoes!

There is a kayak and paddle board rental place just across the bay that is very reasonably priced. (If you are feeling adventurous, there are plane tours available at the bottom of Sechelt inlet at the marina as well). We did sign up for an hour long horse ride with Crystal Ranch and were very pleased with the experience! In addition to these fun outings, we visited several artist studios from Robert's Creek all the way up the Pender Harbour and bought some beautiful souvenirs to remember our vacation.

Everyday we would do a little drive to get the baby to sleep and then return to the house for beach time followed by a relaxing BBQ on the deck. Then the kids would get a nice bath in one of the two brand new, spotless bathrooms and off to bed. There is a tv and DVD player if needed but we didn't use it. It's not always easy to vacation with kids in tow, but this house and location were great for our family! We seriously wished we could have stayed a few extra days when our time was up. This house is perfect for anyone looking for a comfortable, relaxing stay where you can unplug and enjoy nature.

Fabulous cabin in a lovely area of the sunshine coast!

  • 5 of 5
We loved the Nook at Sandy Hook. The cabin was beautiful and we had everything that we needed there. The view was spectacular and the deck was well appointed to take it in. We watched many birds from the deck because this home is located half way up the cliff over a bay, therefore you see many types of birds in the forest canopy. Who knew?
The home was clean and generous with linens, washing machine, propane for the bbq, a well equipped kitchen and very easy home to relax in.
We loved our stay and would return in a heart beat. We swam most days and sat outside even when it rained a little there is an awning to sit under so you don't have to miss being outside at all.
We discovered a real gem a beautiful forest walk " Hidden Grove" maintained by volunteers and the trees were impressive. Very old forest and well marked to spend hours walking.
Our daughters and their pets arrived for some of the time and we were all very comfortable.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time and enjoyed a pod of sea lions in the bay about 20 feet off shore, we had BBQ surf and turf and a barrel of wine. It wa quiet and the view was excellent. There is only one thing though I would recommend that you prepare for a climb in either direction as the stairs are a bit more then all the stairs in your home put together. On the flip side when you use the sea level set you know your either going to the sweet smelling sea and all it's glory. Or, are you ascending to the luxurious 3 deck layer patio or a walk up to your vehicle clawing your ascent to civilization or descending into a fire lit living room and kitchen that you can observe that sea the sea lions swam and ate when you did. Yes there is a BBQ. Loved it

This place is just fantastic. Came here with a group of friends for work and fun in the city and stayed in this cabin for more than a month. Everything you need they have it. Just grab your gear and step into paradise. Nice open deck for all the great BBQ nights we all enjoy. Very safe and quiet neighbouhood. Few steps to easy access to the water...Cheers
