Both cottages have large sundecks with southern exposure, gorgeous ocean views and spectacular sunsets as the cruise ships sail by. We are conveniently located less than a mile walk along the beach to the village of Sechelt. Email us for additional photos, and references from previous guests are always available.

Thinking about a bit of heaven months later.....

  • 5 of 5
I still come back once in a while to peruse Darlene and Chuck's VRBO ad simply to look at the photos and reflect on the wonderful time spent in their cottage on the water over the holiday period last year. They are very, very special people who make you feel like instant friends from the first time you contact them.
Once settling in to the cottage, you will be overwhelmed by so much, from the comfortable furnishings, a kitchen equipped possibly like no other you have rented, the décor in each and every room, the particularly oh so comfy beds, sheets and pillows, the many whitest, softest face cloths and towels, the care taken in the simplest of areas such as cologne, lipstick, shampoo, conditioner. Nothing is overlooked for their guests and pets and the cottage is simply immaculate. The only problem you may encounter is deciding whether to roam the beach, go to town or just spend the day on the deck or indoors relaxing in the most lovely environment ever.

Two indoor sitting areas. Plenty of room and table for 4 on the waterfront deck. Full, well stocked kitchen .
one bathroom w/shower bathub combo. Location on Davis Bay looking out towards Vancouver Island. Daily heron visits, one deer, eagles, geeses. Cottage "Life's a Beach 1" was very clean. Beds firm, comfortable pillows. It was in the low 20s when we stayed, could be hot in warmer temps. Good, prompt communication from owners Chuck & Darlene. Downside, steep stairway down to cottage..

Owner's Response: thank you for your review....a couple of small corrections...lifesabeach is located in Selma Park about 1 mile walk along the beach...writer referred to Davis Bay which is close by...We have photos on web site showing steps....their are 33 steps to walk down from where you park your car.....Please consider this if you have issues with steps....as for the comment on the beds being comfortable....they also are micron wrap protected which means prevention of bed bugs....the mattresses are sealed in this enclosure...info on that on web site.... cooking utensils are of superior quality....Reviewer referenced temp as low 20s..She was referring to Celsius.which was around 70 farenheit..Later in July and August temps are hotter but being on the ocean most of the time we have niceb breezes..Fans are available if required...Normally the area is below 80 degrees farenheit all summer..We really do appreciate comments issued by guests and thank you Jill for your review

SIMPLY THE BEST!!!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment I contacted Chuck and Darlene to the moment we departed after a three week stay, we could not have asked for more of them or Life's A Beach. Chuck responded promptly and patiently to each and every email and was waiting our arrival in the driveway to assist us with our luggage. Once opening the cottage door, we were simply overwhelmed by the effort put forth to add Christmas cheer on our behalf as we were renting over the holidays. From an exquisitely decorated tree and many fresh poinsettias, a water view dining table set with red charger plates, a set of scented pillar candles on timers, a variety of lovely décor in each room including a seasonal bedspread, to the automatic on/off outdoor lights, the atmosphere could not have been more cheerful. The cottage was absolutely immaculate, the kitchen supplied with everything one could possibly require, the bathroom stocked with a large supply and variety of spotless, soft white towels and fine colognes, necessary items for the washer and dryer and bowls, treats and cloths to wipe the feet of our dog. In addition, there was a brand new television purchased in time for our arrival.
At the end of each day, the patio door had many nose prints on it as the spectacular view of the ocean, Trail Islands and mountains, the sea birds and loons, the otters, the fishing boats, the tugs towing barges and Vancouver Island lit up at night kept drawing us back time and again. Darlene has an exceptional eye for décor and thus, once at the cottage, it can be difficult to tear yourself away despite the fact that it is centrally located for shopping, restaurants and many dog walking trails.
When it was time to depart, we reluctantly climbed the 32 stairs in a light drizzle only to find our dog wrapped in a towel and snuggled in Darlene's arms. She and Chuck are the consummate hostess and host. Nothing or no one is overlooked at this little piece of paradise. We could not recommend Life's a Beach more highly!!

At home instantly

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful place, exceptionally equipped for people who like to cook; sweeping, serene views and handy to everything the Sunshine Coast has to offer. The cleanest place we've ever rented anywhere in the world. Book-ended by Fairmont Whistler and Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, Life's a Beach Wins hands down.

Owner's Response: As a owner of a short term rental we always welcome direct comparisons from seasoned travellers and a consistent theme is how guests contiinually in our reviews refer to cleanliness...and comparisons to other rentals they have been to that do not meet our standards according to guests...Cleanliness is about spending the resources to achieve that perfection....using micron sealed mattress enclosures..Hiring 3 housekeepers not one to clean a house....Do not cut corners as that is the difference that warrants a guest taking a the time to write a positive account about this experience...Thank you guests for our 21st 5 out of 5 review....We are committed to that standard

Breathtaking! You will not be Disappointed!

  • 5 of 5
You will not be disappointed with this cottage!! I can not say enough good things about it. It literally has everything you need while you are away. Chuck and Darlene have not missed a thing!! The view's are breathtaking, the cottage is immaculately clean, wonderfully decorated. Such a comfortable place to just sit back, relax and listen to the roar of the waves. All you have to do is walk out your door and a take a few steps down and you have a beautiful beach to enjoy.Chuck and Darlene are the sweetest host/esses you can imagine. They will tell you all you need to know in regards to shopping, restaurants, where some great dog walking trails are. It is a fabulous place to bring your pooch, not only have They provided all you'll need, but have thought of all your dog needs too. A fenced dog run on the side, a cookie jar full of treats, and dog towels at every door...A wonderful place to have a romantic getaway! We will be back without a doubt. Thank you so much Chuck & Darlene! From: Kim+Neezar & Chloe

Owner's Response: Kim and Neezar and Chloe showed up for a very special holiday....Chloe the family dog was sporting a engagement ring hanging around her neck.....but before she headed to the beach for a swim i guess Neezar got the ring back quick......What makes this all so much for for us owners is that people reallly do respond with some very kind and appreciative reviews.....Guests need to find out the subtleties of a area they visit....not the tourist traps but things too do that they cant do at home....the beautiful hiking trails in the nearby mountains....the best fishing spots.....We specialize in catering to guests with dogs.....as our area has so many beaches and mountain trails where they can hang out with their dogs and kids....thanks again for the kind comments.....

A fabulous pet-friendly beachfront cottage

  • 5 of 5
This is a fabulous beachfront cottage with spectacular views of the ocean. We found it to be spotlessly clean, well equipped, and beautifully decorated to a beach cottage theme. A great place to bring dogs, who are made more than welcome with doggie towels and even a jar of cookies provided. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, and watching wildlife from the balcony such as herons, eagles and seals. There are great places to go walking in the area, and Molly's Reach at Gibsons Landing allows dogs on the patio! Be aware that there are some steps down to the property, but this seems to be the case with most beachfront cottages in that area. We will be back!

Owner's Response: When you receive reviews you hope people can differentiate between what is standard and what is exceptional.....Clearly we do cater to pet owners which is evident by the reviews....Fenced Dog Runs, complimentary dog towel, biscuits, close proximity to dog off leash parks.....Regarding the comments about steps we do have 33 steps to lifesabeach one....But thank you to those who review....We are proud that all 19 reviews to date are 5 out of 5....in 10 years we have never ever had a issue with dog owners and their dogs!! We love them
