SUNSET COVE BOATHOUSE - OCEANFRONT STUDIO ON TEN WOODED ACRES

Halfmoon Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Ten oceanfront acres await you in Halfmoon Bay! The Boathouse sits literally ON the water's edge nestled on a secluded cove and surrounded by beautiful woods. Awake with the resident eagles, gulls, ducks and otters playing in the flow of the babbling creek in the bay below. Sip your tea on the deck while watching the cove come alive.

You WIll have easy access for swimming, sunning, fishing and paddling in either of our rowboats or your own vessel. Take the trails for an easy tour of the property and hike to the high bluff to watch the spectacular sunsets. Whatever your favorite way to relax, indulge!

You WIll feel right at home with a fully-equipped, kitchen and all the comfortable amenities. Try your luck at catching dinner - or let the local fishermen do the catching - and have a true West coast seaside barbeque over the open firepit and grill. Yummmm!

Once you reach Sunset Cove, you will never want to leave. But, be sure to explore all the wonderful things that the Sunshine Coast has to offer. Countless and varied hiking and biking trails take you to magical places impossible to see from your car. Bring your kayaks, canoes, or boat (or rent them nearby) to see the coast, inlets and lakes by water.

Or, bring your clubs and play a round of golf on the local links. If you like exploring indoors, the coast is home to many artists who display their work in public and private galleries. Discover the history of the area in the local museums or visit the Chapman Creek Fish Hatchery and learn about spawning salmon.

Perfect for a memorable romantic getaway, a lone traveler's hideout or a small family or group of friends, the Boathouse is the ideal place for you to find peace and serenity and a home base from which to recreate in your own way.

About The Owner

We fell in love with the Sunshine Coast on our first visit, September 2000. The surrounding nature, the small-town feel, the people ... the blackberries ... it was all wonderful!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2001

Why The Owner chose Halfmoon Bay

When we first saw this beautiful property, we peeked in the window of the cottage and made a commitment to do whatever we could to have this little piece of paradise. So, we ran home and sold everything we owned and now we're able to share it with everyone who visits.

What makes this cottage unique

For us, as soon as we turn off the Sunshine Coast Hwy. onto our long, winding driveway, there's an immediate sense of calm and relaxation as we're drawn through the trees and down to the water's edge. We love the sound of the flowing creek coming from the mountains behind us into the bay below, the room to roam over the ten acres and the local wildlife that come to play in the cove.

Springtime at the Boathouse

  • 4 of 5
Stayed at the Boathouse for four nights and loved it - gorgeous sweeping view of the ocean. Sheltered location; minimal wind. Stunning sunset can be viewed right from the couch through the glass doors. Very cozy feel to the place. Wood stove heats the room in a jiffy. Loved the electric heater in the bathroom. Bed was comfortable enough for a good, sound sleep. The place was quite clean and the fridge spotless. Property is great for exploring along the creek or a quick walk up to the top of the hill; Smuggler Cove is a short drive away for a longer walk. Well equipped with a few DVDs/VHS, puzzles, games, magazines, spare blankets, information about the local area. A few little things that could use improvement - mildew stains and some broken tiles around the base of the shower, the BBQ has issues but still cooked our food on the two working flames, no plastic flipper for the non-stick pans, barely-working can-opener (though the kitchen was quite well-equipped compared to other cottages we've stayed at). The larger row boat leaked quite heavily but we didn't discover this until we'd hauled it down to the water. Took it back up and tried again with the little dingy and it worked fine for a little trip to the island at the mouth of the inlet on a calm day during low tide (thankfully we don't weigh much!).
There's a loud creek nearby and the inlet is really sheltered; you won't hear waves, but you'll hear the creek, which is still a lovely sound.
Bring along binoculars to get better views of the various birds on the inlet and see the seals around the rocks. People also wrote in the guest book about viewing orcas and dolphins.
***Mobility Warning*** it's not just a concrete walkway to the cottage; it's a steep set of rock/concrete stairs. They're well-built, sturdy, and totally fine for most people, but for those with hip/knee issues or unsteady on their feet it could be difficult.
***OVERALL*** We loved the place in spite of the few deficiencies and would definitely go back again! It's a charming cottage perfect for a weekend of reading, painting, relaxing, napping, bird-watching, or just staring at the ocean.

We stayed in Falling Creek Cottage for two nights, for a relaxing break away from Vancouver. We took our dogs along so we could hike and explore during the day and relax in the evenings. We couldn't believe how stunning the location was when we arrived - unfortunately we had rain for most of our stay, however that didn't stop us having a bbq (as it's under cover) and taking the rowboat out for sunset (we were lucky enough for the rain to stop and some blue sky to break through to catch an amazing sunset). Wish we could have stayed longer and will definitely be back in the Summer to see it in the sunshine! Thanks again! Katy
