HALFMOON BAY COTTAGE - PRIVACY AND SPECTACULAR VIEWS

Halfmoon Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

We invite you to our cozy 3 bedroom cottage in Halfmoon Bay. You will forget all the stresses of city living as soon as you arrive. Surrounded by the forest and taking in the expansive views over Halfmoon Bay and beyond to Vancouver Island’s snow capped mountains, you will soon experience a sense of well being and contentment.

Situated on a small hill adjacent to the shore, it’s only steps to the beach and the historic Redrooffs Trail that will take you to the Halfmoon Bay General Store, the Upper Crust Gourmet Store and the government wharf.

Watch bald eagles, blue herons and osprey share the sky. Closer to shore, you’ll see seals, otters and a great variety of waterfowl. Sunsets are spectacular and provide many photo opportunities.

In the summertime there is a steady stream of boat traffic as beautiful yachts head up Welcome Passage on their way to the famous cruising grounds of Desolation Sound. In the evenings, Alaska bound cruise ships can be seen heading up the Strait of Georgia in the golden glow of the setting sun. There is always something to see and there are many recreational activities for visitors.

Kayak in Halfmoon Bay or head over to Buccaneer Bay on Thormanby Island where you can enjoy one of the finest sandy beaches in the Strait of Georgia. Play golf at one of our challenging courses or go hiking on the many trails. Drive up to Egmont (35minutes) and enjoy the easy 45 minute hike into the famous Skookumchuk Narrows where you can view one of the largest and fastest tidal rapids in the world running at over 14 knots! Take an easy hike up Pender Hill in Irvine’s Landing and enjoy spectacular views of Pender Harbour (sometimes called “Venice of the North”), the Strait of Georgia and Vancouver Island.

Go fishing. There is excellent fishing with guides available in Secret Cove and other locations. Closer to home, you can try your luck right off the Halfmoon Bay government dock. Rent a boat from Buccaneer Marina in Secret Cove and explore the coastline and islands.

Or, just enjoy the cottage and relax. Sit on the deck and read your favourite book. Watch one of our many movies or rent one at the historic Halfmoon Bay General Store. Soak in the hot tub after going for your walk. The opportunities for your enjoyment are endless.

Read some of the many comments from our guests and then check our online calendar for availability. We'd love to host you for your special vacation or weekend getaway.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Another great weekend at the cottage. Christina and I talked all night and just enjoyed being together and with baby Connor too! Just love being up here and also having a long visit before going away again for a year.

Our family purchased the property in 1981 and then had the cottage built to lockup by a contractor. We spent the next few years making our cottage into a very special, comfortable weekend home and have continued to make many improvements over the years.

We chose locating on the Sunshine Coast for it's proximity to Greater Vancouver and yet also for it's unique location. It's only accessible via the ferry (a short 45 minute crossing) which makes it special. The Sunshine Coast enjoys a very relaxed lifestyle and provides residents and visitors with a great variety of activities not to mention the spectacular outdoors. We enjoy sharing our special retreat with guests who come from all over Western Canada, Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Texas, Hawaii and also some from Europe. It gives us great pleasure to welcome our guests to our little piece of paradise.

We chose locating on the Sunshine Coast for it's proximity to Greater Vancouver and it's laid back lifestyle coupled with lots of outdoor activities. See above for more details.

Our cottage has all of the amenities of a house in the city, yet we have total privacy on 1/2 acre of semi waterfront with spectacular views of Halfmoon Bay and beyond. We enjoy having our boat moored in front of our property and easy access to many cruising destinations. Our grandchildren enjoy the playground on our property, the hot tub and many other outdoor activities.

Wonderful Nights -

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time at the cottage. We enjoyed the moon setting on the water every night. We enjoyed the use of the amenities, our favorite was the outdoor shower. We also went to the Rockwater resort for a spa day and received a great massage over looking the inlet. Would recommend the cottage to all our friends and family.

The description is accurate
Photos accurately displayed the cottage
The owner was spectacular in getting back to us with information.
The walk through Pirates Cove was a mild and scenic outdoor adventure.

A fantastic time away!!

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived we knew right away that we were going to have a great time. We're not super duper fans of the beach (though we did enjoy Cooper's Greene and Porpoise Bay beaches), we thoroughly enjoyed staying in, lounging on the massive deck, chillin' in the hot tub while the kids played all over the property. The kids wanted to stay another week! The outdoor shower is the best ever and the home has everything you need. The kitchen was more than adequate and the BBQ was perfect (same as mine at home!). We are definitely coming back forever and ever.

Nice get away for a few days!

  • 4 of 5
My family had a great time at this cottage. Our stay was only a few days but it was a great little get away. Quiet and relaxing place to get away to and it turned out to be a relatively short drive and ferry ride from Vancouver. I would stay here again in the future! The owner was good to work with and was very responsive to our needs.

We have really enjoyed spending time in this wonderful house. The house is confortable and lovely, well furnished and equipped. The playground in the trees and the rockroom for children are fantastic. The hot tub with outdoor shower is a enchantment.
We felt like at home.
The area is very beautiful and quiet and we met lovely people.
The general store is historic and there is everything !
We are close to the nature and the animals.
Just go and enjoy !

Wonderful, private getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Such a wonderful cottage and amazing setting! Cottage is very spacious with three bedrooms, one with double bunkbeds!. Kitchen is fully equipped, we did all our cooking, but it looks like there are lots of take out options in the area. Fireplace keeps the cottage nice and cozy.
View from the cottage is amazing!! A large beautiful deck would be great in the summer. Hottub is very private and also has a wonderful view of the ocean and the stars at night!
I would highly recommend this cottage for rental.
