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.

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.
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.
What a truly beautIful home / place / part of the world. This house is a kids haven. Our troop went wild for the sensational treehouse in the garden, plus the hot tub, plus the beachcombing, plus the games, plus the hide-and-seek on the magical garden. Whilst we enjoyed the spectacular vista with a glass of wine.
What an incredible place - peaceful, relaxing 5 star accommodation with world class views. Everything was immaculate, with every need taken care of. Will definitely be back!
This was our second year at Halfmoon Bay Cottage. Again we had a fantastic time. We love the complete privacy of this spot yet proximity to the beach when you want it. Despite being a year older our kids still had fun on the play structures. Nothing beats buying prawns right off the boat and cooking them an hour later. Highly recommend it!
This was our family's second year at this property. Very beautiful and relaxing vacation spot!! We hope to be back again next year.
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 owner was spectacular in getting back to us with information.
The walk through Pirates Cove was a mild and scenic outdoor adventure.
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.
