If you feel 'bushed,' sail to Sunshine Coast, a short ripple from Vancouver. Smell the clean, fresh air. Barooga has lush berry bushes and a path to our private beach on Georgia Strait. Focus on bald eagles, hummingbirds, loons, and jays. Turn over a beach stone, let the ocean life tickle your palms. Hike up, relax on the deck with a cool drink. Inhale the view, islands, lighthouses near and far, cruise ships dancing toward the Inside Passage and Alaska.
Fully furnished, three bedroom, private waterfront house for weekly vacation retreat, situated between Sargeant and Halfmoon Bays. Two hours from Vancouver, forty minutes of which is a pleasant ferry ride across Howe Sound. The main three-piece bathroom has a shower. The second washroom has a toilet and a basin.
Kitchen has everything including a corkscrew. Sleeps up to six people. Gas barbecue on large deck. Paved two car driveway. Path to a private beach through a park-like setting. The spacious, private deck with the view is exceptionally functional with the covered and well-lit area.
Alder and maple firewood is stacked next to a fabulous fireplace. Light the fire, have a crackling, cozy conversation. Reading in the old fashioned way is a unique experience in Barooga's natural, peaceful setting.

Biking weekend getaway
The house was perfect for our weekend getaway. The view was gorgeous and Robyn and John were very accommodating. Would definitely recommend staying here!
The house has a large balcony with an impressive view. Hot tub was amazing. On the downside the furniture was pretty old, dishwasher could not properly wash the dishes, and wifi speed was very low. Overall, we had a great time!
Thank you for reviewing your Barooga experience. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. Every year we are renewing parts of the house. The large extendable table, the carpet, recliners and kitchen cabinets are new. This week, we are replacing the living room blinds. The solid maple table and chairs in the kitchen may be next. There could have been an issue with the loading of the dishwasher. We will ask for more opinions from our guests this summer. Telus speed test shows up to 22 Mbps download speeds in the living room. The number of users and distance could have been factors when you made your observation. We appreciate your comments.
We have been using VRBO for a long time. Barooga was by far one of the best experiences and rentals we have been too. The setting is stunning...but that is typical for the sunshine coast. There were four of us (two couples) and the house was set up very nice and exactly as described. The yard and approach to the water are beautifully landscaped and cared for. The owners take great pride in making sure things are nice. Robyn and John are exceptional hosts that were very welcoming and helpful but were very mindful of our privacy. We will be back!
Along with my husband and two friends, we stayed at Barooga for ten glorious days. On entering the property the first you notice is a view with the 'wow' factor, an uninterrupted view of the water and coastline, it is fantastic. We found the property extremely clean and comfortable, it is furnished and fitted out to the highest standard, the outside deck has lovely seating and eating areas, perfect for soaking up that gorgeous view. The path down to the beach is steep but, our party aged 60/70's managed without problem, we saw otters, bald eagles and seals so a paradise for wild life lovers. Adjacent to the deck is a new hot tub, very welcome after a day of hiking and exploring. Robyn and John (the owners) were very helpful and friendly without being intrusive, this being our first visit to the Sunshine Coast their knowledge was invaluable, we cannot thank them enough for making our trip most memorable. It is always difficult choosing properties when you are in the UK and don't know the area but, with this one we really 'struck gold'. Thanks again Robyn and John
Absolutely Stunning Weekend at Barooga
Myself and my family went to Barooga for a May long weekend getaway. We could not have been more impressed. First of all, that view!!! We couldn't get enough of that view. We played bocce on the lawn, we went for walks, we had dinners and our morning coffee on the deck. It was comfortable, beautiful and relaxing. A great spot for all families.
Robyn & John were fantastic hosts- friendly and available to help whenever needed, but also respectful of our privacy.
We were so impressed and can't wait to go back! I have already recommended Barooga to many friends.
Thank you so much for such an incredible retreat!
We stayed here with our 4 kids and my parents visiting form France. They've been amazed!
Very nice house, big rooms, lots of space for everyone, great kitchen area with all what you need for cooking, beds comfortables, games, books, jigsaws, huge deck with amazing views, bbq, chairs and table, big sofa, hot tub, biiig garden for those wanting to run around. So peaceful.
