Overview

Halfmoon Bay House Rental Photos and Description

Ocean-view House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

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.

The view the view

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 2 weeks at this amazing place. Our family consisted of people from ages 84 to 12. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful home. The views in front of the home were constantly changing, from little tug boats hauling huge cargoes to cruise ships on their way to Alaska. We basically lived on the deck. It was beautifully furnished with comfortable lounge and chairs, and had a great Bar BQ. The owners, Robyn and John live next door and that was so helpful. They had lots of knowledge of the area that they gave us. The path down from Barooga to the ocean was a challenge for those over 70, but not for the other ones. There were amazing hikes to go on, great cycling, and of course wonderful kayaking. We certainly want to return to this beautiful place.

Year 4!

  • 5 of 5

4th year and we asked our two boys (4 and 6) keep asking all summer - when are we going back to where the crabs are??!!! Every year we come back and every year is better than the last. The boys' favourite thing to donis hike down to the beach (or get a ride with Robyn) and look for crabs. We bring some hot chocolate and popcorm and play into the sunset.

But theres so much more to do: swim in beautiful Ruby Lake and eat at the Euby Lake Resort (ask for the chef's own smoked salmon or smoked sturgeon farfalle. Check out the unique harbour (and pub) in Egmont. Hike the Skookumchuck. Shoresurf at Davis Bay (get the fish tacos from the bus mmmmmm). Go into Sechelt and do some shopping, get some home made pizza, ice cream and and lattes from the general store. Paddleboard the inlet. Take in the weekend market or one of the many festivals. Take the Malibu up to Chaterbox Falls. Its up to you how much you want to do.

The house is beautiful with breathtakig panoramic ocean views. A bittle of wine and the patio lounger is amust for at least ine night.

John & Robyn thank you so much for being such great hosts. Youve helped us create memories with our children.

Memories Forever

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been going to Barooga for the last five years and we are going again this year! What does that say about how much we love the place. The family continues to grow and we will have six grandchildren there this year. The daily adventures are endless, the dinners on the patio fantastic...Every year I ask my family if they want to go back and I have always got an enthusiastic YES. John and Robyn are great Hosts that really make Barooga a perfect 10!! Life is all about memories and Barooga is one MEMORABLE PLACE that we will cherish forever.

Great Sunshine Coast / Barooga Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from seven wonderful days at Barooga! Likely the highlight was accomplishing the Barooga Grind and enjoying the beautiful beach! This was a perfect spot to move about on the coast line, from Gibsons up to Egmount we enjoyed gunking in each and every unique spot! Halmoon Bay General Store and Café was a wonderful experience, they have a tiny little beach near the general store that was a treat to sit at and drink our coffee! Views views views... we enjoyed every morning, afternoon and evening, we simply could not soak enough in. We enjoyed visits from all kinds of wild life, the birds were amazing, the deers beautiful and the orca whales that entered the area were magnificent! A day trip to Garden Bay and Irvines landing was great, we also enjoyed the Pender Harbour Jazz Festival. Thrift store hunting, walking about in the various small towns and simply relaxing at Barooga made this such a wonderful trip.

Robyn and John have outfitted the home perfectly, you will need nothing but yourselves to enjoy this beautiful piece of property. They are amazzzzzing hosts and we enjoyed our brief time getting to know them. You can't go wrong booking this place.

West coast heaven with a bunch of East coast lovers

  • 5 of 5

We booked this place for a west coast family vacation with our western family members from Vancouver and Calgary. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place. Our three adult boys enjoyed fires in the yard every evening and supplied us old timers with s'mores as we watched from the relative comfort of the deck.

Evening BBQs on the deck every night offered such treats as whales frolicking regularly most evenings and we even saw a fantastic meteor streak through the sky one day at dusk. Sunsets were also beautiful, as were the stars and lights from Vancouver Island across the Georgia Strait.

Our days were filled with hikes to local areas, like Skoocumchuck Rapids or Baker Beach.

We were able to do most of our own cooking in the well-equipped kitchen and saved loads of money. Plus we loved being able to have family dinner time together again.

Thank you Robyn, for giving us this wonderful opportunity with our boys (and eventually their girls) and allowing us to stay an extra day. It was hard to leave and I hope we will be back again some day soon.
