About Kent & Krista Maurer

My husband Kent and I have recently retired to our dream life on beautiful B.C.'s Sunshine Coast. I was a high school art teacher and now am an artist and jewelry designer. Kent, a retired member of the Vancouver Police Department is constantly occupied with the care and up-keep of our home, cottage, and grounds. Our home sits on an acre waterfront lot overlooking some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world. We look forward to sharing this amazing place with many guests. Welcome!

Kent & Krista Maurer purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Kent & Krista Maurer chose Sunshine Coast

We built our cottage (carriage house) first and lived there while our main home was being built. We chose this location because it was simply the most beautiful place we had ever seen. We have travelled many places but believe nothing compares to Daniel Point! It may be off the beaten track for some but that is why we love it here!

What makes this cottage unique

The sunsets are unforgettable! Wildlife abounds all around; multiple pairs of eagles have a nests close by, daily deer sightings are not uncommon. Explore amazing volcanic rock formations and tidal pools with a myriad of sea creatures just down a set of steps to Daniel Point Marine Park at the end of our driveway.Pods of Orca Whales as well as large schools of feeding dolphins are spectacular sights from time to time. The star filled night skies will take your breath away!

Incredible property with breathtaking views.

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was amazing. This was our first time doing a VRBO and Kent and Krista were amazing hosts who ensured everything was in order. Their attention to detail was much appreciated. The cottage is incredibly well decorated with Krista's amazing art work and antiques. The bed was comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and more than adequate for our needs. Our stay was so peaceful and tranquil. If you are looking for relaxation, look no further, we would recommend this VRBO to anyone.

This rental Cottage was AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

This rental cottage was Amazing! The views from the cottage were breath taking and the BEST views from anywhere along the Sunshine Coast! There are SO many amazing views from many hiking trails in the area, but with every return to our lovely cottage we were still ALWAYS mesmerized with the views from our windows and deck. The cottage itself is beautiful and very well taken care of. The owners Kent and Krista are so kind and such a pleasure to meet. They are there if you need them, but also respect your privacy as well. The cottage is beautifully decorated and has all the amenities that you need for your stay. In traveling around and seeing other accommodations and the fees that are being charged, this cottage is the best value for your money!!

Unbelievable beauty at your doorstep

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Orca is one of the most wonderful places I can think of to stay. The view from your suite will take your breath away. Words cannot describe the beauty of the landscape at your doorstep. Whether you go to hike, kayak, or for a music festival there's nothing finer than returning to the Blue Orca at the end of the day and relaxing on the patio and soaking in the scenery. The suite is so well appointed you'll feel like it's your home away from home. None of the finer touches are lacking. Kent and Krista are the perfect hosts and provide a wealth of written material in the suite on the Sunshine Coast so there is no reason not to explore this wonderful countryside. We love it there so much that we go back annually. My advice is to go, stay and soak up the views.

Fabulous views! Very nice accommodations. Loved sitting on the balcony listening to the Bald Eagles and enjoying the view. The unit was well equipped for cooking your own meals. It was hard to leave the home to see the area and even harder to head home.
