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!

One of a kind

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Orca Cottage was absolutely breathtaking. While it is quite out of the way, the trip is more than worth it and we did not want to leave! The entire cottage was so well thought out, from the furnishings, the decor, etc. and the view was breathtaking every single time. I can't describe how amazing it was waking up to that view in the morning, even though the weather was not the best. Kent and Krista were great hosts, extremely helpful when we needed it but also very quiet and allowed us privacy. Krista was kind enough to gift us a print of her artwork as well.

Definitely recommend to grab your groceries and a couple of bottles of wine before you get here. Great set up with the kitchen and bluetooth speakers, and with the view, we felt no need to bring out our phones or watch TV. We went on a couple of hikes as well, Smuggler Cove and to the Skookumchuck Rapids - both very easy and peaceful hikes, we saw less than 5 groups on our trip.

Thanks again Krista and Kent for such a lovely trip to the Sunshine Coast, we will be back!

Breathtaking x10

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful location. My husband and I sat on the porch staring at the beautiful scenery. Kent and Krista thought of everything for their guest. A bonus was finding slippers at the front door. The direction to the cottage were excellent. Lots of beautiful trails to hike in the area. All in all this home was a 10+ . If you want peace and quiet and surround yourself in nature you will be very happy to stay at Blue Orca.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our one week stay was perfect! The home is very comfortable, beautifully decorated and the kitchen had everything we could ever need. Kent and Krista were perfect hosts, even alerting us to a pod of Orcas feeding not very far away. We were there the end of May, a perfect time for spring flowers and NOT a lot of tourists. The weather was perfect, no rain, in the 60's and sunny. We had a wind storm one day that was amazing (frightening and amazing at the same time). We were visited nearly every day by a rufus hummingbird, saw a parade of orcas, seals, eagles and even a far off rainbow. Can't say enough, nor find enough adjectives to describe our stay. The area was perfect for hiking, eating out and groceries.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Blue Orca cottage is our favourite retreat. Beautifully and artfully decorated, cosy with the wood burning fire place, incredible view. A home away from home.

And Kent and Krista are the perfect hosts who make sure everything is just right.

Blue Orca Cottage is located at the very end of Orca Road at Daniel Point. Daniel Point is the long narrow Peninsula shown on the map. We are the last property on the culdesac. Madeira Park, a vibrant marine community is nearby and has all you will need for supplies and Village activities. The Cottage is steps away from Daniel Point Marine Park for stellar hikes and views. No need to leave your deck though, the views are even better from your comfortable deck chairs! Boating, boat or float plane tours, diving, hiking, birdwatching, storm watching, swimming, fishing, golfing, music festivals, art tours, star gazing or simply enjoying the fascinating boat traffic are favorite activities in the area.
