About Kent & Krista Maurer
My husband Kent and I retired to our dream life on beautiful B.C.'s Sunshine Coast. I was a high school art teacher and now an artist. 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 Garden Bay
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!

Views and Comfort
Staying at Blue Orca was a superlative experience for us: truly amazing views of Malaspina Strait and the coves around us from every window, lovely accommodation, super clean and in great condition, everything we could possibly need for cooking, excellent Wi-Fi, comfortable furniture, and most of all, the nicest and most helpful owners we’ve encountered in decades of travel. They could not have been more accommodating. The location was peaceful and quiet and made us feel we were truly “away”.
Though it it a twisty drive to the area, it was worth it. It was a good location to explore the north end, an easy drive up to Earls Cove for the ferry to Powell River and southward down to Half Moon Bay. Madeira Park nearby had everything we needed for even upscale groceries and for taking the enjoyable SloCat tour. Would not hesitate to book again and recommend most heartily.
Above and beyond what could have hoped for
This was the best holiday ever and we will be doing it again
This is by far the best place to stay on the Sunshine Coast. The cabin is very comfortable and has all you need for the perfect stay. Right down to a pod of orcas going by. We will be back. Already planning the next trip.
Best kept secret on the sunshine coast.
Everything about this place was fabulous.
The views in the evening, watching the changing skies, the local bird life - an amazing place, we didn't want to leave!
Great atmosphere and view. Enjoyed it all. Comfortable rooms. Whales, birds, seals, markets and hikes. Just wonderful.
Perfect place to unwind!
Beautiful cabin with the most spectacular view of the ocean. Kent and Krista , thank you for your hospitality and we will certainly be back.
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.
