Our 'SeaStar Cottage' is nestled in the most natural landscape, typically West Coast rock, fir trees and gorgeous waterviews of Malispana Strait, Texada Island and the most wonderful sunsets. Magnificent Daniel Point is renowned for its wealth of natural beauty... from seals and otters that frolic off our shores to the resident eagles that stand guard from their 'protected nesting area' just across the street.
This is your place of choice for , , ocean adventure , hiking, star gazing and of course, the opportunity to admire the variety of boats cruising by every day.

We are very fortunate to have travelled to several different destinations around the world, and always enjoy the opportunity to experience different cultures. A few of our favorite activities include snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, boating, golfing, reading & entertaining friends.
Marilyn & Ron purchased this cottage in 2009
This vacation rental is on the property of our new home here in Daniel Point, Garden Bay, BC. We purchased the oceanfront lot in 2003 and waited until 2009 to begin the building of our home. As Ron was getting closer to retiring from his practice we felt it was time to realize our dream of living by the ocean. So here we are!! And we love it so much we thought we should share it with others!
The cottage is private, being set about 150 feet up the lane from the main house.
We are sure you will enjoy the beauty & serenity of this place, as we do. The ocean is about 250 feet from the cottage & is accessible for those able to do stairs . At the water's edge their is a flat outcropping of rock, allowing for some exploring of the fascinating marine life (particularily seastars). For the adventurist, we also have 2 sea kayaks available to you.
We absolutely loved our stay at SeaStar Cottage! Ron & Marilyn are wonderful, gracious hosts. The cottage is lovely - fantastic views - nicely finished & decorated.
We loved the hikes close by here and exploring the nearby lakes. We especially liked the sandy beach park at Ruby Lake.
Our first visit here, but we think it won't be our last! Hope to be here again sometime for some delightful R & R.
Thanks for making this beautiful cottage available Ron & Marilyn!
Until next time,
John & Kathy
A beautiful location and an amazingly chilled experience. The Cottage was extremely comfortable and the attention to detail made it Even more so. The deck in the evening with the glass effect fire pit made our stay really special. Marilyn and Ron made us feel really welcome and the information pack was extremely useful in finding our way around, and Marilyn went the extra mile in introducing us to our favourite eatery at Laverne's in Garden Bay. Overall a really memorable stay.
We are very happy that we chose to stay at the cottage for a week. It is so peaceful sitting on the deck listening to the sounds of nature and watching the boats go by. There are lots of places to explore in the area.
The cottage is so clean, comfortable and well equipped. Having a covered deck was nice as we could sit outside even in the rain and kept warm by the fire table.
The owners were very pleasant to deal with.
You can't beat a covered south facing deck with a fire pit, the quiet of Daniel Point, or the attention to detail from Marilyn and Ron. The kitchen is well equipped, the cottage wonderfully comfortable and private, and the location absolutely ideal for trekking around the coast.
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at this cottage! Marilyn and Ron were prompt with emails after booking and greeted us upon arrival to answer questions we had. The cottage is very well maintained and was the cleanest rental I've ever stayed in, almost like brand new. We enjoyed the fire pit, walking to the beach to sip wine at sunset, and the soaker tub. We rented a motor boat at Madeira harbor and had fun on the water too. Would not hesitate to stay here again.
My husband and I arrived late to check in due to a family emergency and when we arrived, we found a beautiful anniversary card and a bottle of wine- so incredibly thoughtful!
The cottage was immaculate and even better than the photos.
We spent several hours on the covered deck enjoying the fire table and cozy blankets. Two resident eagles perched most of the day in the tree outside the cottage, a delight for my husband.
We asked for a later checkout and Marilyn generously offered to allow us to stay until late afternoon, so we were able to enjoy a bit more solitude before our trip back.
I recommend highly staying at SeaStar - we will be back!!
Sea Star is a wonderful oasis - a beautiful place to get away and take the weight of life off your shoulders for a while. The cottage is cozy, peaceful, and well provisioned with all the amenities you need. The deck and outdoor living space are excellent for viewing eagles, ocean and islands, sipping a glass of wine beside the outdoor fire pit. Lovely beach area at the base of the property, local hikes with amazing views of Pender Harbour. Quaint near-by gift galleries and town centre. Sea Star is our favourite romantic get-away
We also have 2 sea kayaks available for the experienced user.
