About Marilyn & Ron

Ron is a professional accountant , continuing to work part-time in his public practice. Marilyn has retired as his office manager & is now full time on their beautiful oceanfront property. She is experiencing much personal fulfillment in hosting the many guests who stay at the cottage.

We have 3 grown children & 5 grandchildren, who bring great joy to our lives.

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

Why Marilyn & Ron chose Garden Bay

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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

The cottage is so nicely appointed with attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

We really felt welcomed by the hosts , all the amenities were provided , as listed .

Such a wonderful property overlooking the sea , from the cabin , the main house is not visible great care was taking in the placement of the buildings .

You feel that you have nature all around you to enjoy.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here, and looking forward to return for a little bit of sanctuary, a very inviting location .

Second time staying

  • 5 of 5

As usual, it was absolutely lovely at the cottage. My husband and I are happy to know we have a go-to home away from home when we visit the coast. We can’t imagine anywhere else being just as wonderful, and the hosts are very kind and accommodating. Highly recommended!

Away from it all....but not that far away....from it all

  • 5 of 5

We spent our Labour Day weekend at the SeaStar and absolutely loved it. Ron & Marilyn are very kind and helpful Hosts who obviously take meticulous care of their exquisite property and it shows. The cottage itself is spotless and very homey with a massive deck to enjoy the evenings on. We really enjoyed the short trek down to the shore for swims in the ocean. We will definitly be back and recommend it to one and all!

A beautiful spot.

  • 4 of 5

Everything was first class. The descent down to the waterfront was a bit of a surprise but when we looked around at the other properties it was reasonable by comparison. The host were away however they were helpful and friendly via phone and email.

Amazing Cottage on the Sunshine Coast

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location and set-up of the cottage. Marilyn & Ron were perfect hosts. The kitchen had all the things you needed to make a few meals at home. The bedroom was spacious & comfortable. Parking was easy as was the access to the beach. Plus there a nice deck area to stretch out & read or eat while you could see the ocean and nearby islands in the distance. It was so quiet and peaceful. Finally, there was a very nice binder with a listing of all of nearby restaurants and activities. We used that to select several hikes and restaurants; their recommendations were spot-on.
