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 Sunshine Coast

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

Quiet and peaceful place - perfect for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is beautifully decorated and very well- equipped. We had a wonderful, relaxing three night stay. Sitting out on the cottage deck or down on the wooden deck (closer to the water) offered exquisite views of the ocean and tall trees. We enjoyed numerous nearby hikes and also several local restaurants. We highly recommend this lovely place and definitely plan to return!

Lovely suite in a gorgeous part of the world

  • 4 of 5

We saw a family of otters first thing, then the resident eagles. Pro tip: push the door in with your knee to unlock using the code.

We really appreciated the calm and quiet setting, the many kitchen supplies and key spices, and that view from that deck. Would love to return in summer. Thanks, Marilyn and Ron!

Chillin' in Se a Star

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great place to get away and relax

  • 5 of 5

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.

Sunshine Coast defined

  • 5 of 5

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.
