About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

Eagles Nest at Daniel Point is a large (5200 sq ft) and beautiful home built on a bluff overlooking the ocean. The home was the PNE prize home for 2000 and sits on 3/4 of an acre with its own private cove. It has a large number of windows which look out on the views, an 18 foot ceiling in the livingroom, and all the finishings in the house are first class. There are three decks all facing west to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. The main level has a large and well appointed kitchen. There are three ovens, 6 gas burners, two refridgerators and two in-island coolers for veg and fruits. The mediaroom has a highend system with surround sound for great movie watching. The library is well stocked with a wide variety of books for a good read. The master bedroom has a wonderful king bed and the other three bedrooms have equally great queen beds. The gamesroom (1200 sq. ft) has a pool table, foosball, air hockey and a ping pong table (and a beer fridge-sorry, you have to fill it). Outside the gamesroom is a large deck with a hot tub. This is a great place to relax at the end of the day and watch the sun go down.

Outside there is a childrens play area with a slide, swing, sand pit and toys. Below the house is a large patio for sun tanning. And below that is a private beach with its own deck. There are three kayaks located there for guests to take out on the ocean and enjoy. There are many places to paddle. One place we like is a group of islands a short distance offshore which are the home for many seals and sea lions.

The beach itself is not sandy. Proper footwear is needed to walk on the stones. The water, even in the summertime, is not very warm but I like to take a dip on hot days. For swimming I would recommded going to one of the nearby lakes. They are very warm and pleasant in the summer.

Why Murray Stephenson chose Sunshine Coast

We were particularly impressed by the natural beauty of the area and when we saw this wonderful home with such an incredible view, we decided to buy it. There isn't a day goes by that we don't pinch ourselves over how lucky we were to find this home.

What makes this house unique

The best thing about Eagles Nest is you can choose to be very active with a multiple of physical and mental activities or you can just sit on the deck sipping wine. You can watch the ocean with its many boats or the eagles as they soar overhead.

Whether our days have involved hiking, kayaking, swimming or just sunning ourselves, we always have a very peaceful, contented feeling. (Almost sounds like a John Denver song doesn't it).

We even spotted an orca chasing a seal from the deck!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Murray for the fabulous stay!

In short: the house has a stunning view, it is very clean, the beds are comfortable, and it has extra amenities like a hot tub and games room.

We went to Eagles Nest over the May long weekend for a ladies weekend getaway and loved every minute of being on the Sunshine Coast. We lucked out with summer weather, went kayaking, hiking, and loved spending time around the house. It was the perfect gathering place for a group of old friends to be able to stay under the same roof, cook, and spend time outside.

The house even has a rocky beach front water access, but it is a bit of a hike down MANY sets of steep stairs. We didn't mind this, but it wouldn't be ideal for children or elderly (so just a heads up!).

Our weekend was topped off with spotting an orca whale chasing two seals that we watched for a good hour from the deck of the house. Couldn't have asked for a better getaway!

Great ocean front property

What a great property. Lots of outdoor activities nearby and the games room kept everyone busy when it was raining out. We loved it and can't wait to return.

Gorgeous setting in a beautiful cabin...What a view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a weekend in March and lucked out on the weather. The cabin was exactly as described and exceeded our expectations. The games room and hot tub kept us entertained in the evenings. The cabin is a 20 min drive from the skookumchuck rapids which are well worth the 1hr long hike in. Highly recommend.

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

The overall experience from start to finish for our four day couples getaway was outstanding. We had high expectations and these were easily exceeded from the incredible views to the home itself. The home is equipped with all the amenities to prepare meals in the gourmet kitchen, to enjoy a book in the library or solarium, watch some shows in the media room or to have some fun in the games room playing some pool, there was space and something to do for everyone. Murray was excellent to deal with and I would definitely recommend Eagles Nest at Daniel Point for a amazing couples getaway.

There are three kayaks at beach for use by guests, a young childrens play area and two bikes for guest use.

We have a local chef who is available to prepare dinners at Eagles Nest. Guests who have used his services have been very pleased. If you wished to take advantage of this service, it would be advised you reserve him well before your arrival.

A registered massage therapist is available to come to the house and provide her services. If you wish to set up an appointment prior to arrival that can be done by contacting her directly.
