Overview

Garden Bay House Rental Photos and Description

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).

Great getaway from the city life! We were there for three days with our family's and Friends. The house is extremely roomy,so much activity for the kids, there were never a time that we had a chance to be bored. The surround view is just breath taking. We will definetely come back in the near future! Thank you so much Murray.

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.

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

The moment my group and I arrived we were amazed by the incredible view and how well maintained the home was. The entire home was fully equipped with cooking utensils, supplies, paper towels, toiletries, soap and shampoo. The large patios overlooking the ocean made each day very memorable from enjoying BBQ's to have morning coffee. I would highly recommend staying here. Thank you Murray for once again sharing your home with us!

Lovely nature retreat

  • 5 of 5

Stayed up here with some family and friends and from what we saw from photos we knew it was going to be a lot of fun, little did we know how many other incredible activities and views there are in the area. We encountered many bald eagles flying around, we kayaked to a small island off the shore teaming with seals, deer roam the area freely at all times and while going for a hike on pendar hill we spotted a black bear and a cub in the distance. The photos that are posted here don't do this retreat justice, beyond the home there are countless things to do and even if your not an adventure seeker, the retreat itself is full of things to do on your own or with friends. Even the neighbours that are up there are pleasant folks and super friendly. The best way to sum this place up is if the stepford wives were actually real and lived on the west coast of BC.

Wonderful Couples Weekend! Luxury Accomodation with Spectacular View!

  • 5 of 5

Our expectations were exceeded renting this gorgeous spot for a Couple's Weekend. The booking was so easy and we were thrilled with the home upon our arrival. We were greeted with breathtaking views and tons of space for all 8 of us (and 2 dogs!) to stay comforatably over our four day weekend. We enjoyed wine on the deck, kayaking, local hikes, movies in the theater room, dinner in the gourmet kitchen and curling up with a good book in one of the many reading nooks. Even when the weather didn't cooperate on the last day, we were more than entertained in the games room. The owner is very dog-friendly and was an absolute pleasure. I would definitely recommend Eagles Nest to anyone looking for a relaxing, luxurious and fun place to unwind!

Family gathering

  • 5 of 5

WOW! What a place and what a location. We were a group of 8 assorted close family over 3 generations and with 2 dogs. Eagles nest was just perfect for us. When 8 year old Sam walked into the house he said "Holy Macaroni" ! The house is stunning and Murray has equipped it so thoughtfully. We had fantastic weather and were able to swim in the cove and make use of the kayaks. The children loved Katherine Lake and were thrilled to see the Painted Turtles there as well as so many Eagles, Humming Birds, Deer, Chipmunks huge Starfish and Seals round the house. Sadly no Orcha - this time!

The huge games room was a great success and so cool when it was too hot to be active outside.

A really great family holiday with plenty of space to all enjoy quiet time as well as have fun together.

Very special memories were made and we are still talking about it.

Would love to return sometime or better still, win the lottery and make Murray an offer he can't refuse !!!
