Chris and Jenn Fletcher purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Chris and Jenn Fletcher chose Sunshine Coast

I came to the Sunshine Coast nine years for a holiday and never left. Once I stepped off the ferry I felt a sense of peace wash over my whole body. The air was so crisp and clean and the wild life was amazing. On my first day to the Sunshine Coast I saw a bear, deer, eagle, loon, raccoon and a beautiful hummingbird.

The next day I was here I went down to a magical spot called Welcome Beach, and there was a full sand oceanfront beach to run and play with my two young boys. I looked in front of me and noticed a cottage and house were both for sale, I called the realtor and bought the place within a week.

Not once did I ever look back as I knew Halfmoon Haven was to be shared with people from all over the world. It is a place of tranquility and peace as well as a place for you and your family to build a lifetime of family memories. We have many families who we have been coming for nine years straight which is why we are booked out in our high season a year in advance.

If you want to have a holiday where you can relax in the Sunshine on our beautiful beach, have a five star gourmet meal, a relaxing deep tissue massage, a kayaking trip, a canoe trip, or have a

hot tub at sunset while you watch your family play a game of badminton or beach volley ball on our sand court, then you have a small glimpse of what Halfmoon Haven has to offer you and your family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Halfmoon Haven is a beautiful vacation spot on the Sunshine Coast, B.C. I took my women's group, six of us, there for a vacation and we loved it. The accommodations were spacious and tastefully furnished, the hosts were helpful and friendly and the weather was perfect. We walked along the beach with eagles soaring above. Halfmoon Haven is located on Welcome Beach, which is the best beach on the Sunshine Coast. We hiked in the old growth forests and dined at an excellent restaurant in nearby Sechelt. As we luxuriated in the large hot tub shy deer came to visit us. The beauty of the area and the soothing sound of Mother Ocean provided a healing sanctuary for all of us. I would highly recommend Halfmoon Haven for your next vacation.

Absolute paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at many retreats, resorts and B+Bs in my travels and I have to say that Halfmoon Haven ranks at the top of my list. My friends and I keep coming back here - we jokingly call it our second home! It's a short, easy, beautiful journey from Vancouver, but it feels a million miles truly feels like home away from home thanks to all the TLC that's been put into this property. We've stayed in both the cottage and the suite and both are wonderful: very comfortably furnished and clean, with all the amenities we ever need. Both have absolutely stunning ocean views, with big patios equipped for outdoor dining and sunsets accompanied by wine. We like to begin and end each day in the big hot tub overlooking the sea - paradise!

Chris and Jenn are wonderful, gracious hosts who always go out of their way to meet any requests we have before and during our stay. Jenn's Hawaiian "lomi lomi" massage heavenly and unlike any other kind of massage! Sooo relaxing. It's also excellent value! A treat beyond words.

The natural beauty there is stunning - another factor that keeps us coming back. We love walking on the quiet beach right in front of the property and having a fire in the beachfront fire pit at night. The stars are wonderful.

Anyway, I can't recommend Halfmoon Haven enough. We've spoken with many guests who return again and again because they know they need not look any further for what they want. Truly a wonderful place!

Peaceful, beautiful, and amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying on the Sunshine Coast, and it was by far one of the best family vacations we have been on. The accomadations were great, and there were no problems what so ever. Everything was clean and up to date. Now the view was the best part. Ocean front and spectacular, there are no words to explain the view, you can only see for yourself. The owners were also very nice and made us feel very welcome. The food was well stocked and the needed appliances and kitchen utensils were there. Halfmoon Haven was great for my kids and my older mother. My family and I will definitely be staying here again in the near future.

A visit to paradise

  • 5 of 5

I went to Halfmoon Haven with my wife and had a wonderful five days. We stayed in the main house, which is large and roomy. Our bedroom had a beautiful view of the ocean and we woke to the calming sound of Mother ocean. The property is on Welcome Beach, which is the best beach on the Sunshine Coast. We enjoyed late nights in the hot tub, looking up at the stars and completely relaxing. The owners, Chris and Jenn Fletcher, are very welcoming and helpful. There are many old growth forests nearby and hikes and we could go into Sechelt for a delicous dinner, a few minutes down the road. We highly recommend Halfmoon Haven to others. It feels like a spiritual and healing place where you can be nurtured and enjoy the beauty of nature.

Not at this moment as advertised

  • 2 of 5

This is a lovely site with lovely potential, but it is currently somewhat run down, and not as the pictures would imply, nor are all services advertised given. I would not exclude this as a possible rental--there are many plusses--but find out from the owners if they have addressed recent problems before you rent. If they have, go for it!

Owner's Response: Dear valued guest, thank you for your feedback and you will be pleased to know we have closed for our low season to do full upgrades to both our deluxe suite and our beach cottage. We will be re-opening in April with brand new fixtures, appliances and extra amenities. Plus you will always have your million dollar beachfront view.

Pay for the view

  • 2 of 5

While the sunshine coast is a beautiful place to visit, I will not be choosing Halfmoon Haven again. The view was amazing from the beach front cottage, as well as from the hot tub (when it was functioning), but it pretty much stops there. With a poorly stocked kitchen, furniture that was dirty, cluttered living spaces, and a generally run-down cottage (with a leaky roof), I would recommend this rental only if you plan on spending the majority of your day at the beach and don't mind getting rained on through the roof while you sleep. I felt it was overpriced as well.

Owner's Response: Dear valued guest. Thank you so much for the updates we have fixed the window seal leak and re-stocked the kitchen. Our regular cleaner was away so the cottage did not have all the usual items you would be used too. You will be pleased to know we have closed down for our low season to upgrade all the units and grounds so Halfmoon Haven will be all shiny and new for our high season in 2016. We take pride in being the number one booked vacation retreat on the Sunshine Coast for the past 10 years and we continue to strive to bring the best service and value to all our guests. We welcome you to come back next year to see all our new features and improvements.

Peaceful and Charming

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the last week of July and found the site both peaceful and charming. The owners were wonderful and Jenn gave us very relaxing, soothing massages. There were 10 in our party so we used both the beach cottage and the suite and found that suited our needs ideally. We had beautiful weather and used the beach area every day; we had numerous sightings of the gray whale, which excited both the kids and the adults. There was plenty to keep the kids satisfied with the pool table, games, hot tub, beach and tramp.... This gave the adults the opportunity to rest as well as play with the kids. The location is near enough to Sechelt and the Egmont that there was plenty to do if we wanted an outing. We would do it all over again!!
