Set in five acres of mature west coast forest including access to 260 feet of low bank waterfront commanding a sunny south facing point with a private beach. Seals and otters frolic among the islets and eagles perch in the cedars and ancient firs.

Short paths, benches and seating areas along the shoreline offer different perspectives from which to view the landscape and its native west coast flora and fauna.

THE AERIE -A graceful butterfly roofline and sweeping expanses of glass blur the boundaries between interior and exterior spaces in this new modern treehouse which reflects a contemporary twist on traditional typologies, especially corrugated metal boat sheds and cedar clad cottages.

A 10 ft. granite island anchors a modern kitchen and serves as a gathering spot in the open living area.

The master bedroom and ensuite enjoy private forest views. A queen sized bed and rainshower refresh.

Cleverly designed niches offer sitting and sleeping areas for extra guests.

About Heather

We bought the property in Dec 2005 as our future retirement home while we were still residing and working in Dawson Creek, BC. It was a successful vacation rental till Feb 2010 when we began a complete reconstruction of the main house and built a new guesthouse (Aerie) on the bluff above.

We made the move to the Sunshine Coast full time in January 2011 living first in the Aerie guesthouse and finally in Jun 2012, the expanded and renovated Pointhouse now a boutique B&B.

With the interesting guests from all over the world and a busy schedule of physician locums, retirement is still a ways off. Fortunately, life on the coast is a more relaxed pace allowing us more playtime, family time and travel opportunities.

Heather purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Heather chose Sunshine Coast

The Sunshine Coast is easily accessible from Vancouver-car,ferry, boat, floatplane, commercial/ corporate aircraft.

The location is spectacular - You have to visit to appreciate. Most beautiful landscapes on the Sunshine Coast.

Sargeant Bay Provincial Park is a little known jewel. A secluded log strewn halfmoon shingle beach with sand at low tide backed by a magnificent bird sanctuary and lovely hiking and mountain bike paths.

Gibsons, Sechelt, Pender Harbor and points in between offer innumerable opportunities for sightseeing, cultural and sporting activities and this property is located centrally to it all.

What makes this cottage unique

This estate offers one of the most luxurious, private and peaceful locations on all the Coast.

Everything about the property, both natural and crafted, is designed to induce relaxation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Heather & Bob



Thank you for an amazing stay at Aerie! The location is perfect, the house was very comfortable and modern. The floor to ceiling windows certainly enhanced our stay with the beautiful surroundings and views! Our kids especially were able to enjoy nature and the beautiful beach close by!



Thank you once again!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is a very special property, gorgeous down to every detail and more beautiful than the photos can explain. It is perfect for a couple or small family for any kind of getaway. Heather and Bob are gracious hosts who are there to support you and respect your privacy and the local reference book they provide is the most extensive i've ever seen at a rental. Their whole property shows evidence of meticulous thought and preparation, and we spent a wonderful, relaxing time here in mid-November. The location gives easy access to daytime adventures and supply runs, and the house is so nice you won't want to leave, ever. The well-appointed kitchen is great if you like cooking as we do, and the day bed in the main room gives you no excuses not to relax. The surrounding forest is gorgeous and visible from every angle and you can weather even the wettest storm in style, at one with your surroundings.

Soul-reviving quietude

  • 5 of 5

We carved out a week in late winter to spend on the Sunshine Coast with our children, 9 and 4 years old. How quickly we all sloughed off our urban harriedness at The Aerie: a tribute to minimalist, upscale clean lines which highlights the stunning environment all around. Somehow our days became jam-packed with contemplating the tides at Sargeant's Bay, scrambling up rain-forested trails, rock-throwing contests, and mixing with the locals (deer, eagles, dolphins and seals, among others). Did I mention the 360-degree glass shower looking out into the forest? The hot tub on the deck? Or the gourmet kitchen? How about the incredible grace with which Heather and Bob hosted us? Can't wait to return... Save a cinnamon roll from the Sechelt bakery for me!

5 star quality in every way!

  • 5 of 5

West Coast modern luxury..... a beautiful, open floor plan, high ceilings, architecturally thought out to fit the land incredibly. The floor to ceiling windows made it feel like I was falling asleep and waking up in the outdoors. Heather and Bob were such gracious hosts and the grounds are so nice to walk and spend time in. Our dog loved it too..... his daily walks by the ocean foraging for sticks and starfish!! You will not be disappointed. So many unique and special things about this place to mention........

Exceptional Home Set In Nature

  • 5 of 5

My son and I visited for 4 nights to explore the Sunshine Coast and this was the perfect place for us. We thoroughly enjoyed being able to use the bbq, hot tub, and to kayak and hike right from the property. The floor to ceiling windows and all the high end appointments inside were the ultimate luxury, yet we still experienced nature at its best all around us. The photos and description of the property are very accurate. We took day trips to lots of hiking trails nearby, and also a 5 hour boat trip to see spectacular scenery / waterfalls that were only accessible by water. We appreciate Heather and Bob's clear and prompt communication, recommendations, and hospitality. The care they take for their home is evident and it was wonderful that we had the opportunity to be guests for a few nights. I hope to return in the future with other family members.

An Aerie complete with the Eagles

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Aerie for an extended visit of 5 weeks! It is an incredibly magical place and it is like being in a tree-house enveloped in the middle of the beautiful green lush rain-forest.

The house is incredibly quiet and private and is equipped with every imaginable piece of equipment. They even have picnic blankets, umbrellas, wet-weather gear and a real chef's kitchen!

Heather & Bob treat their operation seriously from the minute you start your booking through until they say their final goodbyes to you. Everything you ask for is looked after very promptly and also with a high level of privacy attached to their visits. We loved sitting in the hot-tub at night under the trees and looking out at the sunset and the many stars in the night-sky. We hope to be bale to visit again & again through the years and would HIGHLY recommend The Aeire as a place of seclusion and yet one that is also very near Sechelt so that you can get in all of the supplies that you need. Thank You Heather & Bob for creating such a SPECIAL place!!
