About Richard Argue

My wife and I are semi retired and currently living in Point Grey in Vancouver. We had enjoyed the beautiful location with the old cottage on it for many years. In 2008 it was time to rebuild. Our new home takes full advantage of the properties ideal location.

Its views, its proximity to the ocean, the lovely adjacent swimming beach and the abundance of wildlife all around make it the ideal place to relax and restore oneself.

Excellent Beachside Family Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this home in Halfmoon Bay. It is modern and spacious, bright and airy, with great views of the water and bay.

The setting of this property is a real highlight. The pebble beach in the photos is readily accessible via steps at the bottom of the garden. There are also rocks to scramble on, and both are tremendous for adults and children alike. We had 4 adults and 2 young children and greatly enjoyed looking for sea life and skipping stones.

There is a small, well-manicured garden at the front (overlooking the beach), and a larger grass area at the rear of the house for throwing a frisbee etc. Although there are houses either side, it is very private due to trees either side and the offset levels of the respective properties.

Inside, the kitchen is well equipped, with modern appliances (owner had just installed new ceramic cooktop / oven prior to our stay). New laundry/dryer. Good flat screen tv, and plenty of board games, if you need them. In the bedrooms, the beds/pillows are very comfortable. Big walk-in shower/steam shower upstairs. The only thing we missed was a BBQ, but this is a minor quibble and we just planned our meals accordingly.

Richard, the owner, is friendly, responsive, and accommodating.

We've rented many VRBO properties over the last 15 years, and rated this right up there with the very best.

Stunning views and a nice quiet setting.

  • 5 of 5

The house is great, lots of bright rooms. The water is also just steps away and it's lovely to sit on the patio in the afternoon. We had a fabulous time.

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this incredible home. The home captured the gorgeous ocean views from all of its amazing windows. The attention to detail and craftsmanship was evident throughout the home.

Richard, the owner, was most kind and helpful. We can't wait to return and enjoy the peaceful tranquility this home offers.

Many thanks Richard!

We'd go there again in a heartbeat

  • 5 of 5

It looks just like the photo...its the nicest rental in Halfmoon Bay, spacious, comfortable, well built. It feels private in spite of being near to other homes. We quickly got into a rhythm there and didnt want to leave. We have rented quite a few different accomodations on the Sunshine Coast over the years and this one is our favourite.

Beautiful Space

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely come back again to this beautiful home!! The rooms were all very spacious and the beds are very comfortable. There's a steam shower upstairs that everyone was loving. The one room with the single bed could of had 2 to sleep 8 (since the rooms are so large!) I came here just for a short weekend getaway from the city with 7 adults. The kitchen was large and well equipped with things all very easy to find. You can walk down to the pebbled beach when the tide goes out and it's very nice. The house is equipped with a stereo that can be connected to your phone thru an aux wire or a wireless bluetooth speaker in the living room which is good for setting your own mood with music. The only problem we had was that the cleaning service that was done prior to our arrival. We don't wear shoes in our homes so we were all barefoot once we got into the house, we then noticed our feet were black after walking around for a little bit. Other than that, I really thank the host for allowing us to have a nice getaway.

Ill be back. Beautiful home, great location and the best host ever!!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a relaxed week away for the city- this is the place. Everything was perfect. The first thing that comes to mind is the view from the master suite we could have spent the day in bed just watching the tide come and go. What a view!!! and there is so much more. The owner treated us like old friends and his home is immaculate. The quintessential Sunshine Coast experience.
