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.

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.

Great house, ideal location, gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 adults and 2 kids staying over easter. The home was beautiful, clean, and well laid out. The owners live part time here, so all the comforts of home are here too. The view from the kitchen windows and master bedroom are idyllic. Easy access to the water and a beach (not sandy, but easy-on-the-feet pebbles), as well as a little park for the kids to run around in. The corner store is a 5 minute bike ride away and has good hours. Sechelt is a great area for mountain bikers and we had good space to securely lock all our bikes outside. Our hosts gave detailed directions on how to get there and how to use everything. Richard was easily accessible (which was great when I forgot what the key code was) and our damage deposit was returned in a timely manner. We had a great weekend!
