Overview

Sechelt House Rental Photos and Description

This all-season beachfront property, ensconced in the forest, is truly a nook. A two-storey home comes fully furnished with all amenities.

There are three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Living room with high-vaulted ceilings which includes a wood burning fireplace. Large kitchen which is fully equipped - everything you need to make your home cooked meals. Large main deck with stunning view for entertaining and BBQ-ing. Two additional decks available - a 'chill-out' deck off the second floor, and a beach deck.

This beachfront property also offers a swimming beach, children's park, and boat launching facility, nearby.

The perfect weekend getaway in a private setting where our kids could explore, create & enjoy nature

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our weekend getaway in The Nook at Sandy Hook. What a fantastic, peaceful and private setting. Our kids spent 3 days exploring the beach, collecting shells, making forts out of drift wood, finding crabs, and just being kids and never asking for any screen time! The accommodations were lovely. We had everything we needed for cooking, cleaning, sleeping and entertainment. Tons of movies and DVDs to choose. Our only suggestion would be getting some blinds on the bedroom windows. Thanks for the fabulous stay!

Beautiful home with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Really nice house. Clean and well laid-out. Water from the tap the best you can get to drink! So many VHS tapes to choose from we were having a blast :) the living room is an awesome common space for everyone to play games and watch movies. The kitchen is fully loaded and the automatic garbage can made us feel like we were in the future.

Would definitely stay here again. Thanks!

What a great place!

  • 4 of 5

This property was exactly what we expected. Helen is extremely thorough in her directions and explanations of the amenities. Yes, there are a lot of stairs, but they are doable - you're in no rush, you're on holidays, right! The dishwasher was out of order when we were there, but not one of us died while washing the dishes by hand. The whole Sunshine Coast is a goldmine of treasures to explore - nothing is very far away and it is all amazing. We will definitely be back.

Cozy Cabin on the Water

  • 5 of 5

We got lucky. Another property we booked fell out and this was our back up site.

And it was perfect. Very cozy, amazing view.

Lots of wood available for the wood burning stove.

House comes stocked with lots of good unlike other properties that are bare.

There are 80 steps from the driveway to the house and 102 from the house to the beach. So a lot of steps. But well worth it.

Planning on returning in the summer to try some sun.

A view to remember

  • 5 of 5

My family and I adored the cabin and it's location as soon as we arrived.The kitchen was well supplied,the furnishings were nice and the outdoor deck,where we spent the majority of our time offered an amazing view.The waters in the bay were perfect for paddle boarding and the lower deck was a great place to pull them into.I'm the oldest of our family[60+] and the stairs seemed daunting at first,but I soon valued the exercise benefit in them.The rest of the family didn't think anything of them.We also discovered some well marked and novice friendly trails about a 15 minute drive from cabin.
