THE SETTING ... MAGICAL!

Beauty is all around! Set within Sandy Hook; a virtually untouched, hidden sandy gem on the Sunshine Coast.

A very large, green forest of trees surrounds an almost landlocked sea, at the foot of a very large mountain.

The perfect spot to experience as much or as little of both worlds - land or sea!

The space
THE SPACE ... A CANADIAN DREAM-COME-TRUE!

This authentic, cathedral rooftop “beach house”, known as Sechelt’s Garden and Secret Beach Getaway, is located within its own snug enclave of Sandy Hook, on a no-through road, along the east side of Sechelt Inlet.

This beach house boasts 2100 sq ft of interior space, featuring an enormous vaulted ceiling with panoramic forest views, including a view towards the magical interlocking juts of land up Sechelt Inlet.

There are two levels available - the executive level and the garden level, and only one level is ever rented at a time.

This home has everything you *need* for your relaxing time away, and everything you *want* for it to be one of the memorable vacation homes you’ll visit.

`♡ ´- -`♡ ´- BETTER THAN A HOT TUB!

Imagine hanging in pristine, clear water with a dock close by, glorious sand at your feet, and camera in hand, capturing the end of a most beautiful day. Count shooting stars and slowly shifting constellations as you float, all while you’re serenaded by crickets and hummingbirds, and maybe even a loon or two.

This is truly a place to relax and unwind, the amazing bit - it’s only 5 minutes from the promenade-hugging, seaside village of Sechelt.

`♡ ´- -`♡ ´- NEW FOR 2021: BEACH TOWELS AND 4 PADDLE BOARDS PROVIDED!

`♡ ´- -`♡ ´- NEW FOR 2021: LAUNDRY
Brand new this year is a common area laundry room. I have a very large front-loading LG washing machine and very large front-loading LG dryer for your complimentary use.

-`♡ ´- -`♡ ´- NEW FOR 2021: YOUR OWN (S)HE SHED - OFFICE SPACE!
Brand new this year is dedicated office space for two - complete with high-speed wifi internet. This means two full desks with drawers, 2 rolling office chairs, a lovely rug, window and barn door! All decked out within a white with touch of warmth, wooden she shed.

While the minimum rental is 3 days, why not take advantage of my 7-day discounted rate? Stay longer, and make this a workcation - for the whole family. Experience, grow, rejuvenate! Hey, maybe this could even change perspective on where to live for the rest of your life!

Longer stays means safer stays - experience new surroundings, from the confines and safety of your home away from home!

If monthly rental is something which may interest you - ask me about it.

-`♡ ´- -`♡ ´- BARBECUE ON THE COVERED UPPER DECK - WITH A VIEW!

-`♡ ´- -`♡ ´- -`♡ ´- -`♡ ´- -`♡ ´- -`♡ ´- -`♡ ´- -`♡ ´-

Imagine lounging in patio chairs, three steps outside your duvet-cozy bedroom, sipping tea or coffee, all the while listening to the wind rustle the tall cedar and maple trees all around you.

Imagine listening on your private deck, to the raindrops play with the rooftop, then imagine listening to the colourful hummingbirds swoosh past you aiming for one of several colourful nectar feeders.

THE FEELING
Refreshing and simple - modern and artsy inspired by the lush forest, and sea-fronted adventures, rooms reflect the breeziness of their seaside setting; each freshly painted - white with a touch of warmth.

Soothing - mood lighting, set by dimmer light fixtures, helps ease into meditation and/or sleep.

Cozy enough for that romantic getaway for two, and two minutes from wide-open seaside views.

Get the scoop on the cutest shops along the coast - with every booking; Am here to help you plan your escape - only minutes really, from the lower mainland!

THE UPPER DECK
One step from every room in the upper level, leads onto the private, semi-covered deck, and gets a full on view of the professionally designed garden, with a forest view surrounds it. This upper deck also has a lovely view of the ocean - and sunsets can be dramatic!

Featuring patio furniture on the deck to settle into in the morning, evening, or all day... along with a Weber barbecue...

High-speed Wifi is accessible from within and outside the suite, along the deck.


THE MASTER BEDROOM and ensuite BATHROOM
The master bedroom is unique - designed by a professional jeweller! Wait until you see why ...

It is currently has a queen-sized bed, (however a king-sized is arriving) adorned by soothing white - pillows, sheets, duvet and a very comforting, firm mattress.

The ensuite bathroom is set for relaxation - a very large tub with windows to the large maple trees, bubble bath, and a very large soothing shower and adjustable two shower head points. At the end of a long day, step into extra large sumptuous towels - perfect to wrap anyone around in.

With hairdryer..

THE CATHEDRAL CEILING GRANDE ROOM
Cozy - sink into the very large deep green sofas with your favourite book, alongside the fireplace; or remove the sofa cushions and lie on the floor - with a cozy view to the ocean.

This room lights up with natural light - that can be calmed with shades which expose views subtly.

The dining area is modern, elegant, and artsy; it compliments the outdoor surrounds.

The dinnerware is decadent; perfect for a celebrating special moments.

Where you’ll be

Sechelt, British Columbia, Canada

Discover your perfect c a l m ... ★ "Now 4" paddleboards!

It’s your holiday!

Celebrate with the attitude “... dolce di fare niente...” (italian for ‘the sweetness of doing nothing’)

Or excite your senses with "... the A D V E N T U R E starts here!"

How much or little you do - is completely up to you!

Beachcomb or float atop an air mattress at our secret beach, with one eye open for fresh dungeness crab; a slice of high-summer heaven. Sechelt Inlet is perfect for this type of activity, as it is more like an enclosed lake, than open ocean.

Paddleboard by sunrise or sunset; the interlocking juts of land in the distance, make for surreal backdrops.

Calm water kayak or canoe, while shoal searching for the glow of the trailing bioluminescence.

The perfect Lighthouse Pub and restaurant, also with a covered deck is less than 5 minutes away by car, be the first to test how far it is by paddle?

Hike all around; select from Mt Richardson National Park, Hidden Grove, as well as Tetrahedron Provincial Park - h i k e up from my backyard - to a 360 degree view - and Mt Steele Cabin!

Mountain bike in our world class Coast Gravity Park, just 6 minutes drive away.

Scuba dive. A popular dive site is nearby at Tuwanek Point Marine Park, where fish are so varied and numerous that you may think you’re snorkelling in Hawaii. The chill of the waters in the inlet will quickly disabuse you of that notion. Access to this aquarium is by water only. The closest suitable public access points are Porpoise Bay Provincial Park and Tillicum Bay Marina.

GETTING HERE

Where does a Horseshoe Bay ferry ride complete with a visual buffet of the high peaks of the Coast Mountains drop you off at? The Sunshine Coast of British Columbia!

Yes! A short 90 minute hop (ferry) and skip (drive) from Vancouver takes you to the very cute, laid-back, seaside village of Sechelt - also described as land between two waters.

Sechelt, is centrally located on the Sunshine Coast; 25 minutes south is the famous town of Gibsons (shooting locale for the long-time series The Beachcombers) and 30 minutes north is Madeira Park close to the jumping off point to the World-reknown fjord Princess Louisa Inlet.

Eight kilometers from the promenade-hugging Sechelt, is where I call home, Sechelt's Garden and Secret Beach Getaway!

When you are here, you're the perfect mix of near and far. Far enough from noisy Vancouver, and near enough to one of many possible stunning day trips to explore!
