  • Cabin #3 - Alfie the A-Frame

    Cabin #3 - Alfie the A-Frame

    Airbnb's second "Most-Wishlisted" property across all of Canada, our beautiful loft cabin has incredible views of the Sechelt Inlet and gets all the afternoon sun. The beach is a three minute walk downhill, and our community is very quiet as it sits at the end of the road. Why not come and relax for a few days?

    What guests are saying:

    “Such a peaceful, relaxing cabin nestled between tall trees and overlooking the water. It’s hard to beat morning coffee on the top deck! You’ll probably have the best sleep of your life here. Falling asleep looking at the stars and trees through the window. The couch is perfect to cuddle up on after a day of hiking and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook! Jen and Gary are wonderful hosts, looking forward to staying in Alfie again!”

  • Rustic Waterfront Cottage

    Rustic Waterfront Cottage

    You can't get any closer to the water than this! The Courtenay Beach House was built over 40 years ago and has a beautiful rustic modern feel. Enjoy a cup of coffee next to the wood burning stove, watch a movie on the 50' TV, or adventure off to all of the outdoor activities this house and city has to offer!

    What guests are saying:

    “This location was special. We got a little lost finding it, but only because it is directly next to a look-out (makes sense when you think about the view!). We adored the record player and record choices, how cozy every room of the place felt, and the ease of finding places based on Matt’s tips! This is a gem of a spot worth enjoying. PS-Kitchen is pretty much locked and loaded except an oven which is alright because there’s a grill! But really, you don’t have to bring much. There are even spices and condiments to use! Thanks, Matt!”

    Rustic cabin in the woods

    Mid-island, this rustic cabin is perfect for any couple (or small group) shacking up in the woods. Features a full kitchen inside, outhouse, outdoor shower, fire pit, covered porch & access to pebble beach trails, making this a magical retreat.

    What guests are saying:

    “Such a magical place in the middle of the forest! The cabin is cozy and equipped with the basic and some more. The shower is a highlight with views into the woods! There is a hike that starts at the doorstep to the beach and a lovely cat to pet at night (if you want). We run into Jennifer and she was amazing, with great tips and even provided some grocery's we had forgotten (we came by bike, it's a long way to the grocery store:) 100% recommended, we didn't want to leave!”
