The space

A warm welcome to my slice of paradise in Halfmoon Bay. Make yourselves at home...I hope you enjoy your stay either having fun exploring the Sunshine Coast or bunkering down on the deck it's a drink and book. Either way you'll have a wonderful and relaxing visit connecting with nature and a simpler lifestyle.
The property is located on a quiet road in a friendly neighbourhood, walking distance to beaches, hiking and riding trails. It's also walking distance to the historic Halfmoon Bay General Store, offering movie rentals, food, ice, lotto and liquor. The cafe next to it has snacks and ice cream :)
The property is minutes away to launch your SUP/kayak or boat!
Paddle to the popular sandy beaches of Thormanby Island, Smuggler Cove, Frenchmans Cove and Square Bay...you may even spot a pod of Orcas in the Strait!
It's a lovely 15-minute coastline drive to the Village of Madeira Park or Sechelt, offering many amenities.
The home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Upstairs you'll find two bedrooms and a large bathroom with jetted tub and separate shower. The smaller bedroom has a double size bed with large closet. If you have children, you'll find a small TV/VCR combo in the closet along with a box of children's movies. Feel free to take it out and place on the desk for use.
The master bedroom has a king size bed, w/i closet and a deck. Sit and relax as you enjoy the morning sun with coffee in hand. It's a good spot to star gaze at night too - glass of wine optional ;) The second bathroom and third bedroom is on the main level, offering a queen size bed.
The kitchen is fitted with S/S appliances and a gas range. The kitchen is outfitted with all the tools you'll need to prepare an amazing meal. The BBQ is on the deck along with deck furniture to enjoy eating your meals outside. There is an outdoor fireplace on the deck too, as well as a fire pit adjacent to the house, should you feel like roasting marshmallows over an open bonfire.

Huge house! Just up the street from the ocean. Massive chefs kitchen with literally EVERY utensil or dish you would ever need. Very unique, funky decorations and a beautiful, large master bedroom. Large wraparound deck with big bbq made for great nights outdoors enjoying the quiet tranquility of the Sunshine Coast. Driveway is super steep, if you're older, may be a concern. Perfect for my family vacation though, thanks again Bernadette!

My 6 yr daughter and I had a lovely time on the coast. The weather was outstanding and our accommodations were very lovely and comfortable especially the king size bed! I would highly recommend Bernadette's cozy hideaway. Close to beaches and town. Great location.

Lovely house in a good location. We had a great time and Bernadette was a good and responsive host. We had a slight issue with the check in being pushed back to quite late due to other guests being allowed to check out late, but other then that the place was perfect. The kitchen has everything you could need to cook, the rooms are comfortable, the place was clean and the deck was perfect to enjoy meals or sit around and relax on in the evening. Thank you for sharing your home with us Bernadette!

Bernadette's home is beautiful. Fantastic location with easy access to halfmoon bay and the surrounding areas. Very clean and incredibly well equipped kitchen! Bernadette was very helpful in advising us on the local attractions and answering any queries we had both during our stay and in the lead up. Would definitely recommend for groups or families. Thank you Bernadette for a great few days! Lucy and friends

Bernadette was a fantastic host and her home was lovely. It was our first trip to the Sunshine Coast and it didn't disappoint. A great location and close to the Sechelt. Lots of options for hikes in the area and Bernadette was very helpful with where to buy local seafood and suggested activities!

Bernadette's pace was great, exactly as described, big house, everything nicely set up and laid out. We enjoyed using the fire pit and the outside areas very much. We had a slight mix up around arrival - having fixed a time Bernadette needed to change it but because we were on the road and only had SMS access did't get the message (as luck would have it airbnb picked that day to switch off sms messages!). But we were able to contact Bernadette after we arrived and all was sorted out speedily. Areais a great. Beautiful coast, lovely lakes for swimming and terrific hikes. We also had a good kayak trip on Sechelt inlet. Rapids fantastic (thats not where we went in the kayaks!)

Bernadette was most a most gracious and generous host. We arrived with our daughter, son-in-law and a 1 year old grandchild and she was very accommodating with our check in time. She made certain she was reachable throughout the day and was keen to find out if we had any questions or concerns. The accommodations were lovely - exactly as described on the website. There were lots of board games which my family enjoyed - as well as jigsaw puzzles. I completed my first in over 35 years on this stay.
