The space

Showers both have 2 shower heads. Great yard, with fruit trees. Beach is lovely for swimming, relaxing, shellfish harvesting, & exploring. Fire pit in the yard. Lots of places for kids to have fun. Hammocks on the deck.

Please note that the bunk beds in the master bedroom are smaller, built in bunks. Good for kids up to 8-10 years old. The lower one is almost a double wide. Could easily fit two smaller kids if they like to share.

Guest access

Share in the yard and house.

Interaction with guests

We can help you with local spots of interest and introduce ourselves - or we can check you in and disappear :)

The neighbourhood

Quiet neighbourhood, 20 minutes south of Powell River. Local swimming holes in the river, beautiful beach spots, and park (with playground) within walking distance. There is a convenience store/liquor store on the corner. 1 south of town restaurant (5 minute drive). Powell River has lots of lakes, bike trails, ocean kayaking, fishing, etc.

Getting around

Bus that goes to town Mon, Tue, Wed, Fri - 3 times a day (but ends at 3:30) so possible to be here without a vehicle but a bit tricky. Lots of room to park in driveway on in front of the house on the road.

Other things to note

There is another house on the property that is rented full time - very quiet couple with one 12 year old child and baby on the way. They have their own deck/outdoor area.

Daytime activity is absolutely fine. However our neighbour starts work in the very early morning (4am) so it is important that the evenings (after 9pm) are quiet. Thank you!

We enjoyed lighting the fire and relaxing in the eclectic variety of furniture! The beach was just a few minutes away and is beautiful. Thanks for letting us share your home :)

Funky, alternative style accomodation. Beds are futon style and a bit squeaky. Fridge was only partially available for use and owner's contents were totally unappetising. Great play areas inside and out for kids. Primary heat source is a large, unprotected wood heater located in a high traffic area....could be an issue with small children. Very quiet and beautiful location. Do need a car or bikes. Small convenience store near by and lovely beach just down the road. Lots of wildlife right outside your window.

Our stay was very nice. very quiet and cozy with everything we needed. loved having the ocean and park so close. About a 20 minute drive to Powell River which was what we expected. Thank you to Jamie and family for opening up your home to us while you were away we thoroughly enjoyed making your home our home away from home.

Family home. Easy going, helpful host. The advice to visit the nearby creek was spot on. Great fun. The local beach is also stunning. Very close to local grocer and liquor store.

This little gem of a home was lovely and creative. The nooks and crannies were a delight. We wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the fire pit and outdoor climbing gym.

This is a fantastic getaway for a family. House has lots of charm and the garden provides tons of fun for kids and adults (trampoline, hammocks, swings, sandbox, fire pit...). Jamie made us feel very welcome and had great ideas for things to do in the area.

Jamie's place is a wonderland... especially for the children, who had a blast exploring all of the bunkbed nooks and crannies of the house, plus the myriad swings in the yard, and the sandbox. Thanks so much!

We like to live simply and with passion & excitement for life. We have a home based business that allows us to spend time with our children. We like doing things with our hands (have rebuilt almost the whole house - lots of neat little customizations). Love to spend time outside with friends & family. Also love to surf!
