Secret Cove Bird's Nest is perched above one of the most spectacular inlets on the Sunshine Coast. Our open design living area with large windows. Very quiet and tranquil paradise!

The space

Bird's nest is an ideal setting for a romantic retreat or we can accomodate up to six guests. Our house is newly renovated with all the comforts of home. Open design living area with large windows to enjoy the view the oceanfront view. If you are a nature enthusiast who loves exploring ocean inlets, bird watching, and hiking, or biking through trails in the woods, then this delightful home in Secret Cove will be perfect for you!

Guest access

This is an excellent boating area. You will have access to our dock. If you arrive by water, we have a 30 foot slip for landing your pleasure craft. If you bring your own kayaks or boat, there is room here to tie up to the dock, or store on the dock while you are guests here. The fishing here is one of the best areas of the Sunshine Coast for salmon and ling cod. There are also many islands to explore; Thormandby with lovely white sand beaches, Jedediah Island, Lasquiti Island to only name a few.

Interaction with guests

We live in a separate house on a large piece of property; which makes it helpful to facilitate our guests needs, but also very important for us to give you privacy.

Other things to note

If you would like to explore Thormandby Island, there is a water taxi available close by to get you there! It is so beautiful there with white sand beaches. Great place to play some frisbee or boche.
We also have a hot tub that can comfortable seat four people; and a solar shower set up in the summer months.

Laurie and Trevor were amazing hosts! This place was everything we had hoped for and more! A real gem! The house is set in a beautiful scenic neighbourhood, clean with all amenities and truly a home away from home! Will definitely be planning our next trip real soon!

We returned for our 2nd visit this year but brought a bigger group this time. As expected the house was perfect for 4 adults and 2 young ones. We even had our parents join us for meals since they were heading north in their boat. Thanks so much for the great hospitality. We will be back in the near future.

This place is magical! A true lovely nest in the sky. The house is gorgeous and comfortable and Laurie is a wonderful host. Perfectly comfortable for 6 people (although not in the hot tub :).

Laurie was an amazing host. We had complete privacy but she was quick to answer any questions we had. Her place is perfect for a romantic weekend or a family get together since it sleeps at least 6. We like to cook and we had everything we could ask for. Having had great weather we could even BBQ. The location is amazing, ocean view, lots of nature and a short walk down to the private dock. The place is clean, well laid out and super cozy with the fireplace and hot tub. Thank you Laurie for making our1 mini vacation a dream.

My girlfriend and I had a perfect 2-night stay at Laurie's Birds Nest in Feb 2015. House is beautiful and in an amazing setting. Everything is thought of and provided. Fire lighting. Hot tub warm. Great place to either the Coast if the weather is fine or hunker down and watch the rain on the cove if it's not. Fits 6 but works for a getaway as a couple as well. Thanks Laurie. I suspect we'll be back.

I love to travel, and really enjoy meeting new people.
I really enjoyed going to Thailand, Australia, and New Zealand.
My passion is to create beautiful spaces, garden, biking, hiking,
Creating stained glass pieces for outdoor use.
I love the ocean; boating, kayaking, swimming,
or just exploring on my paddle board.
My motto is to treat people how you would like to be
treated; so I go the extra mile to make people comfortable,
and invest in their holiday. If you have any desires to go hiking,
or kayaking while you are here; I would be happy to give you some
ideas and phone numbers to make that possible!
