About our home

We live in a cozy log home, surrounded by perennial gardens to relax in. Our suite is on the ground floor of the house and my husband and I live upstairs. You will have 2 bedrooms, a luxurious newly renovated bathroom with a claw foot bathtub and a shower with both rain head and handheld options. Our downstairs kitchen has 3 induction cooktops, a microwave, an extra-large convection toaster oven, a fridge, kettle, and French press. There is a gas fireplace, which keeps you nice and cosy. Jennie loves her extensive perennial garden. We live in the small town called Sechelt, on the Sunshine Coast of BC, Canada. This area hardly gets any snow in the winter, is more of a "laid back" place, and is quite friendly, nature loving and artsy. It gets much busier in the summer months with the ocean, inlet and lakes, but we like it all year. You can always hike, mountain bike and kayak. Pool and gym are a 5 minute walk away, as is the library and downtown.

Where is it?


Sechelt is an ocean side city of 10 000, with water on 2 sides. It is very friendly and part of the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia.

Buzzy restaurants
Lots of great restaurants to choose from( Indian, Italian, Greek, Chinese, Japanese) but everything closes around 9pm, so late dinners are best at home.
Cool bars
The lighthouse pub is our favourite and we have a new brewery and a cidery.
Cozy cafés
Lots to choose from. My favourite is the Lone Wolf bakery, a sourdough bakery.
Retail therapy
Some great second hand shops and also dress, sport, book and shoe stores.
Bit of culture
We have a First Nation museum and an art gallery.
Walks in the park
Lots of places to walk and hike.
Spot of exercise
Ocean sports such as boating and swimming, with bicycle, kayak and paddle board rentals. Great mountain bike trails. Hiking trails too! Cross country ski area in the winter.
Day tripping
Vancouver can easily be reached by public transportation or sea plane. A sea plane to Victoria, on Vancouver Island, is also fun.
