Longhouse Bay Getaway is a rural waterfront property in the heart of Secret Cove, Halfmoon Bay. Located 20 minutes north of Sechelt in the Secret Cove district, Longhouse bay is rural yet close to many amenities. The property is unique in that we host a wetland and a wetland recovery area, forested acreage and open low and high bank waterfront. Tucked into a little cove we have named Longhouse Bay, we lay protected from the storms.

The little bay is a beautiful swim area in the summer and now hosts a dock and launch area. Most of our living area is located along the waterfront, with Willis taking great care with joining deck and boardwalks. A little BC history still remains and you can see the old boom anchors along the shoreline that take us back to an earlier era. This unique property has historical value of the post-depression era.

Our 1 bedroom carriage house was newly designed and built by Willis in 2010. An open floor plan, hard wood floors in the central living area and bur-bur carpets in the bedroom, natural wood pillars, hand crafted glass and fir doors with large sliding doors overlooking the waterfront.

The kitchen features espresso colored cabinets, sink with waterfront views, fridge, stove, microwave and dishwasher, fully stocked with all the pots, pans and dishes you will need for your visit.

A small work space for your computer tucks opposite into a bright alcove. Glass dining table seats 4 expanding into the living room, with leather sofa, loveseat, chairs, flat screen TV with IPAD hookup. The space is open and airy with vaulted ceilings and a large glass slider and Juliette balcony, with ocean and forest views. The master bedroom is large, with hand crafted pine bed and side tables, large mirrored closets, a comfi overstuffed ready chair, hand crafted blanket box, 2 piece separate bath and a glass and tile shower that makes a feature in the room.

You will find this one of the most striking waterfront views on the coast.

In all weather, you will enjoy the Longhouse, fdecorated in old comfy furniture that you can cuddle up in, lots of original art pieces and dining for 10.

This natural post and beam and glass area is outdoor living expanding into nature. Built by Willis 4 years ago, the trees came from our forest, we felled, hand peeled and timbered the posts, and milled some for the beautiful ceiling creating a warm and inviting entertainment area. The Longhouse is a peaceful and unique place to spend your time, close to the water and in local eagle nesting grounds, watching the sea life out front. This central gathering area joins the octagon deck with its massive outdoor fireplace, dining and lounge chairs, further to the left, the hot tub deck, more boardwalks, path leading to our waterfront patio with propane fire-pit, additional dining and lounge area

 All common area all that registered guests are able to enjoy.

 Kayak rentals, lots of local hiking trails and two beautiful waterfront restaurants are close by, or have a personal chef called in for a special evening.
Both entrepreneurs, Willis was a builder and Adele was a restauranteur, art gallery owner, and she is now both a human and Veterinary Homeopath.

We enjoy our lifestyle on the Sunshine Coast, a place we chose to live long ago and we enjoy sharing it with visitors today.

Cancellation Policy:

Our Cancellation Policy is 14 Days Advance Notice, so please call at least two weeks ahead of the date of your stay if you are unable to keep your reservation. A cancellation is disappointing for both the guests who have decided to cancel and for ourselves. More than likely, because we only have 2 homes to rent, we have turned away other guests who would have reserved for your dates. There is a $25 administration fee when cancelling, or for a reduction in nights booked, if 14-days notice is given. For less than 14-days, the charge is 50% of the booked rate; or the full amount for less than 48 hours notice. We recommend you consider traveler's insurance to protect your vacation.
