    Good Host
  • Description


    Nestled on the sandy waterfront of the Sechelt Inlet, just a 40 minute ferry ride away from Vancouver, we have an acre property full of lavender, fruit trees, kiwi vines and grape vines. With a large dock, boats and decks this makes for a great summer retreat.

    We have a relaxed family lifestyle, where our evenings are spent relaxing on the decks by the water and our days alternate form working in Vancouver to working from home. We have a large house with a gourmet kitchen and plenty of room for guests as well as a large office/studio space in an independent building.

    A beach side out building is a welcome 'camping' place for sleeping almost on the water.

    Deer roam the property ( trimming our plants) and the occasional whales, seals, sealions and dolphins can be seen right in front of the house.

    Our garden is extensive and being a very warm temperate zone needing a lot of attention.
    We welcome help to keep the jungle back!
