About the property

West-Facing WATERFRONT in popular Davis Bay, 2 min outside Sechelt

Private waterfront with panoramic ocean views. Ocean view hot tub in amazing cedar pavilion over looking water. Large private suite deck and huge oceanfront deck. Central location. Short travel-time from Vancouver. Large, fully appointed, quiet, relaxing atmosphere.

Beachside by the Bay is a perfect choice for weary city folk in need of a restful retreat that’s quick to get to, offers fabulous waterfront views, and comfortable surroundings.

Located on the beach of Davis Bay, one of the Coast’s most popular beach communities. Beachside offers west facing beautiful ocean views and real sunsets, a true 'walkable' westcoast beach with logs/driftwood, night-time views of island lights, and a large forested property filled with birdsong and indigenous plants. Lounge on our private beach deck, have a barbecue, swim, kayak, stargaze, beachcomb or lower your stress with a quiet walk in the rain forest - its up to you!

GRANDE VISTA is a 1100 sq ft upper level open concept suite with vaulted ceilings, a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase sweeping ocean views, and a large wrap around ocean view deck with a barbecue, outdoor dining and lounging area. Take in the amazing views from your ultra-comfortable queen bed and listen to the waves. This suite is perfect for rest and relaxation. This unit is the entire upper floor of the main beach house.


The Sunshine Coast is not on Vancouver Island -- although you do catch a ferry from Horseshoe Bay. Ferry rates are 1/2 the price and it takes only 40 minutes to get to the Coast -- and you do not pay to take the ferry back to Vancouver!

On the Sunshine Coast, activities like golf, spa services and fishing trips can be a fraction of the cost of many popular resort areas. Plus there’s no exhausting long drives from the Vancouver area.

SPECIAL NOTES: Beachside by the Bay has its own private deck with lounging and eating areas. Shared amenities include a large beach deck and hot tub pavilion. This is a sloped property that requires average mobility. The Grande Vista suite is not a family or pet friendly unit. Beachside is a quiet, restful oasis, perfect for couples who need to rest and recharge.

About Ian Bolden

Born in BC and loves everything the Coast has to offer. Knowledgable about the area, local amenities and activities.

Ian Bolden purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Ian Bolden chose Davis Bay

What's not to love! Private woodland property sloped towards the beach in lovely Davis Bay. Smell the fragrance of the forest and ocean. Easy access to so many amenities - golf, groceries, diving, kayaking and more! So close to Vancouver, but yet so far away. You can extend your weekends by staying Sunday night -- catch the 06:20 a.m. ferry and be in downtown Vancouver easily by 8 a.m.

What makes this cottage unique

Location!! Walk or 3 min drive to all amenities. Only 20 mins from ferry! View decks at each unit and a large beachfront deck that can only be described as fabulous!. It's totally private and hosts the best sunsets on the Coast. Swim and barbecue at the beach, sip some wine and watch the waves. So much to look at ... the islands, boat, barge and cruise ship traffic, eagles, herons ... who knows what you'll see!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for welcoming us to your beautiful cottage. The views were second to none - to be surrounded by the ocean and so close to nature was a gift we will always remember. We admire you for creating this awesome oasis of peace and beauty in Sechelt.
