About Lynette and Ken Murray

We (Ken and Lynette) have lived in our original home here on the 1.25 acre property for almost 18 years. Our home is on the other end of the property to ensure your privacy and to be on hand if you need anythingKen is a 3rd generation horticulturalist with ties to the Sunshine Coast since childhood. His Father purchased a 40 acre tree farm here in Sechelt in 1974, which is now owned by The Sunshine Coast Botanical Society and is a 15 minute drive away. We decided to move our large house up to Sechelt from Richmond BC in 1997, so it was put on a barge and brought up here through the Skookumchuck Narrows, up to the beach here in Porpoise Bay. We decided to put the cottage on the upper half of our property in 2011, and now we would love to share this beautiful area for others to enjoy.

Lynette and Ken Murray purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Lynette and Ken Murray chose East Porpoise Bay

3 min. drive to the Village of Sechelt. We are right below The Coast Gravity Park,

Walking distance to Willow Point and 15-20 min walk to Porpoise Bay Park and Angus Creek....

A few places close to us where you can launch boats or Kayaks.

Launch small boats and canoes at Willow Point. Drive just around the corner, down Burnett dr. or walk the 3-4 mins. if it's a kayak or canoe.

It is calmest on our end of Porpoise Bay and up to Tuwanek beach just past the area of Tuwanek. This of course all depends on the winds. Sometimes this end of the inlet is like glass, especially early in the morning. You can also launch just before Tuwanek at Sandy Hook just a few k up our road (Sechelt Inlet Rd.). link with map.

I know people rent Kayaks from Tuwanek area or launch their own and paddle up to the many marine parks just before Salmon inlet. Here is another link to a boat launch, however they do have a charge to launch.,-

What makes this cottage unique

Close enough to all the events that Sechelt has to offer but far enough away to enjoy your privacy and nature. Very close to us, Porpoise Bay Provincial Park, Coast Gravity Park, Hidden Grove. There is also parking for up to 3 cars right in front of the cottage. We also have available parking for boat and/or trailer on the property. (extra fee depending on the size) Please see extra notes under pricing. ***please note VRBO quotes rates in American Dollars. Please change to Canadian Dollars under pricing. We will gladly send you a quote in Canadian with taxes and fees.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Since listing here on VRBO just this last March we have had a great response to our listing. I am very happy with VRBO. I also would like to say how wonderful our guests have been. Everyone has been so respectful of our Cottage and has left it so nice and clean. We have had a few doggie family members stay with no problems. Thank you to all our guests for getting us off to a great start!

Lynette and Ken,

Warm and cozy. The house owner is really kind.

  • 5 of 5

It is a excellent place if you want to have a comfortable vacation in Sunshine Coast. It is close to the sea and has a big yard for your pets. The house has everything, anything you need in a kitchen, washroom or bedroom. You can also enjoy plenty of books, CDs and DVDs in the house.

Owner's Response: We really appreciate you taking the time to write such a nice review. I'm am so glad you had a nice stay. We do try to keep as many things that guests may need or enjoy like the items mentioned as well as board games and a few toys for little ones. We welcome dogs of all sizes and glad yours enjoyed the cottage and area. We do have a nice yard for dogs, however I would like to point out to future guests that it is not fenced in. The deck is however totally enclosed to keep in most dogs. The short walk to the beach is convenient as well as the short drive to the Village of Sechelt. Thank You, Lynette and Ken Murray

Very clean, very quiet

  • 4 of 5

Great location just minutes away from Sechelt. More than enough room for the 5 of us. the only thing was the lack of non stick pans and basic cooking essentials I.e. cooking oil, sugar ...

All in all a very pleasant experience

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry you were unable to locate the 2 nonstick frying pans, as they were put in a different location than the other pots and pans. We do try to provide as kitchen supplies as possible. We keep small amounts of sugar packets/coffee to get you started for weekly rentals or enough for 2 day stays. For cooking, guests usually provide their own food items, oil, butter, margarine etc. We do encourage guests to text or call our #'s provided if you need anything during your stay. We are happy you liked that the cottage was close to town and easy to access other interesting locations of the coast. Thank you for your review, we hope to see you back in the future.

Great location for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was exactly as described and we had no problems at all. The close proximity to the beach as well as the town were added features. If we return to the area in the future we will definitely want to stay here again.

Home Away from Home

  • 4 of 5

A cozy retreat nestled in a forested corner within minutes of beaches, a waterfall. As a family of three adults and three teenage boys, the cottage provided the necessities (WIFI!!) we needed. We appreciated the availability of a washer and dryer, and the use of the BBQ. We found the location somewhat noisy as there is a lot of development and both commercial and residential traffic. Knowing this we were not overly bothered by it coming from a city!
