Centrally Located on British Columbia's Beautiful Sunshine Coast

Romantic Sechelt holiday home in West Sechelt with hot tub
STARFISH RETREAT SPRING/SUMMER 2020 Hello to all prospective Retreat guests. We’re writing this note to explain our approach to sanitation and virus protection, because it’s natural for people to be keenly interested during this fear-filled period. We want you to feel confident about your time with us this year. We are of the mind that common sense should prevail and if everyone acts responsibly, the Retreat suite can continue to operate safely. The suite is cleaned deeply after each client departure (not that it has been busy). The cleaning staff (often myself), meticulously disinfectant wipe all handles, door knobs, remote controls, and basically wipe down all furniture that you may come in contact with. We have always cleaned to a high standard and historically our guest reviews note how clean our Retreat is. Given the current circumstances, we are taking sincere and conscientious measures a step further with everyone’s health in mind. In addition, the retreat suite is totally separate from any physical or environmental contact with us. Separate stairs, separate entry, separate heat and air. If you are confident and comfortable in traveling to the Sunshine Coast this year to enjoy the many outdoor fresh air areas to explore, please be assured that the Starfish Retreat with its separation and cleanliness will be a safe and welcome escape. Stay healthy. We hope you can visit us this year. Yours Sincerely, Michele and Cam – Starfish Retreat hosts. COUPLES RETREAT (STARFISH RETREAT): Large West Coast vaulted ceiling suite.

Beautiful home, wonderful host
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - the property was beautiful, and the beds were extremely comfortable. Michele was a very responsive and understanding host. Thank you!!

4/5 Good

Incredible views!
We stayed for 5 nights at the property with beautiful weather. We very much enjoyed the large deck with big dining table overlooking the ocean. The unit is well furnished and very clean. The bathrooms are both very large and well equipped. Beds were very comfortable (even the pull out couch). The kitchen is very small (essentially fitted in a hallway) but manageable for a short stay. We had a couple of issues with the listing as we had asked to rent the whole suite (including the two back bedrooms) but when we arrived only one was made up as the owner assumed we would use the king sized bed that’s in the living room for 2 of us. Given the people in our group we wanted the other bedroom for more privacy. She was able to reluctantly accommodate us later that day. Advise that you clarify exactly the expectations of which part of the unit you would like to rent as there are several configurations. Additionally on the 4th day we asked where the washer and dryer were. These were listed as amenities in VRBO. We were informed that only for long stays can she try to arrange in advance with a tenant living above her garage to use her washer/dryer. We preferred not to use someone else’s laundry room during a pandemic so just washed some clothes by hand. There is no air conditioning, as advertised, either. I doubt that anyone would need it as there were fans, but it is worth mentioning if this is something that future guest would want. Overall though we had a wonderful stay and really enjoyed the suite and the region. We swam in front of the house a few times (rocky beach but lovely water).

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful getaway
We both fell in love with the Starfish Retreat on sight. The deck is perfect for relaxing in the sun with the most amazing view of the tranquil ocean and islands. The interior is lovely, the high ceilings make it feel really spacious and it's full of thoughtful and personal touches. Michele made sure the space was ready for us with the awning out and fresh milk waiting in the fridge. We loved having the beach just a flight of stairs away, and the hot tub on the deck below for the cooler evenings. The retreat is conveniently located close to town but feels very private. We also really appreciated the extra attention to cleaning at the current time. We had a wonderful and very relaxing few days and will be back for sure!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful and quiet with lots to do in the surrounding area. We sat on the deck with beautiful views of the ocean and beach. We hiked some of the local hiking trails. All in all soaked up beautiful BC.
