Gorgeous post and beam 3 bedroom home perfectly located for lake & ocean access
About Tamara Litke
This is our future home that we share with others. We appreciate nature and the ability to be in a natural setting with the comforts of home. We've lived on the west coast for 3 decades and this is our sweet spot on the planet. We work in the environmental field and this is the best of BC.
Tamara Litke purchased this House in 2008
Why Tamara Litke chose Garden Bay
We looked for years throughout BC and loved the unique triangle with 1300 feet of lakefront as well as the conduit linking the lake to the ocean. There's a nearby recreational area great for kids and 5 local freshwater swimming lakes. There is abundant wildlife (many birds as well as some elk and deer). Tree frogs sing and we can hear owls and coyotes at night sometimes. It feels far away, yet all the city amenities are close by if needed - the best of both worlds.

We had a fabulous family Thanksgiving weekend.
Great location and lovely accommodation.
Quiet Forest Getaway
Our two families had a lovely relaxing time. The cabin is beautiful. Maybe not the best place for a small child, but thankfully neither of our babies could move around on their own yet. We really enjoyed the quiet, serene setting and all the ceramics.
Was a very pleasant stay, perfect for what we needed for a weekend of celebrating my brother in laws birthday at the Golf Club. A quiet respite from the chaos.
A couple of extra blankets in the closet would be a good a idea and a corkscrew. Overall, 5 out of 5, Oh and sorry about the balloons. We could not not get them down. The helium will have to drain for them to come down. Thanks again.
Thanks for making the beds - we could hardly tell if they were used!
Can you believe the balloons are still on the ceiling 3 weeks later? Eventually, they'll descend I'm sure. But a conversation starter forsure.
As you know, we have a well stocked kitchen in our home. Unfortunately, one of our guests must have inadvertently taken the wine openers. We used to have 2 - one was a general one, and sadly, a professional silver waiters opener has gone missing. If you looked through the drawers, I'm sure you realized that there must have been one. The marina 5 minutes down the road has a liquor store and gift shop so next time message us and we can send you in the right direction.
Every bedroom has a duvet, thermostat and at least 1 extra blanket. We were just up and counted 6 extras for 4 beds plus sleeping bags, so please feel free to message your host if you can't find what you're looking for. I remember you had extra guests so maybe they were all in use. We'll set them in view for winter.
Thanks for staying with us, we were happy to accommodate your families for your special occasion on the beautiful Sunshine Coast.
Secluded getaway with a beautiful lake near by
Great spot up a secluded drive way, nestled in the woods. Access to the lake is at the bottom of the drive way and has steps to access the water. Great for swimming! Not ideal to lounge there all day as there's no beach and is beside the road, but there's a dock about a 5 min drive further. The cabin was lovely and clean and had everything we needed. The back patio has a steep rock area that isn't ideal for small kids so we set up our chairs in front of it to keep the baby away and it was fine. Thanks so much Steve and Tamara! We had an unreal 3 days there.
A very nicely built log framed home. Well equipped with all the necessary amenities for both a short and long term stays. It wasn't as close to the ocean as we originally pictured. Communication was great. Our family enjoyed the stay.
Five of us and our cat and dog were very enjoying the week long staying. Tamara who is a wonderful host. We left behind some things she's very helpful to retrieved for us. The cabin while you walk in you can smell the wood and feel so calm and relax. The cabin itself sets along which is you own the natural just for you. Highly recommend !!!
We are walking distance to the ocean with a few eateries, groceries and a liquor store that has ice cream and great sunsets. We are a 15 minute drive away from a town that sells most supplies including a large grocery store. liquor store and general shops including a great bookstore. We are 30 minutes driving distance from a larger community that has much more shopping and a wonderful farmers market in summer. You can park for a week and only walk to several local amazing hikes.
