A group of 14 of us rented both the deluxe suite and beach cottage properties for the long weekend last month. Booking the place and planning for the trip was super easy. Chris was very good at replying emails and returning calls before we checked in. The deluxe suite offered a spacious living room that could allow all 14 of us to eat together in the same area. The kitchen in the deluxe suite was also fully equipped so that we could conveniently cook all of our meals. We were definitely impressed by how spacious the deluxe suite was. Both properties were literally just several feet away from the beach and water. It was some of the most beautiful sights we had ever experienced.

Our only concerns were some spider webs around the ceiling in the deluxe suite, a BBQ that wouldn't light up (there was another BBQ at the beach cottage that did work), and a strong "natural plant-like" smell coming from outside..

All in all, I would definitely recommend Halfmoon Haven to my friends and will return if we ever get to visit Halfmoon Bay again. Thank you Chris and Jenn!

“Pure bliss”
Reviewed 22 February 2013 for a stay in May 2011

Halfmoom Haven is a true GEM of the West Coast! My personal experiences at Halfmoon Haven can be described as tranquility, awakening, relaxing and spiritual. The events and entertainment are world class and intimate which you can rarely find these days. You are one with nature at Halfmoon Haven, as the Pacific ocean dances with the shores of the property and the eagles soar from above. Grandfather tree is always willing to give some time with a view; as you walk between the yurt and the main house ♥ Pure bliss ♥

I stayed at Halfmoon Haven number of times, and i keep coming back for its combination of nature, peace, beauty, relaxation and hospitality. It is for sure one of my favorite places to go back to. The owners are also one of the nicest people you will ever meet.

I agree with you fully, the wildlife and nature in this bay never ceases to amaze us. We have seen, grey whales spouting in our bay, dolphins, orca whales, seals, eagle, otters, salmon, deer, loons, blue herons, and we even have two resident eagles. At the same time the peacefullness is always present.

“A piece of heaven on earth”
Reviewed 10 February 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Halfmoon Haven is one of the most beautiful places on the Sunshine Coast. The sunsets are mind-blowing, the jacuzzi overlooking the ocean makes them even better! The suites are luxurious but homey, you feel settled in as soon as you arrive. The beach has a magnetic presence that is naturally healing, and the bay makes it a great place to strike out by kayak or canoe to explore the coast. Whether you are an individual, couple or a family, Halfmoon Haven will offer you the experience you are looking for - know, because I have been there for all of the above purposes!

Another tip for morning coffee lovers is 5 minutes down the road we have the Halfmoon Bay General Store which has fresh coffee, deli, bakery, gourmet pizza, groceries, and a cold beer and wine store.

“Beauty + Spirit + Luxery = Halfmoon Haven”
Reviewed 22 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Its a simple equation really. You walkin and see a wonderfully crafted stone fireplace seperating the two common areas with slidng window doors enticing you to get on the balcony. From here you have an epic view. Your eyes are drawn to the mountains accross the shimmering water, the closer to the beach just beyond the flourishing landscape below you and you glance to your let and see a hottub with your name all over it!
\You then jump into your swim trunks and on the way outside and down the stairs on the left of the cottage, you are blessed to be greeted by a PLUS 500 year old tree that lightly bleeds drops of sap which you are enticed to dab your fingure on and taste. It has this unique peppertmintish - vixck vapo-rub taste and is medicinal in an extremelty positive way (taste wise and energy wise). Its a if the wisdom of the tree has become a part of you on some level.

This buzz from the sap has you float down the stairs and soak in a hot tub which looks at the same view as the pattio, but from a completely different light, with a different angle and perspective.

IT is IMPECABLE! The Lomi Lomi masssage for me was an experience of existing as a bulb o light.... one of my colleauges from Vancouver Film School went thousand of years into the universe, while the other when deep into the universe inside himself.

HIGHLY Recommend experiences the love and beauty at halfmoon haven. I went with sic others and every single person said they will defintiely be back. WE will probably have our grad party there too!

“A bit of paradise”
Reviewed 3 May 2012 for a stay in April 2012

I was recently at a beautiful vacation rental on the Sunshine Coast, B.C. It is called Halfmoon Haven and is a haven for anyone who needs to be restored, healed and inspired. The setting is so beautiful it takes your breath away. It is located on Welcome Beach, the best beach on the Sunshine Coast. The owners, Chris and Jenn Fletcher were very welcoming and gave us a tour of the property. There is a lovely cottage on the beach and another rental up at the top of the large lot. We were given a delightful breakfast basket, complete with bread, homemade jam, coffee, fruit and fresh market eggs. As we were enjoying the hot tub eagles were circling above us. I saw Orca whales in the bay and another woman said she had just seen dolphins and sea lions the week before. There is also a large yurt for rent for groups and I am thinking of taking my women’s group there. We went on some hikes nearby, such as to Smuggler’s Cove where the beavers are building their dams. Jenn is a massage therapist and trained in Hawaii in lomi lomi massage. It was such a healing experience to have a massage from her in her lovely studio. This is on the top of my list for a beautiful vacation experience. I can highly recommend it.

Did you also know that Welcome Beach is considered by most locals to be the best beach on the Sunshine Coast, as well as having 7-14 more days of Sunshine then Hawaii, due our our micro climate. It is also a great spot to see Grey Whales in the summer time.
