On British Columbia's Sunshine Coast, there are a handful of small communities -- lined with trees, surrounded by water -- that look straight out of a postcard. One such community is Garden Bay, and a property that's currently on the market there may make you want to relocate.
Garden Bay is a small village that's part of the larger Pender Harbour region, along with Madeira Park and Kleindale. Following the Sunshine Coast Highway, also known as Highway 101, Pender Harbour is located about a 30-minute drive north from Sechelt, and just west of Spipiyus Provincial Park.
The property itself sits at 13009 Oyster Bay Road, along the coast of Gunboat Bay, only a two-minute walk from Garden Bay Marine Provincial Park.
Currently on the market for $2,850,000, the home was originally built in 2000, and provides two bedrooms and two bedrooms across 2,198 sq. ft of living space on a 45,302 sq. ft lot.
The waterfront property and its 370 feet of shoreline provide an abundance of sightlines across Gunboat Bay, and of Mount Daniel, but is also dotted with clusters of trees to provide shade and privacy.
Inside, the home is made up of plenty of wood, including the door, window frames, and vaulted ceilings. Meanwhile, the abundance of windows means you can enjoy the panoramic views from indoors, too.

A gorgeous floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace serves as the centerpiece of the main living area, which also leads directly to the large balcony. Here again, you can enjoy the beautiful views.
The kitchen is circular, with a sprawling continuous marble-stone countertop, and it's equipped with well-crafted and built-in wooden cabinetry, along with professional-grade stainless steel appliances.
Our Favourite Thing
When a property has a 370-ft shoreline, there's very little that can measure up to it. (Literally.) Because this address sits on a parcel of property that physically sticks out a bit from the rest of the land, the lisiting's shorelines provide almost 270 degrees of views, which can be enjoyed from a variety of nooks, heights, and angles. No two views will be the same.
Elsewhere around the house you'll find sizeable bedrooms, many of which continue the use of wood, expansive windows, and a 'tropical island' kind of atmosphere.
Also very notable is the main bathroom, where the shower is encased in a thick glass wall reminiscent of ice cubes, and the sprawling countertop travels the entire length of the bathroom.
All in all, the property gives you everything you'd want in a home on the Sunshine Coast: the water, the trees, the peace, the quiet, and of course, the view. What more do you need?
