Welcome Beach – Konrad Cottages
Did you know that just 40 minutes by ferry from Vancouver you can step back in time to enjoy life at a slower pace on the Sunshine Coast?
The Sunshine Coast has long been a destination for cottagers, dating back to the turn of the century when the Union Steamships used to bring the wealthy ‘summer people’ up to the area, dropping them in Gibsons, Selma Park, Trail Bay, Halfmoon Bay and Pender Harbour. The tradition still exists, but these days its usually people traveling by car and looking to jettison their everyday cares for a while where life goes at a slower pace, nature is ever-present, and old-fashioned activities that promote adventurousness and togetherness dominate. Welcome to our world at Konrad Cottages in Halfmoon Bay!
Konrad Cottages offers one of the best cottage/vacation rental experiences in Coastal British Columbia. Located in Halfmoon Bay, in a neighbourhood referred to as Welcome Woods, our cottages are right on the water in one of the Coast’s most beautiful ocean bays – Welcome Beach.
Welcome Beach is one of the few truly sandy beaches on the Coast, and is one of the better-kept secrets too! Limited parking for day visitors and no major facilities means that crowds typically head to Davis Bay or Porpoise Bay Park. Meanwhile you wake up in your own beachfront cabin and step right onto the beach any time you like, with all of the amenities you need handy and close by.
You can walk the beach (it’s great for off-season stormwatching too), swim along the shore or out to the float, put in your kayaks or small rowboats, or just sit on the beach and soak up some sun and watch the marine traffic go by while birds like the red-beaked oystercatcher, blue heron or bald eagle hunt along the shore and shallows.
You can choose to stay either in the Cottage, a 2 bedroom bungalow with level beach access, or a 2 bedroom chalet nestled in a cedar grove, with a sunny spacious deck and views of the ocean. We hope to see you soon.
