LUSH AND GREEN: feel yourself expanding to meet the embrace of nature in the mildest winter weather in Canada. Escape the snow and cold of a Canadian winter. This private refuge nurtures you with gifts from sea and sky and forest. Each window is like a picture, framing gifts of beauty on every side. Bright and unique, designed and crafted by the owners to welcome you and inspire a sense of what is possible. At night stars are bright. All is quiet. Sleep is deep and healing.
SEASIDE: Watch the dynamic action of waves on the shore, feel the cosy comfort of this special retreat.
ARTIST and WRITERS' HEAVEN: Home of an artist and a writer, designed by both, Serenity is well-suited to inspire and support other creative souls to express and explore the projects they may be incubating.
A REFUGE: 2-story cottage: the sea view haven chalet is nestled among trees on a rocky knoll, oriented to the light and warmth of the southern sky. Downstairs there is the kitchen and lounge with views to the ocean. Upstairs the bedroom is a cozy sanctuary inviting you to spend quiet time, reading or simply lying in in the morning. The bold use of beams throughout give a special sense of security and permanence. This is particularly so upstairs which has a high vaulted ceiling.
SLEEPS 1 - 4: waking in the morning is a delight. With the queen-size bed at window level, you can watch morning's first light flow over the ocean and island panorama--without even having to lift your head from the pillow! A double sofa bed is in lounge.
ARTWORK: Original artwork there is vibrant original artwork throughout. The artist, Shera Street, also has a studio gallery only a few steps away with an open invitation for guests to play.
DECKS: the lounge opens to a private deck and views of the ocean and islands beyond. On sunny days, enjoy the pleasure of lying out in our unique single-bar hammock. Upstairs a great hand-built door opens to a balcony deck at tree level. From this private aerie you can enjoy the view to the ocean through trees and the sounds of the creek garden below.
WOODSTOVE HEATER: on cool days relax in the warm glow of a glass-fronted wood-stove-style heater.
BACK CHAIR: lounge in the comfort of our special back chair, designed to melt away the stress carried by our backs. Never have I seen a chair prompt so many requests: "Where can I get one of these chairs!"
Sofa hide-a-bed: a double bed sofa offers extra sleeping if necessary.
KITCHENETTE: there is a fully-equipped kitchenette with a full fridge-freezer and 4-burner stove with oven in which you can prepare meals at your own convenience.
