Four-legged Guests

All our self-catering accommodations AerieAnnex and  Studio ISO are also pet- friendly. Pets are also welcome if you are renting the whole Pointhouse for a memorable vacation and want to include Fido. Four-legged guests will enjoy walks to the beach on/below the property or over to Sargeant Bay Park. Longer nature trails loop through the forest in the upland portion of the park.

The Annex has a fenced backyard and deck. Aerie and Studio ISO have private patios and courtyards.

We’re happy to supply some pet friendly towels for drying off after walks and hikes and plastic baggies for scooping and disposal in garbage bins.

Pet Policy

When to Visit

Sargeant Bay is situated in a temperate coastal rainforest with a mild climate. Typically hot, dry summers and wet, rainy winters. The Storm watching season runs from November through March. Sunrises are also spectacular at this time of year and you don’t need to get up too early to enjoy them.

Though usually short-lived, snow is a possibility when the thermometer dips. That’s good news for Dakota Ridge, a high sub-alpine plateau mid-coast popular for winter recreation but not great for getting around at lower elevations.

Dressing in layers with today’s technical fabrics or natural fibres will keep you comfortable from sea level to the mountain tops.

Getting Around

Highway 101 meanders 180 km (110 mi) along the Salish Sea to link all the communities of Upper and Lower Sunshine Coast from Langdale in Howe Sound to Lund, the end of the road (literally!) and the jumping off point for Desolation Sound. Pointhouse Suites are ideally situated mid coast so you can check out local attractions north and south in easy day trips. Sargeant Bay Provincial Park is literally next door.

To venture outside of our local Welcome Woods, Halfmoon Bay neighbourhood, getting around is most convenient by car. Bring your own, share or hire one from Prime Rentals or Turo, a car sharing platform similar to AirBnB. Facilities available at the Pointhouse Suites for complimentary EV charging. Fast chargers available in several locations on the coast.

Pedal power is another option. Recharge your batteries (or your e-bike’s) or take a break with BC Transit, shuttles, taxi or our new ride hailing service Coastal Rides to get you where you need to go. It’s best to get in the flow, take it slow, and enjoy the area’s local colour including year round outdoor recreation, festivals, great waterfront dining, music and unique art.

Local groups are working on more active transportation options for both residents and tourists alike to support a healthier, more sustainable destination. Bike friendly amenities, trail improvements, highway shoulder widening, cycle routes, e-bike initiative by Sunshine Coast Tourism are some of the ongoing projects to address some of the challenges to getting around safely by bicycle. Bike helmets are mandatory everywhere in BC.

First Nations

Welcome to the traditional territories of the Squamish (skwxwú7mesh), Sechelt (shíshálh), and Tla’amin and Klahoose nations. Indigenous peoples have been on this land since time immemorial. Part of the larger Coast Salish people, they engaged in fishing, hunting, and trade, and were noted for their totem poles, cedar canoes, and unique language.

Today, the Coast Salish people continue to contribute culturally and economically to the Sunshine Coast.  From artist demonstrations to education about the ecosystems, the Indigenous communities of the Sunshine Coast are ready to share their abundance of history and rich culture.

Sargeant Bay

Sargeant Bay offers remarkable diversity and habitat for nature appreciation, recreation, and conservation, which is why a significant portion is protected as a Provincial Park.

Winter storms from Georgia Strait bring logs and driftwood ashore, making Sargeant Bay a beachcomber’s dream. The gentle slope of the sand and shingle beach also makes it ideal for swimming or paddling on a warm day. As an overnight anchorage it is fine in a northwesterly but not the place to be with winds from other directions. Holding good in sand and mud.

A unique feature of the park is the barrier berm, a natural walking trail and an accessible place to observe the park’s abundant flora and fauna. The berm’s dry salty environment supports unique plants. Enclosed by the barrier berm is Colvin Lake, a wetland habitat for waterfowl, songbirds, raptors, salmonoids, river otter and beaver. A fish ladder aids the return of spawning fish to the creek above the lake.

Upland from the beach and berm is Triangle Lake, a true bog that receives it’s water from rain only. Sphagnum moss, bog cranberry, bog laurel, labrador tea and insect eating sundew are some of the plants that grow in this part of the park.

Trails abound in the forested portion of the park. Moss covered maples, massive Douglas fir, as well as patches of shore pine and arbutus trees support deer, black bear, red-tailed hawks and barred owls to name a few of the animals that make their homes here.


We offer many different packages and enhancements for your stay.
