Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a great time at your B&B Fiona and Caroline. Thanks for accommodating my daughter and friend with the extra beds. We enjoyed ourselves and want to come back next summer.

Caroline and I have lived in and around Vancouver for over 27 years, both having come from Quebec and Albert before that. We both speak English and French. We live with our youngest son, aged 17, our two dogs and a cat. We love to meet new people and share our piece of the coast with them.

Fiona Graham purchased this house in 2005

We moved to the Sunshine Coast 9 years ago after falling in love with it on our own vacation visits here. We love all the animal life, the tranquility and the friendliness of the place. Everything you need is here and there is so much to do; indoors and out. We have 2 beaches that are just minutes away from our house that we love to go and walk along rain or shine. There are many parks near by where we can hike or go bike riding or walk our dogs.

We live across the street from a small park, so there are trees, deer and birds every where. At night it is so dark and peaceful you can see thousands of stars in the sky and listen to the crickets and frogs while you sit on the deck.

Feeling at home...

  • 5 of 5
We spent a busy weekend on the Sunshine Coast and were more than happy to find this gem. No surprises with the property. Clean, cozy, quiet, and convenient. Secret beach is in easy walking distance and the property is located steps to transit. A really lovely alternative to expensive hotels/motels as you feel that you have a private space with the conveniences of home. The owners were accommodating and a good resource for information about the area. Good restaurants, for example. We would definitely consider staying here again , as we plan to continue to explore such a serene area of BC, and will be recommending the property to friends and family. .

Owner's Response: Glad you had such a wonderful stay and enjoyed the Mexican restaurant I suggested! You'll need to make it longer next time so you can enjoy more of the coast.

Great place for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, toddler and I stayed here for our first trip to the Sunshine Coast. The unit is exactly as described, and matches the pictures perfectly. It was immaculate and a good size for our family, and very quiet overall. The perfect place for a getaway.

We spent some time chatting with Fiona our first night there, and she was a wonderful host. (Even offering us her hose and a rag when she noticed that we had previously parked our car under a flock of seagulls!) She gave us great tips about the area, including the wildlife that regularly visit the neighbourhood. Fiona was right - toddler was utterly thrilled to see a young deer pass by right in front of the living room the next morning.

We enjoyed the collection of DVDs and got a kick out of watching "Blades of Glory" in the evening.

The soaps in the bathroom are homemade soaps from their soap-making business. We happily purchased some additional to give to friends as gifts. The soaps were a very nice, personal touch for a great property; we'll gladly stay here again.

Great unit in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the unit for BC Day weekend and were quite happy with it. It's exactly as pictured - immaculate, cozy and comfortable. The gardens are great; we were happy to watch a young deer meandering by the window. Great selection of movies - we got a kick out of good ole' "Blades of Glory." Fiona was really sweet, and even offered us her hose and a rag when she noticed that we'd previously parked directly under a flock of seagulls.

The all-natural soaps provided in the bathroom are homemade from their soap-making business, such a lovely and personalized touch! We ended up buying quite a few additional to bring home to friends. We would be happy to stay here again the next time we are back in Gibsons.

Wonderful weekend stay

  • 5 of 5
The house was exactly what we were hoping for; great location, comfortable and clean space. The hosts were lovely and welcomed us when we arrived. We spent the weekend mountain biking in the Roberts Creek area and the house was a great place to come back to in the evening. We will be staying at this property again in the future.

Personal touch!

My family and I stayed for a period of 2 weeks. Fiona and Caroline were not only accommodating but also incredibly welcoming and generous during our visit. The rooms were large and comfortable. We also enjoyed eating outside in the large front garden.

'Located at the south end of the Sunshine Coast, just north of Vancouver, Gibsons (population: 4,182) is a quaint town of artists and fishing boats. It's famously known as the location for the longtime hit TV show The Beachcombers, which first aired in 1972 and ran until 1990.

It attracts visitors with its chilled-out blend of water and land activities, suitable for all ages and ability levels. Go kayaking, canoeing, or fishing. Enjoy hiking in the Sunshine Coast's regional and provincial parks, or play golf. Relax while visiting farmers markets, dining at diverse restaurants, browsing through museums and art galleries, or checking out local festivals and events.'

Everything is so close that it is possible to do many things in one day. We personally love to hike on the beach and in the various local woods with our dogs. During the winter Dakota ridge is a winter wonderland and great place to ski and snow shoe . We also sell our hand made all natural soaps in the many local markets that are held year round. Want to buy something local? Just let us know what and we can find it for you.
