The house is a spacious 5 bedroom chalet style home with huge wrap-around sundecks overlooking our private yard, gardens and forest wilderness ravine.

My name is Glen and I am a 58 year old bachelor. I was born just outside of Winnipeg to a military family. I moved to Vancouver in 1972 and worked as a carpenter/contractor and ran a successful business for 15 years. This is a whole new life for my dog Sheba and I .I have wanted to live here on the Sunshine Coast for the last 30 years. Here I am now living the dream.

Glen Nikkel purchased this chalet in 2012

I chose this property because there is so much room. We can accommodate large gatherings. The home has a very warm feeling inside with 25 ft. high ceilings finished in pine. The open concept, huge windows and all the native art give it west coast character. I have travelled all over the world and I have learned the best holiday in the ones with the lest amount of travel to be the most relaxing . A short drive. A 40 minute ferry ride. Puts you in one of the most beautiful parts of the world.

Native art decorates every wall. There are many beautiful and original pieces. The old growth trees are massive. The 2 acre ravine is a nature paradise/rain forest. Pet friendly to well behaved K9s. Motorcycle rider’s paradise with winding roads along the ocean and old growth forests.To make your holiday more enjoyable, we have tried to think of everything and include it in a binder.

Watch for it on the coffee table. It is easy reading and should answer all your questions. It covers the jet tub, fireplace, phone, laundry facilities, board games, TV Channels, phone numbers, and more.

It is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the “How To’s” of the house when you arrive.

There is 1 RV site with power and water.

Absolutely Wonderful Venue

We had a three couples stay here to attend a wedding in Gibsons and we enjoyed our stay. The house is in great shape with tons of room and the yard is unbelievable.

I would go back in a heartbeat

  • 5 of 5
Loved it.
There were five of us, we each had a bedroom and we could have fit a few more people in.
Large yard,close to pretty much anything you would want to do.
Glen and Todd were extremely welcoming and tended to any questions I had.
The house has a large deck ( we had about 25 people on it and still had lots of room ).
No noisy neighbours,although we made some.
Great relatively secluded location, I absolutely loved it and will be back.

Beautiful property; excellent landlord

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful stay!! Thank you so much for everything! The property is beautiful, the landlord was so friendly and accommodating. Glen was really quick if we needed his help with anything. There was plenty of room for our large family. Lots to do and places to explore. I LOVED the artwork on display throughout the house! So beautiful! In fact, I still have my heart set on one of the beautiful wooden boxes. There was something new to see everyday on this property. Definitely check out the outlying towns during your stay. Many and varied attractions, and we loved the outdoor markets. Thanks for everything!

Amazing Patio

  • 5 of 5
We had a great weekend at the house - the patio was our favourite part of the house - we ate every meal out on the deck in the glorious sunshine. It was also nice and central to everything we needed to access. We will definitely come back to this house.

Party of 5 including 2 teen agers

  • 4 of 5
Glen's wooded retreat was a great location for our family get away. We loved the space and the wood stove and spent many cozy hours in front of the fire. There are some great walks nearby. Glen is really a lovely host and very helpful. The location is quiet, but close to amenities like grocery stores and other great hikes that are a short car ride into either Gibsons or Sechelt Glen also accommodated our small dog and he loved it as well. It is both a cosy house and has lots of room to accommodate different combinations of guests. The wireless was a good connection too!
