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, movies, 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.

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!

MULTI-FAMILY NEW YEARS GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
Our group included two families with toddlers as well as other couples, so we loved the size of the place. It was easy for the kids to be far enough away to sleep through evening noise, and for the non-parenting adults to sleep through the noise of early morning wake ups of the kids! We enjoyed the fireplace & outdoor firepit, the large & beautiful living room, as well as the lovely outdoor surroundings. Beautiful trees & on a sunny day a view to the ocean. Glen was super accommodating & easy going, welcoming the one dog that came with us, and even lending us a blow up air mattress so we could squeeze in another couple of people for our New Years Eve celebrations. The location was ideal for us - nice and quiet, and close enough to the ferry terminal to pick up & drop off people who were walking on to the ferry, so not everyone had to drive over. We had to drive to the beaches, as the trail was too much for the toddlers in our group, but that was fine for us.
The decks and bbq definitely had us all thinking about a summer get together as well!

BIRTHDAY CAMPOUT

  • 5 of 5
I decided this year to spend my birthday visiting Glen at his place up in Gibsons. I had a thoroughly enjoyable time. I brought two friends along for the weekend, and we spent the evening sitting around the fire pit toasting marshies and wienies and each other till we crawled off to bed and slept very well in our comfy rooms. We enjoyed it so much we decided to do it again nest year. It's like camping with all the comforts. Thanks to Glen and Sheba for a great getaway! We'll be back!

WEDDING PARTY(IERS) ;)

  • 5 of 5
My fiance, our bridal party, signifigant others and more stayed for four nights and everyone plans on going back at some point this year and next year. Wonderfully private location for the guitar playing singers in our crew and wonderfully laid back host Glen!! Whether is a getaway for two or 12, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this house to rent and I will use it again (even though my parents live in Gibsons and I have a free place to stay whenever I want)!!. Dog friendly and kid friendly!! Not too far from anything (five minutes or less to town) as long as you have a car :) and the coast has a ton of beaches to visit!! Can't wait to go back for birthdays in december!!!
