John and Jacquie have been married for 34 years, raised 6 children and now that our kids are flying on their own, we have room for more hospitality opportunities. 7 years ago we began our B&B and we love it!! John is a teacher and so has the summer off (our busiest time) and I keep busy with the B&B and my whole other life going to school, seeing our kids and grandkids, church activities and just life.
Jacquie Zuidhof purchased this house in 2003
John received an invitation to be the Principal at the local Christian School in Agassiz. We looked for a place which we could develop into a B&B which would be close to Harrison Hot Springs, a marvelous tourist destination. We also needed a place which would welcome our children for home visits. Thus the B&B was perfect.
John and I love to garden. Having a business that requires our garden to be beautiful and well cared for is a delight for both of us. We also enjoy people and running our B&B gives occasion to welcome guests from all over the world. 'Tis a great added benefit.
This is our 2nd year staying at South Garden. We had 7 adults and 7 children (all under the age of 8) staying for 3 days. We really like this place as it has 5 bedrooms and each bedroom with its own bathroom!!! The kitchen is big and sometime we had 3-4 people in it at once! There is a lot of counter space in the kitchen. There are plenty of mugs/cups and glasses as well as dishes and utensils. The dining room with extra chairs can fit 12 people around the table. There is a TV in the living room as well as a few bedrooms had a TV in it as well. There are board games and books for young children to play with There is a huge grass area in the front of the house where young children can play safely. There is a seesaw as well as a swing set. There is a fire pit with lots of chopped wood available for burning. It was really nice to sit around the fire pit roasting marshmellows. There is a hot tub that we never had time to use but it was right outside the house by a nice waterfall. There is a hike behind the house which all 14 of us went on. It is a challenging hike for the two 3 year olds which parents had to carry them at certain spots. The toddlers (5-7) needed help in some areas as well. The house is about a 5-10 minute drive into Harrison Hot Springs. We rented water bumper boats which the children loved as well. The owner, Jacquie, replies to emails quickly and answers all the questions I had. I definitely recommend this place for anyone especially for big group of friends/families travelling together. I will definitely be renting this place again!
We rented South Garden for 3 generations of my family as home base when my son got married. We also hosted and ice cream buffet the night before his wedding. Jacquie was extremely helpful aiding me get tents, tables,chairs, bus transportation for guests. It couldn't be a more perfect setting! The flowers and trees are stunning, and the youngsters enjoyed the games and wooden puzzle challenges. Highly pleased!
We had an totally wonderful experience at the South Garden Vacation Rental. There were 9 adults and 5 children, all under 6 for a week-long family reunion in July 2016. The house is very well designed for a large group of people, with a separate bathroom for each bedroom, and a large dining and playing area, well-stocked kitchen, outside grill, safe fenced area outside for children to play and picture perfect flower garden. There is space enough both for privacy and for joint activities on the second floor. Children enjoyed the playground in the yard with a sandbox, swings, sea-saw, croquet, badminton - all provided by our hosts. There are a lot of toys and board games for children inside the house too for different ages, so the children could be entertained in all kinds of weather. The house is surrounded by trees and spectacular flowers, pretty enough to be published in a Home and Garden magazine, it feels very secluded yet it is just a few minutes drive from the fun village of Harrison Hot Springs with a good choice of restaurants, sandy beach, shallow water for small children to swim and wade near the lagoon and a water park, boat rentals on the Harrison Lake - for older children and adults. There are amazingly beautiful views and hiking trails within short driving distance from the rental. Quite a challenging climb up a rocky hill can be accessed right from the back deck of the house. A built water-fall from the near-by rock provided peaceful background sound of falling water day and night and a joy for the eyes every time you happen to look at it. Plenty of outdoor activities both for adults and children - hiking, rock-climbing, boating, biking country roads, picking blueberries at a farm field, watching happy chickens at the Happy Chicken Farm, goats, pigs. The owners, Jacquie and John were very welcoming and gracious - the best hosts one can wish to have! They stayed in another building on the same property, and they were very easy to reach if we had a question, yet they gave us a sense of privacy, as if we were totally alone in their beautiful home. We would highly recommend this vacation place for large groups of people both with children and without. We are looking forward to our future visits at this rental property. Thank you, Jacquie and John for providing such a delightful experience for all 14 of us.

Our group of 10 (plus 2 children) stayed at South Garden for 4 days. There was something for everyone to do (games, hikes, netflix) and things that we could all do together (horseshoes, a fire pit, a hottub).
The beds were very comfortable and the view from each room is spectacular. Everyone had an amazing time and noticed how well group stays work at a place where every room has a bathroom. The gardens were immaculate, which made everyone feel completely peaceful. South Garden is the perfect place for a group stay or reunion. There is lots of space and plenty to do.
The day trips we took were to Bridal Veil Falls, Othello Tunnels and Harrison Hot Springs by the beach. It's the perfect location for those who like to get out and go see some things. If you choose to stay put, there's even a hike up the back of the property which leads to a lookout.
Thank you, Jacquie and John for your great hospitality!
We rented the house for our girls getaway and were all thrilled with the beautiful surroundings. The property and gardens are incredible and with each walk about we discovered more and more things to do without actually having to go anywhere !!! Including some dead headings of your beautiful baskets as we had a few gardeners with us.
Thank you Jacquie and John for sharing with us. All 10 of us would definitely recommend it to our friends and families.
We had a wonderful time in this beautiful house! We satisfied with all the facilities, especially for the hot tub and the BBQ. We are four families and the each suite has a private bathroom is more than comfortable for us.
