About The Owner

We are retired professionals from Arizona.

The Owner purchased this house in 1999

Why The Owner chose Gibsons

We fell in love with the beauty and peacefulness of this small unique community as well as the incredible summer weather as compared to Arizona. It is unique in that it can only be reached by drive-on ferry from Horseshoe Bay just north of Vancouver. The one-way trip is 40 minutes. Because of that it is a very quiet vacation retreat, but there are summer farmers' markets, arts and craft markets and community activities. A small hospital is 20km away in Sechelt with air lift capabilities to Vancouver.

What makes this house unique

We are less than 1km from Lower Gibsons. Major shopping areas are in Upper Gibsons or Sechelt which requires driving. Our favorite ritual is watching the boating traffic on Howe Sound and looking for the elusive bald eagles as they fly by while we are sitting on the deck sipping our wine.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great stay, nice and peaceful, thanks for having us. We recommend this place!

Great Gibsons Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at this property for a long weekend and had a wonderful stay. The house is right on the water and has beautiful views! The property itself is fully equiped with everything you need including a BBQ. The property manager was very accommodating and our check-in / check-out was very smooth. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for a great weekend away!

BLISS

  • 5 of 5

The house and property are so much more beautiful than the photos show. We had dinner at Gramma's pub the first night and then bought groceries so we didn't have to leave this wonderful place. Everything you need is here. We all slept like we haven't in ages . We thoroughly enjoyed all this house has to offer and would love to come for a longer stay.

Wonderful views and great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is a real gem, a great find. Very relaxing atmosphere, both inside and out. We were lucky to be able to spend a whole month here - during which we only had a couple of wet days. Weather was remarkable - we were able to eat outdoors almost every day. From the deck we saw orcas, seals, deer, an immature bald eagle, a hummingbird, cedar waxwings and more. We are very grateful to the owner for the opportunity to share this outstanding property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very kind review. I am only jealous that you got to see orcas again! We saw them two years ago and it was the thrill of my life.

Amazing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 3 nights in February with my boyfriend and 2 other couples and we had an incredible time. This is the kind of place where you really don't have to leave the house or property to enjoy your vacation. The house is absolutely beautiful with lots of room and space for everyone. It has a very open feel to it and so many amazing big windows that look out onto the ocean, providing spectacular views from every room. We spent a lot of time looking down at seals swimming directly below. The kitchen is big with every kind of pan or appliance that we needed to cook our meals. There are several outdoor areas and patio spaces (again with those amazing views) that provided amazing places to sit and relax with a cup of coffee. The property is quite large so it also felt quite private which was nice. Both the owner and the manager were wonderful to communicate with and were quick to answer our inquiries and make us feel comfortable in the home. We all want to return for another get away (hopefully sooner rather than later) and I highly recommend this place to anyone looking in the Gibsons area for a vacation rental.
