Gibsons House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The major attraction of this four level home is its location with beautiful views of Howe Sound, the Georgia Straits, Keats Island and the Coastal Mountains north of Vancouver with exceptional hiking nearby. The most unique quality is its peacefulness and the friendly and inviting atmosphere of the town and Sunshine Coast.

The master bedroom suite, on the upper level is large and airy with a king size bed and comfortable seating area and bathroom with whirlpool tub and walk-in shower. There is also an office upstairs with two single beds. The entry level consists of an powder room, 'open plan' kitchen, dining area, and living room with a wood burning fireplace and access to a deck perfect for watching the marine traffic and boating activities. The third level has a sitting room with a queen size Murphy bed, a bathroom with shower, a laundry room and access to a small patio. The lowest level is a large open room with two twin beds, a sofa and wood burning stove. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower, soaking tub and amazing views of the Sound.

About The Owner

We are retired professionals from Arizona.

The Owner purchased this house in 1999

Why The Owner chose Sunshine Coast

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.

Absolutely amazing !!!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures online do not even begin to represent how beautiful this house and surrounding scenery are. Came here to celebrate our recent engagement with our families and were blown away by the comfort this home provided for 6 adults and the breathtaking views. Would recommend this house for anyone looking to get away and enjoy the beauty this portion of BC has to offer.

Beautiful, unique,relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good 4 days here. It rained for two of the days and we were happy inside, looking at the boats going by and the view of Howe Sound and the Islands beyond. Then a couple of nice days for hikes and sitting on decks. 8 people and plenty of room, plenty of space for privacy when someone needed it. We loved that the house was built around the rocks, so that some of the rocks were inside the house.

Exceptional accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for 10 days this September. The pictures on the VRBO website do not do it justice, as the house was exceptional. Our family appreciated all the amenities and well stocked kitchen. The location was great and the views splendid. The main living was large with an open concept which was ideal for entertaining expended family members for dinners and memorable evenings., The outdoor space was enjoyed by all our adult family members.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this rental home was perfect. From the booking to final payment everything was seamless and easy. The owner was accommodating and the property manager fantastic.

The listing was as advertised and we were surprised at how much more there was. The home was clean and well maintained. The property manager was very helpful and answered all of our questions. I would recommend the property to anyone looking for a very nice place to stay. There are plenty of good restaurants to try in Gibsons and along the sunshine coast that are short drive away.

The home is large and beautiful and we could not think of a better place to stay in Gibsons. The home is close to town, and yet quiet. The views are unmatched and the amenities all there.

Beds are comfy, the kitchen is large, and there are ample spaces to relax and enjoy.

The rental may seem expensive, but it's totally worth every penny. Stay a full week to enjoy the area and the accommodation.

Hope to return soon!
