About Edda and Heiko Paulsen

We have been living in Gibsons since 2003 and love the laid back lifestyle on the Coast. We have a passion for great food and wine, travel and boating.

Edda and Heiko Paulsen purchased this house in 2003

Why Edda and Heiko Paulsen chose Sunshine Coast

We bought our home on first viewing. We have been boating in this area for many years and our dream has always been to live here. The opportunity knocked and we jumped! One look out the window is all it took; the lush private property and the panoramic water views seduced us. Living here on the coast has changed our lives.

What makes this house unique

Privacy, peace and tranquility.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

Edda and Heiko's Suite on Velvet was one of the absolute highlights of our trip to BC. Set within their beautifully landscaped backyard with a gorgeous view of ocean and the mountains of Vancouver island, the self-contained unit was charming, immaculate and expertly designed both in terms of exquisite decor (ie. Heiko's driftwood wine rack) and practical use of space (ie. compact freezer and fridge). Both the inside of the unit and the property had an amazing zen-like quality that made our stay both relaxing and invigorating. Special mention to the hot tub as it was the most beautiful imaginable in a gazebo-like setting with gorgeous views and romantic candles in lanterns for evening use. Edda and Heiko are as fantastic as their unit and property. They are wonderfully hospitable people who are there to greet you upon arrival and provide you with a detailed tour to make sure that your visit is perfect. And it was perfection for us! They are the consummate hosts who have put so much love and care into this extraordinary rental property. After our two days here, we went on to stay at the West Coast Wilderness Lodge up the coast. It was okay, but we missed Edda and Heiko's and, in retrospect, would have preferred spending two extra days here instead of the lodge. Even though the lodge was our 'big splurge' costing four times as much, we preferred the idyllic charm and gracious hospitality of Heiko and Edda's Suite on Velvet. We very much hope to one day come back to this extraordinary place.

Spectacular Property

  • 5 of 5

Edda and Heiko greeted me at my car with big smiles and hugs and showed me the suite. It is absolutely gorgeous and has everything you need, and is super clean. The view from the beautifully landscaped yard is breathtaking.

I had a hot tub at sunset and it is a memory I will remember forever.

The suite is about a 10 min cab ride at best from Gibsons Landing. I highly recommend this place as the hosts are wonderful and the suite is incredible. I could live there!!!

Book this one!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely, lovely place. This was our first trip to Canada and our first time to use VRBO. The reviews below were very accurate and the photos don't do this location justice.

The suite is small but very well appointed with full kitchen amenities, books, games, movies, etc. The hot tub overlooking the ocean is very relaxing and a nice way to end your day.

Two very small things to consider - there is no AC in the unit and no bathtub. We are from Texas but found the temperature to be very pleasant without AC.

Edda & Heiko are wonderful hosts and left surprises for us while we were there. EXCELLENT customer service.

Our trip was with friends from all over North America and they all agreed we had the best place to stay. Book the Suite on Velvet. You won't be disappointed!

A perfect hideaway vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Right from the start, the warm reception from Edda and Heiko confirmed that this was the right choice for our vacation stay. The Suite is beautifully finished and well appointed with all of the comforts one would expect of a 5 star resort. The beautifully maintained gardens and the luxurious hot tub made for a wonderful stay on the Sunshine Coast. The well selected wines made available for a modest fee was an unexpected touch. The view of the ocean and the privacy afforded allows for a very relaxed stress free time in beautiful surroundings. We would highly recommend Suite of Velvet, and will look forward to returning.

Tranquil paradise

  • 5 of 5

An excellent luxurious place to stay which has been created about 2 years ago. It was a pleasure that everything in the suite was new. There were many different sitting arrangements and we made use of them all. The garden is very well maintained and the the view of the ocean is a delight. Great attention to details. We would highly recommend this stay.

About Gibsons

Located a mere 40-minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay, Gibsons is the ultimate coastal getaway. The town is nestled between old-growth forest and rugged coastline and features a world-class harbor, a marina, eclectic art galleries showcasing the coast’s incredible talent, family-owned restaurants serving up fresh seafood and other delicious meals, and outstanding specialty shops.

And of course many will know that Gibsons was home to The Beachcombers, the longest-running CBC television show, which still has fans around the world. Molly's Reach, the restaurant prominently featured in the show, still serves up fish ‘n chips to the thousands of visitors whose trip to Canada would be incomplete without visiting this local landmark.

Are you a boater? Gibsons is the gateway to Desolation Sound Marine Park and the Gulf Islands. Keats Island and Plumper Cove Marine Park are a mere one-kilometer boat ride from the Gibsons marina. Don’t be surprised if you see seals, whales, dolphins, eagles, on your journey. And bring crab traps if you’ve got them. Nothing beats a freshly harvested Dungeness crab feast!

Fresh air, unspoiled nature—and the world’s most delicious water! Gibsons has won awards for the 'best tasting municipal water in the world' in international competitions. Very few municipalities have water clean enough that it can run untreated into a glass.
