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 apartment 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 apartment unique

Privacy, peace and tranquility.

A true relaxing experience .

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely stay at this suite. We didn't want for anything. The hosts were wonderful and their suggestions for sights and restaurants were welcoming. After a day of beach combing were met with a soak in the secluded hot tub. We will be back.

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a place that we could enjoy with our two kids (2.5 years old and 7 months old). We wanted to be able to put the kids to bed and still feel like we had a romantic getaway. This was the perfect place! Edda and Heiko have such an amazing property with a beautiful view! Once we put the kids to bed, we were able to enjoy the gorgeous view from the back yard, and even the hot tub! Edda and Heiko have thought of everything, from a welcoming card and chocolates when you arrive, to bath robes, coffee, tea, and flip flops to wear out to the hot tub. They really have thought of everything to make your stay feel more enjoyable. We will definitely be back! Thanks for providing a great family vacation spot!

My famaily and I loved our stay at Suite on Velvet. Edda and Heiko's attention detail is really what puts this place above and beyond your average vacation rental and makes you feel like a VIP guest. The hot tub and views are spectacular! I'm sure we will stay again.

Charming and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Edda & Heiko were wonderful hosts to my fiance and I this past weekend. They contacted us before arrival as the weather was awful and offered to help us carry our belongings down a small hill to the apartment rather than risk getting our vehicle stuck in the snow.

From there, they made themselves scarce but were available via text if we had any questions or concerns... which we didn't! The apartment was so warm and inviting with lots of personal touches, from a hand-written welcome, fresh flowers (and balloon wishing us a happy anniversary.. how thoughtful that they remembered!), chocolates, and all the cute decor.. it was all clearly thought out. The hot tub was stupendous, with such a lovely view. My fiance and I had an absolutely delightful stay, and we very much look forward to another visit in the future. I would recommend this place to any couples looking for a cozy and romantic getaway.. but I also kind of don't want to recommend it because I want available dates for myself in the future ;)

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a birthday weekend/get away and couldn't have asked for much more; we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The suite (which is beautiful) is in a great location for exploring the Sunshine Coast, equipped with everything you need, and want (bbq and hot tub!). Edda and Heiko were extremely pleasant, and the little touches they had set up in the suite were a lovely surprise (like a birthday ballon!). If we return to Gibsons, we would love to stay again. Thank you!

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.
