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.

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!

Look no further...Suite on Velvet is absolutely breathtaking.

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing weekend we had at Suite on Velvet...on arrival we were greeted by Heiko and Edda (nicest most down to earth couple). I was immediately blown away by the view and the beautiful property they have. They have created a little piece of heaven. All the little details from the outside lights, driftwood, hot tub overlooking the ocean and did I mention the view!!!

The suite was so cozy and warm, truly felt like home. Suite was equipped with everything you need and more. They have really taken into consideration every little thing you would need, including robes and flip flops.

We will be back and highly recommend this suite. Thank you Heiko and Edda for sharing your little slice of paradise.

So much better than a hotel!

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we chose to stay at Suite on Velvet instead of a regular hotel room. It was very peaceful and had beautiful views! Edda and Heiko left us our privacy but made it clear upon meeting them that they were available with any questions or concerns. The kitchen was stocked with all the necessities, including some well appreciated extras such as coffee, tea, creamer, some spices, and more. Most restaurants were closed over New Years when we were there, so we took full advantage of the kitchen and barbeque. The hot tub was one of the main reasons we chose Suite on Velvet. It did not disappoint, especially with the views of the sunset. Gibsons is a great little town, we especially loved our visit to Secret Beach. (I hope we're not giving away a secret!) We would definitely return to Suite on Velvet if we ever get another weekend away from our toddlers :)

We enjoyed our stay very much. Edda and Heiko met us and showed us the space and then left us to enjoy it! The hot tub was great and provided for amazing views. We would definitely recommend to everyone else!

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.
