About Julie

Both retired teachers, we have both gone on to 2nd careers in real estate, health care, hospitality, woodwork, airline industry and B and B owners. We love travelling and meeting people and so decided that we would join up with VRBO and share our lovely piece of waterfront real estate.

Julie purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Julie chose Sunshine Coast

From our own personal experience with staying in vacation rental properties, of prime importance to us is Comfort and Cleanliness. Thus, we have ensured that our home is spotless and that comfort can be found in every room. The living room has a big sofa you can sink into, the snug has 2 comfy easy chairs where you can get cosy and enjoy a good book. The beds are queen size with new mattresses and very inviting bed linens.

What makes this townhome unique

So many benefits! - a 5 foot circular skylight in the foyer providing glorious light on the greyest of days, free WiFi, 46 inch TV, contemporary and attractive decor, brand new kitchen with stainless steel appliances, tastefully decorated, spectacular views from every room, full laundry room with washer and dryer, free parking, walking distance to all amenities, 5 minutes from the ferry. Once you're here, you won't want to leave!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Words can't describe the unfolding vistas beyond the front door. We have so enjoyed every nook and cranny, every viewpoint from every window and sat for hours with the binoculars just ocean watching! Every possible need has been catered for and interior colours/design superb. Certainly the very best accommodation we have ever stayed in and been able to see our family here too. Time has flown by and still so much more to explore and discovers in Gibsons, Thank you so much our wonderful stay here.

Beautiful Gem in Gibsons!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in Gibsons and we wanted a place that was clean and free of any overpowering scents as we are both allergic to dust and to scented products. This beautiful townhouse did not disappoint! It was perfect. Sparkling clean, tastefully decorated, and no scents! There is scented hand soap but it is very mildly scented. We enjoyed being right on the water and hearing the waves as we relaxed in the living room. The bed was extremely comfortable...a must have for us...and the kitchen had lots of counter space and new stainless steel appliances. Off street parking right outside the front door was another plus. Our hostess, Julie was wonderful. She responded promptly to emails and met us when we arrived. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be returning next year if not sooner!

Owner's Response: Melanie and Roger, We are thrilled to receive your wonderful review of our property. Thank you for your kind words and I am so very pleased that it was to your satisfaction. I'm afraid I was unable to respond to your recent request to book next year. After my husband's back surgery, there was a considerable set back and my emails piled up. After a concerning time, we are now back to normal!! We would be only too happy to accommodate you next year if you'd like to get in touch again, either personally or through this website. Kind regards, Julie

10 out of 10 !

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here mid-March to mid-April- enjoyed watching the flowers bud and bloom, warm weather, long walks plus the action in Gibsons busy harbour. Everything was ship-shape and clean as a whistle, Frank and Julie the perfect hosts. Gibsons is just big enough with a great library and staff, and convenient grocery stores etc. We sat in the upstairs nook and watched the ducks and otters, sailboats and working vessels that abound in the bay. Never a dull moment, and better than TV. Thanks for a wonderful month- already booked next year and can't wait.

The Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 people total staying at this Wonderful Home. This place is very clean with the perfect views from every level of the house. Julie and Frank are the nicest people you will meet, they even lent us their row boat for crabbing and fishing! We will be back next year again!

over the moon!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect spot for rest and relaxation. The views were amazing, a full moon reflecting off the water with front row seats in luxury. Thank you Julie and Frank for such a memorable stay, the home is so well thought out and maintained. We'll be back as soon as possible. P.S. the hula dancing was a great bonus!

Absolute perfection

  • 5 of 5

I cannot speak highly enough about this fantastic house! My parents were visiting Vancouver from the UK and I wanted to show them Gibsons, so we booked a long weekend at this place and had a fantastic time.

Firstly, the location is excellent - just a 5 minute bus, taxi or car ride from Langdale Ferry and only metres away from Gibsons marina and the famous Molly's Reach. We did not need a car at all during our stay. And most importantly, it is right on the waterfront - you are just three steps away from the beach and the gorgeous ocean. The views from the large windows are absolutely beautiful and it feels like being on a ship when the tide comes in.

The house is decorated perfectly and no expense has been spared in providing every convenience, from a fantastic huge fridge/freezer with an ice machine to an entire laundry/dryer room. There are three bathrooms and two very large bedrooms, plus a lovely deck and a large patio/BBQ area leading out to the water. Everything is so comfortable that it's impossible not to feel relaxed the entire time you're there.

We received a very warm welcome, including some lovely wine and treats, and Julie was such a nice person to speak to - very attentive and genuinely cares about her guests.

This place was so perfect, my parents booked again to come the very next weekend! We cannot wait to return one day.

Locaton! Location!

Step out the gate of the beachfront patio - turn left and enjoy a short stroll to the beach and the wharf. Turn right and saunter into town with its galleries, gift shops, coffee shops, restaurants, museums, boutiques and pub.

Drive out of town for a few minutes and you're in the middle of nature - forests, secluded beaches, wonderful walks and hikes. The Sunshine Coast has it all.
