About the property

A four bedroom waterfront cottage at Hopkins Landing on the Sunshine Coast. Minutes from the ferry from Vancouver, this retreat is a great spot for families or friends.

• Full kitchen with all the basic equipment including a microwave and coffee maker

• Dining room and living room with woodstove fireplace

• 4 Bedrooms

- two front bedrooms (one queen and one single) that look out to the ocean

- a second queen bedroom with an ensuite

- a room with a double for the kids with lots of games and toys

• 1.5 Bathrooms

• Outside Patio

The waterfront location is absolutely priceless. Watch the sunrise over the mountains in the distance, play on the beach during the day and sit outside on the patio at night to watch the stars and see the moon come up.

There is lots of room for parking and a bus stop close by to take you into town. We are a ten minute walk from the BC ferry terminal so it's possible to come without a car.

Getting Around

From the airport without a car, you can take the Skytrain to Vancouver City Centre, then take the Blue Bus to Horseshoe Bay. At Horseshoe Bay you take the Langdale Ferry (~35min). Once you land it's a 15 min walk to the cottage.

Getting To the Cottage

From the airport by car, take highway 99 through downtown Vancouver, following the signs for Highway 1A through Stanley Park and over the Lions Gate Bridge. Over the bridge, follow the signs for West Vancouver. Stay right and take a right onto Taylor Way. Turn left on to the Trans Canada highway and follow sign for the Horseshoe Bay Ferry terminal. Take the Langdale Ferry. The cottage is a three minute drive off the ferry.

About Karen Rolston

Our family has been coming to Hopkins Landing since 1923 and we are delighted to be sharing it with you. Our favorite things to do at the cottage include playing on the beach, hiking up Knob Hill, watching the sunrise, playing cards, drinking wine on the patio, sitting under the cherry tree, exploring the town of Gibsons, swimming off the pier, walking along the beach, golfing in Robert Creek, reading on the chaise and watching the stars.

Karen Rolston purchased this cottage in 1957

Beyond words

  • 5 of 5

My common-law partner and I wanted to take a trip to BC to restore and be close to the ocean. I spent hours upon hours trying to find the right place, always second guessing myself. One evening, I spoke with the owner of this amazing cottage, Karen, and I knew it was the right place.

We showed up to this ocean-front cottage, and the view before getting out of the car was so breathtaking that we couldn't believe it. We spent hours looking out on the ocean, sitting in the living room with the large bay window.

Karen put so much detail into the cottage for the guests. There were info sheets to tell you exactly where to find things, how to care for the place, and how to clean upon our departure. Literally everything we needed was there, ready for use. The cottage actually feels like a cottage, which is so great, and made us feel relaxed.

We were in a perfect place to explore the Sunshine Coast. Every day, we took our rental car up the Coast, only to realize at the end of each day that we had the best views from home.

Thank you. I only wish we could be there now.

It was charming!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed two nights at this cabin on the beach. Even though it rained on us solidly for a day the views were fabulous from the living room window and we relaxed watching the ferry and shipping cargo come and go. The owner was super easy to communicate with and very responsive. It is a very short drive to lower Gibsons which has a great fishmonger on pier B and a nice oyster house called Smitty's. We would love to visit again.
