Cute and cozy cottage right on the water's edge.

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for some piece and quiet close to the ocean, this is it! Cute Little cottage with everything you need. Short walk to Gibsons. Relaxing seating options to sit and relax while enjoying the view from the deck. Friendly hosts and quiet neighbours. We hope to return one day!

Great location, awesome view, close to town, comfortable accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Beach Cottage in July 2016 and highly recommend this place for a couple to relax and unwind. The property is directly on the beach with a nice covered porch overlooking the beach and the community wharf, which is great for swimming from. The room itself has a comfortable bed that looks right out onto the beach and dotted island views. There is a full kitchen which we only used for keeping our beer cold, and making coffee in the morning. Speaking of coffee, Leslie (one of the owners) provided us with coffee and baked goods which were amazing.

The town of lower Gibson's is a nice community geared towards boaters and locals alike. From the cottage we were able to walk into town along the road (1.5km) and along the shore when the tide was out. In town you will find a good selection of restaurants/bars/etc. Be sure to check out the Persiphone Brewery located about 5 minutes away.

We highly recommend this place, and the Sunshine coast in general.

Couldn't ask for a lovlier location. We started to relax the moment we sat down on the porch just feet away from the lapping water.

Les and Andrew were great hosts starting with a box of morning pastries from their bakery accompanied by a small bag of ground coffee and a carton of cream. This treat lasted our entire stay and was a delightful way to start each day.

The cottage is basic but the bed was great (firm wiith soft sheets and a cozy duvet).

Our dogs were in heaven with free run of the beach and relaxed neighbors.

We'll be back!

Serene cottage with breathtaking beachfront views

  • 5 of 5

The lovely VRBO cottage where we stayed and rejuvenated ourselves during our excursions this past week. We listened to the gentle waves, captured some field recordings, and strolled along the ‪#‎sunshinecoast‬ line. Les and Andrew are incredible hosts. They provided helpful tips on local history, sightseeing and even gave us a box of pastries made at their bakery to celebrate our honeymoon. After we got stranded on Vancouver (twice) and missed the ferries, they offered extra assistance so that we could make our flight out of Vancouver the next day. We now have friends on Sunshine Coast and look forward to visiting them on the Coast again.

So lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Our favourite vacation weekend away from Vancouver. Lovely place, great hosts. We rode bikes, walked into town (and learned to pay attention to the tide chart for the walk home in the dark : ) and generally spent a lot of time staring out at the ocean. Can't wait to visit again.
