Guestbook comments from the owner

First time we visited sunshine coast, we fell in love with the view of "Absolute heaven bed and breakfast". We stayed there 3 nights at the Island view suite. I can't describe the view in words----let me try --it is absolute heaven!! We drove around the area and to us this place has the best scenery. But the beauty is in the eye of beholder. It is conveniently located near grocery and shops. When we were planning to visit Sunshine coast we tried to book few other places.This time we also drove by to check their locations. We found out some of them are situated very high from the the beach and their driveways are also very steep.For us we have some back and leg pain, so absolute heaven was perfect for us.Our host Doug and Doreen made our stay very comfortable. The suite is equipped with a full kitchen and is spic and span. We got all the comfort of staying at a hotel but in a home setting. My 16 year old was happy because he got the full gym to exercise in. Also, they have a library of books and movies. They also booked us a boat tour with Mermaid Tour's and the tour was excellent. We enjoyed our whole trip.

Ideal location on the Sunshine Coast

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed one week in the one-bedroom carriage house suite rental at Absolute Heaven. The suite was very clean and well appointed with all we needed for our stay. We used the BBQ often; easy to access right on the deck. The view from the suite and the deck is magnificent! Lots of screened windows make it easy to create a cooling cross breeze in warmer weather. We also enjoyed having the gym / fitness facilities right below down stairs, as well as a washer and dryer which was very handy. We were a little worried about noise from the Sunshine Coast Highway, as the bedroom is at the back of the property and right off the highway, but even during peak days in peak season, the noise was minimal and did not bother us and was nothing compared to city living! The trade off on the highway location is the fantastic ocean view and water front location. Everyday we spent hours (in fact most of our time there) at the beach area that Doug and Doreen have thoughtfully prepared on their property with chairs, lounge chairs, tables, sand and a palapa-style hut for some shade (and lots of toys and activities for kids, too). The ocean swimming is good in front of the property and there is beach area for walking and ocean activities. Doug and Doreen are friendly hosts and made sure we had everything we needed. They have put in a lot of time and effort to make this rental a welcoming and beautiful oasis in Sechelt. I would definitely recommend this property and it will be the first place I check for availability on our next visit to the Sunshine Coast.

Fantastic view, lovely comfortable suite, central location for adventures

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay. Easy check in and check out. I would have to say that watching the sunset while having a glass of wine in the hot tub was a great end to a day . The carriage house had everything we needed it was so much better than staying at a hotel. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return in the future.

Everything you need & more

  • 5 of 5

This property was one of the best places we have ever stayed. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming. When we arrived, they took us on a short tour of all the great features of the property. The location is great and is equipped with a buoy out front for a large boat - we have a grady white. The suite has a breath-taking view and is perfect for four adults. The kitchen and bathroom are fully equipped with everything you need - even a absolute heaven bottle of wine! They supplied plenty of towels for the beach, shower and hot tub. The grassy area down by the beach is great for relaxing and enjoy the scenery. It also includes a custom fire pit fully equipped with fire wood and fire water - we loved making s’mores down there. Its a quiet, relaxing spot with everything you need and more. Well be back very soon! Thank you!
