About the property

Central 2 bed,1 bath Suite with private entry, close to Marina, Beach & Village

Come and enjoy our bright, newly renovated garden suite in beautiful Gibsons Landing; beaches, boat launch and marina, public market, shops and restaurants all within easy walking. Your home away is located in the heart of the Bay area, known for it's spectacular scenery and quaint, artsy small town vibe.

The fully self contained suite is a short 7 minute drive from the ferry and yet you'll feel like you're away from it all whether you choose to hang out in the garden reading a good book or relaxing in the hot tub after a day of beachcombing, kayaking, hiking or maybe shopping and artist studio touring. Our wish is to make your home away a comfortable sanctuary as long as you're here.

We are located in the heart of Gibsons Landing close to everything, (in a flat, walkable neighborhood) 1/2 block from LaBonte waterfront park and a short stroll to 3 excellent picturesque swimming beaches. The Gibsons Public Market and Marina is a short block away and a few more steps takes you to the Landing's Shopping, Gallery and Restaurant district. You'll find ample casual dining including the iconic Molly's Reach. Gibsons and the Sunshine Coast offer great restaurants and craft breweries who collaborate with many local foragers and farmers to offer seasonal bounties that will bring out the foodie In you.

The Suite features a private entrance a full newly renovated kitchen and in suite laundry, along with a lovely outdoor seating area and hot tub in the back garden.

After enjoying the town and area come back for a relaxing soak in the tub while the comfortable Queen size bed and blackout draperies will have you sleep like a baby and wake up refreshed to start the day. The living room has comfortable seating and a flat screen television and a full size, comfortable wall bed. The roomy, well-appointed bathroom has a relaxing soaker tub complete with natural bath salts. There are Bluetooth speakers to let you listen to your favorite tunes inside and out along with internet

We love our little town and are always happy to help you with planning your stay, we can make recommendations and arrangements for boat tours, studio visits, farm, fishing, sailing tours or where you can find a unique yoga experience.

There is a massage table available for your use, or book a session with a local masseuse to help you relax and melt away your stress.

There's so much more to this community than being the "Beachcombers" hometown (1972-1990). To name a few of our town's unique features, Gibsons was named most livable community under 20,000 (2009) in a world wide competition. Gibsons famously has chlorine free, natural aquifer purified drinking water and the Sunshine Coast boasts more artists per capita than any other area in Canada.

We could go on and on about the town we first visited ourselves on a weekend getaway some 6 years ago. You may be coming here to attend one of our many festivals and events or using your stay to launch a new adventure or just to relax away from the big city. Whatever the reason for your visit we look forward to welcoming you!

Why Karen Blunderfield, Chris Van Nus chose Gibsons

Chris and I came to Gibsons like so many others with very little knowledge about the area, open to whatever might be discovered on a weekend with friends. Well, we fell in love with the quiet beauty of the town and friendliness of the residents. We got married here at "Bonniebrook Lodge" less than a year later, during one of our event planning trips we noticed an opportunity to start a business and move to the community full time. The choice to buy this home was largely based on location, location, location, the level walking area, steps from the waterfront meant we could see ourselves living & working within walking distance to most of what we need daily and leaving the car at home. The vibrant arts community, the relaxed pace of life along with the overall beauty of the area and reasonable housing costs all made this community a special opportunity.

What makes this house unique

The view up Howe Sound and the waterfront being just 200 feet from our door with wildlife and bird sightings common while exporing or walking on the waterfront lenjoying spectacular sunsets and quiet, star filled nights

Comfortable living and beautiful location!

Karen and Chris are fantastic hosts and share a lot of info about the area and places to go and see. The suite was very updated and comfortable. The location is near the harbor for nice walks and views. I would defiantly come back again.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Although a tight fit for 4 adults, the property was exceptionally well presented, was immaculate and the hosts went out of their way to be welcoming and helpful. The property is in a great location; it was a 5 minute walk to the centre of Gibson’s Landing and a minutes walk to a beach. All in all a great first experience of the Sunshine Coast and we will be back.
