Cozy, Quiet & Clean Suite in the Heart of Gibson BC - Walk to Everything

The Sweet Start B&B - Suite is a lovely one bedroom/one bathroom private entrance suite located in Gibsons, BC on the Sunshine Coast. Although just a 40 minute ferry ride from West Vancouver or a short seaplane hop from the mainland, the coast can feel like a world away. It's a great place for an extended vacation or a quick weekend getaway for Vancouverites.

The Sweet Start B&B - Suite offers a comfortable home away from home for two to four people. The single, first floor unit (owners live above but are quiet) features a spacious living room, complete with a big screen television, a full bed pullout couch, and a dining area for your relaxing enjoyment. To further your downtime on the coast, the unit is well stocked with reading material and games for the whole family.

If you are looking to cook a few of your meals while on vacation, our quaint kitchen contains a stove, refrigerator and microwave. The cupboards are stocked with your basic culinary needs including dishes, pots, pans, utensils and a coffee maker!

In the bedroom, 'sweet dreams are made of' this king-sized bed. The comfortable bed also contains hypoallergenic bedding and pillows, to ensure sensitive skin and allergy sufferers a great night's rest. There is a dresser and a walk in closet for your clothing storage needs.

The washroom offers guests a tub and shower combo. There is towels, shampoo, conditioner, soap and a hairdryer for use during your stay.

Our rental is located near Gibsons Way and is accessible via the bus system, which originates at the ferry terminal. Great for people wishing to save a few bucks and avoid taking the car on a ferry -- or those who prefer public transportation. But , we do have off street parking right in front of the home for your vehicle.

While we currently don't offer to make you breakfast, we will have fresh ingredients for you to kick start your morning adventure. From pancakes to french toast to eggs and locally made sausages, your coast adventure will have a 'sweet start'! (Please note for longer stays over three days, we will only provide the first morning breakfast).

We are also a proud member of the Sunshine Coast Tourism (sunshinecoastcanada.com) and operate with a Town of Gibsons Business Licence.

The Sunshine Coast, although part of mainland BC, is a beautiful area that has a bit of laid-back island-esque charm.

With a view of the sound, our vacation rental is located in a unique place between upper and lower Gibsons on the Sunshine Coast. In either direction, we are within walking distance of many of the shops, restaurants and pubs that give this small fishing village it's local character.

From the famous Molly's Reach restaurant from 'The Beachcomber' TV series to the tasty treats of More Cafe in Lower Gibsons, everything is a short walk away (as long as you don't mind a small hill hike back). In upper Gibsons, there are grocery stores, thrift shops, a single-showing movie house and even a curling rink -- all just a short walk or a few minutes drive away.

Our house is located near Gibsons Way and accessible via the local bus lines (#90 and the #1), which originate at the ferry terminal and go to Sechelt. A car isn't necessary and there are plenty of pathways, hiking trails and nature walks to make it interesting.

In addition to walking, Gibsons offers the outdoor enthusiast their choice of adventure during the summer. From kayaking to sailboating to SUPs, hitting the water is easy with the marina a short distance away. If you are into shopping and looking for that special unique item, Gibsons has several stores to strike your fancy, including Blackberries and Whimsey in Lower Gibsons, Embellish in Upper Gibsons and the Mosiac Market in Davis Bay (a short and worthwhile up the coast).

The Sunshine Coast is known for it's art and hosts an Art Crawl (October). The region has the most artist per capita out of Canada. The 'Purple Banner Route' (Summer) allows visitors to drop in and see jewelers, potters, painters and photographers in their studio. Plus, there are a number of galleries located in lower Gibsons, plus the museum.

There are an assortment of pubs and restaurants for your dining pleasure, including the Persephone Brewing Company on North Road and Blackfish pub in upper Gibsons.

During the summer, lower Gibsons comes alive with music on the weekends, a Sunday farmer's market and a Friday public market. There are festivals such as the Sea Cavalcade (late July) and the painting of the mandala in Robert's Creek.

The true beauty of the area comes from the laidback, comfortable nature of the region. The people you pass on the street will say hello and everyone is charming. It's a place to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the city and reconnect with yourself.
