About the property

Heart of the Creek Cottage

Perfectly situated in the village, our private, quiet & newly furnished cottage is a gem!

1min. walk to stores, restaurants & trails

3min. walk to the public beach.

One night bookings, please inquire.

New BBQ, deck, beds, linens, dishes... Location, location, for a great vacation!

Bright and colorful with a unique atmosphere. A great balance between privacy and convenience, with all the village shops just a walk around the corner!

Robert's Creek in itself is a very special community, with all the events at the beach/pier/mandala, you can pop back and forth all day long, no car needed!

Guest Access

Guests have access to a full private cottage, outdoor deck with BBQ, lawn area for play and even a shared fire pit. The fully equipped kitchen is a joy to use, and will even inspire you to cook!

Interaction with Guests

Guest's will be sent a detailed description of how to find the cottage and where the keys are. You will see yourself in, and inside you will find more details on the cottage. We do end up meeting most of our guest's as we live on the property, but sometimes, we do not. We (or a caretaker) are always available by text or phone, if one needs, and are within the area to help if a problem were to arise or you need anything at all. If you have any questions about the area or anything at all please call us, we would love to meet you.

The Neighbourhood

What we love most about our community is that the village is our neighborhood. We have it all at our doorstep! The beach, the village, and the forest trails. The Gumboot Cafe is famous for it's character, yummy food and charismatic people.

Getting around

The public bus stop is a 1 minute walk away. The bus will bring you to and from the ferry, or, you can hop on the bus and travel north to Sechelt.

Other Things to Note

We have a queen size beauty rest bed, and a brand new queen size memory foam hide-a-bed. Also we have two 4" thick high density foam cot size floor mattresses, designed to fold up in the day and bring out at night.

Great location! Steps away from everything you need. The home was spacious and clean.

Set on a beautiful quiet property. The only negative was the towels didn’t smell the freshest.

Cute and comfy getaway

  • 4 of 5

The cottage, while not the only home on the property, is very private and comfortable.

Also pleasantly surprised by the location. Walking distance from a great cafe and restaurant, beaches, trails, parks. And stores if you need anything.

There’s No dishwasher, and a couple of the Dishes we used hadn’t been cleaned that thoroughly by the last people so they needed a bit of a rinse, but other than that a well equipped kitchen with everything you need for a weekend away.

Great location, lovely home

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for five days in late October 2017 and had a great time. The cabin was clean, well furnished and fully equipped. We were able to comfortably prepare our own meals and the bed was comfortable. The location is perfect for walks, access to Roberts Creek and driving to other nearby places. We were surrounded by trees and enjoyed the quiet, private location. We were able to watch favourite shows on Netflix and the wifi connection was good. We highly recommend this place - and it clearly has room for additional family members or friends. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in both cabins and loved them!

  • 5 of 5

We definitely reccommend Heather and her husband: such great hosts! We were at the Heart of the Creek twice this summer and was such a delight each time.

What we loved:

We loved the secluded layout of the cabins, they are very cozy inside, the bathroom is better in the left/entrance cabin, the living room in better and more spacious in the central cabin. We loved to sleep in a living room in fact!!! We have a 3 year old toddler and it was great watching the stars through the windowed ceiling. In short: these teo cabins are adorable, with a patio, with all utensils you need in the kitchen, all corners are round shaped - makes it super easy to have a rest with a toddler (!!!). We did BBQ both times, the bbq works perfect.

What we also loved was: the location. Across the road there is a small Roberts Creek village, where you can find organic and non-organic food, drinks, lyquor mini store, there are two restaurants - one casual and another one fancy. We loved the music store nearby, the village has a hippy vibe.

We loved the cat!

What could be improved: maybe only make the bathroom as pretty as the one in the left cabin. Then everything would be perfect for us.

Thanks again for hosting us :) we will definitely come back when in Sunshine Coast!

We've stayed at many VRBO's and each has its charms. This one has them all The setting is private and quiet: a cottage in the woods. Yet it is steps away from a great cafe and a great restaurant. The interior is warm and open with comfortable furniture. The kitchen has everything needed and there is a BBQ and outdoor table for six. A comfortable bed and plenty of space for clothes completes the picture. Laundry facilities make a longer stay more convenient.

Heather and Fin were usually on the property so available for any problems, of which there were none. They were welcoming and personable.

We will certainly plan our next annual trip to The Coast so we can stay there again.
