              Car: Not Necessary

              'Located at the south end of the Sunshine Coast, just north of Vancouver, Gibsons (population: 4,182) is a quaint town of artists and fishing boats. It's famously known as the location for the longtime hit TV show The Beachcombers, which first aired in 1972 and ran until 1990.

              It attracts visitors with its chilled-out blend of water and land activities, suitable for all ages and ability levels. Go kayaking, canoeing, or fishing. Enjoy hiking in the Sunshine Coast's regional and provincial parks, or play golf. Relax while visiting farmers markets, dining at diverse restaurants, browsing through museums and art galleries, or checking out local festivals and events.'

              Everything is so close that it is possible to do many things in one day. We personally love to hike on the beach and in the various local woods with our dogs. During the winter Dakota ridge is a winter wonderland and great place to ski and snow shoe . We also sell our hand made all natural soaps in the many local markets that are held year round. Want to buy something local? Just let us know what and we can find it for you.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: Caroline and I have lived in and around Vancouver for over 27 years, both having come from Quebec and Albert before that. We both speak English and French. We live with our youngest son, aged 17, our two dogs and a cat. We love to meet new people and share our piece of the coast with them.

              Why the Owner Chose Gibsons:
              We moved to the Sunshine Coast 9 years ago after falling in love with it on our own vacation visits here. We love all the animal life, the tranquility and the friendliness of the place. Everything you need is here and there is so much to do; indoors and out. We have 2 beaches that are just minutes away from our house that we love to go and walk along rain or shine. There are many parks near by where we can hike or go bike riding or walk our dogs.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We live across the street from a small park, so there are trees, deer and birds every where. At night it is so dark and peaceful you can see thousands of stars in the sky and listen to the crickets and frogs while you sit on the deck.
