Property description

The major attraction of this four level home is its location with beautiful views of Howe Sound, the Georgia Straits, Keats Island and the Coastal Mountains north of Vancouver with exceptional hiking nearby.

There is also an office upstairs with two single beds. The entry level consists of an powder room, 'open plan' kitchen, dining area, and living room with a wood burning fireplace and access to a deck perfect for watching the marine traffic and boating activities. The third level has a sitting room with a queen size Murphy bed, a bathroom with shower, a laundry room and access to a small patio. The lowest level is a large open room with two twin beds, a sofa and wood burning stove. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower, soaking tub and amazing views of the Sound.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: We are retired professionals from Arizona.

Why the Owner Chose Gibsons:
We fell in love with the beauty and peacefulness of this small unique community as well as the incredible summer weather as compared to Arizona. It is unique in that it can only be reached by drive-on ferry from Horseshoe Bay just north of Vancouver. The one-way trip is 40 minutes. Because of that it is a very quiet vacation retreat, but there are summer farmers' markets, arts and craft markets and community activities. A small hospital is 20km away in Sechelt with air lift capabilities to Vancouver.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are less than 1km from Lower Gibsons. Major shopping areas are in Upper Gibsons or Sechelt which requires driving. Our favorite ritual is watching the boating traffic on Howe Sound and looking for the elusive bald eagles as they fly by while we are sitting on the deck sipping our wine.
