Gibsons chalet description

This forest retreat away from the bustle of the city is almost entirely surrounded by trees. Ten minute drive from the Langdale Ferry is a wonderful home base for exploring the coast, or just staying warm and cozy by the fireplace. The house is a spacious 5 bedroom chalet style home with huge wrap-around sundecks overlooking our private yard, gardens and forest wilderness ravine. The upper bedrooms have private decks, and a sitting room with a library/lounge, a short drive to picturesque beaches, Gibsons’ seaside village cafes, restaurants, and the local mall.
Your home away from home is equipped with high speed internet, Wi-Fi, 55' plasma cable TV, Wii, Play station 2, DVD player, and telephone. The yard is an oasis with a pond, palm trees and waterfall. If you enjoy peace and privacy this is your dream location.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2012

          About the owner: My name is Glen and I am a 58 year old bachelor. I was born just outside of Winnipeg to a military family. I moved to Vancouver in 1972 and worked as a carpenter/contractor and ran a successful business for 15 years. This is a whole new life for my dog Sheba and I .I have wanted to live here on the Sunshine Coast for the last 30 years. Here I am now living the dream.

          Why the Owner Chose Gibsons:
          I chose this property because there is so much room. We can accommodate large gatherings. The home has a very warm feeling inside with 25 ft. high ceilings finished in pine. The open concept, huge windows and all the native art give it west coast character. I have travelled all over the world and I have learned the best holiday in the ones with the lest amount of travel to be the most relaxing . A short drive. A 40 minute ferry ride. Puts you in one of the most beautiful parts of the world.

          The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
          Native art decorates every wall. There are many beautiful and original pieces. The old growth trees are massive. The 2 acre ravine is a nature paradise/rain forest. Pet friendly to well behaved K9s. Motorcycle rider’s paradise with winding roads along the ocean and old growth forests.To make your holiday more enjoyable, we have tried to think of everything and include it in a binder. Watch for it on the coffee table. It is easy reading and should answer all your questions. It covers the jet tub, fireplace, phone, laundry facilities, board games, TV Channels, phone numbers, and more. It is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the “How To’s” of the house when you arrive. There is 1 RV site with power and water.
