A lovely place to stay!

Monique responds quickly to my messages. Tom and Monique are very welcoming. Their place is very cute and cozy. It has so much to offer! They were helpful in suggesting places to see on Sunshine Coast. The scenery is gorgeous! We will return as we had an amazing time.

BEST Travel Experience, SUPER Hospitable and Thoughtful Hosts! 5/5!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Monique and Tom's was one of the best travel experiences my fiance and I have *ever* had! Starting with excellent communications from our hosts who answered all of our questions, they even beat us to the punch of a few they knew we might have! Being first time VRBO'ers they guided us through the whole process masterfully.

The location is perfect walking distance from a beach, all the stores you could possibly need are within a 5 minute drive, and the ferry is roughly the same distance.

This BEAUTIFUL suite exceeded all expectations and our experience could NOT have been smoother. If I had questions about anything, they were swift to respond. As most people know, when you go out of town to meet up with a family reunion/wedding, you hardly get time for yourselves. Both Monique and Tom were extremely considerate of our privacy and we really really, really, valued that. The peace and quiet of their humble abode was exactly what we needed on our trip. It was a beautiful, thoughtful, home away from home. Truly a safe place to let your shoulders fall and let your hair down :).

We can not have been luckier to have had our very first VRBO experience with this amazing couple! You owe it to yourselves to give their unit a go, we highly, highly recommend checking them out!

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful apartment was our home away from home for 2 months! We were moving to the Sunshine Coast and Monique & Tom kindly let us stay in their very comfortable apartment while we got settled here on the coast.

It had everything you needed including laundry and it was just 2 steps out the door to the lovely garden and yard where there were often deer in the evening. We spent many evenings at nearby Bonniebrook beach (5 min walk from the apt) walking along the ocean there and watching the gorgeous sunsets and all the boating activity on the Salish Sea.

Monique and Tom were fantastic hosts. They are very kind, helpful individuals who really helped us get our bearings here & get acclimated to life on the Sunshine Coast. They gave us lots of good suggestions on places to go, things to see, where to get certain services and advice on ferry schedules too! They even offered to loan us their truck/van when we moved out!

I would not hesitate in recommending staying at this apartment with such awesome hosts as Tom & Monique.

Cozy Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Monique and Tom's wonderful apartment in March. We enjoyed the peace and quiet on our private porch that looked out over their beautiful property. We were amazed to see deer sleeping on the grass in front of our bedroom door just off of the patio. The proximity to Gibsons and the ferry was great. We loved walking to the beach and then along the beach. It was so beautiful and peaceful. I would and will return. We will bring our mountain bikes the next time we go there. Awesome trails are close by. We felt so welcomed and at home with both Monique and Tom. I would definitely recommend their home to anyone who likes a peaceful and relaxing setting. Highly recommended.

Great get-away.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a relaxing time at Tom and Monique's. We were able to rest, enjoy the quiet, and yet be close to the ocean and spectacular scenery. Tom and Monique were helpful and friendly and made our visit a real pleasure. They answered all of our questions about the area, and advised us about a variety of activities.

The suite itself is comfortable and has the features you would expect at home. Also, you have the convenience of a washer and dryer, and the use of a hot tub and sauna. Everything is up to date and well cared for. You can walk out onto your patio from the bedroom's double doors to enjoy a morning coffee or tea, and watch the deer who are frequent visitors to the yard. Next time I visit Gibsons, I will most certainly stay at Tom and Monique's.
