Guestbook comments from the owner

First time we visited sunshine coast, we fell in love with the view of "Absolute heaven bed and breakfast". We stayed there 3 nights at the Island view suite. I can't describe the view in words----let me try --it is absolute heaven!! We drove around the area and to us this place has the best scenery. But the beauty is in the eye of beholder. It is conveniently located near grocery and shops. When we were planning to visit Sunshine coast we tried to book few other places.This time we also drove by to check their locations. We found out some of them are situated very high from the the beach and their driveways are also very steep.For us we have some back and leg pain, so absolute heaven was perfect for us.Our host Doug and Doreen made our stay very comfortable. The suite is equipped with a full kitchen and is spic and span. We got all the comfort of staying at a hotel but in a home setting. My 16 year old was happy because he got the full gym to exercise in. Also, they have a library of books and movies. They also booked us a boat tour with Mermaid Tour's and the tour was excellent. We enjoyed our whole trip.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay at Absolute Heaven! The suite was clean and spacious with an amazing view! We brought our toddler who had the best time playing on the beach! He loved combing the rocks for crabs and seaweed. The private sandy beach plot was also just perfect for him! There were many thoughtful touches at Absolute Heaven- beach toys already on the beach to use, a bottle of wine and snacks on arrival, as well as umbrella's in our suite. My son also enjoyed the games and books in the common room! It was great we didn't have to haul all of those things with us and there was lots to keep him entertained!

We only wish the weather had been more co-operative so we could have enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit!

Relaxing Oceanfront getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Absolute Heaven Suites. Doug and Doreen were excellent hosts and more than happy to help point us to nearby activities, attractions, and food. The suite is comfortable, well equipped, clean, and private. The hot tub on the ocean is amazing and the view from the suite is great. Wifi was a bit slow but if you're wanting to unplug while on vacation that's fine.

Soak it in! Beautiful, calm stay by the sea

  • 4 of 5

We arrived to this warm, welcoming, and well stocked suite by the beach. There were snacks and a complimentary bottle of wine waiting for us, with lots of plush towels for the beachside hot tub. The place was decorated and maintained with care, super clean and comfortable. We spent a lot of time in the hot tub, recovering tired muscles from our time in nearby tetrahedron park. We could have used more hooks for drying heaps of damp rainwear/towels/bathing suits we seemed to accumulate over our short stay. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Exactly what we were hoping for on our first visit to Sechelt

  • 5 of 5

To start, I would like to thank our hosts, Doug and Doreen, who were very welcoming and friendly throughout our stay. My 6 year old son and I didn't see them very often, as we were usually in downtown Sechelt, in the ocean, walking on the beach or exploring the other coastal towns. The cottage was clean, fresh, private and has a beautiful view of the ocean. Not to mention, ocean wave sounds all day/all night long make it hard to go back to life in the big city! I honestly got my best nights of sleep there in years! Thanks very much - I highly recommend this property to families.

Beautiful view. Friendly owners. Clean accomodation.

  • 5 of 5

I recently took my wife and 20 mo. son on a surprise trip to the Sunshine Coast. We stayed for 3 nights. We had a wonderful time. The owners are friendly and personable. The accommodation is bright, new, and clean. The little grass & sandy beach area are a nice touch, as the regular beach is very rocky, and maybe a bit dangerous for a young child. I would stay again.
