Welcome to our beautiful and private South Garden Vacation Rental estate. The five suites (in the main facility) and lovely Cedars Cottage (suite #6) are classy, clean, well appointed and contain every thing needed for our guests to feel they are on a luxurious vacation. Warmth and coziness beckons our guests to totally relax, making South Garden their home away from home. If children are a part of the group, a tall fence surrounding the property will give the sense of safety and freedom. The huge lawn areas provide lots of room for games and R&R. After a time of activity, the outdoor Hot Tub calls our guests to enjoy a relaxing soak while viewing natural gardens, tantalizing the senses. Just minutes from the main facility, a 10 minute hike up will bring our guests to the Upper Deck for an awesome sight over the Harrison/Fraser River valleys. Once up top there are more hikes over Green Mountain, where some have enjoyed an incredible game of 'Capture the Flag', in and among the huge ever green forest.
A large kitchen area, dining area as well as a comfy meeting room round out this week away nicely, providing spaces to visit, catch up with one another, laugh, play and relax.
Just a short drive in many directions from South Garden B&B will take our guests to all kinds of activities, historic sites, beautiful nature, lakes, hiking, canoeing, boating...everything you can imagine. Pack a lunch or enjoy the services of the restaurants nearby.
Come enjoy South Garden Bed and Breakfast, open for week stays during designated times in the year. See you soon.

About Jacquie Zuidhof
John and Jacquie have been married for 40, raised 6 children and now that our kids are flying on their own, we have room for more hospitality opportunities. 14 years ago we began our B&B and we loved it!! Now we no longer offer B&B options, but instead offer the entire facility and yard estate to our guests ie. we are now South Garden Vacation Rental. John is a teacher and so has the summer off (our busiest time) and I keep busy with the vacation rental, seeing our kids (all 11 of them) and grandkids, commuity involvement, church activities and just life.
Jacquie Zuidhof purchased this House in 2003
Why Jacquie Zuidhof chose Agassiz
John received an invitation to be the Principal at the local Christian School in Agassiz. We looked for a place which we could develop into a B&B which would be close to Harrison Hot Springs, a marvelous tourist destination. We also needed a place which would welcome our children for home visits. Thus the B&B/vacation rental was perfect.
What makes this House unique
John and I love to garden. Having a business that requires our garden to be beautiful and well cared for is a delight for both of us. We also enjoy people and running our vacation rental gives occasion to welcome guests from all over the world. 'Tis a great added benefit.

The perfect place for a family celebration. Private, quiet, beautiful landscaping. Everything you will need. Well stocked kitchen, plenty of bathrooms, games, books, dishes, you name it. We will be making this an annual event. Central location for us all. We were all so impressed.
Thank you for your kind words of appreciation sent our way. It is our privilege to offer a space for families and friends to celebrate together. Welcome again soon.
Beautiful, spacious and serene
My girlfriends and I spent an incredible weekend at the South Garden property. The house was spacious and well-supplied. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed for 16 people. The property is stunning-from the upper deck to the gazebo to the large lawn and hot tub area, there were plenty of places for our large group to hang out together. The property was incredible and Jacquie was warm and professional to deal with. I would highly recommend this property to any large group looking for a calm and serene retreat, a short drive away from the city.
Thank you for your kind words sent our way. The weather was beautiful and yes, peacefulness does surround South Garden. Welcome to you all again soon.
Beautiful house and property
Our extended family had a great 3-day Labour Day long weekend. It was my second time staying at the property and would come back again next year. It had everything you needed for a relaxing stay - large kitchen and dining area, large spacious bedrooms (each with air conditioning!), hot tub, landscaping, laundry, outdoor space, etc. Only a 3 minute drive to Harrison Lake. Thanks Jacquie for your hospitality. See you again next year!
We were honoured to serve your group again this year and also to hear that you all were pleased during you stay here at South Garden. Thank you sending out a review on our behalf. Welcome again next year. We look forward to meeting you.
Excellent experience. Lots of space! Everything we needed.
I had an excellent experience starting from when I pulled up to the drive way. I was greeted by the hosts and given a tour of the property and home we were staying in right away.
The property was extremely well maintained. Our company was super impressed with all of the work the owners/caretakers had clearly put into this place. The landscaping was immaculate.
We had a hot tub, gazebo, large yard, rock climbing wall, hiking trail, large TV in the family room, fast wifi, and cable vision. We even paid extra to watch an hbo boxing match so people didn't have to decide on watching it from home or going away. The television was "smart" with Netflix built in, and an Apple TV attached too. There was even a desktop computer if you didn't bring a laptop. Internet speeds appeared to be 150/150, which was excellent for having numerous people on wifi at the same time.
Every room had its own bathroom, which was extremely nice since we had a few couples with us at any given time. Each couple could be self contained in their own room. Half the rooms even had a second bed/cot.
Every room had its own air conditioner, which was also a nice luxury and made the summer heat much easier to deal with when going to bed.
5 minute drive from the lake.
A book of information was provided to us regarding the hot tub, washer, dryer, etc.
Would highly recommend. Will definitely be staying again in the near future.
Thank you so much for your kind words on our behalf. It is a pleasure to be serving our guests here at South Garden and to be assured that all needs were met for your stay. Welcome again soon.
sensational home away from home
My family recently stayed at this beautiful holiday home rental.It was in the perfect location for a wedding on echo lake and so close to Harrison hot springs.We arrived from Ontario and this gem accomadated all of us wonderfully.It had everything anyone could wish for while travelling and all questions about how to check out and where things were located were clearly laid out.Thee owners were fantastic to deal with upon booking but my only regret was that I was not able to meet in person as I was the last to arrive and first to go.we were so impressed with this vacation rental that we are considering planning a family reunion around the home.our group all had different favourite areas from gathering in the gazebo late at night to opening the door to steps right up the mountain.if considering the area of BC you should book your holidays around this location.Thanks again for the use of your home
We are thankful for your encouraging comments sent our way. As some of you had come from away, we sense that you felt comfortable and at home, here at South Garden. Welcome again soon.
South Garden delights!
Our extended famiily enjoyed a five day retreat/reunion at South Garden recently. With 8 adults and 8 grandkids under 10, there was something for everyone! Numerous places to sit (even entertained extended family for a barbecue), from the dining room to outdoor dining. A haven getaway patio with hot tub and the sound of water cascading down the cliffs provided a quiet adult retreat for good conversations and glasses of wine. The kids enjoyed running around, playing on the playground, playing a catapult game with their Opa and climbing the logs and beam walk. Lots of games for indoors and out! Adults beefed up rusty badminton skills. The kitchen had everything we needed...dishwasher worked great, lots of bedrooms each with their own bathrooms...that was a real treat for all! Grocery stores in Aggasiz are just five minutes away as is Harrison Lake! We enjoyed hikes to Bridal Falls and the Othello Tunnels of the Kettle Valley Railway. The waterslides at Bridal Falls were a real hit as well.
Owners Jacquie and John have created a warm and comfortable place to come away for awhile. Grandparents enjoyed the cabin getaway too!
What a delight to be serving you all here at South Garden. Indeed, this is a safe and welcoming place for families with children, grandchildren, with lots of room to enjoy one another's company. Welcome again soon.
