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 Vancouver Coast & Mountains

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.

South Garden delights!

  • 5 of 5

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!

The property was absolutely beautiful! It included amazing landscaping, birds, bees, and flowers!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for our family camping trip! We have 10 grandchildren under the age of 9. They loved the playground area and sandbox! They were happy and safe, which made the adults relaxed and happy. There was plenty of room to roam, and even a hike in the back of the property. We also thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub. The location was perfect for short outings to some of the Circle Farm Tours and an amazing celebration at the Agassiz Farm Research Centre. We could not have hoped to find a property that was better suited for our extended family. :)

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at the South Garden. Beautiful yard with many plants and pots of flowers. Lots of grass space for the grandchildren to play, and also large sandbox and a swing set.Very safe yard for them.

The hike to the lookout was well worth it!

The house was a great size for our family of 10 adults and 6 children. It was very nice that we each had our own bathroom.We all found the beds very comfortable. The air conditioning in each bedroom was a bit loud when it started up each time, but after one night we got used to it.

Enjoyed watching all the different birds that came to feeder, that was just outside the kitchen window..

The owners were very kind and helpful with any questions we had.

We would highly recommend staying here.

Memorial day with European friends

  • 5 of 5

One of the best vacation house we visited! Very nice house, big kitchen with all equipment you need for weekend, amazing garden, very big yard! Kids love to play outside all the time. Every bedroom has a bathroom too, it is perfect for our group with small kids.

A short hike with a rock viewpoint near by your property is amazing. Too bad you didn't write about it on VRBO :)

Thank you again, Jacquie!
