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 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.

Beautiful huge property with mountain, playground and hot tub

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This is the best vacation house we have ever been to! Huge property, we had so much fun hiking to the mountain at the backyard. The kids love the playground and play soccer so freely at the huge backyard . The five bedrooms and the cottage suites are spacious for 19 of us. They have everything in the kitchen. They even have rice cooker, blender slow cooker and electric wot to name a few . Love this place! The owner Jacquie is friendly and approachable. Thank you very much Jacquie! We'll come back soon.

Great property but be prepared to do laundry to avoid the cleaning fee

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a girls weekend away. The property was perfect for our needs. A large kitchen, eating area and living room meant we could eat and socialize as a group. The 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms meant that everyone had their own space to escape to.

Just one warning, the hosts don't charge a cleaning fee if you wash the sheets and towels and leave the place clean. It's great to have the option (if you leave the sheets dirty, a cleaning fee is removed from your deposit) but we didn't know this ahead of time. We found out when we arrived. You'll also need to give yourself enough time the morning you leave to start all the loads before checkout.

Owner's Response: Thank you for sending along a review on your stay here at South Garden. We are saddened that you felt you must do all the laundry, when we asked that just a couple of loads be started. This information is stated in the 'rental agreement' sent before the reservation had been set. Our guests are usually grateful to be offered a lower rate which excluded a 'cleaning fee'. The 'rental agreement' states that our guests may opt instead to pay the cleaning fee if so desired. Please accept our apologies, as we could not meet you personally upon your arrival. Thank you again for letting us know how you felt, reminding us to be more clear with future guests. You are most welcome to visit South Garden again. It would be our pleasure to be serving you all. Sincerely, Jacquie

Super comfortable and cozy!!

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by Jacquie and John when we arrived. They're super friendly and did a nice tour around the house for us! The house has a cozy feel to it. Although it's secluded from the other houses in the area, it's still close and convenient to get to the village! A group of us stayed at the house for the weekend and there were more than enough beds for us! We also enjoyed the hot tub outside! Overall, great stay and will definitely be coming back in the future !

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at South Garden. John and Jacquie were super helpful and wonderful hosts.

The grounds worked very well for our kids - lots of room to play. And the accommodations were first rate. We especially loved the ensuite bathroom in each of the rooms. We will definitely be back!

Great for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at South Garden this past weekend to celebrate a late thanksgiving with our family. It was perfect! There was so much that South Garden had to offer! We loved having separate rooms/bathrooms for each individual family, and the common room allowed for a big family meal as well as lots of room for the kids to play. The kids were entertained for hours outside with games, biking, and the hot tub. We will definitely return! Thank you South Garden!

Great spot for a small wedding!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a fantastic time here. We held our wedding with 12 guests... and it could not have been any better. The garden was an excellent venue for the ceremony and the dining room was the perfect size for our dinner. I recommend this spot for anyone planning to do the same!
