About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Enjoy sweet views of boats and ships passing by our terraced property overlooking the Strait of Georgia on BC’s Sunshine Coast. Our fully equipped and modern ‘pied-a-terre’ garden level suite with private entrance allows guests the freedom and independence desirable in a vacation rental or business stay. Every attention to detail will ensure that your experience is both relaxing and memorable whether it’s for a long weekend, week or month. We are located on Gower Point, a short walk to the seashore or a few minutes drive to the many amenities and activities offered by the town of Gibsons. While there, buy fresh seafood off the dock to grill on your own barbecue, or sightsee and dine along the water’s edge. The Sunshine Coast offers numerous hiking trails, art galleries, summer markets, and everything else you could imagine in a quaint yet vibrant seaside community. Visit “Sweet Georgia Terrace” and drink in the tranquility, fresh air and sparkling water many people love and look forward to returning to on the Coast. Adults of all ages welcome, but we regret that because our property is terraced, it is not suitable for children or pets. Our rates include cleaning fees and any applicable taxes.

About Suzanne Herman

Ted works actively as a film producer, Suzanne is a retired realtor. They too love to travel!

Suzanne Herman purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Suzanne Herman chose Gibsons

Beautifully appointed, clean and modern. Quiet and private yet only a few minutes drive to town. A great location near the sea and the best Gibsons and the Sunshine Coast have to offer.

What makes this apartment unique

The Sunshine Coast is a unique destination in that one can only access it by air or boat, making it a sought after rural destination within easy striking distance to Vancouver. However, travellers should be aware that being strictly reliant on a ferry service for coming and going may result in delays, should the ferry be running behind schedule or experience overloads. We recommend travellers reserve with BC Ferries to minimize any inconvenience relating to your arrival or departure, especially during the high season.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely, relaxed 4 days in the lap of luxury. Sweet Georgia Terrace is clean, modern, spacious and thoughtfully equipped to meet all the needs of guests. The appliances are new and good quality, making it a pleasure to cook or BBQ. The deck affords many opportunities to relax, suntan, soak in the view, or dine al fresco. The King bed is super comfortable, and all the linens are luxurious and new. The bathroom is stocked with fluffy towels, big mirrors, and mood lighting for the "candle light" bathers among us. There is ample closet space for longer stays, and the modern electronics make for easy viewing of movies and listening to music. The place is equipped with Wifi. The hosts are welcoming and helpful, but allow privacy. Shops are nearby, yet there is a sense of tranquility and "being away from it all". The property comes with parking, and there are many beautiful walks (including beaches) which can be reached on foot. The nearby Swallow's Nest is sure to delight the most discerning shopper or afford the perfect gift for that "hard to buy for" person in your life. All in all, we loved our stay and will return….And pass the link on to our friends and family. Thanks, Suzanne and Ted

Top Notch from start to end :)

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things about this getaway! Great views with modern furnishings. Loved the little extras like spices in the kitchen and shampoo in the bathroom. Nice patio options to eat outside as well as to sit in recliners and enjoy some beverages and enjoy the sweet view. Only a few minutes walk to the trailhead to the ocean. Nice features like washer/dryer and games to keep you occupied. Super impressed!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great hospitality from Suzanne and Ted. They made us feel very welcomed and their home definitely feels like a home away from home. Everything was spotless and they had a great movie selection. They accomodated our late ferry schedule by extending our stay for a couple of hours. In addition, they went an extra mile and provided us with information on how to contact a toll company, as we had a small hiccup on our way back to the ferry. We highly recommend people to stay at this fabulous home!

Really needed a weekend getaway with my husband. The suite is beautiful, so quiet, and just minutes from the beach! We loved having our morning coffees on the deck to watch the boats go by!

Short drive to Gibson where we had amazing food and explored the breweries!

We will be back!

This is, without a doubt, the most comfortable and well thought out suite that we have ever stayed in (and we've stayed in a few across this incredible country). Ted and Suzanne are lovely, accommodating hosts who thoughtfully consider all your needs while staying at Sweet Georgia Terrace. We cannot recommend this beautiful suite highly enough. Thanks Ted and Suzanne, it was a pleasure getting to know you both.

So Nice We [Stayed Here] Twice!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a relaxing and enjoyable experience the first time at SGT we had to come back! This review is an additional review to supplement our original review which can be seen below.

1) Getting to SGT is only a quick ferry ride over from Vancouver, making it an accessible and perfect getaway on the Sunshine Coast.

2) The beach located five minutes down from SGT is a beautiful spot for admiring the beautiful sunsets. We ventured down there each evening and loved it!

3) Suzanne and Ted are very sweet and attentive hosts who somehow made this visit even more enjoyable than our first. As mentioned in the first review, they ensure that SGT is fully equipped and remains up-to-date on the technology front - Geeky Graham was especially impressed!

4) SGT is very well-located. It is removed from any road traffic and noise but is just a short drive for groceries and stores. We ventured up to Halfmoon Bay for a day appreciated its close proximity to SGT.

5) Lastly, the home itself is as immaculate and beautiful as it was the first time.

Thanks to Ted and Suzanne for having us and we will be back!
