- Captain J's is a seaside suite that is the perfect place to escape whether to enjoy the fireplace inside and look out at the winter storms on the water, to sitting outside on your 40ft deck and enjoy the sunrise with your coffee or star gaze at night with a glass of wine. As we are right on the water you can enjoy swimming and water sports during the day, then casually walk down the beach to lower Gibsons for dinner or to shop. There is great hiking trails, bike trails, kayak rentals, and sailing mostly all within walking distance....moreless

Year Purchased: 1949
About the owner: Captain J's is 97 year old and has been in the McKinnon family since 1949 when John McKinnon the first bought the house from Mr. and Mrs. Cave. The Caves built this house with wood from the old armoury on Bowen Island after the First world War in 1919. When Mrs. Cave became ill, they were forced to sell and that was when our grand dad purchased this house. When grand dad bought this place, him and Grama lived downstairs with two suites for rental upstairs. In 1957 John McKinnon died of heart disease and grama moved up to one of the suites upstairs and rented the bottom suite out to Vi Madsen who stayed here for 50 years. John McKinnon the second and his family came up on weekends and summers till he retired, then they split their time between here and Coquitlam. In October, 2006, John McKinnon the third, acquired the house from his Dad and started on a journey to renovate the old place and make it our home. We started off with tearing out all the flooring downstairs and digging down 5 ft to lay a foundation. From there we worked withthe help of friends and family for 2 full years. It has been a journey through time and family history as we discovered writings stuck in walls, old bottles, golf clubs and many hidden treasures along the way. This old house is a time capsule of the McKinnon family history with old doorframes marked with children's heights and ages to timeless memories of family get togethers and summer fun.
Why the Owner Chose Gibsons, BC, Canada:
John has been up to this summer place all his life, and then of course brought his wife Cindy and their children. This was just where we came every summer, or weekend we could get away, so if was only natural to make it our home in the end.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
You only need to wake up one morning and look out as the sunrises over the water and the mountains sparkle with snow too know you have come home. Sitting in the early morning with your coffee, where else would you want to be.
