Why Edda and Heiko Paulsen chose Gibsons

We bought our home on first viewing. We have been boating in this area for many years and our dream has always been to live here. The opportunity knocked and we jumped! One look out the window is all it took; the lush private property and the panoramic water views seduced us. Living here on the coast has changed our lives.

What makes this apartment unique

Absolutely Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Edda and Heiko were gracious hosts and ensured we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The suite is very quiet, private and provides amazing views of the water and meticulously landscaped yard. We will absolutely be back to enjoy another romantic getaway!

Thank you guys again!!

Romantic, Beautiful and A Nice At-Home Touch

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend took me here for my Birthday weekend, a couple hours in I was going on about how I felt at home and everything was so romantic, we got more than we expected. Ended up going during a snow storm but it cleared up and it was still so beautiful (even during the storm), we enjoyed the hot tub and the view was simply outstanding.. Edda and Heiko really prepare everything and it was also my first time in Gibsons and my boyfriends first time since he was young and we both agreed it was the cutest little town, everyone is so polite and its really easy to get around. We drove around lots and found some hidden gems.

I recommend this place 100%, we will be coming back again to experience it in the summer :)

What a perfect get away for my girlfriend and I!! The pictures do not do this place justice. All the amenities were as described and the fact that its so private just made the whole thing even more spectacular. The surrounding area was great we used all the recommendations from the Edda and Heiko and they were amazing!! It was a great surprise for the love of my life to go to BC but the Suite on Velvet made it special and we will always remember our first stay on the Sunshine Coast , big thanks to the hosts!

We will be rebooking soon and we could not be more excited!!

Thanks Edda & Heiko

No Detail Missed - Simply Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here last weekend, and I CANNOT say enough good things about our stay. We already knew that this place was going to be amazing based on the many 5-star reviews that we read before booking, but it still greatly exceeded our expectations.

The owners were so lovely and welcoming, the backyard is so beautifully landscaped and absolutely stunning (even at night with the way that everything is lit up!), and the suite is gorgeous. It was incredibly clean, is well-equipped with absolutely EVERYTHING (right down to the fully stocked wine rack that you can help yourself to and then either replace what you took or leave $20 for it; what a great idea!), modern, and very nicely decorated.

The huge and very clean outdoor hot tub is another great feature. It has a spectacular view of the ocean, and there are candles on the side of the hot tub to add ambience and romance in the evenings.

The owners gave us complete privacy, but also let us know to not hesitate to contact them should we have any questions or need anything.

We had such a fabulous stay here and knew within the first 5 minutes of being there that we’ll DEFINITELY be going back many times in the future! The only thing about this place is that it’s ruined us for any other vacation rentals from now on. I’m sure that no other place will even come close to comparing to this one!

About Gibsons

Located a mere 40-minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay, Gibsons is the ultimate coastal getaway. The town is nestled between old-growth forest and rugged coastline and features a world-class harbor, a marina, eclectic art galleries showcasing the coast’s incredible talent, family-owned restaurants serving up fresh seafood and other delicious meals, and outstanding specialty shops.

And of course many will know that Gibsons was home to The Beachcombers, the longest-running CBC television show, which still has fans around the world. Molly's Reach, the restaurant prominently featured in the show, still serves up fish ‘n chips to the thousands of visitors whose trip to Canada would be incomplete without visiting this local landmark.

Are you a boater? Gibsons is the gateway to Desolation Sound Marine Park and the Gulf Islands. Keats Island and Plumper Cove Marine Park are a mere one-kilometer boat ride from the Gibsons marina. Don’t be surprised if you see seals, whales, dolphins, eagles, on your journey. And bring crab traps if you’ve got them. Nothing beats a freshly harvested Dungeness crab feast!

Fresh air, unspoiled nature—and the world’s most delicious water! Gibsons has won awards for the 'best tasting municipal water in the world' in international competitions. Very few municipalities have water clean enough that it can run untreated into a glass.
