About the property

Charming 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Steps From The Ocean; Ideal For One Or Two People

Welcome to Hopkins Cottage located in Hopkins Landing on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. Picturesque, coastal cottage with modern amenities. The perfect place to relax and unwind.

A true getaway…only accessible via ferry or sea plane. Catch the Langdale ferry at Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver and begin unwinding on the 40 minute ferry ride.

By car, Hopkins Cottage is 2 minutes from the ferry and 5 minutes from the quaint town of Gibsons.

Drop your luggage, step out onto the large, wrap-around deck and start your stay by soaking in the expansive ocean and mountain views. You will plenty to do —from swimming, beach combing, kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking, biking, cross-country skiing and shopping to cozying up with a good book.

Enjoy breakfast in bed as you watch the ferry and boats come and go. Then explore the beach just steps away, whose scenic views are indescribably beautiful.

And yes, for those who can not disconnect -- we do have wifi!

Truly a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Renee is the perfect hostess - her attention to detail allowed us to move in and be very comfortable immediately. She provided many amenities that are often overlooked in other accommodations. The cottage is exceptionally clean, well stocked and very comfortable. If you are looking for a place to relax and totally unwind, this is it! Truly is a lovely spot to be!!

Renee is very thorough in providing directions to the property as well as information on things to do while staying here. There are lots of brochures in the unit to help in your decision making for your day excursions.

Thank you to both Renee and Dee for making our stay so comfortable and completely enjoyable. Much appreciated!

Charming and Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Hopkins Cottage as a long weekend getaway for my partner and I to relax and it was absolutely perfect! The cottage is warm and homey, it makes one feel very welcome, the furnishings of high quality. The directions to the cottage, resources for activities and instructions around the cottage were perfect, it was very easy to settle in. I also appreciated her quick response time and knowledge of the area! I simply can't say enough about the perfect location, and loveliness of the house, the deck being my favorite part, a beautiful area to take breakfast, happy hour, star gazing, any time of the day or nite. While we experienced a full gamut of weather there, the morning we left we found out why its called the Sunshine Coast. I can't wait to return, it feels like our home away from home.

A Lovely Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Hopkins Cottage last summer and knew we would be coming back. The cottage is lovely - nicely decorated, comfortable, with everything needed for our stay. The beach is very close by and we enjoyed our many walks looking for sea glass. Renee pointed us in the direction of Soames Hill for morning hikes with spectacular views of the surrounding islands. She checked in to make sure that we arrived safely - she had provided excellent directions for coming/to the cottage. Renee is an excellent host and offers an idyllic place to stay on the Sunshine Coast.

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

VERY nice and clean and excellent furnishings and modern decor and the perfect amount of space! Perfect location relative to the Langdale Ferry, as well as Gibsons and the rest of the Sunshine Coast. And a stroll on the beach is just a quick two minute walk away. The view off of the front deck is worth the visit alone! This was our first visit to BC, and we certainly hit the jackpot with enjoying this cottage! I can't wait to return and would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking for a perfect place to enjoy the Sunshine Coast! Owner is very nice and easy to deal with!

Perfect getaway retreat

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is just as it was described on the website. A quaint cottage but with all the amenities one would need and clean and updated. Renee has attended to every detail of making my vacation calm and relaxing without having to deal with any worries. The house is minutes from the ferry landing, the beach is just steps away and the town of Gibsons is a short car ride where you can find anything you would need. This cottage is nestled among gorgeous trees with a spectacular view of the water and mountains. I loved sitting on the deck in the mornings and evenings. Everything was so peaceful. I look forward to coming back and staying at Hopkins Cottage again soon.

I LOVED our stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We visited in early September and absolutely loved the area and the cottage. It's a very short distance to the ferry and probably 5 minutes into town, where we walked around and enjoyed the cafes and restaurants. The inside was immaculately clean and stocked with every item we could possibly need. The view from the deck was outstanding; on our last day we cherished every moment and enjoyed a glass of wine with some cheese and crackers and took in the view. I can't wait to stay here again.
