About Julie

Both retired teachers, we have both gone on to 2nd careers in real estate, health care, hospitality, woodwork, airline industry and B and B owners. We love travelling and meeting people and so decided that we would join up with VRBO and share our lovely piece of waterfront real estate.

Julie purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Julie chose Gibsons

From our own personal experience with staying in vacation rental properties, of prime importance to us is Comfort and Cleanliness. Thus, we have ensured that our home is spotless and that comfort can be found in every room. The living room has a big sofa you can sink into, the snug has 2 comfy easy chairs where you can get cosy and enjoy a good book. The beds are queen size with new mattresses and very inviting bed linens.

What makes this townhome unique

So many benefits! - a 5 foot circular skylight in the foyer providing glorious light on the greyest of days, free WiFi, 46 inch TV, contemporary and attractive decor, brand new kitchen with stainless steel appliances, tastefully decorated, spectacular views from every room, full laundry room with washer and dryer, free parking, walking distance to all amenities, 5 minutes from the ferry. Once you're here, you won't want to leave!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Words can't describe the unfolding vistas beyond the front door. We have so enjoyed every nook and cranny, every viewpoint from every window and sat for hours with the binoculars just ocean watching! Every possible need has been catered for and interior colours/design superb. Certainly the very best accommodation we have ever stayed in and been able to see our family here too. Time has flown by and still so much more to explore and discovers in Gibsons, Thank you so much our wonderful stay here.

Locaton! Location!

Step out the gate of the beachfront patio - turn left and enjoy a short stroll to the beach and the wharf. Turn right and saunter into town with its galleries, gift shops, coffee shops, restaurants, museums, boutiques and pub.

Drive out of town for a few minutes and you're in the middle of nature - forests, secluded beaches, wonderful walks and hikes. The Sunshine Coast has it all.

Perfect place for a relaxing getaway.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and another couple stayed for 3 nights in this wonderful house. The house was bigger that we expected from the photos, and the location is ideal. Only a 5 minute walk, along the beach path or road to Gibsons, and it is right on the water! It was very easy to relax and enjoy the view of the passing sailboats and kayaks. Julie was very accommodating, and the house had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. Thanks for the treats, that were waiting for us when we arrived! We hope to return before too long.

Owner's Response: Thank you all so much for this lovely review of our vacation home. It is particularly appreciated after a less than positive start to your stay due to the fact that the power was out for hours, the house was cool and you were all uncomfortably chilly. To hear that you hope to return was wonderful and I will do all I can to ensure you arrive next time to warmth and comfort. Julie

Fabulous view and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for a few days of much needed total relaxation. We enjoyed several walks along the shoreline trail (right out the back door) and around Lower Gibsons. (right out the front door) The location was also convenient for exploring the Sunshine Coast. I loved the recliners that can be turned to look out at the water and I especially enjoyed watching a family of otters swim by. The bed was very comfortable and the house was super clean. There are several good eateries and a taproom within close walking distance so we didn't really use the kitchen much but it seemed well appointed. The owner responded quickly to questions. Overall a great stay!

Peaceful and charming little slice of heaven. So close to town but very quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this lovely spot! The location is close to town as well as the dock and the swimming area. We were amazed how quiet it was. It was warm on the main level and so having fans is a must in the summer heat. It is beautifully renovated and has everything that you need. Would have loved a bigger barbeque. Be aware of the 4 flights of stairs. It was no problem but a heads up to any future visitors.

We will definitely come back!

Life on the water ............

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay at this property. The view is incredible and you are right on the water. We took our kayaks and were able to launch them from the townhouse which was a bonus. The accommodations are very nice and the bed very comfortable with great linens and lots of other nice touches. Best part of our stay - the two captains chairs in the living area that look right over the water - we spent hours in them sipping wine and just watching the boats come and go. You are very close to town (2 min walk) but you would never know it once you are inside and close the doors. Only (slight) negative is there are a lot of stairs as it is built on 4 levels. If you dont mind stairs, this place is awesome and convenient to everything. Thanks for your hospitality Julie! We will be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this glowing review. It was a pleasure having you stay in our vacation rental and we do hope you will be back. We agree that the stairs can be a little challenging but the positive side is that one gets a cardio workout at no additional cost!! Delighted that you enjoyed the chairs - it doesn't get any better when one combines relaxing comfort and a glass of wine while watching the magnificent, ever-changing view.

What a view! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! Julie was a great host and easy to contact if we had any questions. The location is lovely and having a dedicated parking spot was a real bonus. We traveled with a friend and it was nice to each have a bedroom with its own bathroom. I love to cook and the kitchen was a pleasure to work in. One thing to note is the small BBQ is 2 flights down from the kitchen so a cardio workout is instore. The bedding was luscious and it was so nice to hear the waves outside. The view could not be beat- my husband who is a real tv junkie did not turn on a tv the entire trip. We spent so much watching the ocean happenings - so relaxing. Gibsons has everything you need and we found everyone so friendly and welcoming. There are many great hikes and interesting sights along the Sunshine Coast and there are no words to describe its beauty.

breathtaking!!

  • 5 of 5

We didn't know what to expect upon arrival , but this place exceeded all expectations! . The views from every room are amazing and unobstructed. Julie and Frank are warm and kind and made us feel at home. Listening to the ocean and the seagulls is so soothing and relaxing, it was very hard to leave. You are literally a 5 min walk from Gibson"s Landing, Loved every minute! Thank you Julie and Frank
