A rustic beach cottage just steps from the water in beautiful Grantham's Landing. Arrive here in just five minutes on disembarking the ferry at Langdale terminal.

You can't get closer to the water than this!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect little cottage to rest and relax if you like to spend your day lounging and just staring at the water - cool drink in hand. I loved gazing out at the water, and hearing the sound of it lapping the shore. Very quiet, quaint place. (It does have Wifi and TV for those who need it.) Les and Andrew are generous and charming beyond belief - and they bring croissants, muffins and pasteries!! (they own two bakeries) A little gem Gibsons!

Overpriced for quaint, rustic and unmaintained

  • 2 of 5

The location is great and hospitality was great! Loved the "More" baked goods!

Over priced for somewhere that needs some gardening, a paint job, some deck repairs, a new shower door, a bit of a moth issue, No WIFI and the TV remote was not working. :( A bit of time, love and money and this place would be more worth the money.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback on your extended stay, that wasn't charge for. The place was left in a mess and with two large dogs and two adults and two mountain bikes, it definetely is not the place for a couple that's looking for rugged setting. We cater to quaint romantic getaway for the ideal couple. A couple of teachers that just didn't want to spend. Hope you find a more comfortable place in the future. Les and Andrew

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect! Right at the beach, with a lovely view of the ocean and mountains. Minutes from the ferry and in to town. The cabin is rustic, which was not and issue for us. It was very clean and well stocked with whatever was needed for cooking. The queen bed was very comfortable and firm. Our hosts were amazing, lovely people. We were given some delicious muffins (gluten-free and regular) and some, to die for almond croissants, baked daily at the hosts bakery, in Gibsons. The refrigerator/freezer was not working properly, but we mentioned that and it was going to be dealt with. If you need internet, you may want to check before booking to make sure it is working, as it did not work while we were there. We had a very lovely stay. Thank you Les and Andrew!

Cute and cozy cottage right on the water's edge.

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for some piece and quiet close to the ocean, this is it! Cute Little cottage with everything you need. Short walk to Gibsons. Relaxing seating options to sit and relax while enjoying the view from the deck. Friendly hosts and quiet neighbours. We hope to return one day!
