About Paul Donin

We moved here from the UK in April 2011, and fell in love with the town of Gibsons, its friendly people and beautiful scenery.

Paul Donin purchased this House in 2013

Why Paul Donin chose Gibsons

Our home is atop Gibsons Bluff - in a quiet and tranquil setting. The entire lower suite is at your disposal and is accessed via a private entrance. The views of Lower Gibsons, the Marina and Mount Elphinstone are somewhat unique given the geography of Gibsons.

It was a top- notch experience, one that we would happily go back to and refer family and friends to visit! The listing description regarding the location, amenities and layout were all very accurate and they provided accurate directions. The owners were great hosts, and provided us with excellent customer service. They were warm, inviting when we arrived and were available if we needed anything throughout the stay. They provided us with a letter explaining their property, surrounding areas and important details, which were very much appreciated. The owners also left a binder with suggestions to some local areas and attractions as an enhancement to our stay.

                                                                      The property itself was lovely and well maintained, quiet and private, which was our desire. The layout of the suite was excellent. There were separate areas in it, which lent itself to privacy within the suite such as a door that closed between the living room/kitchen area and the bedroom bathroom area. Really nice. It was also such a pleasure to sit on the private deck and have meals, coffee and a glass of wine overlooking the hill, and also be able to watch outside from the bedroom window. The inside furnishings were clean, contemporary and beautiful. The owners provided for and anticipated every possible need in the bedroom, bathroom, living room and complete kitchen areas, providing extra bedding, a fan and even a picnic backpack should we have wanted it. They thoughtfully left us with milk and coffee and tea. The owners had a fantastic eye for interior design, in both detail and style, creating a serene and classic environment. Every furnishing, finishing and style design said peaceful, pretty and quality. We definitely appreciate all that went into providing and maintaining such a delightful property and experience for us. The surrounding town and vicinity were also great. When asked, the owner gave us a few restaurant recommendations, which we used and had great experiences at each of these eateries also. We had a delightful time in Gibsons, and look forward to the next visit!

                                                                      Hi Aileen and Aaron,

                                                                      It was great to meet you both and a true pleasure to have you stay with us. We barely needed to touch the suite after you left - we did of course ;)! Thank you both for being so respectful of our home and hope the rest of your holiday went well.

                                                                      All the best,

                                                                      Paul & Judes


                                                                      Agnes N.

                                                                      This place is the perfect getaway. There is a fantastic view, the place is quiet, the rooms are nicely decorated and very spacious. The bbq and patio is an absolute plus. Love it love it love it!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Thanks Agnes,

                                                                      It was an absolute pleasure to have you at our home and, aside from your car being in the driveway, would not have known you were here - you were so respectful of our property. We look forward to an early return.


                                                                      Paul & Judes

                                                                      Tranquil weekend at the Skyline Lodge

                                                                      James G.

                                                                      Our recent stay at Skyline Lodge was very nice. We found the rental clean and well maintained. Everything was easily located for our needs during our short stay there. The bedroom was spacious, well appointed and the bed very comfortable. Having meals on the patio was especially pleasant as it afforded an excellent view of the surrounding area and the quiet location made for peaceful relaxation. Would definitely stay there again when the opportunity arises. I would recommend this rental to family and friends looking for a quiet neighbourhood within close proximity to the village of Gibson.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Thanks guys, it was a real pleasure to host you both and we look forward to your return. All the best, Paul & Judes

                                                                      7 Reasons to Stay at the Skyline Lodge.

                                                                      Zen H.Vancouver

                                                                      A traveller to Gibsons could not find a better place to stay than Skyline Lodge.

                                                                      a) Well-appointed: It is situated on top of a rocky hill, overlooking everything else. It is the King of the Hill.

                                                                      b) Large patio: From which one may enjoy being the King of the Hill.

                                                                      c) Luxurious, well-thought out suite: within which one may find real quiet, and provisions for all contingencies. There would be nothing wanting, even for the most fastidious of travellers.

                                                                      d) No car necessary: a gentleman with a posh accent or a bubbly lady with a beaming smile will pick up from and/or drop off to the ferry terminal at Langdale. Alternately, the local bus is right in front.

                                                                      e) Proximity to Lower Gibsons: a leisurely 10-min stroll down a scenic hill to Molly's Reach and little shops.

                                                                      f) Birds: Surrounded by trees, birds of many varieties can be heard and seen. They are considerate birds as they were not heard at night, but regale with song during the day.

                                                                      g) Privacy: We were whisked to and from the ferry by otherwise magical, unseen and unheard, forces.

                                                                      Do stay at Skyline Lodge. But don't stay there when we want to stay there, because we plan to go back there and soon. :-)
