Overview

About the property

3 BR plus additional bunkhouse (sleeps 4) oceanfront bungalow with 2 full bath

A hop, skip, and a jump away for Vancouverites: you will spend your time relaxing instead of travelling to do it and will feel a million miles away. Our cozy 1950’s bungalow is perfect for couples, friends, or family (or 2 families!) to get away from it all. When you leave the ferry, you are 15 minutes away by car, and as you turn the corner onto our street, you will be treated with a stunning ocean view as you slowly meander up the street to the bungalow, which is near the end of the road. Beach walks (you can walk for miles) and beach bonfires (don’t forget the marshmallows for the kids!) are just steps away (yes, really!) and can be enjoyed any season of the year. We even have a paddle board and kayak for your use! It is an incredibly snug storm watching sanctuary in the off-season. The wood burning fireplace, deck with ocean sounds and views (your backdrop: Georgia Straight and Vancouver Island) facilitate togetherness and good times where memories can be made—enjoy a glass of wine while you cook on the charcoal grill and check out the amazing sunsets from deck , garden, beach, or the open common room/kitchen with large, newly renovated windows for that incredible 180 degree South/Southwest view. Curl up on our recently added window seat with a book (we have many on the shelves!) or soak in the new clawfoot tub with a lovely view of the ocean. Play some board or card games or try your hand at painting one of the sunsets..but don't worry-if you need to connect with the outside world we have WIFI. The bungalow has 3 bedrooms, each with a Queen bed. A few strides away is a newly renovated bunkhouse (with its own deck) that sleeps 4 more (one set of bunk beds and a daybed that turns into a King bed for 2 more). The Bunkhouse is also perfect as a kids play area, or for someone who needs some quiet time. Make Bonnie Bungalow part of your family holiday tradition!

About Valerie and Geoff Cundiff

My husband and I moved our family to North Vancouver, Canada from Baltimore, MD several years ago and it has been a wonderful place to raise our family.

Valerie and Geoff Cundiff purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Valerie and Geoff Cundiff chose Sunshine Coast

Did you ever have a 'This is IT' moment? Well, we did! We fell in love with the simple charm of this bungalow with unspoiled nature right at our feet and knew we wanted to create even more family memories here. We are continually awed by beautiful BC and what it has to offer:mountains, ocean, rivers, lakes, glaciers, rustic beaches, forests, canyons- and the list goes on. So easy and quick to get here on the ferry and it truly is a 4 season place to come relax, unwind, enjoy. We hope you can share some fine family memories here too! Great for girls' or guys' getaways or a romantic place to land for a couple!

What makes this bungalow unique

Gibsons is an idyllic seaside town and the pace is easy going. Whether it be horseback riding, cross country skiing, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, fishing, swimming, boating, (and more), no matter the age, there is truly something for everybody! Our golden retriever just loved the off-leash beach right outside the door (she has now passed unfortunately but our lab puppy is now loving it)! Our daughter loves to frolic on the beach and wave down the ice cream truck that regularly comes down our street in the summer. Our sons are avid mountain bikers and they have been thrilled with the trails in Roberts Creek and the Coast Gravity Park for mountain bikers in Sechelt. The wood fireplace is the most special spot to curl up by with a book or while playing board games...and now the new window seat too, with a view of the ocean. I love hearing the ocean waves as I fall asleep at night and the birds singing in the morning.

Car: necessary

Gibsons is a charming, walkable town with many shops and restaurants along the waterfront. Take Scenic HWY 101 to explore other cool areas such as Roberts Creek, Sechelt and beyond.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend staying at this comfortable, spacious vacation rental. I recently stayed here in a group of 6 and found it to be clean and well kept with stunning views of the ocean. From the beginning, the hosts were more than helpful in planning the trip and upon arrival we were treated with dessert and a card as I was getting married... can't get better service than that!

spacious, welcoming and what a view!

  • 5 of 5

It was glorious, from the welcoming bottle of wine and apple crumble to the amazing selection of board games and overall comfort of the home. Then there are the miles of beach front and stunning ocean views. It fit the eight of us easily and a wonderful time was had by all!

Stunning ocean view, beautiful cottage with lots of deck space.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the cottage, it had everything that we needed . There was a bottle of wine to welcome us and it is very much appreciated.

The youngsters enjoyed the kayak and paddle board and they liked the bunk beds. I will definitely stay in this vacation house again. I will honestly say that the house can get hot and stuffy . You have to leave open the door to get air circulation but you dont want the bugs to get in.

Owner's Response: Glad that you enjoyed your stay despite some of the hot sunny days you experienced on the coast that week. Luckily it is always cool in the mornings and cools down in the evenings! We do have 2 ceiling fans that help circulate the air in the afternoon and leaving the bedroom doors open (all have screens on the windows) also significantly helps with circulation. The shady part of the deck is also a good spot to cool down, or, a quick dip in the ocean! We have plans to add a screen to the new French doors so hopefully this will help as well.

Beautiful Location, Nice Space

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The layout of the cabin is really conducive to visiting and having kids run around. We appreciated the "homey" feel which made it very comfortable. The location was great. We really liked the outdoor shower with an amazing view.

A wonderful location, peaceful and beautiful. The property was comfortable and spacious

  • 4 of 5

Great time had by young and old. Loads of wildlife including bald eagles, sea otters and the odd humming bird seen from our very window, large well furnished deck or pretty garden or strolling along the quiet road where we met friendly locals walking their dogs. Beautiful beaches steps from the property with wonderful logs washed up and tiny crabs by the hundreds hiding under stones near the sea. More lovely beaches everywhere along the coast. Cars were essential for getting to these and for visiting little towns up the sunshine coast of which our favourite was Gibsons, which was also the nearest. Val and Geoff were great hosts, very responsive if needed, and had provided lots of thoughtful touches. We stayed two weeks and had glorious weather for our family reunion.
