Loved the Dragonfly Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I spent the month of March here to visit our family and celebrate our 50th anniversary.

The Dragonfly Cottage was just perfect. It was very clean, quaint and cozy. The view of mountains, islands and ocean provided a million dollar view from the windows that stretched the full length of the front of the cottage. On rainy days we enjoyed the little fireplace. We made dinner many nights with our family and the kitchen was open and efficient.

The beautiful gardens surrounding the property reflect the joy and pride that Dan & Christine take in their little 'piece of paradise'!

We would recommend the Dragonfly Cottage to our friends in a heartbeat.

Dragonfly cottage is a great choice for a short or long stay.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully renovated cottage, centrally located so you can easily walk to downtown Gibson's. The property is extremely clean and comfortable with a full kitchen, separate bedroom and a second, quite private, sleeping space. The gardens are gorgeous and the entire property is charming. The main road location did not bother us - we were there in October so it was fairly quiet. We would both recommend and return to Dragonfly Cottage. Dan was very pleasant to deal with and responsive.

Great Place to Stay in Gibsons

  • 5 of 5

The Dragonfly Cottage exceeded our expectations. It is so clean, quaint, cozy and well equipped. The view of the sea from both the dining room windows and the deck, along with a well situated gas fireplace, make the cottage ideal for a relaxing holiday. It is very close to shops, good restaurants and seaside walks. Highly recommended.

Terrific Seaside Retreat for the family!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four (two parents, two children under 7) were very fortunate to be able to spend three days / two nights at Christine and Dan's cottage. The rental is a beautifully renovated 1910s home, and as you can see from the pictures tastefully decorated in every detail, and the gardens / landscaping has to be seen in person to be fully appreciated.

One bedroom, and other sleeping area for perfect for our needs. The kitchen was fully equipped plus an outside BBQ, making eating at the cottage very easy. A number of excellent restaurants are nearby, offering choice if you prefer to dine out.

Access from the ferry is direct via one road, and allows very quick walks to Molly's Reach and the pier area, or easy access to fresh food markets. The beach is only a block away, and the tide changes make it an interesting place for kids to search out small crabs, starfish, or even some swimming in a secluded area.

Christine and Dan make excellent hosts, and made the stay a special one for our family. This property is their joy and it shows by how it presents. We have enjoyed showing our pictures to family and friends and recommended to everyone we can.

Amazing Stay at Dragonfly Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My parents came from Ottawa to visit my husband and I in Vancouver and we spent a nice long weekend in Gibsons. We had an amazing time at the Dragonfly cottage and wish we had stayed longer!

The location is perfect, across the street from a pet-friendly beach and just a few minutes walk into the most adorable town ever. My parents are elderly and my mom can't walk for long periods of time, so this was ideal. My dad loves to fish, and it was just one bus to Davis Bay, where he hung out all day with other people fishing and crabbing.

There's one bedroom and another sleeping area, which is pretty much a bedroom without a door. It was perfectly fine for our needs and we would definitely stay there again. My parents have already recommended it to my sister and her husband for when they visit!
