It Will Probably Be Booked!

  • 5 of 5

We were four adults and one 14-year old, and we loved it! The cottage is comfortable, well equipped, and open and spacious, with great windows (and comfortable seating) overlooking part of Shoal Channel. Unfortunately, the air was filled with smoke from fires in BC, but there was still plenty to see from this nice vantage. The garden is beautiful and extremely well-kept, complete with a stream, pond, waterfall, water lilies, and Koi. Oh, and fresh berries! A complimentary jar of delicious, from the garden, blueberry/grape/lavender I believe it was, homemade preserves was awaiting our arrival. The location is an easy walk along Marine Drive to the town centre, restaurants, shops, the landing, and numerous gelato flavors in one shop! The owners were great, and Dan gave the perfect amount of attention before and during our stay. It was great to be back in Gibsons, and staying at Dragonfly Cottage made it that much better. We have our "go to" place, but it will probably be booked!

Very comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

Dragonfly Cottage is beautiful, very clean and has all the amenities you could need. Dan was an excellent host, meeting us upon arrival, giving us suggestions for places to visit in Gibsons and very quick to respond to questions by text during our visit. He even dropped off a baking dish for us when there wasn't one in the kitchen. It's on a main road so a little noisy with cars at night if sitting outside but very convenient walking distance to the centre of town. We would stay here again if visiting Gibsons!

A Beautiful Cottage Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Dragonfly Cottage. The space is beautiful, clean, and filled with light. Its rustic bones marry perfectly with its top-notch finishes. Steps from the beach, dining, coffee, and anything else that you could possibly need. Very helpful and friendly hosts. We will come back again for sure.
