About the property

One Bedroom Suite in the Heart of Lower Gibsons

Comfortably furnished, well equipped, spotless and in a prime central location in Gibsons Landing. This one bedroom vacation rental suite is a perfect choice in any season for work or play while visiting the Sunshine Coast of BC.

The small town of Gibsons, with just under 5000 residents, is a hidden gem in Canada's temperate, pacific coastal rainforest. It's hard to believe that the cosmopolitan city of Vancouver is only a 40 minute ferry ride away through the protected waters of the Howe Sound. DID YOU KNOW?: You only pay for the ferry ride coming here --- it's a FREE return trip to go back to Horseshoe Bay, West Vancouver!

Once you arrive at the Langdale ferry terminal on the Sunshine Coast your accommodation is a short 6 minute drive by car or hop on the city bus to Gibsons Landing. Public transit routes are nearby so if you prefer there is no need to have a car. One block up the hill brings you to South Fletcher Road and your destination. Look for the bright yellow and orange sailboat and the custom designed rope fence and you've arrived!

Our resident puppy dogs, Racket -- a Yorkie, and spaniel cross -- Piper, can greet you or keep the 'anchor gate' closed and the garden space is for you, a good book and the hummingbirds.

The Little House in the Harbour is set on a hillside in a lush, mature garden with whimsical nautical accents. The Beachcomber cabin is a ground level suite with large windows and overlooks an outdoor deck and gurgling stone water feature with views of the active boat traffic in the marina below. There is a private, keyless lock entry, full kitchen with dishwasher and a bright sunroom. The bedroom has a comfortable queen bed with luxury bedding and down duvet in winter. The living area has a twin daybed with an additional twin trundle bed below for an extra 3rd and 4th guest. You will also enjoy the two electric fireplaces to help keep you cozy, the cable television with Netflix and high speed wireless internet.

The well laid out and thoughtfully appointed accommodation is just steps from the marina and the quaint, historic seaside village of Gibsons Landing. I chose this property specifically for the amazing location for visitors. Once you experience it you will see that there are few properties that have such a fantastic location close to shops, pubs, beaches, hiking trails, restaurants, the Gibsons Public Market with Marine Education Centre, kayak rentals, water taxi to Keats Island and the craft beer establishment, Gibsons Tapworks. Just stroll everywhere while taking in the picturesque marina below.

Gibsons Landing is a warm and welcoming community where you will enjoy a genuine small town, seaside experience. Check the calendar and make your reservation today. I look forward to being your host and will help you have a remarkable visit to this Pacific Coast paradise. I hope to hear from you soon!

Judy's place is wonderful. It's in a great location, walking distance to water, restaurants, music, etc. The house has a beautiful view of the water with a wonderful outdoor patio with seating and tables to view the sunset, eat meals, chat, read, etc. Her place is immaculate, very welcoming and comfortable. Judy was very accessible if we had questions and highly respectful of our privacy. We would strongly recommend Judy's place!

Fantastic getaway

We loved our stay at the Little Harbour house...the place was exceptionally clean, comfy and cozy with all of the needed amenities. Restaurants, breweries, market and shops were all within easy walking distance. Judy was a wonderful hostess, professional and personable. We look forward to returning. Judy, thanks again for your kindness.

Wonderful spot to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this lovely one bedroom (plus daybed) suite. Everything was spotless and comfortable, and everything we needed was there; we loved the decor and it is evident that guest comfort is the top priority for Judy. She was available and accommodating and she gave us our space. You cannot beat the location of this suite for access to all Gibsons has to offer. We will certainly be back!

Thanks Judy!

Lovely little house in the harbour!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely, warm home! The deck, landscaping and view was amazing. The suite was very clean and well loved. We had all amenities that we could possibly want as well as a few extras for our pup. It is a very short walk to the beautiful, quaint village of Gibsons. All in all a wonderful get away! We will definitely recommend to friends and family! Thank you Judy for your hospitality!

Nothing beats this for a restful vacation!

A beautiful, quiet cottage with a beautiful view of the harbour in Gibsons. The location is great, being just one block from the pier and the best ice-cream parlour.

About Judy

I'm a Vancouver city girl born and raised but now call Gibsons my home. After having spent some time here on the beautiful Sunshine Coast I knew this was to be the next chapter in my life. The Little House in the Harbour has been an active vacation rental for more than ten years. It was lovingly built and cared for by the previous owners and I strive to continue their tradition of gracious, west coast hospitality. I look forward to hearing from you!

Judy purchased this house in 2015

Why Judy chose Gibsons

You will love the location of this property! Walk one block down the hill to the centre of lower Gibsons. Visit the famous 'Molly's Reach' restaurant or Gramma's pub or Smitty's Oyster bar while enjoying the stunning marina, harbour and mountain views. Kayak, boat and paddle board rentals are here too. Feel like gelato? Indulge in a scoop at Mike's just steps around the corner. When you're ready to relax, retreat to your 1 bedroom suite with glassed in porch, private front deck with fabulous marina view, quaint garden, fully equipped kitchen and comfy beds with luxury linens.

What makes this house unique

You will marvel at this quaint sea side village at your doorstep. The beachside feel of this cabin is revealed at every turn. The enclosed glass solarium with water and mountain views will be your favourite place for reading with your morning coffee. Your private front deck surrounded by gardens and complete with a gurgling stone water feature is the place to watch the marina below.
