About the property

Studio Cottage just steps to restaurants, shops, cafes & Gibsons marina

This comfortably furnished, spotless, well equipped private cottage at 'Little House in the Harbour' is in a prime central location in historic Gibsons Landing. With no stairs you have easy one level access to the cottage entrance. From your parking spot beside the cottage it's just 15 steps from your vehicle to the door. (Note: Cleaning fee and tax INCLUDED in the nightly rate)

The queen sized sleigh bed has luxury high thread count bedding and down duvet in winter. The cottage features vaulted ceiling with striking west coast timber details and solid hardwood oak floors hand washed after every guest! Step outside through the french doors onto your own private sun deck with lovely bistro set and rocking chairs. Enjoy views of the Gibsons marina, Keats Island, coast mountains and straight of Georgia. Prepare your morning coffee in the kitchenette complete with fridge, microwave, single burner electric induction hot plate, toaster and a selection of Keurig coffee and teas. Light the candles and relax in the romantic oversized two person soaker tub with the flickering fireplace nearby. Listen to commercial free music, watch sports or a movie on Netflix on the flat panel TV with a full selection of channels from TELUS TV. ** FOR YOUR SAFETY and peace of mind the suite is fully equipped with landline telephone, smoke detector, carbon monoxide detector and fire extinguisher. As well, all outdoor garden pathways and parking area are illuminated and stairways are equipped with handrails.

The property is set on a hillside in a lush, mature garden with whimsical nautical accents. The cottage is situated at the top of the property on Persephone Lane just steps from the marina and the quaint, historic seaside village of Gibsons Landing. 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.

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.

* Cleaning fee is INCLUDED in the nightly rate - not an extra charge.

* This property is fully licensed and insured.

* See the Beachcomber Cabin also available on this property at VRBO listing #728943.

Really enjoyed our weekend getaway here! We will be back, maybe to stay in the other suite when we bring our kids and dog along too :) The suite was very clean and comfortable and you cant beat the view and lovely garden in the morning with your coffee/tea or at night as the sun sets. Beautiful! You won't regret staying here thats for sure.
