About the property

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

Comfortably furnished, well equipped, spotless and in a prime central location in Gibsons Landing. This studio cottage is the 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 friendly resident puppy dogs, Racket -- a Yorkie, and spaniel cross -- Piper, can greet you.

The Little House in the Harbour is set on a hillside in a lush, mature garden with whimsical nautical accents. This luxurious, comfortable and spotless stand alone cottage situated at the top of the property on Persephone Lane adjacent to off street parking and its own private entrance from the lane way. The queen sized sleigh bed has luxury high thread count bedding and down duvet in winter. Step 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, toaster and a selection of Keurig coffee and teas. Relax at the end of the day in the oversized 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.

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! The property is fully licensed and insured.

The cabin was lovely, the hosts perfect, and Gibson’s charming.

The cabin is perfect for a two person getaway. It was clean, well arranged and everything we needed was thought of. Cozy, cute, comfortable. Easy walking distance to the village. Perfect!

Very nice cottage, well appointed and very nicely decorated. Great views of the harbour.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one week in August in this beautiful cottage . The owner met us on arrival, and was very friendly and helpful.

The cottage is pretty and appears to be recently renovated. The outside deck looks out over the garden and down over the neighbourhood to wonderful views of the harbour-a perfect spot for a coffee in the morning or a drink at night.

The property is within walking distance of most of the shops and restaurants, although it is a steep walk back from the retail area.

There's access to beaches, the marina and parks within a few minutes. We really only needed the car to explore further up the coast.

We do plan to return!

Owner's Response: I am so happy to hear you had a nice stay. The location is really convenient and it's super that you walked everywhere. Yes the one block uphill can be fun after dinner but it makes you earn your dessert from Mike's Gelato just down the street! It was a pleasure to have met you both and your gorgeous pup. Please come for a visit again anytime! Kind regards... Judy

Great location, charming suite

  • 4 of 5

It is a very comfortable suite, quiet but very close to the shore. High standards of cleanliness and attention to details. Judy is a great host. Kitchenette is more for quick breakfast and picnic prep.

Lovely setting and convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, very comfortable, and nicely appointed space. Very gracious host. About a 1 block walk to downtown. Located on a slope so the walk to downtown and back could be a challenge for arthritic knees.
