About the property

The Micro Cabin In Roberts Creek - 2 Minutes from the Beach!

As featured in Canadian Living magazine, Cottage Living magazine, and on the 604now's Bucket List for 2017, the Micro Cabin is nestled on a heritage homestead surrounded by lush garden and towering cedars. The ocean and the heart of Roberts Creek are two minutes away. We are located halfway between Gibsons and Sechelt, making it a perfect homebase to explore the Sunshine Coast from. Enjoy a solo retreat or a relaxing getaway for two while trying out tiny house living!

We built the 125-square-foot Micro Cabin after being inspired by the tiny house movement. Guests should be aware that this is a tiny cabin, which means - it is a tiny cabin! The space is small but bright and airy, with high ceilings and lots of windows and natural light. We think you'll find it to be carefully laid out and thoughtfully appointed. The full-size bed is made up with 100% cotton linens to ensure a good night's sleep. The kitchen is well stocked with all that you need to make something delicious. The bathroom is a fully tiled wet bath like that on a boat. There is plenty of outdoor space here on our private acreage to sit and daydream or finally start writing that novel. Relax at the picnic table with a mug of hot tea and watch the sunrise or gaze at the stars. If you're lucky you might see one of our resident deer and her two fawns wandering around the property. Black bears live here too!

Our small homestead is one of the oldest in Lower Roberts Creek on the Sunshine Coast. We live on the property in a farmhouse that was built in 1926 for the area's first schoolteacher. We look forward to sharing our slice of paradise with you.

About Karen Spicer

I'm Karen. Living in the rainforest in the whimsical and artsy community of Roberts Creek is my idea of paradise.

A perfect experience

  • 5 of 5

A perfect getaway from the chaos of the city. Used it as home base for 3 days of biking the Sunshine Coast's excellent DH and freeride trails. Couldn't have been happier with how cozy and comfortable the cabin was and how at home we felt as the property owners guests. We will be returning guests over and again

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed in the micro cabin over Thanksgiving weekend. We found the cabin to exactly as described in the listing. It is cozy but comfortable and well laid out for its size. It stayed nice and warm even on cool, rainy nights. Karen was a kind and very helpful host. She provided several suggestions of things to do in the area. On her recommendation, we ate at the Gumboot Cafe and Restaurant a few times during our stay which was delicious, had a beautiful walk in Cliff Gilker park, and even watched the sunset on a quiet beach down the road. The location was central and convenient for everything we had planned that weekend. I would stay here again on my next visit to the Sunshine Coast.

The Neighbourhood

Roberts Creek is a whimsical ocean-side haven for nature lovers, artists, and forward thinkers. If you consider yourself any of these, you'll fit right in around here!

Getting Around

Roberts Creek's beach, the Gumboot Cafe, Yoga By the Sea, and the peaceful forest paths and waterfalls of Cliff Gilker Park are just a two-minute drive away. It is a 15-minute walk or a 6-minute bike ride to the heart of Roberts Creek. We are on the main bus route, equi-distant between the towns of Sechelt and Gibsons (15 minutes by car). There is a very private secluded beach just down from us.

Other Things to Note

Getting to Roberts Creek from Vancouver is easy and fun! Take the Langdale ferry from Horseshoe Bay in North Vancouver. It's a 40-minute ferry ride for which you only pay one way (the return trip is free!). From the Langdale ferry terminal, we are just 10 minutes away by car, or a quick bus ride. We are easily accessible by public transit from the Langdale Ferry Terminal. If you're a cyclist, we are located in a perfect spot for a break.

Fun things to do in Roberts Creek include swimming at the dock at the local beach, checking out the mandala at Roberts Creek beach that is hand-painted each year by the locals, going for a walk in Cliff Gilker Park up the road, having local gelato at Lumpy's, and watching the sunset from the end of the pier.

There's also a nice hike about forty minutes from here at Smuggler Cove, snowshoeing up on Dakota Ridge, great burgers and sushi up in Madeira Park, self-guided private gallery tours, kayak rentals, or a visit to Persephone Brewery. Another neat thing to do is to venture all the way to the end of the peninsula to see some of the world's biggest standing waves at the Skookumchuck Narrows or stop by the Iris Griffith Nature Centre.

If you're feeling lazy, grab a bottle of wine from the General Store or make a mug of hot tea, wrap yourself in a cozy blanket and dive into a good book or sit on the end of the pier and watch for the grey or humpback whales that frequent our shore.
