  • Wonderful beach holiday but would also be awesome in winter! You will NOT be disappointed!

    "My husband and 2 late teen/adult age children just got back from an incredible vacation at Mark and Barb's beautiful cabin in Halfmoon Bay! The pictures don't do it justice! This is a low bank waterfront property RIGHT ON the beach (its a bit rocky as most are on the Sunshine Coast - bring your watershoes) and a big front lawn DIRECTLY off the beach. They had 2 kayaks and a canoe which we could use which we definitely did - it was awesome! The beach was great for walking and collecting shells, rocks, and driftwood. We brought our own lounge chairs and spent the afternoon enjoying the sun on the front lawn but never felt too hot because of the beautiful ocean breeze. If we did, the ocean was lovely to swim in. We also built a campfire on the beach right in front of the lawn one evening which was so beautiful. The great room and kitchen of the house may have the quaint woodsy look of a cabin as seen in the pictures, but don't let the pictures deceive you, it not only has tons of windows overlooking the breathtaking view, it has all the amenities of home - a kitchen with a dishwasher, microwave, tons of dishes, pots and pans, whatever you could need; a TV with lots of cable channels, a fireplace, even games provided; and a lovely deck with a BBQ and table, chairs and umbrella overlooking the amazing view. On the upper level, the look was totally modern with 3 good sized bedrooms and a full bathroom - the master had a gorgeous view of the ocean. Also there is another bathroom downstairs off the lawn if you're in a hurry! Although the temperatures were starting to climb during our stay, the house is well shaded in the morning so never got too hot (except when we baked something in the oven but the fan they provided cooled things off nicely). In the winter, each of the bedrooms has their own thermostat so I'm sure it would be just as beautiful and cozy. Although, as the owners say, they have a work building on the property that they may be at during the day, it is totally separate and well behind the house - we never saw them until we checked out. It definitely felt like we had our own place but it was nice to have them available to orient us and we knew they were available if we needed anything. Our plan was to make this our base and explore the Sunshine Coast but we were so enamored, we never left the house! So relaxing and comfortable. A truly great vacation!"

  • Wonderful Stay!

    "I absolutely LOVED my 2 month stay in the Carriage House! The property the house sits on is stunning with a rolling yard surrounded by forest and occasional deer visitors. Sitting out on the deck for your morning coffee or afternoon happy hour is simply divine! The carriage house is clean, private and has everything you need to enjoy your stay in Gibsons. I slept great every night in the pillow-top king sized bed and ate like a queen in the fully equipped kitchen. Everything you need to cook your own meals is there for you...even a selection of commonly used spices! The Carriage House is spacious and luxurious providing both style and utility. It has huge and beautiful full-log beams throughout and a stunning, tiled shower with great water pressure that looks out over the yard. The couch was comfy as ever and the Telus TV and Netflix were great for nights in when the "sunshine coast" does not quite live up to its name (I stayed through a particularly rainy March haha). I also really liked the coffee table that doubles as a massive Cribbage Board! My boyfriend and I also loved taking advantage of the board games provided with the place. I would HIGHLY recommend staying here either for a couples weekend getaway or for a long term stay. Mike is a fabulous host and is prompt to help when needed but otherwise takes a "hands-off" approach for the duration of your stay. The only thing that I would say about the property is that you probably want to have a car as it is ~2km out of town...I walked a few times and it took me about 25mins to get to downtown Gibsons. I would stay here again in a heart beat and would like to thank Mike for his hospitality and for being a tremendous host! I will definitely miss the Carriage House!"

  • Chillin' in Se a Star

    "A beautiful location and an amazingly chilled experience. The Cottage was extremely comfortable and the attention to detail made it Even more so. The deck in the evening with the glass effect fire pit made our stay really special. Marilyn and Ron made us feel really welcome and the information pack was extremely useful in finding our way around, and Marilyn went the extra mile in introducing us to our favourite eatery at Laverne's in Garden Bay. Overall a really memorable stay."
