This B&B is located close to the Ferry Terminal near Gibsons Landing on the Sunshine coast of British Columbia. It features an open concept home with dual patio doors to an extensive balcony / deck where breakfast is served. The balcony provides an amazing view across the strait to the mainland mountains and also provides access to a large hot tub around the side of the house. Our main floor suite was bright and airy with a large private balcony and an ensuite bathroom with a walk in glass enclosed shower.
The owners were very helpful and offered suggestions for day trips and local attractions. The breakfasts were simply amazing and made with locally grown ingredients. We enjoyed yogurt garnished with local fruit, home made fruit juice and smoothies, fresh homemade muffins, locally roasted coffee, belgain waffles, and delicious frittatas that were both light and fluffy.
There are plenty of places to visit in the area. For anyone who grew up watching the "Beachcombers" on CBC, a pilgrmage to Molly's Reach in Gibson's is a must. For those who like dining next to the water, the lower level of Grandma's pub or Smitty's oysterhouse are both recommended. And, for those who don't mind a longer hike, the "skookumchuck" rapids are well worth the walk, but be sure to check with a tourist office for the best viewing times as the rapids change constantly with the tides.
