We booked this bed & breakfast last minute in late September '13 after deciding to stay in Gibsons on a whim. With no hotels there we took a leap of faith and went B&B hunting. We have very high standards and have never stayed at a B&B before so we were not sure what to expect. After reading the stellar reviews and lucking out on availability for that night, we booked Soames Point online and boy, it exceeded our expectations.
The owners are very friendly but not intrusive. Judy greeted us upon arrival, gave us the tour, setup a breakfast time and then left us to enjoy the place. We are not usually chatty cathies but the owners are very likeable and we enjoyed conversing.
The suite has a nice open concept with big beautiful windows and ever amenity you would need (wifi, cable, coffee maker...etc.). My wife is a clean freak and I was relieved that everything was dust free and immaculate. It had tasteful furnishings and a cozy cool oceanside cottage like feel. After a pleasant night's sleep we woke up the following morning and enjoyed a nice basket of warm baked goods and homemade jam before heading out on the road for home.
I find it difficult to point out a negative from my experience. I feel guilty for saying it but the only "bad" thing I could think of was that the TV in the family room was a little too small for the size of the room (okay, I said it.). If that is the only thing wrong, than your in good shape.
We will most certainly consider Soames point for our next visit to the Sunshine Coast.
