“Heavenly Haven”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

What a fantastic start to our Sunshine Coast holiday. Our suite (Bamboo Suite) in this B & B was extremely spacious with a walk-out to the expansive gardens. We never got tired of the beautiful view over the water. As B & B hosts ourselves, we really appreciated the tasteful artwork in the common areas, especially the dining room. And the food - well, it was exquisite and prepared lovingly by our fabulous host. A great experience.

This place is fantastic. We chose it for our business trip for the government rate, but it has much more than that going for it. Kathleen made us feel welcome from the moment we walked in, and was very accommodating of our needs to have two beds in each room. There were plenty of games, books, and movies to keep occupied, but the crowning achievement was the food. My god, was it ever good. We ate restaurant quality food on a sunny patio with fresh brewed fair trade coffee and a view of eagles to keep us company. There was also a beautiful beach within easy walking distance, and blackberries bushes for snacking. We all highly recommend this B&B. Our stay could not have been better.

I been travelling through Gibsons for many years, this time for a family reunion. I'll treat myself to one of B&B's here, they have a good reputation on the Coast, now I know why. Secret Beach BB was a good as any hotel I have ever stayed, if not better, They live up to and beyond my expectations. My suite was spacious, tastefully decorated, quiet and private. Where else would you have a gracious hostess that is in tune with guests needs and have a gourmet breakfast included! How decadent. My lucky day happened to be eggs benny (I believe the meals change daily) fresh fruit and the best coffee on the Sunshine Coast. I am sure I polished off the entire Carafe! Take the time to wander their gardens and sit in the gazebo draped with greenery and feel the breeze from the ocean to cool you on a warm day. The hummingbirds are plentiful and apparently so are the deer. I did not see them, although, I am assured they are around. I will definitely be back to Secret Beach BB, a spacious oasis.

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights in July. We had the Bamboo suite on the ground floor, a lovely big room with an ensure (big bath) and doors opening onto the back garden. Kathleen made us an excellent breakfast both mornings. This was wonderful value for money and we'd definitely stay here again.

The owner could not have done anything more to make our stay more enjoyable. Breakfasts were delicious, served on the deck over looking the beautiful grounds and seated to enjoy the spectacular view. Everything was as advertised on the website including a deer wandering on the property to munch on the trees! Kathleen and Peter pulled out all the stops in making our stay exceptional. The Palm suite was comfortable and roomy with beautiful wall hangings and a lovely window seat to sit and enjoy the view. Kathleen had wonderful suggestions on things to do and see. Overall, very relaxing, comfortable stay.

Room Tip: The Palm Suite is on the second floor and was a little warmer than the lower level but worth it for...

Summer 2012 - we stayed at Secret Beach Bed and Breakfast and loved it! Our hosts were wonderful, not minding our very late arrival as we wandered around the dark streets of Gibson's lost! The room was so very cosy, neat and attractive and the breakfast was delicious.

Kathleen has a great knowledge of music and we thoroughly enjoyed our conversations and stay!

Highly recommend!

It rained and it rained - outside. Inside was warm and cozy and oh, so friendly. Our stay over Christmas was most enjoyable (Christmas tree and all) and we felt part of Kathleen's and Peter's extended family. Kathleen pulled out all the stops to cater to our essential low-carb breakfasts over which we had many "healthy food" conversations. The view, when we could see it, was wonderful. The king bed was very comfortable. The kitchenette supplied all the tools, etc. we needed for a light lunch, and the large bathroom with its thoughtful amenities was just right for us. Loads of books to read and many jigsaw puzzles to do. The wireless internet worked well and was much appreciated. The location was off the beaten track which made it very quiet. We will certainly plan to return to Secret Beach B&B the next time we need a place to stay on the Sunshine Coast. Thanks to all the family for your unforgettable hospitality.
