SunCatcher Oceanside B&B
Ranked #8 of 19 Powell River B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 June 2014

This is our third visit to this wonderful B&B. Yvonne is a most gracious host, a gourmet cook and a wealth of information on what to see and do in the Powell River area. Our room was comfortable, spacious and very private. We were mesmerized by the boat traffic going up and down the sound, and the sunset over the water was spectacular! The garden is beautiful this time of year. Zoe, the dog, is quiet and gentle and always happy to greet you with a big tail wag! In all, a wonderful spot to spend a few days on the Sunshine Coast.

Room Tip: Both rooms are below the main level of the house (with a separate entrance) and are quiet. Great vie...

This was a lovely place to stay and Yvonne made us very welcome and relaxed. The room was well equipped, clean and comfortable and we had a lovely breakfast. You can walk down through the gardens to the beach and of course the sun sets are fabulous.

We returned to Yvonne's SunCatcher B&B with friends after having visited a few years earlier by ourselves. It's even better than we'd remembered. Fabulous breakfasts - and what a selection. An amazing view from rooms, private picnic table, breakfast, etc. And Yvonne is so friendly and welcoming. We'd have been back sooner except that her place is understandably in high demand and was full up last time we tried.

We point out that there is no "swimming pool", but Malaspina Straight right in front of the house was eminently swimmable - and we did! The last time we kayaked up and down the beach from her place. There is also no "fitness centre" but we got exercise running up and down the beach trail, and biking up to the farmland nearby. Those who have trouble with stairs or trails can drive down to the beach not far from her place.

We'll be back - if she's not booked out.

Didn't know what to expect of the Powell river area or this little B&B: what a delightful surprise in every respect! Yvonne is the perfect host - warm but not intrusive, efficient, organized, knowledgable, gracious & generous with her time & home. Beautiful verdant gardens overlooking the water, perched on a hillside, you can view the passing vessels or soaring bald eagle from beneath a green canopy. Yvonne, you've done it all right! Btw, the breakfasts were amazing too.

We had the absolute honour of staying with Yvonne and her beautiful dog Zoe for the Canada Day weekend! I cannot possibly express in words what a wonderful time we had.We received a wonderful greeting from Zoe even before we got out of our car. Yvonne herself was just amazing, very warm and welcoming and the extra touches that she provided everyday made this one of our most memorable holidays ever! From the stunning breakfasts, to the friendly conversation, Yvonne clearly has it all figured out and understands exactly how to extend her home to others and make them feel like family. The breathtaking view outside the room itself and the sound at night of seals splashing in the water added to the perfection of this place. I cannot say enough. I do have one complaint though, Yvonne you and Zoe made it VERY difficult to leave(my last words to you when we said goodbye). WE WILL BE BACK! You are missing out if you do not experience this place, and Yvonne and Zoe for yourselves!

Room Tip: Both rooms are beautiful. Be sure to leave your window open to hear the sounds of the waves and the...

Yvonne did a lovely job of making us feel at home. the breakfasts were fantastic and the view was to die for. Zoe, the resident dog was equally friendly, making sure to say hello and welcome you back from a day of adventures.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the SunCatcher for two nights in June 2013 and loved it! The host is so knowledgeable about the area and gave us so much insight on how best to explore Powell River and surrounding area. The room was comfortable, clean and had an amazing view of the ocean. We had a wonderful time sitting down by the beach and watching the sunset! Breakfast was sooo delicious...I over ate both days! We would definitely stay here again, highly recommended!
