“Wonderful relaxing stay”
Reviewed 1 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We can only agree with previous reviewers. It is aptly named. Doreen & Doug have thought of everything. We arrived at the end of a 3 week holiday in West Canada. We stayed in the Oceanside Suite, which is very spacious. The view out to sea is wonderful & we took full advantage of the private beach. Sitting in the hot tub looking out for seals was a lovely experience. The breakfasts were first class & Doug was very helpful in suggesting things to do locally. All in all a very enjoyable stay & the ideal place to relax. Our only regret is that we had no time to use the hammock! We have no hesitation in recommending it to friends.

“Just bring a toothbrush”
Reviewed 27 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Absolute Heaven has everything you need....just bring a toothbrush and a change of clothes! From bathrobes and slippers to food and beverages, including a lovely bottle of white wine--our hosts provided it all. Don't miss out on Doreen's fabulous breakfasts! They are creative and healthy (not too healthy!) feasts that include fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs right from her beautiful garden--served at your convenience. Although Doug and Doreen reside on the property, we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. They were unintrusive but available if you needed anything. The oceanfront is a bit difficult to walk (rocks, not sand) but it is a great launching point for a kayak and a small sandy beach area was created right on the property--again, Doug and Doreen have thought of everything!

“Everything you need for a perfect vacation”
Reviewed 11 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Doug and Doreen were perfect hosts! We had breakfast on the beach, went on daily adventures nicely outlined in our included information guide, recovered in the hot tub overlooking the ocean every night, and sat by the campfire on the beach as we listened to the sea lions play. Pretty incredible week!

“Wonderful Hosts”
Reviewed 8 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We recently stayed a week at Absolute Heaven, myself, my wife and two of our teenage sons. Doug and Doreen made us feel right at home, the suite was clean, well equiped and the bed was comfotable. The bottle of wine was a nice touch. The veiw is AMAZING and the hot tub looking over the bay just part of Heaven. We are looking forward to returning.......without the kids next time.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 5 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend to celebrate a wedding anniversary. The location along the sunshine coast is perfect, with every 'tourist hotspot' accessible in less than an hours drive, in one direction or another. The suite was great: clean, spacious, and with stunning views. The hosts were friendly but in no means obtrusive as some B&B owners can be! The delicious breakfasts were the icing on the cake. Overall this was probably the best B&B I have ever stayed in, and was perfect for a romantic weekend away from the city.

“The name says it all...”
Reviewed 29 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

This oceanside retreat is exactly what the name says. My husband and I and our 2 children have just returned from spending another fabulous week at Doug & Doreen's little piece of heaven. We visited them last year for a week and we agreed that this would be our yearly summer vacation spot. Everything you could possibly want is here. Beatiful scenery, ocean and stunning views from the islandview suite, and of course lovely hosts who tend to your every need and really make you feel like "home". We asked for breakfast one morning and we were treated to the most delicious pancakes, sausages, homemade scones, fruit and juice - with enough leftovers to eat throughout the day. We really had a relaxing week and can't wait to return again next year!

“The best place in Heaven!”
Reviewed 25 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

This place is amazing! Our hosts are friendly and wow can they cook the best breakfast! Using organic ingredients from their gardens...and the gardens are something to see!

Views from your suite are unobstructed with a short path on their property to their private sandy beach, grass area for kids to play as well. Fire pit was perfect for roasting marshmallows and simply being cozy under the stars.

Thank you to our host, Doug and Doreen, for making our stay the best experience we have had through our travels around the world!
