“Excellence yet again”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Yet again Absolute Heaven is...well...absolute heaven. I love this place for the views, the hot tub overlooking the ocean and the oh so comfy, cozy bed. I love being so close to the ocean, especially when the beach feels like a private get away. The hosts are friendly but not in your face. Perfect for a nice quiet get-away.

“Location is great, but too expensive”

Great location in Sechelt, with fantastic views over the ocean. Stayed in the cottage for 1 night, which has plenty of space and ok / average standard. This is no traditional B&B as breakfast comes at extra costs. Even without breakfast option, this was the most expensive night on our B&B tour through Alberta and BC and because of that and very pos reviews on tripadvisor our expectations were high, perhaps too high. Free bottle of wine is a nice touch, but unnecessary, and would have preferred complimentary breakfast. Access to washing machine is a great plus. Still, too expensive for what is offered.

We are sorry you misunderstood our accommodation when you booked. Absolute Heaven is not a traditional B&B as the name Absolute Heaven Oceanfront Suites indicates. Featured are private suites. You also may not have understood, as posted on the home page, that the breakfast is an option which is offered as a service to our guests. In doing a review of nightly rates for waterfront accommodations in Sechelt you will find that Absolute Heaven Suites is comparable to all other waterfront accommodations.

“Spectacular view and excellent location”
Reviewed 8 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

First time we visited sunshine coast, we fell in love with the view of "Absolute heaven bed and breakfast". We stayed there 3 nights at the Island view suite. I can't describe the view in words----let me try --it is absolute heaven!! We drove around the area and to us this place has the best scenery. But the beauty is in the eye of beholder. It is conveniently located near grocery and shops. When we were planning to visit Sunshine coast we tried to book few other places.This time we also drove by to check their locations. We found out some of them are situated very high from the the beach and their driveways are also very steep.For us we have some back and leg pain, so absolute heaven was perfect for us.Our host Doug and Doreen made our stay very comfortable. The suite is equipped with a full kitchen and is spic and span. We got all the comfort of staying at a hotel but in a home setting. My 16 year old was happy because he got the full gym to exercise in. Also, they have a library of books and movies. They also booked us a boat tour with Mermaid Tour's and the tour was excellent. We enjoyed our whole trip.

“A vacation for body mind and soul”
Reviewed 4 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Every aspect of this accommodation and Doug and Doreen's hospitality was more than we could have imagined. The quiet, independent properties give you privacy with the confidence and convenience of knowing that the owners are just next door. The grounds are beautiful, the views spectacular and the sense of well being hits you the moment you walk through the door. Easy to get to the store, easy access to the beach and easy to relax and unwind.

“Hospitality at its best”
Reviewed 3 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

person found this review helpful

We spent 4 days @ absolute heaven with our two sons (3&6) and enjoyed every minute. The location on the waterfront and the layout of the suite and property are fantastic. Between the lawn, hot-tub and sandy play area on the property and adjacent natural rock & pebble beach replete with driftwood, the boys had a ball and we were able to relax. The suite was clean and well laid out. My only suggestion to Doug is for a more comfortable sofa bed, which he seemed happy to get the feedback, and knowing his commitment to making customers happy, I'd be surprised if it hasn't been replaced already. Doug and Doreen went out of their way to make us all feel welcome, including small touches like place settings for kids on arrival and sharing fresh smoke salmon and the day's crab catch. -All went a long way to making the visit extremely memorable. We will be back to visit again next year for sure.

Thank you for letting us know about the sofa bed. We have installed a brand new 4" foam mattress and there is also a 3" feather bed topper available for more comfort. Our customers are important and we are very glad when they let us know how we can improve their stay.

thanks again!

“Hospitality and Nature at its Best”
Reviewed 2 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

What a beautiful place! We learned about Absolute Heaven completely by fluke, while reading about Doug’s 1957 Corvette in the Driving section of our local newspaper. We were planning a Vancouver mainland/island trip at the time and when Absolute Heaven was mentioned, for some reason, we decided that we would spend our last two nights there. We couldn’t have made a better decision. We stayed in the Oceanside Suite. This place is immaculate. When you enter the unit, you are greeted with a lovely bottle of white wine (their own brew and it’s delicious…) sitting on the kitchen table and snacks on the counter. The rooms are spacious, the bed is super-comfy and you have your own bbq. The grounds are beautifully maintained. Doreen and Doug paid so much attention to detail that I don’t know where to begin. In the bathroom, there are bath towels as well as separate towels for you to use at the beach, there are lovely soaps, there is a tub AND a separate shower. There’s a radio in the kitchen and a pair of binoculars to take full advantage of the gorgeous ocean views. Seemingly small things, but exactly what we would have at home. Everywhere you look, it’s apparent that Doug and Doreen really care about their guests. This is the place to stay for complete relaxation. Be sure to ask Doug to see the Corvette – it’s stunning. Really, when was the last time you saw white-wall tires? And, those of us of a “certain” age who remember The Beachcombers should be sure to stop just down the road in Gibsons for a photo op at Molly’s Reach. The bottom line: Absolute Heaven is absolutely wonderful!!
