We are a family of three and spent two nights in the Oceanside suite with our seven-year-old daughter. The moment we arrived on the property and Doug greeted us in the driveway we felt relaxed (coming after busy days in Vancouver). The view was incredible, the beach was a perfect playground for our daughter, and we decided right away to spend the whole next day at Absolute Heaven reading, playing games, and exploring the rocky coast below. A local grocery store is only three minutes away and the kitchen is well-stocked for any cooking needs.
Our stay was flawless: Doug and Doreen were great hosts, we had plenty of privacy, the room was sparkling clean, and we had a blast. Already starting to plan a 2015 visit.
We are a family of 4 with two 11 year old boys. We stayed at the Island View unit. It was very roomy with a full kitchen and a separate bedroom. The pullout bed is typically not the most comfortable thing, but our boys thought that it was one of the most comfortable ones that they ever slept in. The place was clean and really well kept, and we felt at home right away.
The garden was full of flowers where many humming birds came all the time, and the beach in front of their house was very nice and warm. We saw seals popping their heads out, eagles flying and a pod of orcas in one week!
Doug and Doreen were always friendly and helpful. When we were complaining about how expensive a fishing trip would be, they did some research for us and gave us the information of another fishing charter. They also gave us some very fresh vegetables from their garden, which we enjoyed in our meals.
We immensely enjoyed our stay there and would love to come back!
Our stay started with a very warm welcome from the owners of the appartment. They've been very friendly and helpfull during the time we'd been in Sechelt.
The appartment is in mint condition and the view is just awesome. Everything was clean and equiped with what you need.
For sure not the last time we'd been in this apparment.
We stayed here with our teenagers at the end of July. There is a lovely smell of roses as you walk down the driveway to our private rental suite. The suite was clean and had everything we needed. The views are breath taking and there is easy, walk out access to our patio, garden, hot tub and beach. Swimming was wonderful with very little current and perfect temperature. Our hosts were charming and friendly and even bought us some fresh caught crab cooked with melted garlic butter on our first night. The location is central yet private and peaceful. I have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation to others and will definitely go back

This place is peaceful, beautiful, clean and private. Doreen and Doug were fabulous hosts... pleasant and generous. Thanks for the wine and fresh crab!!! Im so glad we chose this place. Would love to return!! Best view!
My husband and I needed a retreat to relax and replenish. Our ocean view suite was just perfect for the 3 nights we stayed! The property was well maintained and had such lovely flowers everywhere! Doug and Doreen were the best! They knew when to come talk to us and when to give us our privacy. They provided awesome tips on activities, grocery shopping and local eateries. We went on short hikes and walks, lounged in the hammock and lawn chairs while reading or snoozing, and jumped into the hot tub just before sunset where we could look out across the waters to the Trail Islands. We will definitely refer this little piece of "heaven" to our friends and family.
My husband and I and our 4.5 month old daughter stayed two nights at this lovely property and we had to write a review! The owners Doug and Doreen are wonderful and really take pride in their property. The suite was spotless and well decorated, and the flowers and landscaping are beautiful. We took some great family photos with the flowers and the beach! Each of the little personal touches in the suite are so thoughtful. There are even rubber duckies for the bathtub!!! We stayed in the lower oceanfront suite with an amazing view and access to the beach. The kitchen is perfect with all the necessities and things like tinfoil and salt/pepper in the cupboards! The bed was very comfy and they provided a high chair and pack and play for us. The biggest bonus was that Doreen cooked us a gluten free breakfast!!! What a treat! It is this above and beyond kind of hospitality that really makes this absolute heaven. We had a wonderful stay and will definitely go back again!!!
