“A romantic stay”
Reviewed 4 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed in the Oceanside suite for New Year's Eve (just one night) and it was great. When we got there, the hot tub was ready and the fireplace was on. Both features made this such a cozy stay in winter. The proprietors really thought of everything - there was nothing lacking in the suite and there was even a bottle of wine on the table for us! Wish we had stayed longer, but for the short time we were there, it was absolutely perfect. I recommend this place wholeheartedly!

“Relaxing and tranquil setting”
Reviewed 4 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Very accessible to Sechelt for last-minute shopping.

The Island Suite was very well equipped and offers a spectacular view from the living areas as well as the deck. The bed was comfy, the suite snug, cozy and private. The complimentary bottle of white wine was a special treat as well as the assorted snacks provided by the hosts, Doreen and Doug.

Whether the tide was in or out, a walk along the beach provided a closer look at the sea life along the shore. A full moon on Christmas night was a breathtaking sight.

I highly recommend Absolute Heaven for a relaxing getaway during any time of year.

“A True Slice of Heaven”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed for 4 nights at the end of September and it was the perfect relaxing setting for our vacation. Doug and Doreen were very helpful and wonderful hosts. The suite was beautiful, cozy with a gorgeous view and wheelchair accessible which was perfect! We will definitely be back

“Their name says it all!”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Stayed in the Oceanside suite for 5 nights last week. This place truly is a little slice of heaven. The grounds are beautiful, the suite is immaculate and the view is breathtaking. We can't wait to come back next year and bring our adult kids and granddaughter- she's going to love the private sandy beach. Just a couple hours from our home and probably one of the most relaxing vacations I have had! Highly recommend this place!

My husband & I enjoyed 4 nights at Absolute Heaven last week. It was fantastic…from wine to homemade soap, Doug & Doreen have thought of it all. The suite overlooking the ocean is perfect along with the great workout room & hot tub. The views are outstanding and it was so private & peaceful, we would have loved to stay longer. Super hosts that are such a pleasure to deal with, we hope to return next year! Hopefully the whales will come for a visit next time. Thanks again for a great vacation.

“Perfect Time on the Sunshine Coast”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We spent the second part of an all-too-short Canadian vacation at Absolute Heaven. After spending several days in Vancouver, the inn was a great change--quite, scenic, and restful. The views from the suite (and the oceanfront spa) were wonderful. We enjoyed watching the changing colors and kept a sharp lookout for whales (sadly, we didn't see any ... maybe next time!). We *did* find some bald eagles in the hills near Sechelt, so Laurie was able to cross that item off her bucket list. Doug and Doreen are great hosts--very friendly and helpful, and totally respectful of our privacy.

We would absolutely (no pun intended) recommend the inn to our friends.

The only thing that could be improved (for those who have read this far) is the wifi, which was pretty slow and a bit spotty. We were able to connect, but not very well. There's much better wifi downtown at the local coffee house.

We are pleased you enjoyed yourselves and it was pleasure to meet you. Sorry about the wifi. Telus has been upgrading their lines in the area which has lead to periodic interruptions with our connection.
