My wife and I LOVED staying at Robert's + Beth's loft. It was an incredibly beautiful, inspiring space both inside and outside. Robert and Beth are extremely sweet and accommodating. Highly, highly recommend staying with them!

Staying at Robert & Beth's loft was an amazing experience. The loft itself is beautifully decorated, cozy, clean and bright. From inside you can peak into Robert's work shop, but he was more than happy to give us a grand tour. It was a really relaxing and secluded getaway, and the place proved to be an excellent jump of point to explore the surrounding area. Will definitely stay here next time we are back on the sunshine coast.

THIS is it. This IS it. This is IT. We've stayed at several Airbnb properties over the past several years, but this one rises to the top of the list far above the others. Why? Robert and Beth. The woodsy location in remote Roberts Creek on BC's Sunshine Coast is rejuvenating. The loft itself is spacious, comfy-cozy and well-appointed (after all, it's a friggin' art gallery with gorgeous sculptures and art). And the studio below inspired a little magic -- more on that in a sec. But what made for an exquisite visit was the hospitality delivered in oodles by Robert and Beth. If you stay here and don't spend time talking with this creative and inspiring couple, it's a missed opportunity. This trip was for my wife Karen's 50th birthday celebration and it was a surprise for her. She didn't know where we were going until we got there. I spoke with Robert and Beth prior to our arrival to make the weekend extra-special for Karen, and they exceeded my expectations. I talked separately with Beth and Robert, and both went out of their way to understand what would make the weekend memorable from a creative POV. We talked about options and agreed to an above-and-beyond-the-stay cost for Karen to spend time working with Robert in the studio. They went out of their way to create a special memory for people they had never met! It was over the top and greatly appreciated. In addition to the creative time in the studio, Robert brought out a map and recommended places to eat/visit during our time on the Sunshine Coast. We had such a fantastic time that we're already talking about a return trip in the fall. Although we only spent four nights at The Art Loft in Roberts Creek, it was a trip we'll always remember because of the overall experience and the people who made it possible. We can't thank Robert and Beth enough! There aren't enough superlatives to express our gratitude. Until next time (and there will be a next time)!

The ART Loft is much more than what we have expected. It was a place of relaxation and at the same time experience Robert's work of art. The photos does not do the place justice, it was far more impressive up close. Beth ans Robert were awesome hosts and we would definitely be back again.

We loved our stay at this beautiful unique property and studio. Beth and Rob are amazing hosts, they are incredibly interesting and thoughtful people. We were so excited to be their first Airbnb guests! We got a private tour of the glass studio and learnt about the process behind the incredible work they do. There are some beautiful waterfalls close by and the beach is a short drive away. We loved every min and look forward to our next Visit!! Such a cool place:)
