The space
The Sweet Start Suite is a lovely one bedroom/one bathroom self-catering lower level private vacation suite located in Gibsons, BC on the Sunshine Coast.

We operate with a Town of Gibsons Business Licence.

Please note that at this time, we are not able to take long term or far-out reservations. Thank you.


THE BASICS: The Sweet Start B&B - Suite offers a comfortable home away from home for two. It is a single-storey, first floor unit with a private entrance. We live above the unit but are quiet and respectful of our guests. The unit has free Wi-Fi and is right on the busline for carless travelers. It is self-catering but we do like to bake and will often have fresh, homemade goodies for guests.


LIVING AREA: The cute suite offers a spacious living room, complete with a big screen television, a full sofa, and a dining area for your relaxing enjoyment. To further your downtime on the coast, the unit is well stocked with reading material and games.


KITCHEN: If you are looking to cook a few of your meals while on vacation, our galley kitchen contains a stove, refrigerator and microwave. The cupboards are stocked with your basic culinary needs including dishes, pots, pans, utensils, spices and a coffee maker!


BEDROOM: Dreams are definitely sweeter on the coast in our luxurious king-sized bed. There is a dresser and a walk in closet for your clothing storage needs.

The bedroom window has blackout curtains to ensure a full night's sleep, especially during summer when the sun rises at 5am.


WASHROOM: Our washroom offers guests a tub and shower combo. There is towels, shampoo, conditioner, soap and a hairdryer for use during your stay.


LAUNDRY: The unit includes a stacked washer and dryer for your use.


LOCATION: Our rental is located near Gibsons Way and is accessible via the bus system, which originates at the ferry terminal. We are 7km from the ferry and in the heart of it all. Lower and upper Gibsons is a short walk (which does involve a bit of a steep hill climb either direction).

There is off street parking right in front of the home for those traveling with a car.


SELF CATERING: While we currently don't offer to make you breakfast, we do like to bake and often have arrival goodies for guests!


WALKABILITY: Thinking about going carless on the coast? It's doable. The bus takes you straight from the terminal to our street.

Where you’ll be

Gibsons, British Columbia, Canada

The Sunshine Coast, although part of mainland BC, is a beautiful area that has a bit of laid-back island-esque charm.

With a view of the sound, our vacation rental is located in a unique place between upper and lower Gibsons on the Sunshine Coast. In either direction, we are within walking distance of many of the shops, restaurants, and pubs that give this small fishing village its local character. Well, as long as you don't mind a little hike!

From the famous Molly's Reach restaurant from 'The Beachcomber' TV series to the tasty treats of Sandy's Bake Shoppe, the best of the Coast is only a few minutes away. In Upper Gibsons, there are grocery stores, thrift shops, a single-showing movie house, and even a curling rink -- all just a short walk or a few minutes drive away.

In addition to walking, Gibsons offers the outdoor enthusiast their choice of adventure during the summer. From kayaking to sailboating to SUPs, hitting the water is easy with the marina a short distance away.

If you are into shopping and looking for that special unique item, Gibsons has several stores to strike your fancy, including Swish and Whimsy in lower Gibsons.

The Sunshine Coast is known for its art and hosts an Art Crawl (October). The region has the most artist per capita out of Canada. The 'Purple Banner Route' (Summer) allows visitors to drop in and see jewelers, potters, painters and photographers in their studio. Plus, there are a number of galleries located in lower Gibsons, plus the museum.

There are an assortment of pubs and restaurants for your dining pleasure, including the Persephone Brewing Company on North Road, Gibsons Tapworks in Lower Gibsons and Blackfish pub in upper Gibsons.

The true beauty of the area comes from the laid back, comfortable nature of the region. The people you pass on the street will say hello and everyone is charming. It's a place to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the city and reconnect with yourself.

Hello! Our names are Mike and Weegee and we are the proud owners of the Sweet Start B&B. The two of us are actually imports from Portland Oregon where we met on a dragon boat. Once our padding obsession had run its course, we decided to embark on our next great adventure -- life north of the border. We packed up and moved to Canada in 2011. From Commercial Drive to the Sunshine Coast, our time in British Columbia has been a great adventure that I (Weegee) routinely blog about.

The two of us work from home (I am a backyard coffee roaster, my husband is a computer software engineer). Which means we get to enjoy the little things that Gibsons has to offer like a midday treat at the local bakeries. We walk almost everywhere and can be seen exploring coastal towns hand in hand.
