____________________

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 offer homemade granola, baked goodies and freshly roasted coffee for our 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.

The living room, during the summer months, has blackout curtains for when the sun makes its five am appearance!

____________________

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

A member of a Canadian car sharing program (such as MODO)? Save on ferry fees. Book a car on the Coast and enjoy access to a Van, a Hybrid, a Compact or a Truck at great rates through Coast Car Coop. Two car sites are within a 10 minute walk of our house. Ask us for additional details!

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire parking area in front of the garage for their vehicle, use of all patio furniture and the grassy grounds in front of the one-bedroom apartment suite.

Other things to note
While the unit is on the first floor, there are about eight concrete steps up to the front door which may not be ideal for people who have moderate mobility issues (like a hip replacement).

The house is located in the middle of a hill. If you are traveling by foot or enjoy a good walk, be prepared to elevate your heart rate either heading out or coming home!

Also, the unit is located on the first floor of our home. We try to be quiet and respectful, but there will be the occasion noise from above.

Location

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 it's 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 More Cafe in Lower Gibsons, 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 Blackberries and Whimsy in Lower Gibsons, Embellish in Upper Gibsons and the Mosiac Market in Davis Bay (a short and worthwhile jaunt up the coast).

The Sunshine Coast is known for it's 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 and Blackfish pub in upper Gibsons.

During the summer, Lower Gibsons comes alive with music on the weekends, a Sunday farmer's market and a Friday public market. There are festivals such as the Sea Cavalcade (late July) and the painting of the mandala in Robert's Creek.

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 blogger, my husband is a computer software engineer), we get to enjoy the little things that Gibsons has to offer like a midday treat at the local bakeries. Since we don't have a car, we walk almost everywhere and can be seen exploring coastal towns hand in hand. For further destinations, we take the bus or use our membership as Coast Car Co-Op members. There is a cat on site, our not-so-slender Random, but he isn't allowed in the suite and is quite shy of anyone beyond my husband and I. He's getting over it but just to let those allergic to cat know.
