“Tranquil weekend getaway”
Reviewed 19 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We stayed here for two nights in early December. It's just an hour away from downtown Vancouver, which is nice if you want a short relaxing vacation, but don't want to spend the majority of that time travelling. Captain J's is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the Coast - right at the waterfront but still very close to the ferry terminal, restaurants and shops. Cindy and John (and Dash!) were so warm and welcoming and made sure everything was set up for our stay. There were treats for us and the dog upon our arrival, which was a wonderful touch.

The beach was steps from the front door, and since we were there during the winter, it felt like we had it all to ourselves. The suite is fully stocked with just about everything you need and is such a cozy place that we were tempted to stay inside instead of exploring! There's not much better than a fireplace and the sound of waves outside on a cold, wet winter night.

We enjoyed our stay and can't say enough about Cindy and John's hospitality, and we look foward to returning for a visit in the summer.

“a small piece of paradise”
Reviewed 24 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We stayed at captain J's on September the 18th 2012. Unfortunately we only had time for 1night which was not enough. After checking in, we were surrounded by a beautiful view of the ocean. A cabin that had everything anybody ever wanted.
The host's John and Cindy had everything organized. Wine glasses ready, coffee, cream etc. Everything was ready for us.
We slept really well in the comfortable bed.
I was actually sad to leave in the morning. On our next trip to the sunshine coast we will plan to stay a few more day's and enjoy the first class hospitality.

“INCREDIBLE!!!”
Reviewed 8 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

This is a B&B but should be a BB&B....its beautiful - bright - and did I mention BEAUTIFUL!!! Cindy and John and their dog Dash greet you with a wonderful warm welcome to their home. The family history is quite something and let me say ....they've done John grandparents proud with what they have done here. The suite truly has a wonderful airy, beachy feel to it. Everything is spotlessly clean, the bed comfortable and to fall asleep to the sound of the waves is incredible. I hate to even write this review because I think this is truly a treasure that I don't want to share.........we've stayed at a number of B&B's on the sunshine coast but this one...........its special. I can't even begin to describe the incredible views as you sit on the deck. Every part of the suite shares this same incredible view. The pictures just don't do it justice. Book it and I promise you won't be disappointed!!

“Great Value and Better Hosts! :)”
Reviewed 21 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We spent part of our holiday at Captain J's and it was a wonderful experience. Both Cindy and John go out of their way to ensure that you have a great time. The suite has unbelievable views and you are right on the beach. The suite is very large, clean and has everything needed. Great location also will not disappoint!

“Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 30 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Captain J's Seaside Suite is the perfect getaway. From the friendly welcome, comfortable accommodations to the breathtaking views, we enjoyed not only our first visit in the the spring, but also a return visit in the summer. It has anything you may need for cooking in, as well as perfectly located for a short walk to the lower town site with quaint shops, eateries and the boat dock. Our hosts are warm, welcoming and very down to earth. The best part of the accommodations has to be the 5 steps out the door to the beach, where you can swim, walk, or have a nice beach fire with the perfect view.
