“Relaxing ocean view from large modern suite”

The owners Gaylene and Daniel were warm, gracious and friendly hosts. They made our 3 day stay very special. The quiet and peaceful location with an amazing view overlooking the ocean and small islands is very picturesque. The many gardens, walkways, multiple outdoor seating areas, and wildlife added to the serenity of the property.

The suite is a self contained unit that is the entire lower level of the home. The dining and living room overlook the ocean and wharf through large windows and sliding glass doors which opens out to the huge private, covered deck area with glass railings. The two bedrooms are a good size with one having a king size bed, a great view of the ocean, and direct access to the deck. The full size kitchen has everything you need.

We enjoyed the many hummingbirds, bald eagles soaring above, gardens, and whimsical decorative touches throughout the property. The private wharf has a protected seating area if it's breezy. Watching the sunset from the wharf was very special. The paths around the property have motion sensing lights so staying down at the wharf until after sunset is safe.

The steep driveway down to the property could be an issue for timid drivers but the owners offer to drive your vehicle into your parking space when you need to. It looks more intimidating than it really is.

This is a great place to stay if you want to get away and experience life at a slower pace. The village of Madeira Park 10 minutes away has a grocery store, liquor store, bakery but not much else. There a few pubs in the area but don't expect much in the way of fine dining. Francis Point Provincial Park close by has an easy 2 hour hike along the ocean with great places to stop along the smooth rocks.

We were very pleased with our stay and look forward to visiting them again.

Thanks for the glowing review Carsten. We also enjoyed having you and Melanie here. Hope to see you again in not too distant future, but maybe longer next time, so you could see some of the other attractions here, like Princess Louisa Inlet and maybe take in a Blues and Jazz festival later in the year. Gaylene and Daniel (PS: we were impressed with your knowledge of local bird life!)

Hi there Meme. Thank you very much for the kind review! It was nice to meet you, George and DD also. In reply to your "Cons" about our place...we do not state anywhere in our website, or listings on TripAdvisor, Flipkey, the Sunshine Coast Bed and Breakfast Cottage Owners Association, or Tourism BC that we have an automatic dishwasher. As you stated above, I did offer to wash your dishes for you and was more than happy to do so. As far as the driveway being "challenging," if you come with a friend we are more than happy to drive you up and down the driveway if you wish, no problem! A bit of a steep driveway is very typical of many properties on the Sunshine Coast...which gets you close to the water and amazing views...also, you mentioned that our suite is "quiet," and part of the reason is because our house is located at bottom of (paved) driveway, thus away from the minimal traffic we get here on the Francis Peninsula. We hope to see you again soon....hopefully this summer for a swim off our wharf!

Hallo Armin! Danke schön for taking the time to write a review. It was so nice to meet you and Romy and have you to stay. Yes, it's so peaceful here, and the wonderful ocean and mountain views from the suite are hard to beat. Also glad you found everything was "absolutely perfect" and felt like you were in "paradise"! We are flattered that you plan to come again to stay, and this time for a longer visit. Look forward to seeing you again. Kind regards, Gaylene and Daniel
