Secret Beach B&B is nestled amongst majestic cedar and tall Douglas firs on the spectacular Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, Canada. A relaxing 40 minute ferry ride from West Vancouver, the house is located just 8 km from the ferry, 3 km from the heart of Gibsons, and 150m from the ocean's edge.
�We felt spoiled and well taken care of... such wonderful attention to detail!�
� John and Ruth, New Westminster, B.C. - Jan, 2007
The architecture is a fusion of styles, west coast cedar, 12 foot vaulted ceilings, hints of southeast asian decor with bamboo, rich dark woods and ceiling fans slowly whirling - modern amenities are fused with asian charm.
The common lounge includes comfortable chairs, a flatscreen t.v. and wall to wall windows for a panoramic view of the ocean. The library includes books, games, dvds and videos - the perfect place to enjoy a good book or a chat with your fellow guests.
Secret Beach is landscaped to enhance your enjoyment of our acre of grounds. There is a meditation garden and a shaded gazebo for hot sunny afternoons. A hot tub is tucked under the deck so that rain won't prevent your enjoyment and provides you a secluded place to soak away stress.
- The Mahan Trail starts a few steps away from our door and wanders though the forest. The trail to Secret Beach is a short walk and the beach will entice you to beachcomb away a morning. Ocean Esplanade is a 2 minute drive away and is a level meander alongside the ocean.
- The deck and patio provide the perfect place to open that good book you�ve been meaning to start. But watch out, the eagles soaring by, a cruise ship sailing past, or the deer eating the tulips from the garden may distract you.
Pilliated woodpeckers, bald eagles, cormorants, white tail deer and heron are frequent visitors to the property.
