“Our New Favourite Getaway”
Reviewed July 17, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

A lovely little property in a quiet area, only a quarter mile stroll up the beach from the hub of activity in this scenic little piece of coastal BC. Cindy and John make you feel like part of the family, are at your beckon call, yet so in the background that you feel like you are in your own private heaven. We would find ourselves staring off into the distance saying, "Wow, this is so great!" Our past holiday habits is for a week in an all inclusive in Mexico, we are now going to substitute Captain J's instead! Really, its like having your own private resort.

“Last minute surprise”
Reviewed May 23, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We booked last minute at Captain J's. The porch, bedroom, living room and kitchen are all on the water. We dropped our bags, walked out our front door onto the beach to Gibson's landing, enjoyed a fish taco and bought some fresh crab and beer for later. They are only a couple km to sprockids bike park which is full of fun single track. We had a great ride, back for a hot tub and then ate our fresh crab and prawns on the porch looking at the gorgeous coast in front of a fire with a glass of wine. Cindy and John have thought of everything: even our bed was heated - we could open the windows and listen to the waves without getting cold. But next time we will take you up on the offer of the shuttle!

“Amazing!!!”
Reviewed February 14, 2012 for a stay in September 2011

Well it has been 6 months since returning to Australia from our Canada trip and have to say Gibsons was a big highlight! Through organising our accommodation with Cindy - she is so very helpful, emailed back and forth and also helped my parents find accommodation in GIbsons....we were very excited to get there and meet Cindy and John and RELAX, and that is exactly what we did! The Suite is amazing - right on the water with breathtaking views. Gibsons is a gorgeous sea side town, coming from Australia - compeltely different to what we are use to...it was just perfect. Cindy and John have thought of everything you may need to make you feel right at home, they are a lovley family and if you are up for a chat they are more then welcoming:) -We went on a boat ride for a very good cost through one of Cindy's friends, this is a must do! John's crab appie's were sooo yummy and our bonfire on the beach was lovely!
We have promised ourselves that we will go back and stay longer next time round!!!
Thanks again for making my family right at home and for one of the best places we have travelled to!

“Excellent seaside suite”
Reviewed January 5, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

This one bedroom suite has everything you need, full kitchen, fireplace, comfy sofas, roomy, exceptionally clean, private, views of the ocean from every window. The best part is that the ocean is right outside the deck. Within a 5 minute walk are wonderful restaurants. The hosts, Cindy and John, are warm and welcoming, and Cindy made us a delicious warm crab dip. We can't wait to go back during the summer months.

“A beautiful seaside retreat that epitomizes the charm, beauty and hospitality of the Sunshine Coast”
Reviewed December 31, 2011 for a stay in December 2011

Captain J's Seaside Suite is a fantastic place to stay! The suite looks exactly as it does in the pictures, with perfect views of the ocean from every room! Incredibly relaxing, fully equipped and immaculately clean, the suite has everything you could possibly need. Cindy and John are incredible hosts who make you feel right at home--their hospitality is unsurpassed. Just a short walk to the town, and right on the beach, you have instant serenity with the convenience of a great location. I would strongly recommend staying here to anyone at anytime of the year if you are looking for a lovely retreat that is easy to get to from Vancouver--only a five minute drive from the ferry.

“beachfront oasis”
Reviewed November 25, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

Cindy and John have thought of everything you might need. In addition to the amazing location and views, the suite is equipped with everything I could have wanted and more. A full spice rack, every appliance I needed to create amazing dinners, soft towels.....the list goes on and on.
I surprised my boyfriend with a stay here on his birthday and we loved it so much we went back with his Father later this summer and again this fall. I could not recommend this place to enough friends.
I stumbled across their website and booked based on the photo's. You will NOT be disappointed.
