The garden has a comfortable hammock and a solar shower (summer months only) for rinsing off after a swim at the beach. Soames beach and the hiking trails of Soames Hill are both located less than 200m ( an easy three minute walk) away. Soames beach offers swimming, beachcombing, a place for evening bonfires or a pleasant stroll into Gibsons Landing. Gibsons Landing is where the ‘Beachcombers’ TV series was filmed and Nick Adonidas’ boat, the Persephone is on display in the centre of town. Boutiques and galleries, a museum and a variety of restaurants are waiting to be explored. Fishing charters and kayak rentals are available from the harbour, which is bordered with a pleasant seawall walkway. A jazz festival in June, Sea Cavalcade (fireworks, parade and family events) in July and a Fiber Arts Festival in August, along with weekly markets and free concerts in the park mean that there is always something happening in Gibsons Landing. In addition to Vancouver, great day trips include the village of Roberts Creek, the town of Sechelt, Pender Harbour, Smuggler Cove Provincial Park and Skookumchuk Narrows Provincial Park, A cottage book includes detailed information about the cottage, local maps, activities, restaurant recommendations, bus schedule and other useful publications. A DVD library and lots of games, puzzles and books make this an ideal location for an old fashioned family vacation by the sea. More
