The Arcturus Retreat B&B is a perfect place to get away for a weekend. Our room was comfortable, the breakfast was delicious, and the hosts were very knowledgable about the area in helping us find things to go see and do. It sits right above Horseshoe Bay and we enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the ferries and other... More

Thank you for your note. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in British Columbia. As former prairie kids ourselves, looking at Howe Sound and the Pacific Ocean never gets old. Please come enjoy our deck again someday. More

We were warmly greeted, made to feel at home. The accommodations were very attractive, and we felt pampered. The breakfast crepes were delicious and the views are outstanding! Wish we could have stayed longer, but alas the ferry at the bottom of the hill was waiting for us! Would definitely stay here again.

Dirty towel on bathroom floor the night we arrived!!! We told them on the last day and this was the response: we though it was yours. Interesting!!!! Check and clean everything before you allow guests in. And tge breakfast was enough for a young child, not adults. We do not recommend the place.

Thank you for your comments. We appreciate feedback on your experience at our B&B and strive to correct any shortcomings in our service. As we noted with your partner, the towel left in the bathroom should have never happened, and we were embarrassed that we had missed it. It must have been a cleaning towel accidentally left behind and then... More

Brilliantly positioned for the final ferry trip across to Horseshoe Bay. A welcoming, comfortable and friendly environment delivered by enthusiastic hosts. We made use of the hot spa which was a bonus after following recommendations for an evening meal. Our room was very comfortable and spacious with everything you needed.

Arcturus is just what a b&b should be: a clean and private room with an ensuite in a big house with hosts who strike the right balance between discretion and friendliness. The owners, a young personable couple, care about this place and it shows. Everything is clean and modern and well-considered. All three guest rooms are good and the common... More

Thank you for the kind words. We enjoyed visiting with you and the other couple travelling with you. It's always more fun when a group can enjoy together...whether it is drinks on the deck or late-night card games. We are very sorry that our neighbors decided to overzealously entertain the evening of your stay. Usually, this is a very peaceful... More

This B and B is in a beautiful, fairly new, west-coast style, ocean view home just 3-4 minutes from the Langdale ferry terminal, and a short 5-km drive into the town of Gibson's. There are two rooms: Black Bear on the main floor and Grizzly upstairs. Both are clean, well-furnished and very comfortable, and have views of Howe Sound, Gambier... More

We wanted a simple weekend getaway, and living in Vancouver, the island is a great option to do this. What a delight to find a great bed and breakfast hosted by two wonderful people. The house is spacious with lots of light - a patio, garden and hot tub to enjoy. We stayed in the Black Bear room which boasts... More

We are so glad you enjoyed your quiet getaway to the Sunshine Coast. So easy to explore even when you don't bring a car. Come back this summery and you'll dine out on the deck in the warm sunshine. Thank you! Stan & Celia More

We went on a small trip to sunshine cost for this family day and booked our two nights stay at this B&B.

Cozy house with a great view on the mountains and the sea. The room was very clean and comfortable and the bathroom offered a nice, modern shower. Delicious homemade breakfast made with great effort by friendly hosts who were very helpful as well. They recommended us great tours in the area. Really worth to come back!
