We have stayed at Deer Fern B&B many times and each time we ask ourselves why we left it so long to return. Kathi has created a warm, welcoming space for her guests. The view of the water is stunning, the guest suite is very comfortable and the breakfasts are spectacular. Kathi is a fabulous host and will do everything... More

We booked 3 days at Deerfern. This is a totally spotless bed and breakfast! Kathi and Bob are awesome hosts. They really care about their guests comfort. Their property is sculptured and neat. All is fully accessible. The room is pet and scent free. Internet connection, wide screen tv, coffee machine, and small fridge are supplied. The back deck overlooks... More

As a business traveller, I really appreciate a B&B that is peaceful, in a beautiful location, has everything I need ready and waiting for my arrival, and provides a really good breakfast. Deerfern does it all! This is a first-class B&B, and I highly recommend it.

My husband I stayed there for his birthday. The suite is very nice and very clean. It is close to the beach. We watched sunset from the deck. The view is beautiful. Kathi is very helpful and her breakfast is marvelous. We enjoyed our stay.

My daughter and I decided to go on a two day vacation together. She suprised me in where we were going and staying. It was a wonderful beautiful retreat. The breakfasts were heavenly and our Host was awesome. It will be forever etched on my memory.

Thank-you! It certainly was a surprise! (how does a person pack without knowing the destination?) I am elated your Sunshine Coast Getaway was so memorable. More

Went here for a mother/daughter get-away... was perfect. Kathi is a wonderful innkeeper. The room is comfortable with ample sitting space outside. Short walk to the beach, beautiful views, delicious breakfast. Would definitely recommend.

I stayed at Dear Fern B&B and had the best sleep I've had in a long time. The B&B is located just a short walk from the beach where there are many kilometres to wander along and watch the water and the wildlife -Truly restorative. Kathi is a remarkable host with every detail carefully considered. Highly recommended

Quick getaway to Vancouver and decided to stop by Gibsons for a night after it was recommended by a friend. With just one night - we were lucky to find availability at Deer Fern B&B. Tucked away in a quiet, beautiful part of the town a stone's throw from the beach. I only wish we could have been here during... More

What a warm welcome to the Sunshine Coast! Many drive past Gibsons although Gibson's landing has excellent restaurants and a nice atmosphere. The Deer Fern has a private suite with a lovely deck and nice view. Excellent breakfast (with our own deer visting) ! Tucked away in the woods outside of Gibsons.

Deer Fern is a wonderful place for anyone looking to relax and melt into the Sunshine Coast's laid back lifestyle. The location is in a quiet well treed part of town just by the water and a short stroll to a pebble beach. The room was very clean with current furniture and a comfortable west coast design. It also comes... More
