My husband and I stayed at Takahashi Gardens this February, and we loved the serenity of the gardens as well as the beauty of the Sunshine Coast. We picked a perfect weekend to visit-- sunny and warm weather. We spent most days hiking and traveling around, and in the evenings soaked in the hot tub with a spectacular views of... More

One of the best places I have ever stayed :) Such feel-good vibes. Wonderful job Elaine. You are a most gracious hostess. Thank you so much for the beautiful oasis you have created for the rest of us to share and enjoy. Recommend 100% We preferred the Nikko suite, and have yet to try the Yama. Perhaps one day... Lots...

My boyfriend and I celebrated our 3rd anniversary together at Takahashi Gardens at the beginning of August and couldn't have been more pleased with our entire experience. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, Elaine (the fantastic hostess) made sure we understood the property and all our amenities, and ensured that we had everything we needed to... More

Elaine, the proprietor at Takahashi Gardens, is seriously committed to fulfilling guests' needs. Before I even arrived, I was in email contact with her about activities, restaurants, and the like. I had a special request for the room and she gladly handled it with no fuss. Once we arrived, she spent time showing us around and making sure all of... More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in the Nikko Cottage to celebrate a special birthday. Serene, beautiful setting, handsomely designed, Takahashi Gardens is a great base for exploring the Sunshine Coast. Elaine is the perfect host, very helpful in getting us acclimated to the area. We loved our time there and hope to return soon.

Thank you for making my stay so enjoyable at Takahashi Gardens. It was such a treat to wake up and eat breakfast on your beautiful patio watching the water. Although I was there for a work trip, you made it feel like a vacation! The Yama suite was clean, spacious and the kitchen was stocked with coffee (which I love!).... More

I would heartily recommend Takahashi Gardens to anyone who wants to get away from it all. Nestled back in the inlet you have a great view of the water and the surrounding woods. The owner has an eye for design and everything in the cottage was clean and neat. I was working in Sechelt that week and when I concluded... More

I can't say enough of how fabulous my stay here was - I found Takahashi Gardens online, and was immediately drawn to this little slice of heaven. What makes this place so special is the little details - Elaine has not just created a place to stay away from home, she's created a space that feels like home while you... More
