We stayed in the Jervis Room for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. Colin and Carole were excellent hosts and were very attentive. It's clear that they take great pride in their B&B and want their guests to be comfortable. The room (and entire house for that matter) was well appointed and immaculate. It had a fireplace and its... More

Very nice B and B. My family of 9 visited for two nights. There are 4 rooms downstairs each with a bathroom. There was a large living area downstairs for visiting at night. We were on a tight schedule and Colin was a great help to us as we tried to schedule a ferry to leave the area. For breakfast... More

We are a foursome of friends, professionals in our 30's and 40's, who rented the Sand and Sea cottage for a long weekend. We had a nice time and spent quite a bit of time cleaning and tidying on the Sunday morning. Colin was just lovely. Carole asked us at check out what we did for dinner while there. We... More

Thank you for your comments. They are appreciated. Clearly that was not our best day. No charge for using the stove or oven. There can be a charge if kitchen, stove, oven, dishes, etc., are not left clean as found, or are damaged. This is standard practice. More attention to care would be appreciated. One of your business colleagues wiped... More

We chose to stay around Roberts Creek due to its proximity to both Sechelt and Gibsons but was not in the main city areas. What a great choice to stay with Carole and Colin, who were very gracious hosts who prepared amazing breakfasts and were great to talk with and to get to know. We came as a get away... More

Carole and Colin are very friendly and helpful hosts. They went out of their way to spoil me since I was their only guest and prepared a variety of delicious hot breakfasts for the 3 days I was there. We enjoyed many interesting conversations about a variety of topics at breakfast. They provided suggestions and directions for restaurants, parks, beaches,... More

Carole and Colin have exceeded and gone above and beyond our expectations. Their home is not only luxurious but comfortable and homelike. Carole's breakfast was delicious and we felt very well looked after. We look forward to our next visit!

We stayed 2 nights and loved the view, atmosphere, conversation and definitely the breakfasts! Would certainly go back when there's a chance to get away to the Sunshine Coast - could be a good venue for a family reunion too.

Beautiful hotel with fantastic surroundings. VERY poor breakfast (we ended up going to a local diner and had a lovely full breakfast at 11am). No bed making or room cleaning our entire stay of three days. Very poor service for a five star. Its part of my holiday to have the beds made and bathroom cleaned. If they improved the... More

Our guests have expectations and so do we. Be fair. We offer a deluxe continental breakfast with each suite. What we offer is posted on our website. However, some people are light eaters. This is why we clarify with our guests the night before, as we did with you. We were perplexed as to why you ate so little. We... More

My husband and I had a perfect 2 night stay at Discovery Place and would definitely want to stay again. The location is great because you're close enough to Gibsons and Sechelt, you're near the beach, and if you want to stay in, the beautifully decorated and immaculate home provides you with a comfortable, cozy place to kick up your...

We wanted to like this place but the main home is not for children (yes we had our kids with us) and we were given huge hints by the owners constantly. The room and main areas were meticulous. We just felt uncomfortable the entire stay.

Carole J, Owner at Discovery Place Retreat and Cottage, responded to this review

We appreciate all of our many guests. Discovery Place Retreat is adult oriented and is advertised as such. Occassionaly families with children request a booking and less often we accept. Adults vary in their mindfulness of children. Sand & Sea Cottage is more suitable to families, again with the same desire for mindfulness. More
