“Beautiful Beach House Getaway”
Reviewed August 11, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We spent 7 days in this cottage retreat in quaint Gibsons BC. The house is very accommodating with everything you need to cooking and entertainment. It is steps away from a lovely sand beach on the end of soames road. If you like hiking there is a beautiful trail on soames hill which gives you a spectacular view of the surrounding area. The trail head is steps away from the front door. We enjoyed the hosts spectacular garden, fresh herbs were always available to cook with dinner. The porch was ideal for outdoor dinning with a nice view of the ocean. We were able to stay cozy on cool nights with a nice fire in the salon. Over all great experience, would recommend 10/10!

“Perfect Cottage - Quiet, Relaxing - You will want to stay here”
Reviewed July 28, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

This is a perfect 'Home away from Home' - A lovely cottage with everything you could possibly need to make your stay perfect. You can get sun on the deck or sit on the other side in the shade if you prefer. This is our second time to stay here and we hope to come again next year!

Close to all amenities - we brought most of our food and drinks but we made two trips to the IGA for fresh seafood and a few extras!

You will want to stay at this cottage!

“What a great place to turn 48!”
Reviewed June 7, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage. It has all you need and you feel at home. Gibsons surprised us very positively, so close to Vancouver, great beaches, nice little town with amazing seafood right from the boat, very good hiking to Soames Hill. We even swam in the ocean early June! We spent a lot of time outside on the covered deck. The time flew by and it's a great place for families and/or couples. My daughter specially liked the bunk bed.

Thanks for sharing your cottage with us!

“Quaint cottage with a great location”
Reviewed September 1, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We loved your quaint little cottage! It was very comfortable, we loved the style and older furniture and the size was just right for our family. It was great to be able to walk to the beach as well as take in the phenomenal view from the top of Soames hill. Everything was as we'd hoped it would be and better, so thank you!

“Cute Cottage”

We enjoyed our stay at Keats Cottage. The bright living space, large deck with morning sun and comfortable seating, quiet bedrooms at the back of the house and lovely gardens all added to the positive experience we had here. The owner was very helpful prior to our stay to ensure we had the information we needed to check in. Highlights included the strenuous but rewarding hike up Soames Hill followed by lunch at the beer farm. Wonderful!
