“first trip to Gibsons - it won't be the last!”
Reviewed October 18, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This being my first time over to Gibsons, we really wanted it to be special, and boy was it ever! We had a fantastic stay with Mary and Ian. The accommodations were lovely, all the comforts of home - but with the added luxury of a quick walk to the beach and a private hot tub in which to soak under the stars. In the morning we were greeted with fresh baked goodies and fruit, topped only by the delicious welcome basket, that included treats for our dog Gozer as well. We will definitely be back!! :D

“Fabulous location and hosts!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We have stayed with Mary and Ian twice now (once at their old location in Sechelt and once at the current location in Gibsons). Mary and Ian (and Sophie) are great hosts who make you and your pooches feel very welcome and at home. They are very friendly and accommodating and it's a perfect vacation spot to bring your dog(s) :)

Our dogs are seniors and it's nice to be able to go somewhere we can bring them too so they also get to have a vacation.

I can't wait for the next time we're able to go back.

“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed August 30, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The suite was perfect, private and comfortable. Delicious treats and the Belgian waffles with fresh fruit on day 2 were to die for! Great hospitality, always available but not at all intrusive. Really felt like our own place with the perks of yummy breakfast delivered to the patio in the morning. Loved that we could bring our little dog and that Sophie ( the house dog) felt comfortable enough to come and hang out with us from time to time. Would highly recommend this to dog lovers and everyone else.

“Dog Days of Summer!!!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The best getaway ever! This lovely suite was more than we could have asked for with our "fur kids"! Absolutely everything that one could need (human or dog) was thought of and provided for. Every morning the homemade, warm, baked treats were deliciously sinful! Mary and Ian are welcoming and hospitable hosts full of advice and expertise of the local eateries, events, and artisans. From exploring the beaches to climbing local trails, this getaway is so well worth the trip; so much so that we already booked our stay for even longer next summer!!
Thank you Mary and Ian for sharing such a special place.

“You dont get much better than this”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Marian and Ian were wonderful hosts. It is so nice to have a truly dog friendly place to stay.. We hope to go back again but stay longer. And have Ian take us kayaking again. You won't be disappointed staying here!

“Lovely suite with spectacular view”
Reviewed July 15, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

My husband planned a weekend getaway for us and our crazy golden retriever for my birthday in May. I'm not sure how he stumbled upon Marian's on the Coast, but I'm so glad he did. Mary and Ian were spectacular hosts - always happy to help plan out activities, offer dining suggestions or anything else you may need. The best part for us was that they're clearly people who love dogs - our crazy golden retriever didn't even phase them. It was so nice not to have to stress that our dog would do something naughty the whole time we were there!!

Accomodation: A lovely suite with all the amenities of home. It is super clean and doggy friendly - complete with dog towels, dog bed, homemade dog biscuits and bags for cleaning up after fido. A welcome package is provided on arrival that includes home made cookies (soooo good), homemade dog biscuits and fresh fruit. Each morning Mary bakes a lovely assortment of fresh baked goods to accompany the delightful coffee included in your suite. This was one of my favorite parts of staying in the seaside suite!!

Location: Seems a little off the beaten path, but really it is just minutes from the ferry! The suite is perched on the side of a hill leading down to the ocean. From the bed you have views of the ocean and all the cool little boats and big barges that pass by. There is a beautiful path down to the beach (which is beautiful and rocky). Best part about the beach is that it is super dog friendly and there aren't many people around which provides the illusion you have a private beach!!

Overall, such a great visit to the Sunshine coast with lovely hosts! I can't wait to come back here and would definitely recommend to anyone - particularly people holidaying with their fur babies.

Thanks Mary & Ian for a wonderful and special weekend away.

“Honeymoon Getaway”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

For our honeymoon we really wanted to go somewhere that would allow us to bring our dog Mya along with us. We found Marian's on the Coast through some internet searches. I phoned and spoke with Mary prior to booking. She was so friendly and welcoming on the phone and was eager to help with any questions I had. She blocked the time slots for me so I could verify with my soon-to-be husband before booking. Needless to say we booked 4 nights with them. We were pleasantly surprised when we showed up and both Mary and Ian treated us like we were family. They were so welcoming and hospitable and you never once felt out of place, even with our dog running around. The room, deck, view, and beach were all amazing and you felt right at home. The suite was clean, comfortable, and just what you want for your vacation. The home-made breakfast in the morning was delicious!! And Mya loved her specially baked doggy treats. Mary and Ian both gave us excellent recommendations for trails to run and places to check out both in Gibsons and along the Sunshine Coast. We went kayaking with Ian one morning and we had an amazing time. He taught us everything we needed to know about kayaking (was our first time though we had canoed before). He showed us their little "aquarium" where we found sea cucumbers, crabs, and starfish below the surface. We would definitely take another trip with him! We had an amazing time on our honeymoon and we cannot thank Mary and Ian enough for the hospitality they gave us. This is truly an amazing spot for a vacation and you will not be disappointed if you book with them. It feels like your own home away from home.
