This seaside escape is an absolute treasure! My husband and I spent 6 nights at this beautiful and cozy rental and we plan to return for a longer stay as soon as possible! Cindy & John are outstanding hosts! The suite is extremely comfortable, spacious and immaculately clean. Every room has a spectacular view of the ocean. I can honestly say that I have never slept so well away from home. The combination of the finest quality mattress and gentle sounds of the ocean waves rocking you to sleep is the BEST! We loved drinking coffee on the inviting sundeck with the million dollar view. This amazing suite is very tastefully decorated and comes with every convenience of home.

“A beautiful place to kick back and relax.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

My husband & I spent 3 days at Captain J's, where we celebrated our 30th Anniversary. As soon as we entered the suite we were pleasantly surprised how well appointed the suite was. All the amenities you would need were there. The suite was simply and comfortably decorated and very clean. We had a personal chef who Cindy recommended come into the suite & cook for our anniversary dinner. Chef Alan Barnes from Ricolan Chef Services came in and cooked our meal from scratch. It was a wonderful experience sitting in the sun porch watching the sunset and the tide come in while eating a gourmet meal! We enjoyed the gas fire pit on the deck and of course the hot tub. Being right on the beach afforded us the opportunity to walk the beach at low tide. It is a short walk to Gibson Landing where you can enjoy strolling among the shops, restaurants, & coffee shops. Cindy & John have a lovely property and are wonderful accommodating hosts. They helped make our anniversary a memorable occasion. We will be back! Cheers!

“Tranquil weekend getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We stayed here for two nights in early December. It's just an hour away from downtown Vancouver, which is nice if you want a short relaxing vacation, but don't want to spend the majority of that time travelling. Captain J's is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the Coast - right at the waterfront but still very close to the ferry terminal, restaurants and shops. Cindy and John (and Dash!) were so warm and welcoming and made sure everything was set up for our stay. There were treats for us and the dog upon our arrival, which was a wonderful touch.

The beach was steps from the front door, and since we were there during the winter, it felt like we had it all to ourselves. The suite is fully stocked with just about everything you need and is such a cozy place that we were tempted to stay inside instead of exploring! There's not much better than a fireplace and the sound of waves outside on a cold, wet winter night.

We enjoyed our stay and can't say enough about Cindy and John's hospitality, and we look foward to returning for a visit in the summer.

“a small piece of paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We stayed at captain J's on September the 18th 2012. Unfortunately we only had time for 1night which was not enough. After checking in, we were surrounded by a beautiful view of the ocean. A cabin that had everything anybody ever wanted.
The host's John and Cindy had everything organized. Wine glasses ready, coffee, cream etc. Everything was ready for us.
We slept really well in the comfortable bed.
I was actually sad to leave in the morning. On our next trip to the sunshine coast we will plan to stay a few more day's and enjoy the first class hospitality.

“INCREDIBLE!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

This is a B&B but should be a BB&B....its beautiful - bright - and did I mention BEAUTIFUL!!! Cindy and John and their dog Dash greet you with a wonderful warm welcome to their home. The family history is quite something and let me say ....they've done John grandparents proud with what they have done here. The suite truly has a wonderful airy, beachy feel to it. Everything is spotlessly clean, the bed comfortable and to fall asleep to the sound of the waves is incredible. I hate to even write this review because I think this is truly a treasure that I don't want to share.........we've stayed at a number of B&B's on the sunshine coast but this one...........its special. I can't even begin to describe the incredible views as you sit on the deck. Every part of the suite shares this same incredible view. The pictures just don't do it justice. Book it and I promise you won't be disappointed!!

“Great Value and Better Hosts! :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We spent part of our holiday at Captain J's and it was a wonderful experience. Both Cindy and John go out of their way to ensure that you have a great time. The suite has unbelievable views and you are right on the beach. The suite is very large, clean and has everything needed. Great location also will not disappoint!
