“Beautiful and cozy”
Reviewed July 30, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

My husband and I stayed in the Oceanview Suite for the two nights following our wedding. It was the perfect place for us to have some quiet down time in between post-wedding events. The view is fabulous. It is a lovely walk down to a gorgeous beach. The view from the hot tub is wonderful. The garden is really pretty. We enjoyed our two breakfasts a great deal. There was more than enough food. We enjoyed the gas fireplace one of the evenings. Everything you need is provided in the suite and Doug and Doreen were easily available for any requests or things needed. My only small complaint is that we could hear the highway from our bedroom when the window was open at night. For this reason, the other suite would be preferable over the Oceanview Suite. We highly recommend a stay here. Thanks Doug and Doreen for a wonderful post-wedding stay.

“This is absolute heaven !!!”
Reviewed July 15, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

I don't think that we can say enough about Doug, Doreen and Absolute Heaven. What an incredible place to stay. We stayed in the Oceanview Suite. Everything that you could have needed for your stay was all made available, from complimentary bottle of wine and snacks to lap blankets and bandaids. Doug and Doreen have thought of everything. The suite is well appointed, extremely clean, spacious and well decorated. The grounds are immaculate, hot tub overlooking the ocean was glorious, and the campfire area on the beach a wonderful added touch. Just sad that we didn't take advantage of one of the breakfasts.

Absolute Heaven is a place you want to rave about to your friends but are afraid that it will be all booked up for your next visit. Thank you so much Doug and Doreen for sharing your piece of paradise with us. We had a memorable, restful, glorious week.

We had a lovely stay at Absolute Heaven. Doug and Doreen were warm and welcoming and the space was beautiful. The hot tub was sublime and the breakfast amazing! A great choice!

“Westcoast Bliss”
Reviewed June 27, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

My wife and I were looking for a quick getaway for our anniversary and found this little gem. Right on the water with a hot tub and close to Sechelt for groceries, lunch or dinner. Doug and Doreen were great hosts, super friendly and accommodating. We opted for the package that came with breakfast, fruit and sparkling wine. We were not disappointed as breakfast was fantastic and the ocean view made it that much nicer. It seems like it would be a nice place for kids too because they have a little sandy beach area on the property and you can walk the beach and explore if you wanted to. When we decide to return to Sechelt this will be our only choice.

“This may not be 'Heaven' but it's very close”
Reviewed June 14, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We enjoyed a three night get-away for our honeymoon this May. The property is convenient to town and ferry and very easy to find when coming from the ferry through Sechelt.
Doug was an excellent Host and while we didn't get to meet Doreen until we were leaving, she is very charming and intersting to talk to also. Having said that, Doreen was the sole creator of three fantastic Breakfasts for our stay, which were very well presented, Delicious and more than sufficient for our hearty appetites.
The suite we stayed in was very private, clean and comfortable with a marvelous view of the Trail Island chain. We enjoyed the private deck several mornings watching local fishers. boats and birds. The sound of the ocean just reaches the sliding doors to the deck which opens from a well appointed lounge/sitting area with Gas fireplace which we put to good use as honeymooners.
We spent a couple of mornings walking along the waterfront which is easily accessible from the suite along a wide well built pathway.

All in all a very nice place to stay

“Paradise found”
Reviewed June 8, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

If you are ready for a much needed get-a-way, if you are seeking a place where
nature abounds............in.the whisper of the wind in the trees, the ocean matching its' rhythm with your heart-beat, eagles soaring overhead............where there are miles of hiking trails within minutes and a kayaking playground calling ................
then look no further.............Absolute Heaven is only a phone call away........
Doreen and Doug are your perfect hosts...........

“Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed June 5, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

My wife and I stayed here for our Anniversary for a quiet , relaxing getaway. It was perfect, the location on the ocean with a beautiful view, and close proximity to Sechelt in case you want to head into town for dinner. Comfy, quiet room with excellent breakfasts delivered to your suite from the perfect hosts Doug and Doreen. Hot tub steps from the ocean , easy access to walks on the beach and a fitness room. Highly recommend.
