“Perfect location, beautiful accomodations!”
Reviewed June 27, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed here for a nice relaxing holiday. We enjoyed hiking, sea kayaling, eating out, and the Robert's Creek Art Festival. It was perfectly relaxing. We enjoyed a hot tub every evening!

“Stunning View!”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We were lucky enough to have some time to explore the Sunshine Coast for a short time. Absolute Heaven was highly recommended by a co-worker/friend and she did not exaggerate! The suite was beautiful, very clean, tastefully decorated with a nautical theme, beautiful gardens and pathways, a lovely spot right on the beach to have a fire, and a hot tub overlooking the ocean with a spectacular view (we were even treated to a show by a little harbour seal while we sat in the hot tub). We chose the breakfast option and were not disappointed - delicious. However, the kitchen is very well equipped for anyone who prefers to do the cooking. We would recommend Absolute Heaven to anyone who is looking for a little piece of paradise. Thanks Doug and Doreen!!

“Our new favorite B&B hands-down”
Reviewed June 17, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Over the years, we have stayed in Sechelt at least dozen or so times at various B&B's - this is by far our new "go-to" location and we couldn't be more thankful that we found it. Absolutely flawless. Beautiful setting, stunning gardens and pristine and considerately appointed suites. Privacy, peace and scenery at its best. Can't wait to go back! Very highly recommended!!! Thank you Doug and Doreen for an amazing stay :) - we couldn't have asked for anything more!

“A Piece of Heaven”
Reviewed June 10, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

My husband and I truly enjoyed our weekend stay here. This B&B is very cozy and welcoming. Doug and Doreen made us feel right at home. If you are looking for a place to relax, this is the perfect place for it. It is very quiet and calm. The suite has a stunning view of the ocean and an a hot tub that allows you to take in the wonderful view. The kitchen is fully equipped and your own bbq if you want to do your own cooking (however, we highly recommend the gourmet breakfast prepared by Doreen!). The backyard is very nice, with lawn chairs and a fire pit. It was just so enjoyable to sit there, enjoy the sun, and read while listening to the waves.
We will certainly be back.

“Perfect Introduction to the Sunshine Coast!”
Reviewed June 5, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Our stay at Absolute Heaven was a fantastic introduction to the beautiful Sunshine Coast. My parents and I had never been to this area before, so the bar has been set pretty high after our stay at Doug and Doreen's beautiful home in Sechelt.

The room we had was very spacious and could easily accommodate the three of us (two in the bedroom, and I had the pull-out bed). The suite was stocked with more than what I've come to expect from most hotels: essential toiletries in the bathroom and plenty of towels for both indoor and outdoor use, robes and bedroom slippers for all three of us, topped with chocolates on the pillows; and the kitchen had a basket of snacks and plenty of coffee and tea, in addition to the complimentary bottle of wine sitting on the kitchen table.

Absolute Heaven also had a hot tub on the premises that had a great elevated view of the beachfront and surrounding water which I took full advantage of my first night there, easily watching the sun set from the property's ample south-facing vantage point. A narrow pebble path also wound down to a private beach area where an umbrella-shaped hut provided shade to a bevy of beach and lawn chairs for both adults and small children. A neat patch of lawn blended down to a sandy area with a fire pit that was available for guests to use, and the space was festooned with "shipwreck" decor that was both quaint and actually well curated, which really helped with the area's overall vibe.

There's a surprisingly well-stocked gym available on the premises--no treadmill though, but that's likely due to space constraints--and a small collection of VHS tapes and DVDs in addition to the flatscreen TV and satellite cable in the suite.

We opted to get a fresh hot breakfast served to us by Doreen on our last day and we were not disappointed. She started off breakfast with a plate of plums (straight from her garden) with a warm sweet glaze and whipped cream, which was then followed by a rich serving of eggs benedict and home fries. The highlight of the breakfast, however, was her homemade cranberry-blueberry muffin cakes with a side of butter. (To be honest, I may have actually gotten that description wrong since I practically wolfed the dessert down after tasting how good it was!)

Doug and Doreen made our stay pleasant and worry-free. They were available when we needed them but were also very keen about giving us ample privacy. Doug helped out with great recommendations on activities and even got a rate quote for us from the local golfing club. I'd definitely recommend a stay here and would most certainly recommend this place to friends if they're ever in the area!

We are fairly seasoned travelers and by far this is one of our favorite spots. Absolutely gorgeous grounds. Our suite was amazing, fireplace, had an amazing ocean view, private yard, hot tub overlooking the ocean, complimentary wine, chocoloates, huge 900 sq ft suite. BBQ on deck. His and Hers comfy robes and slippers , huge kitchen and the bathroom was like a spa. Before we left, we looked to book in the summer. LOVED IT, great value!!

“A real Gem!”
Reviewed May 30, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Stayed at Absolute Heaven with my wife and 9 year old daughter for 2 nights in May 2013. We had never been to the Sunshine Coast before and went just to explore and escape the busy streets of Vancouver. Doug and Doreen have one of the nicest spots we have ever stayed at. It was very central to the entire area and a great base to explore from. We stayed in the Islandview Cottage which truly has the most remarkable views of the water and nearby Trail Islands. The cottage was modern, clean, comfortable and well appointed with everything one could want to make it feel just like home. The little extras like complimentary snacks and a bottle of wine made it obvious our hosts really enjoy providing the best possible experience for their guests. The landscaping and grounds throughout the entire property are amazing and the hot tub overlooking the water is something you have to do. Our daughter just loved playing in the sand on the beach and poking around in the rocks for critters at low tide. Our daughter has been wanting to catch a crab and being a prairie boy from AB I haven't been too successful in helping her with that around Vancouver but Doug pointed us in the right direction and even provided the "right bait". Needless to say we were successful and enjoyed an amazing crab feast with some local produce from the Farmers market and the complimentary bottle of wine to round out the meal. It was a much needed break for our family and I would not hesitate to recommend Absolute Heaven to anyone. Thanks Doug and Doreen for a wonderful stay and for offering up your beautiful home for others to enjoy!
