“Hospitality at its best”

We spent 4 days @ absolute heaven with our two sons (3&6) and enjoyed every minute. The location on the waterfront and the layout of the suite and property are fantastic. Between the lawn, hot-tub and sandy play area on the property and adjacent natural rock & pebble beach replete with driftwood, the boys had a ball and we were able to relax. The suite was clean and well laid out. My only suggestion to Doug is for a more comfortable sofa bed, which he seemed happy to get the feedback, and knowing his commitment to making customers happy, I'd be surprised if it hasn't been replaced already. Doug and Doreen went out of their way to make us all feel welcome, including small touches like place settings for kids on arrival and sharing fresh smoke salmon and the day's crab catch. -All went a long way to making the visit extremely memorable. We will be back to visit again next year for sure.

Thank you for letting us know about the sofa bed. We have installed a brand new 4" foam mattress and there is also a 3" feather bed topper available for more comfort. Our customers are important and we are very glad when they let us know how we can improve their stay.

thanks again!
Doreen and Doug

“Hospitality and Nature at its Best”
Reviewed September 2, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

What a beautiful place! We learned about Absolute Heaven completely by fluke, while reading about Doug’s 1957 Corvette in the Driving section of our local newspaper. We were planning a Vancouver mainland/island trip at the time and when Absolute Heaven was mentioned, for some reason, we decided that we would spend our last two nights there. We couldn’t have made a better decision. We stayed in the Oceanside Suite. This place is immaculate. When you enter the unit, you are greeted with a lovely bottle of white wine (their own brew and it’s delicious…) sitting on the kitchen table and snacks on the counter. The rooms are spacious, the bed is super-comfy and you have your own bbq. The grounds are beautifully maintained. Doreen and Doug paid so much attention to detail that I don’t know where to begin. In the bathroom, there are bath towels as well as separate towels for you to use at the beach, there are lovely soaps, there is a tub AND a separate shower. There’s a radio in the kitchen and a pair of binoculars to take full advantage of the gorgeous ocean views. Seemingly small things, but exactly what we would have at home. Everywhere you look, it’s apparent that Doug and Doreen really care about their guests. This is the place to stay for complete relaxation. Be sure to ask Doug to see the Corvette – it’s stunning. Really, when was the last time you saw white-wall tires? And, those of us of a “certain” age who remember The Beachcombers should be sure to stop just down the road in Gibsons for a photo op at Molly’s Reach. The bottom line: Absolute Heaven is absolutely wonderful!!

“Absolute Heaven is just the right Name for this Place!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

This was My first time in Western Canada. Everything was so Green an Beautiful. The local Town of Sechelt was Quaint an had a Small Town Flair. The Farmers Market was Fun and had a Great Meal and Entertainment that Evening at a Local Establishment. The Owners of Absolute Heaven were very nice and made sure We had anything We needed during Our Stay there. The Suite was equipped with a Full Kitchen encluding a Complimentary Bottle of Wine. From Bathrobes to Cable TV to the Hot Tub and to Best View from the Balcony with Morning Coffee Anyone Could ask for. What a Great Place to get away for some Quiet Time to Relax or to Tour the Local Area Marina or Town. Thanks Doug and Doreen for a very pleasurable Stay. We will definetly be back but maybe during a Warmer Season next time. You Two keep doing what You're doing so Others can enjoy the Things that We did. Thanks Again. Shelly Lorenz, Polo, Missouri.

“Absolutely Fantastic!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My husband and I recently had the immense pleasure of staying in the "oceanside" suite at "absolute heaven". I have nothing but good things to say about this place! The building is less than 10 years old, so is in great condition, and extremely clean. We had a full sized kitchen with a complimentary bottle of white wine waiting for us. We had a living room with a pullout couch and fireplace, as well as a decent sized bedroom with a washer and dryer. The bathroom was quite large and had a separate bath tub and shower. They have a wonderful beach theme throughout the property with a lot of really nice touches like a small seashell resting on the note pad, or in the bath salts. Our view from our room was just phenomenal! We had our own ground level patio with bbq, and hammock that looked right out to the ocean. We were also about 20 paces away from a hot tub with the ocean view as well. They even chose the colour of the hot tub as a speckled blue so that when you are in it, the edge blends almost seamlessly with the ocean view. There are only 2 suites here, so it was very relaxing and peaceful. Doug and Doreen are fantastic hosts, they gave you space so that you felt you were on your own private resort, yet they were readily available should you need them. We had a wedding to attend while we were in sechelt, and had intended to walk from the suites to the location, however Doreen insisted that they could drive us if we would like, and we gladly took them up on the offer. They were accommodating with breakfast times, since we had to be up quite early the day we were departing. I have to say the breakfasts were amazing. They were 2 courses, and cooked to perfection. They use fruits and vegetables from their own garden, as well as trying to support other local producers. Though we didn't have the chance to take advantage of it, there is also a library and fitness room. The suites are also located right next to a bus stop for those of you who do not bring a vehicle. We chose this place based on other trip advisor reviews and were not only not disappointed, we were even more thoroughly impressed! We would definitely stay here again!

“Our own slice of heaven”
Reviewed July 17, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed in Islandview cottage for 2 nights with our son. Doug and Doreen were exemplary hosts - left us alone as much as we liked, yet were there if we needed anything.
The attention to detail was a delight - we felt immediately relaxed, had easy access to the beach and the kids toys, books, high chair and portacot made for a superb time for our 2 year old. We've never had such an incredible view from a hot tub before. What a beautiful place from which to explore the Sunshine Coast. Thank you Doug and Doreen!

“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!!
