We do provide a memory foam mattress for additional comfort for the sofa bed.
The living room, during the summer months, has blackout curtains for when the sun makes its five am appearance!

The bedroom window has blackout curtains to ensure a full night's sleep, especially during summer when the sun rises at 5am.

LOCATION: Our rental is located near Gibsons Way and is accessible via the bus system, which originates at the ferry terminal. We are 7km from the ferry and in the heart of it all. Lower and upper Gibsons is a short walk (which does involve a bit of a steep hill climb either direction).
There is off street parking right in front of the home for those traveling with a car.
SELF CATERING: While we currently don't offer to make you breakfast, we will have fresh ingredients for your first morning on the coast. From pancakes to French Toast to homemade granola with yogurt, your coast adventure will have a 'sweet start!'

The two of us love to greet the guests and walk them through the unit. After check-in, we are available for questions about the area, recommendations about things to do and information about area attractions. However, we do give guests their privacy.
While the unit is on the first floor, there are about eight concrete steps up to the front door which may not be ideal for people who have moderate mobility issues (like a hip replacement).
Please note that this is a non-smoking, no pets unit.
Hello! Our names are Mike and Weegee and we are the proud owners of the Sweet Start B&B. The two of us are actually imports from Portland Oregon where we met on a dragon boat. Once our padding obsession had run its course, we decided to embark on our next great adventure -- life north of the border. We packed up and moved to Canada in 2011. From Commercial Drive to the Sunshine Coast, our time in British Columbia has been a great adventure that I (Weegee) routinely blog about.
The two of us work from home (I am a blogger, my husband is a computer software engineer), we get to enjoy the little things that Gibsons has to offer like a midday treat at the local bakeries. Since we don't have a car, we walk almost everywhere and can be seen exploring coastal towns hand in hand. For further destinations, we take the bus or use our membership as Coast Car Co-Op members.
There is a cat on site, our not-so-slender Random, but he isn't allowed in the suite and is quite shy of anyone beyond my husband and I. He's getting over it but just to let those allergic to cat know.
