“A relaxing waterfront haven offering peace and tranquility.”

My husband and I just returned from spending 3 glorious nights at Captain J's Seaside Suite and wish we were still there!
Just a short ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay, Vancouver, this home away from home is just that. It has all the comforts you could possibly ask for with breathtaking views from every room. BBQing fresh seafood on the deck and toasting marshmallows in the outdoor fire was how we spent our nights. Our days too soon passed by as we watched the tides roll in and out armed with a glass of wine and a good book. Hosts Cindy and John made us feel very welcome indeed ensuring we were comfortable and undisturbed. Even though we were there in coolish March with the occasional drizzle, this set the scene for this romantic hideaway. We 'll be back for sure.

“Magical, waterfront place!”
Reviewed 17 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We wish we could have stayed longer after discovering how incredible the suite was. It felt like we were staying on a houseboat when the tide came in, with the amazing water views especially from the bedroom. The ocean and sandy beach are literally at your doorstep, with chairs on your private deck to enjoy the view. Cindy was incredibly hospitable and we hope to be back again soon!

“Really Wonderful!!!”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The location is outstanding!! A few steps out the door & you're swimming in the warm ocean! Use the fire pit on the beach right out front, or the gas fire pit right on the deck. It was pretty hot out when we were there, but the house stayed cool & the deck has shade, so you can sit & watch your friends swim out front, or the sail boats further out, or just take in the drop dead gorgeous view. I only wished I did not have to sleep, it was so beautiful to see the moon shining on the ocean. Hearing the waves lapping close by, lulling you to sleep in your comfy bed... does it get any better?! Accommodations were spacious, very clean & very comfortable, everything you could need & more. The owners are upstairs but it still feels very private & they are happy to help with anything you need. I would recommend this place in a heart beat & can't wait to go back!

“Amazingly Perfect Beachfront Paradise...5 Steps to the Beach!!”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is our third time visiting John and Cindy. They are caring and outstanding hosts! We always feel welcome and enjoy our stay at Captain Js. The suite is beautiful and clean and at the same time feels very comfortable. The kitchen is well supplied with cooking utensils, dishes and more... The suite is also large with the bedroom at one end and the living room, complete with gas fireplace, at the other end. Other positives for us are walking along the beach to downtown Gibsons or relaxing on the deck looking at the amazing beach front view!! Thanks again Cindy for literally "going the extra mile" bringing Lee's forgotten cell phone to the ferry terminal. We have travelled to many beautiful places but Captain Js is our favourite - we will be back!! (Lee is already looking forward to playing fetch again in the ocean with Dash)

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.
