“Absolute Relaxation!”
Reviewed 23 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

My husband and I chose three Sunshine Coast/Desolation Sound locations to spend our one-week vacation this year to celebrate both of our birthdays. We could not have chosen a better place...from the location, setting and the very hospitable innkeepers, we made the right choice. So many wonderful details, from the privacy to the hot tub overlooking the ocean to lots of attention to detail (chocolate on the bedstand a real plus as were the slippers and robe!).
You can just tell when the innkeepers enjoy what they do! Wish we would have had more time here--love the privacy, the amenities and location. Although only there one night, we would come back for a longer stay.

“A wonderful weekend getaway”
Reviewed 10 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

I surprised my wife to a weekend here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were both really impressed by the location by the sea, fantastic view from the hot tub, and all the little details that made our stay very comfortable. Doug picked up our preference to avoid wheat products, and Donna produced some amazing breakfasts for us to enjoy. Such attention to details is hard to find these days! The hosts gave some good suggestions for local hikes and restaurants but a trip to the local visitors bureau yielded more challenging hikes at the nearby Tetrahedron range and a delicious plate of fish and chips at the Fishermans Pub.

What a beautiful little slice of heaven! My husband & I decided we needed a weekend get-away and didn't book anything ahead of time. So we ventured a half-hour by ferry and another half hour's drive to find a stunningly gorgeous B&B right on the water. The accommodation was spectacular...full suite with kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom & bathroom and deck overlooking the ocean. The hot tub was on the edge of the main property - mere steps from our separate Coach House and also overlooked the ocean. Another short path took us to the beach area in front of the property, where the owners had placed several Adirondack chairs and picnic benches, as well as two loungers under a large umbrella. Lots of special touches in this place and the owners were very friendly. We checked out the Artisan & Farmers market in town (only 3 km from the B&B) and enjoyed the local fare. Then back to our slice of "heaven" to read on the beach and check out all the driftwood and listen to the ocean. Couldn't have asked for a more relaxing weekend. We'll definitely return...with friends!

Liked best: The location and the facility.

“Wonderful relaxing stay”
Reviewed 1 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We can only agree with previous reviewers. It is aptly named. Doreen & Doug have thought of everything. We arrived at the end of a 3 week holiday in West Canada. We stayed in the Oceanside Suite, which is very spacious. The view out to sea is wonderful & we took full advantage of the private beach. Sitting in the hot tub looking out for seals was a lovely experience. The breakfasts were first class & Doug was very helpful in suggesting things to do locally. All in all a very enjoyable stay & the ideal place to relax. Our only regret is that we had no time to use the hammock! We have no hesitation in recommending it to friends.

“Just bring a toothbrush”
Reviewed 27 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Absolute Heaven has everything you need....just bring a toothbrush and a change of clothes! From bathrobes and slippers to food and beverages, including a lovely bottle of white wine--our hosts provided it all. Don't miss out on Doreen's fabulous breakfasts! They are creative and healthy (not too healthy!) feasts that include fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs right from her beautiful garden--served at your convenience. Although Doug and Doreen reside on the property, we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. They were unintrusive but available if you needed anything. The oceanfront is a bit difficult to walk (rocks, not sand) but it is a great launching point for a kayak and a small sandy beach area was created right on the property--again, Doug and Doreen have thought of everything!
