A large deck is partially covered for all-weather enjoyment. Deck furniture, including a sun umbrella is provided. The garden has a comfortable hammock and a solar shower (summer months only) for rinsing off after a swim at the beach.
Soames beach and the hiking trails of Soames Hill are both located less than 200m ( an easy three minute walk) away. Soames beach offers swimming, beachcombing, a place for evening bonfires or a pleasant stroll into Gibsons Landing.
Gibsons Landing is where the ‘Beachcombers’ TV series was filmed and Nick Adonidas’ boat, the Persephone is on display in the centre of town. Boutiques and galleries, a museum and a variety of restaurants are waiting to be explored. Fishing charters and kayak rentals are available from the harbour, which is bordered with a pleasant seawall walkway. A jazz festival in June, Sea Cavalcade (fireworks, parade and family events) in July and a Fiber Arts Festival in August, along with weekly markets and free concerts in the park mean that there is always something happening in Gibsons Landing.
In addition to Vancouver, great day trips include the village of Roberts Creek, the town of Sechelt, Pender Harbour, Smuggler Cove Provincial Park and Skookumchuk Narrows Provincial Park,
A cottage book includes detailed information about the cottage, local maps, activities, restaurant recommendations, bus schedule and other useful publications.

We were invited to a wedding and wished to be nearby, but totally independent. Keats Cottage was perfect, and arrangements with the owners enabled us to let ourselves in, and found everything necessary to prepare meals and entertain ourselves. The beach was just a short (5 min) walk. This Cottage was quiet, with a terrace overlooking the ocean and Keats Island. We will most definitely return.

Thanks for letting us stay at your wonderful cottage! Comfortable rooms, beautiful deck and landscaping, well-equipped kitchen, easy access to the beach across the street, and walking distance to the town of Gibsons. We enjoyed evening fires on the beach, drinks and Bbqs on the large deck, and a nice walk into town. Rented kayaks in Gibsons one afternoon which was a great way to explore the area and nearby islands. A perfect weekend getaway -- we look forward to staying for a week next time!
