In Gibsons, B.C., there's a must-see coffee shop on the Sunshine Coast. Now, you can take your love affair with java to the next level and actually stay in an Airbnb right above the famous coffee shop. The Beachcomber Coffee Airbnb is available to book right now. Narcity spoke with founder Martin DesRosiers to find out more about his hidden gem in Gibsons.
Even though Gibsons is just a 40-minute ferry ride away from Vancouver, it feels like a world away.
"There are many amazing beaches and hikes to explore if you're looking for an outdoors adventure," said DesRosiers. "The community is around 5,000 residents so the pace is much different than the concrete jungle."
His Bed & Beachcomber space has an incredible view of the water. It's close to everything and the Gibsons Landing neighbourhood is super walkable.
Inside the industrial-style loft, there's enough space for a getaway for two.
Plus, "coffee, donuts, and good eats are right downstairs so that's a huge bonus," said DesRosiers.
He even gave us recommendations for other places to check out while you stay there.
He named Buono Osteria, Smitty's Oyster House, and Lunitas Mexican Eatery for a bite to eat. There's even great brewery called Tapworks when you're ready to switch from coffee to beer.
The studio has super high ceilings and a ton of style. You could get used to living in an apartment like this with views of the water.
Whether you're looking to explore the outdoors on the Sunshine Coast and need a crash pad to recharge or you're just looking for a cozy getaway where you won't have to drive from place to place, this Airbnb has to be on your bucket list.
No coffee-lover can resist this place. After your stay, you can even stock up on beans to take the vacation experience home with you.
