Our Coffee Roastery

Our love for travel and coffee inspired us to start roasting our own coffee in our backyard, right here on the Sunshine Coast.

Our Vacation Suite

Our Sweet Start Suite in Lower Gibsons is a one-bedroom/one-bath private vacation unit that offers all the comforts of home during your stay on the beautiful Sunshine Coast.

Life on the Coast

Gibsons is a 40-minute ferry ride from West Van and a fantastic location for a weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of Vancouver.

The Coffee

It all started with a barbecue burner and a Whirley Pop popcorn maker. How we started roasting our own coffee in our backyard!

The Suite

The Sweet Start B&B Suite is your home away from home. The single, first floor private unit features a spacious living room, full galley kitchen, a dining area, and a king-sized bed for your added comfort.

Find Us at Gibsons Farmers Market

Find us at Gibsons Farmers Market at Persephone Beer Farm on Sundays from 10am - 3pm until Labour Day weekend!
