An affordable housing market makes Gibsons the perfect choice for young families and retirees looking to maximize their housing budget!
This beautiful seaside town with pristine beaches, old growth forests, quaint shopping and many wonderful cafés and restaurants will make you feel right at home.
Gibsons has four elementary schools and one high school which boast world-class teachers and facilities. The Gibsons Community Centre & Arena has a full size ice rink, gym, squash/racquetball courts, and skateboard park.
There is a complete network of pristine hiking and mountain biking trails to suit any skill level and due to our moderate climate they are accessible year-round. Nearby Roberts Creek is home to the Sunshine Coast Golf & Country Club, a championship 18 hole course that is playable 12-months a year. The Sunshine Coast is heaven for the water sport enthusiast—enjoy sailing, kayaking, canoeing or paddle boarding right in your backyard.
Gibsons is the gateway to the entire Sunshine Coast including Roberts Creek, Sechelt, Halfmoon Bay, Pender Harbour and Egmont. It is easy to explore and fall in love with the entire region.
Rich in arts and culture, there are artists' studios seemingly everywhere. The Heritage Playhouse hosts many festivals, concerts, plays, movies and performances year round. Outdoor shows occur often in Lower Gibsons at Winegarden Park, which allows one to soak in the culture and view at the same time. A local movie theater shows all the latest Hollywood films.
Gibsons is Canada's best kept secret and right now, it's only accessible by ferry. There's long been discussion of building a bridge or permanent road that would connect the Sunshine Coast to the rest of the Lower Mainland and most recently. A feasibility study was to be released last year
(2016) but is now set to be delivered before the end of 2017. Regardless of what that study says, I think it’s only a matter of time before a road or a bridge connects the two regions. Whether a bridge or highway arrives now or in the future, I expect that its eventual construction will push property values up as newcomers flock to the Sunshine Coast.
Call or text me with questions about Gibsons or the Sunshine Coast in general. I love where I live and enjoy nothing more than sharing why I believe Gibsons is Canada's best kept secret.
