I love our semi-wild backyard, the proximity to park, beach and shops, neighbours we've known for a long time.

Anne and Horst were perfect host. The room is clean, comfortable and provide all we need. Let us felt at home. I left Bowen Island just for a few days, but I have missed them already. They provided plentiful and delicious breakfast and we had a lovely conversation. Also, they were help and gave some suggestions how to spend a day in the island. I can say no more, I will be back to Seven Hills B&B when I come to Bowen Island next time. Thank you Anne and Horst again.
After staying at Seven Hills I can say that all the positive reviews are well deserved! Room was nice and clean, great little bathroom with heated floor and shower plus we also had a little kitchen with a beautiful vintage, still working oven. The bed was big enough for us to sleep on comfortably with our 3-months old baby between us. The breakfast was to die for! If somebody ever asked me what's your dream breakfast this is it! Homemade bread, pancakes, cinnamon buns and eggs! The best thing from this b&b though are its owners. Anne & Horst are genuine, kind hearted people who will do their best to make your stay pleasant. We really enjoyed talking to them and staying in their home and we'll definitely be back!
This is one of the few B&B's that accept young children. Annemarie and Horst were wonderful hosts and were very accommodating with our 2 year old son. The room was very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was amazing. Will definitely be coming back here in the future.
Annemarie is an absolute joy! I really appreciate her positive attitude and her kind generosity. She is a terrific hostess, making you as the guest feel most welcome in her home. Her breakfast spread was delicious! After a lot of travelling and eating out, it was so nice to have homemade food. I only wish that I could have stayed longer here! Would absolutely recommend this place!
Our second trip back to Seven Hills. Just as memorable as the first. The breakfast is to die for, the host just as sweet as her homemade jellies and baked goods. We highly recommend the stay. This is our secret place for relaxation and rest, away from the buzz of the rat race.
Quaint little garden level suite in a comfy home - very easily accessible trails nearby and quick 1 km walk into Snug Cove.
Impressive home cooked breakfast spread as well! The suite itself had adequate cooking supplies if one were inclined to purchase groceries and be a do it yourself-er.
Annemarie and Horst were excellent hosts--very quick to respond to emails/texts and flexible with checking us in early. Annemarie was very helpful and took time to give us some tips on how to spend a day on Bowen Island (the sunset at Tunstall Bay was amazing). The suite itself was perfect--comfortable bed, good size kitchen, and a very nice and clean bathroom. The morning breakfast (cinnamon buns, eggs, fresh fruit, sausages, crepes, and homemade jams) was delicious. The house is a quick 10 minute walk to Snug Cove so it was perfect if you want to go for dinner and walk back later, and there are some trails so you don't have to walk on the road (but bring a flashlight if walking at night!). Overall it was a great first Airbnb experience for us and we would highly recommend staying at Seven Hills if you plan on visiting Bowen Island!
Happily retired from over a quarter century as secretary of the local community school, I enjoy meeting people and showing visitors shortcuts through our trail network and special places on Bowen Island. I love to swim in the ocean (we are a five minute walk from Pebbly Beach) and walk for pleasure. Lately I have started bicycling again, mostly around the flat parts in Crippen Park or taking my bike to Vancouver, exploring the many bike routes. I am still learning about gardening and what works in our climate. Every plant that survives and even thrives despite pests and predators is a success! In the winter, I get back to knitting socks, trying new recipes and enjoy a slower pace of life.
