Brilliant experience ! Had an incredible time at this studio nestled into the forest, although so close to the town of Gibsons. Carol was very helpful and we loved the company of all the feathered and furry friends. Perfect place for a weekend of work and relaxation. Highly recommended and will be back.
A one of a kind mix of an artistic retreat and nature reserve. The hosts - who leave surprise baskets of treats at your door in the morning - will inspire you to design your life.
A very cool getaway location! The studio is an art experience in itself- very comfortable, stylish. The property is beautiful with so many trees and the animal friends! And the location is an ideal spot: feels like you're far away and can walk on trails through nature to the beach, but you can also hop in your car and drive for only 5-10 minutes and find the grocery store or a cafe or whatever you want..
Todd was an excellent host, welcoming us, introducing us to animals and delivering fresh baked goods for breakfast. Hope to return for another stay sometime and would definitely recommend this spot to others!
Thank you , Kristina.
What a wonderful space, inside and out. Being surrounded by lush rain forest with the only noise being the rain on the roof was bliss and balm.
Spacious and modern, the studio perfect (ok, could have used a fireplace but now I'm being picky LOL ), I loved it! Even though you felt like you were in the middle of nowhere, Starbucks was a mere 5 minute drive away.
I didn't get to spend much time with Todd and Carol but he made sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed.
Oh and by the way, the masseuse he recommends was outstanding, she even does house calls!
This B&B is a place to completely reset. We were here for 2 nights and it was not enough. Will definitely be back to stay at this gorgeous place. Todd and Carol were amazing hosts. They made us feel very welcome. If we had any questions they were very helpful and also gave some great suggestions of things to do. They gave us privacy too which was wonderful. We are vegan and they even brought us vegan muffins each morning! Very thoughtful. You can see when you walk through the gate the attention to detail. The art laced throughout the property integrated into nature. It is stunning. When we walked into the studio it was beautiful! They have a great sense of design. The art on the walls, sculptors, furniture were put together so well. The garage door that opened up was brilliant; it let the nature in. Very open and airy. Not to mention it was clean, the kitchen was stocked with dishes, tea, coffee, juice, milk, and yogurt. We really felt at ease from the moment we came to stay here. Todd gave us a tour of the barn; we loved this! The animals are so amazing! There are emus, horses, guinea hens, peacocks, a lama, chickens, and Red the cat. There is no tv which is great because we watched the animals for hours. We are already missing our stay. Looking forward to the next time. Thanks again Todd and Carol!
We were attending a wedding on the Sunshine Coast this weekend, so decided to book this studio. Todd and Carol were incredibly accommodating, especially since we had a late check-in. The directions to the place were clear and it is located conveniently close to the ferry terminal.
The studio shares the property with emus, peacocks, chickens, horses and a friendly cat named Red. It was very peaceful to wake up here, surrounded by Todd's beautiful artwork. And to find a basket full of baked goods (in addition to the juice, yogurt, bowl of fruit, tea, coffee..) was more than we could have asked for. We felt as if we were getting away with something!
We will be telling all our friends and family that this place can't be missed if you make it over to the Sunshine Coast.
Thanks so much, Brian.
Carol and Todd greeted us and left flowers and fruit in the room.
Todd and Carol were a delight throughout our visit. They were generous, funny, and interesting: they gave us a full tour of their wonderful farm and introduced us to all of the animals. They were more than happy to share their lives and space with us, but also gave us privacy to enjoy a weekend away. The studio itself was gorgeous: our favourite feature was the garage door that allowed (in summer) fresh air to circulate. Todd's paintings in suite are beautiful, and they have decorated the suite very tastefully. Todd and Carol brought fresh pastries in the morning from a local bakery, and stocked the fridge with other breakfast items. There are two beaches within walking distance, but time spent on the farm is just as lovely. We would recommend this place to ANYONE looking to stay on the sunshine coast - it was a perfect weekend getaway.
BOOK IT!! Don't go anywhere else- this was heaven!
You'll be staying in a gorgeous cozy yet modern art studio bachelor suite…in the middle of a farm- i don't know what could be more amazing than that.
The suite had everything we needed like coffee, tea, juice, towels, board games, etc. The farm had beautiful animals which we had the opportunity to interact with (horses, emu's peacocks, etc).
What i loved about this place is that we were only 2 minutes from the main city life of Gibsons with its beaches and restaurants yet driving to the place you feel like you're in a secluded area.
Todd and Carol are absolutely the sweetest- they delivered delicious pastries for us in the mornings and had better recommendations that the travel magazines.
We loved our stay here, it could not have been more perfect than what we were hoping for and we can't wait to revisit!
Enjoyed a very serene weekend at Todd's Studio. As soon as I arrived in the green and peaceful oasis, the hustle and bustle of the city melted away. Todd and Carol are gracious hosts, gave us ideas of what to do then we felt at ease coming and going. It was great being able to park the car and explore. We walked down to Secret Beach - if you turn right at the bottom of the stairs, you can have the whole beach to yourself! Also found a path just across the road from the farm to a stunning lookout over Gibsons. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway. The space is even more beautiful than the photos and the breakfast was perfect.
Thank you, Lillian. I hope you both visit us again.
Todd is a nice and down to earth guy , he only stayed for a night so I got the opportunity to know him a little :)
Staying here is like staying at a boutique B&B, except with amazing Art surrounding your hip studio, peacocks, Emus and more, fresh farms eggs for your asking, apples from the orchard, fresh flowers from the English garden!!!
You will find Todd and Carol off in the barn or Todd working away on an original piece of art.
Every time I visit their home it fills my senses and warms my heart.
Be prepared to want to say forever.
We've stayed at the "art farm" and it truly is an incredible place. Todd and Carol are warm and gracious hosts and the studio is very comfortable. Overall, it is a very inspirational place, artistically appointed and super cool!
