Gibsons has long been touted as a great place for a day trip or weekend getaway from Vancouver, but more and more semi-retired couples are choosing to live in Gibsons. Why Gibsons? It’s close to Vancouver, only 40 minutes by ferry, is equipped with every city convenience and service, offers a relaxed lifestyle and abundant recreational opportunities.
Gibsons residents, David and Christy, were asked why they live in Gibsons, and they remarked: “We have been around the world, and we chose Gibsons. There is something really special here.” David is a sailor and loves the idea he is able to walk to his boat in the Gibsons Marina and be out on the water sailing in a matter of minutes. Christy, a fine artist who has gained a reputation for her abstract scenes of sailing on Howe Sound, finds the artistic community of Gibsons Landing a real inspiration. There are dozens more stories like this one, stories of Vancouver empty nesters who have cashed in on the big house in the city, for a better lifestyle in Gibsons, and at a fraction of the cost.

Gibsons real estate values have risen since 2015, but you can still downsize in luxury at an affordable price. The George Gibsons Residences, a limited collection of luxury condominiums will offer all of the fine interior features you would find in Vancouver. The interiors are smartly designed with quality European style appliances, integrated kitchen cabinets in three finishing options, expansive quartz topped kitchen islands, and freestanding spa style tubs in the master en-suites. But, what makes George very special, and invaluable, is the waterfront location, the panoramic harbour and parkside views, the 400+berth marina, and access to the first five-star service boutique hotel and health and wellness centre next door. A first for Gibsons, and the Sunshine Coast, the George Marine Resort and Residences is a must-see if you are looking at downsizing in affordable luxury.
