Hi. My name is Christian and welcome to my beautiful forest sanctuary on the slopes of Mt. Elphinstone in Roberts Creek on the Sunshine Coast. My property is a magical, private nature retreat created in the spirit of love and reverence for the land on which it is built. It is a sanctuary to nurture the body, mind and spirit. A place to come back to One's Self. I have taken a piece of forest and transformed it into a beautiful place with pastures, terraces, pathways, a pond and island, level campsites with sand and a communal outdoor pavilion with lounge and kitchen. This is a magnificent place to bring the kids, a wonderful place to hang with friends and family, a peaceful place for lovers and a great place to come on your own to remember how awesome and talented you really are. My campsite is located in Roberts Creek, British Columbia. Roberts Creek is a peaceful, eclectic, rural community seated between Gibsons and Sechelt, and possesses a stunning blend of beaches, forest, and some of the friendliest people you will come across. A relaxing atmosphere awaits you here, where both your artistic and outdoor adventure self is sure to feel at home.

Christians location was truly fabulous. It’s as close as you can come to glamping while maintaining the essence the Forrest. This oasis has everything you could ask for, elevated flat plots for your site, fire pits, outdoor shower, full kitchen barbecue with propane and marshmallow roasters! Check in experience was fantastic and very accommodating. I’ll be recommending this spot to all my friends and family

Best of Hipcamp
Outstanding camp with so many intentional and thoughtful details. The common kitchen was EXTREMELY well equipped, like a home kitchen. It was amazingly clean and organized. Ample and comfortable outdoor seating, numerous firepits and wood, super cool showers and composting toilets, and a variety of exquisitely considered areas to wander around the property and contemplate, listen to the sounds while walking barefoot was OUT OF THIS WORLD. Top notch. Close to Gibsons, excellent communication, clear instructions, this is easily the best of Hipcamp. Thanks so much Christian! Hats off to Susan too. Impressive.

Forest getaway!
This was a real gem, not far off the main road. It felt like we were in our own little forest - all to ourselves. So quiet and peaceful. And the stars at night were just amazing. It was just the little getaway we needed. Our host truly went above and beyond to help us feel comfortable.

This is a very well laid out campsite in a beautiful, secluded location. The facilities are really good. So convenient to have an outdoor kitchen / dining room en plain air. Just lovely. This is a safe, clean site, very suitable for families with small children or small family groups who require several tent spots. We will definitely re-visit this site. Thank you Christian for putting so much thought into your site and for opening it to the public.

I’m a bit reluctant to say how nice this place is as it’s going to get booked up and I won’t be able to get a spot, but yeah - it’s fantastic. Quiet, beautiful and a comfortable place to hang out.

Pristine campground on the coast
Christian is a wonderful host. The campsite is pristine and kept in incredibly clean and thoughtful condition. The outdoor kitchen is super convenient and had all things you would need for making a great outdoor meal. The space also served as a really nice chill out spot to hang. Christian also takes the time to get to know each group of guests and make sure they are well suited for the property (there are three campsites).

Christian has done a fantastic job at landscaping the perfect getaway! Nestled into the trees, there are beautiful,soft, flat spots perfect for tents, either in the grass or perfectly manicured soft sand tent pads. The area surrounding the forest has great seating areas to hide in the shade form the sun, a lovely water feature and soft,lush grass. Back towards the parking, there is easy access to the kitchen and a shed to lock up your food goods. The kitchen is open and equipt with all you'll need, including BBQ, 2 burner propane top, potable water, and all the pots and pans you'd need. The open seating area and table creates a great communial vibe. The shower is an experience! The bag showers provide ample hot water in and amongst the trees. Not for the shy at heart, but a perfect opportunity to be one with nature of you so choose! Christian is great communicating and keeps the place in tip top shape. We truly enjoyed our stay

Tranquil and well-kept property
Our family had a great stay at Christian's property. It is a beautiful spot that he's developed with much care and attention to detail. Christian provided a friendly and thorough introduction to the property, which we appreciated. All of the facilities are clean and well-kept. Our kids loved running in the grass and exploring the pond and island. We'd love to return one day!

We loved our stay on Christian’s property. It was beautifully landscaped and maintained and so much care and thought was put in to make guests’ experiences amazing. The kitchen area is great for cooking and has every utensil you could need. The outdoor shower and outhouse are both so cute and so well designed! Thank you Christian :) ps: be aware the road to the site is gravel and has a couple steep parts, but Christian helped us out and my Corolla had no issues after the first time.

Thank you Christian for your hospitality and a beautiful camping experience. The cooking pavilion was a great way to make new connections. I felt glad to have found such a great place to stay, far from the crowds yet close to the amenities and beauty of the Sunshine Coast. I’ll be back.

Inspiring
We had the most inspiring time. Truly. We didn’t want to leave. The barefoot walkable grass, the common outdoor cooking area, the meditative toilet, the warm forest shower and just surveying the land in general … all of it. For me, one of the best experiences! We’ll be back for sure!!!

Beautiful Space!
Our weekend at the Forest Sanctuary was incredible! You can see the attention to detail Christian has on the space, everything is so intentional and well taken care of. We felt very well taken care of from the first point of contact to the last as we headed off to the ferries. My friends and I will definitely be back to enjoy the space again.

Unique, Memorable, and Unforgetful
If I had to describe my experience with Christian and his Forest Sanctuary, the word i would choose is, memorable. The time and dedication Christian has put into his sanctuary is a reason you must stay here. I am not going to say the number of years it has taken for this sanctuary to become what it is today, that's a story you need to hear from Christian himself. Christian manifested his dream to reality. We were blown away the moment we arrived and by the time he gave us the tour of the property and described how he meticulously thought out every move, you could see the fruit of his labour. The photos do not do justice, you need fo check it out yourself. Originally, we weren't suppose to stay at Christian's place on our trip, it was a last minute addition to our vacation. When we realized we needed to come one day earlier, we noticed there was not much left for Airbnb. I truly believe things happen for a reason and one evening, I came across an ad for Hipcamp. Decided to check it out and came across this property. I'm writing this as I am at our Airbnb in Sechelt, and my partner and I both agree, we wish we had came across Hipcamp and this property before we had already fully paid for the airbnb we're at now. My partner and I have always thought about and wanted to buy a property and be able to host guests and offer a unique experience, Christian showed us what is possible. Lastly, we can not say enough about Christian. He is been a gem in more ways than just a host - he has become a friend. Trust me, you need to book your stay here! Next time we're on the Sunshine Coast, we already know where we will be staying, the Sanctuary. This place is a retreat and it's a must stay!

An experience like none other.
First and foremost, Christian is a true gentleman. Kind, warm, and welcoming from the moment I met him, I knew I was in for a great experience. Upon my arrival at the Sanctuary, I could feel the love and care radiating from the land with every step. As my first day crept into night, I got to experience a true sense of silence. The first that I’ve felt in years (after living in Vancouver my whole life). The birds hushed, the stars shone bright, and I sat in stillness. Not a car, a voice, or an animal to break my peace. The following morning, I woke up with the birds and watched the day take place right in front of me. Around me, nature naturally took its course, and I felt at one with the world. Every moment in Christian’s Sanctuary was a special one. Full of reflection, peace, quiet, and love, I would recommend this space to anybody looking for an escape from the non-stop madness of modern life. For the optimal experience, I recommend turning electronics off. Who needs speakers when the birds are singing all day for you :). I’ll most definitely be returning and am looking forward to my next stay!
