We are centrally located on the Sunshine Coast, only a 40-minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay, on a spectacular 10-acre ocean view property. We run a small, organic farm as well as host guests in a wide assortment of interesting tiny homes. We have everything from a converted schoolie with a woodstove and an ocean view to gorgeous, furnished campsites in the woods. Check out our micro cabin, glamping tent, and new additions, like our luxury tent trailer, bell tent, and furnished campsites in the forest. Our property is an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Enjoy our recreation area with a large pond, as well as our small orchard with several small ponds, walking trails, and even a seasonal waterfall. There are many spots on the property to sit and chill. We've also been Airbnb hosts for over 10 years.

Best Kept Secret
I highly enjoyed staying on Karen & Kito's property during the heavy snow fall - it really felt like a winter wonderland. The place was well equipped and cozy, and lots of firewood was given to us for our stay. The hosts were hospitable and quick to communicate back. Truly a treat of a retreat. ✨💟

Karen and Kito covered all bases with this campsite! Private location was great and everything you need is right at the site. Such a unique place to stay and we will be here again next year.

Had such a lovely stay on the converted school bus. It's equipped with everything you could need & clear instructions regarding the property/bus- wish we stayed longer than just one night! Will definitely book again on Karen & Kito's property if we're in the area.

Luxury Glamping Tent in the Woods
Magical and peaceful
Such a magical and peaceful location! Very private spot in nature. The spacious tent and outdoor kitchen were very well equipped for all my camping needs, with special touches like candles, good books, and games, without being cluttered. The hosts were kind and helpful. The solar powered trail lights were lovely. I expected them to be annoying because I love a dark location, but instead they felt soft and magical. Be sure to walk the loop trail!

Lovely spot!
Incredibly friendly staff and owners...very willing to help even when not asked! Some difficult terrain for those with a bad knee, mattresses were too thin for me (but I may just be a princess), some solar lighting was fading or off by my mid-evening visit to the composting toilet! Thoughtful items at the tent site...cooking was easy! Really cool concept. We wish the owners and staff all the success!

Cute glamping but not private
This place is super cute and they have obviously put a lot of thought into it. The campsites are very close together. Luckily we were the only ones there that night, otherwise it would have felt pretty awkward and not private at all. The car was parked down the road but we were going to have to move it all the way down to the entrance for the second night which felt to inconvenient so we opted to leave. We typically go backpacking so for us the benefit of car camping is to have all your stuff close by which wasn’t the case. I think this is a great option if you’re new to camping and don’t have your own gear. She provided everything from the tent, sleeping pad, cook stove, dishes, to table & camp furniture. Also great for folks who want access to a bathroom and shower. These things aren’t high on our list so we found a more private and primitive spot nearby.

Loved this peaceful stay. The wall tent was well equipped, clean, easy to find, but nice and private. I liked adventuring around the whimsically decorated property and plan to go back and stay in the repurposed school bus or the micro cabin as soon as I can. Tiny Secrets is within a 5-10 minute drive of lots of beaches, parks and a store, so lots of bases were covered. Everyone on the property was friendly.

Deluxe wall tent
We loved our stay at Karen and Kito’s place. They thought of everything including hot water bottles lol which were a welcome addition after many hours spent on a motorcycle. This is tenting extreme lol… not exactly roughing it A very comfy bed, power station to recharge devices, bbq, camp stove, propane heater, wood stove, electric cooler and all required cookware. It was so peaceful -truly a special place.

Luxury Tent Trailer in Shady Oasis
Thoughtful unique glamping options
This organic farm with multiple options for glamping - not just lodgings but a labour of love. Stayed in this wide, comfortable tent trailer with large, attached screened cooking area - stove and BBQ! Comfortable and warm for cooking & sleeping, even in pouring rain and cold nights. Words for this organic farm glamping: beautiful, unique, inventive, private, artistic, peaceful, thoughtfully and creatively designed. Well-equipped kitchen tent - water containers. Friendly, helpful and super responsive hosts. Price is right. Recommended!

Family camping trip
Loved the tent - what a convenient way to camp - just show up! They have thought of everything, from bbq, gas stove, kettle, hot water bottles, books and games etc. The bed is really comfortable. It’s very rustic and we could not figure out how to shower but that’s half the charm. The 2 dogs are gorgeous and friendly and my son adored them. Great location near amazing lakes and hikes. We loved having a bin fire each night.

Relaxing with the birds.
We had a great time! The tent was well equipped and in a private location. Lots of different birds in a lush green forest. We loved having our coffee in the am in the chairs on the deck.

We loved our stay in Karen and Kito’s super creative and well designed Micro Cabin at Tiny Secrets. Quiet, cosy, comfy. Went on gorgeous hikes just a few minutes drive away, loved eating outside on the deck, and the brilliant cabin design that’s functional and fun. We hope to come back again!

Romantic Bell Tent in the Forest
Loved this very private and gorgeous campsite (glampsite?)! The bell tent was roomy; we had no trouble fitting a single airbed in addition to the double airbed (with comfy foam topper) that was already in situ. Kitchen was well equipped and under a mesh sided tent which came in handy for the rain. Communal kitchen area had everything additional one might need. Scrupulously clean, especially the composting toilet and shower areas. Hosts were great with quick communication and the other people living at the campground (folks there to work on the farm, WOOFers, I think they're called?) were super friendly and very helpful.

Bus is clean and complete. Owners were friendly and quick to respond to questions / emails. Nice and quiet at night. We came with our teenage son, but the bus is better suitable for a couple (not much privacy).

Had a great experience. The hosts provided so many extra amenities it was great. Fresh water, a private composting toilet and sink. A bbq, all the kitchen utensils you might need, including a kettle and a French press for morning coffees, an electric cooler to keep food cold. The tent also had a wood heater and an electric heater, and plug-ins just including usb plug ins… 🙌

The tent and the site was beautiful, it had everything anyone could need - cooler, seasonings, cutlery, pots, firewood, first med kit, wifi on property and exterior outlets. No knife or lighter, but we brought our own. The hosts were very hospitable and helped us with everything we asked for. There was a warning for bears but they didn’t bother us during our stay. We didn’t have a car and arrived by buses and taxi, on the way back we just walked back to the bus stop which is doable (~50 min walk). Great place!

Magical Forest Furnished Campsites
Karen & Kito are just getting started on their dream of sharing this beautiful land with anyone who wants to come and visit. They've created so much already, with a wide range of little hidden spots and sites to stay in - everything from microcabins and A-frames to converted skoolies and beautiful bell tents. The property itself is well situated, with lots of parks and beaches to explore nearby. Halfmoon Bay general store is 10 mins down the road and the town of Sechelt is only a 20min drive. I visited after a ton of unseasonal rain and the roads up to and throughout the property were steep, muddy and hard to navigate in my 2WD. Check the forecast and speak to the owners beforehand if you're concerned about the limits of your vehicle. The Furnished Camping sites are going to be fantastic, but are not quite there yet. The sites are a short uphill walk from your car, along a muddy track. Most things are provided (hence "furnished"), but you will still need to carry food, sleeping bags etc. When I visited, there were plans to install a bear cache and a grey water disposal/washing up sink in the communal area but those were not yet in place. The land has only recently been cleared for these sites and is bare mud - I would recommend gum boots or something similar if there is even a chance of rain during your stay. With 10 acres to explore and so many 'Tiny Secrets' to find on Karen & Kito's property, I have no doubt that these camping sites will soon be a favorite with families looking to explore the Sunshine Coast.

Very beautiful and cozy on the inside. With everything provided, it felt very luxurious to just rock up and enjoy the experience, rather than faffing around with setting up a tent. Unfortunately, the site doesn't have any grass or gravel ground cover. Due to the rain, it was extremely muddy and care had to be taken while cooking, moving around camp, and getting in/out of the tent. Hopefully, this will be remedied soon. Everything provided is top quality and Karen & Kito were a joy to talk to - we really enjoyed our stay.

New Micro Cabin with Woodstove
Perfect Cozy Cabin Getaway
Karen and Kito have created this magical, wholesome, mystical experience on their property on the Sunshine Coast. When you stay here you don't just get to stay in an Ocean View RV, you get to have this blissful experience roaming through their orchard, meeting people by the communal campfire, loving on their sweet dogs + watching their beautiful garden grow. They wholeheartedly believe in community and creating a place of healing, relaxation and peace. I coudln't recommend staying at one of their locations more! The Micro Cabin itself was simply perfect. It was so cozy, and comfortable and everything we needed for a weekend away. The aesthetic and build of the cabin were incredible, it's like everything was thought of and planned for. So much detail in such a small space <3 I'd love the opportunity to stay here again and have the experience all over again! There is also so much near their property including Smugglers Cove, Sechelt, and a few northern hikes that are super easy to get too! Karen and Kito also have a few trails on their property, and I cannot wait to go back to see how it has grown!
