This special cottage was built in 1920 for Robert Stephens, an early settler. The walls and floors are built with old growth fir and still retain their warmth and character. It has been totally renovated with a love for its history. Stephens Creek runs through the property and Stephens Beach just round the corner with downtown Roberts Creek a 5 min walk away. Unique with its water view, woodlands and bubbling creek.

The Matthew's Cottage was outstanding! Everything was better than we could have imagined. Sally was an outstanding host, the cottage had everything we needed and more, and the property was far better than we could have imagined. The yard, the barbecue, the gardens, everything was…

Matthews cottage is a little gem! A beautiful heritage cottage, on a pristine lot, with an ocean view, yet steps from amenities. Lots of thoughtful and quirky retro decorations. It was absolutely lovely and perfect for our weekend.

I absolutely love this place and cannot say enough good things about it. It is situated on a peaceful, private piece of property with forest, an ocean view, and a creek running through it. The cottage itself has a beautiful ambience and feels like being back in time. I loved …

We had a great stay in the beautiful Matthew's Cottage – wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable place with heritage character to stay on the Sunshine Coast. Communication with Sally was exceedingly easy and the cottage was well-equipped for cooking …

Loved Sally's place in Robert's Creek. Cute, cozy old place that has been brilliantly renovated giving it modern conveniences while keeping its old-school charm. Warm, bright, and a well-organized kitchen. Loved it!

Response from Sally:
Thanks Michelle, this place is such a heart place for me. I bought if from Mr. Richard Matthews and his father bought it in 1946. He recently passed away, but he was the kindest and sweetest man and I think that is what lives in this place. I too have been to many rentals and found the kitchen lacking, I'm glad that you found it supporting your love for food, it was definitely an intention, and I am a lamp collector. I'm so glad that you both loved it, it feeds my heart.

Place was in a great location for us. Kitchen was well equipped. Place took a couple days to warm up as it appears mot to be winterized. Unfortunately our stay ended on a bit of sour note. Sally attempted to make an $80 claim on our security deposit for a small dent in the wall,…

Response from Sally:
I would like to say that we differed on our perception of the damage and that I was willing to negotiate the cost for repair, unfortunately there was not reception for that. You were my first guests and I am grateful that others followed who shared a different experience. The cottage was built in 1920, and if I had removed the windows and replaced them with double pane it would be winterized but the original windows are so beautiful that in the renovation I preferred to not do that. Beauty and history.
