Sechelt cottage description

Welcome to our little piece of paradise! We're located in the tranquil neighbourhood of Tuwanek, which is a ten minute drive alongside Sechelt Inlet from the town of Sechelt. A truly peaceful community where one can virtually hear the quiet of the surrounding area, the place is situated in a way where the only views are of forest, mountain, and ocean.

There are two beaches, one on either side of us, both just a five minute walk to reach them. Outside the back door are trails and roads heading up into Mt.Richardson and Tetrahedron Parks. The Sechelt Inlet is very popular area for scuba-diving and kayaking, the Tetrahedron area has hiking,and ski-trails throughout. There are a number of quality mountain-biking trails throughout the area as well.

Quality workmanship throughout this custom built home (completed in 2010) includes premier fir wood finish on all window and door trim and baseboards, the deck is covered and framed with posts and railings of fir, the exterior is wrapped with old growth cedar which has a furniture-like finish, and pine ceilings throughout the house. This all gives the place a truly woodsy yet luxurious feeling.

The sunsets are especially enjoyable - how they make the ocean glow, and how the sunbeams shoot through the trees, then lighting up the fine woodwork of this home.

Amenities include;
-radiant floor heat throughout and a woodstove for the cooler nights
-full custom kitchen, large sunny space
-large, covered patio, well suited for outdoor dining, includes a propane barbeque
-bathroom has a jacuzzi tub with two shower-heads, and beautiful stone tile surrounding
-one big bedroom and loft bedroom...queen size bed in each room, another double pull-out available as well
-living room has a 40' HDTV and DVD with ipod compatibility and surround-sound speakers
-High-speed wireless internet
You can get here by car, bus, plane, or even on foot or by bike. (by bus or plane would also require a taxi ride)

Feel free to e-mail or call for more details, directions, or advice. We'll do our best to make sure your stay is as seamless and enjoyable as can be.

Much regards, Don & Mary
