"We had 5 of us stay there and we all could not find a problem with anything! We all enjoyed our stay and will keep it in mind for next year. Great location well maintained, well provisioned and very comfortable."

"The townhouse was very clean upon arrival, and we found that all the amenities and comforts of home are there. Lots of towels for showers and hot tubbing. BBQ'd for six, and ate at the large dining table, with room to spare. Both bathrooms are very good size.
2 minute drive to Lakeside Park at Alta Lake, which is a beautiful spot, highly reccommend visiting if weather permits.
We would also recommend brunch, or lunch at the Southside Diner. Excellent food, and great atmosphere.
If given the opportunity, would definitely stay here again."

"My husband and I and our two well-traveled canines welcomed the new year at this very comfortable and well-equipped home, and enjoyed every minute of our week-long stay. Though we have visited Porpoise Bay Provincial Park off-season with our dogs on many occasions in the past, we had never driven three minutes further north along the same road to the community of Tuwanek. Our bad! Carmel Cottage is an ideal hideaway while touring the Sunshine Coast and walking/hiking its many trails, minutes from all amenities but in a very tranquil setting. We were fortunate to have a full week of dry (but cold) weather, and especially enjoyed the radiant floor heat keeping us warm. We also attracted two hummingbirds with a fresh batch of syrup in the feeder, and spent as much time watching them as the TV. Such is the charm of Carmel Cottage...
Lastly, one of the highlights of our week was walking the many trails of Hidden Grove. The trails are well-maintained, clearly marked and absolutely ideal for humans and canines alike, so much that we made a donation - tax-deductible at that! - to support the efforts of the volunteers who care for the trails.
All-in-all, a most enjoyable stay!"

"Some friends and I came to stay at the condo during our Thanksgiving break. Our families are all across the country on the East Coast so it was nice to go and stay in such a homey space during the holiday! The condo is in a great location, right near a shuttle stop that brings you to everything, close to the garage for parking, and the condo was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The wood burning fireplace and hot tub were perfect after some really cold days on the mountain. It was also really cool that we got to bring my dog as there are great walking trails in close proximity to the condo. The staff of the complex was courteous and extremely helpful especially since we had high maintenance issues like late check in and late check out. I would definitely stay there again! Enjoy your stays!"
