"Absolutely will not be disappointed! The most well stocked rental property we have ever visited! Beautiful, clean and modern bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen areas. Our fave part was having a group BBQ on the giant deck with a view of the inlet. Absolutely stunning sunsets! The kids were perfectly happy having most of their time when at Seaview Lodge spent downstairs with the abundance of DVD's and XBOX games and we couldn't hear a peep :) Will definitely stay longer next time. The owner was very accommodating to work with and clearly takes pride in this property. Would recommend to groups and families with kids/babies, you will find everything you need. Already planning our next stay..."

"If you are looking for a beachfront vacation home for your family and friends to stay and have a great time together, look no further! This house has everything you need and more. The view is breathtaking and the house is so clean and well-maintained. There are seven beds in the house (two of them are queen size, I believe); it was more than enough for us, a party of 7 adults and 1 child. (We rented the whole house. Smaller parties can rent either the upper or lower unit.)
The beach is literally at your doorstep and at night time, the sound of waves breaking will put you to sleep like the best lullaby there is.
If you forgot to bring anything, not to worry! Grocery (IGA) and liquor stores are only 10-min drive away. ;)
Wish we could've used the jacuzzi outside but we had no access to it. But nevertheless, we are more than content about our stay here. The site manager, Mary-Ann is so friendly and helpful. She will answer any of your questions about the property and rental with no hesitation. We highly recommend this gorgeous place for a weekend getaway or friends' reunion trip.
Thanks for all the wonderful memories! :D"

"This waterfront Cabin has everything you need including the warm hospitality of the owners.
The lovely grass sitting area with the fire pit on the water is magical. No matter where you sat you had a picture window view of the water. Wood is always available for an indoor fire. The compost toilet is state of the art and no fuss for the visitor as the owners do the care.
We plan on returning to this little bit of heaven."

"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!"
