"We couldn't imagine a better location. Barb and Barry's beautiful studio suite is so comfortable and relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed the view from the comfy deck loungers and the luxurious hot tub! Everything you need is right there in this nicely equipped home. Barb and Barry are gracious hosts and we are so thankful they share their lovely home."

"We rented this property for 10 days this September. The pictures on the VRBO website do not do it justice, as the house was exceptional. Our family appreciated all the amenities and well stocked kitchen. The location was great and the views splendid. The main living was large with an open concept which was ideal for entertaining expended family members for dinners and memorable evenings., The outdoor space was enjoyed by all our adult family members."

"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!"
