"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!"

"The log home, situated in a quiet neighborhood, is very spacious and has everything you need. We saw a deer and humming birds in the back yard. There is also a bird’s nest under the roof. These made our stay quite interesting. The owner’s instructions to use the facility are very clear.
As a log home, it is not very sound proofing. 5 star for comfort level; 4 star for cleanness (BBQ grill :P)
Overall, strongly recommended."

"On behalf of my family, 12 in all I have to say that this house was everything we had hoped it would be! Beautiful view, wood burning fireplace and lots of room for the teenagers in the family! We did not need for anything and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! We will definately be back. A perfect getaway for a short holiday!"
