Recent Sechelt reviews

  • Hidden Gem minutes from Sechelt

    "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!"

  • Quaint and Cozy

    "My husband and I stayed at Grumpy Cat Cottage for 12 nights, with our adult children and their dogs visiting for part of that stay. We found the cottage to be exactly as described; clean, comfortable, and the large property and waterfront area was enjoyed every day of our stay. It was wonderful to be able to have bonfires in the evenings (the fire ban was lifted) and John provided lots of firewood. Leslie and John left a surprising amount of groceries in the cottage which made us feel even more welcomed. We loved Sechelt and the surrounding areas and totally enjoyed exploring the many beaches and parks in that part of the Sunshine Coast. As adults, we were all very comfortable at Grumpy Cat; however, we did find the noise from the seaplanes very loud and irritating which is something one probably gets used to in time. There was also a lot of hammering and banging going on during the day from house construction next door; again, there was nothing John or Leslie could do about that and by next summer that intrusion should be a thing of the past. I would certainly come back to Grumpy Cat Cottage again but I would not bring small children or the elderly there IF needing to use the 'loft' bedroom for them. It is simply too hazardous of a climb for small children or anyone with a disability. The other two bedrooms on the main floor are perfectly comfortable. Knowing that John and Leslie were next door was a comfort if we needed anything, but they gave us our privacy and we never felt 'watched'. Overall, our vacation was a bounding success and we would love to return to Sechelt again in the near future. Thanks John and Leslie; Grumpy Cat Cottage is a lovely property."

  • Really is paradise.

    "We found that the house exceeded our expectations. The pictures don't really depict the special nature of the location or the fabulous view. We really enjoyed watching the marine activity and the birds - especially the eagle - from the balconies. Highly recommend this property as a base to explore the Sunshine Coast area."

  • Thanksgiving

    "Dearest Matilda and Ron, For the Thanksgiving weekend we chose to get away from the pace of the city, and instead joined you here at Footprints. What an inspiring decision! We napped on your daybeds, dipped in the hot tub and built warm fires while rain fell outside. C cooked a traditional Turkey dinner which we enjoyed in the sun room and slept like babies in the bedroom, which happens rarely in the city! Your home here is beautiful, and helped us create a lasting memory. We cannot thank you enough for stocking the home with everything needed for an unforgettable experience. Thank you sincerely for the warm welcome and trust with your home. We are certain our paths will cross again!"
