Our freshly renovated cabin is laid out as a bright 1 bedroom with modern bathroom and kitchenette. The cabin is bathed in sunlight and has stunning ocean views plus it's own private garden with a stream running through it. With a queen sized bed plus an L shaped couch to lounge on that turns into an additional queen sized bed our cabin can accommodate both families and friends as well as couples looking for a secluded get away. We like to call it modern rustic with the blend of exposed beams, vaulted ceilings and modern finishings it's warm inviting and made for relaxing.

The bedroom has french doors that open out into the river garden and overlook the forest, the bed is comfy and our down duvet will keep you warm at night. The bathroom has a shower stall, with a view over the river. The kitchenette includes a small fridge, 2 burner induction stovetop, toaster oven, toaster, microwave, coffee and tea making facilities and all utensils needed for cooking outside on the stainless steel BBQ in your own private secret garden. The open plan living area has a view of the inlet and the local mountains and is the perfect place to feast on seafood or sip on a glass of wine as the afternoon sunlight filters through.

Tuwanek is famous for it's world class scuba diving and calm water kayaking. Feel free to bring your own kayaks, we can provide storage. The beach access is a short stroll down a tree lined path which is perfect for sun lovers and provides safe swimming for all. For those wishing to hike or 4x4 enthusiasts directly above us is the Tetrahedron Provincial Park which has a multitude of high altitude lakes and alpine hiking on amazing trails.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This little retreat far surpassed our expectations. It's very private and so quiet and serene beside the little stream. Directly across the street is a beautiful sandy beach. The suite was spotless and had all the essentials for a weekend away. Definitely recommended.

Great little cottage beside a 'babbling brook'

  • 4 of 5

It was 'love at first sight'....A cottage surrounded by trees, beside a

small stream ( brook). Can take a short walk and be seaside.

A fully equipped kitchen for preparing meals.

I would return again !! Only a 10 minute drive to Sechelt for groceries.

However the TV was 'limited' because one can only watch netflex.

A wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a find! This great little cabin exceeded our expectations and is even better than the photos! My partner and I spent 2 nights here while mountain biking around the Sunshine Coast. The cabin is fully equipped, very cozy, private and clean. The outdoor/bbq area was fantastic. Going to sleep each night listening to the nearby stream was very peaceful and the beach access is just across the street. The owners are professional, it was well priced and we would definitely recommend!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay here . It's got everything you need and very clean place. My husband forgot his comfort pillow that he had for 35 years and the owner sent it thru mail right away without any hesitation.This is an excellent customer service. Will definitely go back and recommend this place to all our friends!

Cozy, romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this cabin for about two weeks for our honeymoon. Upon arrival, we met both Annika and Steve (owners of the cabin) who are very friendly, personable, and genuine people. The cabin is very clean, has a good view of the mountains and Sechelt Inlet, and has a very comfortable bed. Everything listed in the description was included. If you're looking for either adventure there is a paddle board/kayak/canoe rental right down the road as well as several places to go hiking nearby. If you're looking for something more laid back, it's a great place for walking or just looking out at the beauty of the Sunshine Coast.

A Gem on the Sunshine Coast - Perfect for a Family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cabin last summer and it was the perfect getaway for our family (2 adults, 2 kids). There is a quiet and family friendly beach area right across the street, which we frequented often and yet we were a short drive from the town of Sechelt and Porpoise Bay Provincial Park. The cabin itself is cozy, comfortable, clean and bright. The futon worked really well for the kids and we all enjoyed listening to the nearby stream when we went to sleep. A truly wonderful stay and very affordable too!

Relaxing week on the Sunshine Coast

  • 4 of 5

Located in striking distance of all the great spots on the coast, this cabin was ideal for a relaxing and private stay. Well finished and equipped with an outdoor eating area it was a perfect spot. The owners were good to their word of creating a private space for their guests. Would certainly recommend for couples.
