In the forest setting enjoy the large outdoor deck with lounge chairs and a large built in bench area. Create a savory meal on the gas BBQ and enjoy under the trees in the outdoor eating area.

In the summer season, we have everything you'll need to spend your days at the beach from large beach blankets, chairs & sun umbrella, to picnic dish-ware & glasses.

On cool winter nights build a fire in the wood stove, wrap yourself in one of the many throw blankets and snuggle down to enjoy a book from the reading library.

You'll never have to worry about losing the key with our secure keyless entry and your own personal code.

A quick getaway or a long relaxing vacation, we've planned to make your time at Annaway Cottage a special memory.

Why The Owner chose Tuwanek

In 2012 my husband Wayne and I bought the cottage after a lifetime of traveling to the area for summer vacations. There is something special about this place. A calmness that surrounds you here that makes life's worries seem far away.

What makes this cottage unique

The large deck feels like your sitting up in the trees and has the sun on a portion of it all day. Just move the lounge chairs across the deck to enjoy the sun or escape the heat of the day throughout the summer season.

Each window has a view out onto the trees, the loft is just the place you always wanted to play in as a kid.

In the winters with the wood stove roaring, some great music playing in the background and an excellent read or maybe an excellent movie on Netflix there isn't any other better way to laze away a day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a lovely time staying at Annaway. From the well appointed rooms to all the great thoughtful little touches it was just great. We came here for a very special anniversary and everything was perfect. We'll definitely be back.

Delightful place !

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect and the house is so homey and welcoming; very clean and decorated with good taste (so cute), comfortable beds and everything you'd need in a kitchen (and more). We also appreciated very much the activities (loved the hikes) and restaurants that Deanna suggested. I would highly recommend this place. Deanna is very nice and easy to talk to. Thanks so much, we will surely go back!

Taken care of all details inside and outside. Home is cozy. Hot tub is nice. Enough sleeping for 6 people. Kitchen ready with all needed kitchenware. Only issue right now is the temporary construction beside the place, but I guess nothing you can do. Don't forget the hammock outside!

Owner's Response: Oh, yes, the hammock, its one of my favorite places to read and take a lazy summers afternoon nap : ) And yes fortunately the construction is only temporary. Thank you for the lovely compliments. Deanna

Another Great Stay at Annaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth time staying at Annaway, and I know it won't be our last. Dealing with Deanna is always a pleasure, and if anything ever comes up, she is super quick to respond and do everything she can to help. The cottage is perfect for our family of four (4 year old and 1 year old), and my daughter is always super excited when we get to "our cabin" :) Everything you need for a weekend or a week is right there in the cabin waiting for you, and you just can't beat having the beach right across the street. Thanks Deanna for another great stay!

Owner's Response: We couldn't ask for a nicer review Lucas. It gives me a big smile that your daughter calls it 'our cabin". Its so nice to have someone who has been staying with us through the years. I hope one day we'll be planning your 10th trip to the cottage : ) Wishing you and your family all the very best. Deanna

A dream cottage in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Immaculately clean and well appointed cottage with everything we needed and more! The best swimming beach in Sechelt is right across the street. Perfect location for bird lovers too (spotted purple martins and more). Enjoyed the hottub, the japanese soaker tub, and the hammock. Excellent host. We hope to make this our go-to cottage on the Sunshine Coast. Highly recommended!
