Cute Forest Cottage Just Steps From A Quiet Family Friendly Bay

Bedrooms 2
Space 800 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms and loft close to the beach in a private forest setting

The entire property and cottage are for your private use during your vacation. Decorated in 'cottage style' with your comfort and enjoyment built into each room. 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.

In the idyllic forest setting enjoy the large outdoor deck with a hot tub and lounge chairs. Create a savory meal on the gas BBQ and enjoy under the trees in the outdoor eating area. Throughout the summer season the large deck area has sun and shade from 10:00 in the morning until 4:00 at night.

The master bedroom & guest rooms each come with comfortable queen size beds and the loft area provides additional sleeping space with 2 twin beds.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a small stove and apartment sized refrigerator, microwave, kettle, toaster, cutlery, dishes, pots and pans (everything you need to make your home cooked meals). Don’t feel like cooking? Just 10 minutes’ drive to the village of Sechelt you will have a wide variety and number of restaurants to choose from.

The bathroom is outfitted with a deep Japanese soaker tub and rain shower, and towels are proved for each guest.

For quiet evenings spent indoors, the cottage comes with cable television, Netflix, wireless internet, DVD player and an IPod docking station with charger and speakers.

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

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 Deanna Udy 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.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Annaway was like being at your second home in the most beautiful setting. It offers everything you could want in a peaceful retreat. So relaxing and quiet.

The interior of the cottage is cozy and adorable and it includes a hot tub and wood stove. What more could you ask for. I stayed there with my parents from Ontario and we all loved our stay. We will definitely stay again and recommend to our friends.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

I love how the forest is all around you, you're just kind of tucked away! We really enjoyed our stay here, we were sad to leave and head back to reality. One thing to note is that the driveway is a bit steep so be ready for that, but there is a little parking spot near the bottom. Overall great place, would stay here again for sure!

A little slice of heaven tucked away in Tuwanek

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this place justice. Very tastefully decorated and cozy. The hot tub is situated in a pocket of the deck surrounded by trees. Lamb bay was a few minutes down the road and was very quiet. Deanna was a pleasure to communicate with. Will return!
