We have stayed at this resort for the past two years in November for a girl's getaway and it is a great spot. Located right on the beach - we chose the upper room which has a full kitchen, living room with a murphy bed and upper loft with a queen bed. The murphy bed was very comfortable. Very clean,...

We had a wonderful stay here. We had an upper beach front unit, as we were staying for a week. The balcony was excellent to sit out on and watch the ocean while sipping a morning coffee or an evening wine. This resort is right on the ocean side, with a lawn right in front and the beach just beyond.... More

We stayed for 3 nights on the upper floor with the loft which was great, because the kids could be in a separate space at night but I could still see/hear them when I wanted to. The room was updated and the kitchen was well-equipped -- not stocked with dollar store items like in some kitchenettes I've experienced but good... More

We stayed for two nights in September at Shorewater resort in a beach view lower suite. VERY clean and comfortable! It is a nice, spacious suite and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We woke to beautiful beach views each morning. The kitchen was well equipped and the bed was comfy. Thank-you Shorewater!

Beautiful room and excellent service. The unit was totally refurbished so it was modern and clean. Easy access to carpark or beach. Saw our first squirrel and racoon there, so very excited! Highly recommend eating at The Beach Cafe, just a short drive down the road - fabulous!

We stayed for a weekend at the Shorewater Resort. The building looks tired but our suite was updated with what looked like a recent kitchen, carpet and paint update.

Stayed at Shorewater Resort on Labor Day weekend. Had a lower level unit. Walk outside right onto the beach. Nicely furnished with the usually expected dishes, pots, pans, etc. Location was good. From here was able to travel to Horne Lake Caves, Courtenay, etc. Building is not new but maintainance is okay.
