“Great way to spend a weekend in Sechelt!”
Reviewed 1 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

5 of us spent the weekend at Tuwanek Timbers and had an excellent time during one of the hottest weekends so far this year. The canoe and kayak let us paddle around the inlet, lay some crab nets and spend some time on what felt like our own private beach. We used the hot tub (with the temperature turned down it was actually pretty refreshing) and the enclosed fire pit in the back yard in the evenings. The cabin itself is rustic but the beds are comfortable and there was plenty of space for the 5 of us to cook communal meals and hang out.

“Needs a bit more”

Five of us booked this cabin for two nights to do some mountain biking in the area. The place is decent. There is a hot tub, bbq, outdoor eating area, etc. It is not fancy, but a rustic cabin. The only real issue I had with the place was the lack of towels. There were exactly five towels, one for each guest. This meant you had to hot tub and then shower with the same towel. And, almost no hand towels in the bathroom. I am not sure why there were so few towels but all the guests were quite frustrated. It would have been nice to have outdoor/hot tub towels in addition to bathroom towels.

Management Response
12 Jul 2014
Thank you for your recent review of our cabin. We're sorry that you were surprised by the number of towels left. We advise on our website that we ask guests to bring their own beach towel, we have now also added that detail to our TripAdvisor website.

We leave a hand towel for each guest, as well as a facecloth. The extras may have been missed as they were tucked in the bathroom drawer.

Our guests' opinions do matter, thanks for the feedback.

“Cozy accomodation in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This house rental was perfect for us and our young children. Very cozy and relaxing place to spend a long weekend. The wood fire stove was perfect on damp days and the hot tub was great to spend an evening in. Owner were very accommodating and kind. We would definitely stay again.

“Fanatstic getaway for a family”
Reviewed 10 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Lori was extremely helpful. The cottage had everything we needed. There's a lovely quiet beach less than a five minute walk away that was great for swimming. A canoe and kayak were provided, enabling all six of us to paddle together to another secluded beach further up the shoreline (about a 45 minute trip each way). We even say a seal on the way!

Lori makes the booking easy and the rental has everything we need - including a great outdoor hot tub (perfect for our yearly November visits!).

It's an ideal spot to getaway from Vancouver for the weekend and just relax with some friends, some board games and the fire.
