The principal change from our last visit is we were a week later & after the May long weekend this time. Last time, were almost the only guests, but this time there were a number of other guests...

Dear SARNanoose, Welcome back for your second visit. I don't know how much better a day could get after exploring Desolation Sound and then coming back to a fresh salmon. We are open all year but there is a lot we still have to do to be ready for our busy summer season. We're happy that you noticed we're ready... More

I just spent Easter Weekend with the Nanaimo Paddlers group at Taku Resort on Quadra Island overlooking famed Rebecca Spit which with Surge Narrows further north is a popular kayaking destination. But Taku Resort and Marina is so comfortable, well positioned and well-appointed with so many things to do for all ages that few of us actually kayaked. We hiked... More

Hello LynHancock, We enjoyed having the Nanaimo Paddlers up this past weekend. That is quite amusing that not many people from the paddling club actually went paddling! We strive to make nature accessible to our guests and the kayak ramp certainly did that for your friend in a wheelchair. It's hard to believe how easy it is to launch from... More

Our family including our dog spent the Easter weekend in an A-frame cabin. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed for cooking our meals. The atmosphere of the area was relaxing. We enjoyed the spectacular view of the ocean, mountains, variety of birds including eagles, seals and otters. The staff were helpful and polite. I would recommend... More

Dear Marcia P, It's great to hear you had such a nice weekend with you family, dog included. It's hard for photos to do the view and atmosphere the justice it deserves. We never get tired of the views or how relaxing it is. We're so glad you had the chance to experience it first hand. Thank you for taking... More

My 17 year old and I came to Quadra for our annual get together March 2015. It was peaceful and comfortable. Highly recommend a two bedroom suite! Just a very short stroll to the ferry to Cortes (a must do!), groceries, a nice restaurant as well as Island Cycles. Renting a bike from Jack is another must do! Taku provided... More

We visited Taku in October 2014 when it was off season. It is very quiet on Quadra Island this time of year and it was exactly what we were looking for. We stayed in a 1 bedroom terrace suite because we needed access to Internet for our business while at the same time relaxing. The view was good, even better... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in September. Great location and the room had a great view and we enjoyed our walk on Rebecca Spit. What we did find a bit disconcerting was that there was no- one to book us in, this was done by telephone. We saw no-one apart from someone who came with clean towels each day.... More

We stayed in an ocean front cabin, and we had a wonderful time. Our group were SCUBA divers from the Seattle and Vancouver areas, so we had several rooms and an RV space. Plus several dogs.

Hello Divers and Doggies. We're happy to hear you were both able to get in to the water during your stay. Most of us don't get to see the beauty of Quadra under water and I've only heard wonderful things about it. That's great you were able to host everyone in your cabin.

We popped over to explore Quadra without a reservation on a long weekend, but somehow Taku had their 2 bedroom suite available. It was a huge suite with 2 full bathrooms!

Hello Guest, Happy Anniversary and thank you for dropping in and staying at Taku. Late summer is one of the most peaceful seasons at the resort, so glad you experienced it. The only problem with late summer is that there is typically a fire ban on from early August until it rains again. Any other time of the year you... More

We have been going to Taku for six years and every visit has been thoroughly enjoyable. Apart from the absolutely breathtaking environment itself, the "family feel" of this resort is well worth recognizing. When creating Taku, the owners had a true vision of being able to share this spot with others who enjoy the relaxed beauty of the area. The... More
