A real get away. So beautiful and peaceful, all you want to do is sit and look out at the water. The town of sechelt is a great spot also. People are so friendly. A lot to do here kayaking , paddle board swimming, lots of trails.

Top notch hosts! Chris and Krista are awesome at what they do, and they made our stay easy, relaxing and enjoyable. Oh, and the hotel is awesome too! Breakfast served in our room overlooking the ocean was just perfect. We'll definitely recommend The Tuwanek to our friends and family.

We stayed at Creekside cottage and it was every bit as fantastic as the pictures. Everything we could have thought to need was already provided and more. Stunning location right by a pebble beach ideal for launching kayaks and evening dips in crystal clear warm water. X

Like staying with old friends in a heritage home/hotel, beautiful room, comfy bed and awesome private patio to watch the sun set while sipping on a glass of wine. We took advantage of the onsite spa after a day of golf nearby, to say it's a nice way to spend the day is a huge understatement. I have to mention... More

Friendly, top-notch service in a beautiful space and location! The owners, Chris and Krista, have thought of every detail to create an enjoyable, pampering and relaxing get-away. Tuwanek is an ideal place for couples to get-away and recharge.

First of all, the service is top-notch. Chris was quick to answer any questions or issues we had both before, during, and after our booking for a family getaway. My husband, two kids (ages 2 and 5) and my parents (65+) stayed at the fully furnished, and completely cozy Creekside Cottage. There are two bedrooms for the adults and then... More

Loved our time at this quiet and tranquil hotel. Beautiful location and a stunning room, just wish we could have stayed longer! Would definitely grab the chance to go back there if ever back in BC. Probably more of an adult hotel.

Beautiful place and warm hospitality to match. The location and views are exceptional. We enjoyed seeing and hearing seals frolicking while we had our breakfast. A kayak, stand up paddle boards and peddle boat are available at no extra cost as were snacks in the well equipped Club Room, which included pool and chess tables. The breakfasts were superb.

Outstanding! We would come back to BC , just to stay here. It doesn't get any better than this. Chris & Krista are exceptional hosts. Just wish we had booked longer. Try the African Queen or Cassablaca suites. - you will not be disappointed Chris & Jude England
