Over the years we and other family members have stayed at The Tuwanek Hotel and two of the cabins. Each time has been a wonderful experience. We have also used the Spa and have found that the massage practitioner makes you feel so comfortable and as if you have known each other for a long time besides giving a great... More

We stayed at the Blue Heron house for 3 nights. Not long enough. Went crab fishing with Sam. He was an excellent host and guide. We saw seals and dolphins. Sharon gave us a tour of other places to stay and the selection is awesome. Different themes and houses. We would love to go back and stay longer.

My (new!) husband and I had the most amazing, relaxing stay at the Tuwanek. Chris and Krista were such friendly hosts and the setting was so relaxing and peaceful - from the incredible breakfasts on the balcony to early-morning paddleboarding with the resident seals, and our sunset picnic on the beach, this is a very special place...

Sadly we had only one night at the Tuwanek - if we'd known what it was like we would have planned to stay longer. In Britain it would be called a guest house rather than a hotel as it's a large private house and has only three guest rooms. We stayed in The African Queen and it is magnificent. Furnished... More

They run the Best Spa. This was just THE BEST place to stay. Centrally located to everything north and south if you wish to explore the... More

The staff was very friendly. The treehouse had all the amenities available. Hot tub was great. Kitchen had dish washer. Apple TV was great too. Only down side is the very very loooong stairs. Will visit again!

Breakfast on our own balcony, incredible shower, stunning room, peaceful surroundings, right on the beach. It was outstanding. We stayed in the Casablanca room and the owners were lovely and relaxed. We took wine down to the garden and enjoyed sitting in the deck chairs overlooking the beach. We will be returning with guests. Thank you Tuwanek!

We spend a couple of nights at the Casablanca suite last weekend. Everything about this place is great. Beautiful room, delicious breakfasts and gorgeous views! It was a perfect little getaway. Definitely recommend.

Our first time to Canada's Sunshine Coast and our lodging choice was a real winner. The Tuwanek Hotel is located on a picturesque inlet away from any hustle but still close enough to the great scenic and adventure areas. Breakfasts were wonderful, amenities were outstanding, view was soothing and delightful, decor sumptuous. Great base for touring and great hideaway as... More
