Wonderful resort on the Sunshine Coast. Would be a great place to go to in the spring, summer and early fall, even with younger children, as there is an outdoor pool, rocks to climb over and it is right by the waters edge so paddling or swimming in the ocean is an option. There are a number of other summer... More

We have stayed in the tents several times since they opened in 2006. This trip was our 21st anniversary so we chose the special Kittyhawk Cove tent 65 which is located at the end of the boardwalk and quite a few stairs down. At some point they have started charging a $50 premium for the most waterfront tents. We didn't... More

My boyfriend and I booked a tent suite at Rockwater for our 5th anniversary through BC Ferries. It was a slightly better deal to book with BC Ferries, with the ferry cost included. We asked BC Ferries to make a request for a nice tent for our anniversary but did not want to pay the $100 waterfront tent reservation fee;... More

We just returned yesterday from Rockwater Secret Cove, we stayed for 2 nights. The cottages are beautiful and this place is amazing. Melanie at the Front Desk goes the Extra Mile for you, she is just a sweetheart. The restaurant food was very good, we will return. We also lucked out as the weather was fabulous. Nice peaceful place, next... More

Amazing location on the water. Staff was extremely helpful, warm, and inviting. Even if you decide to opt for an oceanview room, a walk out to the tents is worth it to see what you should book next time.

The view is gorgeous, the setting is romantic, the tents are cozy and fun, the spa was relaxing, the restaurant delicious. A perfect get-away. I only stayed for one night and felt rejuvinated and stress-free by the next day.

We booked this trip for a little 2 night get away after a half marathon in Vancouver. We have wanted to stay in the tent suites at this resorts for years after seeing an article about the resort in the newspaper. The resort lived up to expectations. The location was perfect, remote, peaceful, beautiful and close enough to town for... More

I really didn’t know what to expect… Booking online sometimes can leave you worried (I will say, their website lacks photos of the layout of rooms and resort). But…when we pulled up to Rock Water Resort, we were greeted by amazing staff at the front desk and this friendly vibe followed us through the entire weekend! Front desk staff gave... More

I usually don't overnight where I DJ, but this was a special trip. The tent and dance floor looked fairly plain when I arrived many hours ahead of schedule, but after the venue and I had put everything together it was a picture right out of a fairy tale. It is a ceremony location that simply outdoes everything else, and... More

We just got back from a 3 night stay at Rock Water and it was amazing. It was a mid week get away so nice and quiet. We had a cabin that was right on the bluff with unobstructed views. They are so pet friendly that our dogs even got a welcome package that included dog bags, tags and treats!... More
