Although the property and view are indeed breathtaking, our 1 bedroom suite in the lodge was quite under whelming! As my husband said "I'd be thrilled if this was 1970". The bathroom sink was chipped. The linens were lovely, however both my husband and I woke up with a sore back. If you go spend the money and stay in... More

My sister and I enjoyed a 'Galentine' weekend together (minus the men) since we SO needed some time to laugh and took advantage of the long weekend. I found Rockwater by searching other locations from a recommendation by colleague. Once I saw their website and read all the reviews and saw that it was a 5 hour drive from Seattle,... More

Rock Water Secret Resort was a place that my husband and I had wanted to get married at, but we had found another venue in Vancouver which better suited the needs of our group. As a gift on the day of our wedding, I had surprised him with a trip to the Sunshine Coast to stay at Rock Water Secret... More

Stayed in the kitty hawk tent cabin for two nights. It couldn't have been more perfect. We will be back! Is a bit of a walk so suggest packing light if mobility is any sort of issue. Is a romantic perfect getaway. Visited twice before this visit and stayed in the hotel which really is not comparable to the tent... More

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.
