My wife and I travel to Vancouver often for work and decided to stretch our stay with a few days on the Sunshine Coast on a whim given the sunny forecast. The Sunshine coast is well worth a visit and more time, but what made our few days so memorable was staying at the Tuwanek Hotel. This is a special place. We stayed in the Casablanca Suite which we would recommend (insert bad Bogart pun here). However we were the only ones staying there so Sharon our host showed us the other two rooms in the "Hotel" and we would have enjoyed either of them as well. The Hotel is really a grand house and the attention to detail and care is more than evident. The grounds are inviting and beautiful and the ability to get on the water with their paddle boat or paddle boards is a huge plus. Sharon was an absolute delight and her breakfasts were scrumptious and served in our suite. We ate while watching eagles, hummingbirds, and other wildlife from the balcony. When we left to explore the Sunshine Coast, we could not wait to get back to this little slice of heaven. We set "deep anchors" on their beach and watched the sunset. What more can you want? We are already planning on returning with friends and will not even think about staying anywhere else. I did have one complaint for Sharon: When we took out the two paddle boards, I kept falling in the water while my wife never did. Clearly, my paddle board was defective. Sharon said "she would look into it".
