As always our stay at the hotel was spectacular. I cannot think of any place I'd rather be. My home away from home.

Chris and Krista go out of their way to ensure that every visit is even better than the last and will do everything they can to ensure that your visit is magical and memorable!

Just celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary, everything was lovely and very romantic!! The scenery was spectacular, and couldn't have asked for a more relaxing weekend. Chris and Krista were very gracious hosts and we will definitely be returning again when we need a special weekend away with each other.

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 massage. The Inlet, the view, the beach, the hospitality, the various premises all amazing.

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... The African Queen suite was so luxurious with an incredible bathroom and picture-perfect view - we are already talking about planning our next trip back over the winter so we can enjoy the wood-burning fireplace! We couldn't have imagined a more perfect place to relax - hope to see you guys again soon!

Room Tip: The African Queen suite has the most incredible bathroom!!!

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 with great taste and attention to detail, spacious and luxurious, and with a lovely view over the Sechelt Inlet on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. It also has a good sized balcony with room to sit, relax and enjoy the view and the tranquillity, and breakfast is served to you on your balcony. My only (minor) criticism is that there was only one armchair on the balcony even though there is plenty of room for two. But overall we concluded that this is probably the best hotel we've ever stayed in - and it was heart-breaking to have to move on.
