Amazing Property very close to the ocean with an amazing creek side hot tub. Cottage had a cabin feel but also had modern features to make it the perfect getaway. The best part about Tuwanek is their hospitality; amazing hosts. Great honeymoon location!

We stayed in one of the cabins the Tuwanek offers " Timberloft Cottage" and it was so beautiful. The cottage had everything you would ever need and it was emmaculate and private. The owners took me on a tour of the bed and breakfast suites and I was blown away. The Tuwanek is very charming and offers old school hospitality,... More

We had booked here assuming we would be staying in the hotel, with normal hotel services, although we had made it plain to the travel agent that we were happy to self cater some of the time on this trip around the (liquid) Sunshine Coast. We found we had been allocated Wildberry Cottage, a few yards from the hotel which... More

Chris C, Owner at The Tuwanek Hotel, responded to this review

Greetings and thank you for your review. I wanted to drop you a short note as it looks like your travel agent may have booked you into a self catered cottage and not the full service hotel suites which might have been an error on their part. Our self catered cottages are designed for families and couples who are looking... More

Exceptional - you guys were absolutely amazing and quite wonderful. There isn't enough space in this box to fully describe your kindness, attention to detail, understanding of what makes a great vacation - and willingness to help. To me, the best tourism experiences happen when your hosts not only help you do what you want to do, but also anticipate... More

What a gorgeous location. We stayed in the African queen room. I could lay in the canopy bed all day staring at that stunning water view. Breakfast was super as are the hosts. I will certainly recommend to friends heading to the Sunshine Coast

We had a group of 10 adults and 4 kids so we rented 3 cottages. Our family along with another couple stayed in the Timberloft Cottage, which is a separate house from the main bed and breakfast. Staying in the cottages, you are responsible to make all your own food, but you'll have all the peace and privacy needed. There's... More

We had no idea what to expect, but when we rolled up to the hotel nestled on a sandy cove, we were very impressed. Krista greeted us warmly and showed us to our spacious room with private deck overlooking the beach and bay. We loved sitting out on the deck watching the hummingbirds feed at the nearby feeder. Breakfast was... More

We stayed in the Wildberry Cottage and it was even better than we expected. We loved all of the outdoor seating areas and the area to build a fire out the back, and it also had a BBQ and hot tub. The location was perfect. We usually had the pebble beach to ourselves, and really enjoyed taking out the pedal... More

After a booking with Airbnb turned out to be a little less than stellar, my friend and I stumbled across the Tuwanek Inn. It was just a few minutes down the street from where we were staying and as both of us were writing books at the time, we needed a tranquil place that would get the inspirational juices flowing...
