We dropped the kids off at the YMCA Elphinstone summer camp on the Sunshine Coast and then embarked on a 5 day grown up camp :-) 3 nights at the WCWL in egmont and 2 nights at the Painted Boat. Overall I would recommend the WCWL but I would actually recommend both.
Positives on the Painted Boat:
Room size of course. We got a two bedroom townhouse with an extra loft = 2 balconies and full amenities with full harbor view. We also paid a lot for this two and invited friends from Washington State to drive up and stay with us.
Kayak rentals are a very nice touch. You do pay extra for them but it is awesome that they have these Kayaks ready to go. We simply went back to the main check in desk and signed the paperwork and they radioed a person that helped us with everything. Nice Kayak around the harbor and we only did it for about an hour but I could of done if for a lot more if I was by myself.
Staff was very professional, nice and helpful with everything. There must be something in the glacier feed waters off of the Sunshine Coast because the people at both WCWL and Painted Boat were outstanding and better yet = genuine!
Really it comes down to the value and the cost you must spend and I can tell you the suite we got makes a lot of sense if you can split it with a second couple or family.
