We stayed in a single cabin on the beach with our dog for 3 nights. What an awesome little get away. Morning walks on the beach, hanging out on the dock, and just relaxing in the lounge chairs watching the water. I cannot say enough about this place. Friendly staff, super clean and a fully stocked kitchen...they even left us treats and towels for our dog. Great trails nearby, Rebecca spit is visible from the cabins and is an amazing place to explore. Thank you Taku resort for an amazing stay. We will be back.

Went to Quadra Island in our motorhome. BC ferry staff are great at tucking you in on the ferry, knowledgeable & friendly bunch of folks! Booked a site at Taku resort. It was a little small cause we’re rather big but we managed to settle in. The site could have used a bit of a pruning on the vegetation but keeping up with that would be a full time job in the growing season. Power, water & sewer hookup was great except the amps could be more. But again when we popped a breaker we just went to the box & flipped it back on. Taku resort is beautiful! The bay on where Taku is situated is pristine & postcard perfect! I got to peek in some of the rooms thanks to the staff. Lovely, spacious, modern, with beautiful finishes. Decks with hammocks & patio furniture! Could have moved right in! Played bocce down by a sweet boat that was built for children to play in. So fun for the family! Benches and lawn chairs are dotted thru out for you to enjoy the views. The whole place is just a gem! A person should really go & unwind here. Read a book, paint, hike, just relax! The staff are so nice & the grounds are beautiful.

Dear Katathome, Thank you for complimenting the BC Ferry staff, they do work hard at getting the ferry packed as thightly as possible and it's nice that you noticed. I think they enjoy playing Tetris with the cars. They don't get as much credit as deserved, especially after this busy summer. We are hoping to get a 2nd ferry next year that will double the schedule. Fingers crossed! I will take note on the prunning of the sites and the amperage issue. We appreciate how understanding you are with both of these issues. We're very pleased that you enjoyed the surrounding beauty and everything that our little resort has to offer. We hope to see you again. Sincerely, Elizabeth Wong

This is a small group of A frame cabins and a small building with a group of rooms all of which are extremely rustic and minimal by today’s standards. The place has virtually no WiFi and should either notify people on their website or get a tech person to install WiFi extenders/transmitters and get real WiFi. It is not enough to say you have internet and then advise people when they check in that the signal is weak (unusable and frustrating is more accurate) unless you go to their office, that is, if the office is open. Not acceptable anymore guys. Either advise people that you really don’t have internet or get the upgrades. And tell the provincial government that you can’t run a resort - even in a rustic, beautiful place like that- without dependable internet. Beautiful place but not my cup of tea.

Dear johnhjackj We're very sorry that your expectations weren't met while visiting with us. Unfortunately due to our location our internet service is extremely limited with all the boosters and the highest speed package. The service does lack in comparison to urban areas. Gulf Island Cable was recently bought by Telus so we hope this means our service will be greatly improved in the future. That said, we could definitely highlight our resort more as a place for "Digital Detox" so guests are better prepared for the limited connectivity. We apologize for not making this more clear to you before you made your booking. I think as locals we are used to the service level and may not realize how jarring it is for some guests who have high expectations for connectivity. Surprisingly our business can manage without better internet and cell service especially because some guests appreciate being forced off their devices. But as you said, it's not everyone's "cup of tea" and I can understand that. We will speak with the team about adequately alerting guests before they book and we will adjust the information on our website. We're glad you were able to see the beauty of our destination but unfortunately it comes at a cost of internet and cell-service. Sincerely, Elizabeth Wong

This was our second stay. Last year we enjoyed a tent site (and booked an extra day because there was so much left to be explored). This year we brought our parents along and shared a terrace unit with them. Our entire company of five (one 3-year-old, two 30-year-olds and 2 well... grandparents :) ) enjoyed every aspect. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The kitchen exceptionally well equipped. The atmosphere is splendid and unique. My daughter cannot stop giving hugs every time we pass by 'the girl reading her ABC book'. We are not boaters, so I cannot speak for the dock amenities, but the kayak rental service was flawless. I understand that some reviewers do not like the fact that the office may be closed or that you may have to launch your own kayak. Me personally, I consider this a breezy kind of freedom that I actually enjoy :) Since I am a gardener, I really appreciate the work that went into building the natural surroundings. The planted gardens harmonize so well with the forest that I spent a lot of time just strolling the grounds, enjoying the atmosphere. As a sidenote, we forgot to bring my daughter's toybox. And she didn't even notice: there was that much to see and do for her :) To the delight of some other guests, we caught lots of imaginary fish off the playboat and roasted them into imaginary delights at the stone house. The location is fantastic: short drive from Chinese Mountains, Rebecca Spit accessible by kayak, car or bike. Groceries at walking distance. Yes. We will be back next year :)

Hello Nanaimo Thomas, Thank you for the wonderful review. It sounds like you all had an idyllic vacation with us. We're very happy that we could meet all your needs during your stay. The girl reading the book is my cousin, she's actually getting married soon! That's how long the statue has been there. Thank you for the compliment on the garden, we've tried our best to have the landscape blend in and to have something on the property blooming at all times. Look forward to seeing you here again, Elizabeth Wong

Very friendly and helpful staff. The cabin we rented was clean with a great view of the ocean. We had booked for 3 nights, but, had to leave after 2 nights due to an emergency at home. Even though we checked out late, they only charged us for 2 nights. The cabins are also dog friendly. Would definitely stay again.

Dear Bruce, Thank you for your lovely review of your stay in the Beachfront Cabin. We hope that next time you get to enjoy your entire stay. I find that three nights is the amount you need to really start to relax and who doesn't need that? Cheers, Elizabeth Wong
