We stayed in the Casablanca Room. It is decorated beautifully with a well appointed kitchenette, dining area, wood stove, full spa type ensuite and a great balcony...

We really enjoyed our stay. I am quite picky about accomodations and can honestly say that the Tuwanek checks every box, and exceeded my expectations. Comfy bed, excellent modern amentities, amazing powerful and large shower, super clean clawfoot tub, fun pedalboat, friendly owners, beautiful bay... We will definitely be back!

The hosts, Chris and Krista, were extremely gracious and helpful, yet respectful of our privacy. Our room was spacious and extremely comfortable, and Krista's breakfasts were delicious. We are looking forward...

My husband and I spent 2 glorious nights in the Timberloft cabin with our two little dogs and had the best time ever! The home was beautiful furnished and equipped with everything we needed. Beautiful sunsets and a 2 min walk to the beach. Our hosts were so welcoming we cannot wait to come back.

An excellent hotel with the best breakfasts I have ever had at a hotel. Great decor and view of the water, access to the beach through well designed outdoor space. Friendly owners. We will definitely stay here again if we travel back to Sechelt.

We loved staying at the Tuwanek Hotel! We stayed August long weekend and a few days after and our experience was great! Chris and Krista were committed to creating a wonderful experience for us!

Great cabin. Great views. Chris and Krista were great. Amazing all around would recommend to anyone. Cabin was clean, well kept and supplied and close to the water. Weather was amazing. Water was great for kayaking or just floating lazily. Night time was wonderful.
