Our tent room had a fabulous ocean view, and we were delighted when a storm came up on our last night. The food was excellent and the staff courteous and informed. You feel as if you're on a remote island, and it's hard to believe you're only a couple of hours from Vancouver.

Great location, great property from the rooms to the cabins to the fancy yurts. The weekend will surely be enjoyable. The property is very well maintained and it is a good central point if you want to go into Sechelle or up north to the rapids. Lots to do. Very friendly staff!!

We stayed two nights in tenthouse suite #61 and loved it! When we arrived the fireplace was on and floors were heated, the place was very neat and tidy. It was November so typical coast weather, it was quite windy and rainy. If you are a light sleeper, the tenthouse might not be your best option in the fall. The...

Great place to sit and stare at the view and ponder and breathe with waves lapping at the shore and ravens and eagles soaring overhead. An excellent little place that is miles away from the mad world even though it is actually just off the highway. (Note - any desired spa services must be booked in advance).

We would definitely recommend this property for a stop along this scenic coastal route. It appears some upgrades are underway to update the guest rooms, but even if you are just looking for a special dining experience en route this location will not disappoint.

The Sunshine Coast is a favourite destination. It's a beautiful coastline with coves, beaches and forest. This resort makes the most of its location by being set in the forest, by the coastline and with great views. We stayed in a cosy cabin. It was great. The tents also looked amazing. We will stay in one next time. The staff...

There's a new chef at the resort and cannot say enough how delicious and perfectly prepared our meal was. Had the Foie Gras & tuna carpaccio for appies and the Arctic Char for our main and all was fantastic! Stayed in one of the small, cozy cabins on the water and loved hearing the ocean while laying I our bed...
