We had a lovely family getaway to Tillicum Bay Retreat a few weeks ago, towards the end of December. The weather may not have been ideal but Tillicum Bay Retreat accommodations catered just to what we needed - a time away from home to do nothing but spend time together - cooking, eating, playing game boards, puzzles, and even dancing with the kids. Even though it was nice to unplug and just be with one another we also surely appreciated the wi-fi connectivity and the free Netflix to wind down at the end of the day.
Tillicum Bay Retreat is surrounded by nature with trees all around and a stunning view of the water. The accommodations offer everything we would be looking for in a vacation home. The owners have evidently paid great attention to detail in designing the place to make anyone feel at home there. The kitchen is well stocked, which was quite important to us, and everything was kept very clean. The enormous covered deck would be a wonderful place to sit down, relax, and enjoy the view. Despite the weather, we still braved the cold to get a few maternity shots in. We also had a walk around and found the trailhead down to the beach but because of the weather decided we would try another time.
As our first time to the Sunshine Coast, the hosts could not have been better to work with. They were so available and responsive from start to finish with helpful instructions and with us every step of the way to make sure we had a wonderful time. It was an amazing, refreshing few days as a final getaway before the birth of our third child only one week later. I have already recommended this to my colleagues as a fantastic getaway so close to home. We look forward to returning in the summer when we can explore the beautiful outdoors and take a hike to the water.
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tillicum Bay Retreat. It was a very relaxing getaway, and we enjoyed the serene view of the water from the dining room.The place is surrounded by trees, making it the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of life, but still close enough to amenities and eateries to dine out. We mostly cooked at home and were pleased to find a well-stocked kitchen with everything we needed! The beds were super comfortable and the living space was warm and cozy! We will definitely be back to explore some more of the hiking trails in the area.
What a great place to spend a couple of days to unwind from our hectic schedule, The short ferry ride made us feel like we were actually away from it all. Eric and Sally were so quick to check in on us, get back to us and to accommodate our needs! It was a breeze to just kick back and relax once we were looking out the huge windows or looking out of the patio. Our group got time to do the little things like, chat, enjoy our soups, play card games and enjoy some local beer. A short drive from Tillicum bay and we were enjoying the local bakery, pubs and restaurant. Thought we were gonna get up early and go explore more, but our group just had a blast hanging out at the house! Thank you Eric and Sally for letting us enjoy your little secret place to recharge!
More than just a pretty view, spending a weekend at Tillicum Bay Retreat was a refreshing change from the hustle and bustle of city living only a short ferry ride away. It offers the beauty of nature at its doorstep, being a short leisurely walk to the beach without sacrificing the creature comforts of a cozy house with its full amenities. With three bedrooms and 2.5 baths, it was great for our group getaway of 6 without sacrificing space or comfort. The gorgeous wrap around deck with sprawling views of the inlet provided a great space for barbeques during the day and gathering by moonlight at night. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a staycation that’s full of relaxation or a fun adventure on the sunshine coast. Whatever your adventure plans are when you get to Sechelt, if you’re looking for a place to stay while there then this is the place for you!
We had an amazing getaway weekend at Tillicum Bay Resort and would highly recommend it. Wonderful for some R&R. Beautiful view and stunning accommodations. We will definitely be back soon.
