Tuwanek House Rental Photos and Description

Full house package, 6 bedrooms (Sleeps 16) total of 7 q beds , 1 q pull out

Thank you for checking out our cabin as your home away from home on your vacation. I've recently completed building this dream home on the Sunshine Coast, I figured why not share the luxury with everyone else? The artist is reflected in this creation, moreover the overall aura and design is something that has been admired by past renters. Some say that it's like being in a luxury shanty hut in the forest, accompanied by the beautiful lamb bay.

This beautiful west coast log home comes fully furnished with all amenities. With 6 bedrooms and 4 baths this home can accomodate large groups comfortably, moreover a large gourmet kitchen fully stocked with all your cooking needs. A dining table that sits 12 people and a office that comes with wireless complimentary internet. For the nights you feel like staying in, feel free to use the wood burning fireplace along with the theatre room located in the basement.With our new addition to our driveway there are plenty of parking spaces.

This property is perfect for couples, families, or even large coorporate groups. Their is something here for everyone weather you like to sit infront on the fire and roast marsmallows or sit on the beach and watch the wildlife do its thing. The waterfront view from this cabin is like no other, surrounded by nature its something that will not go unappreciated.

We hope this vacation rental can accomodate your future visit to the sunshine coast.

Wow, this place is just amazing! We were a family of four generations, 7 adults and 2 preschoolers, when we stayed in this beautiful home. It was absolutely spectacular and loved by all!

The location is incredible, with stunning views over the bay. We saw eagles, blue herons, geese, swallows, hummingbirds and several species of songbirds right from the deck. An otter in the bay entertained us regularly and the frogs' evening chorus delighted everyone.

The property is beautifully landscaped with gorgeous gardens following the steps down to the semi-private beach (great for beachcombing!). Several sitting areas offer rest stops along the way. There is also a small lawn area for children to play.

The house itself is outstanding. The vaulted ceilings, massive cedar log beams, 2-story fireplace, 2-story wall of windows and gourmet chef's kitchen would be a wonder in themselves, but when you add all of the high quality furnishings and art pieces, it is simply phenomenal. The views from all 3 levels are breathtaking and the beds (firm) are a dream to sleep in. The bathrooms were great (love the rain shower) and the double jacuzzi tub was a huge hit for the kids! Everything was high end.

All that said, what really makes this property shine is the warm atmosphere created by the owners. Devi was amazing right from the start, before we even arrived. She assisted us with our planning and offered great advice and support. Upon arrival, she gave us a full tour of the house and left us with an incredible array of treats and snacks. What a welcome! We felt so at home, we didn't want to leave.

Thank you, Devi, so much for sharing your wonderful vacation property with us. We truly appreciate all the effort you put in to make sure our stay was comfortable and special. It was truly unforgettable and we can't wait to return! It is one the most spectacular places we've ever stayed!

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was now our second stay at the cabin and it has now become our tradition. The house is beautiful furnished with everything you need and as a chef who caters and cooks 3 square meals a day for the 12 adults and 4 kids, it had everything I needed. (Except my own chef knives, but I'm just picky) tucked away in beautiful tuwanek the water is so calm and easily swimmable. We explored the area way more this time than last and there were so many great spots that we will make sure to come back to next year. Than you so much for such great hospitality and we will be sure to be back next year as well.

Daughter's Wedding

  • 5 of 5

This house was an ideal fit for all our family to stay for our daughter's wedding. There was ample space for everyone to get ready and the master suite was perfect for the newlyweds. The kitchen is so well appointed and had everything we needed. Also, we appreciated the play pen and high chair for our one year old grand daughter. It is such a peaceful spot and even though we had some hectic times preparing for the wedding there are lovely quiet spaces in this house to get away and enjoy the views. Our family all loved your beautiful home! Thanks so much.

A Marvelous Vacation for Our Large Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a very special vacation home in a great location where our large extended family could celebrate a special family event. We found the ideal place in Phil and Devi's gorgeous Sunshine Coast home. We were warmly greeted by Devi and who gave us a wonderful tour of the house and made everyone feel totally welcome. I was delighted to see the large dining table which had been beautifully set with a lovely, festive theme. Having a table large enough to seat all of the family was a top priority for us.

The house was perfect. The main room has a vaulted ceiling with floor to ceiling windows facing the spectacular inlet and mountains. It is obvious that a great deal of effort was put into creating the beautiful decor. The furniture, especially in the main room, was very comfortable. (I'm sure that in the winter months it is beyond comfy to have friends and family reclining on the large sectional sofa enjoying a roaring fire.) The kitchen is modern, well-stocked, and was able to handle the many cooks who took part in meal preparations. There is a BBQ on the balcony off the kitchen which was big enough to meet the barbecuing needs of our big group.

There was plenty of space for people to gather in large and small groups throughout the house and the children were able to play without disturbing adults. All of the bedrooms were beautifully decorated and comfortable, but the Master Suite was especially enjoyable because of the exquisite view from its balcony, the large whirlpool tub, and a great shower.

The walk to the beach starts with steps going down through an amazing array of plants and flowers. Partway to the beach there is a grassy play area where we could look out at the inlet while sipping drinks and letting the children play. From there a long wooden staircase takes you down to a sandy beach, which can be large or small depending on the tides. The water was amazingly warm and everyone enjoyed kayaking, canoeing, paddle-boarding, and just playing in the water. Going out onto the water in the late evening was a particularly marvelous experience.

Thank you Devi and Phil for providing us the opportunity to enjoy a memorable family celebration in your delightful home and incredible beachfront. It far surpassed our expectations.

Wonderful Thanksgiving Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 had a spectacular Thanksgiving weekend in this home. Devi and Phil - you have done such a wonderful job of capturing the stunning beauty of the West Coast in all the details of this home. Lots of privacy for everyone, great kitchen to cook in. The best thing was being able to ALL sit together at one table and enjoy our meals. We made the trip to the Skookumchuk rapids early one morning and were treated to a King tide - absolutely spectular and definitely worth the drive - and we also rented Kayaks in Porpoise Bay, which was like glass the day we went out. We saw thousands of white jelly fish, a couple of seals and eagles. This part of British Columbia is truly magnificent and having this beautiful property as a home base was perfect. Thank you again, Devi and Phil, for allowing others to share this venue.
