Welcome to the The Scuba Shack located in the community of Tuwanek, approximately 12 km (7 miles) from Sechelt, situated on the eastern side of Sechelt Inlet at the foot of Mount Richardson. The name is derived from Tuwanek, one of the 4 divisions (septs) of the Sechelt Nation. The Sechelt Indian salmon hatchery and a world-renowned scuba diving site (Tuwanek Point) are also nearby. With its rustic character and country charm, this cottage accommodation provides full amenities to make your stay pleasant and comfortable.

Sweet & Tranquil

  • 5 of 5

Spent the weekend here for a ladies' trip and it was fantastic. Secluded but not so far away from things that it's too far of a drive. The cabin is perfectly stocked (way better than most places I've experienced - hairdryer, espresso machine w/ coffee, sugar, flour, all small appliances, hand mixer, fire making supplies, lanterns, flashlights, and more) with anything we could possible need to make our stay super comfortable. A dip in the hot tub was the perfect end to a rainy West Coast day.

A perfect getaway !!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay could not have been better. The property is even nicer than it looks in the listing.

The only downside was leaving!

The decor and ambiance were lovely. The cottage was spotless and equipped with everything we could have needed.

The owner's thoughtful attention to detail was very evident. Umbrellas in a stand at the door, flashlights hanging on the back of bedroom doors, lanterns everywhere, an amazingly well appointed kitchen, comfortable seating inside and on all of the three (!) decks.

The beds were very comfortable, with lovely fresh linens.

In particular, I appreciated Jonathan's consideration of my chemical sensitivities. Strong scents from cleaning products and laundry detergents make me feel unwell. Jonathan was wonderfully considerate and accomodating, which made for an absolutely wonderful stay for me.

The customer service we received could not have been any better.

I would absolutely recommend this property.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing and truly a perfect place for a getaway. My Mom, young son (toddler) and I enjoyed a fun, peaceful and relaxing vacation here. The house is equipped with everything you could possibly need, the hot tub is perfect for relaxing and unwinding and the property is set in a beautiful and peaceful location. On top of all of that, the process of booking this place was seemless and easy. I hope to stay here again one day and I will definitely recommend this place to my family and friends. Thank you again for a wonderful vacation rental experience.

Beautiful Property on the Shine Coast (tuwanek)

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying here for the Family Day long weekend. We had an absolutely amazing time. it was my wife, 2 small kids (3 and 6) and myself, and we spent the weekend exploring, hiking, playing at the beach, and relaxing in the hot tub. If you are interested in staying on the sunshine coast, then you need to see this place. Absolutely amazing. 10/10 we will be back :)

Great find!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time. Place is a fantastic getaway to relax, see some beautiful views, and lots of activities. We went crab hunting on the beach, canoeing, and hiking all within 5-10 minutes of the cottage. Jon, the owner, was super impressive with his communication and recommendations. I would recommend this space to anyone. Thanks for a lovely vacation.
