About Alan

Born and raised in B.C. Have travelled extensively but this is the place I love the most!!!

Why Alan chose Sechelt

This is our well loved private vacation home that we have recently opened up to guests.

I hope you will enjoy it as much as we have. We plan to keep it for life!

What makes this cottage unique

There is a unique sense of peace and calmness I find from the moment I walk in the door.

As a true getaway/ holiday place, there is NO CABLE TV by choice. We do keep a selection of DVD's.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Alan was a lovely host. He was the most accommodating providing walking trails and attractions in the area. He had candles lit and music playing when we walked into the cabin.

The place is so beautiful and right on the water. We had such a lovely stay. We want to and plan on coming back. Alan is the best host. We give this a 10 out of 10. Thanks again Alan.

Well appointed, quiet home, with a wonderful host.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house for a quiet mid-winter get-away, and got exactly that. The house is in a quiet cove with a view of water, sail boats moored in the cove, and lots of birds. There is a short walk to a small beach and a dock down at the water edge.

Alan was amazingly attentive and prepared the house beautifully, with a welcome array of sparkling water (we don't drink), a toy for the dog, bathroom amenities and candles already lit. We got there at dusk so it was very warm and welcoming. The bed was particularly comfortable and with elegant bedding. The living room was comfortable with wood readily available for the fire.

The house had everything we needed, and we enjoyed exploring Gibsons and Sechelt. Can highly recommend this property and owner and hope to return in the summer, so we can enjoy the deck and water more.

Beautiful & peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six (grandparents, parents & kids) enjoyed a relaxing 4 days during the Christmas holidays at this wonderful cabin right on Sechelt Inlet.

Alan was an excellent host and made sure we had everything we needed on arrival and throughout our stay. The cabin is very well maintained and very clean.

Recommend highly and would return.

A slice of heaven

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Tuwanek. The house was beautiful and the owner Alan was very attentive and checked in several times during our stay. The house was clean and even had fresh cut flowers and 2 loaves of freshly baked bread...yummy! The dock was great for swimming and for stargazing at night! There is a kayak and paddleboard rental place right across the Bay which we used several times. We would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful, relaxing home!

  • 4 of 5

This was a great home for our family of 5 and our dog. Alan was excellent to deal with and very welcoming when we arrived. The house was spotless and had everything we needed. We couldn't have asked for a better location right on the water. The kids loved swimming and fishing off the dock every day. We are already planning our return visit to this great home in Sechelt!

We arrived and Alan was right there to greet us! Gave us a quick run down and it was very welcoming. The place is exactly what we had hoped for. Nice to have a full kitchen with everything that you would need. We were able to celebrate Easter dinner! The view is amazing. The deck was very enjoyable and has sun on it almost all day. We enjoyed the private dock, unfortunately it was a tad cold out to enjoy it fully. Summer would be amazing here. The housekeeper came around noon every day and was very through and even down to the little details. Free wifi was nice to have.

The cottage is located in a small hamlet away from any major development. Beyond this area there is nothing but mountains, oceans and trees. A great place to feel a part of nature and decompress from the city yet just 10-minute drive to grocery and shopping.
