I had a wonderful relaxing break from a hectic life. A serene setting, very comfortable bed, clean rooms and fabulous waterfront view. What more could you want if retreat is what you seek. The short ferry ride from Vancouver area was the beginning of the experience, with easy access at both ends. Proprietor, Elaine, provided a wealth of information about...

We can't recommend the Nikko cottage highly enough. Our host, Elaine, went way above and beyond to make our stay a memorable one. From the spotless cottage with all amenities to the luxurious bath robes and slippers to the private hot tub and lovely view. We will definitely be back again. Sechelt is a good spot for restaurants and walks...

My husband and I stayed at Takahashi Gardens this February, and we loved the serenity of the gardens as well as the beauty of the Sunshine Coast.
