Let's face it, you can't rely on the weather in BC at any time, so mid winter escapes need to include cozy, inviting accommodations, great food and a place to curl up and 'just be'. The tented suites at Rockwater are just that, and more. We arrived after dark and made our way through the mist & along the boardwalk to our ocean front tent. Waves crashing below, we opened the door to the tent to find the fireplace on, and immediately dropped our bags and took in the moment. The suites are carefully planned to include anything you might need, right down to the matches in the drawer that you need for the candles beside the oversize jacuzzi tub (yes, it really is big enough for both of you). Crisp sheets, soft duvet and a view that never ends. The food was
excellent, the staff completely in sync with each other as well as their guests. Thank you, Rockwater - we'll be back!

Room Tip: Tents or not at all!

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend away to celebrate our ten year anniversary. I was a little sceptical at first, thinking that the tent suite was an overpriced novelty and would not be worth the extra cost. I am happy to say I was wrong, very wrong. The tent suite was fantastic and I could feel the tension drain away as we walked along the boardwalk out to our suite. The view from the porch made me think we were all alone overlooking the water. The amenities in the room were top of the line, double soaker tub and crisp white luxurious bedding. We sat on the porch in our robes and watched the waves while enjoying a glass of wine. It was the perfect location for a weekend away.

Room Tip: Worth the extra cost to spring for a tent suite. Great food in the resturant, although the decor could have been better in the dining room. Also I highly reccomend the walk to the tidal rapids at skookumchuck. Nice walk and beautiful views.

My wife and I recently dined out at the Rocwater resort, taking full advantage of the winter special menu. WOW!!! being a local of the sunshine coast one knows how hard it is to get great food and great service, followed by great prices. The Rockwater definately offers all 3.
After experiencing the 3 course we felt it was the one place we both fully agreed on to share our New years. We had plans to go with another couple but unfortunately we were unable to go. Our friends went instead and this is what they said. " The romantic setting they had hoped for was just not there. The band was way too loud and the food came way too quick" Although the food was AWSOME, the 6 course was too much aswell. They said the service was more than 100%. They would gladly go back as with the view, the service and the quality of food this resort restaurant (as this was their first time there) was ranked their top 3. and they are in their late 50's and have travelled all over the world. So once again. Thanks Rockwater. As locals we love and appreciate all you do.

My husband surprised me with staying in a tent house here - I originally thought that we were staying in a regular room. The regular room is old and really nothing special. However, it has a view and a deck. The tent house is UNREAL. It is beautiful. I felt so relaxed staying there. It includes a huge tub and a good sized shower. It is also very warm with a gorgeous deck right on the water. I loved it!

Another lovely few days at Rockwater Secret Cove Resort.....we have been coming here
since it was called Lord Jim's....We have stayed on the lovely 'tent camping for adults'
but seem to still prefer the small cabins....Our favourite is cabin eleven as it is the
farthest out....with an unobstructed view of the ocean....Spent our second Christmas
there.....our little twinkle lights around the window....stockings hung....warm throws on
the chairs and bed.....and the rain and whitecap waves outside the window....the
perfect cozy setting for a couple at Christmas....Dinner in the lodge was festive
and delicious......no question.....our favourite spot on the Sunshine Coast....

Room Tip: Our favourite is cabin eleven as it is the farthest out with an unobstructed view of the ocean and a comfy king size bed.....
