Peace, Luxury And Charm Right On The Cove

Family-friendly Sechelt cottage in Tuwanek with hot tub
To all our wonderful guests,

The Heron migration has resumed. Here are a few updates on what we have been doing regarding COVID-19. Firstly, we wish you all good health, both mentally and physically. This is a very strange time for us all, and we want to encourage everyone to practice the social distancing recommended by our health experts. As a result, Herons is renting but under some stricter rules. We will only rent to people who are in one cohort (i.e. one family or similar). We will follow the guidelines for Covid safety measures set out by the health authority. We cannot allow any social gatherings and only guests who are registered can be on the property. We will require the names of all guests prior to your arrival. If you or anyone in your party becomes ill, please let us know so that we can take steps to keep our staff, ourselves and future guests safe. This also involves time between bookings and a more involved cleaning regime. We ask that you are very mindful of the check in and checkout times and understanding that we can't be flexible with these. If you or anyone in your party becomes ill prior to your arrival, please stay home. We will either fully refund you or find other dates for your stay. We are committed to keeping Herons safe for our guests and community. Thank you for helping us all be well.

Take good care of each other,

Sandy and the Herons Team

Herons Return is a traditional timber frame cottage, with two queen bedrooms, and one with the option of 2 twin beds or a bunkbed for children. Perfect for couples, or multigenerational families. A fully equipped gourmet kitchen, large living room with 180 degree views of the mountains, forest and cove, a large covered deck and a sundeck with a four person hot tub overlooking the cove are exclusively yours during your stay. Please note that the posted rates are for one couple. Additional guests/bedrooms are extra. We can take a maximum of 6 people (including children).

Sechelt inlet is a calm inland sea with starfish, seals, crabs and shellfish right in the cove. Our timber frame home is on the ocean front in the peaceful community of Tuwanek on the Sunshine Coast of BC. Nestled on the shores of Lamb Bay at the foot of Mount Richardson it offers a retreat from the world; a great place for a romantic escape, or to rejuvenate with family or friends.

There are four bedrooms, each with a unique configuration. You can choose the ones that best suit your needs (up to six people). The master bedroom looks out to the cove, beach and across the inlet. It has a queen size bed, skylights to watch the stars, and a private deck for two. The other queen room has views of the cove, beach and mountain. The third room, with two twin beds, looks up to the mountain on one side and out to the forest on the other. The optional fourth bedroom is a children's room with a bunk bed and easy stairs to the top bunk. It looks into the forest through windows and a skylight.

All of the rooms come with high quality linens, puffy duvets, and a choice of pillows.

There are two bathrooms. The main floor bathroom includes a shower. Upstairs is a spa bath with shower and soaker tub for two. The WC upstairs is separate from the 'spa bath' so as not to disturb long soaks in the tub.

On the main floor the gourmet kitchen is custom built of alder wood by a local craftsman. It is fully equipped to cook your catch from the cove or craft a romantic meal from produce gathered at the local farmers markets. There are roasting and baking pans, serving dishes and place setting for six. The kitchen island and eating bar let family and friends gather while the 'chefs of the day' do their thing. The dining table expands out to comfortably seat six but also folds down for a romantic dinner for two.

The open living area is surrounded by windows to capture light and views of the cove, beach and mountain. It is heated by a wood burning stove (wood is supplied) as well as an energy efficient heat pump. A media room with flat screen TV, Apple TV is also on the main floor. WiFi connection, Optik TV and Netflix are complimentary.

Outside are four decks. The covered deck is a great space for all seasons. The sitting area under the covered deck is like an outdoor living room, a cozy space to gather to watch wildlife in the cove, and take in amazing sunsets. In winter we love to cozy up with a blanket and mug of tea to watch weather come down the mountain, and cormorants and herons fishing in the cove. In summer is it a shaded place to marvel at the humming birds battling over the bird feeder and eagles soaring overhead. In fall we can see into the clear water to watch seals and schools of salmon visit the cove. Barbecueing is comfortable in all seasons under the sheltered deck (Propane supplied).

The outdoor dining table has seating for six and is well placed to take in the sunsets. The herb pots grow year round. Please help yourself to fresh herbs for your meals.

Down a few stone steps is a sun deck with a warm outdoor shower and a hot tub looking out to the islets. Bath robes and extra large hot tub towels are supplied.

From this deck private stairs lead down to the beach. Beach chairs and umbrella are available. Kayak rentals are right next door at Pedals and Paddles. There is also car access to the beach just down the main road.

In the front is a sitting area for two placed to capture the morning light on the mountain and cove.

Upstairs off the master bedroom is a romantic balcony built for two.

The cottage is a traditional timber frame with fir posts and knee braces, 14 ft ceilings upstairs and fir flooring. The posts and braces are entirely structural. The stairs are made from one tree. Iron work on the stairs was designed by a local artist and welder.

Soak up majestic ocean views and sunsets serenaded by frogs in Lamb Creek. Watch salmon and seals in the cove and eagles and herons overhead. Walk down your private stairs to one of the best swimming and kayaking beaches on the coast. Pamper yourself with a soak in the hot tub nestled in the hillside overlooking the inlet and its islands. In the evening gaze at the stars, mesmerized by the sound of the waves tickling the shore.

Due to the extreme sensitivity of the cove, guests will not be allowed to moor their boats in the cove or on the beach. Anchoring on the sandy bottom is absolutely prohibited due to the ecological sensitivity of this area. Please make arrangements with local marinas for mooring. Kayaks can be store on the lower deck when not in use.

Guest accommodation at this cottage offers fireplaces and DVD players. Rooms open to balconies. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils.

Bathrooms include a shower and hairdryers. Additionally, rooms include coffee/tea makers and an iron/ironing board.

Recreational amenities at the cottage include a spa tub.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect vacation spot
My family (all adults) and I stayed for a week. The house is well set up for creating beautiful shared meals, loads of space to have some quiet time, and the hot tub was perfectly positioned for some evening shade while still enjoying the view. I would recommend this place for a relaxing getaway.

Beautiful Stay in a Wonderful Location
This is not our first time staying at this property, and it won't be our last. Heron's Return is the perfect location for a relaxing vacation; close to kayak rentals, exceptional hikes (Hidden Grove), and surrounding nature. With the home-like feeling at Heron's Return, our family was able to connect and interact while simultaneously feeling at peace. We would absolutely recommend this VRBO.
