Painted Boat Resort

Reviewed 19 February 2013

I found Painted boat online and based on the many positive reviews booked for a surprise bday weekend away for my boyfriend. The team was really helpful in getting some extras ready for him on our arrival & even had a personal bday card. The Villa was incredible! Every amenity you could ask for including washer/dryer, private bbq and a bath tub to die for, although the tv in the cabinet is quite small and awkward to watch depending on where you are sitting....Our bedroom also had a tv so we curled up in there to watch late at night. We loved waking up and having coffee on the deck watching the birds on the water and not another person in site, which might not always be the case but for us this was perfect. The local area is very small but you will find everything you need_ keep in mind the kitchen is stocked but if you are staying in and cooking you will need the basics ( spices, sauces etc ) We stayed at a time when the restaurant was closed for the season so we did stay in and cook/bbq but would have liked more room service options
If you are going out this way you should really take the time to explore the trails. We walked the Skookumchuck Narrows & highly recommend it: the end @ the narrows is awesome to see and was quite easy with a well maintained trail
This is a must stay, private getaway perfect for romance, adventure or a week of relaxing near the water

My Husband and I recently stayed at the Painted Boat Resort from February.9-11th and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location and resort is absolutely stunning and a VERY relaxing place to stay. We were also AMAZED with the customer service we experienced during our visit.
The first night we stayed we were in a ground floor unit and it seemed that the people in the unit above us (possible owners) were doing some sort of renovations late in to the evening. In fact, even when we went to bed we could still hear them clanging and crashing about. As a result, the next morning we went to the office and explained to them our experience. The woman who was assisting us immediately apologed profusely and instantly upgraded us to an upper level lofted unit for no additional charges and gave us a discount on the night previously. We were VERY impressed.
The second evening was absoultely perfect. The upgraded room was quiet, had an exceptional view and we thoroughly enjoyed the amenities it provided us. We also made a point of using the hottub on site and enjoyed relaxing and winding down in the evening while looking over the harbour.
We most defininitely will stay here again and thoroughly enjoyed the Sunshine Coast and The Painted Boat Resort and Spa!

Thank you :)

Tiffany & Jamie Francis

Room Tip: Request an upper floor unit so no one is making noise above you!

We've spent 3 wonderful days in that wonderful property. The staff is very nice and very accomodating. Upon arrival, we noticed that the heating system in our villa was not functioning to its fullest so we told Lori, the assistant manager and she gave us another room although it was 7pm and she was about to finish her shift. My husband was not feeling super well and she called the next day to inquire about his health! Pretty amazing!
Overall the accomodations are beautiful and very clean, the fitness room is great although the TVs were not working. As a customer, you feel valued and appreciated.
We would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for peaceful and quiet surroundings as well as great customer service.

Room Tip: I believe that all units have great views.

It's a shame to write this as the location of this place is superb. However, there were a few negative points that were observed during our stay. The walls are paper thin and the management weren't as helpful as you would expect from such a resort. Also the small tv is positioned inside a cupboard and very awkward to watch from the sofa. Seems a strange design decision to me but nothing that moving the sofa couldn't solve. When realising we had only been provided with 2 bath robes and there were 3 of us staying there, we politely phoned reception to ask for an extra one. We were abruptly told that it is policy to only provide 2 robes per room which seems totally mad to me as the villa could sleep up to 6 people at full capacity. After persistance they agreed to bring us one but I was made to feel rather awkward for asking. Very strange! Another issue was the cleanliness of the hot tub. It was a bit dirty with hair floating in it. I would have thought during the quieter winter months, cleaning of the hot tub would be an easy task to maintain. All in all, an ok stay but for the price we paid, I know there are a lot better accommodations availble on the Sunshine Coast.

Thank you for visiting us at Painted Boat Resort, and providing us with valuable feedback. In any property there might be sound exchange between units, and we do our best to minimize this effect. All of our walls – interior and exterior are insulated, and in fact concrete between floors. As to the Hot tub, it is tested, monitored, and cleaned throughout the day. I apologize your request was not granted promptly, and please email me directly if you would like to visit the Sunshine Coast again, pbmanager@crmr.com

After having left a not so favourable review and a response from a nameless 'sales manager' encouraging me to contact directly, I am now even more disappointed after doing so. Contact was just a smoke screen full of what they changed after our experience and made no attempt whatsoever to make me happy. My offer was to split the cost of our stay as our first night was as promised and our second night was a total disaster. My offer has gone without response which validates entirely my belief that they are only interested in bilking a customer once without desire to have a repeat customer.
Again, nice spot that the cleaning staff does a great job, but the paper thin walls and greedy management makes Painted Boat just another rubber dinghy.

I have not stayed overnight at this resort because we are always in Pender Harbour on our yacht, but we have frequented this Resort in the Bistro as well as the Spa. Both are fantastic and we stop every summer to spend some time here. They have dock space for transient moorage and the staff are very accommodating. The Spa will serve lunch by the outdoor pools in between treatments or before or after. Great view from the restaurant deck, and fabulous chef who creates mouthwatering masterpieces. We will always return for an outstanding meal.

Room Tip: Waterfront is best

Stayed at this resort for a friend's wedding labour day weekend 2012. The resort is stunning...you won't want to leave once you get there. The perfect setting for a party. The condos are huge/modern and well equipped.(including BBQ) A great get-away if you're looking to escape the city and just chill on the resort by the water. There's actually quite a bit to do, from hiking, running (great trails for cross-country running or biking) paddle boarding, kayaking or even relax and enjoy the spa, pool and gym . Try out the restaurant if you can....the food is fantastic! Town a few minutes away with grocery store and great coffee place for breakfast. Staff super friendly & accommodating. After a long day of travelling from the east coast via plane, automobile, & ferry....Well worth the visit to Painted Boat Resort :)
