“Close to my heart”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

Spent this past weekend in unit #25 at Painted Boat with a group of friends for a reunion. The resort was perfect for us. The Pender Harbour area is some of the best paddling anywhere on the northwest Pacific coast and along with the bike trails in and around Sechelt makes for an amazing sporting get-away. The hot tub and infinity pool (albeit not heated in the winter months) were perfect to rest our tired muscles. If you still need more help, the Spa was too tough to resist for 3 of us guys and put an excclaimation mark on the weekend. Also, thank you to Ryan for saving us on our arrival night by answering your cell phone at 9:45pm!!!

Room Tip: Although the pool is not heated in the winter...jump in after the hot tub and it feels great!!!....A...

Do you ever wake up and think - I need to get away? I did.
I found the resort randomly thanks to Google.
The Painted Boat was offering a spa package - 'Nuture Your Soul', combining a 2 night stay with a spa visit.
Laurie made it so easy and very much fun! I called Sunday morning and was enjoying a massage that afternoon.
All of the front desk staff were helpful and attentive.
And if you ever get to the spa - Gina is *amazing*!

Was at a wedding on west coast...and stayed at Painted Boat. Very neat place, big rooms, well appointed. Spa looked amazing, but did not have time to use it!:(. Unfortunately restaurant closed for lunch..but heard good things.
Worth the visit.

Room Tip: 2 bedroom corner room#7.....view, space and big balcony.

We just got back from this lovely resort and would highly recommend it. We have been enjoying the restaurant for years, but have never booked accomodations. We rented the 2 bedroom with loft and treated our parents to a weekend of pampering. The kitchen: had everything we needed to make some lovely meals. Bedrooms: very relaxing, comfortable beds and plenty of closet space. Bathrooms: beautifully appointed with an abundance of towels. Loft: relatively private space with a great view and it's own balcony. Pull out couch was unmade, but there was certainly enough bedding to do so. Living space: very open and the high ceiling gave it a spacious feel. Comfortable furniture and an electric fireplace to lend some ambiance. Outside deck: large enough for everyone to have a seat while enjoying the view and the bbq. Also found a deck umbrella in the suite to use on the deck to help with the shade. There were, what appeared to be, great laundry facilities in the suite if one were so inclined. We didn't use the pool or fitness area, but they also looked welcoming and uncrowded. Spa looked amazing with gracious staff, but no time to enjoy on this trip. All in all, a lovely place to stay, beautifully clean and spacious. Will definitely stay again.

Lovely stay at their 2-bedroom plus loft overlooking their marina. Well appointed, good beds, very spacious and new, super clean, great water pressure, BBQ on the deck. Have a wonderful hot tub and infinity pool overlooking the water as well. Quality of the tap water wasn't great - suggest bringing bottled water. Otherwise great!

Room Tip: Don't stay in a room close to the hot tub or pool as it can get very noisy.

we stayed one night at the Painted-Boat House and treated us to a session in the spa. It is an absolutely fabulous blissful place with beautiful serene nature all around. The spacious (we were 3 adults and each stayed in our own bed. 2 bedrooms and one on the pull out sofa) apartments are equipped with everything you need and feel like home the moment you enter. This is the perfect get-away place for a short weekend away from home or traveling with your family and want to have the independence to cook your own meals. Staff was super friendly and helpful at all times.

Room Tip: If you stay a few nights, bring something for breakfast so you can enjoy the balcony with view onto...

My Mom and I visited the Spa at Painted Boat while staying in the area. We both enjoyed a 2 hour treatment. The services were excellent and the facilities were beautiful.
The only disappointing thing was that we had wondered up on it and dropped in to check it out and booked our appointments for the next day. We didn't realize until after our treatments were over that there was an outdoor hot/cold pool garden that we could have used before and after our treatments. So, we came on time for out appointments and did not bring our bathing suits. For the more than $500 we spent, it would have been nice to have used those facilities and extended our relaxing experience. So don't forget your swimsuit!
