Thoughtful Touches

From coffee in the morning served to your door to a thick sheepskin providing warmth throughout, we aim to make sure you’re always comfortable

At Cabana Desolation we understand that the little things are just as important as the big picture & strive to add thoughtful touches to every guest experience

An Immersive Experience

From Adam Vallance – owner Powell River Sea Kayak & Cabana Desolation:

“Upon completion of the first 3 cabanas in the summer of 2012, we staged one of the cabanas for a photo shoot and christened Cabana Desolation with an overnight trip.

After a restful sleep we woke the next morning to the sounds of birds and to the slapping and snorting of a nearby harbor seal. As one who is thoroughly addicted to good coffee in the morning, I hopped out of the log bed and quickly fired-up my single burner stove (the Cabana Café was yet to be completed).

Soon, my wife and I were propped up in bed with our mugs of coffee as we quietly contemplated how simply awesome this all was. We both agreed that guests should have that kind of experience – that kind of feeling.”
