Here's what our customers had to say about Madeira Park Retreat Painted Boat Resort...

  Our BC ferries trip to Painted Boat was wonderful. Absolutely no complaints with service and we look forward to booking another vacation with you in the future  

Catrina R.

  We really enjoyed our mini vacation with BC Ferries. The accommodations were very comfortable and, since we had never been to the Sunshine Coast before, we really enjoyed exploring new places such as Half Moon Bay, Smuggler Trail and Skookumchuk Narrows.   

Carol M.

  The accomodations at the Painted Boat Resort were quite good and very comfortable. The location was convenient, we only had to walk to get to the park and IGA. The staff was quite helpful and friendly.
