The birdlovers loft at Sauna House is a nice place to stay. The room has bathroom facilities right off the room with a nice sized shower (no tub). The room has a large window looking to the rear of the property which is a rainforest. We enjoyed watching the Steller jays at the bird feeder outside the window. Nikki brought... More

We stayed in the Bird Lover Loft and we loved it! Great sense of privacy, small room yet very functional and yummy breakfast! It really felt like a treat to have some warm, homemade muffins and fruit salad delivered to our door in the morning! Even if we are not typical bird lover, we really enjoyed feeding them and looking... More

We stayed 3 nights in "Birdlovers loft" in October. The atmosphere was so relaxing. A source of peace and tranquility. We could see the birds eating from our window. We felt so near the nature. Nikki, the owner, prepared delicious breakfasts every morning. I loved the warm muffins. I would definitely love to go back and I absolutely recommend it.... More

I stayed in the Sauna House cabin and it was a perfect place to relax and unwind. Rustic and very private, with your own secluded deck surrounded by greenery and all you need to prepare your own meals if you don't wish to go out. An excellent shower and a wood burning sauna for post-surfing warm up. Breakfast was delicious... More

We booked for a 3 night stay in the Bird Lovers loft in July. Location was great. Quiet, in a stand of forest and very close to Chesterman's beach. The loft was very nice. Roomy enough with all the basic kitchen amenities to prepare cold lunches, etc. Roomy and light and had a lovely forest view with frequent visits from... More

This is a lovely little cabin which has everything you need. It's just over the road from the beach which is beautiful to walk along. Nikki is very welcoming and makes the most delicious muffins for breakfast. Whilst it's not in the centre of Tofino it's just 2 minutes down the road so no trouble at all for accessing the... More

We stayed in the upstairs room...with our friends in the Sauna' room. If you like saunas: fine...but the room itself seemed a little dark and a bit small. Upstairs...in the Bird Lovers nook - it is lighter and a bit more spacious with almost all that you could want. Not a great breakfast muffin fan; but - if I was... More

If you want to get away from it all then this is the place for you. Peace and quiet are the order of the day, yet 2 mins and you are on the beautiful beach. The home made muffins and fruit for breakfast were delicious. We didn't take advantage of the sauna though.

First time at a B & B and was the greatest experiences ever! Nikki's place is way better than any hotel we have stayed at. The tranquility and quiet was the best part of the trip and our twice daily walks on the beach didn't hurt either! Recommending this place to everyone we know on the Island, everything we needed...
