The Haidaway cabin at Gold Coast Retreat exceeded our expectations and the website photos do it little justice. Arriving after a long drive, we entered the front door with a friendly note left for us, stepped inside and immediately relaxed as we were greeted with soft jazz, locally made chocolates and fresh beautiful bouquets. Cabin is extremely clean, has everything... More

more then i expected...the Haidaway Cabin was the perfect place to stay. Attention to details from coffee beans & grinder, great appliances, washer & dryer to wonderful bedding and the soothing outdoor 6ft claw tub with bubbles. The moment we walked in it just felt welcoming as the owners had music playing and pkg of Chocolates and meticulously clean. They... More

This was our second trip to Gold Coast Retreat and we had an amazing trip. This time we added a couple of extra nights so we could stay for a full week. Both times we've stayed in the Haidaway. The cabin has lots of space, the kitchen is perfect and we had a few home cooked seafood dinners... and the... More

We vacation annually in Tofino, but our usual spot was booked this year. Fortunately we were able to find an alternate spot at the Gold Coast in their "shipwreck" cabin. The place was great, and had everything we could need. It was private, cozy and comfortable. All the furnishings realy made us feel at home. There was plenty of kitchen... More

We booked four nights at the Hacienda at the end of September. The owners have thought of everything - even the big pot to prepare the fresh crab! The cottage is incredibly comfortable, sparkling clean and fully outfitted. We took advantage of the great tub on the deck and the location is perfect. Its a quick three minute walk to... More

We stayed 4 nights at the Hacienda. The house was very private and cozy. The bed was very comfortable. The deck was awesome to relax on and of course the access to the beach was superb. We walked in the mornings and always as the sun was setting. This is a very peaceful site. We also cooked a great deal... More

My family and I stayed in the Haidaway cottage and enjoyed every aspect of it. It is a small,cozy, clean cabin that's name speaks for itself - complete privacy. Beach access to Chesterman Beach is literally right out of the driveway. Price is right for what you pay for. We're definitely returning to this retreat. Thanks Sulo and Louise. ;)

OMG, this place is amazing. It is a must, if you are planning a trip to Tofino. We were super secluded and the outdoor tub/shower is just spot on. Sulo and Louise were the perfect hosts and so much detail goes into your stay. Chocolates, bathrobes, notes, Coffee machine and coffee, fresh flowers, wifi, boogie boards for the beach, everything...

My wife and I recently spent our honeymoon in the Shipwreck cabin and it was the perfect place for us. The cabin was just the right size for the two of us, it was spotless, and the bed was extremely comfortable. It was apparent that a lot of thought and consideration went into choosing everything from the decor to the... More
