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

We stayed a couple of nights in September, in the Shipwreck cabin. It was so delightful. Very private, exceptionally clean and pleasant with tons of character. Everything was in the cabin that you would need for cooking and staying in. It had it's own small yard space and the outdoor sitting area/deck area was fun with an outdoor bathtub.

My husband I and stayed in the Shipwreck cabin for our honeymoon. It was also my first trip to the ocean. It was the perfect homebase for all of our adventuring in the area and incredibly cozy and warm when we stayed indoors. It came stocked with everything from premium shampoo/conditioner to spices, dishes and so many other little details... More

ONE WORD - Magical. LOTS OF WORDS - My husband and I were looking forward to a getaway that allowed us to simply spend time together and we found it. Sulo and Louise were very accommodating yet not intrusive and we had no concerns about feeling free to do our own thing. The outdoor tub was a real treat -... More

The Shipwreck exceeded our expectations. It was bright and cozy with all the comforts of home. The outdoor tub was truly special and memorable. We were steps to beautiful Chesterman beach and a short drive into the town of Tofino. But the best part about this place, for us, was the total privacy. Especially for those coming from a city,...
