The sea star retreat is a surfers paradise. My fiancé and I stayed in the studio suit and we had a spa bathtub which was so nice to have for after a cold surf in the ocean. There was also a kitchenette and bbq which made it really easy to cook our meals. Not only that, but there was a... More

We stayed in the upstairs apartment for two days in August 2014, and wish we had been able to stay longer. The accommodations were very comfortable, and the location is terrific. There is easy access to the beach, right across the street. The owners and managers of the property are friendly, and provided some good tips on where to eat... More

We stayed for a week in the main suite. It was very clean and comfortable, and met all our expectations. There even was daily maid service which came as a surprise. Beautiful Chesterman Beach was just across the road, and Tofino was about a five minute drive away. I would certainly recommend these suites for a vacation. B. K and... More

We stayed in the studio for 2 nights. It was very comfy, with a wooden interior(on the floors and the roof...). It's an open-spaced room with a well equiped kitchenette. There was also a big BBQ on a small patio that was exclusively ours. The room was quiet and very clean. The beach, accross the street, is easy to access.... More

Stayed 3 nights at the loft. The place is located a brief walk from a nice beach. We had a beautiful sunset there. It is a bit far from Tofino itself for dinning out but it has a well equiped kitchen with many condiments and it is possible to have a quiet meal. We bought live crab and spot shrimps... More

Our family of 4 stayed at the Sea Star a recent cabin acquisition next door to the bed and bed breakfast. AMAZING. The cabin has everything you need and more. Todd and Lynda are excellent hosts. You won't find a better location and you won't be disappointed. Todd and Lynda, Thank you so much for sharing your paradise with us.

We found this resort-like lodging on Tripadvisor and very happy with our choice. The family that runs the resort are retired and obviously spend their time providing wonderful accommodations in the 3 well appointed suites. Ours was a large ground floor suite with private garden and patio, complete with Jacuzzi tub, queen poster bed, kitchen, gas fireplace and LCD TV.The... More

Just happened on sea Star by accident! So glad we did. We stayed in the Studio and loved it. Extremely comfy and perfect for two. A bit different the way it is laid out but very thoughtfully done. Clean, private and very close to the beach and Tofino. Great hosts, although you never see them if you don't want to?... More

It was our first time in Tofino, and the Sea Star was a great place to call home base! Our suite was very comfy-cosy and Rod and Kelly let us enjoy the peace and serenity of our trip, yet were right there when we had questions. Rod is a fountain of knowledge of the area and sent us to some... More
