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

Stayed 4 nights, great location closer to Tofino, but well within an easy ride to Ucluelet, as well as the Pacific Rim Park. The suite was spacious and clean and the amenities (washer & dryer, hot tub just outside the front door, the BBQ grill, etc.) were a nice touch. That said, a full size stove, instead of the two...

We stayed here after seeing positive reviews and feedback from friends. The location is great-across from North Chesterman. The suite is spacious and had everything we needed.The poor for cleanliness is not due to actual housekeeping, as the suite was tidy and clean, but due to an odor of mould/mildew. Nobody else has mentioned this on reviews and the owner... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay at the main suite. Everything was clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. There are even comfy throws to use while watching TV. We didn't use the hot tub.

5 of us stayed here around New Years, 2011 and it was great! We rented the garden suite and the loft which gave us lots of room. The kitchens were well equipped for all the cooking we did, the beach is a couple minutes walk away, the hot tub is fantastic, We didn't see the owners the whole 48 hours... More

We've stayed several times at the Sea Star in the past decade. Each time we've enjoyed our stay and found the accommodation completely met our needs. This trip we stayed in the Loft Suite. There were 3 of us and though the suite can accommodate more, we were very comfortable. The beds were comfortable and had nice comfy duvets on... More
