This property is located just off of Chesterman Beach. You can walk to the beach in less than a minute. It is a short drive into town. You will need a car. Tofino is expensive, and this was a great find at a reasonable price. We stayed in the garden suite which is better in person than it looks in... More

We are currently on a month long trip with young kids around BC and couldn't miss out Tofino. Staying at Sea Star meant we were a minute from the beach to relax on and explore but also close to town. 'The Loft' was perfect for our small family - clean, well appointed and a nice spot to base ourselves from.... More

WE stayed in the Main Suite which does not seem to be featured on the website. There are 2 bedrooms with queen beds and a pull out sofa bed in the living room. One bathroom is ensuite and the second bathroom is off the hallway. A full kitchen is well equipped for cooking meals. WiFi is very good and there... More

We've almost stayed in every room, just the Studio left to try! This trip we thoroughly enjoyed the Garden Studio. Large, comfy room with a huge, comfy sofa, jetted tub, fireplace, nice outdoor sitting area right next to the hot tub. Everything spotlessly clean. Excellent value for money. Everything you need to enjoy your stay. And right across from the... More

The perfect place for us. Group of 4 fit nicely into the main suite without feeling cramped. The hot tub and surf storage for boards and wetsuits was a great bonus. A quick 2 min walk to Chesterman's beach made this the perfect surfers place to stay without having to load up boards on the car and fight for parking.

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
