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

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.
