Firstly Charlie is a wonderful host, collecting us from the airport and giving us a guided tour of the village plus top tips on where to eat and what to do based on our preferred activities. To top that we were upgraded to the large suite with the best views and private hot tub. Second the breakfast is fabulous, warm... More

We had a 2 week vacation planned and the final destination was Tofino. We ended up booking 2 nights at Meares Retreat to treat ourselves after a few days of camping out on the road and what a nice surprise this was. Make sure you write the directions down before you start you drive over from Nanaimo because there is... More

With my little family we stayed 2 nights in this B&B and it was just perfect. Charlie, the owner, is attentive, discreet and allows you to share his beautiful home with a breathtaking view. Breakfast is all just wonderful. We just regret one thing, not being able to stay longer ... paradise!

I can't honestly review this property because we never got the chance to stay there. After several emails and a phone call, I thought our reservation was confirmed. After a long day of travel we were looking forward to staying at Meares. Imagine our surprise upon our arrival where we learned there was no record of our booking whatsoever, except... More

Went here in July and had an amazing time. Charlie is the perfect host, really friendly and helpful with absolutely everything; he gave us some great tips on what to do in the area. The breakfast left on our porch every morning was delicious!! We stayed in the larger room, and the kitchen was stocked with everything we could need... More

We couldn't be more impressed by our stay at Meares Retreat, everything was perfect. We stayed in the smaller room, but it was far from small. Both the bedroom and the living room area had large double doors opening up to a private balcony with stunning views of the ocean. In the evening we enjoyed relaxing in the private hot... More

We had a lovely stay at Meares Retreat! The pristine waters surrounding the beautiful hamlet of Tofino restored these moisture-starved Texans! Everything is within walking distance-- the town, cafes, galleries, and beach for long strolls! Meares Retreat is located atop a rocky cliff, surrounded by lush trees and greenery and the views are second to none! Our kind and friendly... More

We went there on our honeymoon and stayed 5 nights and it was not enough time to enjoy this little piece of heaven, we would have loved to stay longer! The rooms are very comfortable, cosy and clean. A breakfast tray was waiting for us in front of our door every morning, so we could enjoy breakfast and the fantastic... More
