A gracious hostess, a beautiful room, an enchanting view of Little Beach - just perfect. I stayed in the Sunrise Room and spent hours sitting on the balcony watching the birds cavort through the rainforest and the waves below lap against the shore. Nelly went out of her way to accommodate my weird schedule. Breakfasts were delicious, and the coffee... More

Honestly, I don't know where to start. I was looking for a place that had two rooms on very, very short notice and luckily found Hertel's. Having been to Ucluelet before I knew how nice it is but I really was blown away by the stunning natural setting of this place. The rooms are beautifully furnished with amazing handcrafted furniture... More

Most comfortable bed we've ever slept in. Everything was handcrafted out of wood and sitting on the deck with the delicious coffee was so relaxing. Truly amazing and unique place to stay!! They recommended a restaurant in town that was unbeatable!!

We stayed here for two rainy days in June: the place was relaxed, clean, with a huge balcony and a pretty private beach. It's only a few minutes by car from central Ucluelet. Some of the slightly negative earlier comments I think misunderstand what kind of B&B this is. There are some B&Bs where there is a hearty host who... More

I truly cannot recommend Hertel's Beach House more, such a sanctuary set in the midst of the tall trees in a sleepy bay of crystal clear water. Ucluelet is one of those edge of the world places where you feel in a sort of natural zen state. Despite being far away from the metropolitan buzz you feel on the doorstep... More

Hertel's Beach House is a beautiful home on a small cove. The house is immaculate and Nellie is friendly and full of advice about restaurants and things to do. She even made me a small cake to celebrate my birthday! The only downside is that there's no good place to hang out on a dreary day. There's a large, beautiful... More

Dear Incommunicado Thank you for posting a review of your recent stay at our B&B. I'm glad you enjoyed the complimentary upgrade to our Sunshine room, and Nelly's cake. We also appreciate your comments regarding the lack of a common room. The living room is simply too central to remain unheard by the other rooms directly below and your room... More

We were not blown away by this b&b like the previous guests who reviewed it. Maybe we are spoiled by our previous experiences, but considering the price we paid, we expected a bit more. Especially the portions at breakfast were too small. It tasted good, but it was certainly not enough to take us till lunchtime. The room was nice,... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights during a visit to Ucluelet and Tofino. We highly recommend the Sunshine Suite which is a large gorgeous room with a spacious bathroom attached. The entire house is like a work of art, with furniture made by the owner (who also built the house). Nelly is a warm and friendly person... More

Hertel's Beach House is a true gem in Ucluelet. The house is gorgeous, with hand-crafted wooden furniture and details. Our room looked out over Little Bay and it was so peaceful and quiet. Nelly and Jens welcomed us warmly and Nelly cooked up amazing hot breakfasts for us. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to all our... More

We spent nearly an entire week relaxing at Hertel's Beach House. Nelly and Jens were great hosts, and Nelly catered to my milk-free diet at her delicious breakfasts. I enjoyed the Hertel's meats, while my sweet girlfriend enjoyed the sweet breakfast days! The house is spectacular, with true craftsmanship around every corner. We got great advice on where to visit;... More
