I don’t usually do this kind of review things…(cause I’m not a native speaker) the cottage was absolutely awesome. Nice,cozy and clean.You may find everything you need… Furthermore, Steve & Julie are really kind and friendly. My friends and I had such a wonderful stay!! If I have a chance…I’ll 100% come back again! Thank you so much! Sammi

We came to Ucluelet to elope and rented this cottage for a week. The wedding was beautiful, the cottage just as much. It was secluded with a beautiful little bay all to yourself. We saw two baby bears, tons of birds, a deer and other wild life right off the porch. It was so amazing seeing the tide come in... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in the 3 rd week of April 2013. The cabin had an almost panoramic view of the tidal river and was tucked away in trees. Just perfect! We were thrilled to hear wolves in the area as the moon came up. The position is perfect to explore the walking trails which are across the... More

Never usually bother writing reviews, but had to for this place because we thought it was fantastic. Has to be the best value accommodation in the area, really secluded, special location on the inlet. Earlier reviewers thinking it was by the ocean just hadn't done their homework. The tidal waters are partly what makes it special - wildlife is attracted... More

Steve and Julie are both wonderful and considerate hosts; e.g. gave us a Parks pass and boiled crab for us, etc. Delicious cedar cabin smell at the Shore Cabin, nice layout, amenities as well as decor. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for just what they are sharing; a rented cabin with friends, both central and secluded. Thanks you... More

I guess part of it was our expectations - when we saw 'waterfront' in the ad, we envisioned a cabin by the beach with a view of the ocean. What we got was a little cabin looking out over a small bay that was a mudflat for about half the day. The cabin itself was quaint, but showing signs of... More

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on our accommodation. So sorry that this did not live up to your expectations. We would have liked to be able to correct the situation for you during your stay. If we had been informed that the bedding was not up to our usual standards we would have been able to... More

I must say we will definitely return to this little gem on the ocean. The cabin is amazing as were the hosts. Steve was just a total wealth of information and a Hell of a nice guy. The interior is rustic an has totally amazing eclectic collection of artifacts and memorabilia that kept us amused all weekend. A previous reference... More

I love this place! You are on an inlet on the ocean, we say deer swimming across the bay and eagles taking fish out of the bay. We also saw a sea otter and a stray seal that visited the bay. It was picture perfect! The setting is very peaceful and quite. The cabin is truly unique! The décor is... More

Our cabin for two at Bird's Bay was just what we needed for a three night stay, near the walking trails along the Pacific Rim in Ucluelet. The little cabin was clean and attractive, and the owner had placed flowers and anniversary greetings in the room upon our arrival. The only suggestion I might make is placing some shampoo, etc...

If you want a stress-free, pleasant holiday, I have to recommend you stay away from the Birds Bay Retreat. The owner seems to be rather prone to irratic bursts of rage. Long story short, my friends and I had booked 4 nights there over the Labour Day long weekend, and when we showed up the owner lost her temper and... More
