“Thoughtful and everything we could want”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

Had a great week in the Summerhill "Kitchen Garden" suite in early July. The owners (Melody and Harold) are superb hosts - the suite was in great shape on arrival, the buttermilk pancake mix was a winner, and their help and advice throughout the stay was really appreciated - we only had to ask. Summerhill is located in a quiet area only a few minutes walk from MacKenzie Beach. We found it very convenient - a few minutes drive gets you into the centre of Tofino (about 3Km) while the southern end of Chesterman beach is only three or four minutes away - it had wonderful sunsets. Summerhill was a great place to stay and I only wish we'd had more time to spend there. We will be back.

We stayed at the Summerhill Guest House late September 2011 and it was excellent. Owners Harold and Melody are very friendly and Harold gave us a lot of good suggestions for exploring Tofino and its surroundings.
The guesthouse itself is very spacious, clean and homey.
They left us some eggs, milk, pancake mix etc in the fridge to get started which we found to be really thoughtful.
Perfect location also, easy driving everywhere.
Don't think twice about this one, go ahead and make a reservation!

Had a great stay here in mid September 2011. Upon arrival we were greeted by Harold who gave us some useful tips for exploring the area and he was very welcoming and friendly. The lodging itself was very well thought through having everything from homemade pancake mix to wireless internet to some fun DVDs for the kids (which we ended up watching ourselves!).

While not in the heart of Tofino, it is only a 5 minute drive away but chances are that if you are going to Tofino you will have a car so that was no problem at all. Summerhill Guest House is very close to Wildfire Grill and the taco van which has become a bit of an institution with the locals and we found ourselves eating here rather than going "downtown".

It has been a truly beautiful stay in Summerhill Guest House. We enjoyed the family character of the Guest House. It made us feel a little less touristy. Melody and Harold were very kind and helpful. We had a great time and definitely recommend their Guest House to travellers who look for a place they feel immediately comfortable in, but are not keen on paying the premium of a 5 star resort.

Our suite was modern clean and very spacious, meticulously clean. Loved staying here. We had access to the garden wheich again was lovely. Owner (Harold) was very welcoming and gave good advice on what to see and do. A nice touch to leave some eggs/cereal/milk etc. for breakfast. The location is good, on a quite cul-de-sac. Easy drive to the beaches and National park. Centre of town though is a good 20-25 minute walk though so if in a hurry you need to also drive.

Harold and I really appreciate the well-written review you gave us last September. So far 19 people have found it helpful, and several of our 2012 guests are here because of your efforts-- wow! Thanks again, and we wish many good things to come your way in return.

The Sadlers have two lovely suites, both with well stocked kitchens. We especially liked the enclosed porches (in case it rains) and the outdoor surfer's shower. There is a fire pit and a badminton net to keep you busy. The guest house is private and quiet. It is very close to town and Chesterman beach - a great location and a lovely family!

Thank you so much for taking the time to sign up with TripAdvisor and submit such a positive review about us! We really appreciate your help in spreading the word about our guest suites, as everyone knows that word-of-mouth recommendations are worth much more than paid ads only. It means a lot to us and our family!

Great location, quiet and very beautiful. Our room was big and comfortable. The owners, Melody and Harold, had left some milk and eggs as well as some tea and coffee as kind of a welcoming gift to tie us over until we could shop for supplies. Harold welcomed us with great info about what to do and where to in and around Tofino. Both Harold and Melody were really nice and would check in on us to make sure we were taken care off. Other than that, they really offered us a lot of privacy. This is a terrific place to stay, we certainly will be back.
