“Don't miss this one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2009

My husband and I stayed here with a couple of friends. This place was fabulous. The rooms were nicely decorated and very comfortable. Wendy and Dom were great hosts. Breakfast overlooking the ocean was delicious. I can tell you they don't charge enough for what they give. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

This is a comfortable B&B in a residential area of Tofino. By walking three short blocks, you are in the middle of Tofino's downtown.

The home is more than 20 years old, but appears to be brand new. The rooms have contemporary furnishings and are very comfortable, with a nice sitting area and a fireplace. Parking is near the room entrance.

The breakfasts are delicious and elegantly presented. And, there is a terrific harbor view from the dining room.

Great location, excellent food, comfortable rooms, and wonderful hosts. On our next Tofino trip, we won't look any further than Wilp Gybuu.

Tips:
1. Follow the website directions as our GPS tried to send us down a dead end.
2. Great dinner places within walking distance
3. The Pacific Rim Park beaches are a short drive away.

We booked our stay at Wilp Gybuu last winter on the basis of TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. A few minutes walk to the harbour and restaurants and the closest beach, with a spectacular view of the water from the dining room.

Wendy's recommendations for dinner were bang on (do try Tough City Sushi ). The Salal Room was very well equipped and comfortable and the breakfast excellent.

Recommended.

My husband and I have stayed at Wilp Gybuu four times now over the past six years. It is one of the three best B & Bs in all of North America that we have stayed in. We will keep returning. Wendy is a marvelous hostess and cooks fabulous breakfasts. The rooms are warm and cozy and she has coffee available at 7:30 for early risers. She offers to help you while in Tofino to find the best restaurants, shops, and sites to visit. The breakfast room overlooks one of the bays and is so restful. We love to kayak and hike the area and love coming back to Wilp Gybuu in the evenings to read and relax. It's a great place that we highly recommend. Gino, the cat, is available for petting as well!

With my wife and two other family members we stayed here for one night, using two rooms (the Fir Suite) for $250.00 plus tax. The house can accomodate a maximum of six guests, and is in a quiet part of Tofino an easy 10 minutes walk from the harbour. We were courteously welcomed by the owner, Wendy,and offered socks to wear when in the house as shoes are not preferred either by Wendy nor by Gino, the cat. The rooms were very nice, with en suite bathrooms, and each had a decanter containing some sherry and two glasses! The guest lounge is very comfortable, and there is a view of the bay from the breakfast room. The breakfast was also very nice consisting of a fruit salad, orange juice, freshly baked individual quiche, scones, and coffee or tea as preferred. Breakfast was served by Wendy, who then joined us in the breakfast room for an informal chat. Tofino is a very pleasant fishing village and we had dinner in a restaurant overloking the harbour from where we watched launches ferrying the local first nation residents back and forth across the bay to their village, seals bobbing in the water, and a sea 'plane moored at the harbour.

We would recommend Tofino as a very pleasant and relaxing place in a beautiful setting, and the Wilp Gybuu guesthouse as a high quality accomodation option.

My husband and I booked a room at Wilp Gybuu for 2 nights on a weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Our room was just elegant with a romantic fireplace-which was nice to curl up to with a glass of Sherry provided by our most gracious hosts. The breakfasts served every morning was absolutely to die for, and very refreshing. Tofino itself is also such a beautiful place to explore, but if you go and want to have a really great time, I recommend you stay at Wilp Gybuu.
