Spent a long weekend here with our two children, aged 5 and 1. As long as you're aware that this is more of a basic cottage rental outfit rather than a full-on "resort", you'll have a great time. This is more of a place to sleep and eat, rather than hang out.
In terms of location, although the property has a nice view of Little Beach, it's not directly on the waterfront, and is in fact on the "wrong" side of Peninsula Road. Being at the very far end of Ucluelet, however, there isn't much traffic, and we did not find this to be a problem. On the positive side, it's 5 minutes from the Wild Pacific Trail, which makes for an easy, family-friendly sunset hike. The amazing beaches of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve are a 20 minute drive back up the highway.
The cottages are arranged in a duplex configuration, and most have a deck or patio that faces across the road to the water. Because the site faces west, afternoon sun can be strong in summer, but after it's gone, you're rewarded with gorgeous sunsets. Cabins are simple, consisting of a studio living space and kitchen with futon, a small bedroom or two, and a bathroom with shower. Given our previous experience with this sort of lodging, we were pleasantly surprised at how spotlessly clean everything was.
We brought a cooler of food, groceries, and bbq supplies with us, and made extensive use of the kitchen to prepare meals. Yes, you'll have to wash up after yourselves or face cleaning charges, but we didn't find this unusual for a cottage rental. Although not full service, garbage was taken out in a timely manner and we always had a good supply of fresh towels and linen.
Service was friendly and efficient, and although the resort was full due to the long weekend, we did not experience any problems with noise or other disturbances.
I'd definitely recommend this for families with young children - for the same price as a motel room in town, you get a nice private space, a kitchen to prepare kids' meals, and enough room to set up a pack n' play, cot, crib, playpen, or whatever.
