A family of 5 stayed for surf at the Hacienda with walking distance to Chesterman Beach, the house was spacious and had all we needed; fully equipped kitchen, Bbq, a beautiful little garden with an outdoor shower an bathtub (so convenient after a surf in sandy wetsuit) and such friendly neighbours. We could definately recommend this place!

The Shipwreck cabin has been detailed to accommodate all of your needs for a two day visit or longer. I love the cabins' small size and how well appointed it is, with no feeling of clutter. The kitchen has been well thought out and as a chef I loved working in it. The natural wood work, privacy and only a... More

The shipwreck cottage was the most charming, cozy little home that gave us such joy to stay in. The place is exceptionally well equipped for all your basic needs, from the rustic bathroom to the sea-inspired kitchen, to the beautiful furniture. The place is a short walk to Chesterman beach, making it really easy to spend lots of time by... More

Spent 6 nights at the Gold Coast Retreat enjoying the Shipwreck Cabin. What a lovely, well-equipped, private escape ... one visit will certainly not be enough! Chesterman Beach is literally a mere 3 minute walk, ocean sounds at night are soothing, Tofino is a short bike ride away and we just can't say enough about our vacation. Thanks to Sulo... More

We stayed in the Haidaway cabin. It can sleep 4. Full kitchen facilities, laundry and the most gorgeous private yard full of honeysuckle, hostas and a number of other beautiful plants and trees. There is an outdoor tub big enough for two and an outdoor shower. We sat on the large deck and watched hummingbirds, eagles, and osprey fly by.... More

Some really nice touches, including outdoor claw foot tub and the most amazing outdoor rainforest shower on the planet.....peppermint shampoo and conditioner to top it off! Well stocked kitchen with spices, good barbecue, nice... More

I arrived to jazz and chocolate and immediately felt my whole body relaxing. What an incredible, peaceful place. I wish I could have spent more time, and hope to come back soon! Sulo and Louise - you were fabulous hosts! The only thing I wished for were screens on more of the doors and windows so that I could sleep... More

We loved everything about our stay at The Shipwreck. When we arrived, there was music playing, chocolates waiting for us on the table along with a personalized note. The location is great. It is walking distance from the beach and close enough to town to go roam around. Next time around we will make sure we bring our bikes so... More

Myself and my girlfriend decided upon a trip to Vancouver Island as a finale to our 2 year working holiday visa in Canada. During that time, work has taken prominence and we were desperately seeking solitude to leave on a high. We stayed in 'The Shipwreck" cottage and it was an incredible experience from start to finish. So many carefully... More
