We stayed here for 3 nights but unfortunately couldn't stay longer as it was booked out. The view from the communal area was awesome. We had a room off the kitchen which had its own entry. Good location to the town and beaches. Would stay again.

This Internet rental was a lesson for me because I relied on a limited description to select the room and while it was a «room without a view», it ended up being an isolated basement room with a «hint» of humid smell and limited external light. I rolled with my choice and made the best of it, but next time,... More

This was a real gem in our estimation. The room was nothing fancy. It was clean and functional. The outstanding thing here is the location and grounds of the property. It is quiet located away from the high activity in Tofino. It is right beside the Tofino Harbour (Armitage Point) pier. Just out the door and down a short street... More

WOW! This was one of the nicest places we have EVER stayed in while traveling - PERIOD. It looks deceiving when you drive into an unmarked gravel driveway. BUT wait until you see the view from the deck as you register at the Office. The rooms for sleeping are quaint, and bathrooms spotless. It's the REST of the facilities you... More

We stayed at the end of August - yes you could call the place quaint, bohemian, different .... whatever but for the money it was not a great experience! The rooms left much to be desired and in our party we had 2 rooms so this is not just based on one night in one room. On the surface they... More

View of the ocean was really nice. Was interesting to watch the boats go by. The room was small and very clean. Twin beds you don't see every day. No fridge no phone no microwave....but not really needed. The little village is close by and everything is there that you would need.

We went here because they were pet friendly and located on the bay. Wow, what a nice view: boats on docks, then Meares Island and then in the far background tall mountains. What is really special is the communal kitchen and eating area. It is really well appointed and a nice opportunity to save money cooking for yourself and meeting... More
