Place is awesome, kid friendly and very accessible to beach and downtown Tofino. The place is so clean and very spacious The staff is great, very hospitable and I highly recommend this place. We will definitely go back to Tofino and stay at Sea star.

This lodge provided a very private get-a-way. Newly renovated and very clean, well stocked kitchen. The feature of the place is the hot tub outside, it was fabulous. There was impressive attention to detail in the bathroom, a beautiful tile double shower and nice sink. It was clean but the smell of Pinesol was a bit overkill. If the weather...

Tofino is one of my family's favourite places to go to and spend a quiet weekend. Of all the local accommodations we've stayed in, Sea Star Suites definitely sits on top of our list. Only steps away from Chesterman beach, this mature property has aged beautifully...looks much better in real life than on the pictures. We stayed in the main...

We stayed in main suite, greeted with 'money upfront' from cherylinne. Musty smell on entering suite, no views from bedroom widows as looking out on interior buildings, no laundry facilities, sockets in kitchen failed, no big deal but when we reported same the response was 'what'.

This apartment is a gem. We liked the cozy cabin feel that rewards you when you step into the room. Virtually all open plan very large but cozy . The room overlooks the private garden hardly any noise from the other neighboring rooms . A sprawling sofa to curl and a large comfy bed to climb into at the end...

I stayed here a for a few days to explore Tofino and absolutely loved the suite! It was only steps away from Chesterman Beach, and a 5 minute drive to downtown Tofino. The suite we stayed was called the Main Suite, it had a kitchen, two bedrooms with queen size beds, two washrooms, and a living room. There was also...

We stumbled on this excellent property on Tripadvisor and were highly satisfied with the choice. Our huge unit was equipped with almost anything you could need for this type of self contained accommodation. The owner gave us a very warm welcome despite the fact that we arrived early after miscalculating the time it would take to drive from Nainamo. The...
