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... More

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'. On the positive beautiful Chesterman beach across the road, 10 mins drive to Tofino... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the studio room. The suite is huge! It has a fridge, washing machine/drier, kettle, hob and pans, although we didn't cook at all whilst we were there. The bed is really comfortable and the jacuzzi bath is a nice addition. Sherilyne is a great host and we felt really welcome. She gave us some... More

This small, three suite house is indeed what we would call a mini-resort. It is too small for a golf-course or tennis-court but it has a hot tub outside, a whirl pool inside and all the cosiness and friendliness you want to have during your holidays. We were given the suite at the front that had its own small patio... More
