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

Spent three nights in the main suite, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, fully functional kitchen and a generous living room sitting area. Very clean and in great condition. A very short walk to the beach and a short drive to tofino and to Pacific rim national park. Book far in advance as the suites book up early. There are many other... More

We stayed in the loft suite which is great for families as it has 2 bedrooms of which 1 has bunk beds. The small kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to make a couple of meals. There is free parking and free wi fi. Plus you are an easy walk to Chesterman beach which is beautiful and quieter... More

This property is located just off of Chesterman Beach. You can walk to the beach in less than a minute. It is a short drive into town. You will need a car. Tofino is expensive, and this was a great find at a reasonable price. We stayed in the garden suite which is better in person than it looks in... More

We are currently on a month long trip with young kids around BC and couldn't miss out Tofino. Staying at Sea Star meant we were a minute from the beach to relax on and explore but also close to town. 'The Loft' was perfect for our small family - clean, well appointed and a nice spot to base ourselves from.... More
