Charlie was an excellent host, he is extremely knowledgeable about the area and will make great recommendations as he shows you the place. The views were impeccable, and private! The location is also close to the main downtown area and about 10-15 minutes away from the strip of beaches. Tonquin beach is less than 5 minutes away, the trail connects to other beaches!

We stayed here for 3 nights. The place is located just a short walk from downtown Tofino. Our suite entered from a wooden deck overlooking a small secluded beach with a view towards Lone Cone mountain on Meare's island. The hot tub on the deck is worth the price of admission alone! The view from inside the suite, both the living/eating area and the bedroom, looked out onto the water - with the windows open a crack you can always hear the relaxing sound of the surf. All the amenities (coffee maker, fireplace, shower, etc) work well, and the place is really clean and cared for. The host Charlie was generous, reliable, and had lots of suggestions for local attractions and food. Thanks so much for a memorable stay, energizing and relaxing Charlie!!

We stayed for 4 nights at Meares Retreat a few weeks ago, and had the most amazing time. Charlie is the perfect host and produces the most amazing breakfasts, brought to your door, so you don't even have to go anywhere. The views from the rooms (and hot-tub!) are absolutely stunning, and there is no need to draw any curtains at night, which let us see the most incredible star filled sky during the night! The walk into Tofino is only 10 minutes and to the most beautiful beaches, also only 10 minutes making this THE perfect place to stay. You will not be disappointed!

We spent 3 nights at Meares Retreat based on previous Tripadvisor reviews. We had a wonderful stay. Charlie was a pleasure to deal with and we were happy to share a meal with him. We could go on and on about our gracious host. The room was immaculate, bed was comfy and the hot tub was divine! Location is perfect, a short walk to town or the beautiful Tonquin Beach. We can't wait to go back!

My wife and I spent four days in owner and on-site manager Charlie ("By the Sea") Meints's b&b. We couldn't have been happier on all counts: comfort of the fully-equipped suite #2; unbeatable view of the inlet and Meares Island through the bay windows and from the private deck; superb and ample continental breakfast including fresh fruit, granola, yogurt, juices, and pastries from a wonderful local baker; private hot tub; bathrobes; fireplace; and Charlie's in-person insights and recommendations on things to do. Frankly, our stay was one of our best ever in any b&b, and we've been in more than a few in the US and abroad. Attention to detail is one of Charlie's hallmarks -- our suite had all the little touches and then some that make a stay memorable. Also, he has strict rules about privacy for his guests that were very welcome. I could go on an on, but trust me -- suffice it to say this: if you are going to spend a few days in Tofino and opt for a b&b experience, you must give Meares Retreat serious consideration. We would go back in a heartbeat.
