Quiet, serene, and peaceful. Charlie was the best host and so laid back. Beach and town is super close (walking distance). We were even visited by a couple weasels in the morning we left. Will definitely be coming back to this little slice of paradise!!

What a beautiful place for a romantic stay in Tofino. Charlie is the consummate host, with a lifelong knowledge of Tofino and the surrounding area. The suite was so clean and tidy we asked who he had as cleaning staff :) The view overlooking the bay and Meares Island never gets old, rain or shine it's beautiful. It was my... More

Our Birthday celebration spent together here at Meares Retreat was much more than we could have imagined! We turned 70, 50, 40, and sweet sixteen collectively. Impeccably clean, thoughtfully detailed, and just a stones throw from downtown made walking the logical choice. Thank you Charlie!

We had a billing problem, due to an error on the owners part, and it was a huge hassle. We ended up having to cancel a credit card account we'd had for 25 years. Otherwise I would have given it a 4.5. Walk to town, great view, advice on where to go and what to do, good breakfast, nice rooms.... More

My fiancé surprised me with a two night stay last summer (July 2014) at Charlie's fabulous B&B. The views are stunning, breakfast is delicious (all local goods), and Charlie is a wonderful host. Not only did we have a wonderful experience here we also got engaged on the last morning we were there. I could not have pictured a more... More

To top that we were upgraded to the large suite with the best views and private hot tub. Second the breakfast is fabulous, warm... More

We had a 2 week vacation planned and the final destination was Tofino. We ended up booking 2 nights at Meares Retreat to treat ourselves after a few days of camping out on the road and what a nice surprise this was. Make sure you write the directions down before you start you drive over from Nanaimo because there is... More

With my little family we stayed 2 nights in this B&B and it was just perfect. Charlie, the owner, is attentive, discreet and allows you to share his beautiful home with a breathtaking view. Breakfast is all just wonderful. We just regret one thing, not being able to stay longer ... paradise!
