“Experience nature at its best!”
Reviewed September 4, 2011

Staying at Gull Cottage allowed my husband and I to quickly access some of the most beautiful beaches and forests we've ever seen. Our hosts, Duncan and Robin, were wonderful. They provided excellent recommendations for restaurants, kyaking outfitters, and hiking spots along the coast. The breakfasts were fantastic and the conversations with the other guests were lots of fun. We highly recommend this B&B!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Rainforest room, where we had an up close and personal view of the beautiful trees.

My husband and I had a great time at the Gull Cottage. We booked it for our honeymoon and were not disappointed. The service was excellent, the rooms were very clean, the food was delicious, and Robyn and Duncan made us feel welcome.

When asked about what to do in Tofino, Robyn and Duncan were happy to suggest places to visit, restuarants to eat at and things to see. We enjoyed the morning chats around the breakfast table, and the at home atmosphere. The common rooms were well kept and great to relax in after a stroll on the near by beach.

Room Tip: Ask for the Rainforest room. It is the biggest room with a soaker tub, separate shower in the priva...

Lots of little extras that make all of the difference when you are far from home. A beautiful home with living space set aside for guests, as well as an area for coffee with a fridge and quiet alcove for writing letters or relaxing. Beach access nearby, wonderful breakfasts and very informative discussions with the owners. They know the area and are very helpful, finding and giving information to guests that have never been to the island or to this country before. We (and K.O.) hope to return again one day... P.S.: Just rec'd an e-mail from a couple from France that stayed there the same time we did!

Room Tip: Discuss your needs with the owners (they told us that next visit we need a larger room - 'cause...

We were having a great time at Gullcottage. The hosts were super, friendly and helpful. We felt really welcome and everything worked very well. The area is quiet and we slept like babies in the silence, only a faint noise from the ocean could be heard. We received many great tips on activities and attractions. Also Gullcottage partners had a very good service and met our expectations. We rented bikes one day. It worked well since there is bike paths next to the road so you can be safe in the traffic. We also visited Hotsprings. A wonderful experience, and during the boat trip we saw several whales, two in one instead of going on a separate whale watching safari. We stayed in both the simpler and the most luxurious room, Both were good but the later have a lot of space and many windows which give a close contact with the wonderfully lush greenery around the house. A visit to Tofino and stay at Gullcottage recommended! Really!

We would definitely recommend Gull Cottage to anyone visiting Tofino. We stayed for 3 nights and had a great time. It is in a really good location and only a minutes walk from the beautiful Chesterman Beach. Robin and Duncan made us feel really welcome (and Tarka and Bodie the dogs!) and gave us lots of useful tips about restaurants and places to visit. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast is delicious! Overall, a great experience!

We visited Tofino and stayed in Gull Cottage in the middle of August. Robin and Duncan are very friendly and helpful hosts, giving us valuable tips on the best hikes and the best places to eat.
The rooms and bathroom were generous and perfectly clean, providing such thoughtful supplies as bathrobes slippers and special towels to dry long hair. My wife and daughters appreciated. Outside is a hot tub, very nice after a day hiking.
Robin and Duncan make a delicious breakfast and make you feel at ease and welcome. There's a living room downstairs well stocked with books and CD's as well as a TV set with DVD player. However, Tofino is such a gorgeous place that you won't need television!
