So many good things to say! First off Duncan and Robin are super helpful and happy to tell you anything you want to know about Canada, and tell you all the tricks of trade for navigating Tofino, including which restaurants have the best value and which activities give you the biggest bang for the buck. They really want you have a local's experience and will provide you with everything from enough grubby towels for the hot tub and beach, to spare sunglasses, umbrellas, etc. Chesterman Beach is amazing, you literally walk out Gull's doors and it literally is a two second walk across the tree lined street. Breakfast is super filling and yummy, and if you can't make it at the designated time they are happy to pack you a breakfast before you start off for the day. If you aren't sure about whether to stay "downtown" or outside of town, assuming you have a car, it's a no brainer, you choose the beach and Gull Cottage. Town isn't really that far away at all and it's nice to putz around there during the day and head back to your refuge at night. Also Gull Cottage has easier access to Uke and other stops along the main highway. If you are a soccer fan, don't mess with Duncan, he is a huge Manchester United fan! We'd gladly return!
