“Great Location and Awesome Hosts!”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

The B&B is very homie and comfortable. Robin and Duncan were both extremely accommodating and the breakfast was amazing! We loved the location as it was a quick walk across the street to the beach....perfect for surfing, watching beautiful sunsets, and walking our dog along Chesterman Beach. We decided to order take out one night and eat our dinner in the living room while relaxing and watching one of the many movies in the library. It was the perfect end to a full day of surfing. I will definitely be returning in the near future. Thanks again! Mike and Susana

This B&B is quiet and comfortable, and the hosts were very welcoming and congenial. We loved the location- we had rented stuff to surf and how easy it was to walk across the street to access Chesterman Beach- perfect for beginners! All that surfing made us hungry, and the breakfasts did not disappoint- the food here rates among the best we have had at a B&B. We also appreciated the small kitchen area and separate sitting areas for guests. Fabulous library and CD collection-don't worry if you forget your book. Lots of room in the main bedroom, with lovely natural light. We found the bed a little firm but that could be because we are old beginning surfers!! Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Quiet here- just the distant surf.....no noisy rooms! And I am very very picky about noise.....

We enjoyed our stay immensely. Robin and Duncan were welcoming hosts and catered for all our needs, made delicious vegan and vegetarian breakfast and even helped us to organise our activities in Tofino. The location is brilliant and the house pretty. I liked the many windows in our room. It was like sleeping in an open tree house, only warmer and on a cosy bed.

The only downside; I chose that particular B&B because it advertised a hot tub on their homepage and I wanted to treat my boyfriend who loves hot tubs. It was broken when we arrived and I think there had been time enough to update the homepage.

Room Tip: The rainforest room is worth the extra bucks.

Apologies about the hot tub. We had updated our Trip Advisor site but were waiting until the end of the year to do our annual update of our website with rates, etc.
The hot tub will be removed when we do upgrades to our deck. It has had little use over the past few years (3 times last year and 5 the year before that), I guess they are not as trendy as they used to be. We are not big hot tub users ourselves.
More importantly, we live in an environmentally sensitive area where water is a precious and expensive commodity. The cost of maintenance, water and the pollution concerns when it was drained, have always been a concern.
We are glad that everything else was fine with your stay and hope to see you in Tofino in the future.

A little piece of heaven on the Pacific Rim, this is by far one of the most comfortable bed and breakfast I've experienced in thirty-five years of travel.The breakfast are epicurean delights leaving one to anticipate whats for breakfast tomorrow?Do they serve lunch?Do they serve dinner?.The congenial host (posing as a mild mannered retired geo-physicist) actually appears to have become a five star chef.The hostess makes one feel as though you are returning to your home after a long weary journey.The home itself is spotless and has an ample supply of music and fine literature .Tucked underneath a canopy of evergreens even the landscaping is welcoming.At night, as the hush returns to the shore ,you can hear the distant sounds of the ocean and don't miss strolls on the beach just footsteps away.All recomendations were spot on and much appreciated.It is also conveniently located to all beaches,parks,art galleries,restaurants,kayak tours,whale watching expeditions,and transportation.I am definitely planning to return to this liitle piece of heaven referred to as Gull Cottage.

Robin and Duncan made us feel right at home at Gull Cottage. It's perfectly situated across the road from Chesterman Beach - beautiful spot for early morning walks and watching the stars and sunset. Our room and private bathroom were comfortable and spotless. Breakfasts were delicious and most entertaining. There is so much to do in Tofino, and great restaurants. We will definitely be back!

Gull Cottage has many attractions, access to the Beach, great breakfast and excellent hosts are my top three. The Beach is less than a minutes walk away on the other side of the road and the view is stunning especially if you had the weather we did. The breakfasts we were served smoothie & blueberry pancakes; berries and yoghurt with mushroom omelette to follow and the last morning homemade muesli and berries and orange pain perdu, nom nom. We stayed in the Rainforest room which is huge. Duncan & Robyn are excellent hosts

We stayed for two nights at Gull Cottage near the end of August 2012. Robin and Duncan were exceptional hosts, very welcoming and quick to share their knowledge of what to do and see in Tofino. Duncan kindly accommodated a vegetarian diet with his breakfasts. Their CD collection is extensive, and we enjoyed more than one glass of wine in the cozy Library. Gull Cottage is a wonderful place to stay in Tofino.
