“Clayoquot retreat”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

We stayed at the Clayoquot Retreat Bed and Breakfast in Tofino. We felt like part of the family. We really enjoyed our rooms view of the Ocean and the hot tub overlooking the Sound. Lynn supplied the best breakfast we had on our trip. The sausage pie was fantastic.

“Meares Island”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

We took a boat to Meares Island and were thrilled with the experience - 2000 year old trees and their peers. Amazing. Our driver was well versed on the area and we learned more than we expected on the boat ride to and from the island.

“Open House Weekend”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

We were very fortunate to be in Tofino for the one weekend of the year when Susan Bloom opens her beautiful home and gardens to the public. She even provides transportation to the island. It's breathtaking. The gardens are exquisite, rhododendrons and blossoms I've never seen before in that gigantic British Columbia size. The boardwalk leads out to the beach which stretches forever and is covered with gigantic shells of every variety. The land has been mostly deeded to the nature conservancy now - it's good to see the care that is being taken of this fantastic natural resource.

“Nature's finest!”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

Clayoquot Sound is un-spoiled nature at its best. An amazing day spent on the Sound with Browning Pass Charters viewing wildlife in the setting it should be viewed: Wild. Clear, calm waters, crisp Spring air and all the accompanying animals doing what animals do best. An amazing experience!

“Heart of a community”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

I don't really think there is anything about this area that is subpar. Clayoquot Sound itself is beautiful - plus you get the heartbeat of a community with all the hubbub of Tofino and the fishing and whale watching and kayaking. It's just a fascinating place to visit.
