“Great place, great price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Three of us stayed in the kitchen garden suite over the Thanksgiving weekend. Very comfortable, fully equipped and quiet, and the price was great considering it was a long weekend in Tofino. It's about a 25 min. walk into town, much less by bike, and about half that to Mackenzie Beach. Wildside Grill, surf rentals, basic groceries and a coffee shop are just around the corner on the highway.

We were 4 adults and we stay in the "sunset suite" for 2 nights. Everything was great. Really clean, spacious, and comfortable suite with a kitchen well equipped. We also have a complete breakfast on the morning, with pancakes and eggs, and a great view on the rain forest! We highly recommend it.

We were a group of 5 adults and a baby and we took both the 'kitchen garden suite' and the 'sunset suite' for two nights over the labor day weekend. It was awesome! Everything was well set up for us beforehand including the playpen for the baby and a perfect futon bed. The kitchen was complete with all the cutlery and utensils and the fridge even had some starter breakfast food items including fresh milk. The bathrooms were neat and clean and the shower was excellent. Malody and Harold are great hosts and provided us excellent suggestions and advice for dining, beaches and other activities. The place is really close to the beach within walking distance. Downtown Tofino isn't too far either. This was the second time I stayed at their place and I would definitely like to go back for a third time. Next time, I plan to stay longer. A highly recommended accommodation within reasonable price range.

Room Tip: I prefer the sunset suite. Very cosy and comfortable. There's an outdoor shower as well.

We stayed in the lovely "Sunset Suite" for 3 nights. Melody and Harold Sadler are absolutely terrific hosts and wonderful people! The large, clean room has lovely garden and forest views and contained everything we needed for our short visit. . . even a large private bathroom. The kitchenette was adequate for some limited cooking and food storage. They even stocked it with breakfast fixings, in addition to the basics like salt, pepper, coffee, honey, etc. The queen sized foam bed was very comfy and the gas fireplace romantic. There is WIFI, and even though there was no TV, they have a good selection of movies.

Melody and Harold are welcoming hosts, who want you help you have the best experience ever. This family has been here for generations. . . they are well known and respected in the community.

Highly recommended accommodation!

Room Tip: The Kitchen Garden suite may have a full kitchen.

Thanks so much for your generous, well thought-out review--I should use it on my website! We really enjoyed getting to know you both as well. Yes, you are correct that our larger suite--the Kitchen Garden Suite--has a complete kitchen, with full-sized everything. It's the best one for people to book if they want to make full, homemade dinners. Our guest families particulary love it. Though not too big for a couple, it can sleep up to 5, and has a table with a large insert easily seating 6. Perhaps you will return one day to try it out?!

Had a great week in the Summerhill "Kitchen Garden" suite in early July. The owners (Melody and Harold) are superb hosts - the suite was in great shape on arrival, the buttermilk pancake mix was a winner, and their help and advice throughout the stay was really appreciated - we only had to ask. Summerhill is located in a quiet area only a few minutes walk from MacKenzie Beach. We found it very convenient - a few minutes drive gets you into the centre of Tofino (about 3Km) while the southern end of Chesterman beach is only three or four minutes away - it had wonderful sunsets. Summerhill was a great place to stay and I only wish we'd had more time to spend there. We will be back.

We stayed at the Summerhill Guest House late September 2011 and it was excellent. Owners Harold and Melody are very friendly and Harold gave us a lot of good suggestions for exploring Tofino and its surroundings.
The guesthouse itself is very spacious, clean and homey.
They left us some eggs, milk, pancake mix etc in the fridge to get started which we found to be really thoughtful.
Perfect location also, easy driving everywhere.
Don't think twice about this one, go ahead and make a reservation!
