“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

This was our 4th visit to the ocean breezes suite and each year becomes more precious than the previous. Our holiday rejuvinates and is the most relaxing time. Todd and Lynda are the perfect hosts with wonderful ideas and insight as to what might be an enjoyable experience while staying with them. We have had 2 trips out on Mikes boat and it goes without saying how many wonderful memories those outings have given us as well. We look forward to many more vacations to our home away from home with our extended family Terry and Roberta.
Thank you Todd and Lynda

We stayed in Todd and Linda's Garden Cottage. It was a peaceful getaway, and the Cottage is a lovely place to come home to after a day of whale watching! The cottage is decorated with Todd's original photography- he really is an artist. The floors are original to the cottage and have a lovely patina, and the whole place has been refurbished exactly as you would expect a cottage to be.

The kitchen is small but efficient, with all the small appliances and small wares you need to prepare meals. There is wireless Internet which more than made up for the lack of a tv. (Unless there is a tv that we just didn't find, but we practiced the lost art of reading.)

Access to the best beach on the west side of Vancouver Island is right out the door, and Murphy the dog was available for walks on the beach. All in all, it was the best place we stayed at in our two weeks on the island, and we would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for accommodations in Tofino.

What a beautiful place! Loved staying in the Garden Cottage, so cozy and comfortable. Cannot beat the location just steps from the beach great for long walks or just sitting and enjoying scenery. This truly is the perfect place for a relaxing and peaceful vacation. Todd and Linda are fabulous hosts and made us feel very much at home. Can't wait for my next visit!

Stayed with Todd and Linda (only met Todd). We booked the "Garden Cottage" in the back yard of the property (read no ocean view)...but this was perfect for us. Great cosy cottage,
clean, great bathroom and bedding and nice and quiet and peaceful. Todd met us with a smile and promptly gave us a great run down on the area, activities and places to eat. (Which we found all to be great dining experiences...Thanks Todd). Would definately recomend the "cottage" to those who are looking to do there own thing and have a great time in Tofino.
Todd was a great advisor on where and what was good in Tofino and would go back for a longer stay as soon as possible. Also Tofino itself, The Wickenish for dinner, watching the tides and surfers, Great dinners, laid back vibe....a definite destination for anyones travel map.

Cheers,
Jimmy Sarnia

We stayed at Chesterman Beach B&B for our honeymoon while in Tofino and had an amazing time. The Ocean Breeze Suite was the perfect getaway for a few days in Tofino. We were steps to the beach where we went on several walks, enjoyed the sunsets and watched the surfers. The suite itself was perfect and had everything we needed. It had a very relaxing and peaceful feel with the decor and view of the ocean. Todd was also a great host, he was very helpful and provided several suggestions on local restaurants and activities. We felt very much at home. And thanks for the champagne!
We were very sad to leave and will definitely return one day!

Spent a very enjoyable 6 days with my son at Chesterman beach in a very relaxing atmosphere and location after 6 days of backpacking in Canadian Rockies! Accommodation was top class and host Todd was very helpful and informative. No hesitation in recommending. Hope to make it back some day to both Chesterman and Tofino for what was a truly wonderful holiday. Paul & Ciaran, Ireland.

My wife and I spent two nights at this wonderful B&B. After experiencing other B&B's at various other locations (and not being impressed) we were very hesitant with our expectations with this place. From the moment that we pulled into the driveway, to the moment that we left we were blown away. Being 5 steps from the beach (Not an exaggeration), and being in the suite that we were, we had a fabulous time. We wanted to be left alone and relax for 2 days, and we were. We wanted it to be quiet, and it was. Couldn't ask for a better experience.

We would (and will) recommend it to any and all of our friends and family. We plan on going back multiple times to this piece of paradise! Darren & Rebekah.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Ocean Breeze, fantastic suite. Lots of space and you can see the beach from almost...
