“No where like it”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

After 7 years of going to the Chesterman Beach B&B it has lost none of it's charm, appeal or draw. If anything, it gets better and better year after year. Todd and Lynda are charming and helpful hosts. Whether your looking for a holiday where you can walk the beaches and rainforest trails or if you're looking for the ideal place to relax, sit back and enjoy the beautiful view form the Ocean Suite, no where better fills the bill than the Chesterman Beach B&B. Once you've tried this place you won't got anywhere else when going to Tofino.

Room Tip: The Cottage, Lookout Suite and Ocean Breeze Suite are all wonderful. None will disappoint so go ahe...

Four senior ladies had a desire to experience a west coast winter storm first hand & what an experience it was! We stayed in the lovely ocean breeze which was like a home away from home. It was a wonderful get-away, thank you Lynda & Todd for all your kindness & hospitality. We're already talking about coming back again next Feb-2014. See you then!!
We will be recommending Chesterman Beach b&b to all our friends, I know they'll love it as much as we did.

The Lookout at Chesterman has been our 'destination of choice' for 12+ years running. Why go elsewhere when you can count on the consistant qualitiy of care and accomodation Tod and Lynda provide. We are 'empty nesters' and working hard to spend our kids (5) inheritance. Thus we stay for 4 or 5 nights during the 'storm season'. Improvements, updates, refreshes are the norm with Todd and Lynda. As the first B&B at Chesterman, they keep the place immaculate by re-investing our investment in the place. Also tried the Garden Cottage one year. Very spacoius and tatesfully appointed. Do check out Todd's 'large format' photography installed in all the suites. Both have had rich life experiences prior to Chesterman.
Chat them up - you will be inspired.

A favorite West Coast place to visit is Florencia Bay (turn off at old Wickannish Inn Road). Wild, surging seas with eagles and other birds of prey soaring overhead - out of this world!
22Km south from Chesterman. View a sunset at Cox Bay next door at the Long Beach Resort
Great Room. Then come 'home' to Chesterman. Couldn't be sweeter.

We stayed in the Garden Cottage for our long weekend getaway. It was amazing! It was nice, clean, private and perfect for a couple. The only unfortunate thing was that we couldn't stay longer!! The cottage was so cozy, and the decor was timeless.

We booked our weekend during 'Storm Season' and we were hoping for a good storm, but instead we got beautiful sunshine and clear skies.. no complaints there! The sunsets were breathtaking, no pictures could ever do them justice.. and the stars, they were unbelievable!! I've never seen anything like it.

All in all, our weekend was perfect. Todd & Lynda were fantastic, so welcoming. Lynda gave us great advice on where to go to eat, and even let us use their rain gear (adults in rubber boots is so much fun!!) to go walk the beach when the tide was out. So if you're ever in Tofino, be sure to stay here, you'll never regret it, or forget it.

Room Tip: Since we stayed in the Garden Cottage it was perfect for a couple. There is a pull-out couch so it w...

The only thing we would've liked to change during our stay in the Garden Cottage at Chesterman Beach was the length of our stay. Unfortunately we only spent one night, but to honest there's no amount of time that would've been long enough. Todd and Lynda were incredibly welcoming and accommodating and ensured that we were provided with everything to enjoy our stay to the fullest. If you are looking for a cozy & blissful hidden oasis just steps away from the ocean, this is where you want to stay!

cheers

We stayed in the Garden Cottage for two nights, and it was definitely not enough - we wanted to stay forever! The interior is so cozy and beautifully decorated. Despite the fact that it is a bit on the small side, it had the perfect amount of furniture without feeling cluttered. The kitchen came fully stocked with a stove, microwave, fridge/freezer and coffeemaker/grinder which was wonderful to make your own breakfast in. All of the stunning photos in the cottage are taken and printed by one of the owners Todd.
As soon as we arrived Todd greeted us outside. He asked if it was our first visit, which it was, so he immediately walked us to the beach (only 15 seconds from where you park your car) and explained the surroundings to us. He then gave us recommendations on places to visit, where to eat, and fun things to do. This was very much appreciated for someone who has never visited a small island town before.
Todd & Lynda have the perfect balance of making themselves available while also giving you all the privacy you desire. They stayed out of our way the entire time, but told us how to contact them if we ever needed anything. Since the cottage doesn't include breakfast we bought food but forgot to buy ketchup... which they lent to us and let us keep for the duration of our stay. This was such a small gesture but again, it was very much appreciated!
I couldn't possibly rave about this place enough. None of the photos or reviews of it do it any justice. The location couldn't be better, the service is unrivalled, and the buildings and interior are absolutely beautiful. If you are ever visiting Tofino do yourself a favour and stay at this Bed & Breakfast. You will not regret it.
