“Fantastic”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

We had a wonderful stay with Todd and Lynda. The location is truly fabulous. We had 'The Lookout' - the view is stupendous, with a clear view of Chesterman Beach and the sea. Everything about the accommodations were efficient, clean, comfortable, and considerate. Besides, Todd and Lynda are open and friendly, but only if you initiate contact - otherwise they leave you alone! Not only that - they do the dishes so that you can have a real vacation. We intend to return soon!

Room Tip: For couples the best value is The Lookout. But the two-bedroom suite is also great if you can share...

Our family of 4 (kids aged 7 & 10) had the most wonderful weekend on the west coast and this accommodation was perfect! It was very clean, full of beauty and character, the property fabulous and the beach access and experience the best! The owners are so very helpful and respectful. We spent one night in the 2 bedroom beach front suite and it was absolutely gorgeous. The other 2 nights we were in the garden cottage and it was so full of character and really was a great place for our family to spend time.

These other glowing reviews are no joke, people. This place is the real thing! And even better than the pictures. There are many B&B's in the Tofino area (anyone can make their house into one basically) but Chesterman Beach Bed & Breakfast stands apart in the attention and care that's put into the place, it's perfect location (right on the beach! you're actually lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves), and the laid-back, but professional demeanor of its owners, Todd and Lynda. My boyfriend and i recently travelled up from Los Angeles for a big bday, and we suddenly found ourselves in a British Colombian paradise. The view from the Lookout Suite is no less than breathtaking. The suite itself is beautiful with its layout and decoration (not to mention the cool fireplace and super comfortable four-poster bed), and Todd and Lynda were the most helpful hosts - while at the same time being completely respectful of our privacy. The breakfast was delicious, Todd arranged for bicycles to be delivered to us during our stay, and they were most helpful when my boyfriend needed to FAX back and forth to his office, as we were there mid-week. I know this review sounds over-the-top, but believe me, I am a writer and a tough critic, and I'm compelled to share the news that Chesterman Beach B&B terrifically delivers!

Room Tip: Lookout Suite has the most incredible view and a well-appointed, cozy room!

What a wonderful find—a beautiful and peaceful natural setting just steps to the beach!!

My husbands says this review is way too long, however, I can't say enough good things about Chesterman Beach B & B—no need to read more, though, you can book this wonderful property with confidence!!

It was great to get back to Tofino (7 years since last visit) and share the West Coast beauty with our Prairie friends who were blown away by both the B&B and the surrounding scenery. The Ocean Breeze Suite was perfect for 2 couples—we had lots of space for visiting together or book reading, rejuvenating and ocean gazing in our own space. The glass enclosed sunroom was a fabulous spot for happy hour and surf watching and the heater was appreciated in the cooler hours!

The Suite had everything we needed, including a kitchen fully loaded with full refrigerator / freezer, dishwasher, microwave, stove, coffee maker, toaster, pots, pans, dishes, cutlery, etc. Coffee, tea, creamers and a pitcher of ice water were provided.

The bathroom was a large, lovely space with heated floor, large tub, walk-in shower, housecoats, hairdryer, magnifying mirror, beautiful herbal soaps and an abundant supply of fluffy towels.

Bedrooms had comfy beds (although our bed—in the 2nd bedroom—was a little high for this vertically challenged person).

Special touches included gumboots and rain gear, I-Pod dock / Bose speakers, subtle touches of artist flower / greenery vases, playing cards, candles and flashlight, mood lighting dimmer switches, fireplace, wireless internet and fabulous artwork. All the incredible, inspiring photography is Todd’s own and these can be viewed / purchased through his photo Gallery at website: http://tofinoaccommodation.com

Todd and Lynda are happy to recommend restaurants and activities and we enjoyed a couple of dinners out (The Pointe Restaurant at the Wickaninnish Inn and SoBo’s) as well as a casual lunch at Tacofino—see separate reviews. We left our car at the Wickaninnish Inn the night we dined there so we could all part take of the wine. Todd generously offered to drive us back to pick the car up the next morning, however, we choose the beautiful leisurely walk along the beach to the Wickaninnish instead.

Great experience from initial booking through checkout!! We would highly recommend this accommodation to our family and friends and will look forward to the next opportunity to come back and revel in the beauty and serenity of this lovely property! Nice job Todd and Lynda!!

If you want everything done right in a cozy beachfront setting with artistic gourmet breakfasts and friendly but understated service, look no further. The B&B is conveniently close to Tofino's many attractions yet feels away from it all. Chesterman Beach makes for lovely walks, especially wandering (at low tide only!) out to Frank Island. We're planning our next trip already, you should too.

My husband and I have always wanted to travel to Tofino and finally planned a visit for my 30th birthday. We stayed in the Lookout suite at the B&B and it was so cozy, and came complete with a perfect view of Chesterman beach and it's crashing waves.

Make sure that you take advantage of the yummy breakfasts that Lynda and Todd offer, it was delicious, and presented perfectly.

We plan to return to Tofino with the rest of my family next August for my dads 70th birthday, and I wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else but at the Chesterman Beach B&B!

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...
