Of all the B&Bs we stayed in during our three week visit to Canada this had the most amazing location - right on the beach in Tofino. We had the Lookout Suite which enabled us to do just that - look out onto the beach ...if only the weather had been a little kinder it would have been perfect! The room is very well designed if a little small with a good bathroom and a good sized outside deck.
Our hosts made us feel very welcome and this set up is designed for the ultimate in privacy. I feel sure that if you put your mind to it you could be entirely private and not see anyone for your whole visit. The breakfast option is very good and Linda produces very healthy offerings that are a little different to the standard bed and breakfast fare. We enjoyed buying and eating fresh steamed crab from the little fish shop in Tofino, and had a good meal at the Schooner restaurant. We thought the whale watching a little over-rated ( Grey whales are not that easy to see ) but the trip to see black bears was outstanding. Most of all we enjoyed walks on the beaches and in the rainforest despite the rain!
We enjoy the social nature of B&Bs so for us this was a little isolationist, and also compared to the other B&Bs we stayed at I thought this a little expensive overall - although it does reflect the location. Still an excellent choice for something a little different in Tofino.
