“Wonderful vacation getaway”
Reviewed August 12, 2006

Chesterman Beach B&B ,1345 Chesterman Beach Rd, Tofino, BC
Looking for an amazing " get away from it all " haven where you can totally relax to the sounds of the surf on the beach outside your picture window ?
We are going for the third time next month for another wonderful visit with the great hosts Todd and Lynda.
We are booked in to our favorite room The Lookout with its picture window and balcony with steps down to the beach just a few yards away. It has become our most favorite vacation getaway place and is well worth the 1000 mile + drive from California.
Check it out and go there - we're sure you'll love it.
Dave and Janie.

A group of us spent five great days staying with Todd and Lynda in July. I think their approach has been very simple, they asked themselves how they would imagine a beach holiday and they have built a place that delivers everything that is required to make that happen. Kayaks, cruiser bikes, picnic baskets, and good knives in the kitchen. Such a change from the "bare minimum" attitude that people pass off as hospitality in this world. I cant think of too many places where you arrive and they are having a volleyball tournament on the beach and there is a cold Corona in your hand before your feet hit the sand. Nice. The location is unbeatable, we surfed right out front and walking south down the beach takes you through some of the coolest little bays in Tofino. The cabin we stayed in ( the garden cottage ) feels like a world unto itself. We cooked great dinners and ate out on the patio, played bocce on our little lawn and slept late in the shade of the big trees that surround the place. Todd and Lynda are very gracious hosts and its obvious that they get a kick out of seeing people enjoy Tofino and their place so much. We will be back for sure, in fact I cant imagine us going anywhere else.

  • Liked — proximity to the beach, laid back but totally set up.
  • Disliked — cant think of anything.
  • Tips/Secrets — walk south on chesterman beach early in the morning

My wife and I stayed in the Lookout Suite for our honeymoon. It was everything we wanted in a honeymoon: something secluded, romantic, beautiful and quiet. Todd and Lynda were great hosts, and the breakfasts tasted amazing. The scenery on the way to the B&B is breathtaking if you fly into Vancouver and take the ferry across. The drive to Tofino is some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen, and the beach view once you get there is amazing as well. I would recommend Chesterman's to anyone!

Our stay in the LOOKOUT suite at the Chesterman Beach B&B was absolutely incredible!! It made for a perfect location for our secret wedding!! It was wonderful to awake to the view and the sounds of the ocean, just steps away. Lynda and Todd were the most amazing hosts, their hospitality and attention to detail were so appreciated. They anticipated our every need, far above and beyond anything we could have imagined. We sincerely look forward to our return to this most romantic place in the world!!

Spent 4 glorious days in The Ocean Breeze suite of this incredible bed & breakfast. My husband & myself, along with another couple, enjoyed walks on the beach watching the amazing waves of the ocean, walking to the island when the tide went out, relaxing on the patio (dressed warmly of course), and watching the surfers participating in their sport of choice! The suite had two gorgeous bedrooms with the most comfortable beds ever and enjoyed the sound of the surf all night! Beautiful views from the windows to watch the ocean by day and then sit around the fireplace at night with a glass of wine. We did our own cooking in the kitchen and had many gourmet meals that lasted for hours around the table relaxing and enjoying each others company. Definitely recommend this location in every way!

Full disclosure - Lynda and Todd are friends and let me stay in their Ocean Breeze suite at the Chesterman Beach B&B, so I can't speak to value for money here. That said, if you want to slow down and relax then this B&B could be the place for you.

I arrived in Tofino after a business trip to the go-go heart of high technology in California's Silicon Valley. It was like moving into the slow lane, with little traffic on the roads, lots of silence (remember that? I think you'll find you like it), and verdant nature everywhere. The B&B is clad in aged cedar, surrounded by rich and mature planting and beautiful trees and perhaps 20 paces off Chesterman Beach. The sea and the waves are stunning - you can spend a fruitful morning just looking at the waves and weather and letting your mind wander.

The Ocean Breeze suite has its own entrance with a lobby for wet clothes and shoes, two double bedrooms, a jacuzzi bathroom, sauna, dining area, kitchen, sun room and covered outdoor seating area. You could spend a week on holiday here and not have to go further than the beach and the stores for supplies.

Lynda and Todd have done a great job of creating a sense of understated luxury - all the furniture fits with a beach-front location, but turns out to be extremely comfortable for sitting, lounging, lying and, inevitably, napping on.

If you get the urge to get out and about, then there are some good restaurants in Tofino and the Wickannish Inn if you need a fix of uber-luxury. There's a couple of wonderful trails close by that take you through temperate rain forest (think Harry Potter without the adolescents) and there's the beach and the sea for walking, running, swimming, surfing, kayaking etc.

My recommendation, though, would be to use the Chesterman Beach B&B just to unwind. It's got all the ingredients you need for a holiday spent being busy doing nothing.

Nothing could have prepared me for the beauty and the scope of Mother Nature's breathtaking coastal vista, as I had experienced from Chesterman Beach Bed & Breakfast!! Owners Todd and Lynda made me feel like a family member visiting. The accomodations are "rustically plush". The beautiful wood throughout my suite echoed the lush vegetation surrounding the property. The beach, only steps away, defied any beach experience I have witnessed. The stark profiles of the conifers jutting out from the jagged rock islands, against the setting sun, can only be described poetically. I came to relax from a very stressful life in New Jersey, and boy did this place meet the challenge!! There's nothing like reading a good book with the sound of a constant surf! No visit here can go without playing beach bocce. Can't wait for my next visi
