“Our own corner of paradise”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

There is so much to say about the Brimar we don't know where to begin. It started when we drove up and were greeted by Dieter who helped us carry in our bags. The house is spectacular and our room, The Loft, was amazing . The view of the ocean is absolutely breath taking. It has now become the wallpaper on our iPhones and home computer. Paula's breakfasts are to die for. Besides the homemade granola and fresh fruit, there was fresh bread from athe local Tofino bakery, yogourt and cereals. She also made a hot entree each morning which for us was a mouthwatering omelette, whole wheat waffles and eggs Benedict. Each meal had a different slant to it not just the usual fair. e.g. the eggs bene had fresh spinach and thinnly sliced tomato as well as a just-prepared Hollandaise sauce. The coffee was also excellent.
Paula was a wealth of knowledge on the Tofino area and gave us many ideas on what restaurants to try or where to hike. She is a superb hostess. As mentioned above, The Loft was a piece of paradise. It is very spacious and has the uniqueness of having a skylight above the king size bed. Thus we were able to stare at the stars one night and watch the rain another. Even though it was October, our bay window was always open so we could hear the sound of the ocean. Thank you Paula for letting us share this experience

Room Tip: All rooms 3 face the ocean but the loft is superior. We were the only people so can't comment on...

We stayed for 5 days and we'd recommend it to anyone. Paula made us feel like one of the family, and we miss her breakfasts already. The loft is a gorgeous room to watch winter storms in, and when we stayed we were fortunate enough to be there during a meteor shower, so we got to watch shooting stars through the skylights at night. The beach is a wonderful place to go for a stroll morning or night with a warm drink. It was a nice relaxing trip and if we visit again we will be staying here!

One of the most wonderful places, I've ever vacationed. Beautiful home, beautiful views and Paula, a wonderful hostess. Left feeling relaxed, refreshed and recharged. The beach is the back yard. Beautifully landscaped.

This house is absolutely beautiful. We stayed in the Loft, had a wonderful view of the beach and slept very comfortably every night. Our breakfasts were excellent and generous. We had a skylight over our bed, stargazing from bed, what a concept. If you are looking for a memorable, romantic and private stay, this is the place. We spent our days exploring the Pacific Rim National Park, there are many trails, and of course lots of beaches. We took a whale watching trip with "Remote Passages" and highly recommend this company. We are not into surfing, but if you're interested you'll have the opportunity in Tofino, this is quite the surfer town and rentals are available. You will also need to rent a wet suit, we were there in August and everyone wore a wetsuit as the water is FREEZING. Keep in mind Tofino is VERY expensive so check out costs for your activities before going.

We highly recommend the BriMar B&B. A beautiful home, right on the beach in Tofino. Super comfortable rooms, extremely clean, and wonderful breakfasts. Paula is a gem - she is very helpful, makes delicious breakfasts, and is ALWAYS smiling. Who could ask for any more from a B&B?

Our stay at Brimar was wonderful. This B&B offers a beautiful space in a great location on the beach. The breakfasts were delicious: omelets, fresh fruit, waffles and fresh baked granola. We got first rate service. Thanks.
