“The BriMar, its fabulous hosts, the breakfasts and Chesterman Beach are AMAZING!!!”
Reviewed August 12, 2010

We recently spent an amazing 7 nights at BriMar in the loft suite; it was difficult to leave and we can't wait to return. I had first contacted Adam in January when I was looking for accomodations and potentially a venue for our August wedding. He was on board right away and was so helpful with the planning, from catering recommendations to logistics of beach fires and meeting with Sheila from Rare Earth to help with the details while we planned from the Okanagan.

We booked all three rooms and it truly felt like we were visiting friends-Adam and Katie were genuine, welcoming and went above and beyond what we could have imagined from a B and B. Fresh cookies snuck into our rooms, a huge spread of breakfast options every morning, including bacon omelettes, french toast, whipped cream, fresh fruit and granola, and allowing our families to invade their home for our reception.

The rooms are all beautiful with vast ocean views peaking out through the trees, and we loved falling asleep with the fresh air and sound of the waves. The skylights are great, especially over the clawfoot tub, and the lighting in the loft suite made for excellent wedding photos. The whole experience was our version of perfect, and I can't believe we were fortunate enough to find BriMar.

Thanks Adam and Katie for such a memorable holiday and experience! We can't wait to return and I think my whole family has invited them to visit:)

I stayed at the BriMar for a week and absolutely LOVED it. The room I stayed in on the top floor was very large but still had a cozy feel to it with a stand up shower, beautiful claw foot soaker tub and an amazing view of Chesterman's beach. Every morning Katie the lovely young hostess would greet me with a warm and caring smile and provide me with a delicious breakfast including freshly baked muffins, coffee, granola, yogurt and assorted fruit. Katie made every day of my week in Tofino fun and adventurous with tips on the best restaurants, beaches, live entertainment and even invited me to a crab bake on the beach with some of the locals one night. I couldn’t of asked for a more friendly hostess and the house itself is one of the nicest I have ever stayed in. Whoever designed it really new what they were doing. Thank you Katie and BriMar for making my week in Tofino so heavenly!

We stayed at the Brimar for 2 nights (Moonrise Room). We really enjoyed our visit!
The room was very nice with a spectacular view on the ocean. The location of this B&B is great, right on the beach and only a short drive to town. Adam made a great breakfast!
We would like to recommend this B&B to everyone who visits Tofino!!

When you walk into the house and see the view of Chesterman beach and the ocean beyond for the first time it takes your breath away. We stayed in the Loft and loved it. Very spacious and quiet. Great views out of the large bay windows. Loved the skylights over the bed and the clawfoot tub. We loved being able to stargaze while laying in bed. We didnt use the wood stove but we might be back to try in the stormwatching season. Adam the host was very friendly and helpful. A special thanks to him for organizing all the stuff I needed for our beachfire and mussel cookout. Adam also makes a very good breakfast. I will stay here again and reccomend it to anyone.

We stayed at Brimar for 3 nights in the Sunset Room. It was a perfect stay with wonderful hospitality. The atmosphere is very laid back, the breakfasts unforgettable, and the location would be hard to beat anywhere. Thanks for a wonderful stay Adam & Katie & Alanna.

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at BriMar. The location cannot be beat - steps away from Chesterman Beach! Adam and Katie were very kind hosts. They were more than happy to provide recommendations on different tours/hikes to take and restaurant ideas. This B&B was extremely laid back and informal. Go for the Loft Room.. it is a bit more expensive but the view of the beach out the window was worth it. We fell asleep each night listening to the peaceful ocean waves.

There was a recent post that gave a much different view of BriMar - a traveler who was unhappy with their stay. There was mention of things related to a dog and lazy management. This was not a problem at all for us. It was clearly noted "no pets allowed" - I never saw a dog when we were there... and like I said, our hosts were gracious and made our stay very comfortable.

I would stay there again... as a matter of fact, there was a couple who was on their 3rd year in a row of staying there. That is a good sign to me.
