“Awesome place!”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

We stayed in the studio for 2 nights. It was very comfy, with a wooden interior(on the floors and the roof...). It's an open-spaced room with a well equiped kitchenette. There was also a big BBQ on a small patio that was exclusively ours. The room was quiet and very clean. The beach, accross the street, is easy to access. There is free parking and the owners gave us good tips about the nice places around the area and the good restaurants in the city. I would definitively recommend this place!

Room Tip: The studio is perfect for a couple!

Stayed 3 nights at the loft. The place is located a brief walk from a nice beach. We had a beautiful sunset there. It is a bit far from Tofino itself for dinning out but it has a well equiped kitchen with many condiments and it is possible to have a quiet meal. We bought live crab and spot shrimps at the fishermans warf and had a nice dinner. A pity there is no dishwasher to help with the dishes after such a nice meal. Another option is to have a meal at the luxurious hotel at the end of the road. The place has a washer cum dryer, European style which takes about 3 hours to complete the cycle, so take your time. The place is clean and the garbage is collected every day. Check in and out is fast and simple. Did not meet the owners but there was a helpful person in charge who was waiting for us. Parking in the premises is free and easy, something to take into account especially so close to the beach. Wifi worked well. If staying in the loft please note that there are stairs. It could be a problem for some. In sum the feeling is more of a delux cabin than a retreat or a home away from home. Furniture is a bit in need of a renewal and a layer of fresh paint in the stairs wall would have been nice. Also the entrance to the apartment is more like a warehouse or a garage. The shower and faucets a bit complex, and the toilet paper inside of the cabinet odd, but that is of course less important.

Room Tip: Loft is quiet but there are stairs to take into account if less mobility

Our family of 4 stayed at the Sea Star a recent cabin acquisition next door to the bed and bed breakfast.

AMAZING. The cabin has everything you need and more. Todd and Lynda are excellent hosts.

You won't find a better location and you won't be disappointed.

Todd and Lynda, Thank you so much for sharing your paradise with us.

We found this resort-like lodging on Tripadvisor and very happy with our choice. The family that runs the resort are retired and obviously spend their time providing wonderful accommodations in the 3 well appointed suites. Ours was a large ground floor suite with private garden and patio, complete with Jacuzzi tub, queen poster bed, kitchen, gas fireplace and LCD TV.The unit comes with washer and dryer, terry robes and plenty of towels. We were across the road from Chesterman beach and a 5 minute drive from Tofino. We enjoyed our four days and would surely come back.

Room Tip: Ground floor at the rear is closet to the hot tub.

Just happened on sea Star by accident! So glad we did. We stayed in the Studio and loved it. Extremely comfy and perfect for two. A bit different the way it is laid out but very thoughtfully done. Clean, private and very close to the beach and Tofino. Great hosts, although you never see them if you don't want to? Well stocked little kitchenette and lovely soaker tub. We'll be back.

Room Tip: For a romantic time choose the Studio! Small and compact but everything you need.

It was our first time in Tofino, and the Sea Star was a great place to call home base! Our suite was very comfy-cosy and Rod and Kelly let us enjoy the peace and serenity of our trip, yet were right there when we had questions. Rod is a fountain of knowledge of the area and sent us to some beautiful places we otherwise would have missed. Its a short walk to the beach across the road, yet you're tucked in the trees with lots of birds. The back yard is lovely with a big hot tub, BBQ and chairs, and the suite has wonderful beds, cosy duvets, lovely pillows all making for a great night's sleep. Fully kitted kitchen, big screen TV and blueray DVD player, fireplace with a cozy sofa in front of it, its just the greatest place! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a comfy, relaxed place to call home for a while.

Room Tip: In the Main Suite there was some noise transfer from the suite above us when they showered early in...
