“Really couldn't have been better”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

We spent four nights here recently in the Rainforest Suite. I had originally wanted to book one of the bigger suites, the Rainforest being the smallest but could not, due to availability. However on arrival we couldn't have been happier and our stay really was a highlight of our visit to Canada. The suite was spacious, spotlessly clean and had everything we could need. We loved our delicious, home baked breakfasts delivered to the privacy of our room and Chris and Nicky were perfect hosts - available and on hand for travel advice but unobtrusive. The location of this charming B and B couldn't be better - right opposite Chesterman Beach.

Travelling extensively with work, I don't give glowing reviews without real reason and also - on principle - only review places, activities and restaurants that we feel are 4 or 5 star. This is an absolute treasure of place and one I hope we will come back to. I will certainly treasure the picture that I acquired while I was there of the beach (a photograph taken by Chris who is obviously talented in this area too!) with incredibly fond memories. Thanks and best wishes to Nicky and Chris.

We stayed 4 nights at Harvey House and we could not have had a better experience. Chris and Nicky were the perferct hosts. They were very welcoming and Harvey House has been built and finished to an exceptionally high standard. The room was fresh, modern and spacious and yet very comfortable and peaceful, it was like being in the forest and just across the road to the wonderful Chesterman Beach.

We especially appreciated Nicky & Chris' local knowledge which was so helpful and the breakfast, delivered to you door every morning with a cheery " good morning " knock on the door, was superb, all freshly home baked breads, muffins and more. We couldn't wait for the next day's breakfast treats.

Harvey House has a great position in a leafy road a fantastic location and a great base for exporing Tofina and the Pacific Rim National Park. We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else in Tofino and so thank you to Chris and Nicky for making our stay special.

Having just spent 4 nights here I felt compelled to spread the word about how great Harvey House b&b is !
I don't usually go for b&b's assuming they'll be a bit twee and old-fashioned and lacking in privacy. Harvey house is the complete opposite of this.
It is stylishly decorated and the owners , Chris and Nicky are very helpful with hints and suggestions but in an unobtrusive way.
They also provide a wonderful breakfast and I looked forward to the knock on the door each morning and finding a tray of home baked delights . Presentation was excellent and they are very good cooks, some notable delights being mushroom and feta omelette, cinnamon buns and peach and coconut muffins. Always lovely fresh fruit and rolls each day too.
The bathroom was also very good with an excellent hairdryer provided with nozzle and a plug right next to the mirror.
Add in the fact that it's 2 mins walk from an idyllic beach and I really didn't want to leave!
Well done Chris and Nicky.

My wife and I returned for our second visit to the Harvey House and once again, we leave impressed with how well Chris and Nicky operate their B&B. We first visited back in 2009 and we gave them a glowing review back then (under an account we can't remember the password for) and though 4 years have past, nothing has changed.

On our first visit we stayed in the Rainforest Suite which we enjoyed very much but this time we ended up in the Turret Suite and we were even more impressed! The private en-suite is immense and features a double sink, heated slate floors and separate bath and shower. We really felt at home in this suite!

The breakfasts are excellent as well! Fresh squeezed orange juice, warm baked buns, fresh fruit and a protein (different each morning) - All for you to enjoy in the privacy of your room. While we don't mind socializing with other guests, there is something very special about enjoying your breakfast with your spouse (or significant other) in their tastefully appointed suites.

Chris and Nicky are excellent hosts as well! Very helpful with any suggestions and are happy to help with any reservations if required, and provide suggestions for sights to see or things to do in and around Tofino.

Since our first stay in 2009, my wife and I have had the good fortune to travel abroad and stay in various B&B's. We've had some nice comfortable stays and some really dreadful accommodations but, as the title of the review says, the Harvey House is the standard by which we rate every B&B.

Great job, Chris and Nicky!!

Room Tip: If you're going to splurge on anything, try booking the Turret Suite if you can!

Would highly recommend this bed and breakfast! The home was gorgeous and the hosts were great! The location was ideal located just off of Chesterman beach and a short ride from downtown Tofino. Great value for the what you are paying.
