My husband and I took our 11 yr old daughter to Ucluelet in Sept. 2005 and we stayed 5 days at Reef Point Cottages. We thought it was wonderful!
Marnie, the manager, wasn't at all hard to get along with, gave us excellent directions and recommendations on restaurants, etc.
Our cottage was beautifully furnished and had every cooking implement we could have asked for - even a blender! It all appeared to be brand new: guess we were the first to stay in that cottage who actually cooked!
We weren't able to reserve a cottage with a jacuzzi (bummer!) but we did have a large jacuzzi tub in our upstairs bedroom. It was just as nice.
Don't pay more for "a view" because there aren't any. One set of cottages faces the road and the other looks out on a murky backwater area - when not obscured by trees.
But beaches, hiking trails, inlets, and great nature stuff are all just a few minutes' walk away. Although the cottages are quite close together (less than 10 feet, I think), we never had noise problems.
There are resident cats at the property and they are very friendly. Our daughter was thrilled because she misses her animals when we travel. Marnie even gave her a box of treats so she could lure the cats to our cabin!
The living room had a sleeper sofa, TV, satellite TV connection, CD/DVD player, an assortment of games and books. The deck had a small table with a nice gas grill.
Our bathroom had the jacuzzi tub, VERY comfortable bed, and huge bathroom with a tiled shower.
Check out the rental program where you can get free nights depending on how many you stay.
And book WELL IN ADVANCE!! We booked in March for September and almost didn't get in at all. That really tells you what a good value it is and how nice the people are.
