“Quaint getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2009

Our cabin for two at Bird's Bay was just what we needed for a three night stay, near the walking trails along the Pacific Rim in Ucluelet. The little cabin was clean and attractive, and the owner had placed flowers and anniversary greetings in the room upon our arrival.
The only suggestion I might make is placing some shampoo, etc in the room. I think guests have come to expect those amenities.

If you want a stress-free, pleasant holiday, I have to recommend you stay away from the Birds Bay Retreat. The owner seems to be rather prone to irratic bursts of rage. Long story short, my friends and I had booked 4 nights there over the Labour Day long weekend, and when we showed up the owner lost her temper and turned us away because she felt some 'tension' between us (and tried to keep our deposit!). We were left without a place to stay for the long weekend. The 'cabin' didn't look very nice anyways, very cold and cramped, and the description of 'steps from the pacific ocean' may have referred to the swamp in the backyard, I'm not sure. Anyway, there are plenty of lovely cabins down the road to choose from. I would recommend Reef Point Cabins, or Wild Pacific Cabins. Both were lovely and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
