We had a lovely time staying at Gull Cottage with our two dogs. Robin and Duncan not only provided local tips and really creative gourmet breakfasts - they also made our dogs welcome and provided for those dirty paws! The beach was just a short path away across the road - making a really enjoyable and relaxing stay in Tofino.

We loved our weekend at Gull Cottage. The hosts -- Robin and Duncan -- know so much about Tofino. They were able to give us tips on the best places to dine and activities to do. The proximity to the beach is great and allowed for a great moonlight walk to check out the star-filled sky. Food and accommodations were...

My husband and I had previously stayed at Gull Cottage 6 months prior to our second visit, we thought it would be great to get away and catch the fabulous Tofino Storms this time around. I can not say enough great things about this Bed and Breakfast! The location is perfect, just a few steps away from the beach, in...

Gull Cottage B &B is a gorgeous place! Both house and hosts are warm and inviting. We loved the huge bedroom, the soaker tub overlooking coastal rainforest, the reading room, the yummy breakfasts, the short walk to the beach. Bliss! Oh yes, and the cozy living room complete with fireplace, comfy couches and chairs, an impressive CD collection and--best of...

I'll certainly be back to this treasure in the trees - Robin and Duncan's kindness and amazing breakfasts (which took into account my dietary restrictions), the jacuzzi looking up at the stars, the 1-minute walk to the beach...why aren't I there right now?

Once again, we made the trek to Nanaimo and across to the "truly beautiful" Chesterman Beach and our favourite B&B, Gull Cottage. It is always so great to see Robin and Duncan and their pups Tarka and Boda and even though it had been a year since we last visited it felt like only a few months. Robin and Duncan...

Fantastic place to stay on our Vancouver Island vacation. Wonderful accomodations, very warm and inviting, close enough to the beach to hear the waves crashing on the shore. Robin and Duncan made us feel entirely welcome in their home/B&B. We followed all their suggestions on resturants, boat tours, hiking trails and were delighted that we did! The breakfasts (Robin and...

What can we say about Gull Cottage that has not already been said, other than the fact that Robin and Duncan go that little bit further to make your stay with them special and for us it certainly was. We stayed in the Jay room, the only one available, and although smaller than the others it has a comfortable bed...

So many good things to say!

We very much enjoyed our stay at Gull Cottage. Duncan and Robin make you so welcome and nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are spacious and there is a TV/ library and separate music lounge. Breakfasts were great and Duncan's homemade yogurt is just the best. The beach is only a minute away and Robin and Duncan know the area...
