Everything we needed was here. Sulo and Louise were welcoming. We loved the kitty, chickens and pup that came to visit. We loved being close to beaches, Tofino and a short drive to Ucluelet. The deck was a fantastic place to relax after a busy day.
My dog, Samson, recently had knee surgery. The cone around his head is not desired; he accepts it, though.
Stairs are not permitted for Samson, yet. Though there are only two steps, Sulo and Louise brought over wood yesterday and built my dog a ramp to enter the porch to indoors the peaceful cabin. I emphasize that the owners of Gold Coast Retreat built for Samson a ramp. Just for him, Louise and Sulo did this. Wow!
We have stayed at Gold Coast Retreat in Tofino four times previous to this time. It keeps calling us back to the island. Shipwreck Cabin feels so much like a home away from home for both Samson and me.
We stayed at Gold Coast Retreat in the Haidaway cottage. The charming landscaping and decor add a bit of magic to this secluded and peaceful space. It is not on the beach but the access to the breathtaking Chesterman Beach is just across the road. We enjoyed a couple of amazing sunsets while strolling on the beach. The kitchen is well equipped and we appreciated the grill on the deck for preparing the salmon we brought home from Tofino's city center which is a short drive away. We liked having the convenience of the town nearby but not being in the midst of it.
This is a spacious studio cabin, with a lovely beach decor. Kitchen had a dining table with 4 chairs and was equipped with dishes, pots, utensils, coffee, spices and cleaning supplies. Bed and sitting area was fine for two people. The queen sized bed was very comfortable. There was a dresser and an area for hanging clothes. Bathroom had a large shower with good water pressure. The sink drained slowly, but a message was left with the owners to let them know it needed a clean out. I'm confident they will attend to that as evidenced by their attention to detail. The outdoor space was a treat! The beautiful beach is just a short walk, but we enjoyed relaxing on the deck so much, it was hard to leave! As advertised, there is a washer and dryer in an attached laundry room so you don't have to bring a ton of clothes. What a wonderful cabin and location.
It's always a pleasure to stay at the Gold Coast Retreat. The cottage has a beautiful charm and his well furnished with everything you need from bathroom to kitchen. We enjoy that it's walking distant to Chesterman's beach. This is the perfect place to stay when looking for the Tofino vibe.
