My husband and I stayed at the Haidaway Cottage for five nights in November 2016. So many little "extras" that were so appreciated! It was AMAZING! No need to grab anything other than food and drink because the owners made sure there was everything stocked; rain jackets, spices, beach chairs, flashlights, tea lights, good toilet paper, shampoo and conditioner, soap,...

This sweet cozy cottage just minutes from Chesterman Beach was exactly what we needed for a private get-away with no worries. The supplies provided were extensive and, except for cinnamon, were as complete as my own home, including toiletries, kitchen gadgets and bubblebath. The very private outdoor blue clawfoot bathtub was such a cute and useful addition. Washer/dryer, everything, was...

Really enjoyed our stay . The accomodation was great for my daughter and I . We both loved the outdoor bathtub . Our hosts had thoughtfully provided flashlights and an umbrella. The place was clean,inviting and cosy. The little stove was warm and inviting after a stroll on the beach in the cooler evenings. We would love to go back.

The hideaway was just two minutes from the beach. It was very quiet and very cute. We had two couples staying for three days and we enjoyed it very much. There is a lot to do in Tofino, whale watching taking a boat up to the Hot Springs and just poking around in the small town of Tofino. A great...

A family of 5 stayed for surf at the Hacienda with walking distance to Chesterman Beach, the house was spacious and had all we needed; fully equipped kitchen, Bbq, a beautiful little garden with an outdoor shower an bathtub (so convenient after a surf in sandy wetsuit) and such friendly neighbours. We could definately recommend this place!

The Shipwreck cabin has been detailed to accommodate all of your needs for a two day visit or longer. I love the cabins' small size and how well appointed it is, with no feeling of clutter. The kitchen has been well thought out and as a chef I loved working in it. The natural wood work, privacy and only a...

The shipwreck cottage was the most charming, cozy little home that gave us such joy to stay in. The place is exceptionally well equipped for all your basic needs, from the rustic bathroom to the sea-inspired kitchen, to the beautiful furniture. The place is a short walk to Chesterman beach, making it really easy to spend lots of time by...

Spent 6 nights at the Gold Coast Retreat enjoying the Shipwreck Cabin. What a lovely, well-equipped, private escape ... one visit will certainly not be enough! Chesterman Beach is literally a mere 3 minute walk, ocean sounds at night are soothing, Tofino is a short bike ride away and we just can't say enough about our vacation. Thanks to Sulo...

We stayed in the Haidaway cabin. It can sleep 4. Full kitchen facilities, laundry and the most gorgeous private yard full of honeysuckle, hostas and a number of other beautiful plants and trees. There is an outdoor tub big enough for two and an outdoor shower. We sat on the large deck and watched hummingbirds, eagles, and osprey fly by....
