Some really nice touches, including outdoor claw foot tub and the most amazing outdoor rainforest shower on the planet.....peppermint shampoo and conditioner to top it off!

I arrived to jazz and chocolate and immediately felt my whole body relaxing. What an incredible, peaceful place. I wish I could have spent more time, and hope to come back soon! Sulo and Louise - you were fabulous hosts! The only thing I wished for were screens on more of the doors and windows so that I could sleep...

We loved everything about our stay at The Shipwreck. When we arrived, there was music playing, chocolates waiting for us on the table along with a personalized note. The location is great. It is walking distance from the beach and close enough to town to go roam around. Next time around we will make sure we bring our bikes so...

Myself and my girlfriend decided upon a trip to Vancouver Island as a finale to our 2 year working holiday visa in Canada. During that time, work has taken prominence and we were desperately seeking solitude to leave on a high. We stayed in 'The Shipwreck" cottage and it was an incredible experience from start to finish. So many carefully...

A wonderful cottage , cuter than the pictures! We arrived to find the cottage cozy and clean, with great music playing and so private. The location is perfect right across from the beach. We can't wait to come back.

The Haidaway couldn't have been better and our hosts were lovely. The cabin is private and charming with modern amenities. It was the perfect location for a luxurious surf trip. You're just a few steps through the rainforest to Chestermans beach. We'll be back!

We had a fantastic time at the Gold Coast Retreat. We stayed at the Haidaway, a lovely cabin fully equipped with everything we needed. The cabin was very comfortable for our family of four, and beautifully designed with an artisan's touch. We were right across the road from Chesterman beach and a quick drive to downtown Tofino.

Gold Coast retreat is a comfortable, funky studio cabin across the road from Chesterman Beach. The cabin is modern, warm and super well equipped for any length of stay. The Hosts live on the property and are friendly and accommodating. We can recommend this property with out any reservation.

We stayed at Shipwreck Cabin on March 21 and 22, 2016 and it was everything we expected and more. Cabin was set up for our arrival with lamps on and fireplace (electric) glowing. There was not one thing we would have asked for to be different, Loved being right across from the beach access path while retaining privacy. Great little...

Absolutely stunning! Awesome place for couples that just want to get a way. The little house is extremely private and perfect for a bath on the deck. Yes there is a bath tub on the deck! The Beach is only 2 mins from the house and is considered one of the top 10 beaches in the world. The owners were...
