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...

Just going to start off by saying I do spend a chunk of time in Tofino every year surfing mostly staying at hostels and campsites however this was a special trip and the accommodation was amazing. This place is very cozy and cute, my girlfriend fell in love with it walking through the front door. It feels rustic but with...

Wonderful ambiance; romantic, inviting, and cozy. Lovingly cared for cottage. Loved the tub and our Shipwreck visitors the Stellar Jays -- very entertaining! Bed was a dream. Louise and Sulo were great hosts and ensured our privacy during our stay. Would highly recommend.

Stayed at the shipwreck for 3 nights in October. Perfect location just across from beach, beautifully decorated inside, every little detail is looked after, including q-tips in bathroom. Extremely private spot. The icing on the cake was the outside claw foot tub and shower, added so much to the outdoor west coast experience. We would absolutely recommend this place. Sandra...

We stayed at the Haidaway Cottage in September and had a perfect vacation in Tofino. The cottage was exactly as advertised with everything you could ever need. The location is incredible. It was a quick 5 minute drive into town but quiet and peaceful to wind down and relax. We went for daily walks on Chesterman Beach; I don't think...

The shipwreck cabin is perfect in every way! Great for unwinding and forgetting about the stresses of life. It was close to town and the beach. The outdoor claw foot tub is perfect for relaxing on a chilly evening. I loved falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. Beautiful gem!

It was my first visit to Gold Coast Retreat and we stayed at "The Shipwreck. " it was perfect! Totally Tofino Style, we came to relax and surf and we stayed at the perfect place to do that. It was tucked away amongst the cedars and ferns, you walk past the claw foot tub out on the deck which has...

We were lucky to find this beautiful private retreat very close to Chesterman beach. Shipwreck had everything we needed and more including an outdoor shower (great for rinsing off after a morning of SUP surfing), an outdoor bathtub (great to soothe sore muscles) and a fully stocked kitchen. I even found a book to read during our downtime. The owners...
