Reviewed 12 July 2016 via mobile

What an amazing place for a family vacation! We stayed in the 2 bedroom with private fire pit, and loved every second of it. The rain couldn't even put a damper on our time here. From the cozy cabin, to sitting on the deck watching the bald eagles and seals, to exploring the beach, to roasting marshmallows and making s'mores, it was a family vacation we'll never forget. Thank you Wild Renfrew for the amazing memories!

The cabin was great. Very clean, rustic and obvious attention to detail. Staff were nice and informative. Setting is one of a kind. Docks and a bay on one side, beautiful cove with a fire pit on the beach on the other. Fun pub/restaurant on site and a very short drive to Botanical beach. Beautiful!
If there was a downside, the cabins along the dock aren't very private. (And a hot tub wouldn't hurt)
It was really good and reasonable. We will definitely be back.

Strong points: very clean and well kept. Romantic ambiance. Classy. The board walk was so peacefully close to botanical beach and avatar Grove. Pub food good and kitchen is open fairly late. Locals are friendly and helpful.

This review is as much about Port Renfrew, it's people and warmth as it is about the Sea Side Cottages.
As we came off the trail, moderately dirty and ripe, it was less than two minutes and we were offered a ride into town. The Port Renfrew Hotel and Bar is no more than 100 steps from the Cottages and the Bus Stop that is used by the trail bus to take you back to your car.
We elected for a couple of days in Renfrew, mostly to see the Avatar Grove and to spend more time at Botany Bay. The Cottages are perfect for this plan.

The room is very large, there is a gas fireplace inside and one outside on your patio. There is a small fridge, a microwave and kettle, just in case you want to finish your freeze dried trail food. The bed is delicious and the towels are perfect. OK I know the black and white from on the trail to off, but really this place would have been 4 stars on a car vacation too.
Dinners can be found at the pub and are far more that pub fare. Breakfasts are up the road, 200 meters maybe at the Country Kitchen. Eggs Bennie - superb!

The accommodation and surroundings are just amazing. We stay here at least 3 times a year and have never been disappointed. The cottages are first class, very well appointed, clean and quiet. If you want a getaway into the wild but still like your creature comforts, this is the place to visit.

Husband and I went up for a romantic getaway and it was great. We were even able to bring our dog. First night we got food from the oub and ate in the room to beautiful views and delish seafood chowder.

Bed was extremely comfortable and large. With super comfy pillows. Would have gave 5 stars if the bathroom had a soaker tub. As it was the bathroom was nice but nothing special.

Second night we made our own meal on the cook top and ate on the deck. The rooms were all perfectly decorated and even a puzzle and the game crib is included.

Beautiful cottage and views!
