We were lucky enough to spend 3 nights at Gull Cottage, and I could not recommend it more highly; the position just across from Chesterman Beach, is perfect, the beach was almost deserted early morning and late afternoon; Robin and Duncan are friendly outgoing hosts who obviously enjoy meeting their guests and show a keen interest in finding out about...

The location is great: just across the street from the access to Chesterman beach. The property is nicely secluded from the neighbours and the street, clean and modern. You have to see, smell, then eat breakfast to truly appreciate Duncan's culinary skills while Robin is the perfect hostess. Two comfortable sitting rooms have books shelved everywhere and cover a wide... More

We recently stayed 2 nights in Tofino at Gull Cottage. Steps from the beach, great location for Chesterman Beach and the evening sunset. Breakfasts were very filling and our hosts were kind enough to accommodate our schedule. Amble parking and nice and quiet at night, you could even hear the ocean with the windows open. Duncan and Robin were very... More

Had a wonderful time in Gull Cottage over Easter weekend. Beautiful home, delicious breakfast and friendly, helpful hosts who helped us get the most out of our first trip to Tofino with all their advice. Would love to go back.

Gull Cottage was by far one of the nicest places my mum and I stayed in on our travel to Vancouver Island in August 2014. You get there and instantly feel at home as the hosts are very warm and welcoming. The beach is only a few steps away. Beautiful sights, long walks... The rooms are lovely and have an... More

We stayed 5 nights at Gull Cottage (Vancouver Island), the Location very close to the Pacific is perfect, same for the rooms and the 'every day changing hot breakfast' done by Duncan and Robin. The rooms are very comfortable and Robin's restaurant and 'nature wildlife' suggestions are most useful.

My wife and I found Gull Cottage to be the perfect place to stay in Tofino. You couldn't get any closer to the beach (the path was directly across the street!), yet it had the privacy and serenity of being surrounded by old growth forest. While it was a short drive from downtown, it was an easy walk to Tacofino,... More

My daughter and I really appreciated the information provided to us by the hostess regarding local attractions and restaurants. We also enjoyed their canine hosts as well! We are happy to recommend Gull Cottage to any visitors that enjoy beach-combing, great food and comfortable rooms.
