Location was only a couple minutes drive into Tofino, owners go extra mile to provide you with things to make you stay more enjoyable ( provided us with rubber boots (our sizes) to walk the beaches and explore. rain suits in rooms to use , offered us bikes as well. recommended several activities and hikes to do as well as places to eat. Room was spotless clean bed was comfy.. note no TV in the room which we knew before renting

Stayed in the cedar room. Decor to a high standard with underfloor heating and a very nice bathroom. Very friendly and helpful hosts. There is a pub serving meals (Jamie's) including breakfast a short walk away and Chesterman Beach (very scenic with surfing) also an easy walk. Tofino is a short drive. There is private parking, tea and coffee making facilities and a separate foyer with seating. Highly recommended.

This Guesthouse is a very nice place to stay.
It is very close to the beach and it is very close to the city.
We stayed in the Cedar room and it was very nice. Everything was well prepared, they even had rain boots and rain coats ready for us.
Unfortunately we were not so lucky with the weather but there were lots of things to do. Bobbi and Jay recommended us lots of restaurants and things to do during the rainy weather.
I believe this location must be beautiful in the summer time as well!
Don't hesitate to book it - you will have a wonderful time here.

Room Tip: If you don't mind not having a TV and kitchen take the Cedar room - it is very cosy!!

We stayed in the Cedar room for two nights which is in a annexe attached to the main house. It was spotless and tastefully decorated with lovely touches everywhere. The bathroom was lovely, heaps nicer than many hotels. The house is situated on an inlet and there is a small deck with comfortable chairs you can relax in and take in the incredible view. I could have spent days there easily. I would have no hesitation recommending this lovely place to stay, perfect for a couple. There is a larger room upstairs I believe but we were very happy indeed with our adorable little place. The hosts were very easy to deal with and provided heaps of information on getting there, the area in general and what to do and where to eat as well. Excellent value.
