    We really enjoyed our stay here. The location was nice, within walking distance of everything in town. And we were surprised how close the beaches were. Thanks guys, hope to see you again next year!

    We stayed over Easter long-weekend and had an absolutely amazing time. It was so nice to come back from an afternoon at the beach and relax with the spectacular view. It was clean and comfortable, and the owners were very helpful.

  • Raisa Family

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect, the rooms were clean and well-managed, and the owners were very friendly and helpful. We would be happy to come back and stay again soon.

Wonderful and very relaxing week at Burnside House! The architecture of the house is stunning. The living spaces are... very spacious. We cooked daily in the well-appointed kitchen. We went surfing every day and we loved the outdoor hot shower and hot tub. We visit Tofino every year but this was our first time booking through Stay Tofino. It was super easy with quick reply about our inquiry and clear instructions. We are hoping to come back soon!read more

We immensely enjoyed our stay at the Sun House. What a great place! It had everything we needed and more - great... location, very roomy for our family of 4, and all the things we needed to cook with. It might have been overkill, but there were four TVs, including one in each bedroom and a huge one in the living room. We would love to return someday!read more

Portofino was a perfect little spot right on the water with a gorgeous view. We had everything we needed for our family... of four, and loved exploring the beach at low tide. We were right next to Savary Pie coffee shop, and a short walk to the grocery store, restaurants etc. We would gladly stay here againread more

I had a wonderful stay at Cedar Nook this weekend. The hosts of this property have taken exceptional time to outfit a... complete kitchen that enables you to make your meals at home with the little extras that make home cooking easy. The unit was immaculately clean. The beds were comfortable. It is a short walk into town or short drive to the beach so very centrally located. I would definitely stay here again. If you want a comfortable home away from home then I highly recommend staying at Cedar Nook your next visit to Tofino.read more

This home was absolutely amazing. The location was perfect for walking into town and we even walked to the Tofino... Brewing Co (a couple of kms each way) and back quite easily. Great access to the beaches and went for beautiful runs right from our door. We had a hard time leaving it. The views were absolutely stunning and the home was amazing with Fairmont Hotel level bedding and beds. The home is so cozy and functional and well perfect for our little family getaway. My kids made fun that I loved the kitchen so much I didn't want to leave it. We wished we could have stayed longer and will definitely try to stay in this house again if we ever get back to Tofino. We will always remember Salt and Tofino fondly!read more

I've spent a lot of time in Tofino and the Cozy Curlew (operated through Stay Tofino) is the most beautiful and perfect... place I've stayed. Extremely clean, stylish, warm, and homey, not to mention an incredible "backyard" with a hot tub and outdoor shower surrounded by trees, the Cozy Curlew makes each stay that much better and we will continue to go back to it. There is a full kitchen, fireplace, king size bed, washer/dryer, and even a games cupboard! Zero complaints. Thanks Stay Tofino!read more

Seriously fantastic location. We spent the most wonderful and peaceful Christmas at Serenity. Just a two minute walk... to Chesterman beach. The whole process, check-in, booking etc was seamless. The cabin had everything we needed and more. We even realized my husband forgot his apple watch at the cabin a few weeks after we left, which they located and mailed back to us. I highly recommend Stay Tofino not only for the beautiful cabin but for the integrity of the company as well.read more

Stayed @ Surfwood Hideaway and it was a dream to walk into! The grounds are beautiful and full of greenery, maples,... trees, flowers and lovely birdsong. Easy to use for booking, GREAT communication and reminders etc. Can't say enough about the house we rented, just beautiful and could have easily unpacked and stayed forever! Spacious, full of beautiful features and art work! Despite the rain, the house was warm and welcoming with so much light as the amount of windows was amazing, the layout was great as two families or a two couples could easily make the space work for them. I will definitely book through Stay Tofino again as it made reservations a breeze!read more

We have had five previous stays in Tofino, and for our sixth, stayed at the best of them all! Can't say enough about... Tidal Retreat House in Jensen's Bay. On a quiet street, and a very short walk to Chesterman's Beach, this home is outstanding. Beautifully appointed, our family of 6 had a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend. Everything you need to have large family dinners is available, and in almost brand new condition. Appliances are top of the line, and the house is immaculate. Highly recommend, and this will be our "forever vacation home" from now on!!read more

Booking with Stay Tofino made it easy for us, they gave us all the instructions we needed, self check-in is always a... plus so you can go on your own planning. The property "Cedarwood #1" was clean and well maintained. Bed is comfortable, the high ceiling give you the feeling that the place is wide. You’ve got all you need to cook. The look of a wooden chalet make it look special and you will also get privacy and peace. The location is great, just outside of the village and very close to the beach and the small grocery. Never had any issues in 9 days, had a great time there and will book again with Stay Tofino, they offer so many great options in town and give an excellent service, so you can focus only whats really matter !read more

Re four night vacation rental in Tofino booked with Stay Tofino.We chose to rent Hilltop Guesthouse this past weekend... to celebrate a milestone birthday.Our family of four adults had more than enough room to provide privacy as needed as well as plenty of space to gather and celebrate.The kitchen was well equipped and we were able to effortlessly prepare the bulk of our meals, including Thanksgiving dinner, at home.The walk to town was short which we considered to be of great importance.All pertinent information to navigate the rental was readily available.Dealing with Stay Tofino was simple, straightforward and timely.read more

Tidal Retreat House is beautiful! It has generously sized rooms and loads of windows offering scenic views of the... surrounding beauty. The house offers several siting spaces, both indoor and out. There is a wonderful wrap-around deck off the back of the house with a view that I consider to be an artist's dream. The sauna is a bonus. Communications from StayTofino were clear and regular, but not overwhelming, and provided articulate instructions for gaining access as well as the terms and conditions. My daughter was getting married at Long Beach Lodge Resort, which is a few minute drive from Tidal Retreat House, which provided a wonderful meeting space throughout the weekend. We would love to have enjoyed sitting around a fire in the outdoor fire pit, but a fire ban did not allow that. Nonetheless, we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Tidal Retreat House and would come back to stay in a heartbeat.read more

We were very happy with our Tofino stay. The instructions from Stay Tofino were very clear. The house was amazing. It... was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed or even consider we needed. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking or baking any meal you wanted. The beds were firm with good linens. The whole family enjoyed the great board games available. The house is in a quiet neighborhood that is central to town and the beaches. It was awesome to come home from the beach, rinse off with the outdoor shower and then wash up and relax. Would definitely stay here again.read more

This house is beautiful. The kitchen has absolutely everything you would need and all great quality - so wonderful as... we cooked most of our meals. A lot of thought was put into making the house work for Tofino including an outdoor shower, BBQ and hot tub (essentials for the weather and activities). Very quiet neighbourhood and the beach access is a 2 minute walk away which made our daily trips with kids super easy. Loved itread more

We stayed at the Tidal Retreat House for a week. Not only was the house beautiful, it was beautifully equipped. The... check in and check out procedures were very clear — and there were emails provided a few weeks, a week and then a day or two before the stay to make sure we had all the information we needed. We would happily come back to the property or another Stay Tofino managed home.read more
