We had the Poolside Suite for 2 weeks and it was wonderful and private. Fran and Robyn are delightful hosts with a huge knowledge base. Enjoyed swimming in the big pool outside our door while looking at the sea and islands. Walk down on the beach was great and we saw our first Sand Dollars. The garden is wonderful with...

We rented the Poolside Suite for the month of April and enjoyed the wonderful water views. The suite offers everything you will need to be comfortable while exploring Chemainus and the rest of The Island. The Hosts were friendly and available to answer any questions or concerns. We highly recommend this B & B.

We stayed in the Poolside Suite with our son. It was very private. We went to the private oyster bay down the hill, swam in the pool, and took in the view. We were offered two options for breakfast, a complete breakfast with eggs etc... or a fresh lighter breakfast. We chose the lighter breakfast. We are vegan and the...

I have been to By the Beach before and when I was desperately in need of a holiday; I decided it was time to visit the "island". Ocean, mountains, beautiful views and serenity is what this B&B has to offer. Chemainus is a quaint little town, their buildings kissed with colorful murals, wonderful coffee and unique gift shops. By the...

We had company from Ontario so booked them into By the Beach in Chemainus. There is so much to do in Chemainus. Our company was greeted warmly by the hosts at the B & B. They loved the room and the view is to die for! Very private with your own living room etc. The breakfast was delicious and the...

I would not stay here. I felt uncomfortable and without going into massive detail, I had the same type of experience as the woman in the last review. They were unfriendly, and because I made my reservation the same night, they said they would have to go out and get groceries for the breakfast portion of my Bed and Breakfast....

First of all, to the reviewer, thank you for drawing to our attention that the photo was not of our B&B. Rest assured it was not posted by us. The situation has been rectified and the photo displayed now, is indeed of By The Beach B&B The rest of the review is indeed very puzzling! Since the request for accommodation...

My husband and I stayed @ By the Beach for 3 days over Christmas. After we returned home I went on Trip Advisor to say what a fantastic stay we had and found a really bad evaluation which was so far from our experience that I called Robyn and Fran to see what was the scoop. It seems that the...

An excellent experience. Fran and Robyn are excellent hosts. The rooms are gorgeous, especially the Loft in which we stayed. The bath in this room has the most wonderful view out over the bay to Thetis Island and the North Shore mountains beyond. The guest sitting room and dining room are comfortably furnished and spacious so you never feel cramped....

We stayed here recently and were told that the cheaper suite was taken and the only one available was the Loft for $160/night. After deciding that was out of out budget, the owner - a nice lady - said we could have it for $110 without breakfast. We took the suite. AFTER sending credit card details she informed me that...

We needed a place to spend the night on our way to Tofino and this was a good choice. Chemainus has its murals, but not much else,and if you want wine with dinner, you might have to drive a bit; still the view of the bay from this B&B is pretty special and, weather permitting, enjoying it from the patio...
