Charlie was a fantastic host. Very accommodating, yet respectful of privacy. The rental was extremely clean and well equipped for a short term getaway. The private hot tub was relaxing and perfectly placed with a spectacular view. Charlie leaves a very tasty breakfast outside our private entrance for us to enjoy whenever we feel fit. I would highly recommend this... More

We absolutely loved our time staying with Charlie. We aren't big 'B&B' people typically however I think Charlie's has opened us up to the idea. We stayed two nights in the larger unit with full kitchen and one night in the slightly smaller, just as cozy unit. Both had super comfortable beds, and amazing views of the sound. Sitting in...

We stayed for 2 nights in July 2016 and what a magical place Meares Retreat is with uninterrupted views over the bay and Meares Island. So quiet and peaceful. Charlie the host makes the stay complete. Our suite was clean and had everything we needed including a fully equipped kitchen plus the added bonus of a private hot tub. The... More

Meare's Retreat provides a million dollar view overlooking an arm of the sea and the misty mountains of the west coast of Vancouver Island. Our spacious ocean view suite came with a full kitchen, huge windows that provide maximum... More

Quiet, serene, and peaceful. Charlie was the best host and so laid back. Beach and town is super close (walking distance). We were even visited by a couple weasels in the morning we left. Will definitely be coming back to this little slice of paradise!!

What a beautiful place for a romantic stay in Tofino. Charlie is the consummate host, with a lifelong knowledge of Tofino and the surrounding area. The suite was so clean and tidy we asked who he had as cleaning staff :) The view overlooking the bay and Meares Island never gets old, rain or shine it's beautiful. It was my... More

Our Birthday celebration spent together here at Meares Retreat was much more than we could have imagined! We turned 70, 50, 40, and sweet sixteen collectively. Impeccably clean, thoughtfully detailed, and just a stones throw from downtown made walking the logical choice. Thank you Charlie!

We had a billing problem, due to an error on the owners part, and it was a huge hassle. We ended up having to cancel a credit card account we'd had for 25 years. Otherwise I would have given it a 4.5. Walk to town, great view, advice on where to go and what to do, good breakfast, nice rooms.... More
