I loved everything about this place. 3 of us stayed in the waterfront cabin with the loft bedroom. Very clean and fully supplied kitchen. There is also a wood burning stove that kept the place heated all night long. Quiet and secluded, it was heaven.

If you book the cabin with a loft the location overlooks a quiet inlet with an abandoned fish plant, and there is no other people, boats, traffic noise or none-nature disturbances, although the crows are a little noisy. Perfect setup with a kitchenette, barbecue on the deck and two separate sleeping areas. Clean and cozy with a wood burning stove...

We stayed in this lovely, enchanted little cabin (the smaller shore cabin) for four nights and did not want to leave. The cabin is super-comfortable, the bed is hypnotic and everything you may possibly need in addition to the view is provided for. Would love to return one day. Our hosts were lovely and kind, too.

We've stayed in the tiny Shore Cottage for 3 nights and didn't regret our decision to stay here for a second. Yes, its very small, but impeccably clean, very cozy, with all the necessaries available, including comfy bed, smartly utilized space to store your staff, clean bathroom, free parking, BBQ outside, a little deck for al fresco dinning and unique...

We were here only for 1 night unfortunately, but we enjoyed our stay. It is in a quiet location near the wild pacific trail and very private. The memory foam bed was super comfortable, not soft at all like another reviewer mentioned. Ucluelet is a great base for exploring Tofino and Pacific Rim national park. Wish we could have stayed...

We came to Ucluelet to elope and rented this cottage for a week. The wedding was beautiful, the cottage just as much. It was secluded with a beautiful little bay all to yourself. We saw two baby bears, tons of birds, a deer and other wild life right off the porch. It was so amazing seeing the tide come in...

We stayed here for 3 nights in the 3 rd week of April 2013. The cabin had an almost panoramic view of the tidal river and was tucked away in trees. Just perfect! We were thrilled to hear wolves in the area as the moon came up. The position is perfect to explore the walking trails which are across the...

Never usually bother writing reviews, but had to for this place because we thought it was fantastic. Has to be the best value accommodation in the area, really secluded, special location on the inlet. Earlier reviewers thinking it was by the ocean just hadn't done their homework. The tidal waters are partly what makes it special - wildlife is attracted...

Steve and Julie are both wonderful and considerate hosts; e.g. gave us a Parks pass and boiled crab for us, etc. Delicious cedar cabin smell at the Shore Cabin, nice layout, amenities as well as decor. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for just what they are sharing; a rented cabin with friends, both central and secluded. Thanks you...
