BRIMAR BED & BREAKFAST, Tofino, BC is a delight! This craftsman styled, newish (1993) beach-house resembles a well-appointed 1910 Victorian family home. It is surrounded by the lush rainforests of South Chesterman Beach. The rooms have spectacular ocean views and are so cozy and beautifully decorated that it made it hard to choose which one was the nicest.

Apparently, the lower front garden was reclaimed from the onslaught of the sea by our host's ingenuity, when he banked up load after load of clumps of beached sea weed, then planted grass on top. That little flat area boasts an outdoor gas heater between its lounge chairs. This might just be the best, private place to sit or hammock on the whole west coast of Vancouver Island! And possibly this is also the spot on the property that filled the criteria when BriMar was selected in the Best Place to Kiss publication!

Thank you Adam and Katie! Any place can have a beautiful setting and be a gorgeous house, but these managers turned our time there into a magnificent experience. They work hard to make this B&B stand out above their competition. Adam, originally from Australia, is a superb host: warm, friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about many things. He always had time for us and we learned much from him. What other host would hug us when it came time to leave?!

They call it "Tofino Time": laid back, restful, timeless in the mist of the ocean's ever pounding surf. My cousin's and my visit was THE BEST of times! We would HIGHLY recommend BriMar B & B!

Room Tip: The living room/dining room with expansive ocean viewing windows, is a fine place to curl up with a...

Just got back from a stop in tofino and there are no words to describe the beauty of the area. We stayed at brimar bed and breakfast and it was just beautiful.The house is right on the ocean and the view is amazing.The loft is so big and you sleep with the sound of the waves lapping on the sand.Waking up is a pleasure. The hosts are so nice and helpful.Thankyou Adam and Cathy for welcoming and taking care of us. If you are into surfing you just walk down and if you just want to walk you have an infinity of sand to walk on and enjoy the beauty of it all.I am sure to be back again to this place.check out the skylight on the bed and tub..I so wanted to stay up gazing at stars all night..

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay for 5 nights, beautiful house in the perfect location, the house is immaculately kept and we were well looked after by our very friendly host. we couldn't be more impressed, it was sad to leave, could have stayed another 5 nights.

Room Tip: the upstairs attic is wonderful and spacious, but the other rooms looked nice too

My bf and I stayed at Brimar last May and without any hesitation we decided to go back this May for our 1 yr anniversary. Breakfast was exceptional with warm muffins, fresh fruits, yogurt, waffles, and pastries.
We stayed in the sunset room for 3 nights. The king-sized bed was very comfortable. We couldn't've slept better after a day of surfing. We can't wait to go back in May and stay in the Loft this time!

Amazing! Adam is a most welcoming and yet unobtrusive host. Our room was immaculate and with the best view of the beach. Luxury accomodation in the loft, and our three days here was perfect. Bed is very comfy, fireplace cozy, deep tub with skylight above is relaxing and nature-like, shower is big enough for two, and lots of water pressure! We loved it all and will be back for long walks on the beach and the big muffins! Thanks again. W & H

Room Tip: Loft is the most romantic.

Had a lovely time at Brimar. Rooms are spacious and clean. The beds are comfortable. And the views from the windows are wonderful. Couldn't ask for a better location for watching the waves and walking the beach. Hosts Adam and Katie were charming.

We absolutely loved staying at the Brimar! The room, the view, and the hosts were amazing! We stayed in the "Loft" room and it was spacious, comfortable, had a comfy four-legged bathtub, and a wood-burning fireplace in the room (with a fresh log in it each day). We loved being able to walk straight onto the beach and watch the tide come in and out from our window. The extra details were nice, like the wine glasses and corkscrew set out on a little table and bathrobes for each of us. The Brimar is a perfect place to have a quiet/relaxing/romantic getaway. The hosts were extremely friendly and very helpful - recommending a perfect hike for the day and great places to eat. I have stayed in other places in Tofino, but I would return to the Brimar for sure!
