“Escaping Real Life”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

Nothing could have been more perfect--from the room at the top of the house to being steps from the ocean, I could not have chosen a better option to escape from reality. I found BriMar haphazardly on Trip Advisor and I have to say it exceeded all expectations. The Innkeeper was lovely and welcoming--offering just the right amount of hospitality while providing privacy. Breakfasts were abundant and delicious. The location was ideal for trekking out and exploring. The accommodations are well maintained and the room was beautifully staged. Nothing like a big comfy bed, clawfoot tub, and skylight for stargazing. For my first trip to Tofino, I was blown away and can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Go with the room at the top as it is spectacular--view, bed, tub, wood stove---all of it!

By far the best place to stay!!! Beautiful B&B on the water with incredible views and sandy beaches. We stayed in the sunset room which was spacious with very comfortable beds. The breakfasts were unbelievably delicious and our hostess Paula exceeded all expectation. For anyone considering The Brimar, it definitely will not dissapoint

May be the best B & B we have ever stayed in. Right on the ocean. Very private. Beautiful home. Paula was a ****(4 star) hostess. Very friendly and knowledgeable . Excellent breakfast. Wonderful bedrooms and bedding. Great location for a very relaxing stay. We hope to return someday.

Location, location, location plus comfort and very good breakfast. Brimar is right on the beach, and although seems an old fully refurbished house to most demanding standards, it is actually a new building carefully thought to blend an old style beach home with the requirements of discerning visitors. A bit pricely but worth it.

We would definitely stay here again. The B&B is spotless -- Paula recommended activities and restaurants and even made reservations for us. The view out our Sunset Room window was lovely -- right onto the beach, and to top it all off we were served wonderful breakfasts each morning. What a relaxing place to stay

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in August. We stayed in the Sunset room, which has fantastic views of Chesterman beach. The room is very spacious and has a king bed and a shower. There is no bath in this room, but this did not affect our stay. The property is literally on the beach. The breakfasts are excellent and varied and are eaten in the great room, which is a lovely dining/lounge area. The host Paula is very accommodating and helpful, and nothing is too much trouble for her. She is a definite asset to the place. All in all apart from 2 days of rain we had a fantastic stay, and would go so far to say that it was like being 'home from home'. No hesitation in recommending it and would definitely stay again.

Stayed at the Brimar in 2012, the place is fantastic right on the beach. Hospitality was great and the sound of the waves are so relaxing. 10 out of 10, make sure to visit Tofino and if you are try the Brimar it's an unforgettable experience.
