“Only wish we could have stayed longer.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Our family of 4 stayed at the Sea Star a recent cabin acquisition next door to the bed and bed breakfast.

AMAZING. The cabin has everything you need and more. Todd and Lynda are excellent hosts.

You won't find a better location and you won't be disappointed.

Todd and Lynda, Thank you so much for sharing your paradise with us.

We found this resort-like lodging on Tripadvisor and very happy with our choice. The family that runs the resort are retired and obviously spend their time providing wonderful accommodations in the 3 well appointed suites. Ours was a large ground floor suite with private garden and patio, complete with Jacuzzi tub, queen poster bed, kitchen, gas fireplace and LCD TV.The unit comes with washer and dryer, terry robes and plenty of towels. We were across the road from Chesterman beach and a 5 minute drive from Tofino. We enjoyed our four days and would surely come back.

Room Tip: Ground floor at the rear is closet to the hot tub.

Just happened on sea Star by accident! So glad we did. We stayed in the Studio and loved it. Extremely comfy and perfect for two. A bit different the way it is laid out but very thoughtfully done. Clean, private and very close to the beach and Tofino. Great hosts, although you never see them if you don't want to? Well stocked little kitchenette and lovely soaker tub. We'll be back.

Room Tip: For a romantic time choose the Studio! Small and compact but everything you need.

It was our first time in Tofino, and the Sea Star was a great place to call home base! Our suite was very comfy-cosy and Rod and Kelly let us enjoy the peace and serenity of our trip, yet were right there when we had questions. Rod is a fountain of knowledge of the area and sent us to some beautiful places we otherwise would have missed. Its a short walk to the beach across the road, yet you're tucked in the trees with lots of birds. The back yard is lovely with a big hot tub, BBQ and chairs, and the suite has wonderful beds, cosy duvets, lovely pillows all making for a great night's sleep. Fully kitted kitchen, big screen TV and blueray DVD player, fireplace with a cozy sofa in front of it, its just the greatest place! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for a comfy, relaxed place to call home for a while.

Room Tip: In the Main Suite there was some noise transfer from the suite above us when they showered early in...

Stayed 4 nights, great location closer to Tofino, but well within an easy ride to Ucluelet, as well as the Pacific Rim Park. The suite was spacious and clean and the amenities (washer & dryer, hot tub just outside the front door, the BBQ grill, etc.) were a nice touch. That said, a full size stove, instead of the two burner hot plate, would have been the "cherry on the sundae."

About the only negative I'd give is the noise level when the suite upstair was occupied. Fortunately, that suite was only used on that one night.

We stayed here after seeing positive reviews and feedback from friends. The location is great-across from North Chesterman. The suite is spacious and had everything we needed.The poor for cleanliness is not due to actual housekeeping, as the suite was tidy and clean, but due to an odor of mould/mildew. Nobody else has mentioned this on reviews and the owner was surprised and accommodating- offered for us to stay somewhere else and to give our money back if we were too uncomfortable to stay. We stayed, but experienced allergies that I have only felt cleaning my grandparents basement.
