We visited Ucluelet for an anniversary getaway. We stayed in a one bedroom cottage at Reef Point. We liked the location, and the cottages are within walking distance to beaches and trails, which was a plus. We had no view at all from our cottage, but I understand that some of them have forest or inlet views. If a view is important to you, be sure to specify that when booking. The cottage was quite clean. The bed was comfortable, and most of the furniture was simple but nice. The narrow spiral staircase to the loft bedroom was a quaint touch, although impractical - it seemed a bit rickety, and since it was difficult to carry anything up and down the stairs, we left our bags in the living room during our stay. It was also inconvenient to navigate the staircase in the middle of the night to get downstairs to the cottage's only bathroom. All the basics we needed in the kitchen were supplied, and we had no complaints in that area. We appreciated having a dishwasher. It was great having a BBQ on the deck, with easy access to extra propane tanks if we needed them. The staff member at the front desk when we checked in was pleasant (although she didn't offer us any information about the area), and we were able to check in 2 hours early, which we appreciated after a long drive. We did have a few small issues with the cottage. First, the hot tub was on the front deck with absolutely no privacy. Because the cottages are very close together, it's awkward sitting in the hot tub on your front porch a few feet from neighbours sitting in their hot tubs, with people walking up and down the road between the cottages. It was difficult to relax, knowing that your conversation could easily be overheard. The gas fireplace did not work, which was disappointing after a chilly walk on the beach in the rain. Most of the jets in the bath tub did not work. The couch was extremely uncomfortable and the TV was very small. When pulled out the pull-out sofa bed, it had crumbs on it and did not look very clean - nor was it comfortable enough to sleep on. If you are travelling with children or more than two adults, or if you plan on spending much time indoors, the one bedroom cottage may not be the ideal accommodations for you. Our cottage was just fine and we enjoyed our stay, but it certainly wasn't outstanding. This was our first visit to Ucluelet and we don't know how Reef Point Cottages compare to other places in town. Ucluelet is absolutely beautiful. We fell in love with the area and will be returning for another visit later this fall...but we have made reservations to stay elsewhere.
