“A room with a view to Paradise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2009

My son and I just had a little mini break with a couple of nights at The Terrace Beach Resort during spring break. It's a beautiful little resort with cabins built among the trees all joined together by a meandering boardwalk but when you enter your cabin you have the most beautiful view of the water. The cabin we had was like a pretty little home with everything you would need, fridge, 2 burner cooker, microwave toaster etc.. The living area had a beautiful leather couch that folded out to a bed .Upstairs was like a loft with a big comfy bed and a humungous jacuzzi tub that looked out over the water. There were candles everywhere for a nice romantic touch.
We went on a hike around the waters edge to the lighthouse and again the trail was partly through the forest on a boardwalk trail and ended up right back at the resort. Saw lots of wildlife and there is an eagle nest in a tree right outside the office check in!

We arrived Dec 19/08 and stayed until Dec 22/08. Vancouver Island was being hit hard by a snowfall. Driving through Nanaimo was hairy at points and we considered turning back … But so glad we didn’t. Once we arrived and walked up some stairs (there is a ramp) it was breath taking. The reason for the stairs is that you are high enough to see through the trees and view the ocean. Margie explained coffee, hot chocolate, sugar and powered milk are free and the board games and DVDs can be borrowed. Nice surprise. We walked into #27 storm watcher. Two floors, Jacuzzi tub in each bathroom (two). Shower, kitchen supplies, garbage bags, hot tub, and the electric fire place was on-warming the whole cabin. We fired up the BBQ both nights, listened to music, watch the bald eagles, walked through the snow to the lighthouse, hand fed a Stellar Blue Jay and not to mention had some drinks in the hot tub. The sectional couch was a nice surprise and the beds were very comfortable. The cabin also had alarm clocks and if you do not watch cable you can view the inner harbour or Ucluelet light house. We met Lorne and Norma Priestley and they were so hospitable. In fact, we needed chains for our tires and Lorne drove us to town, waited for us. Ian the “handy man” tried to help us get our car out of the parking lot and was “on watch” for other vehicles. We felt like such family. I called them once we made it back to Victoria to let them know we had arrived safely. But don’t get the idea they are around you all the time.. No, I went looking for them to talk to them!! The pictures make the resort seem a bit like the Ewok Village but that’s not the case. You cannot see into other people’s places. If someone was walking in the forest and wanted to look onto your deck while your in the hot tub. Whatever. You are in the forest. The beach access was right there, the trails were great. I just cannot get over how friendly they are! My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed it. On Sunday he did get to watch his football and I got to Jacuzzi (it can fit two people-wink).

This was the third time my husband and I had been to Ucluelet for an extended weekend in the late fall/early winter in the past four years, but the first time we stayed at the Terrace Beach Resort.
It took a little doing to find the registration office (not the Terrace Beach Cabins, we learned) which is way up a flight of wooden stairs. In fact, our place was way up a flight of wooden stairs and we were a little taken aback because we had to make three trips with luggage, coolers, dog stuff, etc. But that was the last of any "concerns" we had. We LOVED the place!
It's rustic and perfect for its location. We had a loft bedroom, a heat-throwing electric fireplace, good gas BBQ, private hot tub on the deck, and enough kitchen stuff to cover all our needs. November was also "dogs stay free" month so that was a nice bonus! And they are set up for dogs - there are dog towels and a wash area outside the apartment doors and we used it several times after beach and trail walks. Even though we didn't use them, the office offered free DVDs and free books to use while staying there.
The sheets were heavenly, the furniture comfy and the price very good. Location is great - out the back and you're on the excellent Wild Pacific Trail, and easy walking distance to Amphritite Lighthouse. We would definitely stay there again. And likely will!

  • Liked — Location, decor, amenities, dogs accommodated well, price
  • Disliked — Stairs to the units, no oven in the kitchen other than microwave and stove top, no roof over hot tub area in case of rain or snow

Just got back from staying at Terrace Beach resort with five other friends and had an amazing time. The cabin we stayed in (#25 Hummingbird) was newly furnished and spacious. It easily accomodated six of us and was cozy and comfortable at the same time. Both nights we BBQ'd fresh seafood and soaked in the hot tub while listening to the surf splash on the beach.
We were able to spend one full day surfing together - which was awesome! It was so nice being able to come back to our cabin and soak in the hot tub after a long day in the ocean.
Another site we enjoyed was walking the 30 mins to ucuelet lighthouse from the resort's beach. The open ocean pounded the shore and we took pictures of each other in front of the lighthouse and then beach combed the beaches. It was fantastic!
Their web site was super helpful in showing what each cabin/room looks like and the service I received when I called the resort was professional and nice. I would HIGHLY recommend people to visit- it's great for all ages and is such a tranquil place to stay.

We stayed here in July for our 10th wedding anniversary. We stayed in the sandpiper which was very large for 2 people and had everything we needed. We asked for a tour of one of the cabins as we want to go back there with our kids (aged 3 and 5). The cabins looked stunning. When we go back we will definitely stay in the cabins (if you go between sept and june, the rates are very reasonable). The entire complex is located in a quiet bay and you can easily drive to anywhere. There is a nice walk you can do to the lighthouse from the complex.

  • Liked — The location/views.
  • Disliked — It would be nice if the patio was bigger.

What a wonderful place. The past three winters we have taken a caribbean vacation but this year, due to two out of three children in university and timing, we decided to stay closer to home. We found the resort through it's web site and decided to give it a try, besides the fact that our youngest daughter insisted we stay here, she's a huge 90210 fan!
What we were looking for was a quiet cabin on the ocean and what we got was exactly that. After the beautiful drive from Nanaimo to Ucluelet, it felt good to walk into a lovely cabin,Morning Mist #2, with incredible view and an inviting hot tub. The beach was full of wonderful surprises, star fish and such, and the sunset was breathtaking. The kitchenette is loaded with everything needed to cook and the little extra details (candles everywhere)
made it a very romantic settting.
We enjoyed the Wild Pacific Trail to the lighthouse and watching the waves slamming against the rocks was incredible. The rain forest trail in the Pacific Rim National Park was unbelievable as well as Long Beach, and the other trails in the park. It is a great place to explore.
We loved being able to cook our own meals so as to be able to eat on our time table however we did have a delicious meal at the Boat Basin restaurant in town.
The best part of the trip was relaxing in the hot tub while listening to the waves of the ocean, the eagles and ducks and gulls,especially after hiking all day in the rain.
Thanks to Lorne and Rosie for the tour and to all the staff for making this a wonderful holiday. We will definaltely be returning.

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our holiday in Canada. We did not want to leave. The 3 story accomodation is comfortable, clean and very cozy.
The views are amazing and we really enjoyed sitting on the beach watching the sun set.
We used the BBQ and there is a supermarket in Ucluelet which has everything you need.
It is essentil you do the short walk to the lighthouse again the views are breath taking.
We would love to go back and stay for longer.
