“On the edge of the world...”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

Wow...we just loved this area. First time visit to the peninsula, to Ucluelet and to Majestic Ocean B&B. We enjoyed our stay at Majestic Ocean, Tracy and Ted are great hosts and fun folks. Tracy is a wealth of information. When we checked in, she showed us maps with good places to eat, trails to walk, rain forests to see and beaches to explore. Each morning we walked into the breakfast room for a delicious breakfast and enjoyed the water view. We walked the low tide water line and picked up shells. We regret not taking the time to go out kayaking but that's our loss, make sure you don't make the same mistake! We enjoyed our 3 nights and 2 days here.

A beautiful, quiet, comfortable, friendly spot to stay. We stayed the night before and the night after our kayak trip with Majestic Ocean Kayaking. The delicious breakfast was very welcome both before we left and the morning after our return. The extra touches provided (cookies) made the stay special. Tracy and Ted are great hosts.

Thank you very much for your kind review. It is so great that you stayed with us the night before your kayak trip and the night after your kayak trip, this way we could take good care of your.

We really want people to get the feeling that they will be comfortable and that its a clean and freindly place to stay. You have done that for us and we really appreciate it.

We enjoyed 2 nights and 2 fabulous breakfasts - lots of food and variety! (Tracy kindly shared her recipe for the yummy granola.) The breakfast room was also open anytime for coffee, tea, hot chocolate, etc., and offered games, TV, and WiFi in a comfortable setting. Although it rained during our full day kayak trip, the hot tub welcomed us on our return. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. As we were departing, Tracy sent us off with homemade cookies.

Thank you very much for this lovely review that you have given us. I know it takes a minute to get it done and I have to say it really is a very generous act. I really do enjoy feeding people and you can get recipes off our website too if you like. Glad that you enjoyed our home, Ted and Tracy.

We booked at this B&B to be close to the start for our 4 day kayaking trip. It was so much more than just convenient. Very comfortable, great bathroom and terrific breakfast! Wish we could have stayed longer.

Tracy and Ted made us feel very welcome and organized! Thank you!

Booked for the night before a kayaking trip with Majestic Ocean which made it convenient. Make sure you specify how many beds, as well as people, at reservation and get a written confirmation. Breakfast was very good. Nice hot tub.

Hello Ladies: I appreciate you writing a review for us and giving a few positive notes too. You were really great guests and yes, at check in things were confusing, we did not know that you needed two beds but we sorted it all out as fast as possible. We have 2 rooms that have 2 beds.
Thanks for choosing to visit Majestic. Your hosts Ted and Tracy Eeftink

This was our single night away from camping while we were on the island and I wish we could have stayed longer! Also very nice to get into the hot tub after 3 days of kayaking! Tracy and Ted were Extremely kind and generous hosts and the room and setting were beautiful! This combined with the amazing and ample breakfast makes me wonder why anyone would pass up this gem for the exorbitant prices in Tofino!

Booked as an alternative to staying in Tofino where nothing was available. Glad we did. Great waterfront location, super breakfasts and very friendly hosts and guides. Would definitely stay again if we were in the area.

Room Tip: Found the Roy Henry Vickers room a little tight for space with no real closet space.
