Very good 8.0
Good place to stay at but stinky
We had a good time at the cabin but there was a really bad smell coming out of the kitchen or bedroom, difficult to tell. We also did not find the place to be well maintained. Check in at 4:30pm is a bit too late compared to other places we stay at. Other than that, really quiet and relaxing setting.

The cabin looks rustic on the outside, which I like, with a hardy west coast garden. Inside there are well thought out upgrades in the kitchen, bathroom, electronics that give it a luxury feel on the inside.

My husband & I chose this property because we wanted our own space considering COVID... we absolutely loved this quaint little cabin.The location was excellent, literally 1 min walk to South Chesterman Beach where we enjoyed long walks, bike rides & campfires on the beach; easy bike ride along the amazing bike trail into Tofino. Cabin was very clean, well equipped kitchen, fire pit & even came with chickens that run around freely! Highly recommend this property, we will definitely book this place again!

Over all it was good except the back stairs was unsafe, plants stem is sprout out from the gap of the stairs. The location to the beach is excellent

We love staying here. Perfect for a couple or small family of three. We love that it is private right across the beach and you have all that you need when it comes to feeling like you are at home.

Nice place, conveniently located.
This was a nice quaint place. A little on the old fashion side decor wise. The kitchen was stocked with about 3 or 4 pots, and two pans, some baking dishes, collander, toaster; and glasses, cups, bowls, and plates for four. The queen bed was comfortable, but I would not recommend using the folding bed, it gives no support. Aside from the little bed issue, it was clean, and conveniently located across from a major beach access.

Want a relaxing vacation -- look elsewhere!
Mistakes happen... It all depends on how you handle them. We wouldn't wish that others experience the UNPROFESSIONAL, INCONSIDERATE manner staff handled their mistakes during our stay. After a 7 hour drive we looked forward to finally relaxing. Motel staff that manages these properties gave us the address and the keys. They did not mention that the property we rented was not visible from the parking area. Instead they provided us a key to the wrong property that WAS near parking and showcased on our reservation! We unpacked even though it was not at all what we expected. After a couple hours, we found the cabin we had actually rented behind a dense hedge. We had to convince staff a mistake had been made. They wanted us to drive 7 km back to town to get the right key but later agreed to have staff come for the key swap. Rather than enjoy the sunset on the beach we repacked, moved and unpacked..a disastrous first evening and restless first night. Motel staff apologized for their mistakes and gave a nominal rate reduction but stated it was largely our fault for not immediately realizing that they had given us the wrong key! For those of us renting 10+ properties a year-totally unrealistic! Had we not realized their error in just 2 hours, it would have taken them 2 days to realize the same error when the other guests arrived... A potentially awkward, unpleasant experience was avoided. Lots of great properties in the area... Do yourself a favour and choose another one!
