More about Chesterman Beach Bed and Breakfast
I stayed at Chesterman Beach B&B for only a few days but the whole time I was there I was planning my next trip to this wonderful place! My suite, the Ocean Breeze, was just a few steps from one of the prettiest beaches I have ever seen -- there was a fully stocked kitchen, lots of books -- a perfect getaway! The weather was fully cooperative the entire time I was there, cool sunny days and lovely breezes. The grounds of the inn are beautiful, tended but with a slightly overgrown look that gives a sense of a natural landscape.
Todd and Lynda are superb hosts and the magic is in their wonderful hospitality and attention to detail -- nothing was missed! I'm so looking forward to my next trip which will hopefully be a little longer!
Chesterman Beach B&B rocks!
We recently returned from a visit to Tofino and the Chesterman Beach B&B.From the moment we arrived it felt like home.We stayed in the Garden Cottage which was very private,cozy,and had all the ammenities one needs.Having made friends with the other guests,I can say the other rooms were equally spectacular with gorgeous views of the beach and the continual sounds of the rolling waves.Lynda and Todd were supreme hosts,making available bicycles,kayaks,surfboards,and giving us many excellent tips on where to go and what to do. So,if you're interested in fantastic food/wine,adventures such as whale-watching,bear-watching,canoing/kayaking,and meeting great people,go to Tofino and stay at the Chesterman Beach B&B! Thanks again Lynda and Todd-see you next year!
Gets better every time
Chesterman Beach B&B could trade on its location alone, (the short garden path ending on the beach) or it could trade on its accommodation alone (exquisitely designed, decorated and stocked with everything one requires.) However, because neither the view outside or the comfort inside lets it down I cannot recommend this B&B highly enough.
Tofino has plenty to do all year round and Chesterman Beach is no exception. We have stayed here 3 times in the last 6 months, catching the end of the (warmer) surfing season in September and more recently enjoying the 'Storm Watching' season. With unimpeded views of the Pacific from the Ocean Breeze suite we were in, the storms were spectacular. It is, in fact, all too tempting to stay inside and enjoy some quiescent time, reading next to the fire or drinking beer in the sauna.
The rooms are spotless and the hosts are warm, professional and helpful.
All in all, not much could be better and our love for the place has only deepened over the visits. (Zac Crawford, Ireland)
Chesterman Beach B&B is a superb accommodation carefully designed to soothe and pamper the soul. Our room (The Lookout Room) was immaculate and beautifully furnished with careful attention to detail. The accommodation was nestled in lush greenery and included a serene ocean view with a private deck. Breakfasts were gourmet, nutritious, and beautifully presented. The setting itself is spectacular as Chesterman Beach boasts an idyllic setting of rugged islands, silky sand and endless rolling waves. Todd and Lynda are VERY warm and gracious hosts. They’re generous, knowledgeable and eager to maximize the comfort of your stay. We’d highly recommend this enchanting B&B to those who are looking for quality, exceptional service and a most memorable getaway.
Nature at It's Finest!!
From the time you drive into the property a Magical feeling starts to envelope you.
Todd & Lynda have lovingly developed their B&B into a fantastic Nature Retreat.
This was our first visit to the Chesterman B&B with my sister and brother-in-law. We stayed in the Ocean Breeze Suite which is perfectly suited for couples to share or a family vacation. The Suite is beautifully appointed with the attention to details no matter how small and the decor works in harmony with the natural surroundings.
To hear and see crashing waves only a few steps away from your patio is simply Amazing!! You can't help but be left with goosebumps and a greater appreciation for our environment.
Todd & Lynda are a wealth of knowledge when it comes to local activities or amenities that you might want to experience and they are only to happy to help at the drop of a hat.
With the recent addition of a new family member for Todd & Lynda, new puppy Murphy is the perfect "icing" on the cake.
Surf boards, kayaks and beach games are available for your use while you stay at the B&B.
Make use of the fully stocked kitchen where you can be as gourmet as you want or there are plenty of dining choices in the area.
To have a B&B located right on the beach is a special treat indeed. I look forward to a return visit and encourage you to give yourself a "Vacation of a Lifetime" real soon.
surf & sand 10 steps away!
surf and sand is only 10 steps away! This was our second visit to this B&B(that says it all right there!), and we were wowed by the wonderful new suede and leather furniture, and the fluffy white robes Todd and Lynda have added for their guests comfort. We stayed in the totally private ocean breeze suite, with a kitchen and sauna and 2 bedrooms and a sun room, and your own private deck, to relax and watch the surfers and the eagles!
Most of the other B&B's in tofino are on the inlet side or on the other side of the beach road, no comparison to our view, on the best side of Tofino! Todd and Lynda are more than willing to help you find the perfect vacation activity, like whale watching, fishing charters, spa treatments, fine dining etc, and with their many connections with the locals, they know what they are talking about! We also toured the newly renovated garden cottage, very beautiful and private, and maybe 20 steps to the ocean. Both units are a perfect getaway for familes or couples, as you won't feel crowded. The lookout suite would be perfect for the romantic getaway, and what I especially like about this property, is how each unit have their own private entrances, and they are all quite separate, so it's like your own mini home on the beach! If you want to truly chill and relax and be surrounded by nature, this is a perfect getaway!
Lookout Suite is a perfect retreat
WOW... what a great place to get away and relax. My friend Christine and I stayed in The Lookout suite and we will definitely be back. This is the perfect place to retreat and spend some alone time with someone special. This room could not be more cozy or inviting. Chesterman Beach and the Pacific are at your doorstep and Tofino is a five minute drive away. Todd, Lynda, their cat and new puppy Murphy are terrific hosts. Don't hesitate. While in Tofino I would also recommend any adventure with Remote Passages and the Raincoast Cafe for dinner or lunch.

everything i was looking for and more
when my girlfriend decided to come out for a visit from ontario i knew a girl's wknd in tofino was definately going to be in order. tofino is pretty much her favourite place on the planet and we hadn't seen each other in over 6 years so i was looking for somewhere right on the water that was luxurious and restful where we could spend a couple of days pampering ourselves and catching up. i chose this b&b after a lot of research and i think i only found 1 bad review. they were quite the opposite. so when i booked the room (the ocean breeze) my expectations were very high. todd and linda and their incredible b&b still managed to exceed them.
the whole place has recently been revamped so everything was much more modern than the images i'd seen (i believe their website has since been updated). it's very beautiful and is full of comfy furniture to read in or to just sit and listen to the crashing waves, which is what we did in the sunroom shortly after arriving. the breakfasts were delicious and stunningly presented. the view was absolutely unbeatable. all the touristy thngs i thought we might do while in tofino fell to the wayside in lieu of just being in our perfect b&b.
the second morning we were there our breakfast arrived with a snapshot of my friend and i playing in the surf the day before. linda had noticed us out there and took a few shots to surprise us with!! it's that kind of attention to detail that made this place so outstanding.
the next morning, checking out, i told todd and linda how much i DID NOT want to go and todd told me it was empty that night. if i wanted to stay he'd let us for a much reduced rate. so, of course, we did. one more perfect day on chesterman beach.
chesterman beach b&b is a luxurious spot where you still feel comfortable in sandals. todd and linda (and their new puppy murphy) made our stay absolutely unforgettable. i can't reccommend it highly enough.
Perfect Tofino B&B
My husband and I visit a different B&B, cabin or hotel in Tofino every May long weekend. This year, we stayed at the Chesterman Beach B&B on the recommendation of a friend. We stayed in the Ocean Breeze suite.
The suite itself was perfect. You couldn't get closer to the beach. It rained for the first day and a half so we spent the time on the couches in the heated sunroom listening to the rain and watching the waves and the surfers on the beach.
Everything at this place - the raingear they provide, the beautiful private outdoor seating area, the tofino restaurant and recreation suggestions, the cupboard full of games and puzzles - is very well thought out.
The breakfasts were great - very well presented, delicious and with great attention to detail.
Todd & Lynda are the kind of people you want to have a beer with and their dog Murphy is adorable. We HIGHLY recommend this place.
Right on the beach
A delightful stay; right on the beach. We had the cottage & everything was splendid - though we rather regret not seeing bears in the garden - perhaps just as well. Magnificent scenery & hospitality, plus wonderful breakfasts. Todd & Lynda were excellent hosts & booked us tables at 2 excellent lodges for dinner - Long Beach Lodge & Wickaninnish - great food with great views of beach & sea. Quite a change from our Herefordshire, England scenery. We are a bit too old for kite surfing etc, but even so, it was a delightful full days & we can understand why this B&B gets such great reviews.
