I have stayed at Terrace Beach twice and enjoyed both times thoroughly. I stayed once a few years ago in January during stormy season. The resort only had one other couple staying there. We had a cabin towards the end of the walkway to ourselves. The first night I fell asleep to the sound of the surf on the bay. The loft bed was so comfortable and the double soaker tub for two was very romantic. The first time we choose not to have a tv or radio. Beach front cabins come with a kitchenette, including a small fridge, stove and microwave.
The second time was in the fall of 2005. We rented a three level, two bedroom beach front cabin with a hot tub. We barely used the hot tub, but we watched movies and played music. The weekend was so relaxing and quiet. We did not want to leave!
Staff was superb and assisted us whenever we needed help.
There are suites, lofts, and beach front cabins for rent. The off season is quite a bit cheaper.
This hostel is in a converted house and although far from new it is very hospitable and welcoming. The kitchen is pretty well-equipped and Marla stays on top of things so it is remarkably clean (if you've stayed in many hostels you know how gross the kitchens can be).
The rooms are spartan and tidy, some of the bunk beds are double beds on the bottom and there are lots of extra blankets. There's a fireplace in the living room and the two full bathrooms are modern and squeaky clean. Little touches like handtowels, soap and lotion in the bathrooms really make you feel like an honoured guest. There is one wonderful private room with a double bed.
The supermarket and the so-called 'centre' of town aren't far away and the surf shop is also close. You're also a short walk away from accessing the network of trails that criss-cross Ucluelet.
This place is just mellow, warm and laid-back. Yet it is clean and neat. None of the sloppy cleaning or shabbiness that is sometimes associated with the casualness of hostels.
