Stayed here for a weekend and had a blast! It’s an oceanfront property with breathtaking views and walking distance to coffee shops, bike rentals and surfing shops. The new management and staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Awesome place with a rustic and laid back atmosphere – cant wait to be back!

Stunning location (we stayed right on the beach front). Facilities were very clean. It's only a short journey into the centre of Tofino if you need and food or supplies. Wood for fires is available but you will need an axe to make kindling (or bring your own).

You are right on the beach with a beautiful view when you stay in one of our beach front cabins. You can borrow our axe for chopping some kindling and getting that fire going. So great to hear you enjoyed your stay.

Ideal location and great hosts. Dorothy was a delightful host, friendly, helpful. The cabin spacious and clean, just steps from Mackenzie Beach. Four adults and a dog had restful retreat - well not the dog, he was too excited what with all those open spaces in Tofino.

Yes, it is for sure Dog Heaven here and they do LOVE the beach. We enjoyed having you as our guests and hope you will return to Tofino for another great holiday.

Staff were more than accommodating friendly and overall good people. They actually let us leave our stuff behind the counter after check-out so that we could go surfing again before leaving. 5/5 and will be coming again sometime soon

You had great surfing waves right on MacKenzie Beach the day you were checking out. It was a given you had to get down there and get on your boards one last time before returning them and returning home. Thanks for the great review. Hope to see you again.

Our cabin was spotless, very comfortable, with a kitchen is full of great items. There was even a full ice cube tray in the freezer and freshly cut local foliage in a vase - such nice, personal touches. This resort is rustic but fitting...on a great beach in a convenient location. Staff were genuinely helpful and I am looking forward...

The accommodations are very comfortable. The beach is very beautiful with islands that are within kayaking distance. The Mackenzie Beach Resort is a great base for all your activities in Tofino and Pacific Rim Park.

We stayed at MacKenzie Beach Resort for 3 nights in a Oceanfront cabin and enjoyed our stay specially in the off-season. The Resort is one of the older resorts but it is more a classic stay where you can get the important things. We had a oceanfront cabin and it was a great experience to see the ocean 24 hrs...

What a wonderful, relaxing weekend we had at this resort. The cozy oceanside cabin included clean bathrooms, a kitchen, that was fully stocked, with tools and even a broiling pan! This came in handy when making our breakfast and dinner. The view was gorgeous, inside or outside because the cabin had large windows. The staff were friendly and very helpful...

RELAX you're not on the mainland is what your getaway at our resort is all about. The ocean has such a profound effect on all who can hear or see it and we hope you will find time to return once again for a relaxing getaway.

We stayed at Mckenzie Beach and were pleasantly surprised at the quality and view from cabin #3. It was right on the ocean and were fortunate enough to capture some beautiful sunsets.

Beach front cabins are so close to the ocean you can taste the salt in the air. What a view for sure and am so glad to hear you were able to see some unbelievable sunsets. That are so amazing, especially in the winter months when the sun drops into the water and colors of all kinds change the landscape...

Well, this is perhaps the 6th time my family has stayed at Mackenzie Beach, and once again it is purse heaven. Not chi-chi or fancy, it feels like a classic family summer cottage. The whole place is absolutely comfortable and dog-friendly, with two big cozy couches, a beautiful stone fireplace housing a big wood stove and daily deliveries of firewood....

Return customers are what we are all about as pleasing our guests is top priority for sure. We are dog friendly in most of our cabins and Keira the resort dog is always on hand to meet the new arrivals and explain who is Top Dog in her own calm way. So great to have you come year after year...
