What a treasure. The room was perfect. Lots of space for a family of five, plus a kitchenette. Bonnie was a delight. The lodge is beautiful. Kids ran on the beach, played board games in the lodge and had a blast.

Just the right place to see an eagle and enjoy a foggy and cosy atmosphere. Never slept closer to the water before, the ocean woke us up in the morning! The 'housemother' was like a mother to us and we almost cried leaving this place.

Rode here on our bicycles as part of a bike tour of Vancouver Island. Had made a reservation and was greeted by the very friendly owner upon our arrival. He looked after all our needs, and made us feel right at home, giving us an excellent recommendation for dinner. Not sure we will be coming through this area again, but...

Located right on the beach in Port Renfrew this property has a great view of the bay and beach. We watched 9 eagles land on the fronting sand bar one morning. Rooms are small but comfortable with ours having a queen bed. Our shower was tight and water pressure in the morning was low. Rooms are quiet even with several...

Rob S, Owner at Big Fish Lodge, responded to this review

It's great to hear that you enjoyed Port Renfrew and the Big Fish Lodge. It's too bad that the fishermen that were there had left a mess for you. Since our guests are encouraged to use our kitchen, sometimes guests are not completely mindful of the mess they left behind. Our hosts will always try their best to clean up...

Tried to book at Big Fish Lodge, but it was taken. It was our first trip to Port Renfrew and we were checking out future options so we stopped by to take a look. Very welcoming and helpful staff and a beautiful common area with pool table, couches, view of the water, and telescope, etc. We peaked in a room...

Best combination of relaxation and adventure! The Big Fish Lodge is an absolute gem, tucked away on the best ocean-front/beach-front in Port Renfrew. The rooms are clean, with fantastic views, new bathrooms and very comfy beds. I just came back from a guys-trip with 4 of my buddies. It was so nice to relax in the spacious living room, outside...

Visited with my business partners/friends in June 2014. I HIGHLY recommend Big Fish Lodge to anyone who wants to experience the best the West Coast has to offer- ocean-front beauty, clean/comfy rooms, incredible hosts, delicious local fresh seafood, right next to the famous West Coast Trail head, and access to fishing tours within walking distance. World class hosts and the...

We are from Toronto, uber urbanites. Being on the beach, listening to the ocean waves outside our bedroom was heaven. The place is simple, laid-back, like visiting family, where you do your own dishes. Our " beach view" room was the best, 2nd floor, patio doors to,a small balcony. I would highly recommend the lodge for a family and/or large...

Location: Right on the beach, this is a perfect get away. We had a rainy foggy sort of weekend, really the best kind to experience the Westcoast. Very picturesque drive. Close to Avatar Grove, and Botanical Beach Provincial Park. Accommodations: You can look at the pictures online on the lodge website, but really don't fuss over which room you would...
