“Loft Suite”
Reviewed 25 March 2012

We've stayed several times at the Sea Star in the past decade. Each time we've enjoyed our stay and found the accommodation completely met our needs.

This trip we stayed in the Loft Suite. There were 3 of us and though the suite can accommodate more, we were very comfortable. The beds were comfortable and had nice comfy duvets on them. The kitchen was well appointed with all the cutlery, utensils and a nice nice Cuisinart coffee maker! The bathroom was recently renovated and has a nice deep tub.

We really enjoy the hot tub while we're there. The temperature is always just right to stay in for a quite a while; not too hot but warm enough to stay in and enjoy a beverage or two.

The location is outstanding. Not on the beach with not on the beach prices, but right across from the public access to Chesterman Beach, the nicest beach around. It is spectacularly quiet at night and one can get a free restful sleep in the Loft Suite.

All in all we always enjoy staying at the Sea Star and enjoy our conversations with Rod and Kelly. It is just the right spot if you don't need to be on the beach and want a spotlessly clean, quiet and comfortable suite for you and your family.

Whilst this is listed as at Chesterman Beach it is interesting to know that it's only a few miles to the village of Tofino which has restarurants/supermarket/hardware store etc.

We wanted a quiet spot to relax. The suite (we rented the Loft) comprised two bedrooms living room, decent bathroom and well equipped kitchen. The unit can actually accommodate 6 but 4 is the ideal number. In the summer you have access to a BBQ and the hot tub is available year round. Very relaxing spot, the beach is across the road. Owners are conscientous but unobtrusive. Wi-fi and TV with many channels available too.
Pacific Rim Park is a drive away but well worth exploring, particularly the rain forest walk. Just be aware that they charge for parking (permit).

The beach is fabulous pay attention to warnings re waves - you'll also see items washing up from the Japan Tsunami - post photo o Tofino website as they're trying to plan for the expected increase in flotsam.

Whilst we couldn't afford to eat at the Wickininish Inn, they were very gracious about setting us up in their outstanding dining room on the rocks (great storm watch spot) for a cuppaccino for two total cost tips and taxes around $14 but well worth the experience. It is an exceptional resort, beautifully maintained and decorated with native art.

Room Tip: Loft is quiet and spacious (doesn't have sloping ceilings is a normal self contained suite but...

We stayed at the Sea Star Beach Retreat in Sept. It was perfect. It was clean and had a kitchen, living room, jacuzzi tub with a shower and a off to the side bedroom and yes a fireplace. The owners welcomed us and then we rarely saw them which was great (gave us our own space). We used the hot tub in the back a couple of times, nice and hot. The price was amazing as we checked every place in town and this was the best deal for the location. If we could have, we would have been there longer...but we will be back! A must stay at!

Reviewed 30 July 2011

We arrived at night, which could have been tricky, but the driving directions on the website were perfect! After a warm reception we were shown our unit (The Main Suite) 2 bedrooms and 2 bath with a large living area with a fireplace and full kitchen. This was ideal for our family of 4. Our 2 grown daughters enjoyed the hot tub and sun deck, as it was chilly at the beach. Chesterman Beach is just a 2 minute walk down the road and through a trail. This was my first time to Tofino and as it turned out this location was everything I hoped for. Long walks on a beautiful beach with shopping, dining, and surfboard rentals a 5 minute drive away.

Reviewed 24 September 2010

We loved our stay at the Sea Star Beach Retreat. The studio we rented was very nice and had everything we needed, and even contained a jacuzzi! The studio was within under 5 minutes walking from the beach where you can see very nice beautiful sunsets. The town of Tofino is just a small 10 minutes by car. We regretted we booked for only two nights, because you can do various nice thins near Tofino.
