Steller's Jay retreat Reviews

This is an amazing place for a family holiday in a wonderful location close to the beach. We enjoyed the deck and hot tub and also the cosy snug. We had a great night's sleep there and even spotted a Stellars Jay who visited in the mornings. The house had everything we needed for our first stay in Tofino.
★★★★★
The house has a great location close to the beach, and also has plenty of space downstairs for a family group, with separate dining and TV/reading areas. And there's the added bonus of being walking distance from the famous Tacofino van!
★★★★★
Beautiful home in a quiet yet walkable location to the beach and shops! Would definitely recommend to others and plan to return on a future trip to Tofino!
