Wonderful is how I would describe my vacation at Charlie's bnb. Fantastic time was had by all of us!! The sunset was stunning. The breakfast was fabulous. We loved the hot tub and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay!! We'll definitely be back for another visit to Tofino and Meares retreat!! Thank

My fiancé surprised me with a two night stay last summer (July 2014) at Charlie's fabulous B&B. The views are stunning, breakfast is delicious (all local goods), and Charlie is a wonderful host. Not only did we have a wonderful experience here we also got engaged on the last morning we were there. I could not have pictured a more... More

To top that we were upgraded to the large suite with the best views and private hot tub. Second the breakfast is fabulous, warm... More

We had a 2 week vacation planned and the final destination was Tofino. We ended up booking 2 nights at Meares Retreat to treat ourselves after a few days of camping out on the road and what a nice surprise this was. Make sure you write the directions down before you start you drive over from Nanaimo because there is... More

With my little family we stayed 2 nights in this B&B and it was just perfect. Charlie, the owner, is attentive, discreet and allows you to share his beautiful home with a breathtaking view. Breakfast is all just wonderful. We just regret one thing, not being able to stay longer ... paradise!

I can't honestly review this property because we never got the chance to stay there. After several emails and a phone call, I thought our reservation was confirmed. After a long day of travel we were looking forward to staying at Meares. Imagine our surprise upon our arrival where we learned there was no record of our booking whatsoever, except... More

Went here in July and had an amazing time. Charlie is the perfect host, really friendly and helpful with absolutely everything; he gave us some great tips on what to do in the area.

We couldn't be more impressed by our stay at Meares Retreat, everything was perfect. We stayed in the smaller room, but it was far from small. Both the bedroom and the living room area had large double doors opening up to a private balcony with stunning views of the ocean. In the evening we enjoyed relaxing in the private hot... More
