  • Amazing view and great location close to town!

    "The house is in an incredible location, walking distance to town and Tonquin beach. We were wowed as soon as we walked in by the view from both inside the house and from the deck. Sunsets were incredible and we enjoyed watching the resident bald eagle as he swooped around the property. The beds were comfortable, the hot tub was well used and overall the house was a good deal for the money. The house was clean, well maintained and the property managers were pleasant to deal with. Our only complaint was regarding the kitchen....we as regular renters of vacation properties and "foodies" like to do quite a bit of cooking for ourselves. This kitchen was really not set up for that. The stove was not only very complicated to use, but also didn't work about 80% of the time. The dishwasher was iffy at times, the ice machine in the fridge didn't work, the BBQ not that great and the kitchen wasn't that well stocked with serving dishes. We had arranged for a personal chef (Darcy McBride of Dish Personal Chef Service) to cook for us one night and our meal was almost stymied by the stove quitting on us. Thank goodness for the hot plates we found in a storage closet upstairs. I would recommend putting in a simple "north american" gas stove, a new "north american dishwasher, and stocking the kitchen with some more serving dishes in order to make dining at home an easier experience. If you are planning on eating dinner at restaurants most nights, then this house is a perfect match. We highly recommend the Wolf in the Fog for dinner, Tacofino for lunch and Common Loaf for breakfast. Finally, if you are interested in having someone prepare meals for you, contact Darcy McBride #TofinoDish, our experience was incredible. Overall, I would go back to Pacific Retreat, in fact we plan to in August 2017!"

  • Good for a much needed chill out!

    "We were a group of 6 Brits doing a 3 week tour and the Torino house was always seen as our chance for a chill out! All in all it delivered and was as we expected. What was a bit lacking was a lack of certain kitchen equipment - maybe some extra glasses, small saucepans, a strainer for pasta etc. We reported mugs missing and they were replaced and a lot of light bulbs were missing as well. I believe that the owners were having a few problems and were not aware of some of the things that were missing and we were given a small refund which was a nice gesture. Thank you. Maybe leave a check list so we know what we should have and then we could have let you know straight away what was missing? The hot tub is just that - lovely and hot and the house is plenty big enough for 6 adults. It is 3 double rooms and a huge living room and large BBQ. Not much is within walking distance so a car is a must but the area is a delight! All in all a few minus points but on the whole it gets a thumbs up from us!"

  • The BEST!

    "We cannot say enough about this place! Beautifully kept, outstanding view, lovely homeowners, easy access. And a great price for the value. I even left behind some cosmetics and Donna, the homeowner, is shipping them to me! We will definitely be returning."

  • All-round terrific experience

    "We stayed four nights in the studio and found it to be just perfect for our needs as a couple traveling on our own. The studio was very well-appointed including a comfy bed, big couch (love the massive ottoman) and well-equipped kitchen which I did cook in on three of the nights we were there. I'm an avid home cook and I found everything I needed to make a nice meal. The owner was very kind, responsive, and knowledgeable, and made sure we had everything we needed. She made our stay very relaxing and easy. The studio is also extremely well-located by the water and close to the shops in town. We'd love to come back sometime soon! Thank you!"
