Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ken was very responsive and helpful, providing great restaurant suggestions. The location of the property cant be beat - walking distance to Mackenzie beach, a small grocery store, and various restaurants. The unit was very large with high ceilings, an adequate kitchen, living area and bedroom. The property had a great lounge area, fire pit and BBQ and everything was clean. Ken provided lawn chairs and let us take kindling to the beach for evening fires. Great value compared to other places we researched. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend to other travelers.

We stayed for four nights. This inn is located in a quiet, private neighborhood, not too far from Tofino but far enough so that you could appreciate the privacy of the neighborhood. Excellent off road parking. Host was very nice and offered several excellent travel tips regarding hikes, beach info and restaurants to go to…and all of his advice was spot on! Comfortable bed. Somewhat small bathroom, especially the shower, but it was very clean and functional. Our suite had a small kitchenette with a refrig, toaster oven, toaster, microwave, a portable single burner induction stovetop, and a nice array of dishes and utensils. There was a two person breakfast bar in front of a big window that looked out onto the porch. There were two very comfy leather Scandinavian chairs along with a matching footstool that was really nice…you could look out the window at the porch while sitting next to a warming fake/electric fireplace. There was a bird feeder off the porch that attracted mostly doves and jays but also a quite cheeky young raccoon. A very pleasant stay.

Cobble Wood Guest Houses is a great place in a great place. The rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable, and the location is super-convenient to beaches, eateries, and 'downtown'.
Ken is super attentive and helpful. He made us feel welcomed and at home, and provided some insider info on skipping lineups, and hidden gems of the area.
Highly recommend for a perfectly relaxing visit to Tofino.

The hosts are long-time area residents. We stayed in the golden dawn suite (across the street from the other suites featured in the photo) There are two suites upstairs, beside the host residence; we were at the tail end of the restriction on health
region travel and so for us we had the deck (and no adjoining neighbour) to ourselves. It was private and works for both owners and guests because even though house is connected they are angled away from each other and felt separate. There are several advantages to the location. One is that returning home you leave traffic noise and crowds behind, even though you are just minutes from town and beach. There is the convenience of a mini mall close by with food outlets and a little general store. Mackenzie beach is accessed easily through the Ocean Village entrance and you can also return home via the other end of the beach (middle beach). Just minutes away, the cove (crystal) fronting the island to the left of the entrance provided us with a secluded and lovely place to watch the sun's sink, backed by a wealth of bird song (swainson's thrush/orange-crowned warbler/song sparrows etc).
The unit was clean with a fully equipped kitchen which spared us from restaurant lineups and expensive menus. There is a lot of storage space. And for a bonus, the Tofino craft brewery is in walking distance.
Close to many things but away from it all at 'the sanctuary'.

Nice clean place. Prices too high by around 80$ imo. No actual bird sanctuary exists there. They request you clean up and do your own dishes lol, then leave an envelope for a tip.
......... Too funny.

We enjoyed our stay at Cobble Wood. Our room was very modern, clean, and had cooking facilities. Our host was very hospitable and was helpful in making recommendations regarding places to eat. The guest house is not located in the center of Tofino and you would need to get into town by car or bike. That was not a problem for us, but others might like to be at the "center" of things. At the same time, the Cobble Wood was a quick drive to most of the beaches. Given what we had, we felt that the price was fine. We would stay there again.

Every Labour Day our group of friends get together at some location for some R&R and this year was in Tofino at this beautiful guest house. It was the best location so far in all our years that we've done this and we've been to some nice places.
The facility is clean and modern, beds super comfortable, and the hosts are lovely people who were very responsive to all of our requests. There are lots of restaurants, shops and trails in the area, quite a few within walking distance. And of course there is the marvellous beach less than a five minute walk away. Scenery along the route and at the location is breathtaking. We would highly recommend the Cobble Wood & Bird Sanctuary Guest House as a travel destination.

This lovely property is in a wonderful secluded location far enough away from it all to avoid all the tourists, but close to some amazing amenities like the beach and some great take out places. It was so quiet at night that two extremely light sleepers had perfect nights’ rest the entire holiday. We were impressed by the grounds most of all, but also appreciated the cleanliness of the room, and the gracious hosts too.

My rental was well equipped with very clean and modern appliances and furnishings. The outside shared spaces were spacious, comfortable, quiet and attractive. The large shared deck space was a bonus and had enough space and seating and tables for several people. Also provided was a large BBQ and grilling area and a fire fit with very nice chairs and firewood at the ready . My hosts were attentive and asked me on several occasions if there was anything extra they could do to make my stay more enjoyable. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Our family of 4 stayed for 5 nights in the Sandpiper suite. It's a beautiful apartment with huge windows and lots of light.
It was an easy 15 minutes walk to the beach, and very close to one of the shopping hubs with surf shop, bike shop, and taco fino!
Ken is a very knowledgeable and attentive host.
We highly recommend staying here.
