About Bobbi

Brand new home built in 2011. Here we are at framing stage.

Bobbi purchased this studio in 2011

Why Bobbi chose Vancouver Island

Tofino is a hidden jewel and an amazing place to visit. We are home to some of the last remaining Temperate Old Growth forests in the world. You step back into a world of simplicity and beauty when you enter this wilderness, there is no other place like it. It boasts an array of attractions to draw you in whether it be the surfing, spectacular wildlife, hiking, world class salmon fishing, spas/yoga or the gourmet Westcoast cuisine, you'll find you're 'love' here!

What makes this studio unique

Black Bear Guest suite offers a private, quiet get away with Inlet water views. The suite is your luxurious home away from home. Hot tub is an added bonus! You are minutes away from Tofino's most popular beach for surfing, combing or long walks.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at the Black Bear Suite. The location was great, only a few minute walk to Chesterman beach. The suite exceeded our expectations - beautiful and clean, with a nice view. The rain boots, rain jackets and robes were such an added bonus! Jay and Bobbi have made sure there is everything you could need, and were very friendly and helpful. Thank you so much! We would love to stay again.

Every thing you need for a comfy stay

  • 5 of 5

This suite was clean, cozy and beautiful. The kitchen had everything we needed for fixing our own meals. Nice clean hot tub, choices of videos and cozy fireplace. Walking distance to fabulous Chesterman beach for great walking and storm watching. Thank you to Jay and Bobbie for their kind hospitality.

“Perfect stay” - Great location, fabulous suite, wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

The suit was new, clean, comfortable and quiet. The kitchen was well stocked and they even had some condiments in the fridge which came in handy. We appreciated the fact that the suite was a four minutes’ walk from the beach. Bobbi and Jay were a lovely couple the best of hosts. Our family loved the accommodations and we would defiantly stay there again.

Gorgeous Well-Appointed Suite!

  • 5 of 5

We were highly impressed with the suite from the moment we pulled up. It seems that Bobbi and Jay thought of everything. The architecture and layout is quite beautiful...we found the view of the bay especially nice. It's a fair walk into town, though not impossible, and it's only a couple of minutes to drive in. We would definitely recommend and return!

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 4 of 5

Clean, cozy, with lots of extra comfort details such as fluffy white robes, local toiletry products to try [Sea Wench Naturals - so amazing I, bought some to bring home] yoga mats, plus rain ponchos and rubber boots to borrow since it is the west coast with west coast wet weather! Fully equipped kitchen was great since we prefer to cook our own meals. The location is easy to find and 2 blocks from South Chesterman Beach for strolling, surfing or boarding. Bike/walk path into Tofino which is about 5-6 km away but Chocolate Tofino and Tacofino is an easy walk of 2 km away which are must visit spots! Next time we will bring our bikes for visits into town. Would definitely recommend this spot and look forward to returning for some R and R in the future. Bobbi, our host was friendly and helpful. Thanks for an enjoyable stay.

Beautiful Suite, Great View, & 2 Min Walk to Ocean

  • 5 of 5

It is nestled back in the woods with a view of the inlet. It is a beautiful and clean property. The decor makes it feel warm and inviting. They had rain jackets there to use and bath robes like a hotel visit. There was a great hot tub to use as well. I was impressed with what all they had in the kitchen to use such as a coffee maker, rice cooker, blender, and plenty of pots and pans. I love to be in a place that you can eat out and eat in when you want. We had a view of the inlet from the kitchen and there is so much light in the suite because of all the skylights. The bathroom was modern and very beautiful as well. I loved the heated floors! It was a very nice touch. You can get to the beach by walking across the street. It was in a great location to the downtown area and grocery store. While you are there check out the restaurant Wolf in The Fog loved the atmosphere there! Also, Ocean Outfitters is a great way to explore the surrounding area. And if you are up for surfing lessons check out Surf Sister. The owners were great with communication. I would love to come back and stay here and definitely recommend this suite to other people. I enjoyed my stay very much! Thank you for everything!
