About Gold Coast Retreat

Privacy is our policy, The West Coast, our inspiration.

At Gold Coast Retreat you bathe in the pristine waters of the Clayoquot Sound and let your troubles fade away. Our cabin’s feature outdoor solariums with cast iron, clawfoot tubs… Bubbles included. The soothing sounds of crashing surf serve as a constant reminder during your stay. From your doorstep, just across the lane, a forested beach path takes you to the famous Chesterman Beach. For the un-initiated it is a wildlife viewing, beach combing and surfing paradise. The village centre in Tofino is a short 6 kilometres away. Drive or ride your bike on the multi-use path. In the opposite direction the famous Pacific Rim National Park Reserve is also a short 6km drive away.
