About the property

Spacious oceanfront home on 1 acre with 3 Bedrooms and 3 full Bathrooms.

Clayoquot Calm (Lic#20180590) is located on 1 acre of private, peaceful, oceanfront property that overlooks the stunning views of Browning Passage in Clayoquot Sound. This custom designed 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, one level, spacious home easily accommodates families and groups who enjoy vacationing together and is accessible to those with mobility issues. Ideally located within walking distance (1km) from the village of Tofino and within 5km of world-renowned surfing beaches like Chesterman Beach, Cox Bay and Long Beach, Clayoquot Calm is perfect for those seeking an idyllic west coast experience.

From the instant you walk in the door, our uniquely designed home welcomes you with breath taking waterfront views of Browning Passage from the living room, dining room as well as the master bedroom. Once inside, the open floor plan leads you through the living room with a wood-burning fireplace into the gourmet style kitchen. Off the kitchen, through beautiful, double patina fir doors, you find a games room that offers a fully equipped pool table and a large indoor sauna completely finished in cedar.

To enjoy the awe inspiring views outdoors, step out the glass French doors, between the dining and living rooms, onto the large concrete patio. Once there, have a seat in a handmade cedar chair to take in the amazing view while you deep breathe the fresh west coast air.

From the covered portion of this extensive patio, a 5 person hot tub, easily accessed from the living room, or master bedroom and ensuite, offers "apres-surf" or evening relaxation -- yet another soothing, relaxing venue from which to drink in the intoxicating phenomena that is the west coast.

Once you experience the rejuvenating magic of this idyllic retreat that is Clayoquot Calm, two things are certain: you will want to extend your stay and you will definitely need to return!!

Why Phil and Louise chose Tofino

Clayoquot Calm offers one of the best views of Browning Passage, especially from the serene stone beach that is easily accessed from the lawn. One could spend all day from the beach, the patio or, if too rainy, from the cozy living room couch, watching the changing tides expose and blanket the vast expanse of mud flats -- an everchanging landscape! The Browning Passage side of the peninsula offers panoramic breathtaking views without the rigour of the west side. At Clayoquot Calm one can enjoy the serenity and grandeur of the west coast or, within minutes, experience the wild, intensity of the open ocean --- truly the best this area has to offer!

What makes this house unique

Clayoquot Calm was custom crafted by a skilled tradesman who created an idyllic retreat that offers as much inside, with all the amenities, as outside. We were smitten the minute we walked in the front door from where we could see the intoxicating view through the massive windows on the opposite side of the house. Very open and spacious with fourteen foot ceilings in the great and games rooms and nine foot in the rest of the house, this rancher style home is finished with fir cabinets, doors and heated concrete floors that give it very comfortable and cozy feel. The design of the ceilings offers amazing acoustics -- even the radio sounds incredible! Clayoquot Calm, a peaceful oasis, crafted out of and within the magical west coast, is thoroughly enjoyed any time of the year, no matter the weather.

Beautiful oceanfront home

  • 5 of 5

If you want to stay at a beautiful huge home with lots of amenities, close to the ocean, walking paths to Botanical Gardens, bakery, craft beer store and Tofino this is the place to be. Our family enjoyed our stay here even when it was cloudy and rainy there is always something to do. Would recommend this place to any of my friends.

Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay here. Beautiful home, very comfortable rooms, fantastic kitchen and games room. Then you go outside to an amazing deck with a covered hot tub, which we made ample use of after zip lining and hiking the trails surrounding Tofino. Very nice beach coming down a path. Very private. Close enough to town that you can walk there, but far enough away that you are away from all the activity in town. I have been to Tofino 3 times now and this is my favourite place that I have stayed in. I will be back again next year|!!

A fully paved multi-use path (affectionately known as MUP) runs right across the end of our driveway. This securely separated path parallels the main highway and provides walkers, cyclists, joggers a safe avenue to travel into town (about 5 min on bicycle) or to the beaches and other attractions -- my personal favorite, Chocolate Tofino!
