About the property

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

Clayoquot Calm 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.

Very Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Clayoquot Calm! Spacious & private, this is the perfect place to relax & unwind. The kitchen is well equipped, we cooked in frequently even making Eggs Benedict for breakfast one morning. The heated floors made it so cozy. We sat in the hot tub every night, even when it was stormy. The town of Tofino shuts down a bit in January, but we had nice experiences at the Shelter Restaurant, Tofino Brewing, & Wildside Grill. If you are looking for a fun relaxing getaway this is the place for you!

I’d like to start by saying the pictures don’t do this place justice. It is much nicer in person.

We stayed here 3 nights for my wife’s 30th birthday. We had friends and family come to stay and visit. All of them were impressed at the amazing home, the view, and amenities. We will be booking again in the future and I imagine so will some of our group.

The first night we had some trouble finding the rental. It was dark and the address doesn’t show up correct on google maps. So if possible, travel in day light.

Thanks Phil and Louise

Escellent location and facility. Tranquil, secluded setting with spectacular water views.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely first-rate experience. The tranquil setting has magnificent views. The house is very well maintained and furnished. Very well-suited for a group, but also excellent for a couple. The hot tub is wonderfully situated. The sauna and pool table make the facility feel like a five star resort. Owner is very accommodating to special requests. We visit Tofino only at Christmas time, and appreciated the Christmas decorations in the house. Highly recommended.

The property was beautiful. Couldn’t have asked for s more serene place to spend my birthday.

  • 3 of 5

Although the property was beautiful, it was slightly disappointing that the sauna was not working, I was informed late into booking but not offered any conpensation. Also the floors were incredibly slippery, which I had picked up on from other reviews. We were careful all weekend but one of us ended up taking a huge spill and severely injuring her leg. Luckily x-rays confirmed nothing was broken, should really look into a fix for this problem. Out of the eight of us there, four slipped. Other than that the place was clean and spacious.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you found our home suitable, but very disappointed that you had some difficulties. We did notify you in advance that the sauna needed repairs. Fortunately we were able to locate new heating elements and have them delivered promptly to Tofino. Our caretaker made the repairs and the sauna was working correctly before your stay. The miscommunication is unfortunate. You could have called us or our on site caretaker. We were all available to help during your stay. The slippery floor is a serious concern and we are monitoring it carefully. We stayed at the home for 3 nights after your stay to look after routine maintenance and to set up the Christmas decorations. The floor was clean and well maintained but we did not find it slippery. We will monitor this closely to ensure it is safe. We have also asked our current guests to be careful and to let us know if they find the floor slippery. We hope your friends are all well and that the leg injury is healing.

Pictures do not do this property justice. We were a party of 7 adults & would stay here again in a heartbeat!! The home was very clean & VERY roomy. Loved the well equipped kitchen.
