Overview

Photos and Description of the Tofino vacation cottage rental

1 bed, 1 bath. Sleeps 6- 4 adults, 2 kids. Roll out of bed, onto to the Beach

Please Note: Between January 2017- March 2017 there will be renovations occurring in the garage space below the cottage. We are offering 50% off the regular low season rate for this inconvenience and promise to not start too early or go too late. The construction of the cabin is old school and so sound doesn't travel very easily and the entire orientation of the view is to the beach and ocean and won't be interrupted by those working below:)

Once the renovation are done - there will be a hot/cold outdoor shower, hot tub and a larger deck with a fire pit:) This will be for your exclusive use. There will also be an extra unit downstairs with another bedroom, pull out sofa and full bath, which can be rented separately, but allows families or couples to travel together, but have a some private space to retreat to. It will be available May 1st. Let us know if you would like to rent it in the request as it doesn't yet have its own listing.

There will also be a small studio for a local caretaker. Tofino has instated a law requiring vacation renters to provide local housing which is wonderful as it will protect the texture and fabric of the community. We have designed it such that everyones privacy is protected and if anything the romance of the cottage will be amplified:))

The Cottage description as it is now-

Sleep to the sounds of the ocean waves, wake to the smell of old growth forest and the ability to step right onto the stunning Chesterman beach that will give you hours of exploring pleasure, has Canada's best surfing and is rimmed in dramatic Mountains.

The cottage strikes the perfect balance of having the inspiring expanse of shifting light, and horizon, and dramatic sunsets, with being cozy and embracing.

The bed is super comfortable with down pillows and down comforter. There is a pillow top for those who want a little bit more comfort there is also a fabulous sofa that doubles as a 2nd queen bed. it is firm rather than being a lumpy spring pull out. There is another down comforter under the window seats; which kids absolutely adore sleeping in, as they feel like they are in a tree house.

You can make a fire right on the beach, walk across the sand to the famous Wikininnish Inn to enjoy their world class dinning or indulge yourself at the Ancient cedars Spa.

There are great board games, and comfy reading chairs where you can watch the bald eagles and whales. There are few spots right on the beach as romantic as Herons Perch. We hope to make your stay a treasure of a memory.

Location

The Cottage is a private house located on a one half acre Right on North Chesterman Beach, which gets the longest sunset light. It is a world famous beach for its uninterrupted hard packed sand, mountains and world class surfing (it was the home of the entire Cold Water Classic Canada in 2010.)

Whether you're looking to catch your first green or you're a hot shot surfer this is a good beach to ride Tofino waves. You'll find all levels of surfers here and like all the Tofino beaches, there's lots of room for everyone. Stretch out in the afternoon sun and stay until sunset. Dogs run free and you can have a fire right on the beach. The stars come all the way down to the ocean.

Walking South towards the lighthouse and around the point you'll find South Chesterman Beach South Chesterman Beach perfect for surfing and often a good place for beginners, although you'll also find the experts there riding the waves. South Chesterman Beach can be a good place for the family to get into the water, there's lots of space for everyone to take that magical first surf ride or catch a wave on a boogie board. Bring a picnic and make a day of it.

Tofino itself is a wonder with its rich flora, fauna. It is where the whales play and you can take a zodiac into the inlet and watch black bears forage for shellfish along the shore. There is a lot of information in the cottage to introduce you to the fabulous adventures you can have and the incredible food that can be enjoyed. My favourite is Wolf in the Fog - which also just got voted best new restaurant in Canada:) You can rent bikes and surf boards while picking up excellent tacos just at the end of the road which is a 5 min walk. Everything in Tofino is close, easy and accessible, but waking up to the ocean view and the sound of the surf feeds the soul in a way that most of us have forgotten.

Hiking Trails

The Pacific Rim National Park offers many hiking trails through old-growth forest. Many of these trails are on boardwalk to protect the forest floor and take you either deep into the forests or down to secluded beaches. There's even one through a mystical bog. Closer to Curious Cove Guest House you may walk down to view the Tofino mudflats which is bursting with migratory birds, shore birds, ospreys, otters, seals and a beautiful view to famous Meares Island in Clayoquot Sound.

Shops and Tours

A short bike ride, a bit longer walk or a quick drive away is the village of Tofino. There you will find a vibrant community centre with whale watching tours, bear watching cruises, kayaking and surf shops, restaurants and cafés, galleries and book shops. The village is a perfect size for strolling through, looking in shop windows and seeing what makes this little town so picture perfect. Could it be the eagles nesting out front, the sunset from first dock, the boats in the harbour or the float homes glowing in the sunshine?

A perfect massage is a great way to end a long day of fishing or surfing at the Tofino Sacred Stone Spa. Be sure to book your treatments in advance as they are based upon availability.

Tofino means to fall in Love

If you come once; you will come again:)
