Photos and Description of the Chesterman Beach vacation cottage rental

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

Welcome to Heron's Perch.

This cozy waterfront cottage, nestled in the trees on Chesterman's Beach is perfectly situated for you to get out and enjoy the outdoors while offering views of magnificent Pacific sunsets from your deck chair.

Step onto the 1 1/2 mile sandy beach to stroll, beachcomb and relax. This is a favourite spot to witness the pounding ocean swells in the winter.

Bald eagles and ospreys make the beach their home and migratory shore birds use it as a rest stop throughout the year.

The village of Tofino is a great place to explore, full of rich maritime history. From here many boat tours depart into Clayoquot Sound and to offshore areas.

Come visit our lovely cottage that is great for families and couples with everything you need for a weekend or a 3 week stay and only a few minutes away from the village of Tofino.

There is a folder on the living room table with wonderful articles about Tofino and the magical possibilities for exploring at your fingertips. There is something for everyone.

Check-in is after 4pm. Check-out is before 11am. Due to a tight cleaning schedule, checkout times have to be respected. You must contact us if you need to make alternate arrangements.

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:)
