About Rene Rutz

Born and raised in Zurich Switzerland, at the age of 20 I took an opportunity to work in BC's wilderness and that is where I now spend more leisure time today. I am a tool and die maker by trade, but spent quite some time around start up companies in the alternative fuel sector. After a lot of risky start up ventures we decided to build the Shore, something with less exposure and a place to spend time and use it as a vantage point to more exploring.

Rene Rutz purchased this condo in 2010

Why Rene Rutz chose Tofino

The Sailors Rest was first sold, and then came back in inventory after the client upgraded to a Penthouse. I always liked this unit, to me it was such a great space with lots of light and different views. So

I decided to buy it.

What makes this condo unique

The residence is directly at the Ocean front, with a private marina, a float plane and

a fuel dock right there.

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay and the whole experience. There's lots of 5 stars out there but specifics that I liked were: extremely clean, use of unscented detergents and no smelly chemicals and a Nespresso machine (no frother and bring your own pods). Enjoy the best of Tofino at this lovely condo.

Best vacation rental we have stayed at!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing vacation rental - we can not rave enough about it.

Incredible views (yes those photos really are the view!), very clean, spacious, and well appointed.

I hope we will be back one day to enjoy more lazy days sitting on the balcony watching the world go by below.

stunning condo, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a 5 night stay at The Shore in Tofino. The loft had incredible modern architecture, stunning views of the harbor and islands, and the most central location. Two of our activities were literally downstairs. We walked to the grocery store, meals, and activities. We can't wait to come back. Best VBRO we have ever had.

Convenient, Clean, Modern and WOW the Views! SPOIL YOURSELF!

  • 5 of 5

I originally booked the 2 bedroom 2 bath unit from Rene for my parents 60th birthday. Unfortunately, this unit was not available - but Rene was quick to make sure we weren't left homeless. He offered reimbursement and immediate attention. Due to my poor planning, he even arranged to insure I could check in past the check in hours. We are truly grateful to have a pet friendly, luxurious unit to spend with our family. You are walking distance from everything amazing in Tofino and the parking convenience in the underground parking is something you won't appreciate, till you realize parking is difficult downtown! The ocean views in the morning are amazing - they take your breath away. The only downfall I found was the lack of air conditioning - however the windows and winds do help cool off the unit on a hot hot summer day. New and Modern, you can't beat it! Thank you Rene for going over and beyond for us!

Breathtaking Views!

  • 5 of 5

I recently had the pleasure of staying in Rene’s fabulous loft! Waking up each morning with the stunning view of the inner harbor was incredible. I loved sitting on the deck and watching the ever changing landscape unfolding right in front of me… fishing boats heading out early, groups of kayakers paddling off to explore the many outer islands, float planes landing effortlessly and whale watching expeditions heading out with their guests in their colourful red suits. My real favourite though was watching the ever-present eagles soaring and the spectacular sunsets over Clayoquat Sound. The condo was the perfect setting and great location as everything was within walking or cycling distance. Eating out was definitely great as Rene recommended the Oyster Bar downstairs where Courtenay kept the very fresh seafood appetizers coming and made sure my wine glass was topped up! A great holiday and Rene was a wonderful host. I will definitely come back and highly recommend this little piece of paradise!

A wonderful retreat in Tofino!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in Tofino! Rene was an extremely friendly host. He replied very quickly and in detail to every e-mail and was very helpful during our stay. The location of the apartment is just perfect and the view into Clayoquot Sound is absolutely stunning. We would always stay at his apartment again. 100% recommendation!
