Overview

About the property

Casual west coast elegance with stunning oceanfront views.

The Anchorage at Whiskey Landing is a unique west coast experience. Traditional post and beam architecture, a master craftsman's attention to detail, and luxury amenities make The Anchorage one of the most desirable vacation getaways in Ucluelet, but it's the unparalleled location that makes it one of the most memorable. Situated right at the water's edge in Ucluelet Inlet, The Anchorage offers stunning views of the ocean stretching from your doorstep to the mountains beyond. Although it's only a 2 minute walk to the center of town, seals, sealions, eagles and otters will be your closest neighbours at The Anchorage.

This two-bed two-bath retreat features a spacious open concept layout that easily gives larger groups plenty of room to spread out while still offering a warm and inviting atmosphere. The living room is thoughtfully laid out around an extra-large natural gas fireplace, and bay windows with reading nooks offer a cozy place to snuggle up with a blanket and enjoy the scenery. The main dining area features panoramic views of the inlet and the mountains, and is ideal for hosting a big family brunch, or just enjoying a romantic dinner for two.

The Anchorage features vaulted ceilings made with locally sourced cedar and douglas fir, stainless steel appliances, and luxurious features like a two person soaker tub in the master bedroom ensuite. Wall-to-wall windows and skylights flood The Anchorage with natural light. The large wrap-around deck is the perfect place to start your day watching the sun rise over the misty waters, or enjoy an evening dinner of freshly caught seafood while watching the local fishing fleet come in to moor for the night.

From The Anchorage you are literally steps away from the Ucluelet Aquarium and the government dock, 1 minute from the local bakery and cafe, 2 minutes from the local grocery and BC liquor store, 3 minutes from the whale-watching fleet docks, 5 minutes from the boutiques and restaurants on Peninsula Rd. 10 minutes from the Wild Pacific Trail (all on foot), while Tofino is an easy 30 minute drive through the old-growth coastal forests of Pacific Rim National Park.

Unspoiled beaches and pristine wilderness, legendary salmon and halibut fishing, incredible whale watching opportunities, world-class surfing, and a year-round schedule of family-friendly festivals and events are just some of the attractions you can look forward to!

Whether you are looking to unwind and enjoy the laid-back lifestyle of one of the last real fishing villages on the west coast, or searching for adventure on the open ocean just around the corner, The Anchorage is the perfect home away from home. We welcome you to come and experience what is sure to be the trip of a lifetime!

About Shanti and Mark

Hi!

We are Mark and Shanti, a young couple from Vancouver Island that moved to Bamfield (just across Barkley Sound) in 2006 and fell in love with this special corner of the world. We are both wildlife biologists specializing in birds, and we have spent the last decade and a half working everywhere from Baja to Antarctica as researchers. Our real passion is the Canadian High Arctic, where we have been returning every year since 2004. When we aren't running around chasing birds, we (and our young daughter Mallory) enjoy surfing, boating, and eating fresh seafood back on the coast. We are both active in the communities of Ucluelet and Tofino, and we have been part of the Tofino Shorebird Festival for many years.

If you want to learn a bit more about our bird work, check out our website!

Shanti and Mark purchased this condo in 2016

Why Shanti and Mark chose Ucluelet

Shanti first came to Ucluelet in 2005 to work as a fisheries observer, and Mark not long after in search of birds....We eventually settled down in Bamfield, but we'd pop over to Ukee in our little boat as often as we could, and invariably tie up at the government dock, right in front of Whiskey Landing. Watching Whiskey Landing get built over the years, little did we think we'd ever have the chance to own a part of this incredible building! Whiskey Landing is a special place because it really represents the vision of the fellow who built it. No expense was spared, and no compromise was made, and the building is truly a testament to old-school west-coast craftsmanship. We are so excited to be able to share this incredible spot with guests from all around the world!

What makes this condo unique

The Anchorage at Whiskey Landing is all about the little details; the hand-carved ravens on the outside beams (one of them with a Japanese fishing float in its bill!); the unfinished tree trunk post in the second bedroom, the local art....But these are just details. The very best features are ones that we can't really take any credit for - like the eagles perching in the cedars just a few meters away, the sealions cavorting in the inlet, the boats coming and going from the offshore fishing grounds....It's about being in a place where you can really feel and experience the true west coast lifestyle!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mark and Shanti's beautiful getaway home is absolutely stunning. Their place is very modern, with floor to ceiling windows boasting superb views over the harbour. We often spent breakfast on the patio watching wildlife as the sun rose beyond the mountains :) The kitchen has everything you could possibly need, including herbs and spices. An in suit washer and dryer is available also. The kitchen, large lounge room and dining space is all open concept, which makes socializing very easy and fun. The bedrooms are large, with exceptionally comfortable beds, lots of light and a large jacuzzi tub in the ensuite. We had a girls weekend away and this space was perfect for the 5 of us. Very clean, spacious and close to everything you could possibly need. We would definitely stay back here again!! Thanks

Great Views and walking distances

  • 5 of 5

Great views from rooms and balcony. We saw so many eagles and have one photo that National Geographic would even like...just kidding, but it is a close up of a Bald Eagle like no other. We even saw a BEAR! Yes, it was across the water on the sandy beach, but thrilling. We were in walking distance to everything in the town of Ucluelet. The bathroom at Whiskey Landing is spacious and the master bed is comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked. We suggest bringing your own washcloths as those for some reason are not provided. The owners are attentive and respond quickly. The elevator is helpful for luggage and tired legs.

Excellent property - nice location, beautiful view, very clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a weekend fishing trip. The condo fit four of us very comfortably, with beautiful views of boats coming in and out of the harbor. You can walk virtually anywhere in the town from the front door. I would recommend this location to anyone!

The condo was clean and just as described. .

  • 4 of 5

I liked that there were games available for guests to use. My husband was not impressed that even the most basic TV channels (gold medal hockey game) were only available to purchase. A major downside was the construction that was happening directly below us all day Saturday and Sunday morning. There was absolutely no peace and quiet at all. We would have liked to know about this. Also Zoe’s, a local bakery was recommend. Do not bother going ther. Coffee was terrible. I didn’t think anyone could mess up an americano but apparently you can. Also the hot chocolate was powdered.

Owner's Response: Hi there, We are very sorry about the construction noise. The work that was going on can only really be done in ideal weather, and it was a bit of a last-minute call to get a crew up from Port Alberni to do this work. We do our best to notify guests if we anticipate any kind of disruption or noise, but in this case we weren't even aware the crew was coming up until the very last minute. At any rate, we are sorry it was an issue. We do have basic cable TV, but we don't have TSN, which was the only channel showing the game.
