Beautiful beach front home
It's a beautiful property, very clean, cozy and comfortable. Great beach views ( over the trees which provide nice privacy) and just a short walk down the path on the side to the nicest beach (in my opinion) in Tofino. Beautiful on a sunny day but equally invited on a rainy day. Also conveniently located to taco fino and tofitian coffee..2 minute drive away. Allowing pets is also such a bonus. I've been staying in Tofino for 15 +years in various rental homes and hotels and this is my favourite. I've already booked for next year!
Quiet 4 days away
We had a lovely time at Heron's Perch. It is a beautiful retreat/reprieve from the hectic world we live in. Would go back again.
We have stayed at Heron's Perch twice now and our stays just get better and better. The property is clean and nicely appointed with all important access to the jaw dropping beauty of Chesterman Beach. We enjoyed every moment of our stay, felt cozy and well looked after....the hot tub is a wonderful addition. Thanks Catherine for maintaining this wonderful property for many to enjoy!

Amazing view and location
Our family enjoyed watching and listening to the ocean as we slept. The easy proximity to the beach meant we spent every day there and loved the warm outdoor shower for rinsing off. Looking forward to coming back!
Cozy and Comfortable
We has a wonderful time at Heron's Perch for our anniversary. Great location and view! We didn't spend much time inside as we were out and about most of the days but the cabin is comfortable and cozy. One thing to note - no dishwasher or washer/dryer which would have been nice but definitely not a deal breaker for us. Would absolutely recommend to anyone staying in Tofino.
Truly Paradise thank you so much your house is beautiful and we enjoyed staying there
We can't say enough about this beautiful property. The access to the beach was amazing the fire pit at the beach entrance was awesome and kept us warm while surfing and the hot tub was a perfect end to a day. The outside shower was also perfect for washing off the saltwater. Again thank you so very much highly recommend anybody who wants to enjoy Tofino and do some great surfing to stay here
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.
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:)
