Great space, amenities, setting and location

  • 5 of 5

This place had it all. The great room was, in a word, great for our extended family. Everyone was able to hang out in a variety of comfortable spots, each with a view and plenty of light from the floor to ceiling windows. The space was also surprisingly warm, given the number of windows and high ceilings. The gourmet cooks in our group enjoyed the spacious kitchen and high end appliances. And of course the espresso machine saw heavy use.

It was easy to walk to Chesterman Beach and Cox Bay, two of the area's most popular beaches. Our son in law, who is an avid surfer, was in heaven with the set up: racks for his boards, an outdoor shower, hot tub, and the coffee machine. My husband was able to launch his kayak from the property and paddle into town in protected waters. Although it was an unusually cold period during our stay, we were able to enjoy an evening sitting around the firepit.

As others have mentioned, Adam the owner was very responsive and helpful. We appreciated his tips and enjoyed talking to him about the design of the house.

We would love to go back in the summer to enjoy the many outdoor seating areas thoughtfully placed around the large decks surrounding the house. Tofino is truly a year round destination with its beautiful wild areas and very civilized restaurants and cafes.

Miss it already ...

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many places in the area, including other houses on the inlet side, always with an extended family of six or more. This is an amazing place – well appointed bedrooms, deluxe kitchen, fashionable design features, funky light fixtures, super cool sound system, and incredible indoor and outdoor spaces. The house was designed and built with the utmost care and attention to detail – just beautiful. Parents, grandparents, and kids could all find a nook to hang out in, while the dining room table and kitchen were perfect communal spaces for us all to get together. We loved paddle-boarding right on the inlet when the tide got high enough, and the walk to Chesterman’s was a quick and easy trek to paradise. Adam was very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. We’ll be back for sure.

A very special place, you can tell the love that went into and continues to go into this property!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! Adam was so great. He was around to answer questions but he was not in our space at all. The house comes with everything you need to relax, cook and entertain. Beautiful location, close to beaches and town. A true hidden gem on the westcoast of Vancouver Island.

Even better than expected.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property, and it actually exceeded expectations which were already pretty high from the pictures and reviews on VRBO. The great room, where we spent most of our time, was amazing. The kitchen was extraordinary with modern gas burner cooktop, marble surfaces, fully outfitted with dishes and utensils. For audiophiles, the sound system is amazing (LP player is fun!). The place is very modern, and spacious, we were 6 travelers in total and we could hang out comfortably together or find quiet spaces to have some alone time. My favourite aspect was the outdoor space, the home is surrounded by beautiful decking and furnishings, this is where you will find a hot tub and fire pit (lots of firewood on property). Added bonus, Adam, the owner, lives onsite and can be quickly reached by phone or text. He's happy to answer any questions and even demo the cappuccino maker! We will be back next year for sure.
