This is a lodge consisting of 5 rooms on the top floor of a building with a native gift shop and restaurant on the ground floor. There are 3 rooms with large balconies facing the back overlooking the ocean. We stayed in room #2. The room was large and spacious with great views of the ocean, government dock and mountains,...

We spent 2 nights at The House of Himwitsa. We opted for room no. 2 without spa. It was a very spacious room with 2 queen beds and kitchenette facility. The view from the room was just magnificent! You could see the water and the mountain from the bed. You could also enjoy sunset from the balcony. Highly recommended.

Stayed 3 nights and found the rooms beautiful, scrupulously clean, and comfortable. Really enjoyed the private hot tub on our deck overlooking the scenic wharf and ocean. The kitchenette came in handy for breakfasts and suppers on the deck. Will come again.

We stayed in the House of Himwitsa for three days. The hotel is within walking distant of everything in the town and just a block from a beautiful path through the woods to one of the beaches. The room sits on the edge of the water overlooking the public dock and sea planes so there was something to watch all... More

The drive to Tofino from Cobble Hill was absolutely amazing. There was lots of snow on the ground so it was a somewhat slow trip as we drunk in the stunning scenery. We arrived in Tofino mid afternoon and were easily able to locate the “House of Himwitsa” despite not bothering to check its address. For those West Australian readers... More

My grandmother and I had planned to visit Tofino for years; I flew to Victoria from Medicine Hat, AB and we finally took the drive to Tofino. I did a lot of research about what I wanted to see and where I wanted to stay once we got there, I was NOT disappointed with my choice. The owners and staff... More

We had a lovely stay at Himwitsa, the room (well, apartment really) was fantastic, with a large balcony overlooking the water - in fact for the first time in our holiday we came 'home' mid afternoon because it was such a lovely place to relax and there was always something interesting to look at and such beautiful views.

Simple clean and spacious accommodation, part of a business run by a First Nation family. Small kitchenette with everything you need to prepare simple meals. The view from the deck across the harbour is expansive, sunsets can be wonderful.

Spacious and clean accommodation with views across the bay to die for. You could sit in the jacuzzi and watch the wonderful sunsets whilst sipping a beer or two! Good location at the end of town with supermarkets close by and a liquor store. Kitchen was just about adequate for preparing a meal but the kettle needed replacing as it... More

We spent our first night in Tofino at the House of Himwitsa and wished we had booked for longer! It's right in town on the water and the view was spectacular. We had room 5 with a hot tub on the balcony and a partial harbour view. Next time I will trade in the hot tub for a room right... More
