From the friendly staff greeting when you get there, clean well appointed kitchenette, unbelievable views from deck this place has it. Stayed almost everywhere there is to stay in Tofino. Have no idea why it took this long to stay here highly recommend nothing bad I can say about the place which is rare for me

House of Himwitsa is located directly behind the Tofino marina, offering a stunning view out across the Clayoquot Sound. You come to Tofino for the views and you won't find one better than this. I found the room to be quite generously sized compared to a typical hotel room with a kitchenette. Everything was clean and well appointed. The restaurant... More

This is pure luxus, great room and spectacular view from the balcony. Sadly we only had two nights here, we would love to come back sometimes! Also the restaurants around is of high standard adding to the perfect stay.

We stayed here for 3 nights in October, 2015. The space itself was beautiful, overlooking the harbour. Close to everything in Tofino. The few minor issues that we had were taken care of immediately without hesitation. Richard, owner/manger, was good enough to tell us of some of the hidden gems to see and do around Tofino. I would not hesitate... More

My family (2 adults + 2 children) had stayed in this place for 3 nights during Aug-2015. Overall, we were very pleased with this place. It has very good location with nice views, located in Tofino - just in front of the sea planes "airport"/wharf (which does not generate extra noise). Quiet place. Very close walking distance to few restaurants,... More

Great location overlooking the harbour. Close to good restaurants, I can highly recommend the SoBo restaurant up the hill. Our friends had a hot tub with their room, fantastic for relaxing under the clear starry skies. Locally owned with accommodation above the shops. Slept like a log here. Highly recommended

Came to Tofino with a friend to celebrate her birthday with a zero. This place was perfect! Hot tub on the balcony. Views to die for. Comfortable beds. Kitchenette to assist with the mixing of martinis. Great place to watch the eagles soar, the sun set and the float planes come and go. Would recommend without "but" to everyone!

First floor apartments will sleep at least 4 and very spacious with 2 queen beds, the kitchen is a little basic but hey we ate out anyway. View from the balcony is superb and you can choose an apartment with a balcony hot tub. The view came into it's own at sunset it was beautiful to see.

We stayed here for four nights - brilliant. The suite was great, with a small kitchen, table ,hot tub on balcony.And what a view. There is a supermarket, a liquor store and several restaurants close to the lodge. Especially the supermarket is helpful, because Tofino is quite expensive. Only bad thing with the lodge is that the kitchen is not... More
