wedding in Tofino

Hi. Me and my fiance absolutely love Tofino, it is our happy place. And for this reason we would like to get married there. I didn't think this would be so difficult, but i want to have a low key, intimate, west coast wedding with close friends and family and I don't want to do it in a big hotel. I would really like to rent a home on the beach, but I am not having any luck on rentals. Can anyone help point me in the right direction on who i can speak to. I have talked with quite a few rental agencies and they say they don't rent for weddings. A few details, would like it Sept 2011 (dates are flexible) and the wedding is going to be for about 40 people.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance!!

The only thing that comes to mind is contacting the Chamber of Commerce with your request. They might know a business that has a property.

It's not on the beach but how about The Tofino Botanical Gardens http://www.tbgf.org/ . They have the "Botanical House" for rent with 3 bedrooms plus the field station has 4 private rooms plus dorm rooms to seep up to 32. They have meeting rooms and a cafe that can be rented for events

thank you for your suggestion. I had checked the gardens which are beautiful, but we would really like the house on the beach so we can utilize it without having so much separation.

oh and i should have mentioned in the first msg that i don't need a house to accomodate everyone overnight just for the reception. :)

Have you ever considered having your wedding on the water. West Coast Aquatic Safaris has the most incredible 36 passenger catamaran and have done some very cool private charters up into the inlets of Clayoquot sound. Some wedding groups have taken the wedding party for one of their Oyster farm tours which even include a fresh Oyster lunch prepared at the farm on the water by a local chef. Very worth checking out.

Have you check on any of the sites like ownerdirect.com or VRBO.com? There are a lot of private homes for rent in Tofino.
