“September 2013 beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

We lucked out with the weather in the first week of September and it is a great time to come to Tofino.. most of the crowds are gone back to school and all of the restaurants and tour places are still open and with vacancies.
Captain's Quarters at Vista Hermosa cannot be beat for accommodation in Tofino. It is a fully serviced apartment and everything is in top notch condition. Plenty of room for everyone (5 in our family). The view over the harbour is spell binding. We found it hard to wrestle away from watching all the busy-ness at the pier in order to see the other area sights. The view of the mountains and the sound was riveting too, with colours changing with the light and shadows, all day long.
Eric and Rosa are friendly and welcoming. This place is highly recommended.,

What a fantastic stay and Vista Hermosa! Everything was lovely- our unit was clean and in a central location. We had great views and everything that we needed in our suite.
The only complaint I have about the place was that there is a public table right out front that people tend to sit (some with drinks), this made us a bit uncomfortable to sit on the deck at times, but really was not a big deal.
Overall a great stay- I would recommend it.

Room Tip: We took the ocean front suite- great for a couple, but super roomy

We stayed in August , and were astounded by the beauty of the place. This is a high quality self -catering, rental, ( not really a hotel) with private hot tub and deck with some of the best views you will ever see. Lazing in the hot tub with the sun setting over the sea and and mountains is an experience I'll never forget. Eric was very helpful and friendly, we appreciated the liberal helpings of complimentary chocolate and coffee. The bed linen and towels were good quality and the place was perfect. Homely enough to relax with the kids, special enough to feel like an up-market stay. Tofino is just lovely, great atmosphere and food. Don't miss out on whale watching or Bear watching from here, its the place to do it.

Room Tip: The captains quarters is a 3 bed apartment, 2 lovely doubles and a bunk bed room for kids.

We had the pleasure of staying here last year (October )and we can't wait to return!! The place was clean, spacious and well laid out. It provided a feeling of warmth and openess. The view from this place is spectacular. We enjoyed our breakfasts and romantic evenings with an amazing view of the lake.

The highlight for me was the huge private hot tub that overlooks the lake below. the only reason why im not giving it a 5 is because we found pieces of broken glass inside the tub and also at the deck. Nobody got hurt but I wish it was cleaned and checked before we came.

We will definitely be returning when we feel the need for a get-away.

Room Tip: This was the only place in tofino that had a private outdoor hot tub with a lake view. a big plus.

We stayed a week and enjoyed the convenience of being across the road from the supermarket and liquor store, the magnificent waterfront view, clean, comfortable accommodation and the hot tub. A couple of excellent restaurants and cafes nearby and great fishing with Cleanline Charters made for a most memorable holiday.

We stayed at Vista Hermosa for a week. The location is absolutely fantastic - we loved it. The accommodation is spacious and ideal for two mature couples travelling together. However, on arrival we had to contact the property manager to complain about the cooker and Bar B Q not being clean and that the sink in one of the bathrooms was not draining away. This was rectified after a day. As we settled in other things came to our attention. The sheets were not ironed, there was chipped crockery, a ripped cushion, very dusty carpet behind the furniture that had not been cleaned for some time. The furnishings are tired and some money just needs to be thrown at some of the household items. These issues have been bought to the attention of the property owner who was disappointed and unaware of the problems. He will be raising with the property management company so hopefully all will be addressed. It did not however ruin our holiday in any way because the apartment and view are unbeatable and we considered we had the best location in Tofino!! We had an exceptional week.

Its more then 10 years since our first visit to Vista Hermosa but we are well and truly hooked. We have had a stay in the beautiful Ocean Suite but our favourite is the Captains Quarters as we now can't come without friends. We always come in the fall when Tofino is quieter and we are always surprised at the beauty of the area. We have had everything from wild and stormy to balmy summer weather. We love it no matter what the weather as Vista Hermosa offers us the best in comfort and relaxation. We love the views and we never get bored watching the boats, planes, eagles and wonderful sunsets.Add to all that the hot tub under the stars at night.We couldn't ask for anything more and hope to continue returning year after year.
