“Comfortable, Good value, central location, quiet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

The studio is nicely decorated with a comfortable bed, nice linens, comfortable couch, and full kitchen complement. It doesn't feel at all like a rental that someone has filled with secondhand things that they don't care about; it felt like home. It is only one block from city center, so it is easy to walk to shops, eateries, the grocery store, or the docks. the deck is very small and the view is blocked by an unfortunately placed tree, but it does provide an opportunity to sit outdoors and enjoy a glass of wine. Compared to the dozen or so other places we looked at, extremely good value. we were very pleased. Would gladly stay again.

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012 for a stay in August 2011

When I first looked at accommodation in Tofino, I worried I wouldn't find anything suitable. But the Waterfront Studio was perfect! It's on the edge of town so an easy walk to shops, cafes and tour operators.

The studio is cosy, but nicely furnhished and had everything we needed. Nice shower in the bathroom. Full kitchen. Small dining setting. Comfortable couch and TV. Wifi included too which was really useful. Outside, a balcony with two chairs so close the water, as the name suggests.

Naomi was really helpful, offering advice and bringing around a new kettle. We didn't really need any help, but it was nice to know she was available, nearby and very friendly.

If I was lucky enough to return to Tofino, I wouldn't hesitate to book the Waterfront Studio again.

“Can't beat the view!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

My partner and I stayed here for two nights of our two week western Canada road trip. This studio unit has stunning views of Claycot Sound and the harbor activities going on within it such a boat tours, plane tours, etc. The unit was clean, modern, comfortable and spacious with a fully equipped kitchen and a balcony overlooking the sound. Naomi took good care of us and provided us with everything we needed for our stay. The unit is within walking distance to the shops and restaurants in Tofino as well as a number of tour companies, water taxis, etc. The price was very reasonable, particularly for a waterfront property in this area. I would highly recommend this property to other couples travelling to Tofino.

Re the area itself, it’s absolutely beautiful! We spent hours beachcombing at low tide and walking along the beaches in the Pacific Rim National Park. We highly recommend the zodiac whale watching tour with Ocean Outfitters. It’s a bit pricey at $100 per person but well worth the money for this 2.5 hour zodiac boat tour. We saw eagles, humpback and grey whales, seals, sea lions and sea otters!! A small negative would be the price food, etc. in this area. This is an expensive little village for tourists. Our only regret is that we only spent two nights there. We will definitely be back!
