This was a great base for us to explore the Tofino area of Vancouver Island. Tofino is a real friendly place full of people who love the town and life itself.
We stayed here as part of a trip across Canada. Comfortable lodgings, a lovely decked patio surrounded by trees and nature. The shower is outside but not overlooked at all, except maybe from a Bald Eagle eating a fish on top of a tree. We immediately got used to it, finding it fun and a great way to start the day and "feeling at one with nature" (there is a bathroom indoors so don't worry)
This place has all you need to cook and do any laundry - particularly handy if you are travelling on a longer trip as eating out every night can get to be expensive and a chore although we did love "Shelter" and went there a couple of times.
Coming out of the cottage driveway the town is a 10/15 minute walk to the right and 5/10 minutes to the left is a cluster of businesses including Yoga, food and drink and a great bike hire shop run by great people...oops, nearly forgot.. and lovely beaches.
If you have a car there is a lot to see round here and you'll enjoy some good day trips. We mainly used bikes. If walking at night definitely take a torch so you can see and be seen. There isn't much light pollution round there so it gets pitch black at night.
If you are "active sleepers" the bed did squeak a little, but who cares, nobody but the bears will hear you.
Great cozy place for a couple. My husband enjoyed the outdoor shower, but that may not be for everyone... The owner seems to have thought of everything that you may need. It was a great home away from home for your stay.
Despite a hiccup with the cleaning crew coming in late the place was spectacular, and the owner sorted it out promptly. My partner and I had a wonderful few nights in the cozy cabin and are already looking forward to our next stay. Would recommend more than two nights.
This cottage was perfect for our time in Tofino. The cottage was beautiful and cosy, with a stunning view (which my photo doesn’t capture), and had everything we needed. The fire was great for the cold evenings!
The location was fantastic, we were just a 10 minute cycle from Tofino town, and walking distance to several of the beaches.
It’s also only a short walk to the Tofino brewary. We will definitely be staying again. We couldn’t have hoped for a better place to stay. Thanks Pat.
Great spot for relaxing, bird watching, storm watching as the living room faces the inlet! Close to town and the lovely eco lodge cafe. We will come again.
Just a wonderful place, we had a perfect time in a fantastic environment. Lovely cottage in an excellent location. Would fully recommend it as a base to explore Tofino, which is itself excellent.
Charming cottage with vaulted high ceilings. Beautiful windows with lush green foliage; from the living room & deck a view to the water. Cozy comfy living room & bedroom. Kitchen had all the amenities. Wonderfully organized! Made some dinners in with delicious fish from Trilogy paired with BC wines. Biked into the village and toodled around, great morning coffee at Tofino Roasters. Beautiful beaches and great restaurants...came home from our outings and turned on the fireplace for immediate ambiance and warmth and would pop in a dvd from Pat's collection. We want to come back and stay! What a great experience!
