We loved all the beautiful forest walks, the great seafood available, the town of Tofino with its attractions and the cottage with all of it’s charm. We really enjoyed watching the hummingbirds, robins and other small birds enjoy the yard! Beautiful surroundings, for sure!

About the neighborhood
Perfectly located on walking and biking multi use path between the village and beaches this 1.5 acre property borders Tofino inlet.
Getting around
I mostly recommend having a car as there are large distances between the beaches and park but Tofino Bus Service is a good way to travel to Tofino and then rent a bike from Marc the bike guy! In Summer months the free shuttles a wonderful way to get to village and beaches.
