Tofino house description
The Blueheron Guest House is a 3 bedroom custom built home overlooking Jensens Bay in Tofino. Exceptional wood detailing, skylights, vaulted ceilings, down duvets, private hot tub and gas fireplace.
An inlet waterfront retreat situated on 1.5 acres overlooking Jensens Bay directly across from South Chestermans Beach. Jensens Bay is a bird and nature lovers sanctuary. Its a fascinating intertidal zone with the changing of the tides every 6 hours, a constant ebb and flow into Browning Passage. Often with the water out of the bay you can watch in the distance a bear or lone wolf forage across the flats. There is a small cedar deck on a grassy knoll at waters edge perfectly situated to enjoy a quiet cup of coffee in the early morning dawn. Its also a perfect vantage point for sighting eagles, herons, murganzers, osprey and many other interesting species of birds. Huge oldgrowth cedars compliment the property, some you will see in the house recreated into majestic posts and beams. Chestermans Beach is ideally located across the road for surfing, beachfires (seasonally), beach combing, dogwalks or simply enjoying an early evenng stroll to watch an amazing west coast sunset. There is a small complex withing walking distance for groceries, movies, yoga, surf rentals, fish and chips(Wildside Grill), great coffee/espresso(The Tofitian) and chocolate .....Tofino style Yum! The Town of Tofino is a short drive in (5 Klm) so a car would be ideal to have with you. This rental is perfect for a quiet retreat or family get together - ideally suited for 6 -8 guests but there is an additional small studio space available on the property for larger groups up to 10.

Ocean oasis at Blue Heron House!
Ocean oasis at Blue Heron House!
We had an amazing stay at this beautiful retreat… Hidden amongst the trees it offers a beautiful view of the ocean, you feel immersed in nature but with all the comforts of home. We also rented the studio style bachelor suite on the property; both are ideal for families and provides enough space to give privacy but also lovely common areas to come together to share meals. I started every morning with a hot tub over looking the beautiful water and at night we would finnsh the day by camp fire (no fire ban as of yet). We had 3 families which included 4 children and 1 dog... I would highly recommend this spot to any vacation seeker! The house and studio are beautifully decorated with true west coast inspired artwork and materials, it truly has a relaxing and calming feel that will make you forget the stresses of your everyday life.... On top of it all, the owner was very friendly and accommodating... we are counting down the days until we return next year! C.T.

About the owner: The Blue Heron House is owned and managed by Elizabeth John and Ken Thomson. The couple also own a whalewatching company, Ocean Outfitters, in Tofino BC as well a lovely boutique ' COVET' a sure delight for avid shoppers. www.covettofino.com
Why the Owner Chose Tofino:
The property was purchased as a raw piece of land in 2003. Chosen for its unique private position on a point of land overlooking Jensens Bay. The huge oldgrowth cedars were preserved as much as possible and what had to be removed for a building site were all used in the post and beam construction of the house. The house rental and studio were placed to be completely separate and private from each other.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Private, quiet, beautiful views, eagles, osprey, herons and a plethora of other birdlife. A great place to get out of the westerly wind and enjoy the sunshine!
